About this listing
Escape from the bustle and enjoy a few days nestled in the redwoods. Your private treetop single bedroom has breathtaking views and sounds from the creek below. Just a 5min walk from Cascade Falls, and right across the street from Tenderfoot trail!
Our home is a redwood oasis.
Your room is the most breathtaking in the house - nothing but windows with views out to green treetops. There's a creek below the house you can hear from the room.
You'll be sharing the house with Rachel and I. We love hosting. Rachel is a yoga teacher / singer / doula / health coach and I'm a doc filmmaker / musician / meditation instructor.
The house is one of the oldest in Mill Valley - and used to be a weekend getaway for Marilyn Monroe and Joe Demaggio!
It's a very old house so it has it's quirks - but space is very important to us so we've loved it up a lot.
Your bed is a very comfortable full futon (we've slept on it many times!).
You're free to make use of the fully stocked kitchen (vitamix! juicer!), living room with TV + stereo, the beautiful front patio / table, curl up in front of our gas fireplace, or enjoy the yurt in our backyard (when it's unoccupied).
Ben works from home - so the downstairs office is off limits.
We also have a beautiful upright piano & guitars for the musically inclined.
One note - cell phone service is a bit spotty from the house. You're free to use Wifi to make (website hidden) calls as needed, or, if you'd like, we can temporarily add your cellphone to a small microcell tower we use to boost service.
Your bathroom / shower is downstairs, and it's a bit quaint / small - but works like a charm.
Interaction with Guests
Both Rachel and I work from home, so at times we me disappear into work mode (especially from 9-5pm week days) but generally we love to connect!
Our location couldn't be more perfect. Deep in the redwoods, yet minutes from downtown Mill Valley. Some of the favorite hiking and biking trails of Marin are literally minutes walk away; Muir Beach / Stinson Beach / Mt Tam are a 20-30 minute drive.
You'll love it, we promise.
Unfortunately, public transit is scarce from the house, so it's best if you have your own car.
Parking is available down below the house by the creek.
There's extreme fire danger (we're in the woods!) especially given the drought - so we have a strict no smoking / no candle policy. Also, we tend to treat our home like a temple of sorts - so we ask to keep shoes outside, be mindful of noise, etc.
Also, Rachel and I are vegetarian (no meat or fish, we do eat cheese / eggs), so ask that, if possible, you refrain from storing or cooking meat in the house.
