Top Notch Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 fantastic weeks here in Marin County. We were very fortunate to rent our little secret hideaway in San Rafael. The apartment is cozy and has all the creature comforts of home. The best part is the Hot Tub and Sauna in a private area just outside the apartment. There is also a nice Bar-B-Que in the shaded area where the hot tub and sauna are. The landlord was quite helpful with whatever we needed and he has much local knowledge for spots to visit and hike to. We hope to return again next year

Very private and great location

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient location, close to freeway, big shopping malls, and only a short drive to great hikes. The studio has everything you need, and a little patio outside. You have your total privacy, no need to walk thru someone's property, the place is all yours. Quiet neighborhood, no thru traffic. The studio is kept very clean and the owner is always ready to help. I have been staying at this studio for a few days at a time for many years now, arriving from Switzerland, on my way North and I will stay there again. Perfect setting for my dog too.

Bay Area, CA

Secluded, charming place for awesome price

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for Memorial Day weekend with my parents. We visited San Francisco, Calistoga, and Marin County; thus, this was a very central location. This place is a 2 min drive from restaurants, stores, and Safeway (walkable distance). Oh...and the Marin County Farmer's Market close by on Sunday was great! The neighborhood is very quiet. It was amazing how charming this place is although it is an in-law unit attached to the owner's house. With that said, it is very, very private. An affordable place with a jacuzzi, sauna, and grill is hard to find. I will definitely be staying here again!
