About Floyd Fulmer

Hello and Welcome! I'm native of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area 1979. I'm semi-retired from the Commercial Jet Finance and Leasing industry, which occupation presented the opportunity of extensive world travel. I enjoy Golf, Music, Hiking, Travel and hanging out with my Family and Friends

Why Floyd Fulmer chose The Bay Area

It's a great location, peaceful and comfortable and possibly the best value in Marin County!

What makes this apartment unique

All you need is a suitcase with change of clothes and a toothbrush to quickly settle in comfortably to your Holiday Home. Easy access to the Freeway for departures to and from the Airports, San Francisco, the Ocean and Napa wineries, parking in the driveway, high speed internet, cable TV, laundry and an ever so gracious and humble Host make this peaceful, quiet cul-de-sac a great place to hang out for awhile!

West Coast Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Floyd's rental property for the extended Memorial Day holiday and it was a wonderful experience. So very close to Napa, Sonoma and San Francisco! The best of both worlds (or many for that matter). The property is maintained very well, and I enjoyed the gorgeous views from the private deck. The bed was extremely comfortable, as well as the cozy leather recliners that were heaven sent after a long day of wine tasting and people watching. The personal touches of fresh towels, shampoo and my favorite Dove soap in the shower made me smile. Attention to details are extremely important and I would truly return to this cozy rental again when I visit California. One slight note is that the rental does not have air conditioning; however, I was provided a fan and it was perfect in the evenings. Safe neighborhood and plenty to keep you entertained. 5 stars.

Feels Like Home Now!

  • 5 of 5

Just had our third stay here to visit our family in Novato - now we call it our California home and our grandchildren love to come to Grandma and Grampa's for after school visits. Very pleasant with plenty of room and amenities to make us comfortable plus a gorgeous view from the huge deck. We love it and will be back.

Marin getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice rental unit with beautiful views and very quiet. It was well furnished with a very comfortable bed and a spacious bathroom. The neighborhood was great for walking with a good grocery store nearby. What more could you want than to be close to Trader Joes, Whole Foods and Costco. It was so easy to get to Sonoma County, Napa County and all parts of Marin. Just right for 2 adults.

California Dreamin'

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment attached to a private residence, located in an upscale subdivision-- views to make you drool. Sit outside in the afternoons and watch the birds and shadows lengthen on the mountains. CLOSE to wineries (Napa and Sonoma) and Pacific coast (eg. Bodega Bay less than 1 hour drive!) Bed was so comfortable it was hard getting up in the mornings. Thank you Floyd. Wonderful experience!!!

Bay area getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with everything you could possibly need for a stay away from home! Bed was comfortable, bathroom was newly remodeled (or at least seemed like it was!), lots of towels and extra blankets, tv and internet worked, kitchen was fully stocked, grill included, and the private enterence with a parking spot was a nice touch. It had everything we could've asked for. We will definitely give Floyd a call for any future stays in Novato!

It's All Good, Really!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, my husband and I stayed in this apartment for the whole month of June and loved every day of it. We loved the bright spacious rooms, the comfy TV-viewing chairs, the soft bed, the big walk-in closet, and most of all the large deck with a wonderful view of the gorgeous California hills nearby (where we enjoyed hiking). Host Floyd couldn't have been more helpful, responsive, kind, and generous. We will be back, to enjoy again this apartment and all the amenities of Novato.
