About the property

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 Almonte

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.

The perfect place for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay for 6 months so that we could take care of our grand daughter who was 3 1/2 months old when we arrived on July 4. Her parents were transitioning back to work after a series of maternity and paternity leaves. This apartment is a comfortable one bedroom with a large bathroom, convenient kitchen and a large living area. It was the perfect place for us to return in the evenings to rest after a long day of child care.

The hosts, Keith and Deborah, are excellent. They are very kind and we communicated well to make sure everything worked smoothly. We had them as neighbors for six months. They encouraged us to become part of the Mill Valley community. They were very gracious and also gave us all the privacy we needed. We feel very fortunate to have lived in their apartment for such a long time and to have got to know them well.

The childcare involved long hours of hard work, but very rewarding to renew a bond with our son and form bonds with his wife and baby. Having this apartment as a restful retreat helped make it possible.

Property is very well located in a quiet cove. It has been kept in good shape.

Great for a weekend getaway just a few minutes drive to Muir Woods and yet not far to the restaurants and stores.

Really had a wonderful stay.

Cool breezes, comfortable bed, who could want more?

  • 5 of 5

The apartment location is perfect for marketing, sightseeing. Being in the woods is a definite plus. Very quiet at night and dark enough to see more stars than I can usually see at home. Super comfortable bed, a definite plus for me. The stairs to the apartment might not work for everyone but we didn't have a problem even with the luggage. Keith and Deborah were available when we needed guidance about the gas heating stove and grocery stores. A wonderful,peaceful place after a day of sightseeing.

highly recommend this place

  • 5 of 5

The most comfortable bed and a super cozy, warm and comfortable apartment. The kitchen was really well stocked too with all the basics to get you started (Peet's coffee and decaf, half and half, sugar, salt, pepper, spices, etc). Next time i'm home visiting I will stay here.

Perfect location and cosy appartment

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour à Mill Valley s est super bien passé. Nous avions l appartement avec une chambre. L appartement est bien agencé la cuisine est bien équipée et fonctionnelle. La salle de bain a une grande douche et deux vasques. Le lit est grand et confortable. Il y a beaucoup de rangements dans la chambre (placards). La pièce à vivre est cosy avec un grand divan et un fauteuil très confortable. Il y a une table pour prendre les repas. On a utilisé la machine à laver et le sèche linge et tout fonctionnait bien. La maison est entourée d arbres et c est très calme. Il y a des magasins et en particulier pour faire des courses alimentaires à 5 minutes en voiture. C est très facile d aller visiter San Francisco le pont du golden gate est à une quinzaine de minutes en voiture. Il y a de grands axes qui passent près de Mill Valley ce qui permet de sillonner la région. Les propriétaires vivent sur place ils répondent très rapidement aux mails et fournissent toutes les informations nécessaires via le site et sont accueillants.

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!
