The Space

Nestled into a lush, beautifully designed garden, flanked by a majestic fig tree, this garden cottage is the quintessential Mill Valley retreat for a visit to this gorgeous area. The front of the cottage features a cute porch that faces the garden. Inside, 'center stage' you will find an incredibly comfortable queen size bed with fabulous European sheeting. The bathroom has a glass enclosed shower and the window faces the fig tree. The kitchen area is small but well appointed with a large refrigerator, a four burner gas stove and sink. You will also find a coffee machine for your morning java and a microwave for a quick meal.
A cute round mirror-topped bistro table with two chairs sits in front of a window facing the garden.
There are of course WiFi and cable TV.
Snuggled into the yummy sheets and surrounded by nature you might have your best sleep ever.

We can direct you to local shops and restaurants in Mill Valley, Sausalito and beyond if you would like to explore. The opportunities for incredible dining experiences in the Bay Area are probably too numerous for your short stay, but you might want to explore some if you have time.

From the moment you arrive at our cottage you will know that you've found a gem property with comfortable and tasteful furnishings, 5 star amenities, and the prime location in the heart of Mill Valley.

If you prefer a shorter stay (less than 3 night minimum), please inquire about supplemental fees.

Mill Valley, California, United States · Member since September 2012

We've lived on both coasts (NY and CA) and have been back in the San Francisco area for quite some time now. Mill Valley is a treasure but we love to travel (Europe, Asia and South America) to take in different cultures, meet people, and experience the local food, music, art, architecture and nature. This is a special location from which to explore the trails of Marin County or to drive a short distance to San Francisco, Berkeley or Napa Valley...and if you need suggestions don't hesitate to ask. We are just 100 meters from the Mill Valley Library, Old Mill Park and less than a 5 minute walk to Mill Valley Beer Works (check out the review), Peets, the Depot and entertainment (142 Throckmorton and The Sweetwater).
