About Denny

Denny met his wife, Kris in 1995. Denis & Kris found this property in 2010.

Denny received a degree in architecture from Lawrence Institute of Technology in Southfield, Michigan. After relocating to Marin County, Denny, a builder, began his own company, Denny has built numerous homes throughout Sausalito, Tiburon, Stinson Beach and the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area. Kris, a native Californian, grew up in the Napa Valley.

Denny purchased this house in 2010

Why Denny chose Richmond

When we found this amazing property, it was 1/2 completed & gave us (Kasten builders) the opportunity to finish building it. It is in a quiet and exclusive area with spectacular 180 degree views and is centrally located and minutes from the freeway.

What makes this house unique

Great neighborhood, friendly people and breathtaking views

View that Can't Be Beat

  • 5 of 5

The view here is absolutely amazing. Day or night, it's stunning. The interior is a wonderful space with everything anyone would need. I'm beyond impressed. This rental is one of the best we've ever stayed at.

I only wish we could have stayed longer. Little tip - you can take the Larkspur ferry just across the San Rafael bridge into San Fran and avoid the traffic and the downtown parking fees.

HIGHLY recommended this property.

Wonderful view and apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was better than the pictures! On our first day we had a small problem and Kris came right away to fix it. It was delightful to wake and see the water and the city and see the lights at night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

A relaxing refuge in the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this wonderful rental late one evening, found the stunning view first, then entered to discover a welcoming space accented with a basket of goodies for our weary traveling souls! .Quite the introduction!

While our days were spent visiting our kids and taking in some touristy venues, we always longed for the moment that we arrived back at this magical space where we could exhale, have a glass of wine on the patio, and relish the time spent here.

The rental is a perfect size for a couple; having said that, we entertained family and friends here as well during our five night stay. The open concept kitchen/dining area easily accommodated a dinner party of 8 adults. Going in and out to the balcony was always a part of every evening. One bathroom, a comfortable bedroom, efficient utility room with a washer/dryer unit, and a kitchen with all the necessities provided us with a stellar experience here.

Last but not least, the owners (Kris and Denny): While we never did actually meet Kris, we chatted with Denny a couple of times. The responsiveness, (but never intrusive) that they demonstrated (to the few minor requests for information or binoculars etc.) is truly the icing on the cake for this property!

We want to thank both of them for creating this memory for us!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay. The condo is comfortable and nicely furnished. It has amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge (when the fog and clouds lift), and the city of San Francisco. It is quiet and peaceful. A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to get there pretty quickly. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

Could not have been nicer. Beautiful home. Great location and an absolutely gorgeous view. Denny and Kris were gracious hosts. I enjoyed my time there and visiting with them. I would definitely return there on my next trip to the Bay Area.

Completely updated, Amazing views, Adorable town❤️

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week at this property and it was absolutely perfect! The best part of the property is, without a doubt, the amazing views! They are stunning! You can see San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge..... so beautiful and relaxing after a full day of sight seeing! It typically took us about 30 minutes to get to San Francisco from the property but we really didn't mind the drive! We had rented a car because we were planning on taking some extended drives. Definitely check out Little Louie's for breakfast and lunch! The French toast is delicious!

Ok, back to the property-I loved having access to a washer/dryer. I still over packed but it was nice to be able to wash my favorite jeans and wear them again. We didn't cook any meals so I can't speak to that but we did have dinner delivered twice and that was also a bonus. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were perfect! I loved all the extra blankets in case we were every chilly because we had the windows and sliding doors open constantly! The TV and cable worked perfectly (which my husband was very happy about😊򒠩 And the sofa was great for lounging. The bathroom was great, too. Roomy shower and great water pressure! All in all, I don't think we will ever stay in a hotel again. This was our first experience with VRBO and we are definitely impressed!

Kris and Denny were very responsive to all of our questions when we were booking and planning our vacation and then always available during our stay to address any questions we had. We appreciated their availability but they were never intrusive! They have compiled a binder which includes a short narrative about themselves, some background about the property and all kinds of things to do in the area. We enjoyed looking through all of the suggestions on our first night there.

Our favorite experiences from this vacation included Muir Woods, Mt. Talampais, Stinson Beach, Sausalito, Berkeley, Point Reyes Lighthouse, Alcatraz, Golden Gate Point, and Sonoma. I would highly recommend this property to anyone planning on visiting the Bay Area. It was a pleasure to return to it every night, relax on the deck and talk about the best part of the day. Thanks, Kris and Denny, for sharing this beautiful getaway with us! We will never forget it!

Thanks for reading our review! We hope you have an amazing vacation and that you love San Francisco as much as we did!
