PERFECT MARIN LOCATION - CLOSE TO EVERYTHING - LARKSPUR/CORTE MADERA

Mill Valley House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful, sunny home offers wonderful comfort, privacy, indoor-outdoor living as well as great walking accessibility to the Marin County villages of Larkspur and Corte Madera. Very nearby are hiking trails, walking and bike paths, public tennis courts, cafes, restaurants and much more. Highway 101 is just a mile away with the Golden Gate Bridge 8 miles to the south and Sonoma/Napa Wine Country less than an hour to the north.

Put on your walkin' shoes or jump on your bike; head to the end of the short lane, turn left and in less than a mile you're in adorable downtown Larkspur where you can have a morning caffe latte at the award-winning, authentic Italian Patticceria Rulli, do a little shopping at the many boutiques and galleries; cycle on the bike trails, take a short -- or long -- hike and picnic on Mt. Tam. As the sun goes down you might want to have a Happy Hour cocktail at either The Left Bank, (a French bistro) or The Tavern at Lark Creek, (a Bradley Ogden restaurant). You could choose one of these spots for dinner or perhaps Picco for small plates or pizza or Fabrizio for pasta.

OR, you could turn right at the end of the lane and have breakfast or lunch at the Corte Madera Cafe, then go next door for a treatment at the luxurious Stellar Spa. Happy Hour could be spent at Rick's Wine Cellar followed by neighborhood Italian fare at Benissimo's or great pizza at Stefano's.

Our recently remodeled home is ideal for two couples or two adults traveling together. (Sorry, no children or animals.) It has two stories, extensive decking and a fully fenced, mature garden that includes a stand of redwood trees. The many flowering plants bring daily visits from hummingbirds and often fawns can be seen frolicking behind the fence from the master bedroom.

There are two bedrooms, an office, two full baths and one half bath/powder room in the home. The main living floor contains the living room and dining area, powder room, kitchen, office/library and master suite. French doors lead from the living room to the 'outdoor living room'. Weather permitting, this large, wonderful, private deck provides a place to read, visit with friends, as well as have cocktails and meals. The deck wraps around the house and is accessible from the master bedroom, as well.

KITCHEN: If you like to cook, this is your kitchen!!! There are granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, double ovens, a Wolf range top with heat lamps, all of the spices you can imagine and a pantry with almost any staple you will need. All-Clad LTD pots and pans are also provided. Outside is a four-burner Weber Summit gas grill. There is also a large collection of cookbooks from which to choose your recipes. Nearby are daily farmer's markets, awesome gourmet grocery stores, Whole Foods and excellent super markets.

MASTER SUITE: Contains a Cal-king size Tempur-Pedic bed, flat screen TV and a patio door that leads to a quiet garden deck with morning sun. The en suite Carrera marble master bath is a wonderful spot after a day of hiking, biking or touring Marin, Napa or San Francisco. It has a large spa shower, double sinks, heated mirrors, heated towel racks and in-floor heating.

OFFICE/LIBRARY: This custom designed room boasts two comfortable workspaces as well as an extensive library of books to borrow and read during your stay. File drawer space can be provided upon request.

GUEST SUITE: The downstairs of the home is devoted to a large, private and very comfortable guest suite. There is a sleeping area with a queen size bed, dresser, desk and chair. The seating area has a love seat, club chair, flat screen TV and walk-in closet. The bathroom has a large shower, lots of storage and in-floor heating. There is also a separate entrance, so privacy is complete.

ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS: There are four TV's in the house -- flat screen HD sets in the living room, master bedroom and guest suite as well as a small set in the kitchen to keep the cook entertained. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. Apple TV is installed on two of the TV's.

A Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home with our brother and sister-in-law. They stayed in the downstairs suite and we stayed in the master. Both couples were very happy with our accommodations and both beds were great. The linens are so wonderful that we can't wait to purchase the same sets for our beds at home! I spent hours walking the nearby trail and we spent many happy hours on the lovely deck. The home is beautiful and has most of what you will need. Leslie was generous to leave many necessary cooking items so that we didn't have to purchase large quantities of things we couldn't use in a week. The kitchen is fabulous as is the master bath. There are televisions in both bedrooms and the living room, with extensive cable channels. We were able to watch our Detroit Tigers play 3 of their games on the MLB channels. We enjoyed taking the Larkspur ferry into the city, and also the short drive to Napa. My husband and I found many local trails with Leslie's guidance. She and her husband were very responsive and not at all intrusive. We had a fabulous time and we can't wait to return. You won't regret renting this home!

Lovely vacation home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I rented this home for 2 weeks in December, & it was really a joy to stay there. Our son & his wife joined us for a week, occupying the lower level, and enjoying their own bedroom, sitting area, & bathroom. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated, & very well-equipped. The kitchen & pantry are such a delight; there is every gadget one could need, as well as a multitude of high quality cookware, bakeware, dishes, etc. The outdoor grill & large deck are wonderful, as is the master suite. The location of the home is absolutely terrific, on a very quiet street, but within walking distance of many very nice restaurants, shops, library, etc. The area is a delight for walkers, runners, hikers. There are many, many options for things to do in the area, & the wonderful owners provide a wealth of info on trails, dining, shopping. We would highly recommend the home & hope we can stay there again. Thank you for sharing your lovely abode!

A lovingly decorated gem

  • 5 of 5
We have spent many vacations in many different vacation homes. This house by far beats everything we have previously seen. Every detail was perfectly arranged and prepared.Detailed instruction for all electronics, personal recommendations for dining, grocery shopping, entertainment. A wide selection on maps and information on hiking trails,tourist information material.
The published pictures don´t really do the property justice, there is much more charm to the house than they can show. The wrap-around terrace is most relaxing at any time of the day, surrounded by plants birds and sometimes even deer.
The kitchen is a cooks heaven, extremely well equipped. In fact better equipped than some professional kitchens I have seen in small restaurants.
Ideally located the house is set back from the main road in a cul de sac. There is practically no street noise to be heard.

Thanks for having us, hope to be back next year!

This home is convenient to beaches, mountains, shopping and restaurants. It is clean, comfortable and "home away from home". The owners are great to work with and give the best directions, advice and suggestions to make your stay easy and memorable. We had 4 adults and were so comfortable. The kitchen and outdoor cooking was exceptional. Sparkling baths and comfortable beds. Views are wonderful and is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. If you want to relax and have a place that is easy access from SFO this is the spot for you. We want to return and thank the owners for their hospitality.
