Description

The space

The calendar tab above is accurate.

The studio apartment is completely private. The retro modern apartment occupies the entire bottom floor of a 4 story private home. The house is on a hill overlooking Tennessee Valley in the Marin Headlands in the Golden Gate National Recreational Area. The windows look out towards trees and the hills of the Marin Headlands. The house is just a few doors down from the end of the street that opens up right up into the Marin Headlands. The apartment has its own separate entrance and staircase from the street. You have your own private deck outside your door. The Tempurpedic style memory foam queen size bed is very comfortable. The bed is in it's own elevated space off the studio floor so the unit is more like a 1 bedroom because the studio space is clear and open with plenty of room even with a couch and dining set. However, there is no door to separate the main living room area from the bed. The kitchen private and is well appointed to make any size meal. It has a gas stove, oven, microwave, toaster oven coffee machine, and full size refrigerator. The bathroom has a shower but no tub. The living area has a couch that could be slept on but would not be ideal for a tall person. For families with small children we offer a collapsible "Pak'N'Play" crib at no additional charge. We can also offer an additional inflatable double bed for larger groups.

You have your own private staircase on the other side of the house from our entrance. The staircase winds through a garden from the street above to your own private entrance on the bottom floor. There are roughly 30-40 steps to the street level. You will be staying in a National Park with the same designation as a place like Yosemite or Yellowstone, yet you will only be a 10 minute drive from San Francisco. Walk out the door straight into the National Park and hike on any of the dozens of trails to the nearby beaches, valleys, the Golden Gate Bridge, and horse stables. The horse stables are just a 15 minute walk away. Sign up to ride a horse into the 10,000 acre National Park that will be your back yard. Easily drive or take public transit into San Francisco. If you work in San Francisco but would rather stay in a peaceful setting there is convenient public transit nearby to take you into the city. Go sailing or have a fantastic meal in Sausalito. Check out Muir Woods National Monument and Stinson Beach. Or drive 40 minutes north to the heart of the wine country to go wine tasting and take in the views. Mill Valley and Vista De Valle is located in a very convenient location to see both SF and the beauty surrounding it.

Marie and Jesse are excellent hosts. The studio is spacious, with a large, fully equipped kitchen. I also liked the alcove bed layout as it frees up space. The views are simply amazing, especially the morning sunrise. I enjoyed taking hikes into the Golden Gate Nat. Recreational Area, with trails that begin almost from the front door! For those who don't like to cook, a Good Earth recently opened nearby, where you can get healthy prepared foods, salads, and very tasty desserts. All in all, I highly recommend staying here.

The view is terrific. There is long stairway to the unit that is not well lit. The bed is in a raised alcove that may be difficult to get in and out if if you have hip or knee problems.

It is a gorgeous spot, and convenient to the Mill Valley shops. Space was a little small for two people for an extended stay.

Clean and convenient to everything. Plenty of on-street parking. Friendly hosts. Comfy bed. Was everything we needed. Would recommend and stay again.

This condo was the perfect home base in the Mill Valley/Sausalito area, for sure. Near enough to town to be there in minutes, yet at the top of the hill to provide a quiet retreat to watch the sun rise and set. A myriad of beautiful hiking trails were accessible literally just out the door. Getting in to and out of the house was super easy and Jesse was easily available, if needed. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and all the amenities were perfectly in place and easy to use (wifi, TV, etc.). I would definitely stay here again when in the area!

I was staying at Marie and Jessie's studio for a 6 week business trip to San Francisco. It is close enough to the city -beautiful 45 - 60 minute bike ride- and far away enough to have a quiet townie feel. And if you like to clear your mind there are plenty of trails for cycling and hiking just around the corner. Both hosts were incredibly helpful to make my stay a great experience. The studio is spacious for two with a fully fitted kitchen, great bed and wonderful view. If you don't have a car at your disposal like me you can still get around pretty well on a bicycle, public transport or Uber. Prepare for it though, it is a bit remote and there's a steep road leading to the house. Was a bit daunting in the beginning but you'll learn to like it.
