Our retreat is located a quick 10 minute drive from San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge (GGB). This historical vacation destination for escaping “city life” has become the chosen land. The journey across the GGB itself is memorable. Views of SF Bay, the Pacific Ocean and rugged coast line are lovely. And they are ever changing with the tides, winds, fog, sunshine & shadows of the iconic towers.
Per one of our guests:
“Cyndi was a great host and her house is the perfect situation if you are looking for access to Mill Valley's fantastic landscape, beaches, town, etc. Perfectly comfortable, well appointed, and an ideal house to rent if you have a few people in your group. Very much plan to rent again when I have to be in the area.'
With Acacia Walnut hardwood flooring, gas fireplace, and back deck, the split level 750sf space offers an alluring corporate or vacation retreat. Peaceful, calming, quiet allows you to think…. The efficiency kitchen is great outdoor lovers.
Beautiful hillside environment. Walk or bike to Tennessee Valley Beach and Muir Beach.
10 min to San Francisco. Quick and easy access to 101, avoiding the traffic of northern Marin. A minute away from Highway 1 on your way to Muir Beach, Stinson Beach and the rugged coast.
