Guestbook comments from the owner
Sonja and Rainer,

Thank you very much for the use of your wonderful home. Great location and getting to the wedding venue in SF was very easy.

Comfortable beds, lovely gardens. Picked a few ripe tomatoes and put them in your refrigerator. We enjoyed our stay,

We have been residence of Mill Valley since 1977. We are of European decent..English, Swedish, German and Spanish speaking. We have really enjoyed having guests from all over the world. We always try to be certain that our guests are happy with our rental. We check in with you the day after your arrival and always answer any questions that you have in a prompt manner.

Sonja Dohse purchased this house in 1977

When we lived in San Francisco, we would come to Marin frequently. When ever we came to Mill Valley, we would always say, 'I would really like to live in Mill Valley'. We are so happy that we made the choice to move to Mill Valley...it is really a special place.

The house is surrounded by beautiful garden and full of light coming in from the outside. When you are here you feel like you are at a home with all of the comforts that a home offers. Every morning after I get up, I get my cup of coffee and walk around the house to enjoy the gardens.

SUNNY MILL VALLEY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week stay and were thankful for the ability to arrive before 10a.m. as we were on an international flight. Sonja and Rainer were fantastic with providing information about the area and plenty of helpful hints.

We enjoyed the beautiful yard and had a pleasant sunny stay. The kitchen was well equipped with gas stove. We comfortably slept 4 people downstairs and 2 upstairs.

The location was convenient and we actually preferred being outside of the San Francisco area -- opting to take a ferry ride into downtown from Sausalito.

Owner's Response: Dear Marie and Family, Thank you for pointing out that one of the benefits of staying in Mill Valley is the beautiful ferry ride to San Francisco. We do not have a check-in or check-out time and we always try to accommodate our guests. It is it a long trip from Hong Kong and I know that I would want to get settled in as soon as possible. Hopefully, you will consider our rental if you are in the Bay Area again.

GREAT PLACE FOR A REUNION

  • 5 of 5
My four college roommates and I were looking for a place to have a 45 year college reunion and this spot in Mill Valley was perfect. We were located centrally with easy access to the freeway which made trips to SF State (alma mater) easy. It also was a short drive up into the wine country of Sonoma. The house is right on Highway 1 near the town center so we had quick access to Stinson Beach and Point Reyes.

I went for daily early morning walks on the nearby paved trail that brought me into Sausolito to the south and to the Dog Park to the north.

Meanwhile, the 5 adult men each had their private bedrooms, including mine which was at the outside cottage.

Meals were taken at the many fine restaurants in the area but we also got a hold of two other former classmates and had a sit down dinner for seven one night in the spacious dining room.

All in all, a great time, a great place...and I give it a great recommendation.

THE VACATION OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5
When my father turned 70, we decided to go on a vacation, together with my sister and mother. It was a long flight from Sweden, but definitly worth it!

We had a marvelous week - real nice weather and a lot of interesting places to see.

We stayed at Sonjas and Rainers house and is was perfect. Good equipment, great rooms and the perfect placement - 15 minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge, 15 minutes to Muir Woods, 45 minutes to Wine Country.

But I have to say that the best thing about choosing Sonja and Rainer, was their friendliness! They helped us with tips and links to things we were interested in - hiking, Muir Woods, stores near by, Wine Country etc. Very fast and very friendly. Thank you for that!

My father told me on the way home that this was the best vacation he's ever had.

THE PERFECT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been more delighted. The house was well equipped, well-maintained, a fabulous location, extremely clean and comfortable. We took the bus into the city instead of dealing with parking and traffic.
Sonja was a gem to deal with.
We will definitely return to this piece of heaven again.

PERFECT FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I rented Sonja & Ranier’s house for family visiting for my daughter’s wedding in June. As the title states, it was the perfect family retreat. Shortly after we got our family settled they received a phone call from Sonja checking in to make sure they were comfortable and ask if they needed anything - anything that wasn’t already available in their well-stocked home. The house is nicely laid out and opens up to a beautifully maintained garden. It is the perfect place to entertain guests which we took advantage of by having a little brunch get together (about 20 people) the morning after the wedding. The separate unit was perfect for a cousin who likes her “alone time” and she really enjoyed using the hot tub after a long bike ride. The stairs to the master bedroom were a bit too steep for my 88 year old mother-in-law but there are plenty of main floor sleeping options so she wasn’t disappointed. The house is conveniently located, equal distance from downtown and the freeway. Sonja called again the day before my family left to make sure everyone enjoyed their visit and to discuss returning the deposit. I would definitely recommend Sonja & Ranier’s home to anyone visiting Mill Valley - staying in a real home is so much better than staying in a hotel room!
