About the property

900 square feet, one bedroom with deck & sauna

An attractive setting with a view of San Francisco Bay and beyond, this wonderfully newly refurnished and comfortable one bedroom apartment is located in Larkspur. It is just 10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge by car, or 30 minutes to downtown San Francisco by ferry. In addition, Napa Valley is 45 minutes north while Stinson beach is only a 20 minutes west.

This sunny unit is quiet and private with its own entrance. It includes a large deck, accessible from both the bedroom and the living room where you can relax and enjoy the view. This lovely retreat is within a short distance to numerous conveniences: shopping centers, Movie Theater, gym, and restaurants.

Inside, the property has nice furnishings, from 'carrera' marble counter tops, a full kitchen, to a new bathroom with heated flooring and a sauna. The apartment can sleep four people and is perfect for those wishing to relax and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking or visiting San Francisco and Wine country.

Wonderful location, wonderful hosts, wonderful view, wonderful value

  • 5 of 5

When I return to the area, I can't imagine staying anyplace else.

This is a fabulous lower level (with deck) of a very nice house you are renting.

We were a bit surprised over the lack of window curtains in the non bedroom area - but hardly a negative in such a nice place.

Dedicated washer and dryer. There are stairs going down to the area but those weren't a concern for us.

Next time I'm bringing my mom so she can enjoy with us.

We had no surprises, no issues, and would stay and recommend (well, perhaps not to the point where it becomes so popular that we can't ever rent it again) ;)

Love it and love the owners too.

Absolutely wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and had a wonderful time. REALLY enjoyed soaking up the view everyday of the bay! This place was an oasis to come back to everyday after sight seeing. Easy access to the freeway to go to San Fran or North to Sonoma or Napa! I cannot wait to come back, the owners were very friendly and helpful with any questions we asked. The vacation rental was beautifully decorated and well appointed with everything you could need during your stay. We were very comfortable and will hopefully be able to return again soon to this great place to stay by the bay!!!

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for about a week and it is an amazing place. The unit itself is bright, clean, updated, very spacious and comfortable. The view is spectacular, taking in the north bay, Tiburon peninsula and east bay with a lengthy deck to enjoy it from. Lionel and his wife (and their beautiful dog Zarra) were very friendly and welcoming. The location high up on a hill has very close access to Hwy. 101, Larkspur Ferry and Sir Francis Drake Blvd. the main conduit to West Marin. Highly recommended.

We stayed in this apartment for a week and enjoyed the experience tremendously. The apartment is clean, comfortable, the views are hypnotizing, and our communication with the owners was very pleasant.

Great Place to Stay in Marin

  • 5 of 5

This Larkspur unit is a perfect place to stay if you want to get away, travel the area or just visiting someone. My husband and I rented it for a week to visit our son in Marin over thanksgiving. The view is beautiful! We were so relaxed and enjoyed our stay! The unit has a king bed and a pull out sofa - both very comfortable. a newly remodeled bathroom with a sauna. I was even able to cook a full thanksgiving dinner for the three of us! I highly recommend it. My husband and I plan to book it again on our next trip to Marin.
