Great for a single or a couple. Located in an adult neighborhood of custom homes set in the hills just above the City and the Bay. Views are of the Bay in a sunny, lovely Wooded setting of Mill Valley. You will feel like you are miles away from the hustle bustle, yet if you walk or drive for just a few minutes, all the activities that make the Bay Area so special, are available to you. Not suitable for hosting family gatherings: if you have family living in the area, need to entertain at their homes. Located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood of custom homes, it is not in a tract subdivision : It's very quiet like being in the country yet it is located just minutes from all conveniences: 5 minutes to Sausalito and Tiburon, 20 minutes to Union Square San Francisco, 10 minutes to the Ross Valley,


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I took a few days for mental health and found the perfect place to stay. Maria was a gracious host and had milk, juice, bagels in the fridge and a bowl of fresh fruit on the table when I arrived. The apartment was exactly as described and picture perfect. The deck was a great place to sit in the evening to read and relax. A short hike will take you to Hawk Hill which provides a great scenic overlook. My security deposit arrived just a couple of days after I returned home. Everything was a short distance from the apartment and I am working hard on a return trip as soon as possible!

We absolutely loved our stay here. Very nicely decorated and the view was incredible! Especially enjoyed early mornings drinking coffee on the deck taking in the view. We would definately stay here again!

Incredible view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this lovely, well appointed one bedroom apartment on a recent visit to San Francisco. The apartment feels larger than it is, as the owner has done a great job utilizing & decorating the space. The bathroom is a decent size for two people with shower/bath combo. The king size bed is very comfortable and plenty of room in closet & dresser for storage. The kitchen area is also very adequate and stocked with the essentials. The area from the landing where you park as you make your way down the stairs to the apartment is very lush and inviting. However, none of this compares to the amazing views from your deck off the kitchen of the apartment. We had coffee there every morning & wine in the evening. We saw many deer right below us and even walking right beside the deck one morning which was super cool.

The apartment was located in Mill Valley which is a very nice area not far from Sausalito or downtown San Francisco. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we return to the area. Thank you Maria for sharing your lovely home with us.
