*Please read our whole listing! This place has a few quirks.*

Our cottage is darling—recently re-done, with gorgeous floors and bright skylights. It sits in our back garden, complete with pear, apple and plum trees. It's a 5 min drive (15 min walk) to downtown San Rafael and Hwy 101, where you can get into San Francisco in under 30 minutes. This is a great home base if you want to experience everything NorCal has to offer—from cycling trails to vineyards to beaches.

Marian's Airbnb was exactly as advertised, private, comfortable and well lit. We enjoyed our time there and would absolutely book another stay with her (and Homer, their dog)!

This is one of the best places on Airbnb that I ever stayed in. It is private, quite and close to shops and restaurants of San Rafael, plus you have a small kitchen. The studio is so tastefully decorated, and Marion provides everything a traveller might need, she really cares to…

Super place to stay as all the other reviews say. Was a lovely studio with everything we needed, including nespresso coffee on tap which the hubby loved! Very bright, airy and modern space. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Heating was good as it was a little chilly in J…

Place was great. Cozy clean and comfortable. They supply espresso coffe, bottled water and beer, which was nice to find in the apartment. The only thing to notice is that the unit has a big skylight, which brings great light in during the day, but if you plan to sleep in late,…

San Rafael is one of the most underrated neighborhoods in Marin. Downtown is super cute, with amazing restaurants and coffee shops. We're just 30 minutes from San Francisco, 30 minutes from wine count…
