Located at the top of the historic Dipsea Steps, this light and bright private guest studio is a lovely retreat, offering beautiful views and a peaceful atmosphere. Walk down the steps, through the redwoods into downtown Mill Valley and enjoy the pretty boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops. Jump on the trails and hike the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods and Stinson Beach.

The space

In a previous life, the studio was once a private recording studio for famed San Francisco band Jefferson Starship's lead guitarist.

Guest access

Guests are free to use garden deck area with hammock and chairs.
(Note: As this area is also accessible to our pets they may come say hello but they are very affectionate and sweet.)

Interaction with guests

We're usually around, in the main house, happy to answer any questions to help make your stay enjoyable.

Other things to note

The property is very dog friendly. We have 3 pooches of all different sizes. They love people, so if you're a dog lover you're in luck. If you don't want interactions with them, no worries, the studio is gated from the main house.

The studio has a small kitchenette with a small refrigerator to chill drinks, a Nespresso machine to make tea or coffee and a small microwave.

The sofa is also a comfy day bed with a beautiful picture view of the valley and mountain.

Best Airbnb! Stay if you can. The most thoughtful details- delicious coffee and milk, cupcakes, plush blankets & robes, big comfy bed, organic toiletries, etc. We loved it.

The place is perfect. We liked the mountain views. The location is perfect it's right down the road from muir woods and Mt. Tam. There are great spots down the hill in town to eat and get coffee. The place it's self has everything you need for a nice getaway.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to stay here because of the Northern CA fires but Sharon and Nick our host understood the situation and gave a full refund even though Airbnb hadn’t approved for it. Look forward to a visit next time.

This studio was perfect for what we needed. Plenty of space and all the amenities you need for a long (or short!) stay. The hosts were very easy going and always available to answer any questions. If we are ever out this way again, we will definitely be looking into booking the studio again!

This is a charming studio, comfortable bed and living area. The view from studio was beautiful Mt Tam and hillsides surrounding Mill Valley. The location was up a winding narrow road, but a once there, walks no trails were just a few yards away.
