I studied Neuroscience and Psychology at UC Berkeley and went on to found Merlock L.L.C I've traveled extensively to England, Germany, France, Italy, India, Thailand, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, Hawaii, Ukraine, and Israel. Merlock L.L.C. is a web hosting and I.T. consulting business that builds customized software for businesses to enhance productivity. We are also innovators of green energy equipment such as devices that recycle used cooking oil into cost effective vehicle fuel. My dream is to use the profits of our labor to start a non-profit company that will help disadvantaged people around the world, afford medical care. Specifically a program that will send doctors from the US to the third world, to train mid-level healthcare workers to effectively treat the sick. I believe that everyone should have equal access to healthcare, regardless of socioeconomic status. While in college I owned a company that produced raves and concerts near San Francisco. While I don't produce raves anymore, I still run f8gear on the side, which sells music. I joke around a lot and act like a kid when I'm around cute little pets. I love plants and growing plants. If I get an avocado (yum!) I plant the seed. One indicator of successful people is their ability to choose a greater reward that takes longer to achieve, versus an inferior reward that takes less time. I typically wait the longer period for the greater reward. Favorite Quotes: 'Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.' Horace Mann, address at Antioch College, 1859 US educator (1796 - 1859) 'The Era of Procrastination, of Half-Measures, of Soothing and Baffling Expedients, of Delays, is coming to its Close. In its Place We are Entering a Period of Consequences.'-Sir Winston Churchill, November 12, 1936

This property has been well maintained and has some beautiful views. Highly recommended due to the proximity to downtown SF and the great amenities around the area.
The house, the view and the experience were all extraordinary.
We had a fantastic time and really appreciated your thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Thank you again for making your beautiful home available to us this weekend - there is no better vantage point from which to see and enjoy the Bay Area
Thanks so much for keeping the place in such perfect condition. You and your family were awesome!
This house is a trip. We booked it last minute and the owner was easy to coordinate with. There are so many 80s fab features! The patio is great, the hot tub was great, the views are great, and the heated pool was really warm. The office was my personal favorite. Our kids had a great time. The furniture was dated and stained and the beds were bumpy and uncomfortable but who goes on vacation to find a comfortable bed?
Much of the art in the home is original and interesting. There was a framed reproduction leaning over the foyer table. When we opened the front door and a gust of wind game in, the frame went flying off the table and crashed to the ground. The first time it happened, we thought what a fluke?! But it happened a second time so we moved the art to a corner. When I contacted the owner, Jeff, he said it had never happened before. That defies logic. Luckily, we purchased the insurance so Jeff said he would make a claim against that. After we left, Angelo contacted us and asked us to pay for the cost of cleaning the furniture. We've stayed in dozens of vacation rentals. We always clean up before we leave and treat the home as we would treat our own. We've never had anyone ask for money for anything before. It left a sour taste in our mouths. We won't return, but it's not because of the house. It was crazy and 80s and delightful.
We had a wonderful stay at this property. The views are unbelievable and Jeff was very helpful. Hope to return someday.
Spring Break Perfection
PERFECT is the only word that describes our 10-day stay at this beautiful property. Our family decided to spend Spring Break in the San Francisco area, choosing to stay in Marin County. This property suited all our needs, providing luxurious accommodations, unbelievable views from every window, a stunning outdoor patio, pool, and kitchen area and a convenient jumping off point for all our activities. We took advantage of some excellent restaurants in Tiburon and Sausalito, visited Muir Woods, Napa Valley and several sites in San Francisco, all with minimum time and effort.
The house is beautifully appointed, yet comfortable for old-agers to teenagers. Our hosts, Angelo and Jeff, thoughtfully provided a nice array of fruit and snacks - a welcome surprise after a long cross-country flight. We are a group who enjoy cooking so we took full advantage of the commercial range and the outdoor grill, managing to create a superb Easter dinner using ideas we gleaned from some of our restaurant meals.
We enjoyed the pool and made s'mores over the fire pit while marveling at the beauty of the Bay and the San Francisco skyline. Our teenager has already begged for a return trip to "this house" next year.
Without hesitation I would recommend this house during your next visit to San Francisco.
We rented this beautiful house for ten days over the Thanksgiving holiday. The gracious and elegant dining room was the perfect setting for my family's Thanksgiving dinner. Several other dinners were enjoyed by friends and family on the outside deck warmed by the outside heaters. The views are truly spectacular and the close proximity to so many interesting venues, Napa and Sonoma, San Francisco by ferry, Point Reyes, and more....made this a most memorable trip.
Other Activities: Rock Climbing, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Kayaking, Parasailing, Racquetball, Hot Air Ballooning, Miniature golf
