We were not sure what to expect from this rental, as it's in an over-55 community. Everything was just right. The accommodations were very nice with good furnishings. Lots of storage area, and covered secure parking.

Free breakfast for two; order from the menu. Try to stay on Sunday, because there's a buffet that would make the Waldorf proud. I had omlettes cooked to order, lots of fruit, leg of lamb, rice, vegetables, and a wonderful dessert. Wonderful large library close to the entrance.

The condo sits atop a ridge line about 500 feet above the surrounding area, so the view from the balcony is spectacular.

Outside, the property is surrounded by a wide walkway with many benches, flower beds and wonderful views. My wife told me she'd be happy to stay another week. Me too!
Owner's Response: Thanks Edward - glad you enjoyed your stay!

This was a 2 week golf/sightseeing vacation. Golf 1 day in the Sonoma Valley and the next sightsee in San Fran. An excellent, central location for both. 30 min. by highway to downtown S.F. Parking in the city was easy (with a gps) and relatively cheap at any of the many lots ($15/day). Better than staying in the city and parking for 24 hours, and cheaper too!

A very nice retirement home. Anita is easy to deal with. The residents are friendly. Parking secure. Laundry by the elevator. Fully prepared breakfast each morning in the dining room. Just as advertised in VRBO (photos, amenities etc). There is a mall at the bottom of the hill with Panda Express, BJ's Brewhouse etc if you don't want to cook lunch/dinner. Didn't feel awkward staying at a retirement home as some of the residents informed us that many relatives visit and stay at different units in the building to be close by. A very well maintained and tastefully decorated place. We'd definately stay there again.

This beautiful one bedroom apartment was our most favorite stay so far!. The views were magnificent, the unit is beautifully decorated, with a full kitchen. The dressing area and bathroom are very roomie and the living room/dining room quite comfortable. It was immaculate with new appointments. The parking is very convenient to the elevator as it the unit. The Sunday brunch was "to die for" - - - better food you wouldn't find in a 5 star restaurant!! I'd recommend booking your stay so that part of it falls on a Sunday to take advantage of this marvelous brunch. San Rafael is a beautiful city offering everything you need for a wonderful "vacation" experience. It's close enough to San Francisco that you can go into the City for an evening at the Top of the Mark or take in the symphony and drive back over the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge to your comfortable accommodations in San Rafael without much effort. You won't be disappointed with your stay in Anita's accommodations.
