About Cherie Simpson
We are blessed to be raising our 3 sons in this wonderful community with it's award winning schools, beautiful scenery, and amazing people. Truly living our dream.
Cherie Simpson purchased this House in 2012
Why Cherie Simpson chose Mill Valley
Mill Valley residents for 17 years, we originally rented the house directly next door to this home and fell in love with Mill Valley, but especially this area, it's weather, and close proximity to downtown in particular. We built a home in a different area of MV, but kept our eyes open knowing that we eventually wanted to return to this area. When this house became available in late 2011 we bought the property almost sight unseen and set about transforming it into our dream home. We spend summers in Newport Beach, Ca, and love to share our home with family and friends.
What makes this House unique
This home is located in the very best micro-climate in Mill Valley, consistently warmer than most areas, with less fog and wind, and generally the first to clear when fog turns to sun. The views are dramatic and inspiring, and it is a very brief walk to downtown, as well as easily accessible to the many trails and paths of Mt. Tamalpais. The Golden Gate Bridge is just 15 minutes away, Muir Woods 15 minutes away, and Wine Country 45 minutes north.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful home in a cool California town
First, Mill Valley is a quintessential Marin County town -laid back, pretty, filled with restaurants, shops, a tiny movie theater. This home is a short walk up the hill from "downtown." Its beautiful and perfect for a family or couple looking for someplace quiet but close to all the natural beauty of Marin. 3 big bedrooms on one level. Kitchen, dining and living room on the other level with balconies overlooking the valley below. We loved it. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. Enjoy.
Perfect home away from home!
This property is wonderful! The house sits in a beautiful, quiet area of Mill Valley. Walking distance from the charming downtown area that feels like a small community versus a touristy area. The downtown has shopping but most of all great restaurants and coffee shops. We especially loved the dog bowls full of water that the store owners set out on the sidewalk for shoppers that bring along their dogs.
The home is exceptionally clean and cared for. Perfectly decorated to feel like a cozy home. The open concept was great with amble room for everyone at the kitchen counter, large dining room table and comfy family room area. The beds were amazingly comfortable. The three bedrooms were perfect for our family of four with more than amble closet space. And bathrooms were beautifully decorated and all seemed fairly new. It truly felt like home! Also an office area with a computer and printer ended up being extremely handy. And the washer/dryer we used through out the week was great.
The views are amazing as you view out over a small valley of trees and up the side of the mountain. The entrance to Muir Woods is just a short drive away. And the drive into San Francisco was usually around 20 minutes. It was nice to visit the city but then escape back to the quiet, charming area of Mill Valley. We ate in the Mill Valley area every night as their are amble restaurants to try...although we kept returning to a favorite. The neighborhood itself is great for walking (narrow curvy street) and viewing some amazing vegetation (that we're not used to seeing) and homes.
The owners are fantastic to work with. They provided great recommendations for restaurants and things to do since it was our first trip to this area. And also provided detailed information on the use of the home, check out, etc.
Parking was not an issue at all as there is a nice car port area for two cars.
I would highly recommend this home!!
Thank you for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed the house and the location. We hope you will return to vacation here again!
Serenity in the mountains
What an amazing place to come home too after a day in the city or an adventure in the forest! Close to everything but far enough that it’s quiet. The main floor was a perfect place to hang out with the family and ring in the New year, the lower level had enough privacy that everyone had their own space.
Thank you Cherie and family for being such great hosts; I recommend this house 100% ( we might even be back next year!)
Thank you Catherine for your kind review. We would be happy to have you back anytime!
Great place to stay while visiting San Francisco
Nice home situated on a hill above the town of Mill Valley, peaceful and clean, but close to everything including getting into the city. Sausalito and Tiburon are nearby if you need more restaurant selection, and wine country is less than an hour by car. The home itself is very nicely appointed, great views, and plenty of deck space to enjoy a wine or beer after a long day of hiking in the city or on Mt. Tamalpais. Our family of five was quite comfortable all week. I would certainly return. The owner is responsive should you need anything.
Amazing location with best of both worlds (nature and access to city)
We had an incredible week with our two boys in this lovely house. It honestly could not have been improved upon. Very close to GG bridge, so easy to access the city. The house itself had unbelievable views of the valley and Mt.Tam, and so staying there felt like we were in a remote cabin. But a lovely 10 minute walk to downtown Mill Valley allowed us to get coffee each morning, and pick a fun restaurant many of the nights. The house is beautifully renovated, with immaculate kitchen and bathrooms. Small touches really made a difference- fresh high quality towels in each bathroom along with new soap and shampoo, all the relevant pots and dishes to make a nice meal, incredibly comfortable beds and lovely responsive owners. We look forward to staying again!
Lakshmi- Thank you so much for the kind review. So glad your family enjoyed their stay!
Better than advertised
The property is located in one of the best streets in Mill Valley, offering some of the most beautiful views we had ever seen. The house is within close probity to shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Equipped with a full kitchen for those who like to cook.
Thank you Rudy for the kind review. It was a pleasure having you and Orisbel as guests.
Mountainbike out the door to some of the best trails in the country. Amazing hiking in every direction.
