Available year round, The Marin Vacation Home is a large 6
bedroom, 3 bath Vacation Rental Retreat in beautiful Marin County,
California- between San Francisco (20min's) & the Wine Country (30-40).

Tastefully furnished with Full amenities for 14 provided, this home
makes the perfect getaway! 5 of the bedrooms have Queen beds, the 6th
bedroom has 2 full size beds- all have deck and garden access with
great views. There is an additional bonus room, the "Loft" that comes
complete with games and large TV, plus plenty of sofa seating. Again,
great views.

Enjoy large windows, high wood beamed ceilings, spacious gourmet
kitchen and fantastic Main areas with awesome panoramic views that
extend over empty open space, out to san francisco bay and the wine
country! The property and the home feels natural and
serene, a feeling that Marin is well known for and which makes this
area unique.

The “American Style” Gourmet kitchen that opens up to a very
large and spacious Great Room and Formal Dining area which seats 12-
14 people comfortably. This Gourmet kitchen is complete with top
amenities; Modern Stainless steel Gas Range, 48" built-in Monogram
Refrigerator, & a 28 bottle Wine Fridge for those Wine Country finds!

The spacious Great Room has large, comfy, seating areas that lend
itself to talking and taking in the views. The formal dining area
branches off this main room, also taking in the views. An antique
Brass chandelier hangs from the Great Room’s high ceilings. A bonus
loft area, used as a reading area and hang out, is part of the room
atmosphere from above.

Large decks, sunny open lawn areas, numerous meandering pathways and
glorious Panoramic Views embrace this Marin Property which is
completely Private and fenced.

Sit back, relax with friends and loved ones as you watch sunset take
over the Lucas Valley Mountains, San Francisco Bay, Wine County and
the home itself.

The neighborhood, Los Ranchitos, is a unique, undiscovered nook in
central Marin that embraces country living in Suburbia. All homes in
the area of Los Ranchitos consist of 1+ acre estate properties that
allow agricultural activities and farm animals. Down the street, on
Owens Farm, there is a miniature donkey and two goats that love to
be greeted by people passing by on walks. Also, neighborhood offers
direct access onto Terra Linda Open Space ridge trails where one can
take in Views of Mt. Tamalpais, Marin Civic Center (a Frank Lloyd
Wright building), and the San Francisco Bay. China Camp State Park
is just a hop & skip away, full of tidal marshlands, forested
meadows and wondrous forgotten trails.

The proximity of the neighborhood to Marin and Bay area activities
can’t be beat!
