About Robert

We are Elizabeth, Robert & Ben, originally from Chicago and fell in love with Mill Valley when we first came here five years ago. Neighborhood is lovely, location is perfect--it's paradise. We are renting our home as we need to live in the East Bay of San Francisco for work for the next year or two.

Robert purchased this house in 2010

Why Robert chose Mill Valley

This home was previously owned by a couple for 50 years. They built the most amazing gardens and kept the house well maintained. One peek at Mill Valley, and all the town has to offer in this in-town location and you'll understand why we fell in love with this house. Lots of steps, but worth the climb.

What makes this house unique

It's all charm, and perfect location. Beautiful outdoor nooks and EVERYONE loves this house and how easy it is to get to the best hiking, eating, and entertainment around. 12 miles to SF, 5 or so to the beach and hiking out the door. Originally our home was a cottage, built before the Golden Gate Bridge--much of the uniqueness of the home remains. Great kitchen and dinning area--perfect for families, entertaining, solitude.

Family gathering

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a charming hillside neighborhood and very convenient for walking to downtown Mill Valley. The matresses were comfortable and the bathrooms completely updated. An office with a printer off the livingroom was nice to have. Though not luxurious the furnishings were adequate and the house was very clean, spacious and sunny with a nice view.

Lovely Home!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and three teenagers enjoyed our stay at this unique old house! My husband recently had knee surgery and was skipping his physical therapy appointments while on vacation, so we figured the steps were his therapy! The owner was very responsive to a couple of questions, and we had no issues during our stay. Beautiful and comfortable kitchen - we enjoyed cooking a big Italian meal on New Years Eve! FABULOUS Muir Woods is just a few minutes away. Overall... it was fun and I'd recommend it. Beware of the steps... and the parking if you've rented a honkin' Chevy Tahoe... but other than that and the fact that they need a good old fashioned coffee maker... GO! :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the suggestion! We now do have an old fashion coffee maker, along with a press pot and italian perculator.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Mill Valley for a family wedding and were very happy to stay in such a wonderful house. There were a lot of stairs, but that is part of the charm of Mill Valley, with all of the homes tucked away in the hills. The house itself was beautiful and very well appointed with all that we needed. It was very nice that it was easy walking distance to downtown Mill Valley so we could go out to dinner and drinks without having to worry about driving. The owner was very friendly and available, though there was never a reason to call. Overall, I would definitely return for a future stay.

Pleasant, Clean house in Mill Valle

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time in this house when we visited for a family wedding in Mill Valley. The house was clean, well updated and the kitchen is well stocked with anything you would need for fixing your own meals. The house is a quick walk from downtown Mill Valley. A great option for anyone, as long as you're ok with stairs! It is quite a walk up from the street to the house, but the view from the porch makes the trek well worth it.

Owner's Response: Alas, we have not been able to reduce the number of stairs, but have recently redone the stairs and they are now smooth, evenly spaced, concrete and, we think, much easier to walk up. Not an issue for children as the steps meander up the hill, but not above it. We usually leave some treats in the house to indulge in after the calories burnt on going up a few flights.

Lovely home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay! We were 2 families, 6 people total, including 2 seventeen year-old girls. We rented this home for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed much longer! The location in Mill Valley was perfect - nestled cozily in the hills, yet within walking distance to downtown. The house itself is lovely - a wonderful spacious feeling within, crisp hardwood floors, and scenic views. The house is meticulously clean and well-maintained.The bedrooms are also very spacious, with the exception of 1 smaller bedroom containing a built- in bed which had the feel of a cozy nook. We all found our mattresses very comfortable. A couple of mornings we sat at the dining table drinking our coffee with views of the sunrise before us! The house was well-stocked, and seemed as though every detail had been thought of for visitors. Communication with Beth was easy and her responses were prompt. We appreciated her list of things to do and favorite eats around town. We absolutely recommend this experience to future travelers, and Beth, you may want to consider posting new interior photos, because while we perceived this home as "charming" when we booked it, the photos do not fully convey how lovely, spacious, and delightful, it truly is!!!

Such a wonderful house full of character and plenty of space in great location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this place for my family, we had 9 people, 6 adults and 3 children and we all felt like we had plenty of space. The kitchen is fully stocked with every pot/pan/dish you would ever need to make a meal. The house is located on a hill, has wonderful views and is a short drive to San fran, golden gate bridge, Mt Tam, Muir Woods, Muir Beach, Stinson beach, many tourist places. We walked from the house into town for a few meals, such a lovely place. We really enjoyed our stay here. The only downside, is that there are 2 flights of stairs to climb to get into the house, so I would not recommend this for the elderly or anyone needing handicap access. For us, that was not a problem. I absolutely recommend this place!

Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais.

Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.

Historical Mill Valley has a unique village charm as well as its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement.

Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre recently revived, although in existence since 1915. Re-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall right down town.

Mill Valley is surrounded by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Sea Shore. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.
