Garden Apartment in Charming Downtown Mill Valley
Location location! An exquisite tranquil garden apt with it's own street entrance in the very heart of downtown Mill Valley, just a couple of blocks from the square, Throckmorton Theatre, Sweetwater Music venue, the Sequoia movie theatre, galleries, restaurants, cafes and an excellent library in a nearby redwood grove.

French doors open onto my lovingly designed English garden, original features remind you that this is one of the older houses in town, yet tasteful furnishing and décor give away my profession as a designer of interiors as well as clothes. The apt. has its own private bathroom, which was completely remodeled two years ago. The house consists of two apartments, and I live in the one above, and am glad to advise on great restaurants, entertainment, and hiking and biking trails just steps from your front door. Public transport is available to San Francisco and all points in Marin County from the town square.

The apartment has an alcove kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and electric kettle.

Internet access and television.

Non-smokers only.

No dogs.

Off the street parking is available in front of the house.

$125 per night with a two night minimum
$75 cleaning fee
$200 deposit refundable upon departure

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.

I am a clothing designer and a design consultant, originally from England but now happily settled here in Mill Valley.

Her apartment was perfect for our needs; great location a short walk from downtown Mill Valley with a nice food Market and restaurants. Street parking was easily available. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It has a unique wonderful character; Braeda (who lives upstairs) said the house is one of the older ones in the area, built in 1895. The bed was extremely comfortable, and there is a nice walk in closet. The kitchen area lacks a sink or stove...but the bathroom sink (in a beautifully updated bathroom) is near enough to serve...and the refrigerator/microwave/toaster/utensils were more than enough for our needs. There is not a separate living room area...but there are two comfortable armchairs with a table in between at the foot of the bed..and there is a television in an antique armoir that Braeda brought with her from Enland. (The armoir, not the TV). The AMAZING outside garden more than made up for the lack of a separate living room. We had coffee/breakfast outside every morning and watched the hummingbirds taking nectar from the beautiful hibiscus tree just over our heads. Braeda was a superb host, and fun to get to know. She is an artist...we loved one of her unique paintings on the wall so much that we bought one to take home. We would certainly stay here again.

A great place to stay. Walk to the Town square, lots of great restaurants, close to Mt Tam hiking and biking and the bay. Braeda was great and her place comfortable and welcoming.

Braeda's place was a wonderful place to stay while visiting Mill Valley. Parking was easy, the accommodations were comfortable, the garden was lovely and downtown was a short stroll away. Couldn't have asked for a better set up.

Braeda was an excellent host - great communication - and the place was very comfortable and in a convenient location. We had breakfast at Sunnyside Kitchen, went hiking in Muir Woods, had a grand time at the Marin County fair and ate dinner at the Seafood Peddler. The next day we explored San Francisco, including Alcatraz. Braeda comfy, private place was the perfect homebase.

It's private and quiet; just what we had been looking for as my guest and I had been traveling in from out of town. The neighborhood is beautiful, and Braeda pointed out interesting walks as well as providing ample information about the immediate area. I'm disappointed we couldn't stay longer.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Braeda made us feel at home and the space was very comfortable. We loved the beautiful garden! We got great sleep on the comfy bed. The kitchenette had everything we needed. The location was just perfect - walking distance to everything we needed, and a short drive to great hiking, which is why we came to the area. We would definitely stay here again!

Very nice and comfortable space in a quiet Mill Valley neighborhood. Just a few minutes walk to downtown restaurants and shops. Good wifi and a nice bed. Braeda is always ready to help and easy to communicate with. A real joyful visit.
