Property description

Our home was extensively remodeled in 2005 and has all the modern amenities. It is professionally cleaned weekly. It is located in the Strawberry area of Mill Valley, very close to Tiburon. You can drive to San Francisco in 10 minutes, or take the Tiburon or Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco, which is a 20 minute ride across the bay. Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Pt. Reyes, Napa, Sonoma, Mount Tamalpais are all minutes away. Carmel, Monterey, and Lake Tahoe are a 3 hour drive away.

The rental is for a 5 bedroom and 3 bath home, but will not include the walk in closet off the master bathroom which will be locked. 1 California King, 1 queen, a bunk bed (with queen bed on the bottom bunk), and two rooms with single beds.

The kitchen has all top-of-the-line appliances: Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine fridge, Wolf stove, warming drawer, 42' HD flat screen TV, etc. Counters are all granite/marble. It is fully equipped with high-end pots and pans and all sorts of cooking gadgets.

The upstairs playroom has a 50' HD flat screen TV with DVD and Apple TV. The entire house has high speed Wi-Fi with Blast, Comcast's highest WiFi speed available. We will also leave the computer printer/scanner for your use.

The yard is well landscaped and comes with Green Egg BBQ and outdoor dining table. The rear pathway doubles as a bocce ball court. The house is also serviced by roof mounted solar panels.

Unlike other homes in Mill Valley which can be 15 minutes from the freeway (30 with traffic), our home's location is ideal for getting to and from San Francisco & the wine country. You can be in San Francisco in about 12 minutes and in the Sonoma/Napa Valley wine country in less than 30 minutes. In addition, you are minutes away from Mill Valley's incredible hiking trails such as the Dipsea Trail & Muir Woods.

In fact, you can bike from our house along the Blackie's Pasture bike path all the way to the Tibruon Ferry Terminal (3.5 miles), which has 12 trips daily to San Francisco. You can take your bikes on the ferry, which is a 20 minute ride to San Francisco.

The more adventurous visitors can ride your bikes from San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, to our house (14 miles from San Francisco Ferry Building)

Mill Valley was just named one of the 20 best small towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine!

We are hoping to rent out our home during the summer of 2015.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I grew up in Mill Valley and now live here with my wife and four kids.

Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley:
* Entire house was recently remodeled. * Very easy access to San Francisco, wine country, etc. * Very close to grocery market & retail shops. * Private, quiet, and secluded corner lot. Since this is our home, we prefer to rent to groups of 8 or less. Prior to sending you a rental contract, we would like to touch base with you on the phone so that we can find a bit more about your group and your visit, etc. Since I grew up in the area, I could offer you helpful suggestions about activities, restaurants, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike many homes in Mill Valley that can get trapped by summer traffic, our home has very easy access to highway 101. It is just up the road from the Strawberry Village Shopping Center which is home to Antica Pizza, Starbucks, Thep Laila Thai Food, Pasta Pomordoro, Safeway, Woody's Frozen Yogurt, and 50 retail tenants. At the same time the house is perfectly secluded, private and quiet.
