Property description

DOWNTOWN...FLAT...SUNNY...
This quiet and charming freestanding 1 bedroom garden cottage is located in the flat and sunny area of beautiful downtown Mill Valley - just minutes from San Francisco! It is beautifully furnished and comes completely equipped with a nice chef's kitchen.
With over 850 square feet, it is more than three times as large as a typical hotel room and offers plenty of ample space. You'll have a complete large chef's kitchen, a sunny dining room, a large living room, one bedroom and as an added bonus a light filled sunroom to relax.

!!!IMPORTANT information for booking inquiries - please read!!!:
The maximum occupancy is 2 adults. Also, please include information about the purpose of your trip in your inquiry (business trip, family visit, tourist, etc.) since we feel much more comfortable renting to someone we 'know' than to a complete stranger ;-). It also helps us to know what you might expect from your stay.

UPDATE: VRBO has installed an automatic 'book it now' feature - since we now only have a few hours time to accept the 'book it now' request we'll automatically decline every 'book it now' request that doesn't have additional information about your group or stay.
Also, though the cottage has 2 queen size sofa beds in addition to the queen size bed in the bedroom we only rent to more than 2 people under special circumstances (for example, you are renting the cottage for a longer time and have a family member visit for a weekend) and only with our explicit approval prior to renting the house. We only rent to adults, not to families with young children, sorry. An additional charge of $15/person/night occurs. Please make sure to mention this prior to renting the house!

We also require a signed and initialed hard copy of the online rental agreement.

The cottage:
This is a completely freestanding small house, not an attached 'studio/apartment': 1 bedroom, one large living room with fireplace, an extra sun room and a separate dining room connected to the large chefs kitchen. Enjoy beautiful hardwood floors, a bathtub and a sweet backyard garden.


About the cottage:
The cottage is in a very quiet location at the end of the property behind the main house with a big private space for outdoor seating. Your own small basement with washer and dryer offers additional secure storage space for bikes or surfboards. The owner lives in the main house in the front of the property.

Located in the middle of Mill Valleys most desirable neighborhoods Sycamore and Boyle Park it is very close to playgrounds, tennis courts and a golf course. Trailheads and bike paths along the Bay are nearby. Walk in 5 minutes to bustling Downtown Mill Valley Plaza and Depot, Whole Foods, shops and boutiques, coffee shops, Library, Mill Valley Art and Film Festival, Mill Valley Market, Community Center with pool and gym, clubs (2 am, Sweetwater), schools, and excellent restaurants (Molino, El Paseo, Balboa Cafe and many others...). Boyle Park is just across the street, Sycamore Park with a nice playground is around the corner.

The bus stop to San Francisco or San Rafael is 1 block down the street and the Golden Gate Bridge only 10 minutes away by car. San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon, Corte Madera, Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, Marin General Hospital, College of Marin are all only minutes away by car and you could bike as well!

Rate details:
For stays less than 30 nights: 10% TOT tax plus 2% tourist tax are collected if applicable

International travelers welcome! We speak English and German.

Restrictions:
Please inquire about the minimum stay requirements. Longer stays are welcome too, but we limit it to a maximum stay of 3 months. If staying for a longer time up to 3 months please understand that this is a fully furnished cottage and that you can't 'move in' with all of your belongings, house stock, furniture etc.. Wedding parties/rehearsal dinners/business meetings and parties can NOT be held at the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Mill Valley, CA, USA:
Mill Valley was voted by CNN to be one of the top ten most desirable places to live in the Nation: CNN/Money magazine noted ”VIP's in the film and music industries are flocking to what not so long ago was a hangout for artists and reformed hippies just 14 miles from the Golden Gate.' The magazine adds, 'Yet most residents are interested in maintaining the town's low-key, back-to-nature atmosphere. Think fleece and flip-flops, not fur and stilettos.' However, what sold us to Mill Valley was its unique location with close proximity to San Francisco, the ocean and Stinson Beach and its European 'walk and bike everywhere, shop in nice stores, eat in cute little restaurants and talk to your friendly neighbors' atmosphere. Being here is like living an everyday vacation with endless options for getaways and activities: Salmon watching or Hiking in Muir Woods, Whale Watching in Point Reyes, Sailing, Boating, Fishing, Biking, Riding, Golf, Surfen, Mount Tamalpais State Park, San Francisco Sight Seeing, Wine Tasting in Napa or Sonoma County, Skiing in Tahoe.....

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
While staying at the cottage there is literally no need for a car: Everything in downtown Mill Valley is in close walking distance, even trails to Mount Tamalpais and bus stops to San Francisco or San Rafael are nearby. Enjoy outdoor living and relaxed, friendly people in Mill Valley.
