ReviewsWrite a review
My husband and I stayed at this property for three months while waiting to move into our new home and it could not have been more lovely, well equipped and fresh, with views to die for. Our host, Ruby, was as welcoming and helpful as she could possibly be. And the proximity to both San Francisco and some of the world's most beautiful hiking trails makes it an ideal location. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Owner response: It was my pleasure hosting you Barbara and Hugh. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our property. Thank you for taking good care of the house.
The most striking thing about the house is the view. It's great and constantly changing with the weather. The house is comfortable and communal with the open floor plan of kitchen, dining area, living area. It has all the features to make daily life easy. Mill Valley is really special. It has a small town feel with a huge amount of parkland nearby especially Mt Tam. There's lots to do close by since the house is between Sausalito and Mill Valley, parking in Sausalito it difficult. I recommend parking a distance from Bridgeway and walking a little extra. Not to leave out San Francisco about twenty minutes away across the Golden Gate Bridge. Recommended!

Year Purchased: 2006
About: We moved to Mill Valley in 1998. We love the area so much that we owned properties within a 2 mile radius of our current location. We started with a 1BD/1BA condo, located across the bay from this house. In 2001, we upgraded to a single family home with lots of trees in the backyard. In 2006, we purchased this property which is our favorite so far and would like to share our home as your base for exploring the Bay area.
Why Mill Valley:
We love the panoramic view of the bay, which extends all the way to the East Bay on a clear day. The reflection of the moon on the water is such a spectacular sight. The house is the right size for us and the location is awesome.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy access to Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Tennessee Valley Trail head, Sausalito, Tiburon, Angel Island, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Mt. Tamalpais, Point Reyes National Sea Shore, Napa, Sonoma. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey & Carmel and 4 hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.
