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.

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.

Wonderful option in Mill Valley

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, spacious. The apartment had everything we needed in a quiet residential neighborhood, and was very comfortable. Having a good option for lodging in Tam Valley made our stay so much more fun this time.

Comfortable yet elegant

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the space justice. Just a relaxing place to be and a great base for touring Napa, Muir Woods and San Francisco. I only wish it had been warmer so we could have enjoyed coffee on the porch. And despite being under the trees backing on a hillside, the space was delightfully light. We appreciated having a kitchenette. What a wonderful stay!

Simple accomodations in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Mill Valley at this property. For ease, I have summed up this review with pros/cons:

Pros: Perfect location to visit both SanFrancisco, Sausalito and Napa/Sonoma. The apartment was quiet, clean, and the bed was comfy. Beautiful property covered in trees and very safe.

Cons: Because if the motion sensored lighting, the apartment was abit dark for us. When we turned on the lights, they required time to brighten but unfortunately would turn off before that could happen. It didnt bother us to much since we were always out and about and not at the apartment a lot. The french press coffee maker worked, but a regular coffee maker would have been preferred. No other "negatives" to report!

Lastly, I must make sure to acknowledge the amazing bottle of wine left for us to enjoy. We appreciated this classy sentiment very much.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your thoughts and kind words! Yes, the lights in the bedroom are on a motion detection switch and will time out with no movement in the room for 5 minutes- alas, it's a necessary evil. The two bedside lights and closet light will stay on until turned off, so no one should be in the dark! : ) We're glad you enjoyed your stay, please do feel free to come back and visit any time.

Nice house near the Muir woods

  • 5 of 5

We spend two days in the John Donna and Adrian 's house. It is very clean, beautiful place in good location – close to Muir Woods, 10 min drive to get the downtown, 5 min drive – supermarket and nice local café. And the red wine to welcome us was very touched, thank you! (we just didn’t have time for it, but appreciated )

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!

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.
