Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Mary was very friendly and there to greet us upon arrival. She was very helpful with questions about the house and surrounding area. It is an easy drive into the city. Was nice to come back to the house and relax with a beautiful view after a day of site seeing.

Eclectic, charming and cozy home with a gorgeous view.

  • 5 of 5

Mary’s home reflects her artistic nature. The fireplace and comfy couch with pillows and blankets make for a cozy living space. The bedrooms are comfortable. The upstairs bedroom has an amazing view. The bathroom upstairs has gorgeous tile. The kitchen is well equipped. This is our second visit to this special home. We will be back. The owner is delightful.

Beautiful hillside home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our daughter, son-in-law and their kids (toddler and infant) for 3 nights. Mary was a wonderful host, and her home brimming with a treasure trove of momentos and handicrafts. We enjoy the comfortable, beautiful surroundings, from the deck overlooking the water and beautiful sunrises, to Mary’s collection of bongo drums and games, to the comfy beds and well stocked kitchen. The location was perfect, close to Muir Woods, Marin headlands, Sausalito, and Mt Tamalpais. We also enjoyed the town of Mill Valley, with nice restaurants and boutiques, and a great market for carry out meals. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Art gallery with a view

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed all the art and sculpture pieces on display. I don't know if the owner did the decorating but if so she's very talented. The garden and landscaping were marvelous. The view of Richardson Bay was greatly appreciated, especially at night with all the lights. The steep and narrow road up to the house was a lot of fun to navigate, not for the faint of heart but we got a kick out of it. Very convenient home base if you're heading to San Fransisco or Point Reyes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind remarks. I'm afraid my decor is a little cluttered but each piece has a story and hard to give it up since I live here when not rented.
