Well appointed family oasis

  • 5 of 5
My family (my wife and I, 8 year old son and 3 year old daughter) just completed a delightful four day stay at Ken's house in Greenbrea. Both the house and location were perfect for us. The house beautifully shows Ken's attention to detail in both style and functionality. I would have brought his kitchen home with me if I could. It was a great lay out and fully equipped with quality wares - from the pots, pans, knives, appliances, dishes, flatware -- you name it. Both bathrooms were modern, functional and aesthetically pleasing. The master bathroom was exceptional - multiple showers, steam, and hi-tech commode. The back yard was spa-like - heated pool with room to lounge, hot tub, grill and dinner table. Linens were high quality and towels plentiful. Wi-Fi and central audio were also a plus.

We chose the location to be near family, but the house is perfectly located for trips North to wine country and south to SF. It is a very short drive to the 101. Also close to the luxe shopping spot at Larkspur Landing (Farmshop and Rustic Bakery, both awesome) as well as the shopping center at Sir Francis Drake which has everything you need from diner to grocery store. Both shopping areas are a couple of minutes away. We were well suited for exploring Marin and Sonoma counties, getting to Muir Woods, the Olompali Village, Point Reyes Stattion, Petaluma (Lagunitas Brewery was great for music, food and beer).

We will be back!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Ken's home was perfect for us. It was ideally located for our purpose.
The home is beautiful and modern. Meticulously maintained with everything we could have asked for. We loved the master bath so much we are duplicating at our home in Colorado. The pool was peaceful to be around even though we didn't swim much. Even the neighbors were helpful. Ken was a generous and easy to work with host. We feel blessed to have stayed there. Thanks Ken.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
Our family (husband and wife and two teenaged sons) enjoyed our recent stay at this property for a week’s vacation. The home is recently remodeled and nicely decorated and looks even better than the pictures show. We enjoyed all aspects of the home, from the large, well-equipped kitchen to the beautiful master suite with lovely walk-in closet and high-end bathroom amenities (heated floor and steam shower). The home offers many gathering places: the large kitchen island with bar stools, the two sitting areas with fireplaces, a beautiful dining room with large round table, as well as nice patio with BBQ, hot tub and swimming pool. There was plenty of room for our family of four as well as guests who enjoyed themselves at a family party. The house also has a good WIFI and sound system. The location is perfect for easy access to Marin destinations and San Francisco while feeling tucked away in a quiet neighborhood that is walking distance to Peet’s coffee and Mollie Stone’s. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. He responded immediately when we advised him that there was a leak in the hot tub and it was fixed in less than 24 hours. We would highly recommend this property.

Great long stay in a perfect, comfortable and modern setting!

  • 5 of 5
My family (2 young kids), wife and I stayed at this house for an extended stay after we had some significant water damage to our nearby house. The house is great, upgraded bathrooms (heated floors and toilet seats!) along with an amazing outdoor area (pool, Jacuzzi, and grill). The 2 bedrooms are spacious and office area was useful as a quiet study area overlooking the pool. Kitchen is great-chef like with big island, warming oven and dining room area. Master bath has an awesome steam function as well. There is a garage and house also has security system. Neighbors were great and location is perfect, right by shopping area and then 3 minutes to highway 101 which is another 15 minutes to golden gate bridge. We had a longer stay and Ken (owner) was very accommodating and great to work with. I would recommend this to any family or couple looking for a nice stay in Marin in a prime location with amenities. Marin has very few hotels and from a relative value especially given the space and amenities you get here, it works well.

What a great House and enjoyable stay five star !!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I needed a last minute place to stay after rejecting a home in Sausalito on Air B & B for false advertising.

Ken's home was amazing and he was incredibly accommodating. Beautiful kitchen, Master bath and entire setting. We had a fantastic time and thank Ken for making such great arrangements on short notice.
I am in the hospitality business and Ken's home and service were of the highest quality and he was so gracious.
Better than any hotel in Marin could ever be.
Cant go wrong.

Beautiful home and very responsive host

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home that is very well decorated, welcoming and modern. The pictures don't quite do it justice. We stayed with our two infant sons and their grandparents and had plenty of room for everyone (four adults plus the kids). Had a wonderful time using the BBQ.

Location is also perfect for us as it was not far from wine country or from San Francisco, and conveniently located off the highway, but on a quiet street. The house was also walking distance from a shopping area with a grocery store, coffee spot and a drugstore, making it very convenient.

The owner was very responsive in advance of our booking and was pro-active about calling to check if we had everything we needed in advance of the stay.

If we have reason to be in the area again, will definitely consider staying here again. Thanks for a wonderful time.
