I am a clothing designer and a design consultant, originally from England but now happily settled here in Mill Valley.
No smoking inside the house or in the garden.
Braeda's lower level bedroom and gardens was perfect for us and very beautiful. Loved staying there. Very quiet, yet just a short walk to the main square in Mill Valley with restaurants and bars.
This was our first Airbnb experience, and it exceeded my expectations! Braeda was an excellent host and gave us great suggestions on where to eat, all within walking distance. The room felt spacious and we enjoyed private use of the backyard patio. Braeda left a map to the quickest way to Muir Woods, just 10-15 minutes away. If you get to Muir Woods before 8 am, you will have no problem parking and can enjoy the quietness of this amazing place.
Braeda's apartment was exactly as she and all of her reviewers described it. My husband and I are relocating from Chicago to San Francisco for work, and this apartment was exactly what we needed to come back to after a few stressful days of house hunting. This apartment is in a great location and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Braeda was also extremely sweet and offered up some helpful advice regarding our search for a place to call home. Thanks for a wonderful experience, Braeda!
Wonderful apt in a great location. Breda was a lovely hostess making sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay.
We absolutely loved staying at this home. It was clean, comfy, and close to everything. Communication was easy, and check-in was a breeze.
The only down side was when on the night of my wedding, three of our friends walked us back around 11pm, and came inside to say their goodbyes. After about five minutes, the door was unlocked without knocking and the host told us all in a very unfriendly manner to go to bed. I tried to apologize if we were being too loud. Disregarding my apology, and the fact that I still had my wedding dress on, she was very rude, and made us feel very unwelcome. If there were rules about noise level or especially thin walls that we should have been made aware of, we were never informed of them, and the host herself didn't abide by them, seeing as we were kept up even later than that the night before because of loud noises in her living space upstairs.
Braeda greeted us once we arrived and showed us around our private area of the building. She was very kind and welcoming, but wanted to make sure we had complete privacy, which we definitely did.
The room was quiet, peaceful and a close walk to downtown Mill Valley.
Would definitely recommend for other couples or single travelers staying in the Mill Valley, Tiburon area.
A great deal!
