Nestled among Mount Tamalpais' majestic old-growth redwoods is a chalet Hansel and Gretel would feel at home in..and a fully equipped apartment with a separate entry and private patio. The view stretches across San Francisco Bay to the Oakland hills and beyond. The size of the property, 2.5 acres, ensures peace and quiet. Downtown San Francisco is 25 minutes – and a million miles – (website hidden). Tam's hiking, running and biking trails are at hand. Mill Valley via the Dipsea Steps is an easy 20 minute walk (and a challenging uphill return). The location is very central for tourist destinations, and very secluded and private for those needing rest and relaxation.
The legacy of the original proprietor, photographer and author Suki Hill, who lived in the home since 1972, will be carried on by her daughter, Abigail Hill and her stalwart of stalwarts, Charles Keppel.
Sadly, Suki passed away June 14, 2014.
The rental is the lower floor of a wonderful, characterful Mill Valley home, built in the late 1930's.There is a sunny patio outside the apartment with spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and overlooking rose and dahlia gardens. A short stroll down driveway leads to another "secret" garden with a small pavilion for quiet reflection or yoga. The home is also close to Muir Woods and the beautiful Hwy.1 coast. One can drive to the wine country in an hour .
Guests will have a private entrance and designated parking space.
Well-behaved pets allowed, smoking on patio only. There are two full-sized (or double) beds and a sofa bed (twin-sized) for an additional guest @$25/night.
The apartment was a perfect fit for our family of four! the little ones enjoyed breakfast overlooking the garden and had a great time exploring the pathways by the house. The property is so quiet and peaceful. The house is close to mill valley and it's restaurants, Mt. Tam, Muir Woods and a ton of walking paths in the neighborhood!
It was a so so so beautiful experience in the apartment. You can have a good view since the house is on the top of the mountain. I like the garden, flowers,pets.everything there. What's more, it's very convenient for cooking and there is a food market nearby. Abi is very nice and thanks for his tourguides.
If you are looking for Safe and quiet...this is your place! I love the setting, the cool breeze and Abi was a very welcoming host.
Thank you for everything.
We had a nice stay here. The view is great and the proximity to Muir Woods is a real plus.
We have spent a wonderful and restful time here. The apartment is nice, with everything to cook and that was so good to have the breakfast on the terrasse with such a gorgeous view on San Francisco Bay. The kids had a lot of fun playing outside in the garden and with the dogs. There are beautiful beach and mountains just nearby and for who love nature and calm, this is the perfect place.
Nous avons passé un agréable et reposant séjour ici .. L'appartement est sympathique, avec tout ce qu’il faut pour pour cuisiner. Nous avons tout particulièrement apprécié le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse avec une vue magnifique sur la baie de San Francisco. Les enfants se sont beaucoup amuse dans le jardin et avec les chiens. Il y a de belles plages à proximité et les montagnes pour randonner. Pour ceux qui aiment la nature et le calme, c’est l'endroit rêvé.
Thank you Abigail for your warm welcome. We hope we will come back for other vacation.
Thank you for an enjoyable and relaxing weekend. We had lots of fun exploring the hiking trails and taking in the view from the porch. Also, thank you for your local knowledge of some good spots to explore.
Abby was very welcoming, and the apartment was perfect for a weekend getaway. The view is amazing, and there are some great hikes that are easy to get to from the house. We will definitely try to stay here Shaun in the future.
