I am a local in lovely Marin County, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love great cheese, wines and travel. I love books, live performance art, and did I mention great food? :) Perfect guests are people who want somewhere quiet to relax while visiting the area and enjoy other people and their privacy too. If you would like to visit wineries please let me know!
