About Alice

Working professionals in a beautiful home.1960s brought each of us separately to UC Berkeley. We have always had a houseful of people through the years, as we are very social. Now going into our second year owning a vrbo has proven to be an educational and satisfyingly experience. We look forward to this year to see who finds our lovely spot and enriches our and their life experience!

Alice purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Alice chose Mill Valley

When we first set eyes on this house and property, we knew that we wanted to own it. However, the owner then was not quite ready to sell. It took him more than a year to decide to do it!We have made the house more beautiful with all modern amenities.There is never a day goes by when we do not look around us and realize how lucky we are to be here! Pristine and private! Come share a bit of paradise with us.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is attached to 45 acres of Marin County Open Space which affords total privacy and quiet.

Special neighborhood. Road connects to trails all over Marin County--- an area famous for hiking and biking paths

This is a welcoming refuge.

We traveled to Mill Valley to visit our daughter and grandchildren and this time we rented this lovely apartment in the hills above the MV golf course. While small, this home away from home is complete with a terrific bathroom, a comfortable bedroom with high-end sheets and pillows, plenty of closet space, and a neat little kitchen/dining/sitting area. And I haven't even mentioned the extraordinary view of the hills and the beautiful garden complete with a swimming pool and hummingbirds galore. There were flowers in bloom everywhere, and best of all, peace and quiet. Our hosts could not have been nicer and more considerate. They made the visit special, by stocking our fridge with expensive cheeses and wines as well as eggs, bacon, juices, milk and granolas. The fabulous shower was stocked with lovely shampoos and conditioners and special soaps. My husband commented on the high quality of the towels....really, we've been to some 5 stars hotels that weren't as nice! Alice and Michael were fun to meet, and full of helpful information. All in all, our VRBO was an oasis of calm which was a blessing after the boisterous fun of being with 4 active kids.

Magical Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Mill Valley has somehow managed to hold onto some of the fairytale
quality I saw in it when I first visited in 1970, despite becoming
incredibly more expensive. Alice and Michael's rental apartment has
some of that magical quality. High up a steep canyon there isn't a
hint of traffic noise. From the apartment you can't even see any other
houses. An array of hiking trails start a one minute walk up the hill,
from a flat path with views of San Francisco to a seriously aerobic
jaunt even higher up he flanks of Mount Tam.

A major perk of the apartment is getting to know Alice and Michael -
warm, interesting people who we now consider friends. Like some of the
other reviewers we are relocating to the Bay Area from the East Coast,
and found Alice and Michael both very helpful in beginning to make the
transition.

The apartment is clean and comfy. Our only complaints are that is a
little on the small side, but we had complete access to the very large unused living room just adjacent complete with a big screen TV. And like every apartment we have ever rented
on VRBO, the kitchen came a little understocked with items like pan
lids (Alice was immediately responsive to this problem, as with any
others we had.) Also, we can't afford to actually live in Mill
Valley, but that's not Alice and Michael's fault.

A magical place!

  • 5 of 5
I had the most wonderful experience staying here while I transitioned from Austin to San Francisco. I can't think of a better place to spend time in the Bay Area. The home and the setting are paradise, while still being close to downtown Mill Valley, San Francisco and all that Marin County has to offer - hiking, shopping, fabulous dining, running and cycling trails, and much more.

The apartment is absolute perfection - I've gotten to wake up every morning to a lovely garden terrace full of flowers in bloom. The kitchen and living area are the perfect size and the bedroom is as comfortable as can be. The setting is nice and quiet and just spectacularly beautiful. I seriously don't want to leave!

Alice and Michael are the most gracious hosts imaginable, they've been incredibly helpful whenever I've needed anything.

I couldn't recommend this apartment any more, it's simply magical!

Best kept hid away & secret in Marin!

This place is a real Shangri La located in the scenic hills of Mill Valley. This peaceful oasis overlooks a sea of green (forest), with hummingbirds zipping about and hawks flying above. You'll feel like you are in the country even though you are minutes from some of the best restaurants and shopping in the US. You have everything you need to be perfectly taken care of, including a full kitchen, large refrigerator, gas stove, etc. Bedroom is cozy and shower is great, beautiful fixtures everywhere. Alice (the owner) has a beautiful design aesthetic and it shows!

Another great reason to visit the place is to meet Alice & Michael, your hosts, who are the most gracious, generous and interesting people you'll meet on your trip! Our refrigerator was stocked with local delicacies (local cheese, fresh OJ, coffee & coffee grinder, wine) - everything you need to get you through a breakfast and 5pm snack. They have become good friends and we look forward to keeping in touch as we relocate here to the Bay Area.

Did I mention the amazing hiking right from the door step? If you like to start your day with views of Mt. Tam, then just a few feet outside your door step are several trails that will give you gorgeous views of the entire Bay Area (including the skyline of San Francisco).

They also have the sweetest Westie in the world, and if you're lucky, you'll get to see her.

I highly recommend this place as a quiet oasis for a single or couple traveling, with excellent access to the city. You do need a car to access it the property.

I’d give more stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Alice and Michaels house in Mill Valley for 7 weeks from Oct - Dec 2013 while our own MV house was being remodeled.

Quite simply, we are still marveling as to how lucky we were to find them and their perfect, cozy one bedroom apartment. The place is situated in the most beautiful, sunny, quiet and cozy setting, overlooking gorgeous landscaped gardens and a well tended pool. The neighborhood is so quiet and friendly with the most beautiful hiking trails just 3 minutes walk up the road. The apartment is tastefully decorated and has everything you’ll need, including a new spacious fridge and oven and is impeccably clean. This is not just a house, its a loved home.

Alice and Michael are true hosts, they are the warmest most thoughtful couple and went above and beyond making sure we felt welcome and comfortable. We are going to miss them and feel like we’ve made lifelong friends in this process, we can’t wait to return the hospitality and welcome them to our home!

The apartment itself is conveniently located, minutes to downtown Mill Valley, Wholefoods and the Freeway. You could not ask for a better place to stay, I’d give more stars if I could!

Romantic Hideway

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location, quiet and sunny, it felt like we had really gotten away from it all, but still close to town; beautiful garden and pool, very private, fun to use the outdoor shower. It was all we needed and so much more; high end linens and very well appointed kitchen. Perfect to have our own romantic hideaway while visiting family in Mill Valley and friends in San Francisco. We looking forward to staying here again on our next trip! thank you, Alice!
