Guest suite in San Quentin
Unique, artistic retreat space along the Bay
Private room, private bathroom, private entrance. Single occupancy. No kitchen access. Large room with vaulted ceilings at the back of my Victorian home, newly renovated with Mexican traditional tile and maximal natural light. If you want a quiet retreat setting on a longer journey, or are simply passing through for work and need easy access to the throughways in all directions, this is a perfect Marin rest stop. Located across the street from the Bay with stunning views, beach access close by.
