This spacious Marin County hideaway 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 within a stone’s throw of San Francisco, San Jose, and Napa Valley wine country, the Longwood Drive Residence is within walking distance of charming downtown San Anselmo and is close to shopping, restaurants, playgrounds, and ocean beaches. The nearly half-acre yard is ideal for active outdoor play, and there is a large fenced in pool, a wooden playhouse, and plenty of seating for outdoor entertaining around the fire pit. Inside, the gourmet eat-in kitchen steals the show, with open access to a cozy nook that invites families to cook and relax together. Sip a glass of local wine by the garden while the children sample fresh fruit straight from the tree.

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.
