The Space

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 covered 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Highly recommended. Lower floor rooms are clean and nicely styled and outfitted. Kitchen area had everything we needed. Bathroom was fine but could have used another place for family members to put toiletries. Includes a washer/drier and a pleasant back patio.
    Hosts let us know that they would be upstairs and could help with anything if we wanted (not needed). They live on the upper floor and are very quiet except for the occasional footsteps heard.
    Location is a few minutes drive to grocery stores and a number of good and affordable restaurants - recommend Sol Foods. Also short drive to Muir Woods and Hwy 101. Downside is a very tight driveway and exit onto a busy and narrow street but we got pretty good at that.
    Overall, a wonderful stay.

  • Samir and Camille keep a wonderfully comfortable, beautifully appointed home in the Mill Valley hills within walking distance of all the attractions. Fully self contained with a lovely sunny deck with views over the eastern hills, we found it the perfect location to enjoy all that this exquisite town has to offer. Highly recommended, we hope to return

  • What a find! Just up the hill from Whole Foods and 5 minutes to downtown Mill Valley or 5 minutes to hiking trails on Mt. Tam. Super nice accommodating host who put all unscented soaps and cleaners in the home for me and loaned me some cookware and a guitar! Spacious bedrooms and awesome water pressure in the shower. Clean, bright, nice private back deck. The neighborhood is very quiet. All you hear are nature sounds (and sometimes the patter of little feet from their adorable little boy upstairs). Fireplace works great.

  • There are not enough words to express how amazing this place is, truly magical! the apartment is specious, spotless clean and decorated charmingly, the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet - just what we needed after the hustle and bustle of SF!
    The location is superb and just minuets drive from the Whole Foods market and other amenities, there are lovely eatery options downtown as well but the kitchen is well equipped for cooking too. Muir woods/beach and many hiking trails are conveniently located 15 min drive from the apartment which was super great for us!
    Samir is a great host, took care of all our needs and was always there to help with anything! he was fun to talk to and has the cutest kids ever :) gave us a lot of tips and even drew us a map for a great hiking trail - highly recommended.
    we were so sad to leave and definitely come back next time!!

  • Perfection! I can't say enough wonderful things about out stay here! The space is gorgeous, the energy is relaxed, and all of the logistics ran very smoothly. It was easy to get around - close to downtown Mill Valley, and very convenient to explore Marin, and to get to the east bay and SF. We are looking forward to staying here again on our next visit to the bay!

  • I highly recommend this lovely place. It is spectacular. Spotless clean with the most beautiful details in furnishings and decor. The veranda was perfect for morning coffee and working a few hours in the sunshine while admiring the lovely roses and fruit trees. the kitchen is perfect for cooking for yourself, but you are also close to numerous options for eating in town. The hosts are fantastic and very accessible, if needed. I felt welcomed with a fresh cut rose and a bottle of pinot noir when I arrived. The host texted me the following morning to check in. I had total privacy, but knew I could rely on the hosts for any help. They also have a list of recommended things to do in the area and places to eat and shop, which is very helpful. The two bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Laundry on site is a bonus too! Love love love this place and I will be back!

  • We enjoyed our all-too-brief stay; the hosts are very personable and thoughtful and looked after us well (the neighbors had a party one night, but our hosts made sure we had a parking spot when we returned that evening). I grew up in MV and this home is ideally situated to get downtown or to the beach easily. There are young children upstairs and we did awaken to the pitter-patter of feet... normally we would have been up at that hour but were in need of a little sleep-in after our week of ambitious travel touring colleges for our son. The bottle of wine that greeted us upon arrival was unexpected and most welcome! The fresh-ground coffee for the mornings was a treat, too.

  • Our stay at the Mill Valley Vacation Home was absolutely wonderful. The home is spacious, very clean and bright with lots of windows facing the rising sun. We spent a lot of time on the back deck as the weather was beautiful and at night we enjoyed sitting around the fire in the fireplace. We also took many hikes - in nearby Muir Woods and to town for dinner. The home is on a hill so the view is good and walking around that area makes for great exercise! The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are very clean and convenient to use. The whole house is beautifully designed. Also, the host was very accommodating and helpful. My two women friends and I highly recommend this home.
