My work takes me to Kenya, Nepal and Haiti and because of my frequent traveling, I rent out my beloved and sacred little cottage in San Rafael. It's a very special place and I hope you enjoy!

If you are a person who recognizes and responds to harmony of colors, this is your place. The rose garden was blooming and birds were singing, and all was right with the world. Perfect for getting one's thoughts together after a stressful time. Gloria was a wonderful host and responded quickly by e-mail to any questions. Muffin Mania, just down the street, provided good coffee and sweet delights at a reasonable price.
Good feedback about the coffee maker. I'll get one!
I recently had the pleasure of staying in Gloria's cottage for 2 weeks. My partner and I had originally only intended to stay a week, but ended up extending our trip because we were enjoying our stay so much. It is a beautiful place: peaceful, clean, and quiet. We spent a lot of time in the backyard enjoying the sun, and there are so many delicious restaurants just up the street. It was the perfect vacation away from busy city life. The pictures and description match the accommodation, and although I wouldn't describe many places as magical, I would certainly agree that this one has that quality. Gloria was a great host - very prompt with communication, flexible and friendly.
If I happen to travel to this area in the future I would definitely stay here again.
The hostess, the property and the neighborhood were very nice. I hesitate to say "magical" as it has been used in prior reviews but it really does define this property. Gloria is a special person and I am glad to have met her. I recommend this place to anyone seeking peace, tranquility and modern day conveniences.
Gloria's place is truly a Magical, quiet garden cottage. Her cheerful space is full of art, color, and permeated with elements of nature ... my stay here has helped me to find a new perspective... the neighborhood is charming and full of surprises ... it is situated merely a few blocks from downtown... Good Choice! Enjoy!
It was indeed a magical quiet garden. Picture Nirvana meeting Shangra-La (the place...not the band..Nirvana). It is charming, comfortable and has the coolest vibe, furnishings, and the shower and tub are both the best. Gloria was warm, welcoming and a wonderful host. She opens up a very personal space and allows you to share in it! We loved the set up, and the cozy sleeping space was the best rest we have had so far on our adventure. You can walk to some great restaurants and everything is really convenient to where her place is. Zen and I highly recommend her place..and she is a great resource for hikes and things to do (yoga etc..)
Gloria was a lovely guest, very easy and considerate, interesting and fun. She stayed quite a while as she does good work in Nairobi with disadvantaged women. I hope she returns some day.
Thanks, Bruce. I loved meeting you and Sonia!
