Quiet, careful with our things. You should coordinate timing with our cat sitter so your privacy will be preserved.
The home is "charming" and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the grounds like a Japanese garden with many nooks for relaxing and reading. The sunny deck off the dining room has a large table and was pleasant for lunch or an afternoon glass of wine. The hosts left us a welcoming gift bag and nice selection of toiletries in the remodeled bathrooms. The location was perfect for us. Close to Mill Valley yet secluded and private. We took two walks up a narrow road nearby that climbs to a scenic ridge top. We'd definitely book again.
We had an excellent visit to Mill Valley which was made even better by our stay at Jeff and Ilene's beautiful home. To start with the grounds and yard are nicely and thoughtfully landscaped with mature plantings and very tastefully chosen and placed artwork. Jeff and Ilene's home is beautiful and has a very warm and welcoming feeling. There were 4 people in our party which included my elderly mother, my sister, my partner and myself and there was plenty of room for all of us. We had some special needs of which Jeff and Ilene were very accommodating and for that we are very grateful.
If you are looking to stay in Mill Valley I would highly recommend this home.
Lovely family home in an excellent location. Walking distance to town. Grounds are amazing, like staying in a beautiful park. House is very 'lived in' , clearly a family residence. Owners are lovely and very accommodating.
We spent 4 relaxing days at Jeff and Ilene's beautiful home. The home was exactly as represented and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Mill Valley. This home incorporates many levels of deck and various outdoor relaxing spaces. The 4 of us found this to be an added bonus.
Jeff and Ilene were very thorough in making us feel welcome - providing notes for the local stores/eateries, the surrounding area, and a bottle of champagne to celebrate the start of our vacation.
Mill Valley is just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is only a few minutes from Muir Woods. This location was perfect as we split our time between SF and areas north of the bridge.
I would highly recommend this listing: the home is beautiful and relaxing, the location is fabulous, and Jeff and Ilene were extremely accommodating.
