No smoking inside the house or in the garden.
Staying in Braeda's cozy apt was such a nice break for me and my boyfriend! There was zero hassle in arrival and no question of the quality of our accommodations. We arrived late and were jet lagged after a long day of travel, so we quickly fell asleep upon arrival. In the morning we woke up to see the true beauty of the place: an inviting (seemingly private) garden of roses, fruit trees, humming birds, shrubs, and the sweetest little table and chairs for morning coffee. Speaking of which, the kitchenette came stocked with complimentary coffee and tea, a Keurig, and dishes. The apt is private and comfortable. It is convenient because it is only a short walk to the Mill Valley shops and restaurants. Breada was helpful, responsive, and respectful. She keeps her apt clean, up-to-date, and stocked with helpful travel necessities (the organic lavender soap in the shower was such a nice touch!). We truly enjoyed the accommodations and the surroundings. High fives and applause all around!
We spent a long week in the downstairs cottage of Braeda's home. Everything was neat and worked very well. The kitchen appliances were top notch.The outside garden was great to wake up to and added a special serenity to our stay. Braeda was a most respectful and a very helpful host. She provided helpful hints on hikes and how to get to the airport when the major route was going to be under construction. And I used to live in the area so her insight was a great benefit for even someone who knew the area. Bottom line we really enjoyed our stay.
We have just had wonderful 3 night stay in Mill Valley with Braeda. One of our favourite BNB stays to date. Braeda was very helpful and welcoming. Communication was easy and she was on hand for hints n tips. The apartment is a little gem. Cosy, perfect location a minute from the town centre. We really loved it here.
Braeda contacted us in advance with a great description of the facility and the local ambiance of ill Valley then also greeted us upon arrival and made us very comfortable with everything.
Great experience, very easy, would highly recommend it.
The place was as advertised. Very quaint, very comfortable bed and great location within Mill Valley. 2 minute walk to the town. Braeda introduced herself and was most helpful with any questions. Nice to have a mini kitchen available. We highly recommend this place.
If going to San Francisco consider the Larkspur Ferry. Close and plenty of parking.
We loved our two-night stay in the Garden Apartment. Braeda was a gracious host and the apartment was just as described--tranquil and in a wonderful location for accessing the amenities of downtown Mill Valley.
