Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais. Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.

Historical Mill Valley has a unique village charm as well as its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement. Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre recently revived, although in existence since 1915. Re-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall right down town.

Mill Valley is surrounded by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Sea Shore. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.

Sally was the perfect host - willing to help in any way. The house in Mill Valley is beautifully decorated and a perfect bolthole for our family of 5 on our trip to the Bay Area. A short drive from San Francisco and a stroll from Mill Valley.

I had a lovely stay at Sally's home. It was quite magical. The home is so comfortable and beautiful! Sally and Michael responded right away to any of my questions and calls. They are a very lovely couple and amazing hosts! I stayed at Sally's home for my wedding week and it was just perfect!! The home is private and secluded but I was able to walk right into town. I was only a few minutes walking-distance-away from a wonderful Pilates studio, coffee shop, book store, market and many great restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place to stay in the lovely Mill Valley and I am looking forward to visiting again! Best, Nicole

This really is a charming place to stay in a great location in beautiful Mill Valley, and it was well equipped with everything we needed. Ideal for exploring all the local attractions and perfect for walking to the local shops and restaurants. Access could be difficult for the less able but well worth the effort for anyone else. The hosts were very approachable and extremely helpful.

Sally's place is cozy and convenient to restaurants and shopping. We liked that there were 2 full baths. Kitchen is well equipped. The washer and dryer were full-sized. Very good value for the money

If you're looking for the quintessential Marin Valley airbnb, look no further. Everything from ease of communication, ease of check-in/check-out, amenities, comfort, and location all in one listing. Sally's home is perfect for a quiet get away with 3 very comfortable bedrooms, living room, 2 baths, full kitchen and washer/dryer. Did I mention the amazing deck to relax on with beautiful garden and relaxing water feature? Yea, it's all there. I was working in the city for the week and there is the #4 bus that picks you up about 500ft away which was easy, clean and so convenient. I wanted to be in Mill Valley and Sally's airbnb is walking distance to everything in town. Great restaurants, Mill Valley Market if you'd rather bring food back to prepare and amazing coffee at Equator. I did take one day off of work and a quick Uber ride took us to Muir Woods for an amazing 8 mile hike. (Book your Uber ride back ahead of time though because cell reception is sketchy up Mt. Tam). Once back, there is a nice deep claw foot tub to soak your tired muscles. I highly recommend a stay here. I know I'll be back. It was hard to leave!
