The Space

3 brdm, 2 ba family home

We have a three bedroom, two bath rustic modern home in picturesque Mill Valley, on the border of Golden Gate Recreation Area. Our home is truly a private retreat, with every window looking out into a densely forested gulch. Our living room has cathedral ceilings, open beams, and floor to ceiling windows. You can see no other homes from the deck. At night it is perfectly silent, aside from the sounds of coyotes, owls, and a seasonal creek.

The house sleeps five adults, plus children. The layout:

-- Master bedroom: One king bed and private wooded deck.

-- Guest (or kids) bedroom: One twin bed, a crib, and a small private deck.

-- Office (or additional guest room): Pullout couch (queen-sized), plus a desk.

There are dozens of hiking trails within walking distance. Muir Beach, Green Gulch Zen Center are both about a 3 mile hike away.

You would want a rental car if staying here. Our home is about 5 min to downtown Mill Valley, 10 min to the Golden Gate Bridge, 15 min to the Marina/Inner Richmond/Presidio neighborhoods in SF and 25 min to downtown SF.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Beautiful apartment and perfect hosts! My family and me loved our stay at the apartment and will love to come back!

  • Lovely house - feels remote and wild although it is only a few minutes from town and not much further to San Francisco. My teenagers loved hanging out on the deck. Laura was helpful with all my questions and helped guide me to nearby trails - a highlight of the location.

  • Wow. The pictures somehow do not do this place justice. What an incredible house. So many windows and such a pretty view that my girlfriend and I kept remarking about how it feels like a treehouse. Amazingly private yet just 5-10 minutes away from downtown Mill Valley. Also, Laura was extremely nice and accommodating. I definitely want to stay here again in the future, and recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet sanctuary a stones throw away from the city.

  • This was our first airbnb stay, and we are impressed. This home is beautiful and the hosts were wonderful. Everything was as promised, and Laura left us a welcoming bottle of wine and fresh flowers on the counter. We definitely hope to return someday!

  • Beautiful home nestled in the hills. We had such a great time enjoying the setting and gorgeous views. The owners were the perfect hosts, even giving us outing suggestions and restaurant recommendations that were perfect for us. We will definitely visit again. Can't recommend highly enough.

  • Secluded, peaceful, and lovely. The owner has made the process smooth and was easily available if needed. It was so homey and welcoming. Great for families and couples. We are grateful for our stay.

    Thank you!

  • Beautiful and comfortable home and gorgeous, quiet surroundings. Easy drive to San Francisco but it feels like the middle of nowhere- looking out from the back deck all you see is untouched hillside. Great hikes nearby (Miwok Trail just up the hill, Mt Tam and Muir Woods a short drive away). Hosts made themselves available in case of concerns (but we had none) and checked in via email.

  • Great space to get away while being close to the city. Tranquil and baby friendly. Laura even made sure our forgotten items got home!

    September 2012
  • Laura's home is a serene retreat on the side of the mountain and hugged by trees : - just as advertised and much more. Its super friendly for kids and toddlers as well. We really enjoyed our stay in her adobe.
