    What a wonderful house with incredible views from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom! All our family members that came by to see the house couldn't stop complimenting us on finding such great place! The home was very clean and simply decorated - not too much clutter and it was well-equipped with everything you would need. The neighborhood was very quiet and lovely for strolling, but be prepared for hills! We were so close to everything - Sausalito, Tiburon, and our family in San Francisco was just 8 miles away :) Next time, we'll bring our bikes so we can go on the nearby bike trail that goes from Tiburon to downtown S.F. Looking forward to staying here again and seeing the sunrise! 02 December 2013 - 17:31:12

    I stayed at this beautiful house for my northern California visit with my family. The house was beautifully furnished and felt so comfortable. We so appreciated the detailed efforts of the homeowner (like the wine, toiletries, firewood equipment, etc.) to make our stay incredibly comfortable. The fireplace was easy to set up, and nice to cozy up to during the cold winter; but perhaps our favorite part was the view of San Francisco from the balcony! 13 January 2014 - 16:55:52

    My family and i enjoyed two weeks in this beautiful, well-maintained Mill Valley home. My wife still talks about the gorgeous views! we would have stayed longer had another renter not reserved the three weeks after our stay. The house was stocked with every amenity we could need and my wife particularly enjoyed the Wolf Range in the kitchen. The beds were comfortable and restful. i would highly recommend this house for any stay. 13 June 2014 - 01:18:14

    We wanted a property over Thanksgiving to be near our son who works in San Francisco. We couldn't be more pleased. Overall, everything was enriched by the stunning view from all parts of the house. Ruby left flowers, checked on us and the house was clean and well stocked. We were minutes from San Francisco, Mt. Tam hiking, Stinson Beach surfing, Pt. Reyes oysters and wine, and Mill Valley restaurants. Maybe best of all, thanks to the Whole Foods 1.5 miles away, we hosted a Thanksgiving lunch with our son and 5 contemporaries. They stayed until dark, finishing with pictures on the deck to capture the magnificent view in the background. So, thank you Ruby! 30 November 2014 - 14:30:41

    Our family rented this home for spring break in the San Francisco area. The location is perfect, 5 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, 15 minutes from downtown SF, 10 minutes to the Red Woods and the Mt Tamalpais views and hiking, the beautiful coastline and 45 minutes to Sonoma. We had no idea how much there was to explore in this area. The hills around the Golden Gate Bridge had spectacular views. We even found a rescue hospital for Sea Lions in the Mill Valley area. This was a great place to visit for our kids to see all the volunteers helping to nurse them back to health. Ruby was a great host. Her communication throughout the process was great. She was having some doors replaced in the home on the day we arrived and kept us updated on the progress to make sure we could get into the house on time as planned. She left us a welcoming note and a bottle of champagne. She even called to check in with us to make sure we got in OK and everything was good. Very nice. The house worked great for our family of 5 so we could spread out and have a relaxing vacation. There are running trails near the home with beautiful views. The best part was drinking a cup of coffee in the morning reading a book on the deck watching the sun come up over the mountains. The view out the front windows of the home was exactly as the pictures show. We even had a full moon one night and the reflection of the moon on the water was amazing (just like the picture on the website). The view is worth it. The last nice touch was the wireless printer in the 3rd bedroom. I wanted to print boarding passes for our flight home but did not have a computer. I found I could print my boarding passes from the email on my phone to this wireless printer. Extremely convenient. The only improvement (and not a complaint, just a way to improve) would be to make sure the front windows are nice and clean for each guest to thoroughly enjoy the view. Thank you Ruby for sharing your home with our family. Marc 14 April 2015 - 12:17:10

    This house has every amenity, was clean and comfortable and has sunny, expansive views of Richardson Bay. Ruby was an attentive, caring host and always immediately available to answer any questions or concerns. We highly recommend this property and hope to return next year. 16 April 2015 - 21:17:29

    Stayed with my husband and daughter. House was clean and neat, and very comfortable. We weren't at the house much of the time because we were out exploring, but the neighborhood was great for morning runs and the view was beautiful 01 May 2015 - 16:33:39

    We were in Mill Valley for a family wedding.decided to stay a week. This home does require a vehicle. Just a short drive to Sausalito ferry ,which gives you a twenty minute ride to San Fransisco . All you need is food! Bright and clean home. Ruby was very caring and available host. 01 June 2015 - 19:44:30

    We were in Mill valley for a family wedding. This house was clean and bright. We had a comfortable stay. Mother Doe with her twin fawns greeted us in the backyard each morning. I would recommend this to my friends. 03 June 2015 - 17:45:37

    We lived here for a month last winter and the house was perfect. Phenomenal view, lots of space, well appointed kitchen, and the house was very clean when we arrived. Ruby also went out of his way on multiple occasions after we left to re-connect us with little things that we'd forgotten / left behind. We'd definitely stay again if we didn't just move to Mill Valley! 23 July 2015 - 20:49:57

    Found this place when looking for a house to rent for a week as part of a three week trip to the west coast of the U.S. Arrived to a very clean, tidy and well equipped house with the best view from the lounge/balcony you could wish for. Looking out towards to bay/estuary was a delight regardless of the time of day. Everything in the house was of a good quality and well maintained. Plenty of room in the driveway for two cars, but you do need to be a confident driver to reverse in - it's a tad steep! With decks front and rear, making the most of the available sunlight was easy, and a warm evening prompted a BBQ :) Mill Valley is a nice little town just over the Golden Gate Bridge, with good shops and restaurants and a nice retreat after a busy day sightseeing in San Francisco - just be aware traffic out of SF over the bridge can be very heavy depending on the time of day. Easy access to Muir Woods and some lovely beaches make for a varied vacation. Really enjoyed our stay in Ruby's house and if we come back to SF in the future we know where we will be staying! 07 August 2015 - 04:24:02

    We stayed twice at this house, once during the summer 2014 and then in 2015, whilst relocating permanently to Mill Valley with our 3 children (2 teens and 1 toddler). The house is very well located, with a lovely view, and in a perfectly clean/great shape. Ruby was very helpful, and made our stay very confortable. I would recommend this house and the owner without any questions! 26 March 2016 - 16:58:36

    We really enjoyed our stay at Ruby's beautiful home overlooking Richardson's Bay in Mill Valley. Minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, and a short drive to our favorite Muir Beach near Muir Woods. The home has wonderful views from the kitchen and living room and three very comfortable bedrooms. A well equipped kitchen too for gourmet meal prep ! Hope to be back soon, Angus R 20 April 2016 - 23:14:31

    From the start, Ruby was really great to communicate with and have been upfront of what we should expect from her home during our stay. We enjoyed our stay very much not only because of the magnificent views, really clean house, quiet neighborhood, personalized service from Ruby but most importantly because the house had everything we needed as travelers. We were welcome to use everything from the spices and condiments, pasta in case of emergencies, soaps, shampoos, moisturizer and everything else you can find in a house. Its like borrowing my mom's house with all her stuff available for our use. This was really convenient especially for the small stuff that we don't really need everyday. There were also guides to the area and Ruby was quick to recommend places to visit as well. I wouldn't think twice to stay here again in the future. 27 April 2016 - 11:10:40

    My colleagues and I had a great time at Ruby's house. Very clean, great amenities and fantastic view/location. Ruby was very communicative and willing to help if needed. We will be staying here again in the future! 09 November 2017 - 19:34:00

    Firstly the view was amazing just as in the photo's. Very comfortable, clean, delightful home from home. Ideal for San Francisco and Mill Valley. Will definitely be going back soon! 12 December 2017 - 23:09:00

    Clean, great appliances and a view that you will never tire of seeing. Ruby was kind enough to leave a special gift for us upon arrival. The kitchen is gourmet, fully stocked and easy to cook in. With large windows running from the kitchen to living room I felt like I was outside! Master suite is downstairs with the other 2 bedrooms on main floor. All are a good size. I would recommend this home if you are interested in Muir Woods, heading to SF or wine country. We enjoyed traveling over the Golden Gate Bridge but did avoid the high traffic times. There are a few things that Ruby will be fixing (kitchen faucet, upstairs bathroom faucet pop up) as she is very interested in keeping the home in good shape. Neither of these small issues resulted in a serious problem for us, just more of a nuisance. I will mention that Ruby gives instructions on backing down into the steep descending driveway. HEED her instructions. If you cant stomach backing down (we had an SUV with hill assist) I would find parking on the street out front. 01 January 2018 - 23:10:00
  19. We had an amazing time at your lovely home. It was our annual girls weekend and your house was perfect. There was plenty of rome for the four of us and we were all very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the view is amazing. Thank you for sharing your house. 16 January 2018 - 15:56:00

    Ruby's home was perfect for a gathering of my adult children and myself. The home was clean, comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. Great hikes and restaraunts were close. The view spectacular. The driveway was a challenge for sure. A great place for our gathering. 28 January 2018 - 01:30:00
