Michael and Fotine were very kind and made me feel comfortable and at home throughout my stay. They were happy to chat about restaurant recommendations and hiking trails, but they also gave me plenty of space to do my own thing. I would definitely stay with them again. They have a lovely little garden and back yard area for meals or just to enjoy the sun.
Lovely hosts, clean, comfortable bedroom and private bathroom. Convenient, quiet location and short walk to downtown San Rafael. Great value. Highly recommended
Michael and Fotine were very welcoming and hospitable. Their home is well located and quiet despite its proximity to the freeway. The bed was very comfortable! Their backyard is a lovely place to spend time and the neighborhood is good for walking. We appreciated meeting these wonderful people and hope to see them again soon!
Michael and Fotine were ideal airbnb hosts- they welcomed me into their comfortable home, were friendly and generous, and respected my privacy and independence. The bedroom is just right- quiet, good size, tidy and clean, VERY comfortable bed and bed linens (spoiled me- now I'm shopping for a memory foam mattress topper!), and strong wifi signal. The private bathroom has what a guest needs, and is also very tidy and clean. On my way out, they shared some of the wonderful fresh baked goods that they had just purchased at the farmer's market. Michael and Fotine are kind, intelligent folks, and I am very grateful for their fairly priced and gracious accommodations. Highly recommended.
Michael and Fotine were friendly and helpful hosts. Their location is great- easy access to the city, without being right in the hustle and bustle. The space is clean and cozy, with a private bathroom. Definitely recommended.
My daughter and I were over from Scotland visiting family in San Anselmo, We had a really lovely stay with Michael and Fotine in their charming house. The bed was super comfortable - we slept like angels - the room was perfect and everything was clean, tidy and very inviting.
Michael and Fotine are delightful people - interesting, well travelled, highly educated, very welcoming and super helpful as well as kind and compassionate. We loved getting to know them. . It transpired that Fotine was a good friend of my sister-in-law who lives in Oregon so that was an unexpected bonus - what a small world!
I really hope to meet them again the next time we are in San Francisco.
Michael and Fotine are warm and welcoming hosts. My wife and I were well taken came of during our stay. The room and bath are very clean and we'll appointed. Their home is located on a quiet street. It is a short walk to downtown San Rafael in one direction and nature walking/hiking trails in the opposite direction. We plan to stay with them again.

This is our second experience staying with Michael and Fotine. They are gracious hosts. The room and private bath are clean, attractive, and comfortable. The warm flannel sheets and fluffy towels are appreciated. Located on a quiet street within walking distance of downtown San Rael is a plus.
Great place & hosts! A most hospitable stay for my visit to San Rafael, CA to attend the National Bioneers Conference! Michael & Fotine were very helpful & great people! I wish I could move there!
My husband and I spent four pleasant nights in the lovely home of Michael and Fotine. Our room and bath were comfortable, clean and welcoming. Our only regret was that, because we were out all day every day visiting our nearby grandchildren, we did not have an opportunity to get to know these nice people. We come to San Rafael often, and we would love to stay here again.
Michael and Fotine rented my home for three nights during a return visit to Marin and the SF North Bay. In all manner, it was truly a pleasure to have them as guests. Thoughtful and kind, they were easy to coordinate and communicate with from the beginning and throughout. They were self-sufficient, cared for my home, were appreciative of the details and design, and were caring in the little and grand ways. My place was in great condition on their departure. The way they left my home made it very easy for me to come back as if I'd never been away. Hooray! Guests like Michael and Fotine make the Airbnb experience first rate and well worth it. Based on my experience, I invite them back any time, and easily and readily recommend them to anyone!
Such a delight to meet Michael and Fotine! I really enjoyed having them here. They are so interesting and fun to chat with! I would welcome them back anytime...they left the guest room so very neat and tidy!! Perfect guests. I loved their enthusiasm for the Mendocino area...they brought their bikes and they explored beaches around the area as well. See you again Michael & Fontine!
