    About this property

    Fairfax-walk Downtown: Large Sunny Gardens; Laundry; Wifi -- Premium Property

    Beautiful inside and out! This sunny, garden guest house is an upscale vacation property -- nothing old or funky about it; modern construction, with high quality appliances and fixtures (built in 2012). It is situated on a large, flat, sunny lot landscaped with gardens and patios to feel like a resort. The Honey Bee was designed with privacy in mind -- from both the main house and the neighbors, and has its own private patio with furniture and a bbq. Built to code, including a fire suppression sprinkler system. The furnishings were purchased new, and the art is locally sourced. You'll love the high ceilings, fireplace, granite counters, and natural light, -- a generous 650 sq. ft. with lots of closet space. It even has it's own laundry area, as well as off-street parking. You won't want to leave. Please check out our reviews; we get wonderful 5-star feedback about both the guest house and the gardens. Even if you are visiting on business, you can feel like you are on vacation. The quaint village of Fairfax is lively, with one main intersection, lots of great places to eat (Brew Pubs, Indian, Thai, Mexican, Italian, Japanese, Health Food and more), a 6-screen movie theater, several live-music clubs/bars, multiple coffee houses and bike shops, grocery stores, a weekly farmer’s market, several yoga studios, and a large new, upscale health food store. The town is surrounded by nature and miles of hiking and biking trails on and around Mt. 'Tam' (the birth place of mountain biking over 30 years ago). Centrally located in sunny Marin County's best weather area, Fairfax is a destination in it's own right. And it offers easy access to the entire Bay Area -- San Francisco (by car, bus, or ferry), 'the Bay,' Mount Tamalpais State Park, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, West Marin and Point Reyes National Seashore, the Pacific Coast beaches at Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, or Bolinas, and the world-famous Napa/Sonoma Wine Country. And don't forget the other charming towns in Marin, including Sausalito, Mill Valley, San Anselmo, Larkspur and San Rafael. Keywords: Cottage, granny unit, in-law unit, guest house, casita, bungalow

      Amazing space, everything you could need

      Beautiful cottage, great yard, and walking distance from downtown in a peaceful and beautiful setting. I will definitely look to stay here again when in the area. Amanda was very responsive and incredibly accomodating. 1000 thanks!

        Lovely cottage in a nice lively village

        We (couple with a 10 months old baby) really enjoyed staying at Amanda's cottage in Fairfax. The cottage has everything you need with a family with one small child and although it's situated just behind the main house, we had a lot of privacy. Fairfax is a nice village with sufficient facilities (restaurants, supermarkets, gas stations and even a movie theater!). We used Fairfax as a basis for visiting the following highlights in the area (max. 1 hr. drive): Point Reyes, Muir Woods and San Francisco city. We totally recommend the cottage!!

            Amazing cottage!

            This is such cute place, and very spacious for two people. It had a full kitchen with every single appliance you would ever need. The fireplace was really nice to have in the evenings to snuggle by. The bed was very comfortable. The property is really well landscaped, and there were nice areas to sit outside to enjoy the sun. The cottage is very close to downtown, a short drive or a 5-10 minute walk. I will definitely stay here again!

            5/5 Excellent

              5 Stars!
