This comfortable 1BR is a rare find with inspiring views and close proximity to downtown/restaurants/stores. Lots of space for 2 (plus sleeper couch), full kitchen, laundry & beautiful outdoor space. Bus stops at the corner; 15min to San Francisco.

The space
Our unit, which we've named Bloomers, is a quaint little private apartment with a full kitchen and a queen bed. It is within two blocks (or less) of two grocery stores (incl. Whole Foods), several restaurants, coffee shops, a theater and lots more. It is a 15-minute walk from the quaint shops and restaurants of downtown Mill Valley and even spectacular hiking. On our street corner is a bus stop for transit to San Francisco, or, if you have a car, we are about a 15-minute drive from the city.

It is unusual to have this proximity AND a view as most homes/units are situated deeper into the nooks and crannies of our area. So while many will have views, very few will have a view within walking distance of so many conveniences. All this said, it's important to keep in mind that we are on the corner of a main thoroughfare into downtown; Miller Avenue. While we are surrounded by greenery and in general, it is peaceful, we will get road noise...sirens, garbage trucks, an occasional Harley, loud truck/car, or honking. I suppose it's the price we pay for the proximity to the conveniences we enjoy...but, if you are looking for absolute silence, this may not be your place.

Also, perhaps of interest to music fans is the fact that Mike Bloomfield, a famous blues guitarist, lived in our home in the 70s. Originally, he created the lower unit (that is 'Bloomers,' his nickname) as a recording studio, but never completed it. He used to play with Bob Dylan (locals recall listening to Mike work with Dylan on songs from Like a Rolling Stone in our house), the Butterfield Blues Band and more. Recently, a documentary was released about his life/accomplishments and then Rolling Stone wrote this article 1/2014.

Guest access
The apartment is self-contained and has even been a full-time residence for our family and au pairs in the past. Coffee, a selection of teas and electric kettle, makings for oatmeal, cream, a half dozen eggs and even wine are stocked for guest arrivals. There is one parking space available for guests.

Other things to note
We renovated this apartment specifically for short-term rentals. It's extremely clean with all new, or gently-used furniture. It's comfortable and nicely appointed with modern fixtures.

People who have stayed have at Bloomers have been surprised at the outdoor beauty, and the decks and then are thrilled when they actually see the inside of the apartment. It's very relaxing and is a great place for a little getaway while also being convenient.

Location

Mill Valley, California, United States

We love that we have everything so close.

Whole Foods, Super Duper (a locals favorite burger joint), frozen yogurt and Puerto Rican restaurant...are within a block of our house and are regular haunts of ours. There is space between the houses here with lots of natural beauty. People who have been in our house say they feel like they are in a tree house. It feels like that to me, too.

I love that we can access anything we need while also being able to walk out our door and down the road onto a path that will lead us deep into open land. Or, if we are just relaxing in the house, we appreciate the wildlife that simply passes by our windows...hummingbirds, deer and fox are commonly seen floating around.

My husband, Ron, and I have lived in Mill Valley (and in this house) for 7 years. We have two children, Finn (11) and Lucy (8). I have a small Public Relations firm of my own, Potion Public Relations, and I work just down the street in a small office. Ron works for Alexa Internet, located in San Francisco's financial district. We are both passionate travelers, but have admittedly traveled less since our kids were born. In the past, we've been to Southeast Asia, Australia, Cuba, parts of Europe and domestic destinations. Some of our family is back east, so it isn't unusual for us to visit Delaware or New York on an annual basis. Music is a big interest of ours (which is a big reason we love Mill Valley -- if you haven't seen our profile and the information regarding Mike Bloomfield, check it out!). We got married in New Orleans and if we get the chance, make it out to see our favorite bands in San Francisco or here, at the famous Sweetwater Lounge. Overall, we're a mellow family who appreciates the little things.

During your stay
Because our home is upstairs, we are 'in the vicinity,' but are very respectful of our guest's privacy. We only interact with people as much as they'd prefer.

This also makes it easy to quickly help our guests should they need anything.
