Sleepy Hollow House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

House underwent a major renovation during the summer 2010. Mid-century modern Eichler 4-BDR + 1BDR used as office, 2-Baths, 1-story house, with large living room and adjacent family room/kids' play area. Main living quarter is walled with large windows on one side, opening up to a large deck and garden. The house is furnished in a modern style. The island kitchen is open and sits in-between the dining area and living room. Visitors are usually struck by the modern vibe, the open space, and the amount of light. The house offers city, hills, and sky views from the master bedroom and main living area. Spacious deck in front of the house, overlooking the garden, with views of the hills.

The house is located in the Terra Linda neighborhood of San Rafael, CA, 20 minutes from the Golden Gate and San Francisco, in beautiful Marin County, next to fantastic outdoors, and the wine country of Napa and Sonoma.

The house has a residing cat. There is no TV.

About The Owner

French familly of 5 and a cat. We have lived in New York and Boston for a number of years and have settled in beautiful Bay Area two years ago.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose San Rafael

This house is our primary residence. conveniently located in the heart of green Marin County and 20 minutes away from San Francisco's Golden Gate

What makes this house unique

Unlike San Francisco that can get foggy and chilly in Summer, we get a real summer in San Rafael. While the summer can be very hot, and while the house does not have air conditioneer, the house remains cool throughout the summer. Visitors always believe we have A/C, but we are simply lucky to have a well insulated roof that keeps the house cool even in very hot days.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are leaving early tomorrow and I wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed your home. Perfect location, beautiful view and your home was so comfortable. We did our best to put everything back in place. We hope to come back again next year.

Great place and location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house with a very open floor plan. Although the instructions are little intimidating with the care of the wooden table, stove, ipod system, etc., once you get there it is no big deal. Patio is great with morning sunshine. Be aware that cat came in around 6am each morning meowing - although very cute!

Fabulous family friendly modern home

  • 5 of 5

With 5 kids and 5 adults, this house was a perfect place for our family with ages ranging from 9 months to 92 years, to stay on vacation. The layout offers plenty of room for people to do various activities. The kids loved the casual play area. The adults enjoyed conversation in the living room; and the entire family enjoyed meals around the large table. The outdoor space has wonderful grass area with fresh vegetables and fruit, or a large patio for sitting, lounging, BBQing, and eating. It's within walking distance to a grocery store and restaurants. We had a great stay for 10 days and would love to rent again on our next trip to CA.

Utah family spends Christmas in Terra Linda

  • 5 of 5

Great home to rent with all the amenities. We loved the Geneva sound system so much, we didn't even mind the absence of television. We loved seeing their cat once in awhile . . .by the last night the cat bunked up with our youngest daughter :) The owner was responsive and attentive to our inquiries and allowed us to check in early.

A comfortable home for many.

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable house with an excellent kitchen in a nice quiet neighborhood. It's close to conveniences such as banks, stores, theatres, etc. We did have an issue with the garbage disposal, toilet and w ifi accessibility. All were resolved and I no doubt these will not be an issue in the future since they were all repaired quite adequately. The owners were very cooperative and our stay was enjoyable. I would return to this location.

This house is beautifully located with hiking, community pool and grocery stores in walking distance. House is very contemporary and open, bedrooms surround living area so soundproofing is not possible. Owner is friendly and responsive. Neighbors and neighborhood dogs are noisy. View from kitchen/eating area makes up for it all! It's like living in the Marin hills.

House does not have a pool, so it's a safe place for familly with kids who don't know how to swim. There is a large and very nice municipal swimming pool a few minutes away by foot. House is in walking distance from Scotty's Market, a local supermarket that carries fresh and organic food. Minutes away from Whole Foods, Safeway, movie theaters etc. by car.
