Why the Owner Chose San Rafael: San Rafael is so central, has great restaurants and shops and has events all year long. Visit the city of San Rafael website for a list of events. Or go toDowntown San Rafael website for map of town. The Mission and the Rafael Film Center (Mill Valley Film Festival) are both here also!
This guest cottage is private and charming - from the moment I entered the gate the scent of the foliage and a large orange tree in the garden welcomed me. Even though the weather was cold, the owner arranged the main room and bedroom to be warm and cozy upon arrival. The location is perfect for strolling or short walks to the center of town and close to excellent markets for food shopping. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Large flat screen in living room and smaller in bdrm. It's in a quiet area which was important. So was the non smoking policy. The owner makes one feel very welcome.
