About this listing
Please email me before sending a reservation request so I can tell you if the apartment is available.
Please note: a 12% tax has to be collected on the nightly rate to comply with local regulations. Details are in the space description on this page.
The apartment is completely private, with its own entrance and staircase going downhill from the street (28 steps).
It has one bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed, a walk-in closet and views from the south-facing window.
There is a full-size washer/dryer in the unit, an ironing board and iron.
The living-room/kitchen area has french doors opening onto a 7ft x 27ft deck with similar south-facing views as the bedroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave/hood, a professional stainless steel range, an integrated dishwasher and a stainless steel fridge/freezer.
Other small appliances, such as a toaster, a sandwich press, rice cooker, blender etc. are provided.
The bathroom has a large shower, a Toto (Japanese-style) washlet and a hairdryer.
It's a very welcoming and comfortable space and it is designed to accommodate longer stays.
I strive for green living and avoid harsh cleaning agents whenever there is a good alternative.
Street parking. To make life easier for everyone in the street I only allow one guest car. If you have two, please let me know before you want to book and I will let you know if I can accommodate you.
The house has a view over Homestead Valley and is close to Whole Foods and downtown Mill Valley. Public paths and steps to downtown are nearby.
Wireless high speed internet is included. A HDTV and Blu Ray/DVD player with access to Netflix, Pandora and other services is included, as well as a collection of DVD's available for use at no charge (we can have Netflix deliver DVD's on request too). I am happy to add other TV services or channels for longer stays on request.
Please let me know if I can answer any questions regarding the house or the area.
Viewing can be arranged easily, since I work from home.
Additional cleaning will be arranged every 2 weeks for longer stays and will be added to the total at time of reservation.
To comply with local regulations there will be an additional 12% tax applied to the nightly rate for stays under 30 days. This will be collected at check-in and in cash, to avoid additional Airbnb fees.
Interaction with Guests
I let guests decide how much interaction to have with me. I am available and happy to socialize but I respect the guests' need for privacy if they prefer to be on their own.
Other Things to Note
Disclaimer: We have security cameras outside the two front doors. Please let us know if you don't want the cameras to be on (before you make a reservation).
Strictly no smoking, no heavy drinking and no drugs.
I live on a narrow road in a quiet neighborhood. I am in close proximity to our neighbors and I expect low noise levels and absolutely no parties in the apartment.
It only accommodates two adults (one queen bed) and no children. Sleeping on the sofa is not allowed but an inflatable mattress will be provided and extra sheets (for an additional charge) for a second adult who will not share the same bed.
Since parking space is an issue on this street we can only allow one car and it will be parked in the street. No guarantee that the space will be right in front of the house.
I am originally from Milan, Italy and I lived for many years in London before moving to the US. I enjoy traveling whenever I can, meeting guests from other countries and learning more about other cultures. I look forward to meeting you!
