“Kate\'s house is quite large and very much a loved and lived-in family home, with a big choice of games and books and a well-stocked kitchen. The local San Anselmo location is great, with restaurants and an excellent ice cream parlour only a short walk away. You are also only a short drive from San Francisco and Sausalito and from beaches and the redwood forests, so it\'s a wonderful base for exploring.”

Where is it?
Our house is north of the Golden Gate Bridge and provides the best of both worlds - the beauty of San Francisco and the quite of Marin...
Novato is, at first glance, a pretty typical American suburb with side by side houses, and a quant little main street. But it is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of California, surrounded by bay on one side, and lush hills on the other.
There are endless hiking and mountain biking trails in the area. It takes half an hour to get to downtown San Francisco by ferry boat from nearby Larkspur (15 minutes away) or about an hour by car ( depending on traffic). My son commuted to school in San Francisco daily. Napa and Sonoma are also both a short drive away. We are halfway between Napa and San Francisco, so you can just as easily go wine tasting and picnicing, as you can explore the city musuems.
The surrounding area is incredibly beautiful, with lush hills, sequoia trees and breathtaking Northern California scenery. We are half an hour from the beautiful coastline and beaches.
Be careful, once you come and visit, you won't want to leave.
While the city of San Francisco is covered in fog between June and September, the sun still shines brightly in Novato.
