About The Owner

We have lived in this house for 25 years. We love the area because it is so green and quiet yet close to everything. Which is also why our guests love it. We were married in this house (24 years ago) and it has seen a lot of great occasions since then. Deborah is a San Francisco native and I am from London, England.

The Owner purchased this studio in 1990

Why The Owner chose Mill Valley

When our daughter and grandson moved from here down to Los Angeles, we realized that the house was just too big for the two of us. After many years of thinking about it we decided to create a guest apartment. We have both traveled a lot and we wanted to create a vacation get-away that WE would love to stay in. Hopefully - from what our guests tell us - we've done that.

What makes this studio unique

We never get tired of the trees, greenery and fresh air that we are fortunate enough to enjoy year round. Because we are both city people who love the outdoors, easy accessibility to San Francisco, mountain hikes and beaches has made this the perfect place to live - and we don't plan on moving anytime soon!

A little piece of peace

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here after coming out of a weeklong retreat and it was just the perfect environment! Sweet and amongst the trees, I was able to relax in the quiet and coziness that is this place. For how peaceful it is here it's actually really close to everything - so tucked away but very accessible. I was thrilled to have an amazing health food store nearby as well as Tennessee Valley - a great place to walk/hike/bike. Thank you!

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment is clean, quiet, comfortable and served our needs very well. Very good quality bedding and towels. The Peets coffee and REAL half & half, not powdered creamer, were a nice surprise. We've already booked a second stay.

Cozy studio in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was a perfect accommodation for our needs! It's conveniently located to many tourist attractions which we visited during our brief stay - only a 30-40 minute drive to places such as Napa Valley, Golden Gate Park, Muir wooods, Sausalito etc. The studio was tastefully decorated, cozy and immaculately clean. Deborah and Keith are very friendly and promptly respond back to any questions, requests or concerns. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area!

When we arrived at this distinctive property, our hosts offered to provide a summary of the "must see" spots in the city based on our interests. We found the space delightfully roomy and quite comfy for two. It was a simple thing to ferry into SF from nearby Saucilito. We were so close to Muir Woods and took the opportunity to explore thoroughly. Overall, I am so grateful we were able to spend the last 4 days with this great place as home base.

A perfect place to stay 🌹

  • 5 of 5

Look no further, this charming studio apartment is 5 star perfect. The apartment is meticulously clean, the kitchen well appointed and a very quiet location. (You might even see a deer in the driveway) Our hosts, Deborah and Keith are welcoming and available to answer questions. You are just a 5 minute drive into Sausalito to the restaurants and the ferry into San Francisco. Stinson Beach is a 20 minute drive along the most picturesque highway and Napa Valley and hour away. We were so pleased with this apartment and its location we would definitely come back and stay here again.
