Cozy bedroom available in beautiful tree-house style home in hills above San Rafael. The home is conveniently located between Downtown San Rafael and Terra Linda near Marin Civic Center, Dominican University, and BioMarin. Just off HWY 101, it's a mere 12.8 miles to San Francisco, and a half hour drive to wine country. San Rafael has easy access to San Francisco via HWY 101 over the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as access to the East Bay (Richmond/Berkeley/Oakland) over Richmond Bridge via HWY 580

The space

There is FREE PARKING for one vehicle off street on carport. Upon parking, enter through gate, and there are two short sets of stairs to deck (no wheelchair access). My home is occupied by myself and a sweet cat named Minnie. We enjoy all the light that the house lets in on the east side with seven 10 ft windows allowing for lots of plants in and around the house. It's common to see deer, squirrels, and birds around the house either grazing on the hill above our street or down below the house in the woods. My family lives and works from the home next door, so be respectful of them. You may be able to book a great massage or yoga class - feel free to inquire!

Guest access

Guests have access to the private bedroom (first door on left from entryway), bathroom, kitchen, and living room.

The kitchen will be available to guest for refrigerator use, microwave, and electric tea kettle only. A coffee, tea, and breakfast station is set up in the kitchen with locally roasted coffees, teas, hot chocolate, breakfast cereal and oatmeal as well as sugar, honey, and agave syrup. There's no coffee maker, but a French press will be ready there to use. There will be some type of cream in the refrigerator. If there's something particular that you might need me to source, please let me know in advance so we might discuss. I ask that if you use glasses, cups, or dish ware that you hand wash and leave in dish drainer or place in dishwasher after use.

Guests have zero access to stove top, oven, fireplace, or grill. No cooking.

Interaction with guests

I'll be available via the AirBnb message service, or text message to discuss any problems, provide advice, or recommendations, etc. Please give me the chance to resolve any trouble you may be having to increase your enjoyment during your stay.

Other things to note

The house is equipped with hi-speed wi-fi. Network and password posted in room, as well as on Airbnb application.
There is a Roku TV in the room set-up with Xfinity app (basic cable), Sling TV app (more cable channels including HBO), Hulu app (on demand tv & movies), Netflix and a number of other channels.

There's also a Roku in living room with the same channel set-up. Power to TV and volume is on right side of TV (no remote).

Minnie (the cat), is free to roam inside or outside - so don't worry about her getting out. Please let her in if she's at the door, she's probably hungry.

Shower heat: Turn off is at 3 o'clock. Hot water is just up a bit at 2 0'clock, and it gets cooler the further up you go towards 12 o'clock.

My room mate and I were scrambling to find a place to stay in case we were evacuated from these North Bay fires on Monday night. Seth's place brought us comfort and a sense of relief in a hectic time. Seth recommended restaurants in the area and to our surprise, he had called ahead and made sure our bill was covered. It is this kind of thoughtfulness and generosity that made my room mate and myself feel comforted in a crazy time. We were able to add another night to our stay thanks to Seth's flexibility. We are now back at our place, safe from the fires and Seth has checked in with us, making sure things are okay. We are very grateful for our stay at Seth's place and we know anyone who stays with him is in good hands!

I was in town for a very important interview and I could not have asked for a better place to stay during my visit. It was clean and very quiet. I slept really well which never happens when I am away from home. 5 stars for sure and Seth was an amazing and friendly host! I would highly recommend my friends and family to stay here

Seth was a great host. The bedroom was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The house is really cool and has a beautiful view. It was a short walk to downtown San Rafael, which made it incredibly convenient. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Wow, Seth’s place was gorgeous! We didn’t get in until late and left early so we didn’t meet Seth, but he was great in communicating. Everything is clearly thought out and the welcome treats were perfect! We would’ve loved to stay longer, but will hopefully be back soon!

Seth's place was beautiful and had great views of nature and the beautiful trees! While I never actually met Seth (he was out of town,) he was super attentive and answered any questions I had. We stayed in the middle of a heat wave, and he gave us some great tips for cooling off the apartment (there is no A/C.) He also offered french press coffee and restaurant recommendations which was super helpful. Thanks Seth!
