    I was doing business in San Francisco with my team and we decided to forgo the expensive hotels in the city and stay at this wonderful house. It only took about 30 minutes to get there from the city and it was well worth the wonderfully scenic drive. The owners were extremely easy to work with. In fact, it felt like I was renting from a couple of friends! I will definitely be renting this house again when we are going to San Francisco. By the way, if you stay here be sure to go a short distance up the street to see the beautiful waterfall. 27 June 2016 - 15:12:00

    I brought a group of co-workers into this magical home in the redwoods and it was sure magical. We went for hikes, practiced yoga and had everything we needed in this home. I would highly recommend this location and home for family getaways, retreats and even a personal journey where you'd want the magic of the redwood trees and a grounding home. thank you to the owners for such a lovely space. 23 July 2016 - 16:34:00

    This home is a winner. Clean, incredibly stocked kitchen, natural light, cozy corners, and plenty of grounds to explore. The shower in the master bath is a "must see" and I could listen to the sound of the creek running all day. We all agreed a weekend was way too short. Our next visit will definitely be much longer. Alisa is a gracious and considerate host. She gave us our space but was attentive to all our questions. I give both home and host an A+++++. Thank so much for the great time!

    The house was wonderful and the location was amazing. We loved listening to the creek on the property and walking into town and to the amazing trails. We felt like we were staying in the middle of the park. The owners were wonderful to work with and the house was well stocked with everything you could need. We loved it and will definitely recommend it and stay there again. 07 April 2016 - 21:01:00

    This house is beautiful, comfortable, in a gorgeous setting, and close enough to walk to town. It has everything you need and the owner, Alisa, is very organized, helpful, and attentive. Unfortunately for us the weather was extremely hot, which is unusual for Mill Valley. The house does not have air conditioning, and there are no screens on the windows. We felt uncomfortable opening the windows at night when it cooled off, lest we attract insects. Most chances this heat will not come back soon, so the house should be perfect. 10 September 2017 - 22:04:00

    We loved our stay in this house. The location is incredible - set amongst the redwoods. We felt completely relaxed here. The house is spacious and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Alisa was very kind and checked in to see how we were doing. We would love to return soon. It's a lovely home. 30 July 2017 - 14:39:00
  7. Marion C. this truly magical location in Mill Valley. A beautiful home surrounded by redwood trees and gardens that provided the backdrop for countless photos and the perfect venue for meals, reconnection and relaxation. There are easy walks to waterfalls and paths through towering trees. Our hosts were super responsive and checked in to make sure all was going well. We hope to return, our family loved this beautifully decorated home! 31 July 2017 - 16:25:00

    We stayed at this beautiful home last weekend and loved the beauty, comfort and warmth it provided for our women's gathering. All of the women could not stop talking about what an amazing venue it provided. Alisa's home is comfortable, beautiful inside and out- what the pictures can not truly convey- I was blown away when I arrived. The location is amazing- truly nestled in the redwoods and then walking distance to the charming Mill Valley downtown. I can not imagine a better experience all around. Alisa was wonderful to work with. Answered all my questions promptly and made sure we had everything we needed for the weekend stay. The home itself was beautiful, full warmth and peace. It had everything we needed to be comfortable. We will be back to stay for sure! 03 October 2017 - 17:27:00

    Wonderful home. Lots of amenities. The master bath alone is impressive. Property is gorgeous. Looks exactly like the photos with more to discover in person. 10/10 would stay again. 05 October 2017 - 15:39:00

    The site is in a redwood forest with properties close together, but private. Easy walk to town. Mill Valley has nice shops and goood markets. All within half an hour of Muir Woods and Sausalito.. great location.House is beautiful, well furnished, nicely decorated and amply supplies. 12 October 2017 - 18:06:00

    We had such an incredible time at Alisa & Brian's place. The house is big, spacious and beautiful, and the outdoor areas are so peaceful. Coming up from Los Angeles, this was such a treat - I only wish we would have stayed longer! A very short drive into mill valley's downtown area, and only a few minutes walk from beautiful trails, it's perfectly located. Alisa was so helpful and communicative throughout the whole process. Would definitely stay here again! 26 October 2017 - 16:18:00
  12. Our four night stay in this beautiful home was blissful and pampering. Tucked away in a gorgeous natural setting, every room offered a view of the majestic Redwoods. In the mornings we let out their two hens and ate breakfast watching them peck around in the dappled sunlight. One afternoon we spotted a graceful waterbird enjoying the stream running through their property. Our evenings became spa time in the steam bath and/or the jacuzzi after which we jumped into wonderfully comfortable beds. Alisa and Brian are very welcoming and helpful. They encouraged us to take advantage of their beautifully stocked kitchen to have dinner parties for family and friends, but with downtown Mill Valley a short and beautiful walk away, we ventured out instead. Finding wonderful coffee shops, restaurants, and a exquisitely stocked market/deli/wine shop. Beautifully located, beautifully decorated, and decked out with all the modern amenities, the home is extraordinary. But what surpasses all is it is obviously a home of a loving family and you feel it and enjoy it through out your stay. 02 January 2012 - 21:52:38

    Even though this house is a few minutes from San Francisco, it seems far removed. The setting (in a redwood forest,) the town (Mill Valley,) the openness and light and warmth of the house have to be experienced. We hosted a cookout for a girls soccer team and everybody was amazed at the house and its surroundings. We can't thank the owners enough for sharing their place. I played tennis in the local public club, enjoyed the cafes, and explored northern California with my wife and three teens. A whitewater rafting trip was the perfect ending for our vacation. 21 August 2012 - 14:46:30

    We had a wonderful family getaway at this home for the July 4th weekend of 2015. It's perfect for all ages because it has so many intriguing and relaxing things -- from the hot tub to hammock to place to meditate away from the house. The town is walking distance and is also cute and convenient for any groceries. The house itself is large and has more than one living room, as well as a big deck in back under the trees. What a great place! We really loved it! Mary 15 July 2015 - 21:42:49

    We arrived July 5, 2015 for a week with 3 generations of our family. Before we entered the house, we spent a long time enjoying the incredible beauty of the property. Our two 6-year old boys loved the rope swing over the creek and the hammocks, while the adults enjoyed the comfortable and roomy outdoor living space. The beauty and comfort of the property exceeded our high expectations. There was a large outdoor dining table where our family had dinner together several times. The house was spacious and a perfect fit for our family, with a lovely dining room and room for everyone to be together in the kitchen. Taking care of the three chickens (easy!) just added to the fun! The walk to town and the park was scenic, and we enjoyed hiking to the waterfall a couple of times. Four of our group hiked the Dipsea Trail from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach, while the rest of us drove and met them for lunch and a walk on the beach. Alisa was very prompt and responsive whenever we had any questions about the house, and the information that she left for us was well organized and very helpful. It was a special week that we will always remember! 20 July 2015 - 16:56:59

    We had a small women's retreat here in July of 2015. It was such a beautiful and peaceful location, with lots of nooks and crannies for time by yourself or hanging out with a group. The grounds as well as the house itself were all beautiful. We really loved all the spiritual art and warm colors in the rooms. The kitchen was full of everything we needed to cook some amazing meals. We enjoyed the hot tub under the redwoods at night. Feeding and interacting with the sweet chickens was nice, too. There were some hiking trails easily accessible on foot from the house, and we also walked to town once for a quick look around. I also liked that we were encouraged to recycle and compost--this demonstrates great respect for our ecosystem. Alisa was really accessible and helpful when I had questions or needed recommendations. Charming, peaceful, and special! I highly recommend it. 23 July 2015 - 17:22:33

    This property was the perfect home base for a weeklong retreat with our big East Coast family. The house is beautifully situated, tucked deep into the Muir Woods like a fairy tale. There were plenty of bedrooms to accommodate our large group. As a family that loves to cook and eat together, we enjoyed the big kitchen that was stocked with lots of pots and pans, as well as its open layout where we hung out and casually ate most of our meals. We also really loved using the grill outside along with the big table outside on the patio. It was great to be so close to townaccessible via an easy short walk or a 2 minute car rideand we loved taking advantage of the multiple gorgeous hikes up through the Redwoods. One other benefit was the proximity to the 2-person apartment across the street that was also rentable on VRBO (Property Listing #358748). My in-laws stayed there, and it was a great escape for them each night while still being close enough to allow them to be part of the festivities. Thanks for a fabulous stay in Mill Valley! 29 November 2015 - 20:53:06

    We loved our weekend in Mill Valley at this truly magical home in the woods. Everything was exactly as stated. It is an easy walk to town and 10 minutes up the road to the beautiful Cascade Falls and hiking. The lovely gardens and inviting hot tub made it even more special. Alisa was always quick to respond and very accommodating. We will definitely keep this place in mind for next year's GG reunion! 15 March 2016 - 21:35:03

    Our extended family had a wonderful stay. It was a great location for both wine country and San Francisco. I would highly recommend. 18 November 2017 - 16:16:00

    A very warm and inviting home, nestled in the redwoods. My family spent our Christmas vacation here. A perfect place for a cozy gathering. Thank you, Alisa! 26 December 2017 - 20:28:00
