My husband and I had an amazing stay at Francis and Anne's place. Francis and Anne are very kind, generous, and accommodating hosts. Everything about their room was amazing. The room is located in the home, but is basically separate from the house and its own little enclave. There was a beautiful balcony with an incredible view, a huge walk in closet, and a huge bathroom all part of the room. This made the stay very private and wonderful! Francis and Anne respected our privacy greatly, and we had easy access in and out of the home. The cleanliness of the room and whole home was amazing. The towels, floors, bathroom, bed, everything was very neat and tidy! Anne and Francis were kind enough to fix our bed properly and take out garbage when we were away even though our stay was short. They provided plenty of fresh towels and tissues and even robes in the room. They also stocked the fridge with water and juices, fruit, and pantry items such as granola and crackers and scones. My favorite part of the room was the balcony view, it was wonderful to sit in the night and watch the moon and stars, and to enjoy the cool mornings and chirping birds as well. The bathroom was incredible as well. The bathtub was nothing like I've seen before. It had two shower heads on opposing sides of the walls and a huge bathtub! It was amazing. The bathroom was also very tidy and clean. They also had extra shampoo and body wash available to use. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were fresh and clean. I really have no complaints about this place because our stay was so lovely, even though it was so short. I wish we could have stayed longer! We were seeing friends in Sonoma, and the drive was so easy from their place as well, it took about 35 mins total. Thank you so much Francis and Anne!!

Stay at Francis's was a bit like staying at a 5-star hotel at 1/4 the price. The room was huge, well furnished, comfortable, HUGE walk-in closet with refrigerator, freezer and microwave. I can't even imagine better accommodations at any price. Furthermore Francis and his wife were impeccably polite and helpful, made my bed every day, brought in cleaners to deep clean and tidy up every so often.

Just as the pictures show, this room has a beautiful view and is quiet and peaceful and clean and comfortable. Francis and Anne are kind and generous hosts and could be the poster couple for all that is great about Airbnb! Novato is a perfect jumping off point for exploring Northern Marine County with it's beautiful rolling hills and hiking trails.

Fabulous view, wonderful amenities in the fridge along with fresh fruit in the room and a fabulous bathroom in the Master Suite. We would stay with Francis and Anne again. The only thing we'd like would be a Queen rather than a double bed (it was very comfy) and a TV as we're creatures of habit and like our TV entertainment.

Thank you, Fran and Anne! Y'all were wonderful. I would highly recommend this place. Thanks for your advice on Nicasio Reservoir! And on the secret location of the best photo op for the Golden Gate bridge. My selfie from this morning is my new (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) profile pic. I'll send you a link to the pics and video I captured with your recommendations once i edit them a bit. Big hug to you both, Greyson
