    Doggy Heaven

    This property is clean, well-stocked and well maintained. The description states that this property is pet friendly, but that is an understatement - it is doggy heaven. The back gate from the yard goes right into a small (but big enough) dog park. There are a multitude of hikes and walks nearby that are also dog friendly. Even if you don't have dogs, this is a great house in a great location.

    Lovely Mill Valley home away from home

    This was our second stay at this property in Mill Valley and it will not be our last. The home is in a fantastic neighborhood north of the city but only a short drive over the bridge into the city. The owner is very responsive and the house has everything you might need. Two musts if you stay here: first be sure to grab fish tacos at Hook Fish and second, make a reservation at Piazza Piazza D'Angelo for great italian food. We love this house and location - will absolutely rent it again in the future.

    Gardens, parks, walks, location

    Wonderful rental experience with my husband + couple with infant. Well supplied kitchen, walking distance to health oriented grocery store, walking trails and round the bend from Tennessee Valley trail to ocean. Enjoyed the two bikes, clean spacious home, friendly welcoming wine and ease of communication with owner. Beds are comfortable and home is bright. Look forward to returning.

    Great base for exploring San Francisco

    Great location: very close to Muir Woods. Minutes from Tennessee trailhead which was a great hike down to the Pacific Ocean. Also rented and rode bikes into San Francisco from Sausalito. House was clean and tidy and a VERY well-equipped kitchen (we prepared all our own meals). Thea was a great host, helpful and responsive.

    Mill Valley Oasis

    Great spot for our weekend in the San Francisco area. House was clean, comfortable and equipped with everything! Backyard garden was perfect for relaxing and adjacent to park that was ideal for our dog. Our young adult children were happy with the strong WiFi. Thea was easy to communicate with and quick to respond to our questions. Spent most of our time in the city (a 1/2 drive to downtown San Fran after rush hou), but if we had more time would have liked to explore using the ideas left by Thea or the bikes available in the garage.

    Great Location and House

    The location of this house was great. The backyard has a gate to a playground that my daughter loved, we could walk to a grocery store and some great restaurants, and we could drive right out on highway 1 to get to the beaches. The house itself was one of the best stocked vacation rentals I have ever seen. Would definitely stay again.

    Adorable! Like being at home

    Very cozy, bright, comfortable, and pet friendly home, with a very well stocked kitchen for those who cook, new appliances, comfortable beds, good wifi, web-enabled TV's for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, and a quiet neighborhood. The property owner was delightful and very responsive, typically responding within a couple of minutes. Located literally next to a park that is perfect for dogs. Walking distance to Good Earth grocery store (think Whole Foods), several restaurants and coffee shops with outdoor seating, and a Walgreens. We plan to stay here again.
