Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms & 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 6) in the heart of downtown MV!

Stunning home in the "heart" of downtown Mill Valley. Absolutely the #1 "walkability" location to enjoy the best our town has to offer. 15 min. to both San Francisco and Muir Woods! Soaring ceilings, natural light, hardwood floors - just beautiful!

The Space

Soaring ceilings with expansive windows, you will love the dramatic light throughout the day. Vintage hardwood floors, well appointed kitchen, romantic remote-controlled gas fireplace, large bedrooms, Wifi, and two 50' flat-screen TV's (Living Room & Master Bedroom). The large capacity washer and dryer is conveniently tucked inside the hall closet and one dedicated off-street parking space is all yours. We also provide our guests with two bicycles for their enjoyment. Relax or entertain in the backyard patio where outdoor furniture and strings of light await.

Our spacious three bedrooms (1 en suite) sleep 6 comfortably. At 1200 SF +/- our space is nearly five times the size of a typical hotel room. Enjoy two full-baths including a tub in the master. Our rental was originally a single-family residence that was expanded to include a women's fashion boutique, beauty salon and a one bedroom apartment to fit-in with the downtown vibrancy and aesthetic! Rest- assured that you enjoy your own separate and private setting along with peace and quiet. But don't just take my word for it, please read our reviews!

Sleeping Configuration:

The Rental is configured to sleep Six (6) within three bedrooms. One bedroom features a King-Size bed, a second provides a Queen-Size bed and the third conveniently provides two-Twins.

Truly the ideal year-round destination location due in part to our temperate climate and proximity to San Francisco, The Wine Country, Lake Tahoe, Silicon Valley, Monterey, Carmel, Muir Woods National Monument, beaches, etc.

The 'Top 7 Reasons To Stay With Us':

(1) Vacations; (2) Family or guest holiday visits; (3) Business travel; (4) Extended stays due to re-location or house-hunting; (5) Temporary housing due to home construction, alterations or additions; (6) Close proximity for reception or party preparation at Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club; (7) Close proximity for attending all Mill Valley Festivals and Parades (Film Festival, Art Festival, Little League Baseball Parade, Tam High Homecoming Parade, Memorial Day Parade and more).

About Gary Ferroni

I'm available to my guests as needed but I give generous space/privacy. My own home is less than one-mile away, located in the Sycamore/Freeman Park neighborhood. I'm happy to give recommendations and even a little historical perspective to those who ask. I am third generation Mill Valley, raising my children (The fourth generation) in this idyllic town that we are grateful to call home. I look forward to having you here as our guest.

Gary Ferroni purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Gary Ferroni chose The Bay Area

Guests love our location and the the fine interior appointments. Just 15 minutes to San Francisco and 50 to the Napa Valley Wine Country! Arguably the best rental to use as a "home-base" and conveniently participate in all of the best that the city of Mill Valley, the Bay Area and environs has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Our rental is especially rare since it's IN THE DOWNTOWN! Moreover, three bedroom rentals with two full baths located here are extremely hard to come by.

Our guests say that it's everyone's favorite place to meet when friends and family are either visiting or staying in the area. Convenient, comfortable and fun are our hallmarks!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great place, very comfortable, in the heart of downtown Mill Valley. It was a great location for a ferry ride to spend the day in SF or to go to John Muir Woods for a hike. We loved being able to walk to the market and restaurants. You've got to try Sunnyside Cafe right across the street, everything was so yummy. Gary was a great host and full of great information. Thank you!

Mill Valley CA apartment review

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of the apartment. We had a wedding at the Outdoor Artist Club which is about 2 short blocks away. We also had appointments to get our hair and nails done just before the wedding and they were all within a short walk so it was very easy to get to and we did not have to look for parking.

The next day we had brunch in the downtown area and met with some other friends for dinner. Both places were excellent, services was good and we got seated outside which was very pleasant.

The apartment easily fit 4 adults and 2 small children and was the main meeting place for other family members both before and after the wedding which was great.

Parking for our second car was a concern until we found out that we could park next door in the lot which solved that problem.

One suggestion I would have is to add some more chairs to the outside patio area in the back. They could be the folding type and stored in the grey shed so they could be taken out when larger groups use the area.

All and all I would recommend the apartment to anyone staying in Mill Valley CA.

Good location and easy access to San Francisco. Also walking distance to the local market. Mill Valley is a nice town, a lot of restaurant, coffee shop, and other shops nearby. You can find everything needed in the house. Love the living room! Thanks.

Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais. Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from the Sonoma and Napa Valley Wine Country. Smithsonian Magazine named Mill Valley one (No. 4) of the 20 best small towns--with a population under 25,000--in America.

What sets Historical Mill Valley apart is not just the spectacular physical beauty of its setting, but equally its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement, urban sophistication and village charm. Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre since (website hidden)-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall, located two blocks from the Rental.

Mill Valley is flanked by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Seashore.

Although one recommends longer stays, Mill Valley is 2-1/2 hours to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park; Yosemite Valley should be on your 'bucket list' and, especially during late spring, one of the most beautiful places in the world.
