The apartment met all our expectations: peaceful, clean, nicely furnished, shady sitting area, close to Muir Woods and many hiking trails. Mill Valley has a small town, yet cosmopolitan feeling, with pleasant cafes and good shopping.
There were maps and guides available for us to browse and plan our stay.
Our time was too short to explore San Francisco, which we would like to do next time. It's just a short drive across the Golden Bridge.
