Overview

Almonte Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This is a newly remodeled apartment that is a self-contained and private unit within a large house. In Tam Valley, this spacious and attractive apartment is nestled in the trees - yet bright and conveniently located. Every window looks out onto greenery. It is 600 sq. feet, with its own washer and dryer, 42' flat screen TV with premium cable hookup, Blu-ray DVD player, and wi-fi. It has a private entrance that leads to a large covered deck surrounded by greenery. The tiled bathroom has a king-size tub with shower that also looks out onto trees. An extra person can be accommodated on a very comfortable, inflatable twin bed that is raised off the floor in the living room area.

This apartment is 10 minutes from Mt. Tamalpais, and many glorious hiking trails; 20 minutes from Stinson Beach; 30 minutes from Point Reyes National Seashore; 15 minutes from San Francisco and ocean beaches, and 40 minutes away from the heart of Wine Country.

About The Owner

We have lived in this house for 23 years. We love the area because it is so green and quiet yet close to everything. Which is also why our guests love it. We were married in this house (22 years ago) and it has seen a lot of great occasions since then. Deborah is a San Francisco native and I am from London, England.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1990

Why The Owner chose California

When our daughter and grandson moved from here down to Los Angeles, we realized that the house was just too big for the two of us. After many years of thinking about it we decided to create a guest apartment. We have both traveled a lot and we wanted to create a vacation get-away that WE would love to stay in. Hopefully - according to our guests - we've done that.

What makes this apartment unique

We never get tired of the trees, greenery and fresh air that we are fortunate enough to enjoy year round. Because we are both city people who love the outdoors, easy accessibility to San Francisco, mountain hikes and beaches has made this the perfect place to live - and we don't plan on moving anytime soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was so spacious and cozy. It was the perfect place to retreat to while enjoying the comforts of home. The bed was to die for, and the decor so warm and inviting. It was really hard to leave, and I can't wait to come back again soon.

Perfect Get-Away Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Mill Valley was absolutely perfect!

From the moment we walked into the space, we felt welcomed. The layout and furnishings definitely provided a very warm and inviting feel. We had everything we needed to make this get-away absolutely comfortable as well as serviceable.

Although this was a business related stay, it felt like a lovely vacation in a secluded, beautiful and soothing corner of the world. Our hosts clearly cared about our comfort and they were more than successful in providing just what we needed.

We look forward to a return visit!

Restful and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful one bedroom. It is clean and spacious with a good sized kitchen. Keith and Debra were warm and inviting hosts. It is a convenient drive to the both San Francisco and Sausalito. It was very quiet and peaceful and a great retreat after a day of sightseeing. I would highly recommend it!!!!

lovely, cozy, and fabulous

The tub was absolutely to die for -- I have never been in such a glorious bath tub. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the bedroom window looked out on such glorious trees! This place was a true gem.

Space was as advertised and was just perfect for our visit to Mill Valley.

  • 5 of 5

"Just right" was what we kept saying about our four day stay. Comfortable, clean, and convenient made it "just right" for the two of us. Will add this to our small list of area retreats.

Comfy place to stay while visiting San Francisco area!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this Mill Valley location was fantastic! Convenient to the San Fran area over the Golden Gate Bridge. Also, convenient to wine country, a quick drive to Sacramento, and a scenic drive to Point Reyes National Seashore and the Pacific Coast Highway North! We did it all from this one location. The owners were very accommodating and gave very good instructions for getting to and into the apartment. Would recommend this location to anyone looking for a place close to San Francisco area!

Everything as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four days as part of a northern California vacation. The apartment is very clean (a high priority for me), everything is in good shape, and the furniture and bed are very comfortable. The space is a good size for a couple or family of three. We had everything we needed to make breakfast and simple dinners. As noted in the description, you do have to go down stairs to get to the apartment and there are two steps within the apartment, neither of which were a problem for us. The other apartment was unoccupied, so it was very quiet. The location is very good as well, with easy access to San Francisco, the Muir Woods, and other coastal sites.
