Great location to be able to zip into San Francisco in about 20 minutes with minimal traffic. Explore Muir Woods and Stinson Beach area off of scenic Route 1. The National park, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), starts at the top of the street and extends all the way to the Coast, with great hiking trails and expansive views of the Bay Area. Enjoy hanging out in downtown Mill Valley, about a 10 minute drive, to the Depot Bookstore Cafe, Pete's Coffee, or at any one of a number of great restaurants. Sausalito is just 1 exit away and there is easy access to the bike path. The charming bayside town of Tiburon is also nearby - a 12 minute drive. Sonoma and Napa are about an hour North on Route 101.
2 Whole Food Markets are conveniently located as well.
Friendly resident kitty (Betty) needs to be fed and watered as part of the deal...:-)
No parties or loud noises. Please be mindful of neighbors. Be careful backing out of my driveway.
Interaction with Guests
Will be there to greet them if I can and give advice about the area.
Quiet neighborhood. Great Valley & Bay views. Hiking trails start at the top of the street. Moderate climate due to close proximity to the Ocean. Often in the 70s when it's in the upper 90s inland.
No public transit nearby. Downtown Mill Valley too far to walk to. A car would be essential.
Other Things to Note
Garbage collection at 6 AM Friday mornings.
No smoking or additional pets.
The place was great! Quiet, clean, and beautiful. Within walking distance to several great leisurely hiking trails. We bought a bunch of food from the nearby whole foods, bbqed some great meals, read a ton of books on the lovely deck in the sun, and went on some relaxing walks.
I would definitely recommend both this wonderful home/location and the host, Charles! My family spent 3 nights in Charles' lovely home. It was perfect for this trip to Northern California. Not only did we have space to relax when we were not sight seeing, we also had gorgeous views from the deck to enjoy while unwinding! The location was also exactly what we needed for our plans, which included seeing Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Point Reyes, Sausalito, and San Francisco. Charles was very helpful with suggestions for hikes and restaurants that were nearby. Of course, I couldn't forget to mention what my son will not stop talking about - Betty. We were fortunate enough during our stay to have Betty hang out with us whenever we were on the deck. Other reviews mentioned Betty not being around/seen during their stay. However, she stuck around with us, probably because we were willing to give her some space. We loved our stay in Charles' home!
The neighborhood was just wonderful. As cozy as the pictures. The location was so amazing...close to Muir Woods and tons of hiking trails which is what we wanted. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Roads were tricky but figured it all out quickly.
The location was perfect for the race and Betty the cat warmed up to me and let me pet her. Great views from the porch and friendly neighbors.
Charles was an excellent host. He met us early on our check in date with a nice bottle of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed the kitchen and cooked a nice Thanksgiving dinner for 6. The upstairs was cozy, warm and the view spectacular!
We enjoyed our stay at Chuck's home. He is extremely accommodating and friendly. And his home is very cozy and comfortable.The views of the hillside, bay and bridges are breathtaking. So beautiful. It was definitely a treat to stay here. Thank you Chuck!
