About Julie Austin

We are the owners of a property that has a long, successful history here in Mill Valley. We intend to keep the good times rolling by offering the best service and amenities in the Bay Area! We live in the house on the property that allows us to be available for all traveler needs, but we highly value your privacy!

Julie Austin purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Julie Austin chose Mill Valley

We chose this property for the same reasons you will. The property is GORGEOUS (with a capital G)! The vacation rental has a feeling of tranquility, of serenity, but has the appeal of also being close to anything you can imagine! Want to go to historic Muir Woods? You'll be 15 minutes from the entrance. Want night life and great shopping? Either drive your car or take the bus (1 block away) to Union Square in downtown San Francisco, 20 minutes away.

What makes this cottage unique

The lovely unit has an expansive front porch, where you'll enter the home and be in the glow of the living room skylight. If it's chilly, start a fire in the wood-burning fireplace. Kick off your shoes and go onto the private back flagstone patio, where you'll be surrounded by rose bushes and bird houses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for 3 nights at the cottage, and we had a great experience. The place was so cute, and decorated really well. It was super clean and quiet, and the bed was great! There are instructions for all the tvs and appliances (we are really bad with tvs, so it helped), and both tvs had full movie channels. It was cool to have that at the end of sightseeing.

Julie was so nice, and so helpful, but was only there when we needed her - she didn't hover :)

A Tam Junction Delight

  • 5 of 5

We love Julie's and Noah's two bedroom apartment in Tam Junction. The apartment is really perfect for our extended stay in southern Marin. The place is clean, quiet, spacious, has a nice kitchen and there is a new grill on the deck (thank you)! There is also a back yard patio that is very private and it gets afternoon sun. The apartment is in a friendly neighborhood that invites afternoon walks to the grocery store or coffee shop both of which are less than a mile away. You can also take a more serious hike from the apartment to places like Zen Center, Muir Beach, Stinson Beach and the all of the Marin Headlands.

Julie and Noah are wonderful folks and are fabulous hosts. They are around when you need them but they are not intrusive. The truth is we wish we saw them more during our stay. Julie is SF Giants fan and knows her baseball. Noah is a great story teller and a fun guy. We also love their 3 dogs. Ozzie, who is a yellow lab, is our favorite because we are also a lab family.

We look forward to returning again next year and won't think of going anywhere else in Marin.

Spacious, comfortable family treehouse

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. We would love to stay there again when we come back. Great kitchen, beautiful views, rain or shine, and the convenience to Muir Woods, Muir Beach, and San Francisco can't be beat. Very friendly hosts were helpful with getting the internet working.

The only problem was that the front-loader washer was left sealed with some moisture inside that molded, so I had to clean it out quite a bit before we washed our laundry.

Great location and easy access to everything

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for our 5-day vacation. With only 2-bedrooms, we brought an air bed so our teens could sleep separately from each other. The sofa would have been fine though. It was roomy enough for us to stretch out and relax after our busy days. Kitchen was well appointed and had a few basics we didn't need to buy, like sugar, tea, cooking spray, etc. which was appreciated. Lovely views, although unfortunately we visited during the North bay fire tragedy, so visibility was impaired. Lovely landscaping. Nice Sky lights. Overall, we were very pleased and would recommend it to friends. Our security deposit was promptly refunded, too! Julie was very responsive with our questions.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home amongst the trees of Mill Valley. Attached to the owner's home but they are lovely welcoming people who give you your privacy but are there should you need them.

The house is clean and well equipped, with many extra touches that you don't often get in a rental property. There was plenty of space to chill out, and the balcony in the morning gets the sun so is a lovely place to relax.

The location is a short drive from the Golden Gate Bridge for easy access to San Francisco, but also perfect for the beaches and woods in Mill Valley, as well as lovely Sausalito.

We'd love to return!

Our property is in the most ideal location. We are situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood, walking distance from a gorgeous park. We are also 7 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and 10 from San Francisco proper! We have every possible recreational activity, so a guest can be alone in Muir Woods, or in the middle of Union Square!
