“Great rental for couples.”
Reviewed September 25, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This property was PERFECT!
Beautiful location high on a ridge; quiet, but with the right mix of natural sounds, like fox, deer, wind and crickets; Comfortable bed and gorgeous bathroom; and friendly, easy going owners.

My girlfriend is a light sleeper, and had no problems relaxing here. While small, the room/apt had a very 'homey' feel to it, and made it easy to use this as a base camp for fun in the wine regions.

Liked best: The atmosphere was what a vacation should feel like
Liked least: The 'driveway'. The road up to the house from town is one lane, and fairly intimidating for first timers.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed September 17, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is an amazing place to stay. The guest house is beautiful, clean and spacious. The view is amazing. And the property is beautifully landscaped. The homeowners Jack and Ann are very kind and conscientious. We were in town for our daughter's USCG A School graduation. We were very busy with family time. It was nice to wake up to the piece and quiet and the beautiful views. We look forward to returning just to stay for a while and relax.

“Beautiful.”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Lovely space, beautiful setting, and easy to get to San Fran. Charming hosts make this place a bit like a B & B (although you're on your own for breakfast). Excellent place to relax.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I booked the studio for my parents' stay for 10 nights. The owners, Jack & Ann, responded right away to my inquiry, showed me the place the same day and I gave them a deposit right away. The studio is large, clean with beautiful views of Novato. They were eager to make my parents stay comfortable, even asked if they should cover the skylight since it was full moon! The studio is built next to their house with private entrance and it really feels like home with enough privacy. My parents loved their stay and can't wait to return! Thank you Jack & Ann for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your amazing home with us.

“Peaceful and Relaxing”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Perched high on a hilltop, this property looks out over the hills and valleys and receives wonderfully cool breezes in the evening. With windows that take advantage of the view, the apartment is situated such that there is no concern for privacy with all the blinds open. At night you can hear the far away sounds of the fog horns in the bay. Inside, the apartment is immaculate and comfortable. Jack and Ann are fabulous hosts--very helpful and friendly. Once you get used to the twisting, winding road to get to the property, everything is perfect. Would highly recommend staying here. Thanks, Jack and Ann for a wonderful visit.
