This freshly remodeled semi-attached cottage features a beautiful garden setting in the desirable Strawberry section of Mill Valley. The fully furnished and equipped property borders open space - deer are sighted almost daily! It's quiet and peaceful yet only 6 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco!
Easy parking and quick access to the coast, Mount Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, and the wine country further north. The bus stop and shopping center is a 5 minute walk.
Ideal for up to two Bay Area vacationers, friends visiting the area, or house-hunters. We also have lots of 'newbie' grandparents! No worries, this cottage is upscale, not 'funky.' No stairs, steps or narrow mountain roads to contend with either!
Please call about availability since we occasionally neglect the calendar function.
'This is a very comfortable, quiet, well equipped cottage with helpful and accommodating owners. The location and freeway access are ideal. We will stay there again next time we are in Marin.' M.R.- S. California

Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley: It's proximity to San Francisco is very convenient while its setting in Marin adjoins rural open space. Marin County is our favorite place in the world - and we've been almost everywhere!
