Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais. Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.
Historical Mill Valley has a unique village charm as well as its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement. Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre recently revived, although in existence since 1915. Re-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall right down town.
Mill Valley is surrounded by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Sea Shore. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.

We couldn't be happier with our stay! A group of 6 of us stayed over the weekend for my wedding at the Outdoor Art Club. The house is beautiful and well maintained. It is perfectly set up for guests--drawers and closets are empty so you don't feel like you're in someone else's home. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with all the basic necessities. The location also can't be beat--it is within walking distance of everything you need--but still feels like you're in a secluded tree house. Sally was great to work with. She made check in and check out easy and was available for any questions. I highly recommend it!

This was our first VRBO so we were curious and excited about how it would work out. We were there a week. My son, DIL and granddaughter and I were blown away as soon as we arrived. The location is beautiful, redwood trees all around and it just smells good. You enter thru a gate to the deck (after about a 2 story stair climb), nice atmosphere of potted plants and flowers and greens and shrubbery along the hill above the deck. We all had our own bedrooms, mine had french doors onto the deck and a lovely trickling waterfall just outside above the deck. The room was spacious, plenty of room for unpacking (closet and chest of drawers). My granddaughter's room was next door and we shared a great bath with a shower and a separate claw foot tub (great!). Sally made the room very welcoming for a 7 yr old so that she was comfortable immediately and excited to unpack and settle in. My son and DIL were on the other side with a private bath and french doors to that side of the deck. It was great to have a W/D room off the kitchen. Kitchen was well appointed, D/W a pleasure (who wants to wash dishes on vaca). I would say we used the house well while still getting out and doing a lot of things. We had two small gatherings of friends on the deck two nights. It was a perfect setting to eat and lounge and catch up with friends and their kids. We all loved this place, the owners couldn't have been nicer and the town is charming with many great restaurants and some fun shops to see and a bakery near by that managed a red velvet cake for my DIL's B-day with only 2 days notice. We had fabulous weather, love NOCAL in September (I am an East Coast resident but wondering why after this trip and all trips to CA!). This is a great place and I highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay in this sweet home. It felt like a little tree house. The owners were very welcoming and it was helpful that they were on site. We loved being able to walk into town and it was an easy drive into the city. I highly recommend staying at this property!

PERFECT BAY AREA GETAWAY IN THE QUIET OF MILL VALLEY
PERFECT BAY AREA GETAWAY IN THE QUIET OF MILL VALLEY
I rented this wonderful home in MIll Valley with my family of 2 adults and 4 children. The home was a perfect size for us. The owners were incredibly attentive from the moment we reserved their home. When we arrived, there were even a few extra goodies especially tailored to our 4th of July holiday. The home is very clean and cozy with a beautiful outdoor patio that stretches along the two main bedrooms and the living room. The house offers plenty of comfort whether you want to spend a few moments alone resting or gather for some fun in the spacious living areas. The home has just about everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. It is perfect for small families, but would also be a nice retreat for a couple. Mill Valley's renown downtown area of small shops and restaurants is just a 5 minute walk away. If you are planning either a trip to the Bay Area, or just want to get out of the city life for an extended holiday, I think this is the way to go!

Owner response: Dear William, I am so happy that you were able to enjoy the Fourth of July Holiday with your little girls and family. I know you squeezed a lot of sight seeing in for them .We enjoyed having you as guests and wish you all the very best. Kindly Sally and Michael Catalana
We didn't want to leave this gorgeous, beautifully decorated, quiet, plush cottage. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked and it has laundry, which we needed after hiking Mount Tam. It's a quick walk to Whole Foods in one direction and an easy walk into town in the other. The living room and bedrooms all have french doors that open onto a zen garden that offers several outdoor seating areas and a tranquil fountain. Sally and Michael made sure we had everything we needed and recommended some great places to eat. (Our favorite was Mill Valley Beerworks.) We felt like we hit the jackpot with this place. We can't wait to come back!
