Both myself and my boyfriend absolutely loved our stay at Greg's house. Upon arrival we felt to be landing in a fairytale forest where the houses seem to have been arisen from the trees themselves. We felt to be in a very special place. We were also very happy to have chosen Mill Valley as the perfect base camp to go day tripping both north and south of Golden Gate Bridge. It's a perfect little village where you can be amongst the locals and live the Californian dream. We loved it and dream about it as our perfect retirement place if we're ever so lucky ;-) The studio is indeed very private and exactly as the photos picture it. Very clean. Cozy bed, fully equipped kitchen, stark clean bathroom with great shower, perfect outside deck with BBQ which we did use as an alternative to eating out, parking spot. I would gladly recommend it to anyone traveling to San Francisco area and appreciating a very special location. We were sad to have to leave!
Greg and Barb made us feel like family! Seriously, they were not only welcoming, they were fantastic hosts and we felt like we have made some wonderful new friends. The guest house was great, with dappled sunlight, cool breezes, a lovely walk into town. It was quiet & private. The whole experience was so relaxing and unexpectedly serene. Four thumbs up on this end!
Greg and Barbara made us feel very welcome. They greeted us when we arrived and made sure our accommodations were what we needed. We could not have asked for nicer and more thoughtful hosts.
My Husband and I spent 4 nights at the apartment. Greg was very prompt with getting back to all of my emails, and provided excellent directions to the place. The apartment had everything we needed and there was coffee for us too. Gary was a wealth of information for Mill Valley and the surrounding area. The location really could not be better for getting into town (walk the Dipsea stairs) and is central to many sights (Muir Woods). We certainly are looking forward to a return visit.
We had an excellent stay at Mt Tam View. The living space was very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Greg and Barbara made us feel welcome and offered many suggestions for getting around the area. The easy access to Mill Valley and the numerous Marin area hiking trails is superb.
This was the perfect location for our stay in the bay area. The apartment was impeccably clean, charming and very homey. It had the coziness of a home, and the cleanliness of a hotel-- best of both worlds. The winding drive leading to the house leads you through some magical views of redwood trees and beautiful houses. The owners greet you and then give you total privacy. Loved it. High recommendations.
Our host provided everything we could need. He also gave us space since we were old hands at living in Marin and did not need direction.
The b&b space was true to it's pictures, well designed tasteful and comfortable. As long as you can navigate steep stairs and curvy Mill Valley roads, you will be in heaven!
About the Host, Greg
We have lived in Mill valley for the last 25 years. Both my wife and I grew up in Marin and have lived here for over 60 years. We love to be active. I swim almost daily, with my favorite swim being The Maui Channel Swim. I love getting on my Mt. Bike and biking on the Mountain. Or hiking the Mt. with our dog Maddie.
Love good food..... and cooking, especially on the BBQ.
We love to travel, experiencing new places, cultures and people.
Trying to learn Spanish..... muy deficil. Love to spend time with our grand kids.
