My husband and I are journalists and work on the internet and TV. We have 2 kids, 10 and 14 years old, and live an active, healthy life.
Das Haus ist wunderschön und sehr gemütlich. Es ist außerdem wunderbar ruhig gelegen, hat einen sehr schönen Garten und verschiedene sonnige Sitzgelegenheit im Freien. Lisa war eine sehr nette, freundliche Gastgeberin, zudem äußerst großzügig, da sie gar nichts dagegen hatte, dass wir statt wie angemeldet zu viert zu sechst in ihrem Haus übernachteten. Wir verbrachten vier herrliche Tage in Fairfax. Die Unterkunft können wir uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
We really enjoyed our long weekend in the Star House in Fairfax. It is in a beautiful location and the house held lots of fun surprises, from the gas fire pit up on the hillside to the ping pong table in the basement. There was plenty of room for us and our three adult children. The kitchen is connected to the living space so we spent a lot of time cooking, chatting and hanging out together there. The floors are connected by ladders, which is entertaining if a bit challenging at times! There are outside stairs for those who may be less able, and this house would not be a good fit for people with mobile disabilities.
The neighborhood is very interesting and the shops and restaurants in Fairfax were a 15 minute walk away, which we enjoyed.
It's really generous of Lisa and her husband to share their fantastic home. Lisa was welcoming us with open arms and they really want you to enjoy the house like they do. The house in on a beautiful location, with amazing views. Fairfax at it's best! We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to rent the house again.

We really enjoyed our time in the Star House, which indeed is special in many ways, its unusual architecture, its friendly and open design, its wonderful views and nice garden area. Being there a couple of summer days it has very quickly turned out the be an ideal base not only for Fairfax, a nice little town in the area, but also to explore greater S.F. area at all. Although never met personally, Lisa was a very nice host, trustful, responsive, reliable and - in the word's best sense - uncomplicated. Thanks for all ...
We LOVED the Star House. Beautiful. Great location and perfect home base to explore Fairfax and Marin. We fell in love with the sweet town of Fairfax. Lisa was so easy to work with and responsive. Our kids enjoyed the ladders to each of the different levels of the house-cool idea! Also, the view from both the house and the seating area up the hill is stunning. We highly recommend!
I stayed at Lisa's place during the winter break and it was ideal for many reasons. It was situated in a secluded, quiet house with absolutely beautiful views. It was also, for our needs close enough to San Francisco, Napa but a little bit away from too much urban activity. Fairfax is also a lovely, friendly town with cute restaurants and cafes.
The house was quite airy and the open kitchen area was nice to be able to share a communal space. We did go in winter so it's too bad we couldn't enjoy more of the outdoor spaces, but nonetheless, it was a great experience. Lisa was clear and easy to communicate with and made the transaction quite easy.
We have a 2-year old toddler and this house was perfect for us! Fairfax is a lovely small town - great local restaurants, parks and lots of trees. The "star" house is filled with air and light and has such an amazing view of the surrounding mountains that you would be totally happy not venturing out. We did take a few day trips though (late July) - Muir Woods, Point Reyes, Sausalito, Napa and Golden Gate Park - all of the the drive times were between 30 - 45 minutes. The hosts were lovely and we really enjoyed the yard, which includes gardens, gorgeous mountain views and a trampoline. The kitchen is super roomy and inviting. Fairfax is far enough from the Golden Gate to avoid too much fog and marine layer, we enjoyed sunny mornings. This was our first Airbnb trip and it was stellar. We would happily stay at this location again! Fairfax = relax!
comfortable,rustic home with all conveniences, walking distance to charming hamlet with mulitple sevices--cafes, theatre, and shops.
very nice family
thoroughly enjpoyable stay
my family loved it
My family and I had the great pleasure to rent the Start House of Fairfax for nine days during the winter holidays. We loved it and would do it again. The house if fun, and has the most beautiful views of the mountains. And the town of Fairfax is Groovy. Lisa and Sam are great hosts. And the house was everything and more as per their listing in airBnB. So 5 stars!
Guest requested late check out- On late check out usually people take out the trash and at least do the dishes. The cleaners said the house was left dirty and she never complains. Hope on future stays you pick up a little before departure.
I have known Lisa for over 8 years and highly recommend her to other Airbnb members. Lisa and her husband and I owned a vacation rental property together for over two years. Lisa always went out of her way to make vacationers feel welcomed and have a wonderful time. Lisa and her family also travel extensively, are very flexible and easygoing, and couldn't be more trustworthy! Whether they are visiting or hosting, I'm sure that whoever comes in contact with them will be glad to have met such nice people!
I have known Lisa for about 30 years (yes, since childhood)- and can attest that she is one of the most resourceful, adventurous, reliable, and resilient people I have met. She thinks "out of the box" and lives her values. She is a world traveler - and knows high-end, shoe-string and pretty much everything in between. She goes for responsibility consciousness and value and does not waste (time, money or energy) - she envisions new possibilities, speaks her mind, laughs a lot and is a great friend. I would trust her perspective and follow her lead - be it to stay where she has or offer what I have.
Lisa is a great host. Her attention to detail is always perfect. I stayed at her home in Windsor and it was always well cared for and comfortable. She keeps lists of near by things to do, neighbors numbers, etc. I recommend anything she does because she has integrity and does it great.
