About This Listing
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.
Stay at Suki's Mountain was perfect for us : amazing view, nice walking trails all around, close to everything and, most of all, Abby's kindness. We hope to come back.
This was my first booking through Airbnb and it was the best. Suki's Mountain Retreat is an awesome place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing stay. Abby was a great host and accommodated our last minute request for a super late checkin at 10:30 PM. She was happy to welcome us and show around the place even at that time. We felt right at home. Abby have us tips on the interesting places to see nearby and guided us with what stores are nearby and where we can find what. The place was neat and had everything we needed. Every room has beautiful photographs and paintings which have so much of story in them. Only in the morning we saw the amazing hill side view the place offers. The place is perfect for people who want to visit the Muir woods or even for someone who wants to just sit outside reading a novel all day and enjoy the view. We had a great time staying there for the weekend. For anyone visiting for the first time in the night, the last 100 mts of the drive has couple of narrow pieces but nothing worrying.
Suki’s Mountain Retreat is incredibly picturesque. It has large towering trees in the backyard, and a breathtaking overlook of the bay. It's impossible not to relax here! Abby was super accommodating about answering all of our questions and shared great tips for visiting local gems.
