Stay at a serene oasis while visiting Bay Area friends or relatives. This cozy 'lil Mexican-flavored home has many upgrades, including HW floors, French doors, recessed lighting, outdoor decks, gardens, and a relaxing hot tub under the stars. There is a small casita out back where a great housemate lives, plus 2 kitties and a small dog live here as well! Your booking supports my small nonprofit that exposes corruption in family court systems worldwide that are harming many vulnerable children.
This sweet little house offers a nice quiet retreat if you're in the Bay Area visiting relatives or friends, or for any reason. The house has been remodeled with many upgrades, including warm hardwood floors, French doors onto outdoor decks, new gardens, and a relaxing hot tub under the stars. Enjoy views of the surrounding hillsides from every room in the house. Guests frequently comment on how incredibly quiet it is here, and how well they slept while staying here.
There is one small sunny bedroom for rent- with a new plush queen bed, so it comfortably sleeps a solo traveler or a couple. Enjoy the TV in your room, if you'd like. The bathroom is shared, and was recently remodeled, except for the new floor, which is coming soon.
My roommate Jess (a mid-30's massage therapist) lives out back in a little casita. He is very friendly, easygoing and busy, so he's often not around. If you do spot him, he may be coming or going to the shared bathroom or kitchen.
Guests have full access to the kitchen and all main living areas, including on-site laundry facilities for those staying more than 2 nights.
Sun Valley is a hidden gem, a quiet little neighborhood centrally located one mile west of downtown San Rafael. There's a small market just two short blocks from the house and hiking trails to open space just blocks away. Street parking is easy. We're perfectly situated just 20 mins north of downtown SF and 30 mins south of California's world renowned wine country in Sonoma and Napa Counties. Enjoy our hiking trails to waterfalls, mountain biking on Mt. Tam, or the various cultural amenities that the City has to offer. Marin County can't be beat if you want to explore the Bay Area's natural beauty just outside of San Francisco.
I recommend renting a car while you are here, since public transit is limited around these parts.
I've got a sweet 18 lb dog and 2 wonderful outdoor/indoor cats at the house, so if you are allergic to cats or dogs, please know this. No litter boxes here though- don't worry- they go outside! Some guests have had trouble with their AT&T cell phone service here, but all others appear to work fine. Guests can use my landline if you run into any AT&T cell issues.
Guests will rent a small private bedroom in this 980 square foot 2-bedroom house and have full access to the kitchen, hot tub and all main living areas. The bathroom is shared, and laundry can be accessed by guests who are staying for more than 2 nights.
Общение с гостями
Whenever possible, I will meet you upon your arrival to welcome you, show you around the house, and answer any questions you might have about the area. I've lived in the Bay Area for 20 years and am happy to share restaurant suggestions, or point you toward my favorite hiking trails. I work from home and at nearby cafes and am happy to share my home with fellow travelers.
If you like coffee or tea in the morning, let me know how you like it (cream, soy, sugar, etc), and I'll be sure to have that on hand so you can start your morning off right!

I work quietly from home in my dining room, and I welcome guests to fire up their laptops anywhere around the house, inside or out. I just ask that you please make any lengthy phone calls from either your bedroom or from one of the outdoor decks to ensure privacy and peace for both of us!
No smoking in the house please. Quiet after 10 or 11pm is also requested since this is a serene residential neighborhood. No heavy drinkers, massage oils, or candles please. This is a cozy, shared home with a shared bathroom that many guests have loved, but if you are seeking a truly private getaway, you would be better off booking another place. Thanks for agreeing to these minimal house rules before booking!

I am an easygoing 51-year-old California woman who enjoys eating healthy, practicing yoga, hiking in nature, making a difference and traveling the world. I am always open to meeting new friends!
I love traveling to Mexico, and you will feel the Mexican influence in my home. I am also an animal lover. I enjoy meditating, and my hot tub is such a tremendous gift at the end of each day. I have recently begun co-hosting other people's homes as well, so I welcome inquiries from nearby hosts about how I can support you in your travels!
My travels have taken me to Indonesia, Singapore, South Africa, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Venice, Milan, Ireland, Costa Rica, Canada, and numerous parts of Mexico. I plan to retire in another country, where living is simpler and easier, but until that time, I will continue to enjoy welcoming travelers from all over the world into my home here in sunny San Rafael!
