You'll be greeted with fresh bread and homemade jam in our space in a quiet neighborhood. A queen-sized bed, sofa (twin bed pull-out), coffee, a mini-fridge, and a microwave are here for you to enjoy. In November of 2017, we installed new floors and a new door. The update has created an even more beautiful and well-lit space!

We're walking distance to downtown & public parks. 5-15 minute drives to great hikes and bicycle paths, 30-45 mins into San Francisco, East Bay & Wine Country.

Great place, SUPER CLEAN and comfy. This was our 2nd stay and I definitely recommend. The communication is great and the extra attention to love (and snacks!) is amazing. It's close to restaurants, walking and freeway. We'll be back again.

Sara and Marcus’s place is cozy, clean, and in great location. I felt right at home during my stay. I also appreciated the home made bread and jam so much! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to a friend.

Sara and Marcus's place has lots of thoughtful touches, from the home backed bread and snacks, to the toiletries and instructions. It is clean and well turned out, and plenty of space for a studio. I enjoyed my stay, and especially enjoyed meeting Gimle the cat!

Nice quiet neighborhood. Spotty cell service in the area, just be aware. The beds are on the very hard side, which works if that's your preference. The guest room is in the daylight basement of the home and the owner's room seems to be right above it so there is a lot of floor …
