About this listing
Incredible view from wrap around deck.
Incredible sweeping view of the entire east bay, Alcatraz and even the bay bridge.
The entire property is fenced so it is very safe if you are traveling with your furry companion. Yes dogs are welcome, as long as they are well adjusted and extremely friendly. I have an amazingly adorable pug mix named Izzy. She gets along with everybody dog cat or human.
This is a House-mate home, so with that in mind I would like to request that if you are going to want access to cooking in the kitchen, try to let me know before hand.
Our home is located just 10min from the 101. 20min to the city, 30 if there is traffic. 5min from Muir Woods. Stinson Beach 20min. 10min to downtown Mill Valley.
Well behaved dogs, that don't mark there territory inside the house.
Shylene was a very kind and easy going host. Just wanted to share some general observations regarding the space that might be helpful.
Our personal space was very clean and tidy (bedroom + bathroom).
Shared spaces (kitchen, patio) were messy, and in the case of the kitchen, fairly unclean (unfinished plates of food, crumbs everywhere, minor spills, used dishes etc). We like to use the kitchen for a few minutes in the mornings for breakfasts, however this was very unpleasant.
There were a few additional rules regarding room-mates, the extent of which was unclear in the listing. Since one roommate is very sensitive to noise, and another is very solitary (asked us to leave the kitchen while we were in the middle of preparing breakfast so he could wash dishes) we felt more like intruders in the home rather than Airbnb guests. We are by no means loud, or noisemakers but we felt like we needed to use public spaces quickly to avoid getting in anybody's way.
To be clear our stay was generally okay as we didn't spend much time in the house (out early in the mornings, back late evenings). However, if you plan to spend a bit more time in the place, the above are some points to consider.
What a gorgeous, bright, open space to pause and relax! The upstairs loft is full of windows and light, the side porch is a lovely bonus. The very real bed is pretty dang comfy, too.
The drive into the city is wonderfully simple--I had to dash back and forth a couple of times for a family gathering and it was easy peasy. Shylene and her housemates are super sweet.
The pictures do not do justice for not only the view but the bedroom as well. It is fully furnished and incredibly clean.
We also needed a kitchen to cook for a bit and Shy gave us access to all of her essentials. Her housemate even helped by giving me some much needed pointers with my shrimp scampi!
Great experience overall, thanks Shy!
Shylene's place was lovely. I'd love to go back and spend more time on the porch that overlooks the bay. Everything was clean and well-kept. We were asked to keep it to a whisper after 10:30pm, which was fine with us, just want to let folks know. It was a great location, very close to Muir Woods, Mt. Tam, and not far to Stinson Beach. Would definitely come back!
Shylene greeted us with her two adorable dogs upon our arrival. The drive up to the home is steep, but the driveway is nice and level. Our room was on the second floor and it was nice, quiet & spacious. We toured the surroundings towns for the day and enjoyed dinner at a great restaurant Shylene recommended. Both the home and town were wonderful and I'd recommend this stay to others!
My now fiance Janette and I had a wonderful time staying with Shylene.
The house itself was beautiful, and located in a great location if in the area to visit Mt. Tam, Muir Woods, the Marin Headlands, or any of the beaches at the coast.
Shylene, her doggies, and her housemates were friendly and fun to talk to.
Thanks so much for making our engagement weekend that much more memorable.
Shylene is a fabulous hostess! Everything was all we expected and more- beautiful private room, gorgeous views, peaceful vibe. Would highly recommend.
