Enjoy the natural beauty of West Marin! Our home is surrounded by greenery, wildlife and a seasonal creek. Many trails with amazing views just outside the gate. Excellent base for exploring or simply as a peaceful retreat.

The space

Our home is a little country-funky, yet has all the modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable as can be. There is a wood-burning stove and ceiling fan in the open floor plan living room, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, and has a toaster over (no microwave), dishwasher, propane stove/oven and full-sized refrigerator/freezer. Although we are vegetarian and prefer the cooking done in the kitchen to be so, please feel free to cook as you like on the outdoor grill (and of course store what you need in the fridge). We have hi-speed internet, but no cable or TV. The bright bathroom has both a shower and tub. Though our home has 4 bedrooms plus a loft in total, our septic doesn't allow for large groups and we prefer to be on the property when we have Airbnb guests. This open loft bedroom is on the upper floor, next to one other non-Airbnb bedroom. Additional privacy is available by drawing the heavy curtains. Please note that there is a sturdy ladder/stairs to the loft, and though it has a safety railing, it may not be the best choice for unsteady little ones.

Guest access

Guests have use of the entire upper floor and extra large front yard, with outdoor seating and dining, grill and garden. The laundry is located downstairs and also available to you. You may store bikes/gear in 1/2 of the garage. Parking is in the space to the left of the garage. Please do not use back deck, as it is private.

Interaction with guests

The 3 of us (one adult and two relatively quiet 12-year-olds) will likely be here and are happy to be as social or private as suits you! We have a lovely roommate that has a private entrance downstairs and rarely comes up to use the kitchen.

Other things to note

We ask that guests respect a 10pm quiet time. We do have a super-friendly French Bulldog, but he sleeps with us and typically isn't ever home alone. There are also 8 chickens (no roosters) and neighbor's two cats on the property, and we often kitty-sit an indoor cat, so even though we love animals, unfortunately can't allow pets. Cell reception can be spotty up here. We have an ATT microcell, should they be your carrier... or Wifi calling works. There is a landline as well. We are on a septic system, so nothing but TP flushed please.

My cousin and I absolutely loved staying with Christina. She was such a gracious host-- great communication and went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible during an unusual heat wave in Northern California. I would highly recommend staying with her!

This is what AirBnB is all about. I wanted to get away after a week of work in Mountain View and went with my gut - Christina has described her space exactly as you wish - but it's so much more. A perfect get away. So pleased I found it!

Christina's place is lovely. She's so welcoming into her family. I was staying up in Woodacre for a 3-day retreat at Spirit Rock and this was the perfect place to come home to between the sessions.

I thought a lot about what I could say and I think it's best to start of with: WOW ! Christina is such a lovely host ! I immediately felt like I was home when I walked through the door. Beautiful mantras playing in the living room made me feel so at peace after hiking in the dark from Fair Fax to Woodacre. Christina had left me a protein bar, eggs from the chickens in the garden and some other goodies which were really really after a long hike. Christina and her lovely children are such a peaceful and loving family ! Cooking together in the kitchen was a lot of fun ! Their dog was really peaceful, relaxed and nice to be around. He loves to be patted and scratched ^^ It was hard for me to leave such a beautiful place. The room is super cosy and the bed so comfortable. The shower is great and there garden just so alive and beautiful! The chickens add a really nice touch. I would love to visit them again. Best place so far I've stayed in on my journeys ! Thank you Christina !

We live among the redwoods of West Marin with our French Bulldog and 8 chickens. We love music, travel, food, camping/the outdoors and spending time with friends and family.
