About Millicent Skiles
My family and I have LOVED our home in Mill Valley ever since we moved here seven years ago. We just completed a major remodel of our home with an eye to making it fun and fabulous for our three children (ages 4-9).

Why Millicent Skiles chose Mill Valley
This property is close to everything, yet tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with lots of indoor and outdoor space. It is serene and lovely, with lots of trees. It is the perfect place to host a party or just quietly spend some time with family and friends. The separate living room and den make it a perfect place for adults and kids to have their own spaces for entertaining.
What makes this House unique
Mill Valley is the perfect jumping off point to explore the entire Bay Area. San Francisco is just 15-20 minutes away. The East Bay and nearby Wine Country are an easy drive away. Plus Mill Valley itself is absolutely charming!! There are lots of theatre venues, superb restaurants and many reasons to never want to leave.

Family vacation to watch baseball and visit SF.
The house was very nice and spacious. Mill Valley is a nice quaint area with great shops and a great selection of places to eat.
House has many places to sit and relax outside, including a hot tub and fire pit. My children enjoyed the paddle ball court and basketball goal. Kitchen is wonderful with great views of the outdoors and the family room is large and relaxing. Bathrooms are modern and spacious.
I would strongly recommend this house to others.
We loved the home. Such a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. There was plenty to keep us entertained at the house and such easy access to Mill Valley, Salsalito and San Francisco.
We loved it!
Great house, quiet neighbourhood in the Woods near San Francisco.
Clean well equipped house for large families. Well build and charming architecture with space for the whole family. Large bedrooms and bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and gym. Nice view from the patio and kitchen. Poolroom with a lovely view. Safe neighborhood.
Lodging and Location ... Just Perfect!!!
Our three generation family of twelve, seven adults and five children, enjoyed eight delightful days in this modern, spacious home. The location was perfect for us since we had outings planned for as far south as Stanford University near Silicon Valley and as far north as the Castillo di Amorosa in Calistoga with excursions to Napa and Sonoma Valleys as well. San Francisco is a scenic ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods in almost in the neighborhood, and did I mention how quaint the town of Mill Valley is?
Anyway, back to the house … after a day on the road, the well equipped kitchen allowed us to cook dinner while the kiddies played pickle ball on the side yard court or relaxed with supervision in the large hot tub. The dining room and table were very expansive (something that you don’t always find even in larger vrbo homes). Evenings were so relaxing in the living room (Does anyone want to play the grand piano?) or on the outside balcony furnished with comfortable patio furniture overlooking the bubbling pool surrounded by a lush tropical garden. The Wi-Fi was excellent too, btw.
Renting from Milly was so easy and pleasant. I highly recommend this beautiful home!
Thank you so much for the sweet review! We are delighted you enjoyed our home.
Beautiful enormous family home in Mill Valley
The recently renovated house has a wonderful flow and beautiful details. We loved the large eat in kitchen and the multi-level layout. We enjoyed the hot tub and the many fun things both inside and out for our children to play with. The design style is clean, funky, beautiful and comfortable. Appliances and finishings are top of the line. Millicent was so helpful. Whole Foods is a 1 minute drive away. All in all, a perfect week long stay in Marin!
Gorgeous house in the perfect location!
This house is beautiful! It has all the comforts of home with gorgeous decor, plus a pool table, super-automatic espresso machine, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a hot tub, a paddle tennis court and stairs to the local playground. My family and I enjoyed our time immensely.
The house is walking distance to Whole Foods, Safeway, ice cream shops, and restaurants. It is also a very short drive to Muir Woods and other state parks, and around 20 minute drives to Stinson Beach, Tiburon, Sausalito, San Rafael, and San Francisco. Alternatively, you can take a short walk to a very nice bus that will take you straight to San Francisco.
The owner left a helpful book of detailed instructions and was very responsive to our emails. We would stay in this house again without hesitation.
Our location provides easy access to Mount Tam, perfect for trail runners and mountain bikers. Within walking distance is a Whole Foods market, 2AM Club, Marin Theatre Company, Swirl frozen yogurt & ice cream and various other shops and restaurants. We are close to the downtown area (probably want to drive), which is charming and offers restaurants, galleries and unique shopping.
