About This Listing
I have a small but very bright 1 BR apartment just steps from the shops of downtown Mill Valley, the redwoods of Old Mill Park, and the Dipsea stairs.
Great views of Mt. Tam and a short walk distance to everything Mill Valley has to offer including world-class hiking and mountain biking along with coffee, shops, and restaurants. I have a super comfy couch and an equally comfy, queen-size air mattress. I strive to provide you with privacy, but I live above a 3-car garage (no cars), so you are getting a cozy, convenient and lovely space. My view makes you feel like you are in the trees, even though you are practically downtown.
Easy access to the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, and Mt. Tamalpais State Park by car. Catch the bike path to Sausalito or Tiburon for a scenic ferry ride into SF, or drive 10 miles to to the Golden Gate Bridge.
Your sleeping accommodation is the couch (please note that it is NOT a pull-out couch) in my living room, which is super comfy, or a very nice queen-size air mattress. Shared bathroom. Access to kitchen. Secure storage for your bike and gear.
Laundry facilities on site. Garage for bikes and gear.
Interaction with Guests
I am often away, and when I'm here, I'm in and out- Happy to visit if I'm not working on my computer.
Redwood trees are everywhere. Lots of good restaurants and live music. Dipsea steps are two blocks away as is the famous Sweetwater Music Hall, the 142 Throckmorton theater, coffee shops, restaurants, and of course, Redwood trees.
Public transit is ok. Feel free to ask me about how to get around, but note that I know very little about buses! From SFO, take the Marin Airporter Bus. It's $20 and brings you to a bus stop at the edge of Mill Valley where you can catch a cab.
Smoking allowed outdoors only. No shoes inside, please. Make yourself at home!
Jacqueline's place was beyond perfect for my needs. The description was very accurate as well. Her communication was strong before I had arrived, and eased any concerns I might have had. She had some sensible easy to follow instructions.
My only regret was that I did not get to meet her in person. Perhaps next time!
JZ was a wonderful host. Everything was exactly as listed and very clean. The location is ideal - 2 minutes from the Dipsea Trail and 1 minute from downtown Mill Valley.
Once again I had the pleasure of staying at Jaqueline's comfortable and extremely well located pad in Mill Valley. Particularly appreciated were Jacqueline's attention to details which made me feel very welcome.
This was my 2nd time staying on Jaqueline's couch. The couch was just as comfortable as the 1st time, the view just as beautiful, the location just as practical, and Jacqueline just as friendly and prepared! A pleasure staying here.
Jacqueline went out of her way to make me feel welcome, and I had a beautifully restful night in her haven in the midst of Mill Valley. It made for a great weekend and I look forward to the next time I can stay here.
Jacqueline was welcoming from before I arrived, she got in touch before I left home to let me know what the weather was going to be like, so I could prepare for threatened rain. Jacqueline was considerate, thoughtful, well organised - an ideal host. Right down to letting me select from a range of pillows for my bed. In the morning I was leaving to hike a few miles down to the coast, and Jacqueline re-arranged her Saturday morning hike group to accompany me the first part of my trip, and made sure I was on the right path. She even took my luggage later that morning in her car to the place I was going to, so that I did not have to hike with a heavy pack. Jacqueline is a special person.
Jacqueline's house is a delight. Tasteful, cosy, very clean and well organised but also very homely. Very close to the Depot and the centre of the town. Walk around the town with Jacqueline and you'll be stopping to meet locals with her.
A stay at Jacqueline's is immersion in the special place that is Mill Valley
