Living In Style
I have lived at Smith Ranch for four years. We had lived in San Rafael since 1956. I serve on a San Rafael City Commission, so I wanted to stay within the San Rafael city limits. My husband and I had been looking at moving to a Retirement community just prior to his death. Four years after his death I decided to make the move.
Smith Ranch provides everything that I was looking to find in my new home. Lovely gardens with hummingbirds and bees right outside my window, a 35 acre garden that is so well maintained AND I don’t have to do any of it. Wonderful food without my having to cook prepared by our own Chef.
My first joy was watching a maintenance man removing leaves from the gutters. I didn’t have to call him, he just came and did it. While I was away, the once a week cleaning lady found a leak under the sink. When I came home I had a lovely new faucet installed. No pain, no strain and a SMALL bill from our Maintenance department.
In addition, to all that, I dine with very interesting people. Many are my Marin county acquaintances, but many are from all over the US. It is a lot better than watching the news for dinner. Please join me for dinner.
My wife and I have made our home in Southern Marin for the last 52 years. We knew it was time to move from our larger property with its maintenance responsibilities and multiple floors to a smaller, more manageable location.
Now in our mid 70’s we had looked for almost five years for the right senior community to join. After inspecting many properties from Palo Alto to Santa Rosa we focused our search on Smith Ranch Homes as the place for us. We are pleased to say we recently closed on our choice of property there. Smith Ranch offers everything we had been looking for. Many options of different dwellings, a beautiful well maintained 32-acre campus, terrific amenities, security and much more.
One can tell how a place is properly managed by engaging the staff that actually runs the day-to-day operations. Over the past few months we have met personnel from housekeeping, security, maintenance, valet and management. In every case we found all the employees to be well trained, courteous, respectful and responsive to our needs as new members of the community.
We absolutely know Smith Ranch Homes was the right choice to spend this next phase of our lives.
My husband and I have now purchased two condos at Smith Ranch in the last seven years. The first was for my in-laws and the second was for my parents. We did exhaustive research before deciding on SR. Both times! It is truly one of a kind. It is absolutely beautiful! Feels like a luxury resort! The grounds, units, clubhouse, restaurants are beautiful! The dining experience is like no other facility! A five star restaurant!
Residents are treated with great respect. All the time. By ALL the employees.
SR goes the distance to take care of their residents. Valet services of all kinds made our parents feel cared for, at the same time, maintaining their independence.
Easy maintenance, weekly cleaning, emergency call buttons in every room of their condo makes life so much easier for them!
AND, the real estate transactions were so easy and straight-forward!
We would highly recommend Smith Ranch and its Marketing Associates!
A Life of Beauty and Convenience
Smith Ranch Homes can be explored via pathways that meander through the gardens and connect residences to a wide range of amenities.
There are multiple dining options including a bistro and a fine dining restaurant with a menu prepared by a dedicated gourmet chef that can be paired with wine from the extensive collection in Smith Ranch cellars.
You can also decide to prepare meals in your custom kitchen, or enjoy the conveniences of room service or take out.
