Great location for Mill Valley Film Festival, Mill Valley Art Show, Dipsea Race, Sausalito Art Festival, 142 Throckmorton shows and events, weddings at the Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club! Lots of biking opportunities. Wonderful area to walk, bike, and hike. Easy access to public transportation in and out of San Francisco. Always nice to have a car but you can get by without one in this area.

Peaceful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The sycamore home invites the resident to relax and enjoy the calm environment. It is near a supermarket and the center of town, yet within the house, one feels far from the chaos of hectic schedules. Enjoy the serenity of the patio and forget all of your troubles!

Wonderful stay!

Lovely accommodation with great garden

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a two week break in this lovely home in Mill Valley. We found it an ideal base to visit this part of California. The house was very comfortable and had every thing that we needed. The garden was fantastic. It was wonderful to sit there on a hot afternoon and also to eat there in the evening. Can't praise the location and the facilities enough.

Great location, wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

It's such a gift to stay close to town in Mill Valley. The property is in a great neighborhood, surrounded by parks. And if you're a hiker or cyclist, close to the best trails and bike routes. Just minutes away from heart of Mill Valley where wonderful restaurants are available. The owner is very accommodating. The house is very quaint and inviting with a nice updated kitchen.

Great landlady!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several months while our house was being remodeled. Landlady is extremely accommodating and made sure we were comfortable... and the house was great, sunny, warm, near markets and restaurants and coffee spots... a great rental for short or long term.

Fantastic location and great backyard living!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a home base while visiting family and friends. We loved the back studio and used it as an office and getaway! Backyard area has comfortable furniture and nice umbrellas for shade -- lots of sun in the afternoon! We walked to Whole Foods for groceries and coffee almost every day. Kitchen is updated and super clean. Nice to be in an area with no parking problems. Loved the stay and plan to be back. Thanks for the hospitality.
