The villa is a 5000 square feet ranch style house on 2 acres in San Rafael, 20 min north of the Golden Gate bridge. We have a big room that can host 60 ppl (we've squeezed in 80!) for a party, screening, talks, dancing, art show ect, and can seat up to 26 for a dinner party (with addition of fold out tables). The grand room has a 10 person dinner table, an upright piano and 2 walls for art work. the table can be moved for a screening, talks, performances and so on. In addition there is a family room with couches and ‘squish’ (covered mattresses and pillows) for a loung-y event ( which can be moved for meetings), a wall for art work, a big screen for presentation (not hooked to cable) and a decorative fire place. We have a big kitchen with 2 sinks and an 8 person breakfast table. Outside there is a solar heated salt water pool (warm April to October), outdoors lounge area, grill, 18 person farm table near the pool, an 8 person hot tub, a thriving organic garden and a big oak tree on the front lawn for a gathering. The whole property is gated and private. In addition we have an organic garden which guests will walk through from the parking (parking and path are wood-chipped) and up to 5 bedrooms upon request. The back gate leads to open space with many trails. This property is ideal for workplace retreats, private dinner parties, day long offsite, and mild (not wild) celebrations. We can’t have noise at night as this is a residential valley, but music can be played indoors with windows and doors shut. You may be able to rent the entire house with all 5 bedrooms on occasion, pls reach out for more info. ( 5 bedrooms includes 1 master w/king bed, 1 room w/king bed, 1 room w/Queen bed, 2 rooms with bunks - queen on the bottom, single on top) We are looking forward to host you, please contact me with any questions and requests.
No smoking inside the house. Outdoors we have several spots for smoking. No loud music outdoors after dark, this is a residential valley and sound carries and impacts our neighbors. We may consider pets with deposit, pls ask. Please no glass by the pool. Guests must provide additional insurance and valid permits for all vendors All rentals include setup and teardown time. Pls ask about moving furniture and return to original state before leaving. Trash should be placed in the bins and the host will take care of the rest.
