Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed here for two weeks and it was so convenient for us!! Our kids live in Mill Valley, and being able to walk over and help with the grandkids was a gift. The bed is very comfortable, and the living room bright and sunny, as pictured, kitchen adequately supplied and the shower fine. We walked into town a number of times down treelined streets, and it's a short walk down to Whole Foods were we could easily get supplies. The neighbors were very friendly, and we hope to come back soon for even a longer stay.

  • We rented David's cottage for my parents who were visiting Mill Valley for three weeks. And it could not have been a better place for them! The location was very convenient and easy to walk to / from downtown, the neighbors were super friendly making them feel right at home, and the hosts were very hospitable and attentive. It was very simply decorated with all of the right amenities, and a nice little outdoor space. Just the perfect size! We will most certainly look to rent this cottage again when my parents plan their next long visit.

  • This is a fabulous place to stay! It is close to many restaurants and to downtown Mill Valley. The outdoor space was great to enjoy meals and the beautiful weather. It is very clean and had everything we needed. We will be back and highly recommend it!

  • My father very much enjoyed his month long stay in this charming cottage. The cottage is very well appointed and spotlessly clean.

    David's contact Janet is very kind and quick to respond to any questions you have through Airbnb/text.

    The property does have a driveway for one car and there is plenty of street parking for visitors.

    There is no cable, but the large flat screen tv in the living room can access Netflix which has a ton of programming.

    The property is convenient to downtown Mill Valley and it's just a quick drive to SF.

    I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage. It's an excellent place for a short or long term stay!

  • David's place looks like the photographs. It is off the beaten path in Mill Valley yet close to everything. His communication was awesome and though I had to cut my trip short, he was very gracious in returning more money than was required under the terms of our agreement. I would highly recommend this owner, location and home.

  • Ideal location and sweet, comfortable cottage. I found the host and nearby hostess to be helpful, attentive, available and gracious.
    I thank them for helping me find a way to rest in the midst of a family move.

  • David's little Mill Valley cottage is the perfect place to stay when exploring Northern Marin. The cottage was clean and the queen bed very comfortable. He even let me have my grand baby with us. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the crisp Fall air. My husband and I are experienced air bnb-ers and we found David and his manager to be EXCEPTIONALLY responsive to all our questions. I highly recommend staying here. A GREAT value.

  • Cute cottage right in the heart of Miill Valley.....walk to Wholefoods or to center village. A couple of fine restaurants, wine shop and a take out food are all within 15 minutes walk time. The accommodations are clean, recently updated and comfortable. David was very responsive to any request we had.

I was born and raised near Chicago, and studied Civil/Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois. I moved to San Francisco in 1985, and worked in the environmental consulting field (primarily in the water resources area) for about 20 years. I currently live outside Sebastopol, CA, and work as a "green builder". I have lived in Mill Valley for most of the last 20 years. I LUV Mill Valley and you will too. A perfect micro climate, right at the foot of Mt. Tam, makes for perfect hiking and biking trails. You'll also enjoy the "casual chic" of Mill Valley, lots of great restaurants, entertainment and shops. My little cottage is ideally located in a charming neighborhood, close to everything and easy access.
