Lovely house with great pool!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the owners must keep that turtle float; we looked forward to relaxing on it every day after sightseeing. The private outdoor area (pool, hot tub, abundant seating, tree chair) is the best part, really another living area. The house itself is comfortable with a large kitchen, comfortable living room, and two decent sized bedrooms, although the child's bedroom is small. A nice luxury is that every bedroom has an attached bathroom. Unlike renting a family's vacation condo, it was a little awkward to live out of a suitcase (or off the floor) for a week because the closets and drawers are filled with the homeowners' clothes. Parallel parking in the driveway can be a challenge since there is little extra space off the windy canyon road and I was certainly glad that our rental car was no minivan; I have no idea where guests would park their cars and one has to be careful when walking on the windy street with no sidewalks. We enjoyed the restaurants and shops of Fairfax and of nearby St. Anselmo, and we also recommend strongly the Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and the Thai food restaurant in Fairfax. Although we never found the ferry to San Francisco, we did okay parking in the city as long as we just parked once and then hoofed it around for the rest of the day. We do recommend going to Muir Woods and wine country on weekdays if you hate crowds.

We stayed at this family's house for over 3 weeks during Summer 2012 and enjoyed it so much.
The house stays cool at night for resting and peacefull nights, it's beautifully furnished and has personnal pieces of arts and pictures throughout that makes you feel very comfortable and at home.
It's very bright with skylights and a lot of windows facing the pool, the yard and the "terrace". It's got plenty of space for a family of 4 to 5, the pool area is great to take a nap under the apple trees, to play around, to have friends over for dinner. It's got a fully equiped kitchen, a BBQ, several umbrellas, benches, chairs to stay by the pool. Great internet connexion.
We enjoyed the tomatoes from the garden and a lot of apples to bake crumbles.
We felt love, kindness and respect from the family, just by staying at their house.
They were helpfull from the day we contacted them and even being out of the country, they answered our questions.
It was very special for us to stay in this beautifull house, it was more than a vacation rental, it was like staying at a friend'shouse.
I'll highly recomend it to anyone, it's the best VRBO that we have ever rented.
Fairfax is the coolest little town of Marin county, away from chain stores and fast foods, it's the heart of organic movement, substainability and mindfull living, plenty of little restaurants of all kind, the best organic ice cream shop, cool caf├ęs and the only independant organic market in the county!!
and I have to mention the farmers market happening every Wednesday afternoon to fill up with plenty of organic produce, breads, eggs, food to go, listen to music and socialize with the locals.
Being a French family, Fairfax is the best town to stay!!
Thanks to the owners, we had a great experience and are hoping to find a house to rent to settle here!!!
