About this listing

This fabulous two bedroom home faces the canyon on the sunny side in Mill Valley. Just minutes walking from downtown, the home is equipped with top quality furnishings, bedding and bath supplies.

The space

A sweet spot on the sunny side of the canyon, this home is fresh, clean and ready for rentals. We are "neat freaks" and think you'll appreciate that we scour the property each and every time, and offer you barefoot-ready property.

The king master has its own deck and the second bedroom furnished with twin beds is perfect for one or two.

The kitchen is nicely equipped with high-quality cookware and essentials, and the deck outside offers a fantastic option for outdoor dining/ relaxing.

The property is located on Lovell Avenue, one of the most coveted streets in Mill Valley. Walk 45 minutes around the loop and pass creeks, waterfalls and numerous trail heads connecting to Mt. Tam. Just in minutes, you can walk to the library, shops, restaurants, and playgrounds.

Interaction with guests

We live just down the street and are generally available to stop by for special needs or certainly to reach us by phone...

Great property and location for seeing the Bay Area! The house is in a more secluded area of Mill Valley but close enough to the quaint downtown area for shopping and dining. The road to the house can be tricky as it is a very narrow two way street with parking here and there where it can be squeezed in. The other drivers we very courteous however and we never had any issues. Worth it for the hillside location and peaceful setting. Just a 20-30 minute drive into San Francisco, 45 minutes to Wine Country, 15 minutes to Muir Woods (a must see!) and Tennessee Valley hiking trails. The house was well appointed and perfect for our family with two teenagers.

Response from Bettina:
Suzanne, thank you so much for the feedback. I'm sorry about the washcloths, there was a "stack" in near the laundry area, but didn't realize that we only left one for you. Will check on that in the future. As for the parking, I hear you. I'm ready for the project down the street to be completed, and construction crew to be off the street (of course until the next project starts)! I'm so glad you had an enjoyable stay and we'd love to host you again!! All the best, Bettina

Cozy apartment in a bit more remote area. Spacious enough for 4 people. We had a great time at Bettina's place and can recommend the AirBnB to others.

We spent almost 5 days in mill valley and felt very comfortable. The small cottage has a well equipped kitchen. Large TV. Large comfortable bed. The heating was necessary for us. The bathroom had small flaws (floor tiles) but otherwise everything is available (towels, shampoo, hair dryer ..) As far as a very great place with nice shops, cafes and markets. The people there are all very friendly.

We had a very comfortable and pleasant stay in this cozy house. Though it is quite compact, we were a couple and another adult and it worked very well. The double bed is very comfortable and the two balconies are great, lovely outdoor space with wonderful views. We never met Bettina but she was very clear, prompt and helpful in her communication.

I had a wonderful two week stay in Bettina's home... It was perfect location for me... I could hike right out the front door on the road and trails in the neighborhood... Within minutes by car travel to the Marin Headlines, Muir Woods, Tennessee Beach... Fifteen minutes to the Ferry landing for the best commute in America... 25 minutes across the bay to SF...I enjoyed several trips to wine country an hour to ninety minutes away.. The house is located in a great neighborhood of high end homes...the hillside road is narrow and I would recommend a small car for easier parking... The house is as described... A light filled contemporary on two levels... Living, kitchen/dining, bathroom on one level and two bedrooms on the lower level... I especially enjoyed the sunny outdoor deck with a dining table and chairs... I had a minor concern during my stay which Bettina was very considerate and responsive to resolving... I found Mill Valley to have the feeling of a small town with at least six excellent restaurants, (Playa is my favorite) two Whole Foods etc... There is some residential construction nearby and I recommend discussing the status of that with Bettina prior to booking... Assuming it's available, I am looking forward to being a guest in Bettina's home next summer....

This was the perfect place for our family vacation base. Mill Valley is a beautiful little community with great shops and restaurants, and its a short pretty drive to Muir Woods and Stinson Beach. We also did lots of day trips to San Francisco and Napa / Sonoma, and also rode the ferry over to SF from nearby Sausalito one day as well. Perfect location! The house had all we needed for our stay, and our family of four was comfortable in the limited time we were at there (because we were out playing most of the week). The outside sitting area and the view of the canyon were perfect for an evening glass of wine or a morning coffee! Would definitely recommend.
