A stay with us includes a hearty breakfast before you head out. The San Geronimo Valley is located halfway between US 101 and the Pacific beaches of Marin County. Our home is in a very quiet, semi rural neighborhood. From here it is an easy 35 minute drive into San Francisco and there are other beautiful areas to explore. Since we live on a hillside, if you are unable to climb stairs, ours is not the best accommodation for you. There are about 15 stairs leading to the guest room.

The space

We offer a room and bathroom (shower only, no tub) with a private entrance. The room has a queen bed, microwave and mini fridge. The room is not spacious, and the bathroom has a shower and is a small room, but as the reviews indicate, the accommodations are comfortable. The bathroom has a toilet which includes a small basin above the tank that delivers cold, potable water. It is the only sink in the bathroom. We do not accept pets or offer kitchen privileges.

Guest access

A generous breakfast is included in your stay. Coffee, tea, assortment of breads, granola, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and mixed fruits. There are several cafes, delis, and restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner as we do not offer kitchen access. Check in after 3pm and check out at 11am.

Interaction with guests

We will be home during your stay with us, and we look forward to meeting you. If you arrive when we are out, we will leave instructions for you so you can come in.

Other things to note

There is a parking space for you next to the rock wall at the bottom of our stairs. Please pull forward so your car is on the parking pad and leave room for our neighbor to park next to you.

The gate must be locked at night in order to keep the deer out of the garden.

Very homey place. Be warned however When Katie and John mention how small the bathroom is they are not kidding! And what a cute funny toilet/ sink - you won't see something like that anywhere else. But if you want a private bathroom- you 've got it! The location is very very quiet which is nice. We heard a pack of coyotes howling in the night. Katie and John are fun to talk with. All in all it was a pleasant stay.

Katie and John's place was a perfect jumping off point for our stay in Marin - simple and clean accommodations, with all the amenities you need for a short stay. We didn't get a chance to meet them, but they were responsive and flexible about check-in. Would stay again!

Response from Katie And John:
Hi Heidi, You went above and beyond as far as straightening the room when you left. I'm sorry you had trouble finding our address; that hasn't come up as a problem before. Thank you for staying with us! Katie

While laying in bed looking out the big window I could see the big rolling hills and trees. I felt like I was in a secret place that few people know exists. We enjoyed our stay and the breakfast was an unexpected delight.

Katie and John are very nice hosts. We felt very welcome and it was nice to have a breakfast before leaving and starting our hike near Point Reyes. Perfect for a night during a roadtrip or for exploring the surroundings the next day. Would definitely stay again.
