Alessandra was very informative and personable in her correspondence before our arrival. She was out of the country when we arrived, but her partner was there and gave us his contact information. The apartment was really great. We only had a few issues: the plumbing wasn't working very well, there were dirty dishes and utensils in the cabinets/drawers and the clean dishes were still in the dishwasher, and we had trouble figuring out how to open/close the french doors to the deck and how to work the coffee/espresso maker (there weren't instructions on those in the manual). Fortunately, Alessandra's boyfriend did show us how to work the doors to the deck, but it was a little complicated, so we just didn't go out there. Aside from that, the apartment was really nice. Everything was as pictured. Great furnishings and appliances and the wifi worked really well. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, which we loved. The Whole Foods was small but very close and had virtually everything you'd need for a short stay. I'd definitely stay in Mill Valley again.
My host was amazing. Alot of contact in advance of my arrival to insure that I would find the location with no problem. They also made sure that one of them would be there to greet us. The space was even better then the photos. The apartment felt brand new, the furnishings were fantastic and very comfortable. The deck off of the apartment was a lovely addition. I would stay there again and could live there forever !
I stayed at this lovely apartment for a month and early enjoyed it. It was a home away from home. Cosy and comfortable in every way; comfortable bed, good quality sheets and towels, well stocked kitchen, brilliant loo, nice lighting and furniture throughout and kind and considerate hosts.
My partner and I so enjoyed staying at this beautiful apartment in Mill Valley. Alessandra was very responsive from the first moment we contacted her, she answered all of our questions and was very welcoming even before we had arrived. We arrived just at sunset and were greeted by twinkling fairy lights leading us down the stairs into Alessandra's beautiful space.
As soon as we walked in we were taken by the spaciousness, beauty and elegant design of the space, the amazing views from the balcony and the very thoughtful and personal touches Alessandra had left for us. The space is very comfortable, clean, well organized and had everything we needed. The bed was incredibly comfortable (which was perfect as we were on a business trip and really needed our rest!), the kitchen is well designed with all the things we needed to prepare our own meals. The apartment is under the main house, but we very rarely heard people above us, and it was not an issue at all.
The entire layout, art work and all the love and attention to detail that has been put into this space made us feel very at home.
The location was perfect for us, its private and quiet but only minutes to Mill Valley, restaurants, cafes, organic food stores and easy to get into San Fran. While there is no off street parking we were able to find a park on the road directly across from the apartment entrance.
While Alessandra was away during our stay and we didn't get to meet her, she was very responsive and helpful to any questions we had.
This is a special space and we greatly look forward to returning again. We would highly recommend staying here. Thanks Alessandra, we loved it!
My wife and I recently moved to the Bay Area, but we've always wanted to visit Muir Woods. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best for exploring, but our stay at the apartment was fantastic. The place looks exactly as it does in the pictures! Alessandra was wonderful throughout the visit and I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking into Mill Valley.
Here are some of the pictures we took at Muir Woods (10 minutes from the apartment) in case you're looking into visiting Mill Valley for that reason: (website hidden).
Our stay at Alessandra and Dan’s apartment exceeded all our expectations.
The apartment is fresh and new, clean and comfortable as well as very practical. Everything you need to keep a household/home away from home.
Magnificent views while enjoying breakfast on the sunny deck, and wild deer munching up the neighbor’s plants just outside our door. The smell of the giant eucalyptus trees. All amazing!
The small details and items they provided made us feel welcome and comfortable from the very first moment. You will absolutely know the difference!
That they are such nice, warm and helpful people added further, and made our stay very memorable. We plan to stay again – if you do not book it before us!
Super cute/chic apartment! Balcony had an amazing view, kitchen was well-stocked & convenient, and every amenity I would have wanted was provided. Alessandra was very helpful and flexible in scheduling when to arrive and leave and went above and beyond in making sure our stay was comfortable! Highly recommend.
This apartment is perfect in every way. It's spacious, it's private, quiet, clean, tasteful, and beautiful. Alessandra couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. The space is beautifully decorated, from the paint colors to the super soft sheets and towels, everything was immaculate. The kitchen is huge and well appointed, I cooked every night and loved it. It's also super conveniently located near the Dipsea trailhead and within running distance to Muir Woods. It was such a treat to stay here, I would recommend it to anyone and will try to stay here next time I'm in Mill Valley. Thanks for such a great stay Alessandra!
I had a wonderful time at this beautiful little gem on the mountain. The apartment was very clean, bright and cheery. Alessandra has fabulous taste which shines through to the decor. There were many unexpected surprises such as the kitchen was stocked with breakfast options, a hair dryer, iron, full length mirror, all which made my stay feel very much like home.
The location of the house is perfect. Just a short drive from town, walkable if you're up for the hills, it was very easy to pop into Mill Valley. Not that you would want to leave the spectacular views and quiet tranquil deck.
I hope to stay here again soon!
Very comfortable stay, clean and spacious. Alessandra made the experience so much more enjoyable. Great views from balcony too!
