About This Listing
Peaceful home nestled on a hill with deer, lots of trees, and the valley. Enjoy hiking at your doorstep, or go touring on bike. Easy access to Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. Multilevel home with stairs. Fresh breakfast baking included.
Our special hill house may feel like it is worlds away with all the deer and trees, but a 30 minute (oftentimes less!) drive south finds you in downtown San Francisco! Or perhaps you'd rather take in Northern California's beautiful wine country only an hour (oftentimes less!) north of here! It is a big and relaxed house on three levels with character, and older country kitchen, and A LOT of stairs.
Guests will have access to their room, private bathroom in same hallway, family room, and kitchen. Hot Tub is available for use with prior notice. Have a family? Inquire about options!
Interaction with Guests
We love visitors and are always happy to engage in conversation, help with directions or things to do, but will also respect your privacy.
We love that our neighborhood is quiet and filled with deer, birds, and trees. We love that we can go hiking from our doorstep, or take a 2 mile leisurely stroll to downtown Mill Valley, or 1 mile to Whole Foods. We are on a hill, so any walk will end in uphill!
So close to so much! And if you like hiking, it is only an 45 minute - 1 hour hike to Muir Woods.
The #4 Golden Gate Transit bus will take you straight to SF's financial district. The bus stop is about a mile walk from the house. The Stagecoach will take you to beautiful Stinson Beach, up and over Mt. Tam. Car is recommended but not required. Bikes available for use with 24 hour notice.
Other Things to Note
Fabulous hiking in Marin Headlands and Mt. Tam, both accessible from the house or within a short drive. Bike path will take you straight to the town of Sausalito, but it is an uphill bike ride home.
No smoking or drugs. Other than that, we are reasonably relaxed. Please respect the privacy of the lower level and top level, both of which are not open to guests.
Mary Ann and Chris were awesome hosts. They made me feel right at home the moment I came. They showed me around the house and let me use the kitchen and the main living areas as if it were my own. It was perfect because I had my own room and bathroom in a separate wing of the house, so I was able to chill out alone at the end of the day which was perfect because I was attending an intensive course so I was little fried at the end of the day. I would love to stay with them if I happen to be in Mill Valley, and I truly enjoyed my 20 minute walk every morning down into town.
Thanks again for being so warm and hospitable.
This was one of the best Airbnb acommodation we have ever stayed at. Mary Ann and Chris are genuinely warm and friendly hosts. They made us feel welcome and relaxed and also helped us out with some urgent practical issues. Their house is beautiful and the room we were staying in quiet, private and the bed super comfortable. We also loved to get acquainted with their friendly cat and dog. The surroundings are magical, and basically you don´t want to leave! We warmly recommend this to anyone visiting Mill Valley.
Mary Ann was simply the best host. Very welcoming and helpful. Their home is in a fantastic location with a beautiful and relaxing walk into town. Lots of great hiking nearby too. Home is comfortable and they spoiled me with kindness!
Mary Ann, we had such a nice time. You were very hospitable, you shared your home and family as though we were longtime friends. We enjoyed very much the breakfast you made for us each morning, the freedom you gave us to make a cup of tea at will,the offer of a glass of wine. You were always available to chat but gave us our privacy as well. We also enjoyed the local tidbits and recommendations. It was just the trip we were looking to have. A trip with nothing but rest from our busy lives. Your and your home were just the ticket. Hopefully we will be able to come again and meet Chris!
Wonderful stay in Mill Valley - great location, friendly hosts, delicious breakfast! Room was perfect for a weekend escape to Marin County! Many thanks to Mary Ann and Chris for the warm welcome, the excellent hiking recommendations, and the restaurant advice!
Absoultely perfect. Mary Ann and Chris did their utmost to make me feel at home and were sensitive and generous hosts. Also their place is lovely - warm, well looked after, tidy and very pretty. Amazing at the price too. I'll definitely be back!
