The Space

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 – away. Mt. 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.
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 .

Guest Access

Guests are welcome to explore the property.

The Neighborhood

This is a very quiet neighborhood, a lot of the people who live up here have lived up here for a long time and get along very well and are very helpful if you bump into them on the street and have questions.

Getting Around

Not necessary but advisable that you have a car up here. Unless you are up for doing some hiking to get down into town. It is about a 20 minute walk from the house to get to downtown Mill Valley where there are shops and restaurants. Longer getting back as it is all uphill. I have had people stay without a car, but they're looking for the ability to really get away and enjoy the seclusion of being up on the mountain here.
