My family had a great stay and enjoyed the very comfortable house and wonderful location. Hard to beat the view out the front door each morning.

This is a terrific home to stay in. Nice sized rooms; ample space to relax both indoors and outdoors. Furnishings are in good shape and comfortable. Beautiful view of mountain from front yard; backyard is beautiful and includes a waterfall/pond. Very relaxing stay. Kitchen well equipped for cooking and there are plenty of dishes & silverware. Location is in a quiet residential neighborhood; yet within 5 minutes you can drive to a shopping center with high end grocery store, coffee shop, other places to eat. Within 10 to 15 minutes you can be in downtown Larkspur where there are multiple restaurants and a large grocery store.

Mindful that I may prejudice other airbnb hosts from welcoming my wife and I into their homes, I feel obligated to be honest about our experience. We lived in Michael's home for two weeks and, as advertised, we found it to be conveniently located and in a handsome setting. And our host was readily available on the phone. However, there are some cons that prospective renters should consider. First of all, the home is very tired and neglected, e.g., dishwasher had drainage issues, outdoor fountain was on its last legs, much of the outdoor lighting needed repair, window flower boxes were falling apart, vines had overgrown the children's playhouse, and water only trickled out of the faucet in the Master Bath sink due to a build up of grit. If you are a clean freak you should shy away from this listing, e.g., dishes required re-washing, ants and other bugs were present, and kitchen cabinet knobs were sticky to the touch. The house is chock full of the owner's belongings leaving insufficient room for others on an extended stay. While not in Michael's control, there was incessant construction going on in the neighborhood and the sounds of banging and drilling were heard throughout the day, even on weekends. Finally, the photos are mostly accurate but not entirely. There is no outdoor table that seats six as shown and none of the hammocks or outdoor umbrellas were set up. They were lying in the garage filthy and full of webs. In short, despite Michael's engaging manner, this 60 year old home is in desperate need of some TLC.

Response from Michael:
I inspected the house the day after they left and found no trace of ants, the dishwasher was working and the pond & waterfall were working once filled up! Also, the master bathroom sink worked fine once I removed the strainers! The outdoor furniture covers & the hammocks had not been put out because of the rain--they are all now out!

Michaels place was perfect for our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids). Living space is spacious and the outdoors is fantastic and well taken care of. Kitchen has all you need. Michael was always available to answer questions.

Great stay at Michaels place! Gorgeous views of Mount Tam, excellent accommodations for a family of five. Very private. Easy access to the 101 off Sir Francis Drake Blvd making it easy to get around the Bay Area. Would love to stay here again next time we are in the Bay Area.
