Finding Short Term Furnished Rentals in Marin

by Christopher Barrow 5. June 2009 08:34

We get a lot of calls on our office line about short term, furnished rentals in Marin.  Sometimes the calls are from tenants looking for rentals; sometimes it's owners wondering what the current market is like for furnished rentals. I am happy to help with six month and longer furnished leases; that's generally the minimum my partners and I work with, though there are always exceptions.  My partner Darcy just leased a 3 month fully furnished rental in Larkspur for $4250/month, and I just leased a three month rental in Mill Valley for $7500/month.  There are usually a variety of options out there in Marin if you're looking for temporary housing.

When a tenant calls me looking for furnished options, I first need to know how long they would like to lease the rental.  Recently, a woman from Florida called.  She wanted a luxury two week rental, with the option to transition to a two month rental after that.   Unfortunately, our leasing company doesn't handle very short term 2-week, or two month even, rentals like that.  Not because we don't want to help, but because we're just not set up to handle the turn over of such short term vacation rentals.  If you're looking for a two month or shorter lease in Marin, your best bet will be a website like  These are rentals posted by owners themselves - Darcy and I use it all the time when we're considering our own vacations.  Another option for short term rentals in Marin is International Quarters.  We send a lot of business their way when we can't handle the short term request ourselves!   If you have pets, a lot of local families in Marin end up at Marin Suites in Corte Madera.  They have a great central location, are pet friendly, and can be one of the most economic options.

If you're looking for a three month or longer furnished lease, my leasing team and I have a couple of listings that are great for those executive-style temporary properties.  One my rental listings is on the water in Novato in Bel Marin Keys.  It is fully furnished with gorgeous water views.  I have another furnished rental in Belvedere - also turn-key fully elegantly furnished and ready to go!  The nice thing about both of these rentals is that they are simple to move right into....just bring your suitcase and your toothbrush!
