About Kendra Pollack

Happy family of four. We love Mill Valley for all the wonderful things it offers.

Kendra Pollack purchased this studio in 2011

Why Kendra Pollack chose The Bay Area

We love our part of town. You are surrounded by redwoods, water and the creek.

We have a stand alone apartment. The property is private, clean and everything is new. If you love to cook, it is a large, fully loaded and functional kitchen. Location provides the serenity of the redwoods but is a short walk to our fabulous town.

What makes this studio unique

GETTING AROUND

If you enjoy hiking, we have amazing trails to Muir Woods and Stinson beach. You can always take the Stage Coach back if needed.

You could hop on a bus to Sausalito from the bottom of Dipsea steps, about 10 minute walk from the house.

Uber service is a quick and easy way to get around the area as well. They'll come get you at the end of your hike!

Mill Valley Depot is just a short walk -- (less than 10minutes). Catch commuter buses to San Francisco or head into picturesque Sausalito. While there, adventure over to Alcatraz or Angel Islands via ferry.

It's an approximate 40-50 minute trip by car to San Francisco International Airport. The Oakland International Airport can be reached in approximately 45-50 minutes.

Muir Woods; 20 min by car to entrance ; 90 minutes to walk

Mt. Tam: 2 min by car to entrance off Panoramic Highway

I love the hiking and biking trails. We bike to Sausalito, take the ferry to San Francisco for the best meals in California. The wine country is an hour away, Stinson beach, we hike to Muir beach. Tuesday night you don't want to miss Mark Pitta at the Throckmorton Theater for a great night of comedy.

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for two. Natural light, updated/top of the line features. Luxurious as described. Close to downtown Mill Valley, with shops, restaurants and bars close by. Muir Woods/Mt. Tam are a quick 10-15min drive. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Kendra was available to answer any questions!

Five star love nest

  • 5 of 5

The amenities, decor and view were beyond our wildest expectations. Our hosts made sure we had coffee and a choice of coffee maker or expresso machine. We felt so welcomed.

We will definitely stay there again.

Most ideal upscale setting for storybook nature immersion

  • 5 of 5

I love how tastefully decorated this charming studio is along with its architecture, sky lights, bathroom floor warmer, bathtub, candles, ceiling fan, A/C, fireplace, and full kitchen. (They thought of everything)

Kendra and I had great communication and I was even more impressed with the location of their beautiful home.

Old Mill Park is a 5min walk to the right, and if you walk a mile or so the oppposite way you'll encounter the magical Cascade Park with a nice waterfall. The town center with all kinds of restaurants and shops is about a 15min walk. The amazing town library is also a short walking distance. The surrounding neighborhood is tucked into a huge redwood forest and a creek that runs along most of the upscale houses spread out in the area. I would SO live here! I'm in Love with this part of Mill Valley and this fashionable studio cabin was the perfect place to stay for me.:-)

The only things I would mention are that you can hear everything going on outside quite loudly with the windows open, and since it's built over a garage you can also hear the door opening & closing. Those aren't a big deal, but something to know ahead of time.

Also there were 3 different kinds of coffee makers but no coffee Lol ~ That kind of bummed me out.

Overall, I would come back in a heartbeat ♡

Grateful to have found this gem.

Beautiful, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for three nights and loved it. The studio itself was very nicely furnished, beautiful, and clean. Comfortable bed. Kitchen has everything that you would need if you choose to eat in. The location is close to Mill Valley, a nice town with many options for dining. It's somewhat of a long walk to town, but very enjoyable as it's very beautiful with lots of trees. We enjoyed the studio very much and would highly suggest to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. I am happy that you enjoyed yourself. I am sorry you felt the walk was long to downtown. It takes us ten minutes to get to the center. A beautiful walk on Cascade Dr that is flat, along the creek. Best, Kendra

Nestled in the redwoods at the base of Mt. Tamalpais on a winding street with neighbors close by, it is a one-half mile easy walk to the center of town. Our shaded street is quiet, although active with bikers, hikers, and people walking their dogs or pushing strollers, since it is a natural destination for enjoying the beauty of Cascade Canyon. Hiking paths are close by, as is a stream that runs to a nearby wooded park set with benches and picnic tables.

Due to the fact we are surrounded by Redwoods, you could have difficulty with cell coverage. Verizon has the best coverage here.
