About the property

4 Bedroom 2 Bath Home in Strawberry

Our home was extensively remodeled in 2005 and has all the modern amenities. It is professionally cleaned weekly. It is located in the Strawberry area of Mill Valley, very close to Tiburon. You can drive to San Francisco in 10 minutes, or take the Tiburon or Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco, which is a 20 minute ride across the bay. Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Pt. Reyes, Napa, Sonoma, Mount Tamalpais are all minutes away. Carmel, Monterey, and Lake Tahoe are a 3 hour drive away.

The rental is for a 4 bedroom and 2 bath home ( it will not include the master bedroom & master bath which will be locked). 1 queen, a bunk bed (with queen bed on the bottom bunk), and two rooms with single beds.

The kitchen has all top-of-the-line appliances: Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine fridge, Wolf stove, warming drawer, a new 55' HDTV flat screen TV, etc. Counters are all granite/marble. It is fully equipped with high-end pots and pans and all sorts of cooking gadgets. Artwork throughout the house.

The upstairs playroom has a 50' HD flat screen TV with DVD and Apple TV. The entire house has high speed Wi-Fi with Blast, Comcast's highest WiFi speed available. We will also leave the computer printer/scanner for your use.

The yard is well landscaped and comes with Green Egg BBQ and outdoor dining table. The rear pathway doubles as a bocce ball court. The house is also serviced by roof mounted solar panels.

Unlike other homes in Mill Valley which can be 15 minutes from the freeway (30 with traffic), our home's location is ideal for getting to and from San Francisco & the wine country. You can be in San Francisco in about 12 minutes and in the Sonoma/Napa Valley wine country in less than 30 minutes. In addition, you are minutes away from Mill Valley's incredible hiking trails such as the Dipsea Trail & Muir Woods.

In fact, you can bike from our house along the Blackie's Pasture bike path all the way to the Tibruon Ferry Terminal (3.5 miles), which has 12 trips daily to San Francisco. You can take your bikes on the ferry, which is a 20 minute ride to San Francisco.

The more adventurous visitors can ride your bikes from San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, to our house (14 miles from San Francisco Ferry Building)

Mill Valley was just named one of the 20 best small towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine!

About Chuck

I grew up in Mill Valley and now live here with my wife and four kids.

Chuck purchased this house in 1994

Why Chuck chose Mill Valley

* Entire house was recently remodeled with periodic upgrades such as new HDTV.

* Very easy access to San Francisco, wine country, etc.

* Very close to grocery market & retail shops.

* Private, quiet, and secluded corner lot.

Since this is our home, we prefer to rent to groups of 6 or less. Prior to sending you a rental contract, we would like to touch base with you on the phone so that we can find a bit more about your group and your visit, etc. Since I grew up in the area, I could offer you helpful suggestions about activities, restaurants, etc.

What makes this house unique

Unlike many homes in Mill Valley that can get trapped by summer traffic, our home has very easy access to highway 101. It is just up the road from the Strawberry Village Shopping Center which is home to Antica Pizza, Starbucks, Thep Laila Thai Food, Pasta Pomordoro, Safeway, Woody's Frozen Yogurt, and 50 retail tenants. At the same time the house is perfectly secluded, private and quiet.

Christmas Break Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at this house the week between Christmas and New Year Day . House is in a perfect location to serve as home base for a week in the SF area . We had an incredible week . So much to do . Everything so close. Even ideal location to make day trip to wine country or Monteray . And , so much nicer to return to a spacious house with all amenities as opposed to a hotel room after a long day of sightseeing and activities . Owner was extremely accommodating and easy to work with .

Gorgeous home in Marin County

  • 5 of 5

My family of seven stayed in this wonderful home in August 2014. The house is spacious, beautifully decorated, and very clean. The backyard is lovely, the kitchen has everything you need, and the playroom has toys for the kids and desks for the adults. The location is terrific and is close to grocery stores, restaurants, San Francisco, and the wine country. The owner was gracious, accommodating, and responsive. My family has rented four homes in Marin County and this is by far our family's favorite. We highly recommend this property.

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this property. Our son was married at the beginning of September, 2013 and we made this home our "home base" for 2 weeks. The location is very convenient for exploring Marin County, day trips to the wine country and of course into San Francisco itself. The home is lovely - spacious, clean and comfortable and well equipped. We hosted large family dinners and appreciated the well equipped kitchen and the ample indoor and outdoor dining areas.

My husband needed to do some work while we were visiting and the office upstairs gave him room to set up his computer and me room to assemble the wedding favors - a great bonus space. Our hosts were very accommodating and helped resolve a door hardware problem the same day we contacted them about it.

The amenities nearby are outstanding - great selection of grocery stores, restaurants, hiking and biking options. Our wedding guests all had a great time in the area and loved coming to the house to get together.

Perfect in so many ways

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 4 night stay in this beautiful property and were incredibly sad to leave. The home offered a perfect amount of space both inside and out for our large family group in town for a family wedding. The decor and fittings were top notch throughout and every aspect clean, comfortable and safe. The location is perfect as it is easy distance to San Fran but also for quick trips to Tiburon, Muir Woods, Sausalito, etc as well as great for running/biking in the immediate area. Our children enjoyed the kid-friendly set up and safety of the enclosed yard.

This home is a true treasure and we hope to return again in the future!

Great house amenities, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

House location is very convenient, just 15 minutes from the city via the Golden Gate. Also close to Sonoma County, and many parks north of SF.

House is very comfortable, with top notch amenities particularly in the kitchen area. Beautiful garden with BBQ and seating area.

Owner provided excellent customer service throughout the whole process of reserving, staying and leaving the property. Would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting SF or its surroundings.

Discovered a Gem in Mill Valley!

  • 5 of 5

This place was well worth the money! The owner was a pleasure to deal with.

The home itself was exactly what we expected and even exceeded expectations. The home was very CLEAN and COMFORTABLY accommodated our party of 9 (2 couples, 5 teenagers). The location was in a safe and picturesque neighbourhood. It was strategically located to all amenities including San Francisco and other surrounding tourist areas. After a long day of touring in was a pleasure to return to this home's beautiful landscaped garden which you could admire from the many windows surrounding the main level.

Without question I would recommend this house!
