Accurate description. Awesome full sized fridge/freezer. Close enough to S.F. yet far enough away to feel at home without the city hussel n bussel. Muir beach is very close and an awesome place to go have a Sunday picnic. Save money and book here vs paying for hotel in S.F.

Nice neighborhood. Felt very safe for morning walks. Able to park right in front. If you know the area, the ability to access Southern Marin via Wolfe Grade is a plus.

Jonathan's place was exactly what I needed in San Rafael. Check in process was simple and straightforward. Clean space, beautiful neighborhood, centrally located, close to highway 101. I would come back and stay here again in a heartbeat.

Jonathan was a great host!!! We did come in when it was a little warm outside. But we had fans that made it better. Jonathan has beautiful plants. I got to try his apples, grapefruit and grapes!! And they were delicious!! Next time I come back I'm asking for pomegranates (: I do recommend his place again. I got to run into some baby deers in the middle of the night. And that was an experience!!
