Perks for the Parents

This spacious Marin County home with a pool sleeps up to 8 and is perfect for a larger family or an extended family vacationing together. Tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street a stone’s throw from San Francisco, San Jose, and Napa Valley wine country, the home is within walking distance of charming downtown San Anselmo and is close to shopping, restaurants, playgrounds, and ocean beaches.

Why Kids Love it

The nearly half-acre yard is ideal for active outdoor play, and there is a large fenced-in pool, a hammock, a wooden playhouse, and plenty of seating for outdoor entertaining around the fire pit. Kids can eat the freshest fruit possible, picked from the trees in the yard in season. It is an easy walk to shops, restaurants and a racquet club in downtown San Anselmo, and there are ocean beaches and many beautiful public parks with playgrounds a short drive away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. The property is in a safe residential area on a quiet, tree-lined street, close to local grocery stores Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. The pool is fenced in. There is parking available in the residence’s 2 car garage and driveway (and car rental is recommended). Note that a crib, changing table, and high chair are not provided and the house is not baby proofed; you can however rent items from a baby equipment agency to make a stay work with young children. This residence does not allow pets.

About the Location

The property is within walking distance of downtown San Anselmo and a 10-minute walk to the Marin Transit bus station (68 Eastbound) on Red Hill Avenue and Sequoia Drive. The nearby San Rafael Transit Center serves the Marin Transit, the Golden Gate Transit, and airport shuttles. Secluded and private yet close to the action, San Francisco, San Jose, and Napa Valley wine country attractions are all nearby. It is approximately 45 minutes from both San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International Airport by car or taxi.

Style Notes

Modern California. This beautiful home is made for indoor-outdoor living, with luxurious spaces inside and out for eating, cooking and relaxing in. The back yard is a stand out feature, with plenty of space for kids to play and adults to relax. We love the music-inspired design touches, including wall-mounted guitars and retro-style band poster displays,

We had the best time at this gorgeous spot! The patio is spectacular with a grill, hammock, couches, fire pit, pool, and basketball court all in one spot - we spent most of our time outside enjoying it all. We loved how much care was put into the home, from the garden growing on the hillside to all the fun decor inside. Location was perfect for exploring Marin County and up north, as well as a quick drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. Home was clean and kitchen was well-equipped. Would love to return!

San Rafael, Marin County

The heart of Marin County

Once a Spanish mission settlement, San Rafael is now the county seat of Marin County. Its lively downtown is filled with restaurants and shops, with the Mission San Rafael Arcangel at its center. Take the kids swimming at McNear’s Beach Park, visit the Marin History Museum, embark on a family tour with a Wildcare naturalist, or explore the fantastic Farmers Market at the Civic Center.
