Cozy, private and a beautiful view... we loved it!
A real Haven
We had a profoundly satisfying stay with our hosts, in their meticulously prepared cottage. Debra was generous in response to our requests for guidance to make the most of our visit through a region that was new to us, and which is filled with destinations of surreal beauty and tranquility. Seeing across a hollow a magnificent buck with a full rack of antlers, grazing quietly on a hillside perhaps 200 ft away epitomized what we found at every turn. The owners' description of the overall experience seems deliberately understated. We thought this would be a little side-adventure before visiting family in SanFran, but we soon realized we had been given a fresh sense of quiet intimacy and connection to nature. We not only loved Mill Valley -- why hadn't we heard of it before!? -- with its wonderful restaurants and shops, but also we set out, with our host's guidance, to Stinson Beach, Limontour Beach and elsewhere. Topping it off, Debra's suggestion we consider dropping our car off in MValley and taking the ferry to SF led to a brief, but wonderful trip across the bay. We'll be recommending this to friends and family, for sure.
Lovely cottage in mill valley!
Debra was a gem greeting us late at night as we arrived- place is adorable - like your in a tree house! Thank you for coffee with cream and the banana bread—-hand baked!! She was also very knowledgeable about Muir Woods and used her specific guide for our hike.... thank you !!
Perfect, private getaway!
My husband and I can't say enough wonderful things about Debra's beautiful cottage! It was off the beaten path, private and quiet, yet close enough to all modern conveniences. A nature-lover's dream! The little cottage was perfectly decorated, immaculately clean, and the bed was SOOO comfortable. We loved having coffee and Debra's delicious homemade banana bread on the private deck in the mornings, watching the hummingbirds zip through the treetops. A deer even greeted us one morning, peering into the kitchen!
Debra was the perfect hostess, giving us plenty of privacy, but was also so helpful with hiking, biking and restaurant recommendations. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay and felt more like an old friend or member of the family, rather than someone we'd just met. We so appreciate all of Debra and Will's hospitality, plus their dog Early is sweet and adorable! We would LOVE to come back again!
A great cottage in a fantastic location.
My wife and I had a fully enjoyable stay at Debra's Mill Valley cottage, located near her home. The cottage was new and very comfortable. There is an adjacent deck as well as a patio - both with nice views and comfortable furniture. The cottage had nice appliances and plenty of cookware. The backyard of the property is simply amazing.
There is plenty of great hikes available near the property. The town of Mill Valley is walking distance is a very nice, upscale town with convenient restaurants and shopping.
