Common sense rules :-) 1. Dishes must be washed and put into the dishwasher; 2) you need to pick up after yourself; 3) you break it, you buy it! ;-) 4) Enjoy yourself!
I loved the place and the hot tub! Todd is an amazing host! He went out of his way to accommodate and make me feel at home. I had a great experience.
Todd was very welcoming and a great host. He opened up his home very generously!
Nice stay right in the middle of Mill Valley. Todd was very accommodating when we decided to make a last-minute trip to Mill Valley. Great hot tub. Thanks again Todd!
Guest bedroom in the main house.
Todd was the best Host someone can ask for! Loved the house and all the beautiful area and nature! Thanks again todd, you rock!
Super friendly and accommodating host. Location couldn't be better. Thanks Todd!
What can I say about staying with Todd in his amazing home! Todd was by far the most generously helpful host I can possibly imagine! The day I was due to arrive, unfortunately I had car trouble. Todd not only worked with me in terms of arriving after the time we had previously agreed on, but literally went online and provided tips to help me with my situation! Who does that, certainly not many people I know. He's a BBQ mastermind, knows the area, and I'm not even getting started in terms of the great hot tub! Todd is not a host, yet a friend you have the opportunity to share time with. Now to the room. I think anyone will be hard pressed to find such an amazing place located blocks from downtown Mill Valley. The view in the morning for coffee is unbelievable! In the evening bars and restaurants are a mere 5 minute walk. The location itself makes you think you're on a small path in a village in Europe seeking out a hidden address. If you like quaint, homy, comfortable, close to everything places when you travel, like I do, I highly suggest the Bohemian Villa of Mill Valley. Thanks for everything Todd!!!!
Todd is a great guy, very laid-back and welcoming. His home is clean and comfortable, in a great location, and he actually has one of the more comfortable beds I've slept on at an airbnb. And I didn't even get to take advantage of the hot tub or amazing views from the deck. I will stay with him again as a first choice when I go back to Mill Valley.
