The Space

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.

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

Redwood trees are everywhere. Lots of good restaurants and live music.

Getting around

Public transit is ok. Feel free to ask me about how to get around, but note that I know very little about buses!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I attended a wedding in Mill Valley over the weekend and Jacqueline's place was the perfect place to stay for a night. It was just a five-minute walk to the venue (The Outdoor Art Club).

    Jacqueline was out of town when I arrived, and she left the key under the doormat for me. The space is a nice size one-bedroom with all the amenities you need! Jacqueline arrived from her travels later that evening and graciously let me stay in the bedroom while she took the living room couch.

    We chatted briefly in the morning - in addition to being a clear and communicative host, she also had a warm and friendly personality. I didn't get a chance to stay around much longer, as the friends I was driving with picked me up fairly early, but I did get a chance to stroll through the redwoods at Old Mill Park (just a 2 minute walk away!) before heading back to San Francisco.

    Mill Valley is a beautiful, quiet town and Jacqueline's space is conveniently located right in the heart of it! I imagine it would also be a good place to base yourself should you want to take advantage of all the outdoors activities available in the area (cycling, hiking, etc).

    Tip: the house number are a bit hard to find, make sure to drive slowly when you're approaching the right area!

  • Jacqueline's place was very comfortable and convenient to lots of great stuff - Throckmorton Theater, Sweetwater, Mill Valley Falls. Parking was relatively easy, too, which was nice since MV traffic can be a bit intense. Jacqueline was a very easy-going and accommodating host, and it was more like visiting an old friend. Looking forward to the next visit!

  • Jacquline was a great host - showed me around the excellent locality and she was very accommodating in terms of the use of the space and suggesting things to do, places to eat etc.
    The mattress in the lounge was very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

    Response from Jacqueline:

    thanks for doing that. i wish air b and b would leave people alone and not pester them for a second review.
    BTW, if by chance you have time, you mentioned that you could refer me to a few massage/etc. therapists here. that might be handy to have.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  • I had a great stay. I'm 5'8" and the couch was perfectly comfortable. Jacqueline was a great host and was very helpful in making sure that I felt welcome and enjoyed my stay. I'd love to come back.

  • Jacqueline's place is very clean and comfortable and although I only slept there one night, I found it as a perfect location for staying in Mill Valley.

  • Great place to stay and Jacqueline is the perfect host. I would definitely.stay at her place again and again and again. Don't shy away from the shared accommodation or the sofa. I slept great and I usually don't sleep well when I'm away from home.. Be well Jacqueline, thank you for all your help and for the wonderful stay in Mill Valley.
