Welcome! This fantastic 1930's home in Central San Rafael is a perfect space if you enjoy a quiet and serene setting that is close to everything but feels like a retreat. Downtown and groceries are an easy 10 minute walk. This is also a great home-base and long-term guests are warmly welcomed and common. The bathroom is shared, as are the kitchen, living room, and back yard, but in general all of these spaces are lightly used and readily available. Please no heavy drinkers or drug use please.

The space

Great space, very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, chill space in back yard, and a wonderful hot tub that is set on the hot side. I also just installed a small infrared sauna! Woohoo!

Guest access

Bedroom, shared bathroom, kitchen, living room, back yard. Parking is down the hill approximately a 2 minute walk. There is storage in the fully outfitted kitchen for your food, and it is a nice space to cook in.

Interaction with guests

I am easy going and flexible around how we interact, as long as it is respectful. If there is ever an issue, we talk it out like adults.
If you are a heavy drinker or frequent drug user, we will not be a match. Please look elsewhere. If you are a conscious, considerate, pleasant humanoid, come stay here with me!
I've lived in this area most of my years and know a lot about a lot here, and I'm more than glad to share. Happy to help out in any way I can to make your stay a great one.

Other things to note

So that I know you are reading this, which will help us make sure it's a match, please respond with the word 'magnificent' somewhere in your message.

Lu’s place was the perfect place for me while in town for a conference. I had everything I needed. It was really quiet and private. I didn’t get a chance to use the hot tub but I’ll be sure to review it after my next visit.

Lu is a great host. Very accommodating and generous. Gave us full use of the living area, kitchen and invited us to take whatever we needed from the refrigerator. His home is warm, clean and very pleasant.

Great stay for 4 days as I relocated from Georgia to the Bay Area

Lu's place was clean, quiet, and comfortable. It is great for anyone who has no problems walking up and down a hill and climbing stairs. Lu is very hospitable and accommodating.
