About this listing
Our space is a good size double with Queen bed and a separate children's bunk room connected by a full bathroom with shower (no tub).
There is no TV but there is free guest WiFi
Our guests have separate access to the unit so can come and go as you please but will not have access to the main house.
There is lounge seating at the back of the house which guests are welcome to use
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, 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.
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.
We often get asked if you can cook or if there is a microwave. We have delibarately not provided one as there is nowhere to wash dishes, sit down and eat etc. Afriad this is just a bedroom and a bathroom with a kds bunk room off the bathroom
We were very happy with our stay in Mill Valley. The appartment was as described, very clean with an opening to a beautiful garden. The owners, whom we didn't get a chance to see were very accomodating and followed up with us by airbnb to make sure that everything was ok and we didn't miss anything. They provided some good info on things to do in and around Mill Valley (which is a beautiful town by the way) as well as some good info on the local restaurants. Initially we planned on staying in San Francisco but were very happy with the change of plans. The drive accross the golden gate was beautiful, short and very scenic.
It was definitely worth it.
Mill Valley is awesome and the proximity to Sausalito very convenient. Quiet and comfortable rooms. Everything was clean, nothing to complain about. Really enjoyed my stay here, sadly did not meet the hosts. Would recommend again anytime.
I had a great holiday in Mill Valley at David's place. The separate unit is very clean, modern, private and spacious. Is like having your own new apartment in such amazing place with beautiful landscapes and yet very close to San Francisco. David and Nancy are such nice, respectful and very considerate people. They provided coffee and tea, plenty of towels, hair dryer, a fan for heating in case of need and very usefull guidance for exploring the area. This is the perfect place to stay in the San Francisco Bay Area. Highly recommended!
David was a fantastic host and the unit was perfect - so affordable, comfortable and convenient! Had a few extra requests (trail run advice, late checkout, etc) and David was so nice to accommodate everything. Highly highly recommended.
Very lovely stay. Quiet, private room just what we wanted. Only sorry we didn't get to meet you! Many thanks, David.
Very nice hosts with a wonderful separate apartment below their house. It's beautifully designed, very silent, comfortable and the perfect starting point to discover Marin county. I had a very relaxing time with lots of sleep there and would certainly book it again
Our Host, David, was very nice and helpful with anything needed, attentive even during busy holidays and amidst his own travel schedule. David fixed problems we encountered with sink draining, and worked on wifi as well—the wifi probably will be fine when next Air BnB-er moves in, as he arranged for professional help on that.
The room is in a beautiful garden, and inside two rooms and bath were immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with nice artwork and bedding, a comfortable queen-size bed, night stands, a kettle and tea/coffee items, and a chair. The bathroom was stocked with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and other personal care items. The second bedroom would be great for kids--it has a bunkbed, chest of drawers, and chair.
There was no desk/chair should someone need to do work while there.
There is a full step up/down to bathroom from main bedroom. Anyone with accessibility issues needs to know about that.
The “Instant” hot water took 5 minutes of running to heat up--we suggested host get that checked. Again, he is responsive when help needed and very congenial, so this will probably be attended to.
We recommend this property, especially for people traveling with children for whom that extra bunk room might be useful. It is quite similar in accommodations to a hotel room, but with the extra room that can sleep 2 kids.
About the Host, David
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.
