A cozy 3 room 1 bath apartment which is part of a large house shared with one other tenant. The apartment has a private entrance, and does not share any rooms with the other tenant. There is free street parking, and is centrally located between San Francisco, the Pacific coastline, and Wine Country. The apartment is situated in a quiet wooded neighbourhood at the base of a large foothill. If you are looking for no frills, rustic, peaceful, warm and cozy place to stay, this is it.
What's unique about this space is its location. Deer and wild turkeys roam the neighbourhood yet you are within easy walking distance of downtown San Rafael. There is a beautiful eastern view from the kitchen/dining room of a mountain range, with lots of birds and wildlife activity right outside the window. As you can see from the pictures there is nothing fancy about the apartment. It has a comfortable queen bed, lots of extra blankets and pillows, a shabby chic couch, and full kitchen access. It is within walking distance of a wide choice of restaurants, wine bars, brew pubs, grocery stores, and downtown San Rafael. It is also close to the bus and train depots and a 10 minute drive to Larkspur Ferry Terminal where you can catch a ferry to San Francisco.
Disponible para huéspedes
In addition to full access of the apartment, there is Apple TV with Netflix, HBO Now, Starz, and Showtime (among other options) available on my 52" plasma TV with Bose sound system. There is a Bose sound dock in the kitchen, full kitchen ammenities, front porch area (not shared), and reserved closet and dresser space. There is a shared back yard if you care to sit quietly in the sun.
Atención a los huéspedes
I or my co-host Emily will be here to greet you when you arrive. We will show you around the apartment and answer any questions you might have. We will be available via cell phone should anything come up. We will need daily access to the apartment for 15 minutes to tend to Sassy (my cat) in order to feed her and tend to the litter box
Otros aspectos destacables
As I've mentioned, this is a shared house. My upstairs neighbours are quiet and respectful but you will hear them walking and talking on occasion. I also live close to an elementary school so you will hear outdoor recreational activities during the school year on weekdays and occasionally on weekends.
There is a small staircase (6 steps) between the kitchen/bathroom and the bedroom/TV room.
There are also 3 brick steps to access my front door.
Last but not least, I have an indoor cat. She will be your host while you are staying at the apartment. She is a social cat who likes interaction. Please be aware of her demeanour as you would with all cats. If you or your guest are allergic to cats, please do not book this apartment. The bedroom door can be closed for your privacy and for sleeping in. Sassy is not an outside cat so please be careful when you prop open doors or notice her moving towards the door.
If you are in need of an extra bed, I do have a very comfortable tent cot that will fit one person.
Please treat my home like it's yours.
No smoking anything in the apartment. Outside is fine but away from the house. .
Quiet time after 10PM
My cat is an indoor cat. Please be mindful when propping open doors.
I share a large house with another adult family. Our two households are completely separated but noise does carry . Please be respectful of the noise level when you are inside. I would be extremely grateful.
I'm a low key, respectful person who likes quiet space. That's not to say I don't enjoy interacting with the hosts and guests alike. It has been one of the unexpected joys of my experience with AirBnb. If I'm your host, I want your stay to be fantastic. I love where I live and I am very excited to share it with you. I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 25 years and would love to share my knowledge of this beautiful slice of the US.
If I'm a Guest: I'm good with animals and enjoy their company. Well, except loud parrots lol. I'm a morning person so I am usually out of the house by 9 or 10. I am a guest in your house and I will comport myself as such.
