I was born in Australia and moved to California 30 years ago. I travel back and forth to Australia often and spend the winters in Hawaii. I always love coming back to beautiful Marin County. It is where I raised my children and it is where my circle of wonderful friends live.

Jan Mendez purchased this house in 2002

I chose this property as it was in a perfect and private location and was the perfect house to transform from ordinary to extraordinary. It underwent extensive renovations from 2004-2006. I hired an engineer rather than an architect as I wanted to design the house myself. It has awesome views, beautiful outdoor areas including a private hillside picnic area, swimming pool and spa.

It's private and tranquil setting, expansive views and sunny location. Centrally located in beautiful Marin County.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The family based in both the Midwest and North Carolina met here to enjoy each other's company and explore the greater Bay Area. The house was fabulous and comfortable with incredible views. There was plenty of room to relax and spread out. Up on the top of a hill the privacy of this house is unmatched. A very enjoyable rental.

AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN A GREAT LOCATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were unfortunately unable to stay here for but 3 days, but wish that we could stay here forever. Although the roads leading up to the house may not be for the faint-hearted, the views are stunning. The rooms are large, the master bedroom is beyond large. The dining room has a fantastic view. The photographs do not do this house justice!
A few minutes of driving will take you to the quaint town of San Anselmo, and a little more will take you to San Rafael.
Highest Recommendations!!

PRIVATE ZEN LIKE RETREAT - TOTAL PRIVACY! LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here over the July 4th weekend. OMG..this home was designed right out of Dwell Magazine. Gorgeous and quiet...just what we needed. Enjoyed the pool everyday; and never wanted to leave, which we basically didn't. Sunshine all day long. It was a slice of Heaven for sure. Highly recommend to VRBO. You will not be disappointed!
