Welcome to our classic Mill Valley redwood home! It is nestled on a sunny hillside surrounded by a variety of native trees. We are in a very convenient location to town (no long, scanty roads making you nauseous just to get from here to there) yet still secluded in nature. As you stand on the deck and enjoy the view, the drifting fragrance of jasmine, rose, lavender, and rosemary greet you from your own private garden. We provide clean organic cotton bed linens and towels for your comfort. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the rustic living room.Your 1000 sq. ft guest quarters on the lower floor have a private entrance and parking (we have several private parking spots for multiple cars).
Our family resides on the upper but the two floors are completely separate and private. Perfect for families, visiting in-laws, or couples that like to cook- there is a fully-equipped kitchen as well as washer, dryer. It's a short walk to downtown and to all hiking/biking trails. The house is also right off a main street that locals choose to quickly escape to Muir Woods, Muir Beach, and Stinson, etc.

We spent over a week in this glorious apartment, and we will def come back! It was a sheer delight, homely spacious and peaceful, everything you might need in the kitchen and more, plus beautiful personal decor. Very special place. Wonderful fires in the evening, relaxing breakfast in the sun on the back porch. Fantastic tree views from the bedroom, and all comfortable and clean. Mr Monti was incredibly helpful, kind and friendly as a host, we couldn't have asked for better. Always there when we needed help, but giving us complete privacy otherwise. We felt so at home here, and would recommend it to anyone who is lucky enough to spend time in beautiful Marin County. Thank you!!!
What a beautiful home! Above and beyond expectations. So cozy we didn't want to go out. Made full use of the kitchen too by cooking and eating in. Perfect environment for relaxing. Walked into the town as well. About a 15 minute walk when you're ready to get out and explore. Nice experience.
Phenomenal stay! The host was communicative, kind, and very welcoming. The home was gorgeous- we had everything we needed, and much more. There were two off-street parking spots, which was great, and the location was minutes from everything, yet gave you the feeling of a woodsy, relaxing vacation. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!
This is a lovely little two bedroom in Mill Valley. Perfect for my wife and two daughters. The host was responsive and extremely helpful. Strongly recommend.
In short, the place was fantastic!
Beautiful space and view, with great location (very close to downtown, whole foods, etc.).
Very easy to communicate with the host - checking in was simple and had very clear instructions. Space to park in the driveway was a bonus.
Many great surprises too such as an acoustic guitar kicking, a complementary bottle of wine + candles, and supplies to start a fire in the fireplace. From a utility stand-point, the central air worked wonderfully and the shower/bathroom was fully equipped. Also a great view from the balcony!
I would stay here again, no question!
We spent a week in this house - it is charming, comfortable, clean and in a great location - close to downtown, hiking, biking and beaches... The hosts were very friendly and extremely accessible, but respectful of our privacy.
I would recommend this home to a friend.
Great location in the heart of Mill Valley. Easy access to shops and restaurants! The space is clean, sweetly decorated and spacious for my parents and I plus my toddler. The owners live directly above you, so some sound transfer is inevitable, but they are also available for anything you might need. They also set up some toys and books for my little girl that she absolutely loved. Mr. Monti was very helpful and gave us some good pointers on the Bay Area and housing from his personal experience. Great hosts!
I did not stay here or even see the place myself, but we booked it for friends who came in town to attend our wedding. They enjoyed their stay and would recommend it. Their only other feedback was that the accommodations did not have any clocks or music, and less importantly did not have a TV. They said they would have liked at least a clock radio or alarm clock in the bedroom. Our friends borrowed our iPod/iPhone digital music player (with a clock) to use during their stay. Otherwise, great place, they said.
Wonderfully appointed. Great kitchen. Everything you might need. Linens bedding etc all top quality. A clean and comfortable base to explore lovely Mill Valley and surrounds. Met our hosts on arrival. They were very relaxed and flexible as we had an unexpected guest for one of our nights. Perhaps be aware that the property is underneath the host's house. As such you do hear a little noise upstairs when they walk around their place, but it's really no big deal. My sense is that they are pretty sensitive to this. Would definitely return. A well appointed, super clean welcoming environment in a terrific part of the Bay Area!
Great location to many local things.
