Sonja Dohse purchased this House in 1977
Why Sonja Dohse chose Tamalpais-Homestead Valley
When we lived in San Francisco, we would come to Marin frequently. When ever we came to Mill Valley, we would always say, 'I would really like to live in Mill Valley'. We are so happy that we made the choice to move to Mill Valley...it is really a special place.
What makes this House unique
The house is surrounded by beautiful garden and full of light coming in from the outside. When you are here you feel like you are at a home with all of the comforts that a home offers. Every morning after I get up, I get my cup of coffee and walk around the house to enjoy the gardens.

Maison agréable et localisation parfaite
Nous avons particulièrement apprécié notre séjour dans cette maison très spacieuse, propre et bien équipée (électroménager de qualité, lits très confortables). Rien ne manque. Le jardin autour de la maison est ravissant.
Les propriétaires sont remarquablement prévenants : nous avons reçu beaucoup d'informations avant notre arrivée, ils se sont souciés de notre bonne installation et que nous ne manquions de rien pendant notre séjour et la restitution de la caution est très rapide. Sonja est une personne très avenante et très soucieuse du bien-être de ses hôtes. Nous la remercions très chaleureusement de nous avoir confié son "home sweet home" pendant une semaine.
Pour terminer, la localisation de la maison est parfaite : il faut effectivement à peine 15 mn pour atteindre le Golden Gate que nous avions donc le plaisir d'admirer presque chaque jour. Nous avons trouvé la circulation dans San Francisco très facile. La région de Marin County est également très attrayante et ne manque pas de lieux de visite.
Une location que nous recommandons sans réserve.
Dear Matthieu and Family,
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and choosing our rental to stay at when you were in the Bay Area. We really enjoy having visitors from Europe and other countries. Thank you for leaving our, "Maison", so clean taking care of it as if it were your own. You were really the perfect family. We would have like to met you...perhaps another time another place. You are always welcome back if you come to the Bay area Again. I am taking the liberty of translating your review to English and adding it to my reply.
Warm Regards, Sonja and Rainer.
Nice house and perfect location
We particularly enjoyed our stay in this very spacious house, clean and well equipped (quality appliances, very comfortable beds). Nothing is missing. The garden around the house is lovely.
The owners are remarkably considerate: we received a lot of information before our arrival, they were concerned about our good installation and we did not miss anything during our stay and the return of the deposit is very fast. Sonja is a very pleasant person and very concerned about the well-being of her guests. We thank her very warmly for having entrusted us with her "home sweet home" for a week.
Finally, the location of the house is perfect: it takes just 15 minutes to reach the Golden Gate so we had the pleasure to admire almost every day. We found the traffic in San Francisco very easy. The Marin County area is also very attractive and has plenty of places to visit.
A rental that we recommend without reservation.
The vacation of a lifetime
When my father turned 70, we decided to go on a vacation, together with my sister and mother. It was a long flight from Sweden, but definitly worth it!
We had a marvelous week - real nice weather and a lot of interesting places to see.
We stayed at Sonjas and Rainers house and is was perfect. Good equipment, great rooms and the perfect placement - 15 minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge, 15 minutes to Muir Woods, 45 minutes to Wine Country.
But I have to say that the best thing about choosing Sonja and Rainer, was their friendliness! They helped us with tips and links to things we were interested in - hiking, Muir Woods, stores near by, Wine Country etc. Very fast and very friendly. Thank you for that!
My father told me on the way home that this was the best vacation he's ever had.
Dear Swedish Family,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our rental and that we were able to help guide you to interesting place to see in the Bay Area. It is always fun for us to have guests from other countries and especially in your case, since I am of Swedish descent. We hope to see you back for another vacation in the Bay Area.
Convenient to San Francisco and Points North
Our family of five had a wonderful stay at 301 Dolan. The home is lovely, clean, and well maintained with a beautiful walled garden. The well equipped kitchen, a nearby grocery store, and backyard grill allowed us to comfortably entertain our San Francisco daughter and ourLaguna Beach daughter and her two children as well. The home is conveniently located for quick access to San Francisco as well as points north. Our family enjoyed visits to Mier Woods, Point Reyes, and Sonoma
wineries. Our son kite surfed under the Golden Gate Bridge and we all enjoyed trips to Lands End and Chinatown, and shopping and eating in the Pacific Heights neighborhood where our daughter lives. Our hostess, Sonja, took care of our every need.
Fantastic stay! Ideal location - super nice owner!
Our family, consisting of two teenagers and my inlaws, had a WONDERFUL time staying at Sonja's home. Her Mill Valley home is a delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable with lots of room for all six of us to spread out. Ideal location to run into the city for the day, go to the Muir Woods, Russian River, explore Marin, or just relax and enjoy the peaceful/tranquil home. We are SO happy we stayed at Sonja's home. Might I add, finding a place that pleased my in-laws (in their 80s) AND pleased two teenage kids (ages 17 and 19) is no easy feat! Her home hit the mark for all of us! We hope to return again!
I almost forgot - Sonja was super attentive and easy to work with!
Thank you so much for your kind review. It means a lot to us that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our rental. We try our best to be sure that people feel at home and are comfortable. Also, thank you for pointing out how convenient we are to sights in the Bay Area. You and your family are welcome back any time!
Warm Regards, Sonja and Rainer
A Most Charming Home in Mill Valley, CA
We had the most wonderful 7 days at The Perfect Mill Valley Rental. The home is very welcoming and we were provided with all of the amenities we could ask for. It's the perfect location for day trips to the wine country and all of the attractions that San Francisco has to offer . The owners left plenty of brochures to help us make decisions on what to do on any given day.They even left us their discount card so that we could save money at the supermarket and kept in touch with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall, I would say that I would highly recommend spending your vacation in this lovingly cared for home.
Dear Debbie and Guests,
The pleasure was all our! Rainer and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our rental.
Thank you for leaving everything so nice and in order. You are welcome back anytime in the future.
Warm Regards, Sonja and Rainer
