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.
We had a great time in Mill Valley. It was very convenient to get into the city on the commuter route 4. Even free parking for the bus. Mary Ann and Chris were very gracious hosts- we really felt at home. Even let us watch a big game on TV when it wasn't something they would have watched if we were not there. We are going to miss that place at the top of a really big hill...
Mary Ann and Chris were just fantastic. Both of them are warm and giving people and they seem to share not only their home, but a bit of themselves with each person staying there. The house itself is beautiful, and the room is in a private hallway that gave me the freedom to come and go without feeling like I was bothering anyone. Every morning, Mary Ann had freshly baked bread ready and often would be there herself to chat with me about what my day would look like. Both Chris and she were great about recommending places in the area, too, which was a much-welcome added bonus. I absolutely intend on staying with them the next time I'm in the area.
What a lovely Airbnb experience. The house is beautifully nestled in the California hills at the end of a twisty turny road. The bedroom and bath couldn't have been more comfortable or private. We loved the continental breakfast every morning complete with home made bread. Maryanne and Chris are gracious and accommodating hosts. I was there on business and needed a few tools and the generously lent them to me for the duration of our stay.
Vi hade en härlig vistelse hos Mary Anne och Chris. Väldigt trevliga och hjälpsamma. Underbara människor. Mary Anne lagade en god frukost varje morgon till oss. Fantastiska omgivningar o ett trevligt hus. Rent och fint. Tar ca 35 min med bil till downtown. Vi rekommenderar verkligen detta boende och kommer definitivt återvända dit när vi kommer till San Francisco nästa gång.

We had such a great experience. The location of Mary Ann and Chris's place was perfect for what we wanted to do. Mary Ann and Chris were extremely nice and helpful with suggestions for places around the city and providing the hot spots around town! They were very easy going and we loved the fresh breakfast and coffee every morning! Definitely recommend staying here!
If you want a 5* residence nearby San Francisco you have to stay with Mary Ann and Chris. What a great place and such lovely hosts. We can truly recommend this place to every Airbnb traveller being around San Francisco by car.
We had a great stay! Mary Ann and Chris were very welcoming, gave us great tips and made us a terrific breakfast. Our room and bathroom were clean and just like in the pictures. Plus, the house is really beautiful and is in a great location. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Mary Ann And Chris
Hi, we are Mary Ann and Chris! We live in beautiful Mill Valley, California, and love to hike, run, read, eat and enjoy music. The Golden Gate Bridge is our passage to the fabulous city of San Francisco, which is just a stone's throw away across the Bay. We are nearly an empty nesters and look forward to more travel in the future. Love all food, all cultures, all flora and fauna.
We are very easy low-maintenance travelers, love meeting people and love welcoming people into our own home.
