We love that we have a hiking path right outside our door. We love the visiting wildlife - deer, turkey, birds, quail. We love the tranquility of our location - our home is located on a private road with just 2 other neighbors.
We are within walking distance to the Golden Gate bus system which travels to the city Monday-Friday. We are a 10 minute drive away from the Larkspur or the Sausalito ferry. We are an hour north of the San Francisco airport. We have parking spaces to accommodate 3 vehicles. There is additional street parking.

A beautiful, clean home in a quiet but convenient area in Mill Valley. Kim is an excellent, well organized host who provided everything we needed for a pleasant stay.
It was a lovely stay.
A unique home with a priceless view, in a beautiful town.
We loved going around exploring. Mill Valley has a handful of charming shops, a quaint little theatre (where we watched Walk In The Moonlight starting Emma Stone & Collin Firth), a yoga studio, and the best Safeway and Whole Foods branches.
There were clear touches of an artist around the house.
EXCELLENT appliances; everything you'd need, at its best.
However, the sheets were a little mill-dewy, and there wasn't enough seating in the living room for more than two adults.
It must be mentioned, that Kim was super friendly and available to answer our calls at anytime.
