We absolutely loved staying at Helga's home. Not only was it a great fit for what we were looking for and accurately described, but we also really enjoyed having the opportunity to get to know Helga. We ate a few of our meals together and she shared so much of her story with us. She also provided invaluable knowledge about local hikes on Mount Tam and great insight regarding our upcoming Yosemite visit. As for Helga's home, we had our own private wing with a spacious bedroom (and very hot shower!). Her garden was very peaceful and gorgeous - my wife felt like she was staying in a secluded "treehouse" of sorts. We will definitely stay with Helga next time we visit the Bay Area! One item to note, her place is a little hidden on the road, so keep your eyes peeled. A smaller car would be best as you share a car port (or street parking a short walk away).

Helga is a wonderful host who's home is extremely comfortable. The bedroom/bath was very large, private, and clean. She really went out of her way to make me feel at home. I loved the location as the proximity to downtown Fairifax was great. It was close walking distance to great food. I highly recommend the Hummingbird Cafe for breakfast and Sorella Cafe for dinner. I only stayed 3 nights and went to both of these restaurants twice. Both outstanding.

Beautiful, very cozy home, beautifully landscaped. Great large room with number of windows. Quaint, cozy, quiet neighborhood in the middle of gorgeous Marin County. Close to amazing towns - San Anselmo, Fairfax, San Rafael, Mill Valley, Larkspur. Muir Woods is short drive. Convenient drive to Napa, Sonoma, or up and down the coast and all San Francisco attractions. Larkspur Ferry is 10 min away. Great place to explore the City of San Francisco and all local attractions.

Helga User ProfileHelga is a superhost.

I am originally from Vienna, Austria, but have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1979. I certainly feel very lucky and privileged, and am happy to get to share this beautiful area with you. I love spending time in nature, keeping things relatively simple, and yes, my wi-fi sometimes sucks.
