Mill Valley Studio Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


Situated in the heart of California’s beautiful Marin County, this Mill Valley bungalow accommodates up to two guests in a redwood filled/mountain view estate setting. At just over 500 square feet, the modern and quiet bungalow also features an additional 150 square feet of private deck. Nestled in an English-style garden along a serene and spacious hillside, this bungalow is perfectly located, whether you’re into hiking and biking Bay Area trails, visiting Marin County towns and the North Bay Wine counties, or taking in the sites of cosmopolitan San Francisco.

Marin County/Mill Valley (15 miles north of San Francisco) Bungalow/Large Studio

Highway 101 (3 miles) – main north/south highway (south to San Francisco, north to Wine Counties)


This charming bungalow is the ideal getaway home for travels throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and North Bay Wine counties. Newly remodeled and filled with modern conveniences, this bungalow features its own fully equipped kitchen/dining area. The well-sized living/sleeping area includes a plush couch, new queen bed, and wall-mounted flat screen television. In addition to the spacious walk-in closet, this bungalow also includes a hidden laundry center, as well as a sleekly tiled bathroom, with spa-like shower. The private entrance leads to a secluded outdoor deck/garden patio, perfect for morning coffee or for sharing an evening bottle of wine, while enjoying the beautiful Marin mountains and redwoods.

The bungalow is just a very plesant ten-minute walk to charming downtown Mill Valley, which is filled with unique and upscale shops and restaurants. Hop in your car (no problem parking at the bungalow – it’s off street and included) and take a quick five-minute drive to the spectacular Muir Woods National Monument, home of some of the world’s largest and oldest living redwoods. Keep driving another ten minutes and visit Muir and Stinson beaches, and Point Reyes, where you just might see a pod of whales swimming along the coast, or a group of sea lions, searching for the day’s meal. Less than 20 minutes south, you’ll drive across the mighty Golden Gate to San Francisco. And, a 35 to 45 minute drive north takes you right to the fabulous Napa and Sonoma Valleys, featuring the state’s best vines, wines, and wineries.

Hikers' Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Greg & Barbara's place is great for any couple's getaway, but for hikers it's pure heaven. Set in the redwoods near the middle of the Dipsea stairs, it is located amidst some of the best hiking in the country. So much to choose from and so little time, we loved it all, especially the Steep Ravine hike. So beautiful and peaceful - much better than Muir Woods. The studio is oh so comfortable and immaculately clean. We felt at home as soon as Greg showed us in. We also appreciated the wealth of information about Mill Valley, dining, and, of course, hiking. We had a great organic pizza at Tony Tutto's Pizza. Yes, we will have to return for more great hiking, good food, and a beautiful, comfortable accomodation.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We came to Marin County from Houston, Texas to enjoy the outdoor splendor and temperate climate. We hiked every day for hours. It was not necessary to even get in the car on two of our days. We hiked from the DipSea stairs that start right around the corner from this home and went over Mount Tamalpais and into the Muir Woods. I cannot recommend it more to active travelers. I would note that handicapped or older people would find the stairs to the unit troubling, but they were just fine for us. Greg (the owner) gave us great counsel on which trails to take, and he was right every time.

Walking into Mill Valley from the unit (or the top of Mt Tam) is easy and fun. Getting into SF or up to Point Reyes were both easy too.

We only bought two meals during our week-long stay in Marin. This kitchen provided all that was needed to cook, and we obviously cooked a great deal.

The air smells like bay leaves and honeysuckle, and it feels like you are staying in an enchanted forest. Be prepared not to want to leave.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This clean and comfortable apartment is tucked away in a beautiful redwood forest. The hosts were very accommodating, friendly and helpful - ready to answer any questions we had about the area and the town of Mill Valley. We loved the location and the steps which if you go down lead to the town and if you go up lead to very scenic and beautiful mountain views and some wonderful and amazing homes. Try to arrive while it is daylight, the roads leading to the address are rather narrow and our GPS didn't always work in the area.

Absolutely wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Redwoods, hiking the Dipsea and mt. tam right out the door! Walk down the steps to the library, mill park, downtown, or just lounge around on the patio (loved the shower too)! Couldn't be any better, we've stayed at several vrbo's and this is our favorite! Our hosts were so helpful and friendly, anything that we needed it was there. Can't rave about this rental enough, will definitely be back again!

Perfect place in Mill Valley

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent three nights staying in this rental in Mill Valley and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who wants a GREAT location, super quiet space, incredibly clean, and sweet owners.

The bed was comfortable, I slept like a baby - and having the kitchen was a dream. A place to return again and again.
