You will be amazed at how this conveniently located property feels so peaceful and remote. You can enjoy it with your family, as a romantic hideaway or well earned retreat. It is only 20 minutes from San Francisco, 1 mile from downtown Mill Valley, 30 minutes to the Beach or Muir Woods. An excursion to the wine country is just 45 minutes away.
The home offers 5 lovely guest rooms that are included in the basic rental rate. The master has wonderful views of Mount Tam, a private fireplace and Jacuzzi tub. The other guest rooms also have great views and their own full bathrooms with bath tubs. All the rooms are spacious, bright and warm. 3 guest rooms are on the top floor with all day sun and spectacular views, the other 2 are on the entry level of this gorgeous roomy 3 level home.
For larger groups of 11, a detached small guest cottage with a twin bed can be made available. The cottage is on the entry level with a separate entrance. The guest cottage is bright and sunny and shares the bathroom with the 5th bedroom.
The home is advertised as 5 bedrooms, but the owner is willing to work with individual needs and credit back if all bedrooms are not needed. (We can credit back rooms not needed after booking). Feel free to contact the owner to discuss this possibility.
*The 5th bedroom can be closed off from the main home with an accordion door and the owner occasionally keeps it for her use when all 5 bedrooms are not needed. If this is arranged, the owner does not have access to the public areas of the primary residence during rentals.
You will want to cook up a storm in the gorgeous kitchen. Counters are granite, cabinets maple and the views, spectacular. The kitchen is open, airy and enjoys all day sun. There is a formal dining room with a gorgeous custom chenille mahogany wood table, living room with sunken fireplace, and cozy family room with a wood burning stove.
The home is spacious with high ceilings, views in every direction hardwood floors and plush carpets in the family room and bedrooms. It is casually elegant with the outside incorporated within. Pictures simply cannot capture the lovely and peaceful ambiance experienced immediately when you enter the front door.
This sun-drenched home offers world class hiking and mountain biking right from the front porch. There are so many day trips and outside adventures available, but you will have a hard time leaving the sun and tranquility of the many decks and pool. Many a day I have gazed at the fog far off in the distance horizon reminding me that my sun drenched home is a magical enclave of warm sunny skies.
In keeping with the gorgeous setting, the home itself is 'green'. The cleaning products are all natural with no artificial fragrances, the soaps are scented with all natural organic lavender essential oil and detergents are fragrance free. The pool is solar heated and cleaned with a silver mineral system instead of chlorine.
Please be aware that the home is not available for weddings, parties or noisy gatherings to protect my neighbors' right to enjoy the canyon's quiet, peaceful location.
Treat your self, your family, your friends; come share my spot of heaven on earth.
