About Julie Austin

We are the new 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 :)

Superb

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in this wonderful place so close to San Fran. It was large enough for the 4 of us and exceptionally clean. Julie is a great host and her family was extremely friendly the couple of times we ran into them. The next time we are in the frisco area we will definitely stay here.

Great location near Muir Woods

  • 4 of 5
This was a lovely property in a great location. It was located in a quiet neighborhood, and had all the amenities we needed. The owner was good to work with, and helped us with our questions and requests. The property was very clean, and we enjoyed eating a meal out on the patio. The landscaping was pretty. My only complaint was a delay in getting our security deposit returned, which took about an hour of my time to resolve, but the owner was responsive in taking care of it once it was brought to her attention. If I was going to stay in Mill Valley, I would consider this property again.

We hit the jackpot with this cottage! It was exactly as pictured.. clean, comfortable with everything we needed. Comfy beds and great towels! It's minutes to whatever you're looking for; San Fran, Muir Woods, beaches, restaurants, the ferry.. quiet, private cottage with a great porch and lovely garden patio. I highly recommend it and would stay there again. Julie and her family were wonderful hosts!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
We were coming to San Francisco for a wedding. This house was great for us. We had 4 adults staying here. The accommodations were very comfortable. We we're close to the ferry into The city. We were not far from Muir Woods and there was a Safeway and a Starbucks nearby. We ran into the owner a few times. He was very friendly. Would definitely stay here again, if I am back in the area!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this place for 4 nights and it was great! Julie had EVERYTHING we needed and more! She was a tremendous hostess - answered our questions right away and even had our favorite drink and snack in the place when we arrived! That's "above and beyond!" The place was very clean and extremely nice. The location was great as well - close to San Fran but far enough away to be quiet and out of the hustle and bustle of the city. We loved it!

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!
