About The Owner

I have been happily living in this house since I purchased it. It is my home, but given the fact that I travel a lot, I have decided to share it with sensitive travelers that would enjoy the same things I do - the peace and quiet, the sun, the outdoor activities and the proximity of a beautiful city such as San Francisco.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Mill Valley

The views and the privacy are spectacular!

What makes this house unique

The house is spacious, modern, light and beautifully furnished. I have a lot of books, music and unusual art, and a very sunny deck where I like to sit and read, take a tub or simply lounge and get a tan.

I love to walk to town at sunset for a little shopping, and I love to hike the trails right behind my house where I can enjoy sweeping views of the entire Bay area.

Mill Valley is a quaint little town with good restaurants, 2 Whole Foods markets, a farmer's market on Friday, great shops, theater's and a very convenient gym and health spa facility. It is only 25/30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, close to the beaches and not far from the Napa Valley. The weather is sunnier than in San Francisco, but it rarely gets too hot. My house is in a perfect neighborhood for a woman traveling a lot, and I never have to lock my door when I'm home and feel perfectly safe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a great place for a couple visiting the Bay Area. We took the ferry into San Francisco, drove to Napa, and hiked in Marin County. It was great exploring using Mill Valley as our hub. This home was comfortable, and had a spectacular view that you could see from most of the house. We cooked several meals as the kitchen is outfitted well. This house is on a hill, with some narrow roads and turns to get there, but you get used to that rather quickly, and you're rewarded with the view. The deck is very nice, with a retractable awning. With the remote control, it is very easy to operate. There are stairs to get to the front door, so this will not work for someone who has difficulty with steps. It didn't phase us one bit. This place is fun...artwork and colors are very pleasing. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a great stay. Everything was clean and well prepared and convenient. Photos don't do justice to how cozy the home is and how special the view is. Thanks so much!!

Wonderful view, great amenities and location

Worth the price to come back from touring the city and have our own private nook in the mountains overlooking the bay. Would absolutely stay here again.

What I would change about our stay. I have thought about this for a bit........

  • 5 of 5

....... and I really can't think of anything. This place and area is hands down one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed at. My wife and I went there to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and we just wanted to relax and sightsee. A few thoughts:

* The home itself is very clean with a homey feel. The breeze flowing through the house and the views really set the mood. If you want to do some cooking, there are more pans and utensils than you will ever need.

* The area itself is whatever you want to make of it. Mill Valley is a small village of decent people. Very clean and a lot of neat things to just walk around and do. Grocery store, coffee shops, multiple restaurants are right there. Mill Valley coffee shop is a small diner with a great breakfast menu.

* A 10 min drive away is Sausalito which is a little bigger than Mill Valley. More restaurants and shops right on the bay. Seafood Peddler restaurant had great food and really good service. You can also park your car all day there and grab the ferry to San Francisco if you choose not to drive. In San Fran, you can take a quick Uber everywhere you want to go. Pier 41 is a tourist trap. Go to Chinatown and walk it. Get some Ben and Jerry's on Haight Street.

* If you want to go to Muir Woods (which you should) go online and buy your parking pass now so you won't be frustrated when you attempt to visit. It is worth it.

* Muir Beach, Rodeo Beach, and Stinson Beach are all short drives. At Stinson beach, eat breakfast at Breakers Café. Biggest breakfast burrito I've ever seen. Mt. Tam is also pretty cool. The entire area has miles and miles of hiking/biking trails available for the novice as well as the expert.

* Alcatraz. Worth the visit. Go online now and reserve your trip on the ferry from San Fran.

* Golden Gate Park is worth the short 20 min drive. Lots to see, hear, and do. The Segway Tour was fun. Eat a lobster roll from the food truck next to them. Make sure you sign up for the Golden Gate Toll Pass when you rent your car. I just went online and activated the plate number to pass through while we were there on my credit card.

* The owner and property manager are great people and will do anything to assist you with your visit.

* Oh, almost forgot. The last day, a Monday, we drove over to Napa Valley up the Silverado trail. There were hardly any tourists. Go north and cross over the ridgeline on Mt Veeder Road through the Enchanted Hills and pop out in Glenn Ellen and do Sonoma Valley.
