About Julie Austin

We are the owners of a property that has a long, successful history here in Mill Valley. We intend to keep the good times rolling by offering the best service and amenities in the Bay Area!

Julie Austin purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Julie Austin chose Mill Valley

We chose this property for the same reasons you will. The property is GORGEOUS (with a capital G)! The vacation rental has a feeling of tranquility, of serenity, but has the appeal of also being close to anything you can imagine! Want to go to historic Muir Woods? You'll be 15 minutes from the entrance. Want night life and great shopping? Either drive your car or take the bus (1 block away) to Union Square in downtown San Francisco, 20 minutes away.

What makes this cottage unique

The lovely unit has an expansive front porch, where you'll enter the home and be in the glow of the living room skylight. If it's chilly, start a fire in the wood-burning fireplace. Kick off your shoes and go onto the private back flagstone patio, where you'll be surrounded by rose bushes and bird houses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for 3 nights at the cottage, and we had a great experience. The place was so cute, and decorated really well. It was super clean and quiet, and the bed was great! There are instructions for all the tvs and appliances (we are really bad with tvs, so it helped), and both tvs had full movie channels. It was cool to have that at the end of sightseeing.

Julie was so nice, and so helpful, but was only there when we needed her - she didn't hover :)

Perfect Place Close to San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenage sons spent three nights here and it worked out perfectly. Very easy drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into the City, or even shorter drive to the parks north of town. The unit was well set up and they were very responsive to any questions.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had the joy of staying at this property over the New Year. It is wonderful, and extremely cozy! Very, very clean, and everything about it makes you feel you have a home away from home. Julie, the owner went out of her way to provide wood for the fireplace, and snacks that were there upon our arrival. She even purchased us a bottle of wine for our troubles of not being able to find the directions (my fault!) Just minutes from the Muir Woods...which is a must see... and minutes away from San Francisco...you can't beat this location. You feel you are in a remote area, however, you're actually close to everything! We spent a couple days in San Francisco, and spent a day at the Muir Woods. Lovely, lovely home, and we can't wait to return! Thank you Julie! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

There's lots to like about this place

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal rental. The place is exactly as portrayed in the photos. The owner lives next door, which made it convenient for key pick up and for leaving, and she was never intrusive.

Lots of thoughtful touches:

The cabinets in the kitchen all had labels identifying the contents, which made it very easy to find what we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the equipment we could have wanted, including an electric tea pot and a coffee maker.

The owner very thoughtfully had asked about our favorite snacks and had stocked them for us. She also offered to get us firewood for the fireplace, but we opted not to use it.

We were there during a cold spell, so couldn't take advantage of the lovely patio in the back or the seating on the front porch.

It is possible to walk to a little center with restaurants, and it is very easy to use Uber to get to places further out.

The owner has the place loaded with great books and there are also DVDs (We used the books, not the DVDs, so I can't comment on them).

Two things to consider:

The second bedroom has a pull out couch that some might not find as comfortable as a bed.

Parking is limited to one car, and the driveway is quite steep.

It was a wonderful stay and met out needs. Owner is terrific.

All the comforts of home and more!

  • 5 of 5

We found the place to be spacious, warm and cozy with high ceilings, skylights and even a wood burning fireplace.  The pull out bed is a modernized design and extremely comfortable, the kitchen was large, modern, fully equipped and stocked with helpful items such as oil, vinegar, spices and sugar.  The balcony gave us a wonderful view of the surrounding area.  It was very well located, close to all major attractions and the owner was graciously accommodating and very helpful. We highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back!!

California escape

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property with all the comforts of home in a rolling hillside setting. Located close to everything in the bay area 7 minutes to the Golden Gate and Sauslito, about 15 minutes to Fisherman Warf, 10 minutes to Muir Woods, and lest then an hour to wine country. The condo was clean, and had everything you would need to be comfortable in a very quiet location. The owners we very helpful with our arrangements. I would recommend this property to everyone and we will without a doubt use this property again when we are in the bay area.

Our property is in the most ideal location. We are situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood, walking distance from a gorgeous park. We are also 7 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and 10 from San Francisco proper! We have every possible recreational activity, so a guest can be alone in Muir Woods, or in the middle of Union Square!
