SAN FRAN VACARION

  • 5 of 5
This home is exactly as describe d's location is perfect for a vacation in San Fran - out of the way but not too far and Sausalito (a great little town) is nearby as well. We were greeted with complimentary wine, beer and cheese - hard to beat that start. The home is in great condition and the outdoor seating is just so relaxing in this quiet neighborhood. I had read that the beds were great ..... and wow they were - maybe the most comfortable I've ever slept in - should have gotten the name. Owners are great too work with providing info and available if you need them. I would definitely rent this home again and strongly recommend it.

BEAUTIFUL HOMINESS

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home with welcoming feel, open and sunny. It feels like "family" and very loved. My two friends and I were here to attend a workshop in Woodacre and this was a perfect location to visit downtown San Rafael and also travel through it with ease. The homes exterior is also well done and everything was perfect. Thank you!

LOVELY BUNGALO FLAT!

  • 5 of 5
We visited San Rafael for a weekend workshop and the three bedroom flat was a perfect match to our needs. We were delighted with the details that the owner attended to. Cheese and wine in the frig, spices, canned goods, in the cupboards, and much more!!

The bedding and towels were luscious, and the beds comfortable. We spent the evenings sitting on the patio, enjoying the beautifully landscaped yard, and soaking in the hot tub. We will be back!!!!

GREAT FIND FOR GRADUATION

  • 5 of 5
We had waited too long to secure rooms for Dominican's graduation and found this lovely gem. My sister was overjoyed to have her family under one roof again. It was so close we could see the University from the kitchen window! The photo's were right on with the way the house really is.
Some of us enjoyed the hot tub and the lovely views of the hill side. We didn't have much time to sight see and hope next time we will.

SHHH...WE'LL LET YOU IN ON ONE OF MARIN'S BEST KEPT SECRETS!

Shhh...We'll let you in on one of Marin's Best Kept Secrets!
  • 5 of 5
How lucky were we to discover this jewel! Set in the picturesque and historic Dominican neighborhood, Highland Home captures everything we had heard about one of Northern California's most sought-after and diverse communities.

This enchanting bungalow flat exceeded our high expectations. You know how it is when you take a chance on a new travel accommodation. You wonder what you will really find once you've arrived. Let us set your mind at rest! Highland Home wrapped its arms around all of us like the best sort of fairy tale cottage. Prepare yourself for Beauty, Comfort, all the Wonderful Amenities, and the unexpected views (make sure and "see" the view from the kitchen window above the sink) WOW! Within hours of our arrival, we all felt as though we had "come home" and toasted our good fortune with delicious wine on the lovely patio.

On our first morning, we found it only took us ten minutes to walk from the flat to San Rafael's famous 4th Street featured in one of our favorite classic films, George Lucas's American Graffiti. We returned to 4th Street every day to enjoy the lovely cafes, shopping and award-winning restaurants. Everyone was so friendly, offering us warm welcomes and asking where we were from. After only 3 days, we began to feel like "locals".

When we ventured out to explore the area, we discovered many amazing places so close by! At the top of our list we recommend: Fred's Coffee Shop in Sausalito for breakfast or The Dipsea Café in Mill Valley. The drive over Mt. Tamalpais to the Golden Gate National Recreational Area is still vivid in our minds! If you're prone to car sickness, make sure and pop a Dramamine before making the drive. Some of those hair-pin turns are doozies but well worth it when you arrive at the rugged and breath-taking coast of West Marin. The Pelican Inn at Muir Beach is a wonderful place to stop. The giant redwood trees are just down the road. They are a majestic and unforgettable Cathedral of Nature. If you continue on to Stinson Beach, make sure and check-out the Sand Dollar. It is quirky, fun and serves a delicious hot toddy on a foggy afternoon.

THANK YOU to our hosts, Sally and John, for offering their amazing flat on VRBO and for going the extra-mile to make sure we were having a GREAT time and had EVERYTHING WE NEEDED. We love your wonderful Highland Home. We can't wait until next time and hope to book-in for a month!
