About Ruby Casareno

We moved to Mill Valley in 1998. We love the area so much that we owned properties within a 2 mile radius of our current location. We started with a 1BD/1BA condo, located across the bay from this house. In 2001, we upgraded to a single family home with lots of trees in the backyard. In 2006, we purchased this property which is our favorite so far and would like to share our home as your base for exploring the Bay area.

Ruby Casareno purchased this house in 2006

Why Ruby Casareno chose Mill Valley

We love the panoramic view of the bay, which extends all the way to the East Bay on a clear day. The reflection of the moon on the water is such a spectacular sight. Plus, you get to witness the nice colors of sunrise.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Tennessee Valley Trail head, Sausalito, Tiburon, Angel Island, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Mt. Tamalpais, Point Reyes National Sea Shore, Napa, Sonoma. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey & Carmel and 4 hours to Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.

Great House in a great location with a Terrific View

  • 5 of 5

Ruby,

Thanks for everything. We really enjoyed our visit at your house in Mill Valley. What a terrific place. We were able to tour Marin, Napa and Sonoma as well as the City, then come home to a beautiful and relaxing stay in your well appointed home. It was great for me and my travelling companions. Mill Valley is such a great place. And the pictures of the moon rising we took from the balcony rival yours at the HomeAway site. Again thanks, we had a great time and enjoyed our stay at the "snd Best View Home in Mill Valley".

Best EVER Home Away Stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a small girls weekend get away. From the time of requesting the home Ruby was fully responsive and eagerly ensured that we have a warm, welcome home to come to. This is home is very inviting and comfortable. Ruby makes every provision to accommodate your "home away from home" experience.

We would definitely book this home over and over when we are in this area.

Great San Fran Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

My Family of five loved the property and the owner Ruby goes above and beyond in making her home feel like home. The house has everything you could need in it. After a trip to the the grocery store, we were set for a week of exploration all over the SF area. We really enjoyed the home, as we were concerned about living without Air Conditioning for the week, (This is common in the area), and are concerns were gone as the mild weather here makes things lovely without it. We are still amazed with how different the lifestyle here is compared to where we live, and we will always remember our trip here. We did so much, and the highlights were Alcatraz (Buy Tickets way ahead as it sells out), biking the golden gate Bridge, Jay Alexander Magic Show, Giants baseball, Urban Putt, Fisherman's Wharf, Hop on off bus tour............
