Private and large, lush hide-away with outdoor space in Mill Valley! The room sleeps two, all amenities, separate entrance, private bathroom and easy access to the hot tub, patio and wrap-around deck outside. We are empty nesters and love company!
Room includes a Full-Size bed, microwave, small fridge and coffee maker. The house is fully fenced in and we love welcoming your dog to play with our dog Colby (a black lab mix.) The house is set-back from the street so it feels very private and very lush! We are on a running creek and have a great deck to sit-out and enjoy your time by the Bay!
Guests are welcome to use the barbeque if they'd like. We also have two other bedrooms upstairs so if you have children we might also be able to welcome your whole family.
Interaction with Guests
We would love to meet you and welcome you to Mill Valley, and suggest fun things to do and special places to go.
We have great access to Muir Woods and Muir Beach, Mt. Tamalpais' hiking and biking trails, famed Sausalito and sophisticated Mill Valley. We are also less than 10 minutes to the 101 Freeway and only 20 minutes to downtown SF (without traffic).
Very convenient to park your rental car on the street. Or take the Marin Airporter from the airport to the Manzanita stop and then get a quick 3-4 minute cab ride to our house.
Other Things to Note
Our guests have all said that they are coming back!!
No tobacco please.
Carol & Frank's home was beautiful! The room was nicely equipped with almost everything you would need & they were very accommodating hosts. Very nice people & their big black lab dog was really a total sweetheart. Their backyard was gorgeous with a wrap around desk & a creek to listen to. Very relaxing & beautiful place. Also, this might sound silly, but when I would turn on the hot water tap in the shower, there was instant hot water. Is sure makes a difference in the chilly early morning or when you want to relax in the shower before bed. Nice place. Only thing I would mention is that the room is ajoininging their kitchen so if they are in the kitchen, and talking, you can hear it in the room. Also, you can hear them upstrairs walking around over the room, but that wasn't that big of a deal to us. Carol & Frank are very lovely hosts.
I absolutely loved the Mill Valley Perfect Retreat as this was my first time using airbnb. Due to my work schedule, I booked it last minute for the holidays and am glad I did. It's an easy to find great location, approximate to Sausalito and San Francisco. Frank and Colby (their dog) were very welcoming the first night. Carol was delightful as we discussed our lives and children...so friendly. Amenities were as described and the retreat is very private. This is my go-to spot for all future visits to the area. Thanks Carol & Frank...and Colby!
We had such a great stay at Carol and Franks home. Unfortunately due to our crazy schedule we didn't get to meet our hosts but hopefully we will be able to return and meet them!
Carol was very on top of communication and super accommodating. Don't hesitate to stay here if you're looking for a beautiful location that is very close to all that San Fran and the Marin Headlands has to offer!
This was our second time staying at the Mill Valley Perfect Retreat. Carol and Frank warmly welcomed us to their beautiful home. We enjoyed the relaxing hot tub, lush garden with a mountain view, their friendly dog Colby, and the special Sunday brunch treat. We had fun sharing humorous stories with Carol and Frank. What a treat to return to their home to relax after our Mill Valley hikes and San Francisco adventures. We can't wait to return!!!
My hosts were away for this trip. I have stayed w Carol and Frank in the past and they offer a lovely private entrance w hot tub and private bath. I like to be able to come in and out (at all hours!) knowing I not disturbing anyone. I found a great walk out the door and up the hill in their great neighborhood.
Carol, Frank & Colby (the dog) welcomed us with overwhelming hospitality.
They provided the perfect combination of interesting conversation and privacy. We were both introduced to neighbors and also provided our own bottle of wine.
The separate entrance contributed to our comfort of early mornings or late evenings out.
We thoroughly enjoyed our very comfortable accommodations as well as a moment in the hot tub.
Mill Valley and the surrounding Marin neighborhoods have much on offer. Carol & Frank are willing to help navigate as much or as little as needed based on the guests' comfort levels.
Although we had our own car, buses appeared to be close by and we found the ferries quite convenient.
With its easy commute into San Francisco, it is hard to imagine wanting to stay anywhere else on return.

I love sharing our home with visitors as we miss having our kids home and love the sound of laughter in the house.
