Our retreat is located a quick 10 minute drive over the golden gate bridge. This historical vacation destination for escaping “city life” has become the chosen land. The journey across the Golden Gate Bridge (GGB) itself is memorable. Views of sf bay, the pacific ocean and rugged coast line are lovely. And they are ever changing with the tides, winds, fog, sunshine & shadows of the iconic towers.
Per one of our guests:
“Cyndi was a great host and her house is the perfect situation if you are looking for access to Mill Valley's fantastic landscape, beaches, town, etc. Perfectly comfortable, well appointed, and an ideal house to rent if you have a few people in your group. Very much plan to rent again when i have to be in the area again.'
We'd also be delighted to assist with our recommended Best Sightseeing tours and other specialty activities. Our specialty is custom private tours for San Francisco, Wine Country ( there are numerous winery regions to explore, each with their own charisma and notable wines), Monterey/ Carmel, Yosemite.
