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.

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.

Owner very conscientious with all details, even down to a Safeway card and flyer for us. Highly recommend this home away from home.

Perfect place to stay when visiting the Bay area.

  • 5 of 5
We are from Kansas and were super excited to plan a trip to San Francisco over the Fourth of July this past summer. The dilemma was where to stay. After hours of searching, I came across Sonja's home and one other's in the Mill Valley area. I requested information from them both, and by the morning I had a reply from them both. One was a one sentence email simply stating that their property was available. The other was a reply from Sonja about her beautiful home, and family. She even sent me quite a few pictures giving me a perfect feel for home. She and I also spoke over the phone many times. We had debated between a hotel in the city or a home a little outside the city. We decided on this home, because we would have space to relax and enjoy for very close to the same price we could accommodate our family of five in the city at a small hotel room. We do not regret that decision. The drive from her home to the city was truly only about 10 minutes over the Golden Gate Bridge, and to be honest, we usually took the ferry from Sausalito over to the city and just walked or used public transportation to get around. Everyone had their own bed, and having two bathrooms and a kitchen was just perfect. Their back yard is beautifully landscaped, and is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy her beautiful flowers. Sonja went out of her way to give us any information we needed to help plan our trip. I had a couple questions about various activities we were planning, and I would email her to get her input. I really trusted what she had to say, because she has lived in the area for 20+ years and she was so willing to help. I would highly recommend considering this rental in Mill Valley if you plan on visiting the San Francisco area.

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa and Family.
Thank you for your detailed review of your stay at our rental and for the pointing out the information about the Ferry Service, our proximity to San Francisco and the public transportation. From you, I learned that the Point Reyes Light house is open at night the first and third Saturday, June through August, for a night lighting of the light house. Thank you for that! I was impressed with all of the research that you did for your vacation in the Bay Area.

Mill Valley Rental

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to the SFO/Napa Valley area. The house is beautifully maintained and provided us all the comforts of home. It was conveniently located to many of the areas we wanted to visit (San Francisco, Sausalito, Muir Woods, Napa and Sonoma Valley. The owners of the home were wonderful, provided us information on the area as well as attractions that may be of interest and were very responsive to any questions we had. The rental process was very easy and the security/breakage deposit was returned to us promptly upon our departure. We highly recommend this home and will definitely rent again should we retun to the San Francisco/Napa Valley area.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful week in the San Francisco area. The house location was perfect for exploring wine country, the coast and the city. All the home amenities were comfortable for the 7 of us. We could not imagine having to coordinate schedules for 4 seniors and 3 adults if we had chosen to stay in a hotel. This was the perfect solution and we could not be more pleased with the location, home and interaction with the homeowners. We left the home in great condition, as we found it, and our deposit was returned very timely.

home in the garden

  • 4 of 5
This house has all the amenities and it is close to site seeing and local attractions. There is a great garden that provides fresh veggies and flowers to enjoy. The local birds come and spend time in the bath or sipping the nectar. Inside, the kitchen has enough space for work and cooking large meals. The dining area provides a large table to work or play on (I brought all my art supplies). And there are many areas to chose from for sleeping.
