PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR TO SEE IF YOUR DATE IS AVAILABLE. I keep it current. Thanks!

Cozy furnished studio in-law unit two blocks from Downtown Mill Valley - a beautiful town a 15 minute drive north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge. Restaurants, Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club, cafes, shopping, trail heads, movie theater, comedy club/live theater all within walking distance. You can't beat the location. This is a one room unit with hardwood floors, 1 queen sized bed, 1 queen sized futon bed, kitchenette with mini-fridge, sink, microwave, coffee maker, cable TV with HBO, table for 2, and a bathroom with shower. This studio is a ground level unit in a 3 unit building with a separate entrance. Wireless internet access and parking provided. Pack and play,, and air mattress available upon request.

It's perfect for parents visiting their children/grandchildren in the area, or for wedding guests attending the Outdoor Art Club. With nice linens, plush towels, it's much more welcoming and homey than a hotel room.

Easy driving access to San Francisco sight-seeing, and to beautiful Marin scenery and wildlife. 15 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument old growth redwood forest, and to beautiful Muir Beach. 5 minute drive to Golden Gate National Recreation Area hiking trails, including Tennessee Valley Road trail, where an easy 1 3/4 mile hike takes you to the beach. 8 to 10 minute drive to downtown Sausalito - explore stores in charming downtown Mill Valley, or walk by the bay on the Sausalito marina. There are ferries to SF leaving from Sausalito and Larkspur.

A 45 minute drive takes you to wine country in Sonoma or Napa, or to the Point Reyes National Seashore.

The unit on the ground floor (no stairs) of a 2 story, 3 unit building. There is a family with 2 children living on the second floor so expect to hear some activity in the mornings getting ready for school and between 5-8pm after they are home. One of the families has a hypoallergenic, well behaved, indoor dog. If you have a similarly well-behaved, child/other dog friendly pet, we would consider letting him/her stay for an extra deposit and $50 cleaning fee.

About owner/property manager

We have been living in the bay area for the past 15 years, in San Francisco for 14 of them so please ask us for insider tips if you plan to visit SF. We got married in Mill Valley, adopted our dog in Mill Valley, and are now back living here with 2 kids. I do marketing consulting for natural food and beverage companies and love to play tennis and hike. My husband is a software engineer who loves kite surfing and playing the drums. We have two boys who love to swim, and ride around with us on our bikes.

owner/property manager purchased this studio in 2010

Why owner/property manager chose San Francisco Bay Area

We bought this studio so we could accommodate family and friends when they come to visit us and rent it out when it isn't being used.

What makes this studio unique

2 blocks from downtown Mill Valley, 15 minute drive to Muir Woods, 20 minutes to San Francisco, 45 minute drive to Napa. Really, you can't beat the location.

a little disappointed

  • 2 of 5

Felt like the kitchen was not stocked well, didn't even have a can opener.

It said it slept three, but didn't realize the third person would be on the floor

Owner's Response: Hi Sorry about the can opener! We could have brought one down had you let us know. As for the 3rd person the listing clearly says that there is a queen bed with a futon that pulls out onto the floor, so sorry you missed that. Thanks Lynn

Very clean and convenient to downtown Mill Valley

  • 3 of 5

Sadly there was a barking dog in the main house that was easily aroused and barked frequently. I would have hoped for one additional light on the outside walkway when coming home after dark. I hope that you find the individual that is relieving their dog right outside your front gate.

10 minutes from Bob Weir's Sweetwater, easy commute, 5 minute walk downtown. dog friendly.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our Irish setter stayed six nights. I lived in Mill Valley in the 1970s and we visit frequently. I was attending a conference in the City and needed a comfortable place and an easy commute. I had just a 5 minute walk to the commuter bus each morning in the center of town. My wife was able to walk our setter around town easily, take him quickly to the Marin Headlands in 15-20 minutes, get a coffee at the Depot or Peets in a 6-7 minute walk. Each evening I was dropped off back in town and walked 5 minutes back to the studio. We had just one issue...no internet, and we were immediately given an alternative password. The kitchenette is limited but works and there are lots of places to get food. Whole Foods with an extensive takeout is on the same street...Miller, as is Safeway with their deli. Also close on Miller is Super Duper Burger which also has magnificent veggie burgers. And just 10 minutes away by foot are great restaurants downtown. The refrigerator is the little dorm style and held leftovers just fine, but the freezer was unusable due to thick ice build-up. Perhaps its been addressed by now. If you like live music and great food, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir's Sweetwater club is perhaps a 12 minute walk from the studio. This not a detached unit. The owner's description is a must read. They describe in advance any domestic sounds you may experience. We didn't find it an issue.
