    Sunny Marin House Ideally Located Between San Francisco & The Wine Country

    Romantic Novato vacation home in Bahia with outdoor tennis court
    You can get away from it all and still be close to everything! This sunny, relaxing house is located in a quiet neighborhood a couple blocks from great bird-watching wetlands, half a mile from a beautiful trail for walking, running or mountain biking and a short drive from downtown Novato where you can enjoy restaurants and shopping. From here you can drive across the Golden Gate Bridge to experience all that San Francisco has to offer or up to Sonoma and Napa for wine tasting. Northern California beaches, as well as the redwoods of Muir Woods and the trails and views on Mt Tamalpais, are close by. Sonoma Raceway, host to car and motorcycle racing along with regional events and festivals, is just across the Petaluma River. After a day of sightseeing or adventure you can relax on the outdoor seating overlooking the sunny backyard and enjoy a home cooked meal made in the well-stocked kitchen (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Safeway are all nearby). There are three bedrooms, all with comfortable queen-sized beds, and two bathrooms.

        My family and I rented this darling 3 bedroom house to be close to family in Novato. It was absolutely perfect for us. Great neighborhood, great backyard & very cozy and clean. We enjoyed the fantastic hiking trails in the neighborhood too.

          Fantastic for families with kids and dogs!

          We came to the area to visit friends in Napa, play golf and visit San Francisco. Perfect location!! Great house, super clean, modern and comfortable. Great back yard for our two dogs to run and chase balls. Highly recommend !

            Gorgeous Nature

            This has been a wonderful place to stay for a few weeks while our kitchen is repaired. It's comfortable and spacious, and the abundance of nature all around is what makes it really special. I love drinking my coffee in the morning on the deck and listening to the birds chatter.

              Very nice place. Loved having 3 bedrooms and 2 baths for the 6 of us! Great location between San Francisco and Napa.
