About Jennifer Israel
I am a native of Marin, and love everything about it! Hiking, beach barbecues on Muir Beach, Mountain Home Theater, burritos in the Mission, Fairfax Scoop, wine tasting in Napa... the list goes on and on. I love Marin even more as I took a long detour from it. Our three children were born and raised in NYC, and I persuaded the family to move back here in 2013. Quite the change, brownstone Brooklyn to nature-filled Marin! We love both but are so happy to have landed here. I am an architect, an artist, and a stay-at-home Mom. I love yoga, hiking, hanging with the family, reading on the porch, and dinner with friends. My husband Sandy is a professional musician and teacher. We are a relaxed, creative family. My motto? I guess it would be: 'Have a Gratitude Attitude."

Why Jennifer Israel chose Greenbrae
A huge attraction of this property is Marin County itself, one of the most magical places on earth. Marin is famous worldwide for it's astounding natural beauty and the huge amount of land protected for public enjoyment. There are few places on the planet where you can hike, mountain bike, surf, sail, horseback ride and camp on thousands of acres of untouched wilderness, all within an hour of a major city. The variety of fun to be had in the area is unmatched: all the restaurants, museums and shopping of SF, the stunning beauty and outdoorsy lifestyle of Marin, plus wine country just 40 minutes north. Can you tell I love this place? Kentfield is in central Marin, the sunniest and mildest part of Marin. it is in central Marin, just north of the Mill Valley fog belt and leaving us sunny and mild most of the year. This is one reason we chose a house here. Kentfield is one of a string of charming small towns along the Ross Valley. I grew up one town over, in Ross, and have always loved this area, with it's nearby hikes, schools, bikes paths, restaurants, shops, and small-town feel.

Nice apartment among the trees
My grown son and I enjoyed our stay. Jennifer was a terrific host. It was very pleasant living nestled under the trees for a week. I was glad to be in shape to lug suitcases up and down the 20 stairs but was prepared for it! The fancy shower there was incredible!
Worked out great. Working in the area. Nice peace area.
Peaceful and private
We had a great stay here. It worked well as our toddler slept in the lounge and we had the bedroom and used the terrace whilst he was sleeping. It was all very equipped and clean. Also being minutes away from a washer and dryer was brilliant. It was well located to the shops, gorgeous cafes and the bus stops and ferry. I would definitely recommend and hope to be back some day soon.
An island in the stream of a busy community
I loved waking up looking at trees! No houses or lights out our window. Just nature. An oasis amid the hectic life that accompanies a great location
Very private and peaceful
We booked a stay here and were pleasantly greeted by the space. Plenty of light, quiet and relaxing settings to enjoy. Jenny is an amazingly kind and helpful host. Thank you for an amazing week!
Property is centrally located in the charming town of Kentfield, in gorgeous Marin County. Convenient to restaurants and shops, 30 min from San Francisco and 40 min from wine country. The house is walking distance from Kentfield town center, with Half-Day Cafe and Woodland Market. We are two minutes from bike paths and a 10 min drive to gorgeous hiking trails.
So much to do here! Check out the restaurants, museums and shopping in SF, only a half-hour drive away. Rent mountain bikes in the next town and explore Marin the high-adreneline way! Take an all day hike on Mount Tamalpias or Point Reyes, through redwood groves and chaparral and huge ocean vistas. See the sea lions, red-tailed hawks, maybe a bobcat if you get lucky! Kayak or stand-up paddleboard on the Bay. Stroll to downtown Kentfield and have one of the best brunches ever at Half-Day Cafe. Take leisurely walk in the lovely hills behind Kentfield. Take a wine-country tour and ship some of your favorites home. Grab dinner and a show at nearby Terrapin Crossroads, and get your Dead on. Or have an elegant dinner at Insalatas, 10 min away. Truly, this property, in this part of Marin County, is just wonderful.
