About this listing
Modern, light-filled bedroom with private full bath in our airy house on the hill in Mill Valley's Almonte area, ~5 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. We're located on a quiet street and enjoy views of Mt. Tamalpais and the town below from our expansive raised deck. It's a short walk down the hill to catch a bus to SF, and ~1.5miles to the shops of downtown Mill Valley. Easy access to the MV-Sausalito bike path. We're also near to a stop for the Marin Airporter (a direct shuttle to/from SFO airport). We have an off-street parking spot available if you'll be arriving by car.
The room is best for 1 or 2 adults. It is furnished with a comfortable queen-sized bed, high quality linens, and down pillows/comforter. Limited closet space is available for hanging items. The en suite bathroom has a deep soaking tub with jets for relaxing, or a shower option. The bedroom & bathroom are both wired for sound, so enjoy your choice of radio stations or bring your ipod/iphone to plug in. We have a reliable, high-speed wireless network and enjoy good cell phone reception throughout our home.
If you're a cyclist (road or mountain), hiker, or runner there are excellent options right from our house and we have plenty of maps - enjoy nearby Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, Marin Headlands, or Mt. Tamalpais. A visit to Pt. Reyes makes for a nice afternoon drive or scenic bike ride (~30 miles each way through the farmlands of West Marin). If you're more interested in the sights of the city, it's a scenic trip via the Sausalito ferry, an easy connection via bus, or a short drive to the Golden Gate Bridge. We're also within easy reach of the Napa/Sonoma wine region by car (very limited public transit in that direction). If you aren't in the mood to explore, then curl up with a book in front of our cozy gas fireplace or in one of the nooks in our terraced hillside yard.
If you are not familiar with Mill Valley, it is easiest to arrive by daylight. Our streets are winding, hilly, and narrow and some visitors find them challenging to navigate at night.
** Please note that to keep some flexibility for ourselves & visiting family/friends, we do not accept reservation requests for the distant future. We usually open up the calendar for the coming 2-3 months only. If you're considering a stay beyond that period, check back within that time-frame for availability **
We live with a quiet, calm & friendly dog and a 3-legged cat. Please be respectful of animals (and careful not to leave doors open!), and best for guests without allergies.
NO SMOKING INDOORS OR OUT.
You are welcome to enjoy our living areas during your stay including the living/dining room, deck, patio, and gardens. We are happy to share space in the fridge for your restaurant leftovers and snacks. Coffee and tea are always available. We provide an informal breakfast for guests - we typically leave out a selection of cereal, granola, yogurt etc on workdays. We often make some type of baked good on our days off, depending on our weekend schedule.
