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.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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!

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

Bus to San Francisco is 2 blocks away

  • The listing is accurate, and the home was clean, well decorated, comfortable and convenient as described. San Francisco, downtown Sausalito, Muir woods and Mt. Tam all easily accessible by car from here. Drea was easy to communicate with, even though we were unable to meet face to face. This was a very quick and simple transaction. Would love to stay here again.

    HI Becky, Actually the coffee machine and coffee for guests is actually on the kitchen window sill. I will leave a little note on it to make it more obvious. :)

  • Drea's home was cozy, close to the highway, clean, and comfortable. We had our own private master bedroom and bathroom upstairs, which we really enjoyed. Although we didn't make use of it, Drea had left instructions for using her Netflix account, too. Drea wasn't there when we stayed, but we did meet Natra, her housemate, and she was extremely friendly and personable and was able to give us dinner recommendations in the area. This is a great location if you want to check out Muir Woods, which is what we did the following morning.

  • Drea's home was everything that I expected from the information given thru Airbnb. Great location, easy access to the Freeway and San Francisco. Wonderful town of Mill Valley was wonderfully walkable. Plenty of places to eat. Ms. Lester herself, was very kind, a great communicator and a lovely host. Great house, Nice room-mate (with 2 very cute little pups!). Comfortable and quiet are good words to use about her residence. Nicely furnished and very tidy. Would certainly consider staying there again.

  • Drea's home was beautiful and in an accessible but cozy location. It was great to stay in such a beautiful and comfortable home with the ability to drive 10 min to Muir woods and 20 min to Muir beach! She was very gracious and easy-going and had a wonderful guest info sheet in the room answering any questions I had. I highly recommend this host, location, and room!

    Hi Alex, I accidently left the wrong review on your profile but have contacted Airbnb to get it straightened out. You were a lovely guest and welcome back anytime! :)

  • Drea's place is wonderful. We ate on the deck. Slept in a comfortable and quiet bedroom. Our host had clearly taken the time to set up the room. Fresh towels, flowers, etc. The organization of a hotel with the relaxation of a home. Thank you!

    Ahh yes, that door. I actually just bought some WD-40 yesterday and was planning on fixing it. Sorry about that!

  • I couldn't have chosen a lovelier home. Pitched beamed ceilings, a wonderful kitchen, a dream bed, and plenty of areas to read, relax, and recharge.

    Drea has a wonderful aesthetic. While I didn't spend too much time in the house because I only had the afternoon in Mill Valley and spend most of it at Muir Woods, I can tell that she'll make a wonderful host. She is thoughtful (it's all in the details -- like the carafe of water on the bedside table), but isn't imposing.

    All I can say is I can't wait to go back!

  • Drea's place was a perfect pitstop on my business trip. Her home is beautiful and the accommodations are very clean, comfortable (great bed!) and convenient. It was also very easy to park my rental car. Great restaurants and shops within a walk or short drive distance. Very good deal!!

  • Good communication with the host, including directions, parking and any extra questions. The private room and bath were accessed by going up a short flight of stairs and through the large living room. The family kitchen was also off the living room with a delightful deck overlooking a back garden area. The living room and kitchen are "shared" with the host, but they were rarely visible during our stay and basically the whole upper level could be used by the guest. The rooms were clean and well-equiped. There was good cross-air ventilation in the bedroom (nice on hot days) and the bed super comfortable. There was some street noise during the day, but this was not apparent during the night. The location was good and met our needs. Overall, a very good accommodation.

    Hi Polly, Thank you for your feedback. I updated the information sheet with additional instructions. The TV was set to broadcast tv not HDMI which is why it wasn't working for you. I never use broadcast so I don't know how it got like that and I apologize for the confusion!

  • Staying in Mill Valley for a night at Drea's was a pleasure. She was very good at communicating promptly and keeping us in the loop of any info/changes. The listing is exactly as described. Room was very cozy with private bath. We didn't have time to use the backyard but it looked lovely.
