Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Owner chose San Anselmo
This is our primary home. Moved here because we wanted to feel on holiday all the time. We travel a lot.
What makes this House unique
Large heated pool and hot-tub nestling in the trees. Beautiful setting, gorgeous light and a gem of a home. Close to San Francisco, Pt. Reyes National Seashore, beaches, Napa.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Cozy family home with a pool
Cozy family home with nice kitchen/eating area flow and million dollar views. Private backyard with a pool and hot tub and many lounging areas to enjoy being outdoors. Nice location on a quiet street in between San Anselmo and Fairfax downtowns. We felt quite at home and the kids miss being able to jump in “their” pool whenever they wanted.
Eclectic Home in the hills
Very comfortable place. Pool and hot-tub a real plus. Great view of Mt Tam and surrounding valley. Close to the charming towns of Fairfax, San Anselmo, and Ross. Not too far from the city, wine country and coast.
We hope to make this a family tradition!
My family of four just spent the Christmas holidays at this charming, wonderful house. And even though it rained almost every day of our visit, the weather could not put a damper on our trip, largely because we absolutely loved staying in this house. (My husband joked that he hoped the owners wouldn't mind a lodger... because he was not planning to leave). The owners opened their home to us as if we were their close friends. And my daughter was so inspired by their art that she came home and tried to replicate it. More than anything, though, we just knew that we were staying in the home of a happy, warm family (odd as that sounds given that we never met them!). I am a Bay Area native and know Marin County well. You cannot beat the location for a true "Marin" experience: close to the city, but an absolute retreat. Best things: the views at sunrise and sunset; their extensive, interesting library and art collection; relaxing in the hot tub on a rainy evening; driving the "back way" to Pt. Reyes. Also, the proximity to open space trails means you can hike in the morning with views of the SF skyline and the East Bay, then make into the city for lunch in Chinatown. The neighborhood is great for running, too. Truly, this house (and its location) exceeded our expectations.
We want to go back every year!!!
My family and I spent a wonderful month of July in this fantastic house in San Anselmo. We wanted to be near San Francisco but in the surrenders. We could not have found a better place.
The house is beautiful. It is decorated with works of art made by the owners. They are really nice. We spent hours trying to choose which one we liked most and we were not able. We loved all.
It is great to have breakfast in the kitchen or in the dock, depending on the weather. Views are extraordinary. The swimming pool is very nice and my children spent long time in it. When you are in it you don’t need to go anywhere else.
All my family agree that these holidays have been one of the best we’ve ever had.
A Perfect Week
We spent a GREAT week in this awesome home over Xmas. We were visiting family in San Anselmo but also wanted a base for getting into San Francisco - approx 25 mins to the Golden Gate Bridge. Everything was easy - the house was clean, fully equipped and the hot tub is really special nestling in the trees. The location is an ideal combination of feeling like the countryside, including the beaches and Point Reyes National Seashore - but close enough to San Francisco. Strongly recommend!
Two summers in this house (2012 and 2013)
Artists' home with one of the best views in Marin. Seeing the sunrise from the balcony in front of the kitchen or the Moon rising over Mount Tamalpais is priceless.
We're from Germany and spent two summers in this nice and individual house and just loved it. The owners are very friendly and have been helpful in every case. Too bad that we cant come over from Europe to stay in the house again this year.
Marin County - known for the great outdoors life; hiking, walking, biking, surfing. Great food and wine and scenery, and 30 mins from San Francisco.
