Scenic Sequoia: A Chic California Hillside Retreat
Escape city life and head to the foothills of Mt. Tamalpais to experience awe-inspiring views from this 3-bed, 3-bath vacation rental in San Anselmo. The second you step in the door you’ll be greeted with an immaculately decorated home where you can spend evenings enjoying a meal prepared in the chef’s kitchen, or a glass of local wine inside with family or friends. At this elegant abode, it’s easy to feel secluded, but you can take comfort in knowing the Bay Area is just a stone’s throw away.
