About the property

Brand New 1 bedroom flat near fabulous North Bay attractions

Serene and Spacious brand new apartment.

The flat has a separate entrance and is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood at the intersection of Tamalpais Valley and Tennessee Valley in the lower level of our wooden A-Frame home. Our family lives on the 2nd & 3rd floors. There are approximately 30 steps from the street to the apartment patio and and everything is very private, nestled behind a canopy of Bay trees.

Local deer and wild turkeys roam the hills and streets of Tam Valley. You may be lucky enough to spot the odd fox, coyote or raccoon at night from your private patio.

Enjoy the many biking and hiking trails nearby which take you along the Coast to some of Marin's favorite destinations. We even have a trailhead a few minutes away that leads to the Miwok Trail which we hike on a regular basis.

The apartment is well appointed, clean and brand new. It has radiant heat floors, 100% wool carpets and limestone tile and is cleaned with only eco-friendly products. We are committed to sustainable living and when possible use quality natural ingredients. Paper Towels and Bath Tissue are 100% Post-Consumer recycled fiber from Marcal and Cleaning products are sourced from local people against dirt, Method.

The bedroom features a super comfortable mattress and duvet and has plenty of closet space.

The 3 seater living room sofa easily turns into a second small queen bed, perfect to share. There are also 2 chairs for additional seating. There is a coffee table which could double as the kid's table or pulled between the seating areas to play games or eat pizza while watching a movie on the flat screen TV.

Enjoy the reading and games nook complete with a kid's arts and crafts table. Lots of books for all ages and games for the whole family to play.

The dining table accommodates 4 and can be pushed against the wall for a smaller footprint. All 4 bench chairs fit underneath for easy storage.

There is a kitchenette with microwave, toaster oven, small refrigerator, sink, kettle and french press coffee maker -- with service for 4.

You will love the bathroom. It has natural light coming in from a very large window, is painted a soft sage green with beautiful accent tile throughout. The shower gives hot water on demand from the eco-boiler and there is powerful water pressure. There is also a separate WC/toilet in the European tradition.

Enjoy this bright, clean and uncluttered apartment. We look forward to meeting you.

About Donna Coxon-McCory

We moved to Tamalpais Valley from San Francisco in 2003 when we bought our A-frame home. We loved that just minutes from the City, we could be living in what felt like the countryside, complete with views of Mt. Tamalpais and rolling hills to hike. We love our neighborhood and how close it is to Stinson Beach, Muir Beach, Muir Woods, Sausalito.... the list goes on. It's a great launching point for exploring the many cute towns and attractions in our area, with Wine Country only 45 minutes to the North and Russian River Valley about 60 minutes drive.

We hope you'll enjoy your stay with us!

John, Donna and Adrian

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything worked out just fine.

I would have to say this is definitely the cleanest place we’ve ever stayed at and the high ceilings were certainly a plus giving it an open feeling.

I think you did a super job in converting this into a worthwhile rental.

Beautiful modern space

  • 5 of 5

The space was perfect for our family of four. There were some games available for the kids, and they both loved the sea sounds cd. The kitchen was small but well appointed. The bathroom was split with a separate toilet room vs sink and tub/shower room. It was all very clean and modern and comfortable. The host was always quick to reply and helpful in answering our questions about the area. There is a parking space provided for guests so we never had to worry about finding a spot.

We enjoyed 12 nights at this apartment and were very comfortable. It's a quiet place yet close to everything. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Would definitely recommend and hope to return next summer.

It was very comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The area is beautiful and quaint. A comfortable Home Away from Home, not to mention a bottle of wine waiting for us after a long day of hiking Mt.Tamalpias. All and all a definite 5+
