About this listing

Our newly re-furnished In-law/au pair unit is separate from the main house, contains a double bed, private bathroom with shower and has a separate kitchenette with fridge and microwave.

Overlooking Richardson Bay, our house is a 5 minute drive from Mill Valley downtown giving easy access to Muir Woods, San Francisco and Sausalito by public transit.

The space

Our space is a good sized double rrom with Queen bed, desk and sofa with a joining bathroom with shower (no tub). The basic kitchenette has a fridge, microwave and washing up sink (but no stove). There is also a table with a couple of stools in kitchenette. The unit also has its own separate entrance with a lockbox for the key enabling guests to come and go as you please.

There is lounge seating at the back of the house which guests are welcome to use during the summer when we aren't around.

We will be happy to answer any questions you have about the area but are happy to leave you to your own devices.

Our house is 2 miles from Tennesse Valley trailhead, one of the main trailheads in the area, with great hiking and mountain biking in the Marin Headlands.

We are also a minute away from a dedicated bike path which ties into a huge cycle path network with paths to Sausalito, Tiburon, Larkspur and beyond.

Our location is very convenient for getting into San Francisco by car or bus (we are 1 minute from a bus route) as well as exploring Muir Woods, Stinson Beach and Marin.

Please note that the kitchenette is deliberately very basic enabling guest to prepare breakfast vs cook evening meals.

David's place was a sanctuary. I was in a situation where a remarkable career opportunity came about and I was needed to start immediately. This place was not only a very convenient commute into the city but also had all the essentials in proximity to you; great restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, great coffee spots. David was very responsive and respectful of your privacy. The unit was very clean and had great light coming in the morning. All in all I would highly recommend this place.

David was a great host and went out of his way to accommodate me. The location was great for walking as well. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a cute place, great morning sun, lovely setting. The bunk beds in the adjoining room would make it a super value for a couple with kids. Great access to walking trails, Mill Valley, SF, Muir Woods, etc.

The apartment was private, clean and the perfect lacation if you want the proximity but not the hassle of staying in san francisco. 15 minutes to the GGB, 35 minutes to stinson beach or numerous mt tam hiking trails. Downtown Mill Valley is charming with a number of good restaurants. The nieghborhood is upscale and safe.

Staying here was a breeze. It was clean, quiet and near many great restaurants. David was a host that was unobtrusive. We barely saw him! But he was always communicative and attentive to our needs. The area for city folks is somewhat rustic (we saw deer out in the street twice!) but if you're looking for that kind of quiet getaway, this is your room.

Great place! The space was perfect for our short trip to Sausilito. It was easily accessible from San Fran by our rental car. The description provided was exactly how the "in-law" space was when we arrived. The hosts were kind enough to leave the door open encase we arrived super late so we didn't have to struggle with the lock box. Everything was very neat and clean. The beds were comfy and bathroom very roomy. All in all we would certainly recommend this space. We were a 10 min drive (or less) from Sausilito and about 35-40 mins from San Fran. Don't hesitate to book if you have the opportunity!!

I am English but am lucky enough to live in Mill Valley with my wife, Nancy, having moved here from London in May 2008. We both love the outdoor life in Marin taking advantage of the beautiful scenery to go running, hiking and cycling right from our doorstep.

We both enjoy traveling having visited numerous places in Europe, South East Asia and now the US.
