Immaculate, WAY upscale home, the lower floor where we stayed was nice and cool (it was 100 degrees outside!) Ryan is very professional and accommodated our dietary requests promptly. The back yard and hot tub are private and first class. Ryan hands out a 4 page list of activities, restaurants, and local hotspots that is extremely helpful. We did, however, find out that the 2 Bird Cafe is by reservation only, take note!

Great quiet place to stay. Ryan is very nice and had great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. We were a little disappointed the jacuzzi wasn't working because it was a big reason why we picked it, but seems it was a last minute issue. Maybe just double check that before booking if it matters to you. But overall very comfortable.

Ryan is a very friendly host. What I needed was a comfortable bed in a quiet neighborhood. Both were perfect. I had the entire downstairs for myself, so it's very private. I only stayed one night and didn't have time to use any of the other features of the house but they were all looking fine to me.

Ryan was very accommodating which we really appreciated. He let us check in way before the check in time, he also recommended a great place to eat, he did everything he could to make our stay comfortable. The floor was private as the description stated and everything went as expected except for the noise level. The walls in this place are extremely thin. We heard everything.

Ryan was great about immediately getting in touch, telling us about the neighborhood, the accommodations and setting up a plan for making sure we had quick easy access when ever we arrived. His place was just what we needed: a full floor of the house, so quite private, located in central San Rafael - incredibly convenient and close to downtown restaurants, clubs and shopping. Ryan left a great list of restaurants and stuff to see and do. He checked with us during our stay to make sure everything was OK, but also gave us plenty of privacy. Great experience, great host. Highly recommend.
