                                                            Robert E.

                                                            We really enjoyed our stay here. The hosts were very accommodating and even sources some extra baby gear for us as we were traveling with small children. The location of this house is truly incredible - you feel as though you are in a national park as you are surrounded by towering redwoods. In less than 5 minutes you can be on beautiful walking trails with streams and small waterfalls and at the same time you can walk to downtown Mill Valley in less than 15mins (and it is a flat walk unlike a lot of MV) while also having easy access by car to SF. The house itself is comfortable, inviting, and just generally has a nice relaxing feel to it. Would definitely stay here again if we have the chance!

                                                            An absolutely stunning atmosphere.

                                                            A very warm and inviting home, nestled in the redwoods. My family spent our Christmas vacation here. A perfect place for a cozy gathering. Thank you, Alisa!

                                                            Our extended family had a wonderful stay. It was a great location for both wine country and San Francisco. I would highly recommend.

                                                            We had such an incredible time at Alisa & Brian's place. The house is big, spacious and beautiful, and the outdoor areas are so peaceful. Coming up from Los Angeles, this was such a treat - I only wish we would have stayed longer! A very short drive into mill valley's downtown area, and only a few minutes walk from beautiful trails, it's perfectly located. Alisa was so helpful and communicative throughout the whole process. Would definitely stay here again!
