We come to Mill Valley every year, same time, to visit family. Usually, we stay at different places to explore, but this time we both agree that we might have just found the perfect place to stay each year. This place is DARLING and within walking distance to downtown. It got everything you need and it’s CLEAN and beautifully decorated. We loved it and plan on coming back. Kerstin & Jack
My husband and I recently had the good fortune of staying at this VRBO. As other reviewers have stated, you feel as if you are in a tree house surrounded by natural beauty. There are so many hiking paths close by. Mill Valley is a wonderful town to go to for shopping, dining, etc. And San Francisco is a 15 minute drive.
This studio-like vacation property was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at-- and at a great price! The description is very accurate, it was clean, very modern, and the owner answered all my questions very quickly and thoroughly. It has a lot of amenities: fridge, stove, utensils, cookware, wineglasses, coffee and coffeemaker, and very close to the town of Mill Valley for impromptu grocery visits or a nice dinner. I especially loved that it also has an outdoor sitting area to enjoy the surrounding growth/woodlife, which was very different from the Mid-West and I was very happy to be able to enjoy it in my pajamas :-). My brother and I stayed there for 5 nights for a wedding in the area, and although it only had one bed, the couch was so roomy and comfortable that we were able to switch off who got the bed without any fighting or sleepless nights. It was about 45 minutes from winecountry, so we were also able to make a day trip for some wine tasting, and only about 20 minutes from San Francisco where we did a ton of sight-seeing. Best vacation I have been on, and I would definitely recommend and would stay there again. A++++
We spent 10 days in this lovely location. The cottage was everything we hoped for. We were visiting the area to see family and had a wonderful time exploring by foot and car. Although it was October we never saw the famed SF fog! The owner was very helpful when we needed it. Looking out every window we saw the magnificent redwoods which made us feel as though we were in a tree house. We loved being able to walk to town with its shops and great restaurants. We also took the ferry to SanFrancisco one day, explored the Napa Valley another, and walked the trails. So much to enjoy outside. The cottage was perfectly furnished, clean and modern, restful and quiet. We would certainly recommend it highly and would love to return sometime.
This place is a 10 including the owner Kendra. The only downside was having to leave! I can't wait to go back! Thank you Kendra for such a pleasant stay. Angela
The Cascade Cottage is fantastic. It is quiet, clean, so comfortable and everything you could need was available in the apartment. It is beautifully decorated and you feel right at home as you walk in the door. My son and I stayed there while we were visiting family in the area and it was perfect for our holiday. We loved being in the redwoods and just moments away from so many Bay Area sights. We took the ferry to Angel Island one day for a picnic and play at the beach, another ferry to pier 39 for all the fun touristy places, went to the Oakland Zoo, down to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk and off to Sonoma County another day. It was such a wonderful peaceful homebase to have whilst visiting family and friends. We have already recommended it to other family members whom live outside of the bay area. Kendra thank you for your hospitality and care in making our trip relaxing in that everything with the cottage was so smoothly processed.
5 star plus review on this rental! The owner was so helpful, and the cottage is just stunning! Close walk to hiking trails, downtown, library, etc... We've stayed at several vrbo's before and this one is right at the top! You can't go wrong with this cottage, highly recommended!!!
Kendra's studio is stunning! Perfect for couples who are looking for a lux accomodation hidden in a redwood-covered hillside. Bring your special food and relax in front of the fireplace, with a view of trees, the serenity of the woods with the convenience of a beautiful short walk to Mill Valley. PERFECT!
Where to start with this place... Wow. Location is beautiful exactly as described. In mill valley, in a very quiet, residential area tucked away in the trees. Extremely safe neighbourhood. You get the occasional dog walker, runner or if your lucky deer!!
This place is an absolute gem, was initially reluctant to use a home away property as always doubtful of where you are, who the owners are etc the usual worries, but I can not recommend this place enough.
It is above Kendras garage, beautifully decorated, clean, classy and has absolutely everything you need. Everything! We even had the choice of around 5 different coffee machines. Kendra was so welcoming, washer dryer downstairs to use as you wish. Lots of books in the property for hiking etc (if your in to this or cycling this is a fantastic location!)
The property is around 15 mins from San Francisco but I am so glad we were just out of it. Nice to be near in the day, but lovely to drive home to a gorgeous quiet property. Kitchen is excellent and with a lovely whole foods market in the town ...what more do you need!!
This place is great value for money, for what you get and the standard of the property. You could not stay cheaper in san Fran for this quality.. you may get a motel .. which is basic, and quite frankly no where near as nice as this place!! I was just sad it ended so soon! I could happily sleep all day in this place it's so quiet you don't know when morning is!! :)
to sum up.. fab property, great location, safe and Kendra fantastic. Thank you so much!!
Everything about this property is 1st class and the location is even better. This is how you want to live in Mill Valley.. Fantastic.
The cottage has rooms on every side that open onto redwood trees. Its beautiful every way you look. The street is like a park and the walk into town is wonderful. Very private. The cottage is wonderfully furnished. A great kitchen with everything you need. No noise at all. We would recommend this to any couple that want a nice peaceful weekend.
Lovely cottage; like being in a tree house. We walked to town every day; dined at an Italian restaurant recommended by the owner and sat over coffee in the town square.
We loved Muir Woods: go early to avoid the crowds. We walked along the creek up the canyon from our cottage and climbed the Dipsea Stairs. A very nice getaway. We hope to come again and stay longer next time..
The cottage and Mill Valley are just incredible!! You are literally surrounded by huge redwoods and lush ferns...so quiet and peaceful. The cottage was perfect... very clean and welcoming and the owner struck the perfect balance between being there when we needed something and providing privacy. We were perfectly located about 20-25 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf, 15 min to Muir Woods less than 1 hour to Napa. Mill Valley is a lovely little community with beautiful homes and nice restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this cottage.
We spent a very relaxing week here among the redwoods easy walking distance to downtown Mill Valley. The bed was extremely comfortable, good sheets and pillows. The kitchen so well equipped that you have the choice of three coffee makers plus a coffee grinder!
Everything is new and high quality, including the towels.
This apartment has it all: great location in the redwoods, contemporary decor, comfortable furnishings, beautiful bathroom and kitchen, more than just basic supplies, and an owner who is very easy to work with. The previous reviews give more details but I wholeheartedly second their enthusiastic endorsements.
My husband, young daughter, and I stayed at Cascade Cottage on our recent vacation. We arrived at the cottage late and after a long day of driving and seeing Yosemite. We were very happy with what we found - a beautiful, welcoming cottage that was well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. There was no need to touch the thermostat - just opened the windows and let nature take care of the rest. The heated floor in the bathroom was great. The owner was easy to work with and very friendly. She made us feel at home. Mill Valley is a beautiful town and close to all the SF area attractions. We spent one day seeing nature and one day seeing the city - the ferry ride from Sausalito to SF was perfect (and recommended by the owner). We are looking forward to returning to Mill Valley in the future and would most definitely stay in the Cascade Cottage again.
My husband and I stayed the month of May in this wonderful accommodation. The previous reviews all are accurate regarding the many amenities offered here. We especially appreciated the location in the Redwoods with so many outstanding walking opportunitites nearby, as well as being only 20 minutes form the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. As another review stated, we also "hated to leave and hope to return".
My wife, grandchild and I really enjoyed our stay here. Very comfortable apartment. Must have been built recently as everything is up to date and in good working order. Beautiful scenic location on the outskirts of Mill Valley. The reviews above are all accurate as to the various details also.
Everything about this place is fabulous. It's like a 5-star hotel room, in a wondrous and peaceful location.
Distressed wood floors, leather couches, great kitchen (although I spent a lot of time in San Francisco so didn't use the kitchen much.) Heated floors in the bathroom.
The place is located on a quiet lane, near a creek and a short walk from a waterfall park. It's a short bike-ride into downtown Mill Valley, with interesting coffee shops and book stores. And, for me, it was a very short commute into San Francisco -- right over the Golden Gate bridge. But every night, I got to go back to a wonderful place to be, rather than a cramped hotel room at twice the price.
Kendra, the owner, was great. Will definitely try to come back here next time I visit the Bay Area.
