We are long term residents in Fairfax & would enjoy sharing our beautiful environment with those who would appreciate it.
Thank you for this experience. The listing is so accurate and true. What an OMazing sacred space - Ana was a fabulous hostess leaving me Mango Lemonade and eggs in the fridge and beautiful flowers everywhere. Her space is so cozy and lovely and full sized for one or two people. And Ana has really thought of every detail to make my stay effortless and fun. Fluffy towels and even a sarong for use to and from the jacuzzi. A fully stocked kitchen and Jenga too. Woohoo!!!
I loved the view of the garden and the hot tub right outside and a hiking path five minutes up the road from the casita. Seeing the stars at night in this peaceful neighborhood and hiking as the sun rose made me so happy.
I felt so blessed to be here and I walked to and from town every day under the delightful trees and the meandering roads. Returning to my private oasis and settling in to the comfort of the casita and opening the french doors and smelling the flowers and hearing the birds - exquisite.
Thank you Ana and Mario for opening up your sacred space. I will definitely be returning again once I wander into your neck of the woods.
My son and I had a really lovely time at the casita and we were so sad to leave! The casita is tucked away in a wooded and lush environment and was perfect for enjoying the natural beauty of Fairfax. The property itself was modern, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen had all the amenities and supplies I needed to cook dinner every night which was really convenient. Ana and Mario were awesome, communicative hosts who checked in regularly and made sure we were enjoying the casita. We did not get a chance to use the hot tub but it was nice to know it was an option. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone who wants to get a sense of what it'd be like to live in the Fairfax area day to day, or for those who would like a homebase in Fairax for exploring the numerous hiking and biking trails Marin has to offer. Thank you Ana and Mario!
Ana was very gracious. She gave us a nice tour of the Casita and made us feel at home. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and found the Casita to be a private sanctuary surrounded by trees and a lovely garden. The Casita was clean and nicely decorated. The jacuzzi was especially nice and we enjoyed spending the evenings under the full moon. The Casita is close to downtown Fairfax making exploring the restaurants and shops very easy. I look forward to my next trip to Fairfax and would definitely return to the Casita!!
To say this place is amazing falls short. Ana and Mario provide a luxury casita! Everything is new, beautiful and thoughtfully designed.The attention to details are impeccable. High ceilings, graceful hardwood floors, stylish modern furniture, vases full of fresh flowers and french doors that open into a peaceful yard keep the casita full of fresh air and natural light. They even provided us with complimentary eggs, organic lemonade, and Coffee.The property is gorgeous and serene with an elegantly manicured garden, exquisitely planned. The hot tub is set in a roofless gazebo so you can look at the stars while you soak at night.
If you have never been to Fairfax before this is a perfect place to start. Downtown is a three or four minute drive but an even better walk where you will find Good Earth Grocery(the famous organic grocery), Lotus Organic Indian food, Avatar burrito, a movie theatre, and a bunch of fun bars. If nature is your thing and you like to hike you can walk 100 feet from your door into a stunning nature preserve, a local favorite, complete with waterfall. Fairfax is magical place, home to huge trees, sunlight and silence.
I could not recommend this place any higher. If you are looking for a getaway in Marin this would be a great place to make home base. Sausalito, Mill Valley, Larkspur, and San Anselmo are all super close. We will be coming back here again and again. Five stars and two thumbs up!
Thank you Ana and Mario!
We had an amazing time at the Casita in Fairfax! It was a peaceful getaway and felt very private. It's located a short distance outside of downtown Fairfax- either a 25 minute walk, or 8 min bike ride to great restaurants and cafes. We biked from SF, and were greeted by Ana, who was very hospitable and gave us tips on what to do and where to eat in Fairfax. She left fresh eggs and juice in the fridge- a lovely touch! The apartment was spotless and well decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for ourselves. The hot tub was great- we loved watching the stars from the hot tub at the end of our days at the casita. Bed was extremely comfy as well and we were able to catch up on some much needed sleep!
Ana and Mario were great! Very friendly and left us goodies in the fridge for our stay. And their place is beautiful. Thanks Ana and Mario!
We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and relaxed. The casita was very, very clean and accommodating. The views of the garden was peaceful, quiet and private. The hot tub was perfect and very convenient. We will definitely be returning again. We loved the nearby mountain biking and hiking as well as touring the Cheese Trail. Thank you for letting us share your space.
Ana and Mario's casita is a gorgeous and peaceful place to spend a weekend getaway. It was perfect for what I wanted to do, which was relax for a few days while working on projects. It's extremely convenient to Fairfax for groceries, coffee, etc., but still feels isolated and amidst natural beauty. Also, Mario and Ana themselves are extremely helpful and accommodating, but also very respectful of their guests' privacy.
Overall I had an excellent sojourn and it was exactly what I was hoping for!
great rental. cute, quite, nicely decorated, beautiful gardens. easy hosts to coordinate with, and a great cute nearby town. very happy with experience - its why i keep renting it : )
Adorable and cozy, just as advertised. We'll definitely be back!
We are long time friends of Ana and Mario and we are delighted that they have decided to share their little piece of heaven. We often visit them to get away from our busy city life and it is always a pleasure. Their property is nestled among a creek, trees and beautiful natural surroundings. We always take advantage of the nearby hiking.
We met Ana and Mario when we were in our early twenties and they have mentored us through our adult lives. They love to travel, garden, cook and enjoy good company. They have an amazing respect and love for mother earth and all its beings.
I highly recommend their "casita" as a place for relaxing and soaking up nature. I always feel nurtured and replenished when I stay there.
