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!

The space

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 sharing our space with the Airbnb community. 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!).

Guest access

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

Rachel and I have variable work schedules and are sometimes traveling, so we may or may not be around for your stay. We both work from home, so if we are here, we are more than happy to share best local spots, etc. but just a heads up that we may be doing the work thing!

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.

Lovely bedroom in the woods, amazing way of spending a weekend sleeping with just the whitenoise of the creek that flows literally a few feet from the house. The bedroom itself is tiny but clean and well kept. The house overall could be kept a bit cleaner, specially the kitchen was quite a mess one day and the bathroom could be improved. Rachel and Ben were lovely hosts. Checkin/checkout and communications were extremely easy.

The room is perched right above a creek and settled amongst the redwoods so you sleep with the sounds and smells of the forest. It was rejuvenating, even for a one night stay. Special thanks to our hosts Ben and Rachel for welcoming us into their home.

Coming from the city, this place was a great place to relax and get away from the busy life. I enjoyed being next to the creeks and having easy to access hikes around the area. Ben and Rachel were very nice and we had access to everything around the apartment (i.e. kitchen to cook). The room was also very peaceful albeit a little smaller than expected, but it was a wonderful place. I loved how they had a guitar, comic books, and lovely decoration.
