BOHEMIAN MILL VALLEY SHANGRI-LA 3BLKS TO DOWNTOWN

Mill Valley House Rental Photos and Description

Super Cool rental w/ great rates & specials 4 musicians, foreigners, & students

Classic Mill Valley Home- Well loved, great place that has been enjoyed by many famous people. It is on the sunny side of Mill Valley w/ ridgeline views to Sausalito & San Francisco. Features a Chef's gourmet kitchen stocked with a wide variety of spices, appliances & cooking implements.

It is located on walk path #69, 3mins from Bungalow 44 & a very short 3 block walk from downtown Mill Valley, restaurants, Mt. Tamalpais hiking/biking/running trails, yoga studios, grocery stores, etc. public tennis courts and a golf course are less than ~1/2 mile away, 3 blocks to the Golden Gate Transit bus/ferry which takes you into San Francisco, which is only ~10 miles away.

Fuschia, bouganvilla, impatiens, lobelia, mexican sage, passion flower, yellow trumpet flowers, & other interesting plants greet you as you enter the property. the vegetable garden has tomatoes, basil, cilantro, peppers, chives, swiss chard, kale, and a variety of lettuces.

The warm south facing front sun deck is beautifully refinished and has teak avignon deck chairs, patio heaters, gas & charcoal bbq's, including an Indonesian Mosaic tiled Kamado BBQ, hummingbird feeders, and a hammock. The large backyard has climbing roses, passion flowers, fresh herbs, 3 kinds of mint, lemon balm, veggies, bird feeders, and a nice 16 jet hot tub.

The living room is wood beamed with high a high ceiling and 2 large skylights. it has Wi-Fi, a Samsung Smart TV, Yamaha surround sound system, Dish Satellite TV and Comcast Cable systems, a wood burning fireplace insert, 2+ cords of wood and opens onto the front sundeck.

The big well equipped island kitchen has many high end kitchen appliances, side by side refrigerator w/ ice maker, trash compactor, lots of cabinets for storage. the kitchen/refrigerator/freezer is very well stocked w/ fresh veggies/fruit/cheeses/sea food/meats and all kinds of spices and supplies. if you don't want to shop, we can easily provide for you 

The Master bedroom has a full wall of closet space, windows on 2 sides, and is very good to sleep in. The front garden bedroom offers morning sun and birds chirping. The bathroom has a heat lamp, shower/tub combo with excellent water pressure and a nice shower head.

There is a custom bike rack and washer & dryer in house. the kitchen is well stocked with most items a gourmet chef would require. Feel free to use what you need and replace what you think is proper.

Note: The base rental rate for 1 person includes use of the Master Bedroom, house, hot tub, kitchen, shared bathroom, sundeck, and light breakfast-coffee or tea, toast, jam, and fresh fruit. The Master Bedroom's king size bed easily accommodates 2 people. On occasion, when i'm on vacation, the whole house, which includes the front garden bedroom can be rented at a higher rate. otherwise, i've endeavored to make this a reasonably priced share with all the amenities of home. If more than 2 people are in your group, i can easily accommodate them with a deluxe queen size air mattress with nice bedding in the living room or, weather permitting, on the front sundeck.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I had an awesome experience at Todd's spacious Mill Valley getaway! The room was sizeable and clean. The kitchen usable and stocked. And plenty of common space to hang out, both indoors and outdoors. Todd was a very generous and knowledgeable host. I would come back here again if I were ever in Mill Valley. Bonus perks: - beautiful views of Mt. Tamalpais, the Marin Highlands, and even the city from an awesome deck - BBQs and Hot Tub available - Ample parking within 1-2 block walk This is a great place to have as your base for either a long weekend or a multi-day excursion. Literally a 15-20 minute drive from SF (golden gate bridge).

BARE FEET & ALL THE KALE YOU CAN EAT

Bare feet & all the kale you can eat
  • 4 of 5
This is a perfect location for exploring the architectural wonderland of Mill Valley, the natural beauty of Muir Woods, the nearby beaches, and beyond. It is an easy drive to SF and close to Sonoma County and points north if your trip includes such destinations. It has a king-sized bed AND a hot tub, not easy to find (affordably) in this area.

Please note that this is a shared property; the owner lives on site and you do share a bathroom with the owner. As long as you are comfortable with that, the amenities and location are great. The owner is an expert native who can guide you to desirable destinations as much as you wish, but is equally willing to stay out of your way. It is pretty easy to find "roomate rhythm" with this congenial owner,
and his love of his location will only enhance your travels.
