It is a very nice room with quite neighborhood. Very close to Muir Woods/beach. Also easy access to San Francisco. I will come again for sure.

Doug, you were a wonderful host! Sorry we didn't get to meet you. Your space was divinely situated so that we could rise and walk the hilly neighborhood down into town for breakfast, discovering the Dipsea Stairs that cut the hike in half. Scenic drives made up our days, with not too far a drive and with breathtaking views, to so many ideal places to explore - Larkspur, Berkeley, SF, Stinson Beach, Point Reyes, San Rafael, etc. Loved the heady scent of the trees. Hope to be back one day!

We prefer the forest to the city, so Doug's place was perfect for us. He was flexible with our arrival and departure. The room was clean (I'm a cleanliness person), and the sheets were soft. The drive up to the house was not for the faint of heart very windy, but my husband is great with that stuff. Bring a flashlight if arriving at night there are steps descending to the au pair unit and it's dark. Also, if the weather allows be sure to open the windows, the scent of the flowers is incredible!

I stayed at Doug's place while I did some exploring in the Muir Woods and around Mill Valley. It was very pleasant and located in a very nice neighborhood. I had a nice stay and would return if I am lucky enough to head back that way for another weekend trip!

Really wonderful location and home! Nestled back in a quiet neighborhood near the Muir Woods. A great location if you're looking for a quick weekend getaway or would like to have access to surrounding trails. Doug & his family were very welcoming and hospitable. Also a great place if you're early to bed and early to rise as quiet hours were between about 10pm-5/6am.
