The studio was perfect for what I was looking for. It's in a beautiful neighborhood and super close to the downtown area. It was only a five minute walk to every restaurant and shop. The studio was clean and met every need. Thank you Lynn for letting me stay here I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Mill Valley, I had a wonderful time here and would love to return someday.

Place is large considering it's a one bedroom. Clean and comfy. There's cable tv for entertainment. Some smell with the towels and some noise since it's a unit of 3 (as stated in listing) Pleasant stay!

We loved how close all of the dining and shops were. Also, getting to some really good hiking was only 30-45 minutes away at Mt. Tam. Highly recommend this place.

Nice quiet neighborhood in Mill Valley. Owner provided very easy check-in instructions and got back to us within a day when we needed something. Unit is a mother-in-law style apartment below the owner's residence, and has a lockable access door to the upstairs unit from inside, but visitor access is via a private door on the side of the house. If you're a late sleeper, it's worth noting that you can hear activity from upstairs pretty plainly, which includes footsteps, voices, etc. Also, because the interior access door is near the front door of the house, you will hear whenever people come and go from upstairs. There is a sink and mini-fridge inside one of the closets, as well as a futon mattress in another closet that can sleep kids or a third guest. Plenty of street parking around also. Owners were very friendly, though we only talked on the phone and online. Overall a hassle-free experience to stay in Mill Valley.

We made a last minute decision to stay in Mill Valley and appreciate that the hosts were able to accommodate us. There was a minor issue with the key not being in the lock box, but that may have been because we were so last minute with our booking. The location is very central. It is walking distance to a nice downtown with shops and restaurants. The hosts included a helpful list of their favorite places and from that we found our favorite sandwich place. You have to try the specialty sandwiches from Mill Valley Grocery. We bought these sandwiches to bring on our hike one day and they were so good we had to get it again the next day for our trip to Muir Woods. The hosts fully disclose that there is noise from their tenants with children in the morning and after school on weekdays. We did notice the noise in the morning, but after that we were out and about most of the day. In summary, this is a good, clean place to stay with a convenient central location for your adventures in Marin County.

This spot is in a GREAT location in Mill Valley. Ideal if you're planning on being out and about all day/night and want to take advantage of the restaurants/shops in Mill Valley and hiking on Dipsea!

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.
