Mill Valley cottage description

DOWNTOWN...FLAT...SUNNY...

This quiet and charming freestanding 1 bedroom garden cottage is located in the flat and sunny area of beautiful downtown Mill Valley - just minutes from San Francisco! It is fully furnished and comes completely equipped.

With over 850 square feet, it is more than three times as large as a typical hotel room. The maximum occupancy is 2 adults or a family with up to two small children. If traveling with children we ask kindly to specifically mention them in your inquiry. Also, please include information about the purpose of your trip in your inquiry (business trip, family visit, tourist, etc.) since we feel much more comfortable renting to someone we 'know' than to a complete stranger ;-). It also helps us to know what you might expect from your stay.

This is a completely freestanding small house, not an attached 'studio/apartment': 1 bedroom, one large living room with wood burning fireplace (and a queensize convertible sofa), an extra sun room and a separate breakfast room connected to the large chefs kitchen. Enjoy beautiful hardwood floors, a bathtub and a sweet backyard garden.
For children we offer the following sleeping arrangements at no extra cost: 1) 1 pack-n-play for babies, 2) twin size mattress on the floor either next to the masterbed or in the sunroom for younger children or 3)queensize converted sofabed in the living room for older children.


The cottage is quietly and private set at the end of the property behind the main house with a big private space for outdoor seating. Your own small basement with washer and dryer offers additional secure storage space for bikes or surfboards. The owner lives in the main house in front of the property.

Located in the middle of Mill Valleys most desirable neighborhoods Sycamore and Boyle Park it is very close to playgrounds, tennis courts and a golf course. Trailheads and bike paths along the Bay are nearby. Walk in 5 minutes to bustling Downtown Mill Valley Plaza and Depot, Whole Foods, shops and boutiques, coffee shops, Library, Mill Valley Art and Film Festival, Mill Valley Market, Community Center with pool and gym, clubs (2 am, Sweetwater), schools, first class restaurants (El Paseo!, Balboa Cafe and many others...). Boyle Park is just a short walk away, Sycamore Avenue is around the corner.

The bus stop to San Francisco or San Rafael is 1 block down the street and the Golden Gate Bridge only 10 minutes away by car. San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon, Corte Madera, Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, Marin General Hospital, College of Marin are all only minutes away by car and you could bike as well!


International travelers welcome! We speak English and German.
Please inquire about the minimum stay requirements. Longer stays are welcome, too:
Many of my guests choose to stay between 1 and 3 months, however, we limit it to a maximum of 4 months.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley:
                  Mill Valley was voted by CNN to be one of the top ten most desirable places to live in the Nation: CNN/Money magazine noted ”Dotcom millionaires and power couples in the film and music industries are flocking to what not so long ago was a hangout for artists and reformed hippies just 14 miles from the Golden Gate.' The magazine adds, 'Yet most residents are interested in maintaining the town's low-key, back-to-nature atmosphere. Think fleece and flip-flops, not fur and stilettos.' However, what sold us to Mill Valley was its unique location with close proximity to San Francisco, the ocean and Stinson Beach and its European 'walk and bike everywhere, shop in high end stores, eat in cute little restaurants and talk to your friendly neighbors' atmosphere. Being here is like living an everyday vacation with endless options for getaways and activities: Salmon watching or Hiking in Muir Woods, Whale Watching in Point Reyes, Sailing, Boating, Fishing, Biking, Riding, Golf, Surfen, Mount Tamalpais State Park, San Francisco Sight Seeing, Wine Tasting in Napa or Sonoma County, Skiing in Tahoe.....

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  While staying at the cottage there is literally no need for a car: Everything in downtown Mill Valley is in close walking distance, even trails to Mount Tamalpais and bus stops to San Francisco or San Rafael are nearby. Enjoy outdoor living and relaxed, friendly people in Mill Valley.
