Mill Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

DOWNTOWN...FLAT...SUNNY...

This quiet and charming freestanding 1 bedroom garden cottage is located in the flat and sunny area of beautiful downtown Mill Valley - just minutes from San Francisco! It is fully furnished and comes completely equipped.

With over 850 square feet, it is more than three times as large as a typical hotel room. The maximum occupancy is 2 adults or a family with up to two small children. If traveling with children we ask kindly to specifically mention them in your inquiry. Also, please include information about the purpose of your trip in your inquiry (business trip, family visit, tourist, etc.) since we feel much more comfortable renting to someone we 'know' than to a complete stranger ;-). It also helps us to know what you might expect from your stay.

This is a completely freestanding small house, not an attached 'studio/apartment': 1 bedroom, one large living room with wood burning fireplace (and a queensize convertible sofa), an extra sun room and a separate breakfast room connected to the large chefs kitchen. Enjoy beautiful hardwood floors, a bathtub and a sweet backyard garden.

For children we offer the following sleeping arrangements at no extra cost: 1) 1 pack-n-play for babies, 2) twin size mattress on the floor either next to the masterbed or in the sunroom for younger children or 3)queensize converted sofabed in the living room for older children.

The cottage is quietly and private set at the end of the property behind the main house with a big private space for outdoor seating. Your own small basement with washer and dryer offers additional secure storage space for bikes or surfboards. The owner lives in the main house in front of the property.

Located in the middle of Mill Valleys most desirable neighborhoods Sycamore and Boyle Park it is very close to playgrounds, tennis courts and a golf course. Trailheads and bike paths along the Bay are nearby. Walk in 5 minutes to bustling Downtown Mill Valley Plaza and Depot, Whole Foods, shops and boutiques, coffee shops, Library, Mill Valley Art and Film Festival, Mill Valley Market, Community Center with pool and gym, clubs (2 am, Sweetwater), schools, first class restaurants (El Paseo!, Balboa Cafe and many others...). Boyle Park is just a short walk away, Sycamore Avenue is around the corner.

The bus stop to San Francisco or San Rafael is 1 block down the street and the Golden Gate Bridge only 10 minutes away by car. San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon, Corte Madera, Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, Marin General Hospital, College of Marin are all only minutes away by car and you could bike as well!

International travelers welcome! We speak English and German.

Please inquire about the minimum stay requirements. Longer stays are welcome, too:

Many of my guests choose to stay between 1 and 3 months, however, we limit it to a maximum of 4 months.

Why Hilde Kraemling chose Mill Valley

Mill Valley was voted by CNN to be one of the top ten most desirable places to live in the Nation: CNN/Money magazine noted ”Dotcom millionaires and power couples in the film and music industries are flocking to what not so long ago was a hangout for artists and reformed hippies just 14 miles from the Golden Gate.' The magazine adds, 'Yet most residents are interested in maintaining the town's low-key, back-to-nature atmosphere. Think fleece and flip-flops, not fur and stilettos.'

However, what sold us to Mill Valley was its unique location with close proximity to San Francisco, the ocean and Stinson Beach and its European 'walk and bike everywhere, shop in high end stores, eat in cute little restaurants and talk to your friendly neighbors' atmosphere. Being here is like living an everyday vacation with endless options for getaways and activities: Salmon watching or Hiking in Muir Woods, Whale Watching in Point Reyes, Sailing, Boating, Fishing, Biking, Riding, Golf, Surfen, Mount Tamalpais State Park, San Francisco Sight Seeing, Wine Tasting in Napa or Sonoma County, Skiing in Tahoe.....

What makes this cottage unique

While staying at the cottage there is literally no need for a car: Everything in downtown Mill Valley is in close walking distance, even trails to Mount Tamalpais and bus stops to San Francisco or San Rafael are nearby. Enjoy outdoor living and relaxed, friendly people in Mill Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am making my plans for my next visit to Mill Valley and am wondering if your cottage is free in August. I can't get your cozy cottage out of my mind - It was such a perfect place to stay and write last summer!

Fantastic Cottage Close to Town Center!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage for my parents and there stay could not have been better. Close to downtown mill valley, this little bungalow offers plenty of space, nice privacy and a welcoming vibe after a long day of cruising the town or hiking all of the awesome trails. Can't wait for more family to visit so we can have them stay here!

Perfect hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
I loved my stay at this great cottage! It has a perfect location that allows you to walk to everything in downtown Mill Valley, complete privacy and quiet, and it is furnished with everything you need- from wifi to TV to a kitchen fully stocked with all the glasses, plates, and pots and pans you'll need (I travel often and rent a lot of places and almost always cook in them, very few have decent kitchen supplies, but this one does!) The unit has been very well maintained and designed and is a cozy cottage perfect for a few days or a few weeks.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for a couple of weeks in May and can't say enough about the property as well as the owners. Everything was exactly as it looks in the pictures and the cottage was as perfect as could be. There was the perfect balance between attending to any requests and providing privacy. I'm not sure that any description I could give here would actually do this property and our stay there justice. If you're looking for a quiet, private, conveniently located comfortable home away from home then this is it! We've been planning our return since we left:)

Convenient Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this place and our stay was perfect. My wife and I enjoyed having space to relax in after our days of sightseeing. The house was spotless with every convenience (including a cd collection). Loved being surrounded by trees and having a private deck and outdoor dining set-up. There was just too much of a chill in the air to take advantage of it for our breakfast. A very short walk to the center of town with its outstanding market and restaurants. Less than an hour to Sonoma and a quick ride to the magnificent Muir Woods. Our host greeted us as we arrived with a friendly smile and handshake. We didn't really need anything, but we knew we could always call her if we did. A great plus was the washer and dryer; made our trip easier by bringing a small suitcase. Would defintely recommend this bungalow for your next trip to the Bay area.

Sweet relaxation

  • 5 of 5
Located in a back yard within a few blocks of Mill Valley, with sweet neighborhood sounds like birds and children. Squirrels run along the fence. Kitchen and dining area are sunny, very comfy bed, living room is airy and inviting. Patio for eating al fresco is private and charming. All the amenities of home, and views of green from every room. Privacy honored and the landlord is accommodating and efficient. Lots of walks and hiking nearby.

Lovely home to getaway to!

  • 5 of 5
I was so pleased to find this lovely, well appointed home. It was just what we were looking for and more. Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) had plenty of space and enjoyed the walkable proximity to the shops.
