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 Almonte
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.

This was the perfect vacation property - short distance from San Francisco and well placed for visiting wine country. The view is just superb and the house is extremely comfortable and well equipped. Ruby was excellent to deal with and the bottle of wine on arrival was a nice surprise. I would strongly recommend this house for a relaxing vacation. We loved it!
The view, as advertised, is lovely, the house spotless, roomy and well appointed.
Ruby did an amazing job communicating with us. She responded to our initial request so quickly with text and email follow ups. She also provided a lot of helpful information regarding the property and activities in the area. The house was spotless and it was so nice to have all the fixings for coffee and tea waiting for us when we got there.
As advertised! Great location! Incredible home!
Ruby was a great host. House was very cozy. View... Amazing. Easy access to all the fun! She had some great suggestions on enjoying the area in her welcome folder too!
Beautiful home...perfect stay!
Ruby was amazing, and her home is spectacular. We came for a girls trip and never wanted to leave the house or the view.
The view itself was worth staying here. Watching the sun rise each morning was such a treat. The rooms were comfortable and the living space was large enough for our family of 5. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to cook your meals. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, so it was very peaceful. The only downside was the driveway. It's a thin driveway that you have to reverse into. But when you're up on the hill, you would have to expect it. After a couple of days, it definitely got easier. (Note: we were driving a big SUV.
If you're driving a small car, I don't think it would be a problem.) Regardless, we all really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. Thanks Ruby for being so easy to communicate with and for allowing us to stay at your home.
Amazing view, spectacular sunrise
Ruby's home was perfect for a gathering of my adult children and myself. The home was clean, comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. Great hikes and restaraunts were close. The view spectacular. The driveway was a challenge for sure. A great place for our gathering.
