About Katy Spence

My name is Anna and Le Nid (the nest) is the lower in-law to what was my long time family home (Casa Anna) for 40 years. Due to a fall this year I made the decision to move to a senior community that was closer to my daughters Kerry and Katy who will be your hostesses during your stay. While I do not live in Le Nid any longer, my daughters share the lovely stories they have collected from guests. I know you will enjoy your stay in this beautiful home and town. Mill Valley has been a place for me to raise my 4 children after having relocated here from a small town in Wyoming back in 1969.

Katy Spence purchased this cottage in 1973

Why Katy Spence chose Mill Valley

I bought this property because it was a serene and safe neighborhood to raise my children as a single parent. I had relocated to MIll Valley from Wyoming in 1969 and discovered Mill Valley and the beautiful Mt. Tamalpais to be a place of peace and safety. I have taken care of this property for over 40 years and am thrilled to be able to share it's beauty with you.

What makes this cottage unique

Le Nid is in a quiet and beautiful family neighborhood. While it is only 800 sq feet and is cozy, it also is designed to feel spacious and give space when there are 3 or more guests. Le Nid contains everything you need. There is a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and den with a pull out queen sleeper. There is beauty everywhere with antiques, ethnic rugs and rustic built-ins throughout the cottage. There are two flat screen televisions with cable, wifi, a dvd player and comcast phone which has unlimited long distance within USA and Canada. There is a sirene and beautiful outdoor patio that is exclusive for this home equipped with comfortable wicker chairs and surrounded by mature hydrangeas. There is a new Sony stereo that has blue tooth.

The home is located just two blocks from downtown MIll Valley. It is a 20 min drive to the beaches, 20 minutes to San Francisco, 10 min to Sausalito and 1 hour from Napa and Sonoma and the best wine tasting in the world. There is an abundance scenary, hiking, just minutes from the cottage. Safe bike trails are everywhere and there are bike trails connecting Mill Valley to San Francisco.

What most guests remark on is the originality of the cottage has been left in tact and all the modern day conveniences like wifi, comfortable and beautiful decor, and delux bedding makes one feel as if they are in a spa setting.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay. My husband and 2 small children (ages 7 & 5) arrived to a beautiful, clean and welcoming atmosphere. Katy the hostess was wonderful and provided us with such small added touches (special soft 'snuggly' blankets for the kids, coffee for the adults in the morning etc) that truly made our adjustment from the east coast to the west coast wonderful. The home was very clean and comfortable. Beds were wonderful - we all slept so great.

Katy was also great at communicating prior to our arrival. She was very quick to respond to any questions we would of had.

I truly felt 'at home' at this rental property as did my family. We would happily stay here again.

Intimate Eclectic Romantic

  • 5 of 5
Our Hostess Katy has thought of every detail that furnishes a comfortable stay, from the cushy sofas to the sleep all night mattress to the brand new stainless steel appliances. Color and texture surround providing a cozy, homey atmosphere. Katy is simply charming, having met us when we arrived to acquaint us and answer any questions. The neighborhood is safe and the residents are quiet. We had a lovely vacation.

Highly Recommend!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary in the San Francisco Bay Area with our children. We choose this rental based on what it offered & the pictures of the home. We were not disappointed!! It was the perfect location to drive into San Francisco to explore the city but were able to come back to a quiet home to relax. It is cozy, comfortable and is well supplied with whatever you may need. The amenities were perfect. It is in walking distance to the downtown area of Mill Valley so we were able to walk around and explore. My son even found a skate park. The owner met us at the property to show us around. She was very helpful and nice. On the last day of our vacation my husband got sick and had to be hospitalized (he is well now). The owner was very accommodating and helpful in a stressful situation. We've never met before but the owner went above and beyond to help my family in providing a place to stay and an ear to listen even now checking on my husband. My family really appreciates the thoughtfulness and kind heart.

Really All That Is Promised And More

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful setting. Inside is full of great touches. Like a Bluetooth Stereo Amplifier that easily connects to your phone (hold the blue lighted button down to scan for devices). I used it for web streamed music from my phone to the Stereo Receiver / Amplifier.

I also charged my Tesla with my mobile connector run through the window with a NEMA connector (old style 3 prong dryer adapter).

I highly recommend the place. The owner is very nice too, which makes it very personal.

Great find close to downtown Mill Valley.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this rental for three days. We were impressed with the communication and graciousness of Katy who manages the rental. The place easily accommodated my wife and are three traveling kids. We walked in each day to downtown Mill Valley for meals and like not having to use the car to check out the downtown.

We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Beautiful relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We had a really wonderful stay. The cottage had all the amenities and nicely decorated. The location was just perfect to get to downtown MillValley as well to Muir Woods. The owners are really nice and helpful. They were so kind to call and tell us that my 5 year old left her favorite blanket behind and mailed it to us. It was a nice place to read, have a glass of wine and just decompress. We will happily stay there again.
