The Space

Located in the heart of the "Village" and just 10 minutes to San Francisco and Muir Woods! Soaring ceilings with expansive windows, you will love the dramatic light throughout the day. Vintage hardwood floors in the hall/living/dining areas and plush carpet in the bedrooms. Our spacious three bedrooms (1 en suite) sleep 6 comfortably. Enjoy two full-baths including a tub in the master. The "urban" experience is created both by the downtown location that we enjoy and the landmark building in which we occupy. We are a "mixed-use" building that features a women's clothing boutique, beauty-salon, and a one-bedroom apartment (Long-term rental). The house is exceptionally comfortable, convenient, quiet and fun!

Truly the ideal year-round destination location due in part to our temperate climate and proximity to San Francisco, The Wine Country, Lake Tahoe, Silicon Valley, Monterey, Carmel, Muir Woods National Monument, beaches, etc.

The "Top 7 Reasons To Stay With Us":
(1) Vacations; (2) Family or guest holiday visits; (3) Business travel; (4) Extended stays due to re-location or house-hunting; (5) Temporary housing due to home construction, alterations or additions; (6) Close proximity for reception or party preparation at Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club; (7) Close proximity for attending all Mill Valley Festivals and Parades (Film Festival, Art Festival, Little League Baseball Parade, Tam High Homecoming Parade, Memorial Day Parade and more).

Guest Access

Please enjoy the back-yard patio with its comfortable outdoor furniture and party lights. There are two "cruiser" bicycles located behind the ivy-covered fence in the patio. The lock combination is 3434. If you need to adjust the seat height, there is a tool hanging adjacent to the bikes on the wall for such.

Interaction with Guests

I'm available to my guests as needed but I give generous space/privacy. I'm happy to give recommendations and even a little historical perspective to those who ask. I am third generation Mill Valley, raising my children (The fourth generation) in this idyllic town that we are grateful to call home.

The Neighborhood

Restaurants, bookstores, coffee houses, cafes, retail therapy, grocery, theaters, live music, town square and all the best Mill Valley is located within a minute or two from your front door! The downtown is as urban as a place can be that is surrounded by redwood trees, wildlife, (Naturally occurring) parks, streams, creeks, trails and of course Mount Tamalpais. The outdoor adventurer will love the myriad of hiking trails, mountain and road biking routes and the close proximity to both the ocean (Tennessee, Muir, Stinson Beaches) and the Bay for strolling, surfing, kayaking, SUP and pretty much anything to do with water.

Getting Around

Mill Valley's Bus Depot is directly down the street from us, only a one-minute walk. Catch commuter buses to San Francisco or head into picturesque Sausalito. While there, adventure over to Alcatraz or Angel Islands via ferry.

It's an approximate 40-50 minute trip by car to San Francisco International Airport. The Oakland International Airport can be reached in approximately 45-50 minutes.

Other Things to Note

We provide small appliances (Microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc.) a full set of dishes, stemware, cups/glasses, utensils, pots and pans, linens and basic condiments (cooking oils, vinegars, salt/pepper, sugars, baking soda/powder, popcorn, tea, cocoa, flour, ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise). We also include aluminum foil, paper towels/napkins, wax paper, dishwasher/sink/laundry/bath soap and shampoo/conditioner, body lotion, bleach, cleansers, toilet paper, fabric softeners, sponges and kitchen bags.
