PERFECT BASE FOR FAMILY VACATION TO SAN FRANCISCO AREA

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our time in the SF area. We stayed 5 nights in June. We went into the city 3 times. Twice we took the Larkspur ferry, which was super easy, and part of the fun (and lets you out at the ferry building, from which we walked or cable-carred to everything). Once we drove in, which was also quick and easy. The convenience of house/car far outweighed the distance (which, really, wasn't an inconvenience at all). The other days, we enjoyed Marin-Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Sausalito.

The house was lovely, as pictured. There is actually a large dining table now, which is not pictured. We only cooked breakfast and snacks, and the kitchen was well-outfitted. We ate dinners in Mill Valley-so many choices, or Sausalito once on our way back from the city.

The bedrooms were very nice and beds super comfortable. One of the reasons we chose this house was that there were twin beds in one bedroom. With 4 tweens and teens who don't like to share beds, this is important! Our 17 year old slept a few nights on the couch in the media room, which probably had something to do with staying up late, but was also a comfortable option.

Another reason for our choice was the outdoor space. Two separate spaces at the house. Kids enjoyed relaxing in the hammock, and I spent more time reading on the deck. Even when it was VERY hot out, the house is cool and shaded. We walked up to the swimming hole up the street, which the kids enjoyed playing in (and there were even beach towels to use).

Supplies were well-stocked, more than we usually see. The only thing we bought was a 4 pack of toilet paper toward the end. With 6 people away from home for 9 days, having laundry (with detergent!) was key.

FABULOUS LOCATION AN HOME IN MILL VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed in this home for a week over spring break. Everything was exactly as described and very comfortable. We felt right at home in the spacious cottage and had so much fun enjoying the area. We walked to the park with our kids and downtown for ice cream. We took the ferry to San Francisco for the day which was a great experience. We cooked dinners in the well stocked kitchen, watched baseball and played games in the media room and rode bicycles around the neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Mill Valley and hope to return again soon!

AMAZING RETREAT FOR ENTIRE FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We also brought our kids (12 and 14) for Spring Break. Before kids we had lived in San Francisco for a few years and so already knew the area but staying at this property was such and amazing way to revisit the area. The house is amazing, the moment you walk in the sun streaming through all the windows and skylight amongst the trees is just dreamy. We even had 2 really rainy days and the kids just wanted to lay on the couch reading for hours looking up at the raindrops hitting the skylight. They've spent many vacations in Ireland so it's not like rain is a novelty ! The restaurants in town were great but everybody just wanted to stay home almost every night. There are lots of hikes nearby, easy and difficult and town is near enough to walk (we didn't!). We have lots of old friends in the city and it's just a quick drive across the bridge but so much nicer than staying in the city which we did a few years ago with the boys. Back to the house - the beds were so comfortable as were the sheets and pillows. Couches and chairs comfy enough to curl up in. Since we got back my son begged for a sound machine - the sound of the creek at night was wonderful. The kitchen had everything we needed and sitting out on the deck looking up at the trees, magical. Kelly was wonderful to work with, everything went very smoothly. Since we returned we all just stop occasionally and talk about what a wonderful time we had - thanks Kelly for sharing your home with us. I would love to go back here either with the kids , with another couple or for a girls weekend. Whatever, I'd even go back by myself ! Best vacation ever.

FABULOUS FAMILY ESCAPE!!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Mill Valley with our 2 children (ages 12&15) over their spring break. We fell in love with the area - great hiking, boutique shopping, and of course the food and wine. The home is gorgeous and very well appointed. Our kids loved being at the home so much that one night they insisted that I cook instead of going to dinner! The boys went fishing in San Francisco one morning and my daughter and I walked into town for shopping and lunch. This was truly a perfect little runaway for our family. I'm already thinking of a girls' getaway...We might invite the husbands...

Owner's Response: Thanks Emily! I am so glad you had a great time with your family at MV and our house. Lately, MV is the only place I can get all three of my kids (14, 11 and 4) together where we all have a great time. Ther eis something for everyone there. Come back any time! I have had several girls weekend there. My friends can't wait for the next invite. We are so lucky to have that house, in that town. We love sharing it with others.

AHWAHNEE CHRISTMAS MAGIC IN MILL VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
It was our turn to host Christmas with my husband's 92 year old mother. She lives in N. California and didn't want to travel far. Much family consternation ensued. Then one day I flashed on holidays I had spent years ago in Mill Valley. His mother spent her childhood Christmas' at the Ahwanee Hotel, in Yosemite Valley, surrounded by redwoods and wildlife. The canyons in Mill Valley are filled with towering redwoods, wildlife and beautiful historic homes. It was wishful thinking that one of the quintessential canyon homes would be available on VRBO.

But, wishes do come true...

The house is better than the pictures. The rooms are bigger than they appear. It is as spotless as a five star hotel. We loved the location, remote enough to feel like you are in a magical hidden valley, but only a short stroll to downtown Mill Valley. While the village is small, the dining options are broad, from TV chef personality, Tyler Florence's El Paseo to charming Toast and everything, and cuisine, in between.

For outdoor adventurers, the trailhead to the Dipsea, one of the most famous trail runs in the country, is practically out the front door. Plus, for the moderate hiker, the house has a wonderful book showcasing the varied hiking options.

It is a magical home in a wonderful setting that is well supplied. Kelly, the owner, is efficient, charming and very helpful. It was the perfect Christmas holiday home for our family. We hated leaving and look forward to an opportunity to return.
