About Julie Austin

We are the owners of a property that has a long, successful history here in Mill Valley. We intend to keep the good times rolling by offering the best service and amenities in the Bay Area! We live in the house on the property that allows us to be available for all traveler needs, but we highly value your privacy!

Julie Austin purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Julie Austin chose California

We chose this property for the same reasons you will. The property is GORGEOUS (with a capital G)! The vacation rental has a feeling of tranquility, of serenity, but has the appeal of also being close to anything you can imagine! Want to go to historic Muir Woods? You'll be 15 minutes from the entrance. Want night life and great shopping? Either drive your car or take the bus (1 block away) to Union Square in downtown San Francisco, 20 minutes away.

What makes this cottage unique

The lovely unit has an expansive front porch, where you'll enter the home and be in the glow of the living room skylight. If it's chilly, start a fire in the wood-burning fireplace. Kick off your shoes and go onto the private back flagstone patio, where you'll be surrounded by rose bushes and bird houses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for 3 nights at the cottage, and we had a great experience. The place was so cute, and decorated really well. It was super clean and quiet, and the bed was great! There are instructions for all the tvs and appliances (we are really bad with tvs, so it helped), and both tvs had full movie channels. It was cool to have that at the end of sightseeing.

Julie was so nice, and so helpful, but was only there when we needed her - she didn't hover :)

Great home, comfortable and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean home. Julie and Noah are delightful hosts and responded promptly to any question but gave us our privacy. The house is so well equipped and many thoughtful things provided, kitchen easy to prepare meals in and the high speed wifi was very much appreciated. Of course the location is ideal for exploring not only Marin county but the proximity to the GG bridge meant easy trips into the city. We have stayed in Mill Valley before but we would love to return to this property.

Ladies Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This little home was everything we needed for our 5 day getaway. It was a great area close to the city, Muir Woods and wine country. It was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The owners are welcoming and warm people. Grocery stores are close by in town. The Mexican Cantina was a great place for mexican food and we had a wonderful breakfast at Dipsea restaurant. We would definitely return for future trips. Thank you Julie and Noah for sharing your beautiful place with us.

Our property is in the most ideal location. We are situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood, walking distance from a gorgeous park. We are also 7 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and 10 from San Francisco proper! We have every possible recreational activity, so a guest can be alone in Muir Woods, or in the middle of Union Square!
