Property description

Nestled on the hill above the town, this secluded and private 1 bedroom apartment is the true essence of Mill Valley. Our guest apartment is situated in a lush quiet setting looking out over town through wooded treetops. While inside you will enjoy the greenery that surrounds you and the warm welcoming light that cascades in from the large windows & doors. Its central location to shopping, great restaurants, Mt Tam, beaches and the Wine Country, allow the convenience of all that the Northern Bay Area has to offer. Your retreat is thoughtfully appointed, allowing you to enjoy all the comforts of home. Enjoy an open floor plan of a large living room with dining area off a well equipped kitchen equipped with all you might need to create your gourmet meal. Full bath with shower. (With a separate plumbed outdoor claw foot tub on the deck). There is one big bedroom with a queen size bed and a separate day bed. With two decks off the living area there is plenty of out door space to enjoy entertaining, relaxing with a good book or watching the deer graze in the yard. Our convenient location, open and well appointed environment along with its affordable price makes for a great value here in beautiful Mill Valley.
Please be aware that Mill Valley consists of many tiny streets covering the hillsides-the streets are narrow and most are 2 way. It can be very intimidating when driving up and down the hills. Accidents rarely happen as people are very accustom to these streets but to a visitor they can be daunting. Use caution at all times. The parking in front is first come first serve so if there are no spaces, try parking further up the hill.

Keywords: House-Lower Unit- located on a small street above the quaint town of Mill Valley. Peaceful and private surrounded by nature yet so close to town you can smell the coffee. Easy access to SF, bus, ferry's Mt Tam and Muir Woods. Less than an hour to wine country. Mill Valley is a valley town and the roads are all very small and windy as they traverse the hills above town. An economy car can be less daunting for those unaccustomed to driving on narrow roads.
