About

Our sunny home on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood has a master bedroom with a Cal King bed that opens onto a large south-facing deck, a guest bedroom that doubles as an office, two full baths, a sun room, and a stunning view. We have a large living/dining room with a flat-screen TV and stereo system and a large, very well-equipped kitchen with eating area. There's a fireplace, a back garden, a grassy front yard, and a washer and dryer in the 2-car garage. We overlook a marsh (complete with snowy egrets) and a boat harbor, with a wonderful view of Mt. Tam. We're close to hiking and bike trails, shopping, restaurants, San Francisco, the East Bay, the Northern California coast, and the wine country. This is a private home, not a townhouse. The rent includes water, garbage, high-speed wireless internet, premium TV cable, and gardener - everything except gas/electricity charges, pay-per-view TV, and international phone calls. No smoking, and no cats, please (we're allergic to cats but will consider a small, well-behaved dog). The house is available for rent while we travel, typically during the late spring and early fall, but at other times as well. Our dates are flexible, so try us! We're also happy to discuss a home swap. If you're interested, please send us an e-mail with your phone number and a good time to call. We look forward to meeting you! TESTIMONIAL FROM FORMER RENTERS, BOB AND DIANE We landed in Jeff and Janis' wonderful house after a year of living in rather small quarters in Paris and traveling Europe. Their quiet, spacious, comfortable home and beautiful gardens were the perfect place for us to land and experience life in the Bay Area. Soon we were on their bicycles and riding along San Francisco Bay. Coming home at night to their peaceful deck overlooking the tidal marsh and bird life from the hot tub [since removed] became a lovely routine. We enjoy cooking and used their well-stocked and spacious kitchen. We highly recommend this wonderful haven.
