We are located a quick 10 minute drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. This historical vacation destination for escaping “city life” has become the chosen land. The journey across the Golden Gate Bridge (GGB) itself is memorable. The views of both the SF Bay and Pacific Ocean sides are lovely. And they are ever changing with the tides, winds, fog, sunshine & shadows of the iconic towers.

Per one of our guests:
“Cyndi was a great host and her house is the perfect situation if you are looking for access to Mill Valley's fantastic landscape, beaches, town, etc. Perfectly comfortable, well appointed, and an ideal house to rent if you have a few people in your group. Very much plan to rent again when I have to be in the area again.

Area Info
The house is nestled on the hillside facing the Marin Headlands, the views that you see from the decks. There are several trails you’ll enjoy exploring and can walk to right from the house. It is a very quiet safe community. A few minutes away are numerous restaurants, shopping for both essentials and boutiques items. The bike trail is nearby for a lovely stroll or ride along the bay inlets and wet lands.

From the house:
MUIR BEACH & TENNESSE VALLEY BEACH - Do walk/ hike out to the ridge for sunset or the more challenging TENNESSE VALLEY BEACH or MUIR BEACH. The trails have wonderful coastal views. Or drive to the coast for speed and ease. Muir Beach has the Pelican Inn which is a great stop for an English brew or meal, or just a game of darts. You can walk to the trailheads from the house.

In the area:
MILL VALLEY is a quaint town to explore with boutique shops and restaurants. Check out the music scene at Sweetwaters. I’ve personally seen Grace Slick, Rod Stewart, Huey Lewis there, as well as around town. Over its nearly 25-year history, the original Sweetwater hosted performances by artists including Bob Weir, Carlos Santana, Clarence Clemons, Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Huey Lewis, Jerry Garcia, Maria Muldaur, Sammy Hagar, Richie Havens and many other musical luminaries. In 1992, BBC Television shot a documentary at the club featuring Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker and Ry Cooder. That same year, Hot Tuna recorded two live albums at the Sweetwater. The new club intends to carry on this storied tradition. The BUCKEYE ROADHOUSE (steak and grill) has very good food and a fun ambiance In Downtown Mill Valley, D’ANGELO’S (Italian) is fun favorite of the locals. Or just wander. There are numerous restaurants and quaint boutique shops. It is cute town to explore.

SAUSALITO is a cute town on the Bay to explore with fabulous views looking back at the San Francisco waterfront, Angel Island, Alcatraz, Treasure Island and Bay Bridge. It has lots of souvenirs shops.

TIBURON also has delightful San Francisco Waterfront views with less of the touristy feel. You can catch the Tiburon Ferry to Angel Island or SF from there. Guaymus has a great happy hour on the water, same as Sam’s for breakfast on the deck. We hook up there after a day of sailing….

MARIN HEADLANDS has fabulous views looking back at SF as well as numerous WWII Army bunkers and missile silos to find and explore… a bit of history in our backyard. Walk out to the Point Bonitas Lighthouse for a true glimpse of the entrance to the Golden Gate. They used to have a one person at a time swinging bridge to access the lighthouse… my thrill, which has recently been replaced, my disappointment… but safer.

RODEO BEACH- is a close drive. Checkout the Marine Mammal Sanctuary and Recovery Center and the small museum, and store while there. There are some wonderful trails to hike taking you up into the hills with fabulous views, fun exploration of more Army barracks, gun installation sites, and great exercise with Mother Nature.

STINSON BEACH – another wonderful and favorite destination. Twenty minute drive along the beautiful, rugged California Coast. Couple miles of beaches to wander or run. The town has numerous eateries, wine bars to catch a bite or drink, plus small shops and galleries to explore before or after your beach escapade.

SAN FRANCISCO- via ferry or 10 min drive, city life is a few minutes away. Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, World class dining, diverse cultural neighborhoods, historic buildings and sights, the reknowned Fisherman’s Wharf and Waterfront Embarcadero Walkway, Ghiradelli Square, Alcatraz, Twin Peaks, Chinatown, Victorian Painted Ladies, shopping in Union Square, cheer on the Giants or 49er’s to victory, Lombard Street, Golden Gate Park, Cable Car rides, California Academy of Sciences, Modern Museum of Art, the new Exploratorium, Castro District… Check out the Farmer’s Market at the ferry Building (or the one at Marin’s Civic Center), Palace of the Legion of Honor, hike Land’s End Trail….
