Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Fred!

Just a short note to thank you for providing us with shelter the last few days. We loved the neighborhood and found the home quite suitable for our needs. I would like to let you know that the water tap in the master BR dribbles constantly and should be attended to. Other than that, we found everything in good shape and the kitchen very nice, even tho we never did use the kitchen for cooking. We would gladly recommend your rental to anyone.

Best regards,

Fred & Kitty Meyer

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and another couple, our dear friends, needed a place that was located halfway between San Francisco and Sonoma, our two main destinations over the Labor Day weekend. This house was just the thing; we enjoyed the house itself a great deal (beautiful upgraded kitchen!) and the location was terrific. (Try the restaurant Crepevine in downtown San Raphael for breakfast or lunch!) The house was charming, large, and very comfortable, all for a great rental price. The owner, Fred, was an excellent communicator, and we were all very pleased with our stay. Highly recommend this property!

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this property twice now once for a weekend and just recently for 8 days. I travel up north quiet often and use vbro for my stays. Each time I look first at this property for availability as my first choice. It is extremely quiet and peaceful in this house. The kitchen is gorgeous and has everything you need to stay in to cook a great meal. The decor is all updated and the beds and linens are especially nice and comfortable. Parking is never a problem and the neighbors are super friendly. If you sit on the front porch you will see families, kids and dogs taking walks up and and down the street meaning this is a safe place to stay. Downtown San Rafael is just walking distance away and has everything from restaurants, grocery store, night life and fun shops. Overall it's a fantastic place to rent and the owner Fred is very accommodating and helpful. Thanks again Fred for another lovely stay see you again soon.

We loved this home!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here! Very comfortable, open, light. The dining room is great for a family meal and there is lots of space. Everything you need is there. Lots of Marin history, books, paintings. The neigbors are nice, very quaint street. Close to everything. We brought our pets and they loved it too! We have stayed for two years in a row and intend to go again. Great place to stay.

Nice apartment in San Rafael

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoy staying at this apartment with my daughter. It's a very calm and friendly place. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well-appointed, and the living spaces are large. It's clean and cozy. The downstairs neighbors are extremely kind and have never disturbed us. I think we (being upstairs) sometimes unavoidably disturb them, but they are very nice about it. I like the neighborhood. The owner is a caring and thoughtful person, and works to make things right if they aren't.

Horror story

  • 1 of 5
Ours is a horror story! At midnight, a woman unlocked the door into the kitchen. She was talking to the owner who had told her where the hidden key was located. We told her we had rented the house for 2 days. She left the house, but continued talking outside the house for another half hour. She then banged on the door saying the owner wanted to talk to me. When I read him the conformation e-mail, he finally agreed that indeed we had rented the place. The house was not cleaned properly. The kitchen floor was dirty; the bedroom had Kleenex pieces all over the floor; the bathroom had a wet rug in front of the toilet, and a full wast basket. Would I stay there again? NEVER. Would I recommend the place, NEVER! We paid a cleaning fee for a dirty house. He e- mailed me the next day apologizing for the inconvenience. He said he forgot to mark his calendar and double booked. What a way to run a business!

Owner's Response: What an unfortunate stay for you.
Unfortunately we overbooked because under special circumstances we allowed you to pay by check and it did not go thru pay pal and was not recorded on VRBO.
We immediately assessed the situation and rectified the problem with the incoming tenant by arranging for a hotel room nearby.
Out of this sorry experience we have learnt never again to allow tenants to pay by check.
We did have a substitute cleaner who will now no longer be our substitute . Our usual cleaning crew are excellent. I was out of town so I could not check the substitutes work.

Cute Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect home for our week stay in the bay area. The home was just perfect for the three of us and easily hosted our larger family for Thanksgiving. Great location, great neighborhood, and lovely home with a terrific kitchen. Fred couldn't have been a more pleasant host and we never notice the quiet neighbor living below. TVs are a problem if you need them... it is a bit of a Rube Goldberg system. We will definitely be back...a real unexpected treasure on our visit.
