We, the Kaplan family, are looking for a nice, responsible family to rent our home for select dates! We have a roomy, kid friendly home, located in a water community with large backyard including garden, swings, trampoline, chicken coop, pool, dock, 2 man kayak, paddle board and sandy beach on Novato creek with tikki torches! We are located in Novato California, ½ hour from beautiful San Francisco, the coast, Muir woods, and the Napa Valley! The house has four bedrooms (2 ½ bathrooms) which include 2 single beds, 1 double and 2 queen beds…there are three couches in the house and an elevated single inflatable bed that could be used for a larger group. Watch free Netflix movies on the home theater system or sing songs around our 1923 Ludwig baby grand piano. Or simply enjoy just relaxing and reflecting in our Christian home. We are definitely set up for people with kids…tons of toys, books, scooters, and bikes! We have great neighbors and could connect your family with locals to give you a non-touristy experience.
Key reasons why you would want to rent our home this summer~
· A convenient homey experience while on vacation!
· Less expensive.
· Lots of outdoor activities in the backyard...child’s zip line, chickens, organic flower garden, pool, basketball hoop, trampoline, beach, dock, paddle board, kayak, bikes and scooters!
· Close to San Francisco and many other beautiful places!
From SFO there is the Marin Airporter that leaves every 1/2 hour that can take you within 5 minutes to the house.
Hope to have you in our lovely home this summer….Sincerely, Stacey and Brian Kaplan

We spent 5 nights over Thanksgiving with extended family at this lovely house. The house was great for us - lovely back yard, trampoline, kayak, cozy & welcoming interior. We were there in the winter and spent a fair amount of time outside, but I can imagine it's wonderful during the summer with the swimming pool and warm weather! Brian and Stacey were very welcoming and easy to communicate with. There was a small issue with the stove and they were easy to reach and helpful. The house is well appointed and we found everything we needed. We'd love to come back, thanks again!
The house is well located for a multi-family trip, with variety of interests for all ages: it's close to a variety of points of interests, we visited Traintown. The property backs on the water, there is a kayak and a rowboat. The trampoline and the swimming pool were big hits. The kitchen is well equipped.
Bryan is easy to deal with, he answered all of our questions about the house. House provides plenty of space and has a great selection of games especially helpful if visiting with small children. Good parking available. the area feels very safe and welcoming.
I would highly recommend this house for a family with kids (different ages, including teens) or/and multi-family trips. We would rent again, thanks.
Great home that splits the difference between Napa and SF that would recommend to anybody. Nice quite neighborhood
Very comfortable spacious house. Had all the amenities needed to make meals. Enjoyed the beautiful views and jogging paths close to home. The house was in a perfect location: 30" from downtown San Francisco. This is the Owners home, but they had plenty of space for our things. Brian and Stacey were very accommodating. Would definitely recommend:)
We had a wonderful, no hassle vacation in this lovely home. The owners were kind enough to put together a book telling us what we needed to know about the house. They checked in on us when we checked into the house. The house itself is wonderful spacious and comfortable and the backyard is fantastic for kids with swing pool playset and zip line and great for adults as well being right off the grasslands and the canal.
My brother's family and my family (4 adults and 3 teenagers) shared the Kaplan home for 10 days and it provided us with many memorable moments. We enjoyed all the home had to offer, the pool, ping pong table, mini pool table, kayak, little beach with fire pit and most of all the view. What a great view over Sonoma Valley. Just priceless.
We cooked many meals in the well appointed kitchen and enjoyed eating both inside and outside. Although we were there during some very hot days (90ties), the home cooled off in the evening and the nights were pleasant.
The home is so conveniently located. We visited San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon (just gorgeous-highly recommend a visit to future guests), Sonoma, Napa, Healdsburg, and Muir Woods National Park. We also enjoyed exploring nearby Novato and can recommend Marvin's restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Yummy food and great service! Safeway is 5 minutes away and Costo about 10 minutes.
I deducted a star because we were not able to use the pool for two days. However, the owner was very responsive and resolved the issue as soon as possible. If not for this glitch our vacation was definitely a 5-star experience and we highly recommend it to all who wish to visit San Francisco and the wine country.
Thank you Brian and Stacey for sharing your home with us.
