|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
We, the Kaplan family, are looking for a nice, responsible family to rent our home for select dates! We have a roomy, kid friendly home, located in a water community with large backyard including garden, zip line, trampoline, chicken coop, pool, dock, boat, 2 man kayak, and sandy beach on Novato creek with tikki torches! We are located in Novato California, ½ hour from beautiful San Francisco, the coast, Muir woods, and the Napa Valley! The house has four bedrooms (2 ½ bathrooms) which include 3 single beds, 1 double and 2 queen beds…there are three couches in the house and an elevated single inflatable bed that could be used for a larger group. Watch free Netflix movies on the home theater system or sing songs around our 1923 Ludwig baby grand piano. Or simply enjoy just relaxing and reflecting in our Christian home. We are definitely set up for people with kids…tons of toys, books, scooters, and bikes! We have great neighbors and could connect your family with locals to give you a non-touristy experience.
Key reasons why you would want to rent our home this summer~
· A convenient homey experience while on vacation!
· Less expensive.
· Lots of outdoor activities in the backyard...child’s zip line, chickens, organic flower garden, pool, basketball hoop, trampoline, beach, dock, boat, kayak, bikes and scooters!
· Close to San Francisco and many other beautiful places!
Hope to have you in our lovely home this summer….Sincerely, Stacey and Brian Kaplan

Our family of four adults and an 8 month old baby stayed for the week of Christmas. The Kaplan home is very warm and cozy, they even left the Christmas decoration up for us. Our visiting 5 year old twins loved all the play equipment especially the zip line. The master bedroom is very spacious. Look carefully at the other bedrooms as they are somewhat tight depending on your family. The Kaplan family is wonderful to work with and most helpful to take care of any needs. I highly recommend this for a memorable family vacation.

We are from the midwest so this house was perfect for us. We are not used to big city life. This house is in a quiet neighborhood with minimum traffic. The backyard with its pool, spa, waterway, chickens, and plants made you feel like you were in the country. It was easy to drive around the town and stores were very accessible. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. They sent us information ahead of time with recommendations of what to see, where to eat and shop. They sent a detailed list of how things worked in the house and left contact information in case we had any questions. This all made us feel better since we were in someone elses home. The house was perfect. There were 8 of us ranging from 11 years old to 70 years old. Everyone enjoyed themselves and were very comfortable in thel house. Beds were very comfortable also. I highly recommend staying here.
To celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary, my siblings, spouses, and I traveled to Novato, where our parents live. The house was clean, ready for guests, and felt like "home away from home". The Kaplans were so easy to work with and always anwered email questions promptly. The kitchen was fully equipped, the beds comfortable, and the backyard with the pool was beautiful! Our family held evening devotions, singing around the grand piano. We enjoyed sharing "remember whens" while gathered around the fire pit at the edge of the property, overlooking a scenic view. Highly recommend the Kaplan's vacation rental! Thank you, Brian and Stacey, for sharing your home with us!
Thanks for opening your lovely house up to us! We had a great time!
There was a lot of space for everyone to relax.
my oldest stepdaughter enjoyed playing chicken farmer.
The baby loved the pool, the swingset and the trampoline.
The area was beautiful and centrally located to the city, the beach, wine tasting.
Our family selected this property and owner for the first time for all of us to be together. Parents, children and spouses and grandbabies. Two birthdays and two anniversaries were celebrated. This is an absolutely amazing property for all ages. We loved collecting and eating the eggs from the chickens. The babies discovered strawberries in the garden and we soon had to watch them and keep them from picking before they were ripe. The large table is perfect for family breakfasts--the booth in the kitchen for late night homemade ice cream and sharing funny stories. The pool and hot tub were spectacular to use at night under the stars, with the tiki torches lit and a fire in the chiminea. Plenty of space and bathrooms for three couples. 20 minutes from Sonoma and Golden Gate bridge. The owners are complete professionals regarding the business arrangements and are the nicest people as well. The neighbors treated us like new family--the cute babies were probably the draw there. (smile). This week was a life long memory for our entire family and is now part of the fabric of our story. When you are in this home, it feels like a home that is loved and cozy. Other 'firsts' cousins playing the grand piano together. First climb up the slide. First 'lesson' between cousins, as one showed the other how to go up and down stairs. Family picnic on a wild beach at Reyes National Seashore. First dip in the pool for one cousin. First visits to Sonoma. First visits to Golden Gate and a fun family drive up and down Lombard street. Truly a treasure in everyway.
