Mill Valley is a picturesque California town of 14,000 residents and creative hideaway situated on the eastern slope of Mount Tamalpais. Nestled among redwoods, hills and canyons, Mill Valley is only ten minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco, yet less than one hour from Sonoma and Napa Wine Country.

Historical Mill Valley has a unique village charm as well as its human environment-uniquely combining tranquility and liveliness, privacy and community involvement. Starting in 1905 with The Dipsea Race, the first cross-country race in the country, Mill Valley has a rich cultural tradition with the Mountain Play in 1913, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 1957, the Marin Theatre Company, a professional regional theatre in 1966, the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1978 and the 142 Throckmorton Theatre recently revived, although in existence since 1915. Re-opened in February 2012, after a lengthly absence, is the Sweetwater Music Hall located in the remodeled Masonic Hall right down town.

Mill Valley is surrounded by the picturesque City of Sausalito, 10 minutes south and the Town of Tiburon 10 minutes east with Angel Island State Park only a one mile ride (via Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry), all on San Francisco Bay. Although Mill Valley is close to San Francisco, it is adjacent to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and only 10 minutes to the Muir Woods National Monument and Tennessee Valley Trail head, 20 minutes to Muir Beach, or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach and less than an hour to Point Reyes National Sea Shore. Mill Valley is only a 2-1/2 hour day trip to Monterrey and Carmel and four hours to spectacular Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this amazing, aesthetically pleasing house. Sometimes there were quite a few of us as my sister and her grandchildren were with us for the initial five days. After that, for nearly two weeks, it was just my husband and me. In both cases, we were delighted with the layout, the amenities and the pure beauty of our surroundings, both inside and out. Sally and Michael were welcoming and quick to respond to our (few) requests. We cooked many meals in the well-stocked kitchen, and enjoyed reading and painting on the deck amongst the greenery when the weather was good. We walked to town for coffee, for dinner, to the craft supply store and the bookshop. We were able to set out from our doorstep for hikes in the redwoods. Being so close to San Fransisco was a real plus. Thank you for sharing this remarkable corner of the universe. We certainly hope to return next year.

Close to everything, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The suite is easy walking distance down the street from all the little shops and restaurants in the town of Mill Valley. This was very convenient for us. Our deck was beside tall redwoods and a very nice hillside garden with a trickling water fountain and several bird feeders. It was nice to have our breakfasts on the deck, in the sunshine while watching the birds. The suite is well laid out with all you need for your stay. The living room TV is good quality with all the channels you'd ever need. Sally and Michael were close by and responsive to any little request we had. Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

Beautiful Mill Valley Retreat close to San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. It was walking distance ( just a couple of blocks) away from downtown Mill Valley which had so much to offer ( restaurants, shopping, salons, market) but was so close to all of the tourist attractions of San Francisco! We loved the house- it was clean, charming, and relaxing and to be honest the pictures do not do it justice! Sally and Michael were so sweet and accommodating. We had some unexpectedly hot weather ( foreign to San Francisco) and they dropped off two standing, rotating fans to make sure our infants were comfortable.

We highly recommend staying here, and we hope to come back in the future!!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Once again we loved our stay in Mill Valley. Sally and Michael are the perfect hosts who are responsive but never intrusive. The amenities are all that we could ask for: laundry, cooking, and daily living. The proximity to downtown Mill Valley gives walking access to all the shops and restaurants. We get the newspaper every morning before breakfast; I take my daily walk climbing the step lanes or just following the hillside streets.

We are a 10-minute drive away from our son, daughter-in-law and grandson. We can see them whenever we wish but have a wonderfully comfortable place of our own to retreat to when they are busy. We love it!

And the temperatures in the 60's and 70's are so welcome after the 100 degree heat we have at home in the summer. How nice is that!

Loved the property, loved the location, loved the town! It was the perfect place for our family of 5 adults. Explored San Fran area during the day and loved coming back here to eat and relax at night. I lived on the gorgeous deck. Owners were very helpful and responsive.

Literally the most charming VRBO we've ever seen!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this property extremely charming, but it is clean as a whistle. It's beautifully decorated inside and out. Inside there is a new, well equipped kitchen and gorgeous bathrooms. All of the decorating is so tasteful- there were even fresh flowers in vases for our arrival. The outside gardens are beautiful and cozy with a heater if the temps are cool. Located just a short walk from town, this house is convenient to everything. I can't wait to rent here again!
