The Mill Valley Bohemian Shangrila, Marin County, California

House, Private room - Mill Valley, United States

ID 201994


This is a share rental of a classic Mill Valley Home, known as the Bohemian Shangrila.

It is a well loved, great place that has been enjoyed by many famous people. It is on the sunny side of Mill Valley with ridgeline views to Sausalito & San Francisco. Features a Chef's gourmet kitchen stocked with a wide variety of spices, appliances & cooking implements.

It is located on walk path #69, 3 minutess from Bungalow 44 & a very short 3 block walk from downtown Mill Valley, restaurants, Mt. Tamalpais hiking/biking/running trails, yoga studios, grocery stores, etc. public tennis courts and a golf course are less than ~1/2 mile away, 3 blocks to the Golden Gate Transit bus/ferry which takes you into San Francisco, which is only ~10 miles away.

Fuschia, bouganvilla, impatiens, lobelia, mexican sage, passion flower, yellow trumpet flowers, & other interesting plants greet you as you enter the property. the vegetable garden has tomatoes, basil, cilantro, peppers, chives, swiss chard, kale, and a variety of lettuces.

The warm south facing front sun deck is beautifully refinished and has teak avignon deck chairs, patio heaters, gas & charcoal bbq's, including an Indonesian Mosaic tiled Kamado BBQ, hummingbird feeders, and a hammock. The large backyard has climbing roses, passion flowers, fresh herbs, 3 kinds of mint, lemon balm, veggies, bird feeders, and a super deluxe Coast Spas 80 jet, twin waterfall, am/fm/cd/dvd/tv AV system w/ 4 pop up speakers, fiber optic lit hot tub.

The living room is wood beamed with high a high ceiling and 2 large skylights. it has Wi-Fi, a Samsung Smart TV, Yamaha surround sound system, Dish Satellite TV and Comcast Cable systems, a wood burning fireplace insert, 2+ cords of wood and opens onto the front sundeck.

The big well equipped island kitchen has many high end kitchen appliances, side by side refrigerator w/ ice maker, trash compactor, lots of cabinets for storage. the kitchen/refrigerator/freezer is very well stocked w/ fresh veggies/fruit/cheeses/sea food/meats and all kinds of spices and supplies. if you don't want to shop, we can easily provide for you.

The Master bedroom, has a full wall of closet space, windows on 2 sides, and a very comfortable California King size bed. It is located in the back of the house, so it is quiet and great for sleeping in late. It is equipped with an Apple TV3 and Samsung Plasma screen TV. The bathroom is shared with the Front Garden bedroom. the bathroom has a heat lamp, shower/bath tub combination with excellent water pressure & a nice shower head. When i'm away on vacation, the whole house can be rented, which includes the front garden bedroom which offers morning sun & birds chirping.

There is a custom bike rack and washer & dryer in house. the kitchen is well stocked with most items a gourmet chef would require. As they do at Honor Bars in the Caribbean, feel free to use what you need & replace what you think is proper or leave some resupply funds in the wicker basket.

Note: The 'basic rental rate' for 1 person includes use of the Master Bedroom, house, hot tub, kitchen, shared bathroom, sundeck, and light breakfast-coffee or tea, toast, jam, and fresh fruit. The Master Bedroom's king size bed easily accommodates 2 people. If more than 2 people are in your group, i can comfortably accommodate them with a deluxe queen size air mattress with nice bedding in the living room or, weather permitting, on the front sundeck. i've endeavored to make this a reasonably priced shared house rental with all the amenities of home. On occasion, when i'm on vacation, the whole house, which includes the front garden bedroom, which i normally occupy, can be rented at a higher rate.

please note: that local lodging taxes of 12% must be paid in cash upon arrival. sorry for the inconvenience but apparently 9flats can not collect this for us.

The apartment is stated as ground floor, but is actually a very low ground flor level, verging on basement. There are plenty of windows though, so it is not dark. A larger dinning table would have been nice. Apart from that a fine apartment
