Relax and connect with nature at this local designer's 2 bedroom chalet in the heart of charming Mill Valley. Nestled among trees, you will rejuvenate with deer passing by, wrap around deck, designer bed linens and simple modern decor.

Note: We installed a new luxury central heating system in November 2016 as the last heating system stopped working during a guest stay (as noted in a review). We provided them with electric heaters and then replaced entire system that week. All new now!

Yasmine was a wonderful host and made efforts to provide things like extension cords and a reading lamp promptly. Her place is very conveniently located near Tam Junction and the freeway so it is easy to get to the city,Stinson Beach or downtown Mill Valley. The chalet was clean,…

Response from Yasmine:
I am very glad Ben had a great stay, especially considering all else he has going on in his life right now. I was a bit confused though to see his criticisms, especially given how many multiple special accommodations were made for him, including the opening of a third bedroom at his specific request. This third bedroom is not normally made available. My listing is two bedroom. The third bedroom is in the basement, so I do not make it available normally, only at a guest’s special request. After he arrived, he did see the bedroom and asked if he could use it so his adult daughter could visit. I was happy to make it available for him (at no extra charge of course) so he could enjoy her company. So I am a bit disappointed to have him mention negative comments about it in a review. He emailed me while she was staying there saying how much his daughter was enjoying her stay, saying it pleasantly reminded her of her grandmother's basement, bringing back many happy memories, so I am confused. Basements often have musty smells, so as stated, it is not normally even made available. The basement is simply there for guests to access the laundry room. Perhaps he inadvertently used the word mold instead of musty, as there is zero evidence of anything like that, and any such usage is inaccurate and unfounded. Perhaps he was simply confused as to the difference is all. Likewise, with the kitchen, it is a galley kitchen, it is narrow (see pictures in listing as I try to include several angles), but it is certainly possible to cook and eat there. Dozens of guests have been able to do so, including a four person family who lived and cooked in the house for five years before we converted it to a vacation rental. Hopefully my multiple 5 stars reviews will help balance out this particular one in the minds of other potential guests. Please reach out to me with any questions at all, I am happy to send more photos or details.

We stayed at this wonderful home for a weekend wedding and loved it! The location is safe and easy to get to. Plus there's parking for two cars. Yasmine did a great job decorating and making it feel like a real home, which made it very easy to relax in. The beds were comfortable …

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The modern design provided a fun and relaxing environment to come back to every night, and the location served as a great base from which to explore Marin County, Sonoma, and San Francisco. Yasmine has clearly put a lot of thought into…

Very nice home. We had 6 adults, which I would not recommend because there is not a lot of room for 6 people to relax comfortably together. Also there was only one key. Perfect for 4 adults or 4 adults with 2 children, though. The bathroom was very nice and spacious. Kitchen…

Response from Yasmine:
Thank you Tim for your lovely review. I am glad you had a great stay. You were a wonderful guest and took nice care of the house. I agree with you that the house is best suited for 4 people. I prefer to book up to 4 guests versus groups of 6 for the reason you mention. Also, the nightly rate is really for 4 guests not 6. But since it does have 3 bedrooms it can sleep 6 people if a group really wants to. When a party of 5 or 6 requests to book I mention the layout BEFORE I accept the reservation as I did before you booked (e.g. I mention that there is one bedroom in the basement, one bathroom in the house) and tell guests that it will be tight and cozy for 6 adults. I tell guests that its good for 6 adults only if they are planning to be out exploring most of the time vs all hanging out together at the house. So thanks for mentioning this as I only want it to be the most comfortable experience for all guests. On the coffee mugs, we actually have top of the line ceramic mugs from local pottery maker Heath Ceramics at the property for all guests to use (they luxury mugs as they cost $36/mug for me to buy! But I love leaving nice mugs for guests since its all about relaxing at the house and enjoying local artisans). I am so sad you didn't have them during your stay. It's my fault. I had a holiday dinner party at my house the day you arrived so I borrowed them for this use. I thought about bringing them all back but didn't want to disturb you. But I should have done so as you would have loved them. My sincere apologies. They are now back there for all guests to use! Also, we do have two spare keys hidden at the house for guests to use if they need extra. I wish you had emailed me you needed another key. But thanks to your feedback I will go back to leaving 2 keys in the lock box for guests to make it simpler. Thanks for mentioning that in your review! Happy New Year! Yasmine
