Great little house close to town

  • 5 of 5

Was perfect for our needs as the couple got the bedroom and my friend and I slept on the daybeds just outside for the bedroom. Probably wouldn't be ideal for 2 couples, but great for kids, as the days beds were in a living space and not a separate room. Cottage was very cute on a nice property just a bit outside of downtown.

Great location and lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is in an ideal location in a beautiful wooded residential area a few minutes from the center of Mill Valley. It's a detached cottage on a large beautifully-landscaped lot on which the owner also has a house. The cottage is absolutely lovely, beautifully clean, and quite comfortable. There's a private little outdoor dining patio that overlooks a seasonal creek--and virtually no bugs! The owners are pleasant and helpful. The only reason not to give 5 stars is temporary and may well not affect your visit--construction next door was pretty noisy at times during the day; otherwise it is an extremely quiet location. We very much enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend it.

Everything you want in a vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so lovely and perfect for our weekend getaway. The owner was super helpful and sweet and brought us a bottle of wine upon arrival! The property is walking distance from a very cute downtown area with shops and delicious restaurants. I would love to visit again! Mill Valley was my favorite part of our extended California vacation!

Not so much.

  • 2 of 5

Not too impressed hauling your suitcases up a hill, not having an ice maker or enough ice for the 2 nights we were there. The refrigerator and freezer are very small and noisy. I didn't see a washing machine like advertised. The beds are small. 4 adults were there and we felt we were on top of each other. Keep looking if I were you.

Owner's Response: Very sorry these guests were not pleased with their stay like our other guests have typically been. The driveway is a bit of an incline but has never been mentioned before. However, we will include it on our listing in the future. As to the beds, they are a standard queen size and 2 standard twins as laid out on the description. The icemaker wasn't working and we informed them as such and provided ice and ice trays and told them they could get more whenever they needed it. They never asked again. Finally, our description clearly states that there is not a washer and dryer so not sure where they got that. Again, we strive to make the stay as enjoyable as possible and am sorry it was less than outstanding.
