The Space

Romantic hide-away for one or two. Unique charming cross between Ewok village, high tech Shire and Olympian Eyre: suitable for the eco tourist, road weary business traveler, honeymooners, bird watchers, tree huggers, athletically /aesthetically inclined artist nerd, exotic dignitaries, celebrity monks, training retreater wanting to experience nature by visit/living an experiment in social future building. Ultimate quiet and privacy with separate entrance and house privileges, kitchen, laundry, hot tub, hiking/bike trails, ample outdoor parking. WIFI, work on-site office facilities and many unusual options. The room is light filled all day with sumptuous down comforters and natural fiber linens to snuggle in for a long winter's nap. The 100+-year-old Heidi house craftsman style local redwood construction is warmed by old-fashioned fireplace of the same vintage, letting your imagination time travel to the age of dirt main streets when the Gravity train passed not far from our access trails. History buffs, globetrotters, poets, mycologists, physicists, jam with the achieved musicians and entertainers who frequent this house. The environs of the quaint southern Marin community offers many of the traditional seasonal artsy/athletic events: Mill Valley Film Festival, the famous Dipsea Race, ascending and descending the adjacent ridge, the esteemed annual Old Mill Park Fall Arts Fair, the birth place of mountain biking utilizing the abundance of hiking/biking trails - linking the Bay fronting the Portofino like Sausalito, to the majestic white sanded coast of the Pacific. Enthusiastic wind surfers and hang gliders dot the horizon. Jack Kerouac authored Dharma Bums and The Scripture of the Golden Eternity, near the trailhead outside our Canyon entrance. Access by trail to the property or ascend meandering stairs suggests minimum baggage maximum health. Smoking cigarettes is an unwelcome hazard on the mountain; the parking lot below allows. To fully enjoy the opportunity of being in this piece of paradise, 16 minutes from the Golden Gate Toll Plaza, be prepared to energetically relax. Enjoy organic gardens, honey from our happy bees, chlorine and fluoride free water, and take deep breaths of pollution free air. The makings are all here for your pleasure and appreciation. Seeing is believing. You will prefer a vehicle to get to the main road, if you don’t want to walk a mile and a half to Miller Ave., main street in Mill Valley, for public transportation. Inevitably you will want to stay longer than you have booked. Happy trails.

  • We had an excellent experience surrounded by trees and vines and bird song. I was very grateful for the luggage lift at the beginning of the stairs and the friendly household. We have already booked a return visit.

  • Perfect location to get away from it all and have time to introspect! The space is very cozy, and literally lost in the trees as if a modern day installment of the Ewok village! Complete with redwood canopied trails and easy access to various parts of the city, I would definitely recommend Faustin's listing

  • It was a relaxing a place as I have ever stayed. Faustin makes you feel like the home is yours the second you walk in the door, she could not have be a nicer more gracious host and I highly recommend that anyone thinking of staying in Marin, look her up.

    You will be happy you did.

  • I loved staying with Faustin. The space comes completely as advertised: unique, peaceful, among the trees. Faustin is very sweet, with offers for breakfast and accommodation.

    Highly recommended.

  • The tower room was amazing! Settled high amongst the redwoods and surrounded by every plant and flower you could imagine. Faustin was an amazing host and extremely accommodating. For those seeking an eclectic, ethereal, magical place to stay this is it. Faustin is an inspiring unique host full of interesting tidbits of San Francisco and many of it's movements. We can't wait to go back and spend more time with her amongst the backdrop of redwoods and magic.

  • This was a miracle...

    I showed up in San Rafael for a training and since the time of my registration a week earlier, all the hotels were sold out!

    My boyfriend hustled online and thanks to Air B&B found me this tree house place while in the middle of my first day of training.

    I was feeling grateful to have a place to stay and excited to explore a new adventure.

    It was an amazing ONE OF A KIND experience. Faustin is fascinating and a real sweetheart with a great attitude! She went above and beyond to accommodate me! Her Treehouse in the Redwoods blew my mind! if you want to be somewhere special and unique and have an experience you will always remember, then this is the place for you!

    There is still so much more to discover and I hope to visit again soon, not just for the surreal and rustic treehouse, but to meet my beautiful new friend, Faustin!

    PS i would tell you more amazing details, but i think it is nice to allow some of the magic to reveal itself. ; )

I was born in New York, welcomed by many older siblings who have since moved to locations all over the US. I have traveled extensively and I am grateful for the abundance of opportunities available to me. I have a media company focused primarily on optimizing the well being of all life through sharing knowledge, connection and the experience of living as naturally as I can in a suburban rain forest so close to San Francisco. Truth, beauty and seeking the light guides my decisions while paying the bills and getting along with the neighbors. I hope to offer a unique and fun ecco tourist experience to the AirBnB members coming to the Tree House.
