About This Listing
Enjoy everything Marin has to offer right out the front door! Shops, restaurants, downtown, and Mt. Tam hiking all within a short walk. Located on Sycamore Ave, our remodeled and upgraded historic home has all of the modern luxuries.
Enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine under the redwoods on the expansive entertaining deck. Brand new kitchen, upgraded appliances, and gas grill on the back deck for your cooking needs.
I love the details of the small things and really love sharing my cozy and comfortable space with guests from around the world.
This is more of a traditional B&B experience in a home where we live. Guests are welcome to enjoy the shared (but primary use) of the upstair floor including living room, kitchen, back deck and yard, and of course you will have private use of the master bedroom and en suite bath.
Let my home be your home away from home!
Interaction with Guests
I travel often but when I am in town I love hosting and meeting new people!
My historic neighborhood of Tamalpais/Sycamore Park is lined with beautiful Sycamore Trees (I have the oldest in the neighborhood right out front!) The streets are flat and everything is within a short walk from the house.
Bus to San Francisco is 2 blocks away
Other Things to Note
Living in the middle of town has it's advantages (walk to EVERYTHING!) but there is a bit of street noise during the day. I have a white machine for guest use if you are sensitive to noise.
What a beautiful home! Perhaps the most idyllic AirBnB we have stayed in - the back deck was excellent for relaxing after hiking. And in an excellent location to boot. Just 15 minutes to Muir Woods, less than 10 to delicious restaurants and cute shops in downtown Mill Valley and 20-30 to SF across the GG Bridge. Keep up the great work, and thanks!
Drea's place was perfect for us. We came to California from Pennsylvania for a two-week vacation, and this was our first stop. Though our plane landed late in the day (almost 6:00 pm) in San Francisco, we were able nonetheless to pick up our rental car and still get out of the city and to Drea's place in time for a leisurely dinner at a nearby restaurant. The accommodations were ideal--clean and comfortable, quiet and cozy. We wish we had more time to stay and enjoy the inviting deck and peaceful back yard. Drea was a delightful host--helpful and accommodating in every way. Next time we come to northern California, this will be our first stop again.
lovely house very clean and nice decoration
This was a fine room for the night. Drea was kind in accommodating us on very short notice and making sure it could be ready for us and the next guest. The location is good.
I am a frequent AirBnB user and staying in Drea's house was the best AirBnB experience I've had. The house is just beautifully renovated and decorated and has a European/Californian fusion feel. I felt at home!
Drea was great! Unfortunately we were out and about most of the time and didn't actually get to meet her personally, but she was so great to work with via text and email. Her place is very comfortable and homey. The neighborhood was very nice, with a lot to do a block away on Miller Ave, and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend a stay with Drea to anyone traveling to this area. Drea's roommate Natra, (the only one in the home we did meet) informed us that they have lots of guests stay with them, and I think they really know how to work this system very well. I have only good to say about our stay. If we go back to Mill Valley, I'll be checking in here again!
We had a wonderful stay in Mill Valley! The house is very nice, clean and well decorated. We had our private room and bathroom and could use the large kitchen and the very nice patio outside. Drea and her roommate are really nice and welcoming. The location is also perfect, very close to the beautiful Muirwoods forest and to San Francisco by car. A great place to recommend to anyone coming in the area!
