1 bedroom, 1 Bath studio (Sleeps 2-4)

PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR TO SEE IF YOUR DATE IS AVAILABLE. I keep it current. Thanks!

Cozy furnished studio in-law unit two blocks from Downtown Mill Valley - a beautiful town a 15 minute drive north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge. Restaurants, Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club, cafes, shopping, trail heads, movie theater, comedy club/live theater all within walking distance. You can't beat the location. This is a one room unit with hardwood floors, 1 queen sized bed, 1 queen sized futon bed, kitchenette with mini-fridge, sink, microwave, coffee maker, cable TV with HBO, table for 2, and a bathroom with shower. This studio is a ground level unit in a 3 unit building with a separate entrance. Wireless internet access and parking provided. Pack and play,, and air mattress available upon request.

It's perfect for parents visiting their children/grandchildren in the area, or for wedding guests attending the Outdoor Art Club. With nice linens, plush towels, it's much more welcoming and homey than a hotel room.

Easy driving access to San Francisco sight-seeing, and to beautiful Marin scenery and wildlife. 15 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument old growth redwood forest, and to beautiful Muir Beach. 5 minute drive to Golden Gate National Recreation Area hiking trails, including Tennessee Valley Road trail, where an easy 1 3/4 mile hike takes you to the beach. 8 to 10 minute drive to downtown Sausalito - explore stores in charming downtown Mill Valley, or walk by the bay on the Sausalito marina. There are ferries to SF leaving from Sausalito and Larkspur.

A 45 minute drive takes you to wine country in Sonoma or Napa, or to the Point Reyes National Seashore.

The unit on the ground floor (no stairs) of a 2 story, 3 unit building. There is a family with 2 children living on the second floor so expect to hear some activity in the mornings getting ready for school and between 5-8pm after they are home. One of the families has a hypoallergenic, well behaved, indoor dog. If you have a similarly well-behaved, child/other dog friendly pet, we would consider letting him/her stay for an extra deposit and $50 cleaning fee.

About owner/property manager

We have been living in the bay area for the past 15 years, in San Francisco for 14 of them so please ask us for insider tips if you plan to visit SF. We got married in Mill Valley, adopted our dog in Mill Valley, and are now back living here with 2 kids. I do marketing consulting for natural food and beverage companies and love to play tennis and hike. My husband is a software engineer who loves kite surfing and playing the drums. We have two boys who love to swim, and ride around with us on our bikes.

owner/property manager purchased this studio in 2010

Why owner/property manager chose The Bay Area

We bought this studio so we could accommodate family and friends when they come to visit us and rent it out when it isn't being used.

What makes this studio unique

2 blocks from downtown Mill Valley, 15 minute drive to Muir Woods, 20 minutes to San Francisco, 45 minute drive to Napa. Really, you can't beat the location.

10 minutes from Bob Weir's Sweetwater, easy commute, 5 minute walk downtown. dog friendly.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our Irish setter stayed six nights. I lived in Mill Valley in the 1970s and we visit frequently. I was attending a conference in the City and needed a comfortable place and an easy commute. I had just a 5 minute walk to the commuter bus each morning in the center of town. My wife was able to walk our setter around town easily, take him quickly to the Marin Headlands in 15-20 minutes, get a coffee at the Depot or Peets in a 6-7 minute walk. Each evening I was dropped off back in town and walked 5 minutes back to the studio. We had just one issue...no internet, and we were immediately given an alternative password. The kitchenette is limited but works and there are lots of places to get food. Whole Foods with an extensive takeout is on the same street...Miller, as is Safeway with their deli. Also close on Miller is Super Duper Burger which also has magnificent veggie burgers. And just 10 minutes away by foot are great restaurants downtown. The refrigerator is the little dorm style and held leftovers just fine, but the freezer was unusable due to thick ice build-up. Perhaps its been addressed by now. If you like live music and great food, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir's Sweetwater club is perhaps a 12 minute walk from the studio. This not a detached unit. The owner's description is a must read. They describe in advance any domestic sounds you may experience. We didn't find it an issue.

We enjoyed our stay at the cozy and large studio. Beautiful fall Ginko leaves and lovely garden.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the studio. It was definitely large enough for the three of us. The weather was in the 40's while we were visiting and the heater kept us nicely warm. The kitchenette looked very adequate but we didn't have an opportunity to use it. The futon didn't serve our needs as it lays on the floor and not on an off the floor sofa/bed structure. However, the blow-up bed worked great, is the height of a regular bed, and is located in the utility closet if you need it.

The only disappointment was that we couldn't get the TV to work, which would have been nice for mom. Perhaps it was operator error?

We will definitely book this property again as our daughter lives in Sausalito and it's just 10 min. away, at most. We enjoyed breakfast at several of the Mill Valley coffee places on the list provided as well as the shops and walking the area.

If you like a more home like atmosphere and not that of the large hotels, you won't be disappointed in this property. It is definitely a nice choice and a good price alternative.

convenient

  • 4 of 5

It was perfect for our weekend stay. The room was clean and comfortable for what we needed it for. The location was great, walking distance to the downtown Mill Valley, 4 miles from Muir woods, 40-45min drive to san fran with traffic. (Side note- if you plan on going to Muir woods, make arrangements for a ride home because there is no cell phone service there). Checking in and out was easy.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My parents stayed here while visiting us for a week. The studio was very clean, quiet and had everything they needed. They enjoyed being able to walk downtown and get around by themselves. Great price for what was needed. I would definitely recommend this place.

Perfect place for visiting Marin County

  • 5 of 5

While relatively small, the studio was a perfect place for my family while we spent a couple of days visiting Muir Woods and Stinson Beach. For the price it couldn't be beat. Was in a great location (very easy walking distance to shops, coffee, restaurants, etc.) and had all we needed right there. Pretty tight for a family of four but we made it work and really not any different than everyone in one hotel room.

Mill Valley visit

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment was everything advertised. Clean and

Comfortable. I walked to Peets each morning for delicious coffee and conversation. A great base to visit Muir Woods and Stinson Beach. Close to food markets and anything else you might need. Sausalito and San Francisco a short drive. Easy transaction with good communications.
