First of all, Patti could not more pleasurable person to have as your 'landlady'. Very efficient in terms of executing the contract and in keeping in contact. Based on that alone would I rent from Patti again.
Also though, the house was in excellent condition when we rented it for a three day weekend and we had a very memorable time there. Our favorite area to congregate (there were 8 of us there for a staff retreat/Mill Valley Film Festival) was in the back near the pool. We absolutely loved the ambiance with the tiki torches, the seating areas, the fountains and, our favorite, the fire pit. Many a long night was spent relaxing by that fire pit.
Inside was just as nice with plenty of bedrooms to choose from, nice and clean bathrooms and even a little 'apartment' area for our boss which was a little separated from the rest of the house. We were able to cook in the gorgeous kitchen and able to relax in the main living room. The location is great, only about a 10-15 minute drive into San Francisco, and we really liked the area.
This house is perfect if you're looking for a 'home away from home' and Patti is the perfect person to make that happen. I would completely recommend staying there!
