A beautiful well equipped large room with fridge and microwave. Comfy bed large outdoor deck literally in the treetops. Would go back in a heartbeat. The host was very nice and we had total privacy.

Joan has a magical place. Amazing views of the mountain and the surrounding trees. The place was clean and bright. Great snacks, shampoos, soaps, etc. Amazing deck with a sauna. Highly recommended!

Perfectly lovely room with a small kitchenette, bath; private deck and sauna. Joan thoughtfully provides a selection of welcoming snacks along with coffee, tea and strawberries! All this was unexpected and very much appreciated. As other's have noted, the place is tricky to find but Joan provides good directions. It's up some very steep, narrow roads and you need to squeeze in at the side of the driveway to allow access. However, all this is a small price to pay for the beautiful surroundings and well-maintained accommodation. The room is exceptionally quiet and private. You really do feel like you have the entire forest all to yourself. The property is just over a mile from the centre of Mill Valley but from the deck, with a glass of wine in your hand, you feel like a world away from anyone.

Very nice place to be! Away from the busy city but still close enough. Close to Mill Valley Downtown and the beaches and Muir Woods. Quiet, comfortable bed, terrasse no sun but in the middle of the Redwoods! I would stay there again!

Wonderful spot, very private and secluded in beautiful wooded area near top of hillside. Although we didn't use the sauna, one is available as part of guest house. Loved sitting with a cup of tea (provided as part of kitchenette along with snacks) on a beautiful deck with a view of the surrounding woods. Highly recommend!

Joan's place blew our minds when we arrived. After a quite windy road up the mountainside , we arrived with a view beyond our expectations. The scent of the forest permeated the studio. The deck was the best part. I had morning tea out there every day and we shared wine out there every night. Joan had everything in the studio - quick snacks - teas - french pressed coffee - a fridge - a microwave - and the best, a water boiler! It felt so good to be surrounded by the red woods and hear the birds singing. The nature took my breath away. What a romantic getaway or perfect place for even an inspiring solo stay. The pictures do not do it justice. The bed/sheets/pillows were the most comfortable i've ever experienced. It was hard to leave that bed! The location was great too. We explored Saucilito, san francisco, and muir woods while staying here, and it never took us too long to commute. Also, in the town of Mill Valley , we found easy breakfast every day, and a great pizza place one night. It was august, but to enjoy that deck, i definitely needed to bundle up in the evening , so bring a nice, thick sweater. I could go on and on. We will definitely be back.

Joan User ProfileJoan is a superhost.

I am an adventurer, and and an entrepreneur. Mother of two grown daughters and three grandchildren.

Still Light Pond came to be in a dream...redwoods, a pond, a meadow, a old red farmhouse, exquisite light. I went online and imagined where that kind of property could be...and indeed it existed and was for sale, and I bought it without questioning why! I feel privileged to be her steward this last decade.

The location feels like Italy with the soft and 'forever' light. The natural pond, seasonal creek, redwood grove, large flat meadow, little hiking trails, orchard etc. all on just 4 acres feels like a thousand! The setting and the finishes to the house I was lucky enough to do with the addition of the master suite have indeed made it a mini estate.
