Email me with any additional questions.
I live directly above your space and am very conscious of any noise or things bothersome. I use my headphones for music/TV most of the time. Although you may occasionally hear me (and I will hear you) I will ALWAYS try my best to be sure you don't!
You can text/call me on my cell 24/7 for anything.
Low cost maid service is available.
This space is below our living area. We are quiet and respectful of our guests, but you will probably hear us moving about at some point during your stay (and likewise, we will hear you). The ceiling is slightly lower than standard height but has never been a problem.
Also, we live on a hill so there are several steps to & from the guest suite. These are irregularly spaced and sometimes moist from fog or rain. Just try to always be careful!
If you are not familiar with Ran Rafael, it is easiest to plan a first arrival in daylight but not absolutely necessary. The streets to my house are winding, hilly, and narrow and some visitors find them challenging to navigate at night. But if you use the maps provided it should be fine. It is private, quiet, and peaceful.
A little info for first-time visitors to the SF bay area:
- San Rafael is close to SF, but not actually part of the city. In fact, we are across the Golden Gate Bridge from SF, in Marin County (also called the "north bay"). It is less than 15 miles to downtown from our house, but can take longer than you might expect with the bridge and city traffic. Many guests stay with us to enjoy the green space and beauty of Marin (trails, paddling, Mt Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Angel Island, Stinson beach, SF Bay, Pacific ocean) but still with easy access to the city for some sightseeing there.
- There is excellent public transit between San Rafael and SF, and adequate transit around Marin County. The most convenient/frequent schedules run M-F, and directed at commuters. Weekend schedules require some planning. There is no late-night service to & from SF. The many different ferries are an excellent way to sightsee and a great transportation mode. MUST DO- LARKSPUR FERRY TO SF!
- There is little to no effective transit directly between Marin and other parts of the bay area (i.e. east bay, etc). You would have to go through the SF and this makes for a long trip. BART does not service the north bay at all.
- SFO is convenient to reach via transit or driving. So is Oakland convenient by car, but difficult to get to by public transit from here. There are door-to-door shuttles but they are fairly expensive.
** Please note that to keep some flexibility for ourselves & visiting family/friends, we do not accept reservation requests for the distant future. We usually open up the calendar for the few upcoming months only. If you're considering a stay beyond that period, check back within that time-frame for availability email me with your request.
Here is a recent National article ranking San Rafael as one of the top, "small cities".
San Rafael Cracks ‘Most Exciting Small Cities’ Rankings
Marin’s Mission City ranks 11th in a national real estate research survey conducted by
If you like live music and can’t stand endless parades of fast-food joints, you’d be hard pressed to find a better small city in the United States than San Rafael.
That’s according to an online research report published earlier this week by headlined “These Are the 10 Most Exciting Small Cities in America.”
San Rafael just barely missed the top 10, polling 11th overall. The article includes a list of the top 50 most exciting small cities out of a 140 with populations between 50,000 and 60,000.
Movoto judged the cities in six categories categories (live music, fast food, nightlife, active life, non-fast food percentage and young residents).
San Rafael is among six California cities to make the top 50 and ranks the highest overall in the state according to the poll.
Petaluma, which ranks 34th, is the only other Bay Area city to make the list. The other California cities mentioned are National City (32nd), La Mesa (33rd), Gardena (38th) and Arcadia (47th).
Hoboken, N.J. topped the rankings that appear to have a heavy East Coast-tilt. Only two of the top 10 cities are west of the Mississippi (No. 6 Manhattan, Kan., and No. 9 San Marcos, Texas).
San Rafael was ranked No. 3 in the live music and non-fast food percentage rank, and is the eighth most active city according to the poll.
Private entrance and exit to your vehicle. This is a great neighborhood. It is very important not to inconvenience the neighbors in any way! NEVER PARK OR BLOCK the alley entrance. It works best to park with two wheels up on the little used sidewalk. It creates more room to drive on this narrow street.
Interazione con gli ospiti
I am always available 24/7 to answer questions or give my 30 year+ Bay Area expertise on restaurants, sight seeing, day trips, SF, Wine Country, Tahoe, or the beach! Or as I said it is private enough you may not see me or my family unless you want to.

FYI-THIS SPACE USES A "SEWAGE EJECTOR". IT WORKS GREAT BUT WILL CLOG UP IF TAMPONS OR OTHER LARGER OBJECTS CLOG IT UP. IT IS AN LENGTHY AND EXPENSIVE REPAIR CAUSING ALL OF US PROBLEMS. PLEASE BE CAREFUL NOT TO CLOG TOILET!
Flexible non-smoking space (OK on deck out-side) with private entrance so you will probably not see me or my family unless you want to. Only requirement is to always use common sense and respect for others (noise etc.) which you will always get from us. Email/text/call me with any questions. You can call me 24/7
