This magical place is a paradise. Vicki is a splendid and generous host who has created a retreat that is heavenly. We slept under the moon on the terrace, watched the hummingbirds drink from the pools edge and watched the sunset glow over the nature reserve at our feet. Truly an exceptional experience.

The pictures from Vicki's place don't do it justice, it was a gorgeous spot and she has done an amazing job making it feel like a resort. Our only complaint was that we thought by reading the description we would have the whole place to ourselves and that was not the case and maybe our mistake for not verifying that, but the host will be there the whole time. She was never a hinderance to our stay and certainly gave us our privacy but I wish we had known that before we booked. She was a great host and did respond quickly to accommodate us with whatever we needed when something came up.

If you are traveling to Fairfax, or the San Rafael area, and want to have an amazingly relaxing weekend, I honestly can't believe that there would be a better spot to stay, than at Vicki's property. The pictures do not do it justice. The infinity pool overlooks the valley, and the views from every location on the deck, including the hot tub, are extremely picturesque. I stayed here for a friend's wedding, and it was absolutely perfect. The house/room (bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom, and the awesome deck) has anything/everything you might need, and Vicki was a fantastic hostess. I couldn't recommend staying here more.

Vicki's Mountain View Retreat was our first Airbnb experience and it was wonderful. The space is just as lovely as it looks in photos. It is super clean and beautiful with a lot of attention to small details like beautiful linens, a well-appointed kitchen and pretty flowers inside and out. The space is private and relaxing with comfortable seating in and out. The deck is a lovely place to sip coffee and look out at Moint Tamalpais. Our stay was relaxing and restorative and Vicki was a wonderful hostess.

We had a wonderful time staying at Vicki's retreat. It was absolutely beautiful and very romantic. Vicki was also very accommodating with our check-in and check-out which we really appreciated. I very much recommend this place to anyone!

If you are considering this place, book it now! You won't regret it. It's even more magical in person! My girlfriend and I were sad to leave. We were greeted by Vicki and the cutest puppy, scooter at the gate. She was very nice, thorough and took time to show us around making sure we had no questions. The place itself was a great size and perfect for what we needed. It was very clean and tastefully decorated. The views were breathtaking! Aside from the views, the infinity pool was what sold us on this place. The pool and hot tub were amazing and relaxing. Layout, cool down and swim during the day and warm up in hot tub at night underneath the stars. This place was designed to be a perfect romantic getaway for a couple. The neighborhood was secluded and cute. The small town Main Street was a 4-5 min Uber drive down the hills. We had diner at a cute sushi place that was lively and had great food. We made friends with the couple sitting next to us and everyone and we talked to were super nice/sweet. All in all, everything exceeded our expectations and it was our favorite Airbnb experience. I would've stayed much longer if the days were available. Next time we are in California, I will make a pitstop in Fairfax specifically for this mountain view retreat! Thanks again for a everything and a lovely time!!!

My BF and I had an amazing stay at Vicki's beautiful oasis. The pictures truly do not do it justice. Vicki has thought of everything you might need and has done a spectacular job of keeping the guest area (downstairs and pool/ hot tub) completely private for guests to enjoy. Her little dog Scooter is also adorable and really enjoys giving guests their initial tour of the lavish quarters. We would highly recommend Vicki's place and now know it will be very difficult to top such an incredible experience!
