CHARMER ON A HILL

Mill Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Charmer on the Hill

Location: Mill Valley, San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA (20 minutes to downtown San Francisco; 45 minutes to Napa) View Map

Accommodations: House, 2 Bedrooms (one bedroom has a queen bed; the second, a single bed), 1 Bathroom. The living room has a pullout bed -- for extras.

Keywords: Charming cottage on a hill, perfect for visiting couple or grandparents.

Wake up every morning to the sound of birds and a direct view of Mt. Tamalpais. This 2BR, 1 BA charmer overlooks the bay in one direction and is surrounded by tree-covered mountains in the other.

This 1332 sq. ft. house on a hill is 10 minutes from Mill Valley’s quaint downtown; 20 minutes from SF; 20 minutes to Muir Woods; and a half hour to the ocean. The wine country is a pleasant hour-and-a-half drive.

A first-class kitchen and bathroom were recently added; the garden in the back yard looks like something out of a Monet painting.

Read books, sip wine, take walks, explore the area. The living room encourages gathering around the fireplace. This is the perfect getaway for a visiting couple or stay here while you’re visiting family and friends. Welcome!

p.s. More pictures upon request.

I'm an attorney who recently married an old college flame and moved to LA to be with him. But I love this house! It's in great shape, I've lived there (and taken care of it) for years. If I were visiting SF, I'd want to stay here!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1993

This was my primary residence for years.

It's completely charming. I recently remodeled the kitchen (it's huge!) and bathroom. We have great views all around. The air is fresh and clear, the garden is beautiful, deer roam the area. Mill Valley is a great little town. It's a little bit of heaven.

We really enjoyed our stay! The house has a little age but has been updated very nice. We really enjoyed the little doe that came to visit and was not afraid at all! Got some good pictures ! Loved the houses on the mountains- just beautiful. Would go back.

What a wonderful location and home. My husband and I enjoy 4 days here. The home is cozy, clean, and located in a nice quiet area. Mill Valley is a great town, with so much to see and enjoy. Only 45 minutes to Napa Valley, what a beautiful drive that was. Sausalito is only 5/10 minute drive. Gail was very helpful. She has a booklet in her home with information on thing to see, which is very informative. We had the best time, and are looking forward to returning.

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!!

I love Mill Valley so when planning to visit our son in San Francisco we decided to look for a place in Mill Valley. This home is on a hill, so you wake up to spectacular views! The recent remodel could not have been better - the three areas that are most important to me are kitchen, bedroom and bathroom - and no expense was spared! The kitchen was HUGE with all amenities (and then some)! The bathroom was gorgeous and I have to say the shower was absolutely amazing - was hard to get me out of it! Spacious, great water pressure, just perfect. The master bedroom had the most comfortable bed and bedding that we wished we could ditch our teenagers and turn the trip into a romantic getaway!

The home had skylights throughout - in virtually every room - so all was open, sunny and bright. Our trip was very busy (college visits for our other children) so we didn't get to enjoy the cozy fireplace and the many books and games that were offered. The nearby town of Mill Valley is gorgeous and quaint (if you're looking for nightlife - go elsewhere!) and the nearby grocery stores and coffee shops were most convenient.

Gail was absolutely terrific to work with - great follow up and genuine desire to ensure our flawless stay. As I told her, my only complaint was that we only had three nights there - I could stay here forever! We will absolutely come back and recommend this precious, quaint home to anybody looking for that "off the beaten track" hidden gem. THANKS GAIL!!

Nice cottage, nice view

We really enjoyed our staying at this house, its views, the neighborhood, the lovely garden, and its convenient position to San Francisco, downtown Mill Valley, Muir Woods, and Mt Tam. The kitchen is nice and big, with a gas stove and lots of windows and room for cooking. Kitchen, bedroom and bathroom have been nicely remodeled. The living area is cozy and comfortable with its vintage hardwood floors, rugs, a fireplace and lots of books. A light over the dining table (or a floor lamp next to it) would make it perfect. It has been a pleasure to interact with the owner, who is extremely kind and welcoming, and responsive to all our questions and needs. A very enjoyable experience, we would return again. Highly recommended.
