MILL VALLEY ESCAPE-MINUTES TO FREEWAY, WOODED LOT & WATER VIEW

Mill Valley House Rental Photos and Description

First level of a 2-story duplex. In quiet neighborhood so no parties (Sleeps 2)

Vista Mill Valley has the details inside and outside that warrant your consideration. Inside, the property has nice furnishings, from granite counter tops to the Fisher & Paykel gourmet gas range. The bedroom has an 8 ft glass window and a 10 ft sliding glass door. The living room has another 8 ft window, making the wooded lot a part of your experience. Your unit has its own deck, accessible from the bedroom or the main entrance. Your water view includes Richardson Bay, Tiburon, the Sausalito houseboats, Angel Island, the East Bay hills, and, on a clear night, the lit-up cranes of the Oakland waterfront, across the Bay.

Why Mill Valley?

Mill Valley is popular for visitors from around the world because it is minutes from San Francisco, yet a world apart. Famous for its wooded hillsides and water views, Mill Valley has been the home of many notables, from Jerry Garcia to Janis Joplin. Grab a coffee in our downtown, and you might just recognize a few of our current residents.

If you've not been the the San Francisco Bay Area before, do stay in San Francisco for at least one night. But then come join us here in Mill Valley, for the perfect northern California experience.

Why this property?

A few years ago we completed a major remodel, taking much of the property down to the studs. This means that you will be enjoying accommodations that are basically new. All the small details - sophisticated lighting, built-in speakers, etc. - contribute to a great experience. The kitchen is small, so we made it special, with a gourmet gas range, granite counter tops, etc. The deck was always nice, but we made it nicer, with Brazilian teak, and cable railings. And the exterior path and steps have been redesigned, to better leverage the garden.

Finally: consider our location. Mill Valley has many wonderful properties, but some of them are time-consuming to get to. This property is only 1.1 miles from the freeway ramp.

A final thought: this property has about 40 stairs to the unit. Not 40 in a row; and most of the steps are low-rise, but read my 120+ reviews, and make sure the property is appropriate for you. Thanks!

About Bill

I'm Bill; my wife is Terry.

Bill purchased this house in 2003

Why Bill chose Mill Valley

I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1978. Lots of communities are great. Berkeley's as entertaining as any place in the world, and Palo Alto and Menlo Park were both good addresses when I was working for dot-coms. And for a night-life, San Francisco is, of course, the place to be. But for being close to everything, yet feeling far away, Mill Valley is as good as it gets. (Go to Wikipedia, and look up 'Mill Valley' to see an amazing list of the rich and famous who have selected this town as their home.) While some parts of Mill Valley are hard to get to, this house is only 5.4 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge, making the property particularly practical.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bill and Terry,



We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at your beautiful place. The interior design and attention to detail were beyond our expectations. The view and scenery from the living room and bedroom were amazing. The terraced hillside gardens were lush, beautiful and peaceful. It was close to all Marin County has to offer. We feel very lucky in finding such an outstanding and reasonably priced accommodation. Thank you very much. Looking forward to a return visit.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5
The location was great, the unit was very clean and the bed was comfortable (I am quite picky). We really enjoyed the view and were greeted by 3 deer quite a few times during our stay. Bill was really helpful and very accomodating to us. We highly recommend this location, we loved it here. We would stay here again!

Just Lovely

  • 5 of 5
As others have noted, the apartment is spacious, well furnished, and beautifully maintained. My husband and I spent a relaxing week in the stunning natural areas around Mill Valley, with easy day trips to San Francisco (do take one of the ferries across the bay). We especially appreciated the maps and guidebooks provided by Bill and Terry, which lead us to places we might not have seen otherwise. Highly recommended!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this beautiful home in Mill Valley. From the moment we walked in, we felt at home. Everything you need, they have supplied. It is exceptionally clean. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. The view is stunning. You could not be more centrally located--20 minutes to San Francisco, 35 minutes to Napa, 15 minutes to Muir Woods. There was no doubt that we chose an ideal location for our stay. This place certainly exceeded our expectations, which wasn't easy considering all the glowing reviews from previous guests. Would certainly stay here again, and highly recommend!

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS, CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5
Although we’ve stayed at other VRBOs, this is by far our favorite rental. Wonderful setting, very clean, and fully outfitted with all that you need.

Easy access to San Francisco, Sonoma, Napa and beyond make Mill Valley an excellent location for the Bay area and northern California in general. We love this area because of the close proximity to mountains, redwoods, ocean and wonderful hiking trails throughout Marin County.

Mill Valley is a charming town with many good restaurants, theaters and music venues. Thanks again, Bill and Terry, for a memorable vacation. We look forward to our next visit!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed a week at Bill’s place and it was perfect! The home was spotless, spacious, and well equipped with all the comforts from home. Bill was the perfect host! He guided us on our travels and made us feel very welcomed. Mill Valley is the perfect location. It is 15 minutes from San Francisco and a short drive to Napa and Sonoma. In addition to San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma, we venture out to the Redwood Forest, Highway 1, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and Monterey. We hope to return and stay again at Bill’s.

Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5
The property is just like the pictures. It was easy to find just north of the Golden Gate bridge. Upon arrival we were greeted by Bill, the owner, who helped us up the steps with our luggage. He then acquainted us with the unit even suggesting local restaurants. Everything you need to know he has spelled out in a guest book; grocery stores, restaurants, hikes etc.. The unit itself was even nicer than the pictures. Clean, well stocked, comfortable and private. They views are breath taking and we had many deer sightings on the property. My only complaint is that we should have stayed longer!!! Five days was not enough. It's great to do all the fun things in S.F., but return to a tranquil home at the end of the day. Thank you Bill.

Mill Valley is a special town - only 7 miles north of San Francisco, but a world apart. This vacation rental - Vista Mill Valley - is also special.

We offer a modern, sophisticated interior, beautiful Brazilian teak deck, and views to die for. And the property has location. It's not 20 minutes up in the hills, but 1.1 miles from the 101 freeway - San Francisco really is just ten minutes away.

You will need to climb 40 stairs to reach your flat, but it is worth it. It means the view is a bit better, and the garden is pleasant. Don't be surprised if a buck or two scurry away as you pass; our goldfish pond seems to be a popular watering hole!

Inside is new. New floors, new drywall, new windows, new cabinets, new tile, new designer stove, new dishes, new glassware, new bedding. Welcome to Vista Mill Valley.
