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 California

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.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family wedding in Muir Woods and this house was perfect. Easy access to the wedding festivities but also the many other things to do in the area (ferry to San Francisco, beaches, town, etc.). House was clean, stocked with the essentials, and perfect for our group of 5. We will definitely stay here if we come back to the area! Thanks so much, Ruby!

Mill Valley Home with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house! Great views, quiet setting, and very nice amenities. It is also in an excellent location with easy access to Tiburon, Sausalito, S.F. (via ferry) and Muir Woods. The owner was very professional, supportive and responsive. She respected our privacy but responded quickly to our questions, provided valuable insight about the area, and promptly returned our security deposit. I would rent again!

Great family place to stay near San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the place. Easy drive to over the bridge to see San Fran with a nice quiet respite to come home to at night. Morning sun rise looking out of the back windows is not to be missed. The house is bright, clean and inviting with plenty of space. Restaurants nearby were great with kids and grocery store was close by. We would definitely recommend this place and stay here again. Thanks Ruby.

Amazing view in comfortable surroundings and great location.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing view! Regardless of the time of day there was always something wonderful to see on the horizon. We managed to see the sunrise each and every morning and the light at dusk was amazing too. So happy we chose this rental and we definitely felt at home from the moment we arrived. Ruby provided all the essentials and was a hospitable host who wanted to make sure our needs were met. It is seldom that host on AirB&B and Homeaway.com allow their guest to have access to the essentials, especially in the kitchen. We were grateful for that touch on our first night when we decided to cook dinner at the house. The house is very comfortable and suited all of our needs. We just wished we had more time to enjoy the decks but our itinerary was so jammed packed. We all had restful sleeps in the bedrooms and it was very quiet in the neighborhood. We were fortunate to have been in Mill Valley for their annual Arts and Crafts Festival and we are so happy we had that opportunity. We only wish we had more time to spend in the beautiful town center exploring the many shops and restaurants. The home is centrally located if you are planning to visit all the local sites, Sausalito, Muir Woods, Stinson, and even Napa Valley is just a short ride away. We loved the fact that we were so close to SF but not in the hub of all the activity. We would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a great space in the SF metro area but wanted easier access to its many sites outside of the city.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Ruby for a wonderful stay. My two friends from Germany and myself from NZ had a very special time celebrating our 50th birthdays in SF. It was nice coming back to a very clean, peaceful place after days of discovering and shopping in busy SF. We loved the closeness to nature and enjoyed walking the trails which are just a three minute drive from the house. All in all a perfect stay.
