Our stay was lovely. The space was clean, easy to find and had all of the "oops, I forgot..." essentials. The location is wonderful-easy to drive or walk to shops, restaurants, grocery, and tourist (and non-tourist) destinations.
Description was very accurate. This is an amazing town and none of us wanted to leave. Wonderful place to stay, thank you! Highly recommended.
The studio was very cozy and perfect for our family of 4 and our two dogs. It was very clean, easy to find and just about everything we needed was available for us.
Lynn was quick to respond to our rental request and available once we checked in to answer any questions. Even though the studio is in a building with other residents we felt we had the place to ourselves.
Great location to downtown Mill Valley and parks for the kids. We plan to recommend this spot for family coming to visit for a place to stay.
Lynn's studio apartment was perfect for our short stay in Mill Valley. Just a few minutes was from the center of town, the location is ideal and the apartment was clean and well kept when we checked in. Particularly if you are attending a wedding at the Outdoor Art Club, I highly, highly recommend this location.
We stayed in this studio with our 2 boys and found it perfectly cozy. The futon mattress pulls out from the closet and is perfect for kids. Although we did not use the kitchenette, it was a nice feature (toaster, fridge, coffee maker and dishes). We enjoyed walking downtown Mill Valley for dinner and to the Depot for coffee in the morning. The location is excellent, as it is located in a quaint neighborhood and is super convenient for Muir Woods and Muir Beach (a must for your trip) and San Francisco. My kids also appreciated having Netflix access after a big day in San Fran. The bathroom was clean and even had a few essentials such as shampoo and hair dryer. There were only two large towels available, so bring towels for extra guests. Thanks Lynn! We loved our time in your studio!
Lynn's place is in a very nice location, with easy parking nearby. The room is big enough to accommodate 4 people, with 2 sleeping on the futon. The kitchen and bathroom are nicely furnished -many nice organic/bio products in the toilet. Definitely recommended!
The studio apartment was perfect! It is conveniently located; it is a 5 minute walk to the depot area of Mill Valley. The apartment is clean, lots of natural light, and spacious. The queen sized bed was comfortable. The bathroom is stocked with shampoo, conditioner, soap, hairdryer, etc. There is kitchen stuff like utensils, mini-fridge, etc. The netflix was an added bonus. It was very easy to communicate with Lynn. She also provided easy check-in instructions and she provided suggestions for restaurants, hikes, groceries, laundry, etc. in the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Mill Valley!

About the Host, Lynn
We have been living in the bay area for the past 15 years, in San Francisco for 14 of them so please ask us for insider tips if you plan to visit SF. We got married in Mill Valley, adopted our dog in Mill Valley, and are now back living here with 2 kids. I do marketing consulting for natural food and beverage companies and love to play tennis and hike. My husband is a software engineer who loves kite surfing and playing the drums. We have two boys who love to swim, and ride around with us on our bikes.
