About the area

Enjoy the surrounding nature while still being centrally located in beautiful Marin County. Marin is a large, forested region adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco to the South, and Napa and Sonoma Counties (aka "Wine Country") to the East; arrive at these top tourist destinations by car in just a 30-40 minute drive. This neighborhood is close to all that Marin has to offer, with easy accessibility to the Bay Area and all the different towns in Marin County. It takes just 2 minutes to get to the all important Hwy 101, yet you are in a quiet neighborhood that feels remote. Finally, proximity from Your Marin Vacation Home to bay area activities can't be beat! Top tourist attractions are easily accessible from this home and with incredibly scenic drives! * Infineon Raceway (with Nascar events) is only 10 highway minutes away. * Arrive at Marin Headlands or the Golden Gate Bridge in just 25 minutes. * Muir Woods with old growth redwood trees is a must-see Marin outing only 30 minutes away. * Downtown San Francisco takes just 35 minutes. Each way provide incredible views and landscape! * Visit downtown San Rafael (where American Graffiti was filmed) in less than 10 minutes! Loads of Restaurants, specialty stores and live entertainment venues. * The famous Napa and Sonoma Wine Country is only 35 minutes away, past gorgeous marshlands and country landscape! * Explore West Marin's beautiful Pt. Reyes and beaches in 35 minutes or less! * Tour the Marin Civic Center, viewable from Your Marin Vacation Home and just a 10 minute drive away. See this famous architectural building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright - an influential masterpiece of its day. It is rumored that this buildings lines where some of the primary influences for George Lucas when creating the Star Wars series. (In fact, the town of Nicasio, in Marin and only 20 minutes from the home, is where the forest scene for Return of the Jedi was filmed. The famous Skywalker Ranch (about 10 minutes away) is also located here in Marin, along Lucas Valley.) Enjoy the Bay, Redwood Forests, Marine and Bay Coastlines, Wine Country, and Metropolitan San Francisco from this very central location in beautiful Marin County! Pets under 16lb by permission only.

“Comfortable, well appointed & convenient”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2016

We enjoyed our stay, it was very comfortable, beds were divine, linens plush. It was great to have the pool for the children to play in at the end of the day. Staff were very friendly & helpful.

“Great for families”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

We had a great time at this house. The house is very comfortable and it was easy to go to Sonoma or to San Francisco. We especially liked that the house is very well suited for families with kids, with boy's and girl's rooms. Another thing we liked was the supermarket very nearby and the shopping center 5 minutes away with Target, Costco and Sport's Authority. Ron and Kelly are great and it was very easy to do all the arrangements.

Owner's reply: Dear Manuel, It was a pleasure having you and your family staying at our vacation rental. Please come back and visit us again. Ron and Kelly

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"Landlords Ron and Kelly get top marks! Being able to rent their wonderful home gave us the opportunity to enjoy ourselves and our family who came in from all over the country to attend the wedding of one of our sons. The house is decorated very tastefully and comfortably--we look forward to doing this again. Wonderful hospitality!"

"My sister and I chose this house for our annual family get together, she drove down with her bunch from Seattle and I flew over from the UK with my crew. We were all tired when we arrived, but our weariness just melted away when we walked through the door of this lovely house. The house was spotless, airy, well-appointed with exactly the right amount of space for the kids to chill out and the adults to relax. The pool area was perfect and the bbq was all we needed during our stay. The weather allowed us to be outside the whole time with happy kids doing swimming olympics and the adults reading and sunbathing. There's a great park near by for walking the dog and letting the kids burn off even more steam and the neighbourhood was really friendly, giving us great tips for a local vineyard. We had planned on doing lots of sightseeing in SF and Napa, but in the end, we spent most of our time being a family in a gorgeous family home. Ron and Kelly have done a really good job with this house and we've got it down on our list for another family reunion in the future. It was a very special time for all of us and the house and location contributed so much to our enjoyment. We all miss it!! Thanks again to Ron and Kelly."

"We'd absolutely recommend this home to friends, family and coworkers. The property was pristine. We used it to host a 3 day organizational retreat with 12 people. It fit us perfectly. The owners were terrific and very friendly and accessible. We can't wait to go back."
-- Rachel, San Francisco, California

"We rented the house for 10 days in June 2010 and found it absolutely wonderful. As a family of 5 with teenage children the house provided ample space with all necessary amenities. The pool provided a great opportunity to cool down and the new barbeque ensured great meals. The house in well-maintained and was spotless upon our arrival. The owner provided great support throughout the stay including a small medical emergency. We will definitely consider renting the house again should we visit the Bay Area in the future. "

Kelly and Ron were the most perfect hosts for our 6th annual "Big Chill" vacation. We are four couples that get together every year for an outing to re-connect and have fun, and this vacation home was the perfect place. It was pristine, comfortable and in such a central location to everything we planned on visiting that it presented no worries at all. Each couple had a comfortable bedroom with extras to spare (in case of snoring spouses!) The grape arbor outside was incredible (and tasty!) along with other fruit trees and beautiful landscaping......and the pool was a welcome addition after a long day of wine tasting, touring San Francisco, Muir Woods, Sausalito, Alcatraz, and other fun places. You have to try Kelly and Ron's favorite place, the Viansa Winery which is very close to the house (we joined the wine club there....) So our vacation was complete with a great place to stay and we WILL recommend it to others who are planning a vacation or staying in the San Francisco area. Thank you so much Kelly and Ron!
