Classic California home with 4 bedrooms, 2 family rooms and a lovely pool. Perfect sunny spot close to many hiking trails, half hour from San Francisco, the wine country,and Stinson Beach. Lots of character, an organic garden, in the heart of Marin.

The space

My house is a sweet, comfy mid-century modern home with an atrium when you walk in, and the house wraps around a pool. Outside dining is the way to go if you love dinner en plain air. The kitchen has been remodeled with all new appliances (not photographed yet), living room and family rooms are airy, and queen beds with new mattresses. It can fit up to 8 people.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the pool, bbq, kitchen, tv, wifi, and anything else I forgot.

Interaction with guests

I am open to renting the house, or rooms. I can be here and be host, guide, breakfast cook. I love people, and enjoy helping them get the most out of their visit to the Bay Area. If I'm here, my sweet friendly dog stays by my side. He's my greatest asset! My cat
stays around the house but lives in and out of doors.

Other things to note

I live in a quiet neighborhood so I do not allow parties at my house.

Catherine's home was both beautiful and functional and our group of 8 had a great time staying there over a long weekend. She was very easy to communicate with and responded quickly and promptly to all questions. The pictures are slightly outdated on the airbnb listing and the home is actually more updated than it appears. The kitchen is completely remodeled and there are 4 full queen beds. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the pool is perfect for a hot summer day. I would definitely stay at Catherine's home again in the future!

Great house! Really big and a lot of big rooms and really comfortable beds! The pool area was great and we had BBQ for dinner. Really great store nearby. Took about 20min to San Francisco. Everything was great and Cathrine was awesome host

Catherine's place was lovely. Perfect. The house was clean, prodigiously sized, and beautifully decorated. My friends fell in love with the house and we hated to leave. We briefly considered invoking squatter's rights, so that none of us would have to leave, but after envisioning the lengthy legal battle we thought better of it. The pool was a wonderful refuge from the scorching heat, and Catherine's cat, Sir Hisstopher, was a welcome addition. I'd recommend, without hesitation, that anyone interested in getting away from the city, or spending some leisure time lounging by the pool, to stay at Catherine's home. Her communication was pleasant and clear and staying there was a breeze.

The house met our needs - we were attending a High School Graduation in San Rafael - so house was well located. The kitchen was great - just newly redone. Of course we loved Kitty - he was everyone's friend. The beds were comfortable and everyone had plenty of room. GREAT TRIP !!!

Catherine made us feel so comfortable in her home, which was beautiful, my family absolutely loved staying there during their short visit to the US. The place has a lived-in and happy vibe which we very much appreciated. We really enjoyed the cat too.

Tidy and well appointed eco-conscious home with nice hangout spaces. Catherine was a warm and kind host. The cat, Mr Histerford, is friendly and well behaved. We will miss him.
