Car: Recommended

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!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Tamalpais-Homestead Valley, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
