Why Hilde Kraemling chose Mill Valley
Mill Valley was voted by CNN to be one of the top ten most desirable places to live in the Nation: CNN/Money magazine noted ”VIP's in the film and music industries are flocking to what not so long ago was a hangout for artists and reformed hippies just 14 miles from the Golden Gate.' The magazine adds, 'Yet most residents are interested in maintaining the town's low-key, back-to-nature atmosphere. Think fleece and flip-flops, not fur and stilettos.' However, what sold us to Mill Valley was its unique location with close proximity to San Francisco, the ocean and Stinson Beach and its European 'walk and bike everywhere, shop in nice stores, eat in cute little restaurants and talk to your friendly neighbors' atmosphere. Being here is like living an everyday vacation with endless options for getaways and activities: Salmon watching or Hiking in Muir Woods, Whale Watching in Point Reyes, Sailing, Boating, Fishing, Biking, Riding, Golf, Surfen, Mount Tamalpais State Park, San Francisco Sight Seeing, Wine Tasting in Napa or Sonoma County, Skiing in Tahoe.....
What makes this Cottage unique
While staying at the cottage there is literally no need for a car: Everything in downtown Mill Valley is in close walking distance, even trails to Mount Tamalpais and bus stops to San Francisco or San Rafael are nearby. Enjoy outdoor living and relaxed, friendly people in Mill Valley.

Cute, quaint, quiet, and clean
The cottage is very nicely decorated and furnished. The location is quiet and private. The laundry area is located in a raised crawl space area that requires lifting a door and going down a few stairs, maybe this is common in California. We had a very nice stay.

Thank you for our favorite little getaway. We always love staying here. We will return!!!
Stunning cottage, perfect little town
I’m on my way home from an absolutely amazing stay at a VRBO property. While looking for a property I found the pictures and immediately fell in love. As with any rental, you hope that the pictures live up to the real thing. And boy did they. If anything, they didn’t convey the full charm that this cottage has. It’s perfectly secluded in a beautiful setting. The cottage is in the back of the owner’s residence, but not a part of the main house. The yard is full of fruit bearing citrus trees and bamboo that are obviously well maintained. Walking into cottage the first thing you notice is how homey and charming it is. But then you immediately notice how sparkling clean everything is. It is easily the cleanest property I’ve ever rented. The kitchen is very well stocked and the linens are soft and bountiful. The private patio space is surrounded by trees and plants, has a very nice table and chairs and a gas grill.
The owner is incredibly responsive. She answers your emails very quickly and comes across as friendly and helpful. The check in instructions were perfect and were matched by the print out waiting in the cottage that details everthing you need to know about the space and how everything works.
As mentioned in her listing, Hilde is happy to give you your space or meet you, whatever you choose. I was glad that we had the opportunity to meet her in person and tell her how much we loved the cottage.
Mill Valley is a lovely little town with all the amenities necessary for a relaxing get away for a few days. Our hope is that we are able to return for another visit in the summer or fall so that we can experience even more that both the town and the property have to offer.
Kathy, we love when our guests love their home away from home! Thank you so much for your nice review. You were delightful guests and we sure hope that you'll come back to visit us again!
