I am Italian and I have been living in this beautiful area for almost 40 years. I know it very well since I have been working in the local tourism industry for 25 years and will be happy to provide you with all the information you may need to have a great vacation! I am not going to be present during your stay but will be available via phone, e-mail or text. I have 2 large dogs and a cat and they lived in the property at times. Please feel free to contact me with any question. Although I am fluent only in English and Italian I will be able to exchange written communications also in German, French, Spanish and Portuguese. I am a nature lover and, if you are too, I can give you suggestions for hikes and excursions around this area. My dogs are my best friends and I understand the importance to share a vacation with them. If you are a responsible dog owner and your pet is well behaved, both of you are going to really enjoy the house!
Thea purchased this house in 1993
My husband and I bought this property 20 years ago and put a lot of work in it to make it spacious and comfortable. His green thumb and artistic nature transformed a yard of gravel and cement in a lush garden with trees, shrubs and flowers everywhere. Although the property is located very close to the city we love the tranquility of this area and the proximity to beaches, forests and mountains. A very relaxing place without crime, noise and pollution.
This is the perfect place to relax and rest after a fun filled day of sightseeing and exploring the magnificent region with all its amenities,
My wife and i have travelled to Mill Valley for years to hike and enjoy the wonderful Northern Cal outdoors. We have stayed at a few Inns and other places but none more comfortable and relaxing than this quiet home in the heart of Mill Valley. Close to absolutely everything this tidy abode was a gourmet's delight, outfitted with a kitchen that had everything. Nine different countertop appliances, Bosch refrigerator, Bosch range, and just every kitchen item you would ever want! Beautiful back yard , complete with a parade of cats, birds, and its own Hippopotamus. Comfy beds, great lighting options, modern windows and even flatscreen TVs when you wanted to depart from nature and just hang out. Definitely returning to this home for an even longer stay.
A great house, a beautiful yard and well equipped kitchen. It's clear that Thea really wants guests to enjoy their time. We were surprised to find a food processor and stand mixer along with every kind of pan or and plate you can think of.
We were the area to visit relatives, so the location was good for us, however location could be closer to town or within walking distance of things to do. It's a great location for hiking and access to the national parks though. Also, there is only one bathroom, which can be a little rough. All in all, the house was a great setting for a wonderful vacation. Definitely recommend.
Our family was looking for a home away from home that could comfortably sleep a family of 6 and 2 beagles. Thea's home exceeded our expectations in comfort and amenities. From warm in-floor heating to modern electronics and free wi-fi (a must for teens) to lounging in the beautiful back yard full of herbs and spots of warm sunshine, the home was great in every way. The adjacent dog park was a real treat for our dogs, Lucy and Mel.
The property was very clean and well-maintained. While we didn't have the opportunity to meet Thea, she was only a phone call or text away. As others have mentioned, the welcome card and wine, one white and one red, were a nice touch in a home so close to wine country!
While in Mill Valley we enjoyed driving through the quaint neighborhoods and downtown area, discovering dog friendly trails and beaches, sailing in Sausalito, roasting hotdogs over a bonfire at Muir Beach, and viewing beautiful sunsets from both Muir and Rodeo beaches.
Our family highly recommends Thea's home and we hope to return again in the not too distant future!
Thea is such a wonderful person she made sure everything was perfect and perfect it was, 2 bottles of wine on arrival and a spotless clean home.
Everything anyone could possibly need , from a full pantry ,to bedding and laundry. You will not need to bring anything along except your clothes.
The backyard was wonderful warm and inviting and the perfect location to everything from drug store to restaurants.
Thea ,Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful home, I know we will be friends forever, and I am sure we will return very soon.
All my best to you.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Thea's lovely home in Mill Valley. The kitchen has everything one could want. Thea made certain we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Easy access to the freeway is a plus. Whole Foods is close by. We would stay there again.
My family and I recently stayed in this home near San Francisco for one week. The location was perfect. It was around 1 hour drive to Napa Valley, 25 min to down town San Fran (depending on traffic), 15 min to Muir Woods, and only a few minutes to amenities such as gas station, Walgreens, Coffee shops etc.
The house itself is exactly as listed. Nice quiet location away from the hustle and bustle. It was clean, and had everything we needed in terms of appliances, utensils, dishes, spices etc.
The owner was available via phone or text. (Although we didn't really need anything).
The yard was nicely landscaped, with a nice patio area where we enjoyed a glass of wine under the patio heater at night.
I would definitely recommend this house. There were 5 people in our group. Only 1 bathroom was tricky at times, but manageable. I would stay here again.
Quiet family neighborhood near kids/dogs park, walking distance from transportation, surrounded by open-space reserves, parks, and coastal habitats with numerous hiking and biking trails. 5 minutes to downtown Mill Valley, 10 minutes to Sausalito, 15 minutes to Tiburon, 15 minutes to Muir Woods National Park , 25 minutes to downtown San Francisco (traffic permitting) and 25 minutes to Stinson Beach, 45 minutes to Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.
