My husband, Brian and I moved into our home when I was pregnant with my twin daughters in 1994. Brian is in Real Estate and I am an Internet Marketing Consultant working with local businesses. Our home is fun, relaxing, unique and very special. We look forward to sharing it with you.
Alisa Swartz purchased this house in 1994
I brought a group of co-workers into this magical home in the redwoods and it was sure magical. We went for hikes, practiced yoga and had everything we needed in this home. I would highly recommend this location and home for family getaways, retreats and even a personal journey where you'd want the magic of the redwood trees and a grounding home. thank you to the owners for such a lovely space.
I was doing business in San Francisco with my team and we decided to forgo the expensive hotels in the city and stay at this wonderful house. It only took about 30 minutes to get there from the city and it was well worth the wonderfully scenic drive. The owners were extremely easy to work with. In fact, it felt like I was renting from a couple of friends! I will definitely be renting this house again when we are going to San Francisco.
By the way, if you stay here be sure to go a short distance up the street to see the beautiful waterfall.
This home is a winner. Clean, incredibly stocked kitchen, natural light, cozy corners, and plenty of grounds to explore. The shower in the master bath is a "must see" and I could listen to the sound of the creek running all day. We all agreed a weekend was way too short. Our next visit will definitely be much longer.
Alisa is a gracious and considerate host. She gave us our space but was attentive to all our questions.
I give both home and host an A+++++.
Thank so much for the great time!

The house was wonderful and the location was amazing. We loved listening to the creek on the property and walking into town and to the amazing trails. We felt like we were staying in the middle of the park. The owners were wonderful to work with and the house was well stocked with everything you could need. We loved it and will definitely recommend it and stay there again.
We loved our weekend in Mill Valley at this truly magical home in the woods. Everything was exactly as stated. It is an easy walk to town and 10 minutes up the road to the beautiful Cascade Falls and hiking. The lovely gardens and inviting hot tub made it even more special. Alisa was always quick to respond and very accommodating. We will definitely keep this place in mind for next year's GG reunion!
This property was the perfect home base for a weeklong retreat with our big East Coast family. The house is beautifully situated, tucked deep into the Muir Woods like a fairy tale.
There were plenty of bedrooms to accommodate our large group. As a family that loves to cook and eat together, we enjoyed the big kitchen that was stocked with lots of pots and pans, as well as its open layout where we hung out and casually ate most of our meals. We also really loved using the grill outside along with the big table outside on the patio.
It was great to be so close to town—accessible via an easy short walk or a 2 minute car ride—and we loved taking advantage of the multiple gorgeous hikes up through the Redwoods.
One other benefit was the proximity to the 2-person apartment across the street that was also rentable on VRBO (Property Listing #358748). My in-laws stayed there, and it was a great escape for them each night while still being close enough to allow them to be part of the festivities.
Thanks for a fabulous stay in Mill Valley!
