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.
