About Property Manager
I have been happily living in this house since I purchased it. It is my home, but given the fact that I travel a lot, I have decided to share it with sensitive travelers that would enjoy the same things I do - the peace and quiet, the sun, the outdoor activities and the proximity of a beautiful city such as San Francisco.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2004
Why Property Manager chose Mill Valley
The views and the privacy are spectacular!
What makes this House unique
The house is spacious, modern, light and beautifully furnished. I have a lot of books, music and unusual art, and a very sunny deck where I like to sit and read, take a tub or simply lounge and get a tan. I love to walk to town at sunset for a little shopping, and I love to hike the trails right behind my house where I can enjoy sweeping views of the entire Bay area. Mill Valley is a quaint little town with good restaurants, 2 Whole Foods markets, a farmer's market on Friday, great shops, theater's and a very convenient gym and health spa facility. It is only 25/30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, close to the beaches and not far from the Napa Valley. The weather is sunnier than in San Francisco, but it rarely gets too hot. My house is in a perfect neighborhood for a woman traveling a lot, and I never have to lock my door when I'm home and feel perfectly safe.

Beautiful House. Great View.
We really enjoyed our stay. It’s a great location for exploring the entire Bay Area. Thanks!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and got to explore this beautiful area.
Have a wonderful Xmas season.
This is the spot
Great house with a perfect view. We have been here during a heat wave which was unexpected at this time of the year. The house is entirely glass on one side facing the city so keeping cool has been a challenge but at any other time of the year I don't think it would be a problem. We used the awnings as much as possible and there is AC but it can't fight the passive solar effect in direct sun and 90 degree heat.
The house is just as the pictures show and in fact even nicer. We cooked and found everything you would ever need for a even a Thanksgiving dinner. Very well equipped. The bed is comfy and the pillows are great. The location on the to of a large hill is what affords the great view but it's not a drive I'd care to make in a big SUV so rent accordingly. There is good parking on the property for 2 cars.The road is windy and steep but worth the clime for sure. The tub on the deck is an amazing feature and was a great way to escape the heat.
As a location we love Mill Valley and the town is just a short drive down the hill. Movies, restaurants, shops and charm are all within a few blocks. We found this to be a great home base as we weren't really coming to make SF our focus, instead doing things outside the city. We would stay here again in a heartbeat but next time... we're going to stay longer.
Thank you for your nice review. I have heard from Judy about the heat, while I was in Europe, and she said you were really nice and understanding. If you ever decide to come back, we would love to have you.
All the best
fantastic house in Mill Valley
We spent a week in this wonderful house with fantastic views not just of SF but of Mill Valley itself. The house is so stylish and well kept .We spent most of our time on the deck which has great furniture for dining and relaxing. The property has everything you need for a relaxing stay.
Besides SF there is so much to do and see in the area -we will have to go back to see everything. Eleonora and Judy in particular were a pleasure to deal with.
thank you for your nice review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Judy makes every effort to make guests feel welcome and solve any problems that may arise. She will be very happy to tead your review.
Excellent Accommodations in a perfect location.
This is a great place for a couple visiting the Bay Area. We took the ferry into San Francisco, drove to Napa, and hiked in Marin County. It was great exploring using Mill Valley as our hub. This home was comfortable, and had a spectacular view that you could see from most of the house. We cooked several meals as the kitchen is outfitted well. This house is on a hill, with some narrow roads and turns to get there, but you get used to that rather quickly, and you're rewarded with the view.
The deck is very nice, with a retractable awning. With the remote control, it is very easy to operate.
There are stairs to get to the front door, so this will not work for someone who has difficulty with steps. It didn't phase us one bit.
This place is fun...artwork and colors are very pleasing. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you very much for your nice review. I am glad you enjoyed the house and the area and if you are ever in Mill Valley again, you are most welcome.
A really wonderful home
My husband and I LOVE this house! We’re already talking to Judy and Eleonora about renting it next winter. It's very serene and quiet, comfortable and light-filled, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and well-maintained. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped. We especially enjoyed the large deck--a great place to relax and read a book, dine or simply enjoy the fabulous view. The private off-street parking is a real bonus.
The location is ideal—very convenient to downtown Mill Valley and numerous walking/hiking trails and the nearby open space preserves. It is also easy drive to San Francisco and Napa Valley.
Mill Valley is a charming town with great restaurants, coffee shops and shopping. It is also home to the Throckmorton Theatre which has free classical music concerts on Wednesdays at noon and the Marin Theater Company.
Eleonora and Judy were a joy to work with—always timely and professional, friendly and helpful.
Thank you for your wonderful review. Judy and I really appreciate your taking the time to write it.
It has been a pleasure having you stay at my house, and I want to also thank you for leaving it spotless.
It is such a treat to host people like you, who are respectful of other people's space and property. You are most welcome if you decide to come back to Mill Valley.
Beautiful home in an awesome location!!
Everything about this property is as described in the reviews that we relied upon before making our booking. The house is situated on the side of a hill above Mill Valley and it affords absolutely stunning vistas over the bay to San Francisco. We could not get over these and spent ages just taking them all in.The house has all of the amenities that are described on this site and the extras such as visiting wildlife and the silence are to be emphasized. We stayed for around 4 weeks and although we never met the owner or her agent, there was adequate contact by e-mail.
The house was very well furnished and very comfortable to live in. We understand that the bed is new and king-sized. Extremely comfortable!!
You will find the drive up to the property to be initially a bit hair-raising but after you have gone up and down the road a few times it is not too big a problem.
Mill Valley itself is a nice little town, with good restaurants and other worthwhile facilities. It is very close to ferry ports which allow access to the City and also to the road network.
If ever we get back to visit this part of California, we will be sure to check out the property. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to you.
