New, private & elegant studio w/ garden patio & hand carved fireplace. Centrally located- 10 min. to SF, Sausalito, Mill Valley & Muir Woods. 45 min. to Sonoma or Napa in Wine region. Be in the country for hiking trails & beaches, & have access to all the culture that SF Bay Area offers!

The space

Inside a 1909 Cedar Cottage home, this is a very unique and elegant studio unit with separate entrance. With a full kitchen, open a bottle of wine and prepare a full meal or a snack using the organic produce farmed locally at the best fully organic grocery store in Marin with a wonderful prepared foods for take out and picnicking. Unit has a hand carved fireplace, oriental rugs, rich linens and towels, and provides a restful retreat from your travels or work schedule.

Guest access

Private entrance with easy parking at street entrance. One flight of stone steps takes you up the garden & through the wrought iron arch to the stone patio with outdoor fireplace and you enter the warm, elegant studio with lots of windows, a full kitchen, fireplace, wood floors, a separate bathroom with tub/shower and lots of storage.

Interaction with guests

I have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Latin American and US and understand what is to be away from home: you want a safe, quiet haven to rest between all the exciting, new experiences! Ask me any questions of the area, and I will be glad to offer my secret vistas above the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as Muir, Stinson and Bolinas Beaches. I know charming local restaurants, giving you a local feel of Marin County and the SF Bay Area's cultural and culinary stars.

Other things to note

The California Coast, San Francisco, and the quintessential Marin county towns (Mill Valley, San Anselmo, Fairfax) are all 10 minutes by car and also the Wine region of Sonoma and Napa is 40 minutes via car to explore!

This is a very quiet neighborhood and the unit is very clean and elegant. NO smoking, no drugs are allowed, but light drinking is fine. Clean and respectful conscious host, hope you will treat my studio as it was yours. May consider a small dog only.

Christina's gorgeous studio apt is even better than I expected; I felt as though I were staying with an Auntie, so homey & quiet, yet filled with art, in a "curator from the De Young museum's" home with a bathtub & the best bath products to enjoy a soak after a day on the trails or visiting family......... surrounded by beautiful gardens and 3 min from Hwy 101-absolute perfection!

This place is a jewel. Great for two people. It was such a find. Close to everything. We went to Muir Woods, Napa Valley, and San Francisco. So happy to have been able to get a reservation for this trip.

This was my first experience with Airbnb. I'll admit, I was nervous. But my fears and anxiety were completely dispelled as we drove up to Christina's place. The accommodations were just perfect for us. There was enough room for two, the kitchen was stocked with the necessities, coffee and a coffee pot :) and of course all the other necessities as well (toiletries, fresh linens, kitchen items, books, games, etc). The place was clean and very inviting. Then the courtyard/patio!! Perfect! I would stay here again and totally recommend it to anyone visiting in that area.

Stylish, Modern Accommodation Host Christina’s apartment is modern and clean. It has everything you could need. Christina is easily contactable and quick to respond to any requests. She is positive, professional and helpful. Attractive Mill Valley location with fantastic large Natural Foods store (better than Whole Foods) nearby, offering a huge selection of vegetarian, vegan and meat dishes either packaged, pre prepared or cook to order - and great coffee! Pleasant walk to Sausalito and ferry to San Francisco. Comfortable bed. Description is accurate. Highly recommended. We would definitely use again.

I was born and raised in Marin County and have hiked, biked & ridden horses on many of Marin's lovely trails. I can refer you to special vistas, restaurants and entertainment venues. I have traveled extensively, and know that where you rest, is key to how relaxed and energized…
