Lovely 1-bedroom apartment (1000 sq. ft. ) is 4 minutes from the freeway, yet has the hush of nature. Striking view of beloved Mt. Tam. Sit on the intimate covered deck enjoying her through the trees.

The space

Apartment has 2 bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, a loft office with desk (and view!), a double bed with the view, wi-fi, 50" HDTV, DVD, and quiet neighbors. I'm an artist who likes plants, so there's plenty of both (art not artists!). I do request that you water the plants at least once a week. This is not a slick rental unit. It's a living home.

Guest access

Stroll Corte Madera Creek just below, and hike and bike all over the county. Swimming pool, jacuzzi, and tennis courts right out the door. 5 minute drive into the charming town of Larkspur, with its own redwood canyon and trails up the mountain. Supermarket, fine coffee and more at the base of the hill. 5 minute drive to the Larkspur ferry into San Francisco, or 12 minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge into the city. A half hour and you're in Wine Country...or Berkeley!

Interaction with guests

I will be travelling during your stay, but will leave lots of info about the condo as well as local sights. Also emergency contact numbers, mine included.
Please send something about yourself and your needs if you're interested.

Other things to note

I rent my place each time I travel, with glowing responses, but mainly through a different site over the last 9 years. Here's what a renter wrote after his first day here: "I'm still getting used to the house and the area. Kind of too good to be true:)."

Quiet enough to keep the neighbors happy. Need to water the plants at least once a week. Leave the place in good shape, a little dirtier but none the worse for wear!

Marc's place is as described. A great location with everything close nearby. The pool looks great--didn't get a chance to use but wish I could have! Marc left written notes to help with all the amenities and suggestions--which were so helpful to my settling into the place. He also communicated once I arrived--which was really nice as I had some small questions but didn't want to bother him. All around great choice in central Marin with a lovely vibe.

Marc's condo was the perfect location for Marin County and is highly recommended for trips there. Maybe 5-10 minutes to the Larkspur Ferry, this worked great for one of us attending a conference in Mill Valley while another had meetings in SF. The condo is exactly as described; clean, safe area, and filled with great art and plants! Marc was away during our week there, but he had a coffee maker delivered (unasked for and unexpected) along with a pound of coffee because he thought we might like it. This is just an example of hospitality received; we thought it was a great stay. Thanks for listing your condo, Marc!

Marc is a wonderful and kind host, his place was a lovely safe haven for us, very comfortable, a true home with all we needed, fully equipped kitchen, cozy living space, nice workspace and desk in the office mezzanine area, and beautifully decorated with art, plants and bohemian objects. We loved it! He was warm, generous and made us feel very welcome. A great location too, overlooking the mountain, quiet and yet close to all amenities and to San Rafael which was a blessing to us. We would definitely stay here again if we could!

I'm a retiree sculpting in clay as my main pursuit. As I said in my rental description, art is a big part of my life, so my condo is full of art. I also love nature, so there are plants inside, and looking outside there are great views of the beautiful landscape I live in and thrive on, highlighted by Mt. Tamalpais, or Mt.Tam.
The people I've rented to have always been positive and respectful. I like to think we've mirrored each other that way. They've unanimously appreciated their stay here, as I do.
