About Shashi

I'm pleased to share my home with you. I've lived in San Francisco Bay Area for over 40 years and I truly think it is one one of the best places to live! The stunning landscape, gorgeous weather, the wonderful people, and the abundance of things to do, there is no place like it! It is your turn now to enjoy a very quiet and secluded location!

Shashi purchased this house in 1980

Why Shashi chose Mill Valley

I wake up every morning to the amazing nature that thrives along the water front, and in the evening I am still thrilled by the blazing sunsets. Where else can you see migrating birds from your own living room? Or see Pelicans diving in the water to catch their prey? Or hear sea-lions barking?

What makes this house unique

Waterfront access, large sun room, large yard overlooking the bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful location on San Francisco Bay

  • 4 of 5

This spacious home is great for large groups. The open gathering areas provide plenty of space and the bedrooms are arranged to provide maximum privacy. Large windows look out on peaceful water views with an occasional takeoff or landing of the Marin Sea Plane to keep things interesting.

Beautiful location, varying temperatures in the house

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay in the SF area! Beautiful view of the water, large kitchen and lots of room for the 4 of us that stayed there. Only complaint would be that the guests who stayed on the bottom level couldn't find a thermostat to adjust the temperature. We found one in the room with the fireplace but it didn't seem to effect the downstairs areas. SF nights can get pretty cold and the top level would be warm and the bottom chilly at night. All in all, good place to stay. Would rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Melissa. Sorry but we have only one thermostat in this home. We have left few space heaters in the home in case of need. Thanks for staying in my home and leaving it so clean. And you are welcome back anytime.

Great for a group of people

  • 5 of 5

Our family (nine members) stayed at this house for an early Thanksgiving celebration. The house was just right for the occasion. It's a very nice house and it accommodated everyone easily. The kitchen is roomy and allowed for multiple people to be working at the same time. The views of the Bay and Sausalito from the house are excellent.

Wish we had more time

  • 4 of 5

My colleagues and I stayed here while attending a conference in San Francisco. Unfortunately, we left in the morning and returned in the evening every day and did not get to fully enjoy all the features of the home. It was great that everyone was able to have their own bedroom. The driveway is a little steep and we bumped our car on the bottom a little when going in and out. Not much to be done about that but wanted to make others aware for when they arrive. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Rebecca Miner, Thanks for your review. I am so glad that you had a great stay. Sorry about the steep driveway. In fact it used to be even steeper and rather dangerous when I purchased this home. But I had it redone, as being staying there, I needed a safe driveway. Now only low elevated cars gets little brushing at the bottom. Being water front home on a hill, the topography of the area is such that it is impossible to have an even surfaced driveway. Thanks for staying at my home. Please come again. Next time you can chose one of the other five elegant homes of mine. Regards, Shashi

Plenty of space, extra accommodating host, well-equipped house, gorgeous view. Would recommend for large groups, a different side of SF. Thank you!
