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.

Clean rental in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This rental is VERY clean, updated and in a great location. It is just minutes from Muir woods, hiking trails, and Sausalito. It was really nice to come back to a nice quiet room, away from the crowds and chaos of San Francisco. This rental is easy to find and access, parking is just across the street. It has a full kitchen and the open layout is perfect for 2 people. The owner was very friendly and gave us some recommendations of things to do. I would highly recommend trying some of the restaurants in Sausalito. If you are looking for a very clean rental, look no further. This cottage was perfect.

Beautifully appointed and unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

This studio is exceptional and I plan to return! In the heart of mill valley, nestled in the redwoods, walking distance to town and with beautiful trails headed out in every directions, the location is unbeatable. The studio itself is very comfortable and well done. Overall very nice place for two.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property is tucked under the redwoods and very quiet and nurturing. The skylights add plenty of light filtered through the redwoods, which make this quite a spot! The cottage is well built, the owners are kind and attentive. We had a very relaxing stay here and will be back!!

adorable

  • 5 of 5

This was an adorable, tastefully decorated studio apartment to rent. We had everything we needed, and it was easy to find. The location is extremely convenient for going to Muir Woods, which was one of our main goals for staying in the area, and not far from San Francisco and route 1. The owner was readily available and made everything super easy with the rental.

I also highly recommend Equator coffee shop in town nearby to anyone staying here. Fantastic espresso and the gluten free maple scone was just incredible.

Lovely and serene

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just had a lovely five night stay. We have family in the area and it was convenient but also a wonderful retreat to replenish our energy. The accommodations are lovely and comfortable everything we needed. The view from every window is the forest as if you are in a tree house. We would definetly come again

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.
