Cynthia's place was a fantastic finish to our vacation in California! It's a perfect, sweet cottage that is beautifully decorated - we instantly felt comfortable there! It was fun being able to see the chickens and use the backyard. Cynthia had everything in place, including a notebook filled with things to do, places to go, etc. We highly recommend her cottage!

What a wonderful stay! Cynthia's home is charming (you can't beat chickens) and well equipped. With a car, it was easy to get everywhere we wanted. I look forward to another stay at Cynthia's!

This cottage is outstanding! Close to everything, clean and private. They provided toy for our 15 month old son, he also loved the chickens in the back yard. Highly recommend staying here. We'll be back!

The cottage is beautiful, homey, comfy and very well appointed ! We enjoyed the "country chic" decor and quiet, beautiful gardens. It's a spotless and well stocked mini-home ... + love the very beautiful chickens ! Never knew of the Homestead area - what a bucolic "neighborhood" get-away in busy Mill Valley ! Will recommend to friends and hope to return. With 2 separate comfy beds, it was a great place for old pals to catch up on our lives. Merci !

Very cute place! My family was in town for our wedding and stayed at Cynthia's place as it is a very short drive to downtown Mill Valley. They noted that it was cozy and comfortable. Cynthia was also very good about providing information about where to park, how to check in etc. Thanks, Cynthia!
