1 bedroom apartment in rustic, charming, hidden Fairfax home, about 500 sq ft. A mile from town, in nature with great views. Kitchenette, fireplace, bedroom with double bed, fold-out couch for 1 more, composting toilet, outdoor bathing, hiking.

The space

The house is up a long flight of stairs from the street. The views make it worth it, and so does the private feeling -- there are no immediately visible neighbors. There is a tram railway for supplies and luggage. Great access to hiking trails right from here.

Guest access

Besides the privacy of your own apartment, there are shared outdoor facilities -- claw foot tub, hot shower, outdoor kitchen, large garden, sundeck, and private porch. There is a double bed in the bedroom, and a fold- out couch that sleeps 1 more.

Interaction with guests

Although the owner lives here and is available to assist, the apartment is suitable for use without any required social interaction. On the other hand, some of the best times are when we collaborate on meals and enjoy the experience together.

If you want to be inspired, stay at Tim’s amazing place on key terrain overlooking North bay SF. We had everything we needed in the little cottage. Easily one of our best memories in California. Thanks Tim

Tim's place is very special. It's a very peaceful place with amazing views. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise (the bed is placed by large windows so you can see it when you wake up) was definitely a highlight along with taking a bath at night under the stars! Wish we could have stayed longer!

This is one of the most special places I've ever stayed (and I've been around!) If you want to experience what it's like to stay in a creation that came from deep within someone's heart, this is the right place. If you value authenticity, attention to detail, stellar design and amazing views, you will be extremely happy here. Plus, Tim is super fascinating and you will probably want to invite him up for a coffee or meal. Enjoy this special space!

I am a musician and artist. I think of my house as an art project, a sculpture I live in. I've always lived in interesting, alternative places, and this one is the best yet. It is entirely constructed from reclaimed materials. The original structure was built in the early '60s by a brilliant man, who left it unfinished. I found it in disrepair and have dedicated the last 13 years to completing and expanding it. I do most of the work myself (while raising a son, earning a living, playing music, traveling -- a very full and active life).

Airbnb has been a wonderful thing. I've met many interesting people who appreciate chilling out at my oasis of peace and nature. It's helped me hang on to it.

My 21-yr-old son grew up in this house -- his old bedroom is your getaway nest. I've traveled extensively but always have been glad to return home to Marin County and my beautiful hillside. There's no place I'd rather be.
