The space

Cottage in Marin on the Bay- overlooks an Audubon preserve (Triangle Marsh) with views of the water. A quiet respite from the hustle of the City, but yet less than a half hour away. Close to San Francisco, Marin Headlands, nature preserves/open space, wine country and charming other smaller Marin towns such as Larkspur, Fairfax and San Anselmo. Walking distance to Ring Mountain and mid-point for access to Marin Headlands, Muir Woods, Mt. Tam and Hawk Hill.

Guest access

You will have the whole house to yourself with a basic kitchen (2 burner induction cooktop, oven, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, tea kettle). Parking on street. No washer and dryer available on site but there are 2 nice laundromats nearby in downtown Corte Madera and Larkspur (next to a donut shop!)

Interaction with guests

Property is managed by Guesthop. They are the contact for the reservation and any issues.

The neighbourhood

Quiet Marin neighborhood. Close to San Francisco, Sausalito, nature preserves/open space and wine country. Minutes to Larkspur Ferry. Walking distance to Ring Mountain. Access point to Marin Headlands, Muir Woods, Hawk Hill. Lots of bicycle paths and safe routes to the ferry and hiking areas.

View of the inner bay and nature preserve from the house.

Getting around

Bicycle access to nearby shopping malls, ferry and shuttles to Marin Headlands and Mt. Tamalpais, etc.

Other things to note

- Sorry - no pets due to the proximity to the preserve. Coyotes, skunks, bobcats hunt pets periodically in the area unfortunately ;{

- OK for kids (5+ and up) - not baby proofed.

- During school year (mid September-May), traffic and parking may be impacted for school across the street. Street clears quickly after 8AM and 3PM

- No indoor or outdoor fires due to burn bans and air quality restrictions. Area can be windy in the evenings due to proximity to the water (and like much of the area near San Francisco, Sausalito, mid - Peninsula, etc.)

- No washer and dryer available but there are 2 nice laundromats nearby in downtown Corte Madera and Larkspur.

- 2 burner induction cooktop, coffee maker, microwave, oven, toaster oven, tea kettle, pots and pans. There is a dedicated refrigerator for guests. For groceries, Nuggets Markets (URL HIDDEN) is walking distance with prepared foods- highly recommend these for most guests or the restaurants at the nearby malls:

Corte Madera has 2 large open area malls - The Village at Corte Madera and Town Center at Corte Madera. Shops include Tesla (and outdoor charging stations,) Nordstroms, Starkbucks, REI, Barnes & Noble, Restoration Hardware, Lucy's. Wide array of restaurants - Il Fornaio, California Pizza Kitchen, Cheesecake Factory, Pig n Pickle, Vietnamese food, etc.

Downtown Larkspur also has a number of restaurants and also offers another large outdoor shopping and common entertainment area at Larkspur Landing with outdoor events and food trucks on the weekend (right near the ferry.)

Respect our neighbors, house rules, nearby nature preserves and Marin and enjoy your stay!

I love being close to nature, but still being only a short ride to the sites of San Francisco. I am happy to be able to travel and see the world, and share my home with others looking to do the same.
