Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at this house. The house is very comfortable and it was easy to go to Sonoma or to San Francisco. We especially liked that the house is very well suited for families with kids, with boy’s and girl’s rooms. Another thing we liked was the supermarket very nearby and the shopping center 5 minutes away with Target, Costco and Sport’s Authority. Ron and Kelly are great and it was very easy to do all the arrangements.

House is located in an excellent neighborhood in Domingo Canyon, Novato, with rolling hills all around and lots of biking and walking trails (see the map). Also within close proximity to grocery shopping (Safeway and Paradise market) and a top restaurant, Boca Steakhouse and Boca Pizzaria (both are highly recommended). House is within walking distance to Hoog Park, which has playground structure for children. Neighborhood is quiet and very safe, with a family-friendly atmosphere. Enjoy direct access onto Domingo Canyon Open Space Ridge that provides great views of the surrounding hills, Bel Marin Keys, Petaluma River and the bay. Enjoy surrounding nature while still being centrally located in beautiful Marin County. Marin is a large, forested region adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco to the South, and Napa and Sonoma Counties (aka “Wine Country”) to the East; arrive at these top tourist destinations by car in just a 30-40 minute drive.

Other Activities: some of my most favorite things to do are:

wine tasting in Sonoma or Napa. Taking a Limo to wine tasting regions are safe options (no driving). There is good shopping in Corte Madera. Kayaking, Boating in Sausalito harbor. Going to Larkspur Ferry Station (8 miles from the house) and taking the ferry to San Francisco and going shopping, sightseeing or simply walking around downtown. Also there are ample Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Health/Beauty Spa, Hot Air Ballooning in Napa, ice skating (Santa Rosa)and more

Golf: There are several golf courses in the area. The closest to the house is:

Marin Country Club (Private. They may allow non-members) You should call them well in advance. 0.5 miles from the house.

Ski: The closest ski resort is Sugar Bowl Ski Resort (near lake Tahoe) which is ~ 170 miles from the house. It can be done in one day, provided you leave early in the monring (5 AM) and hit the slopes at 9-10 AM and return at 5 and arrive back home around 9 PM.
