It's a RETREAT!

We stayed in this home for 6 months while house hunting in Marin. We were thrilled to find The Retreat, as we now affectionately call it. We moved in with our clothes and put just about everything else into storage. It was a bit daunting, but ultimately liberating.
We found this home to be so relaxing and cozy, it made it difficult for us to motivate and get to work! We felt like we were on an extended vacation. The sunlight in the kitchen is spectacular. The trees brushing the bedroom windows give the feeling of being in a tree house. And morning yoga in the living room, surrounded by beautiful Oak and Redwood trees, so peaceful. Our 2 boys also loved it, "I sleep so well surrounded by nature". Even our dog was happy - staying on the look-out for squirrels and the passing deer.
The Retreat feels deceptively remote with it's garden setting, the birds, the deer, the incredible trees. It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle, while still being able to walk everywhere: to the hiking trails, to downtown, to school, to the bus stop, and of course, to Picco.
The owners are generous and gracious, honest and compassionate; they were so helpful and accommodating as we negotiated our home purchase and our move out date. We had a wonderful experience and will recommend The Retreat to our friends and family.
