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.
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.
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.

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!
