Your home away from home while visiting the SF-Bay Area.

Enjoy it all... simple appointments wrapped in mid-century charm, a central location on the edge of downtown San Rafael with easy access to the area's countless activities, and the tranquility of nature that invites you to kick off your shoes, relax and replenishing the soul.

A fresh bottle of water and small treat welcome your arrival.

EV travelers, your car can now recharge too! Or, for use of a car, see the Getting Around section.

The space

A cozy, clean bedroom and private ensuite bathroom with tiled shower and views to the back patio/hillside above await you within a peaceful and quiet house. On warm afternoons you'll often see a family of deer resting right outside the window.

Wake up recharged after a wonderfully restful sleep on the full-sized (double) bed's firm, yet incredibly comfortable mattress that's wrapped in quality linens and hypoallergenic comforter/pillows, all washed in organic, allergy-free detergent. And for those who like to sleep in late, simply pull down the black-out shades and enjoy no distractions. But be warned, guests who are normally early risers have slept till 11am!

Fresh towels, soap, and shampoo are provided along with a hair dryer, iron/ironing board, and lint brush conveniently located in the cedar lined closet. A new toothbrush and toothpaste can also be found in bathroom's mirror cabinet, if needed.

Guest access

Enjoy the living room's comfy down feather or reclining leather sofas while watching TV, reading a book, or playing a game of scrabble, chess, backgammon, or checkers. Maybe do some work at the dining room or kitchen tables, or hang out on the back patio with a BBQ and fire pit.

Interaction with guests

I work from home so may be around depending upon the day and time. You will still have complete enjoyment of the house.

Having grown up in the area, I'm happy to provide suggestions for places to explore or enjoy a delicious meal.

Other things to note

Morning tea is available upon request.

For hassle-free airport transportation and use of a Toyota Prius during your stay, please read about the Deluxe Package option in the Getting Around section.

Eric's a fantastic host. Extremely thoughtful, detail oriented with the perfect balace of being friendly and present while also respectful of privacy. His house is a vintage gem that feels like a treehouse sanctuary. I can't wait to stay again.

Eric was one of the greatest Airbnb hosts we've had to date. He was very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable in his clean, cozy home. We really enjoyed talking to him throughout our stay. We truly appreciate how he values making a connection with the people he hosts, as that's not something we typically run into.

Response from Eric:
It was great meeting you both! I enjoyed our conversations, and I'm happy you two were able to get to check out Yosemite. You'll have to come back and explore the area a bit more next time.

Got to see a baby deer and raccoon. Waking up and looking into the awesome wood side mountain is definitely refreshing. Eric was a great host:)

Eric was an amazing host! I accidently got my reservation dates mixed up and he was nice enough to bring me in for one night while I figured out my situation. The room was nice and the bathroom was very clean! The house is located on the top of a hill and the views are beautiful. 10/10 would reccomend Eric and his house to anyone!

Overall, Eric was an excellent host. He was very easy to communicate with, especially before check-in, and we had a great experience staying with him. Eric greeted us with a fresh fruit and kale smoothie when we arrived, then showed us around his home- it was very clean and cozy. Unfortunately we were exhausted from a long day of hiking at Muir Woods, so it was an early night for us. We only spent one night and left early the next morning, so we really didn't get to enjoy Eric's company and his comfy home like we would have liked to- but next time we come back into town, we'll definitely try to stay much longer. Thanks again, Eric!

An SF-Bay Area resident since the age of two, I've traveled near and far but have always come back to this little slice of paradise. Though it's been fascinating to see this area grow so much over the years, the great weather and many local cultural activities available never get old. When I'm not providing business operations and technology consulting services to companies, I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, meeting new people and expanding the mind every now and then by exploring the world and experiencing a different culture. During the busier times, being an AirBnB host is a fun way to still do some of this. Favorite pastimes include having meaningful, thought-provoking conversations, listening to great jazz or good ol' rock-n-roll by a good cover band, or simply kicking back with a great group of people and some delicious food/wine. Hopefully our paths will cross during this life's great journey!
