The true Mill Valley experience, this garden hideaway is an in-law studio overlooking the garden of a historic Mill Valley home in a tranquil neighbourhood. We are a 10 minute walk to the downtown square, five minutes to restaurants and Whole Foods, with close access to public bus to SF. Also a great location for hiking and biking out the door. We are a local family, and have many recommendations to share if you need them.

This is truly a hideaway as described, very private and comfortable. Bonnie was great with communicating and making our stay memorable. Highly recommended if someone wants to stay outside of San Francisco.

Bonnie's garden hideaway was absolutely perfect! Very quiet and private yet close enough to town for an easy walk home after dinner. The apartment was extremely clean uncluttered and comfortable. Everything seemed new and fresh. The bed linens and towels were all top quality. The added touch of the organic milk and wine in the refrigerator along with some cereal, cookies, coffee, tea, shampoo, conditioner and other toiletries was much appreciated. The hot tub out on the deck was perfect after a long days hike! I would definitely recommend staying here!!

Awesome place. Very clean. 1 regular bed, with option for an additional air mattress. Vaulted ceilings make the room seem very spacious. Bathroom is excellent with a rain shower. There's no cable but an appletv, if you care about

Bonnie's garden hideaway is exceptional in every way. The guest house is a detached structure from their lovely home that truly does sit within a quaint and immaculate garden. The pictures do not do it justice. The room is exceptionally large with a dining area, sitting area with a TV and a kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, cereal, cookies and a mini fridge stocked with organic milk, orange juice, and wine. Included was a full bathroom with toiletries and a closet with iron and ironing board. The entry was through the driveway which felt very private with motion lights for evening arrivals and a very large hot tub on the deck with appropriate towels and glassware provided. Every need was anticipated and every detail was done with care. The room, yard and deck were exceptionally clean and the memory foam bed made for very restful night. I can't stress enough how at home we felt during our stay. The location was just as great as the accommodations. Around the corner was the oddly generically named Mill Valley Cafe that had the most perfectly cooked bacon and eggs of my entire life. If Phil is running the grill you simply can't go wrong. A block further is a Whole Foods among many other excellent restaurants whose service really blew us away. We could have stayed within blocks of the hideaway and would have counted this among our favorite vacations. If you are willing to drive a bit further away there are many outdoor parks and trails that are just stunning (Bonnie has included many great area guides within the room as well). The Matt Davis trail down to Stinton beach was exceptional. Bonnie and her husband Bob struck a perfect balance of being available and communicative about the area while allowing us privacy to enjoy our stay as we wished. Our only regret was that our schedules did not align to meet in person. As I write this review in San Fransisco proper, I can't stop thinking about our next chance to come back and stay in Bob and Bonnie's garden.

Bonnie's place is awesome, private, quiet and so close to everything in Mill Valley ... The tree lined street where the house is situated is gorgeous and a pleasure to walk to charming Mill Valley ... The studio is very large, spotlessly clean & the bed is very comfortable ... Bonnie is a fabulous host and I would love to stay there again anytime ... Thank you!

Bob and I have lived and brought up our daughters in this home for 37years. We now have the joy of frequent visits from our daughters and their husbands and our 3 grandsons.
We have enjoyed traveling extensively over the years and in more recent times have found our experience enriched by staying with local hosts.
Where ever we travel, we are always content to call Mill Valley our home.
