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.

Warm, Cozy, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful is the best way to describe Mary's home. Beautiful garden, deer everyday, and the sunrises and sunsets were incredible. We were looking for a place were we and our adult children could comfortably spend our holidays cooking, playing games, and connecting. We found it all here. Honestly we barely left. But if you choose to venture out the location is ideal. Close to everything San Francisco, Mt. Tam, Napa etc. But trust me you will never want to leave. Thanks Mary for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. It warms my heart when someone enjoys my nest as I do. You GOT IT. Aren't I the lucky one. And I am grateful each day. Thank you for letting me know about the broken glass. Part of the game of living. No problem. It is just a "thing". Best wishes for 2016. Mary

Great Place to Stay !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for somewhere to spend your days in the San Francisco area I highly recommend Mary's place. The view is great, the neighborhood is quite and there are several things to see close by. The house is well equipped with linens and cooking utensils, plus there is a great Safeway store close by for your grocery shopping. Mary is a great host and should we return to the area we'll try to book it again.
