My house is set in a beautiful rustic forest like space in the midst of the redwoods in the San Geronimo Valley half way between San Rafael and Point Reyes.
I love living in the trees and having a view of open space; a feeling of being remote, yet only minutes away from the highway and then just short distances to the east or west.
Public transportation is limited, however it is doable. If you are coming from the airport, you should check the transportation ahead. In this area it is best to have your own car.
