Be courteous, tidy, but r-e-l-a-x-x-x. That's what it's here for.

Please, no smoking inside or around the house.

I ask that guests leave the place tidy and at least start the process of cleaning. Doing so allows me to keep the cleaning cost charges to guests low, keep people's attachment to the place high, allows for frequent return visits, and provides me with the joy of returning to a clean home. So far, it has worked well for everyone.

Our accommodations were amazing. We could not have chosen a better place to spend our celebration I can see why David has such great reviews. It was cozy and roomy enough for all 6 of us. The home had absolutely everything you would need right down to sugar for your coffee. I would highly recommend Davis beautiful retreat. He was also quick to respond back if I had any questions. Thank you for making our celebration an awesome one.

Davids home was perfect for our trip to San Francisco... it was in a quiet neighborhood about 30-45 minutes away from San Fran... the house was beautifully decorated and the backyard perfect for evening relaxing. We could spend the day in the hustle of the city yet have a place to spread out and relax in the evening! Thanks David!

The pictures do not do this home justice. The backyard was so lovely to enjoy my morning coffee. Updated fixtures in the home were amazing. There was even a cute park nearby with swings and a basketball court. With the house being just outside of San Francisco, traveling around was a breeze. David's place is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend!

Based on the description of David's place, I was already excited to be visiting, however, the place definitely exceeded my expectations. First off, David allowed for an early check-in just days before my arrival. Although flight delays interrupted my request to check in early, I really appreciate David agreeing to my request. :) The home was spotless! We really appreciated that fact that David requests guests to take off their shoes while in the house. It made a difference as our feet weren't dirty while walking all over the house, which had beautiful wood floors. The house was decorated nicely, the backyard was was refreshing and relaxing at the same time, & the beds.. I wish I had one at home. haha. The kitchen was also equipment with your every day essentials and more. We were able to whip up a dinner & had everything that we needed. It was definitely a great home, in a centrally located area. My friends and I planned day trips out in wine country, as well as in the city, and it was the perfect middle ground of the two areas. I have already told a few friends about David's home & I can't wait to come back myself!

Wow!! If you think the photos are amazing, David's place is actually even more beautiful and charming than the photos! The backyard space is truly peaceful! Lovely for an evening family card game and most peaceful with my morning cup of coffee! Plenty of room for me and my 3 adult children. Great quiet neighborhood and the perfect homebase to explore so many beautiful areas...SF, Mt Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Napa etc. We'll be back someday!

David User ProfileDavid is a superhost.

I enjoy the greatness and the beauty of the of the outdoors. Marin and Northern California offer the richness of the outdoors with the cultural amenities I also appreciate. I've loved traveling to, through and around over 60 countries over 6 continents. I still feel the deep exhale of coming home to a simple, beautiful, quiet, and comfortable place that I can call home, and that blurs the lines and invitation between outdoors and in. Simple touches of quality and detail matter to me. They speak throughout my home and my world. I hope they speak to a special few others, as well.
