Our house is one of the original Mill Valley authentic artisan homes with a rich history. It was once a barn (hence the rustic appearance and all the beautiful wood). It is a tranquil, creative, and restful place filled with artisan and unique touches. It is a private modern day bohemian get away.
Your private, locked guest suite (that is seperate from the main part of our house) comes equipped with a brand new Smart TV with basic cable. Good Wi-Fi included. The queen size bed is super comfortable with a firm mattress, thick temperpedic mattress topper, and a fluffy warm down comforter. The deep and generous clawfoot bathtub is the perfect relaxing place for a hot bath after a day of being out and about.
Being that we are in the woods and canyon, Verizon is the best cell phone connection. Texting works great.
In your efficiency kitchen there is a microwave, electric hotwater kettle, and an under-counter refrigerator. When you arrive, there will be organic fruit (when available/in season), organic granola, local Clover milk (please let me know if you need soy or another type of 'milk'), Peets Coffee, and an assortment of teas waiting for you. There is also dishware for any takeout food/drink you may want to bring in.
You are welcome to use the washer/dryer (upon request) and we will gladly let you use our iron and ironing board if you need it.
There is a very efficient gas wall heater and an overhead ceiling fan to circulate the air.
Parking is easy and safe. There is a generous space for you to park on the wide driveway that is off the main road.
You are welcome to use the Bamboo garden. It is a great place to hang out! Please do not go into the adjoining main garden without our permission as that is our private area.
Interaction with guests
We are often available, but not always. As there are hand-made door latches and other quirky things, we want to be there to show you how they work and answer any questions you may have.
We both work out of our home and have variable schedules. So, just a heads up... if we are working, we will gladly answer your texts or personally fill you in when we are available.
- Absolutely no smoking of any kind or any open flame anywhere on the property.
- Always make sure that the front and garden door is latched and secured so that it does not slam open and shut.
- Our space can only accommodate 2 guests. Please do not add more to your stay.
- Please be sensitive to the neighbors. Speak quietly when in the garden and allow for quiet time after 10:00pm.
I love living in Mill Valley. Having been born and raised here, it has become a deep part of me. My husband (Alan) and I have both lived in many cities throughout the United States and abroad. We love adventure and really enjoy hosting fellow travelers.
This area has so much to offer. I love going to Comedy at the Throckmorton Theatre every Tuesday night to laugh out loud with the other regulars as well as first timers. The First Tuesday Art Walks are so much fun and you always end up meeting someone interesting!
Having gone to college back East, traveling to Japan, India, and Europe as well as living in New York City for 11 years, I really appreciate what the world has to offer. Whether it be urban or country, I am always curious and enjoy it all!
