Sausalito is wonderful as Leilas home.
We did not met Leila or Angela, only Clyde the cat :-)
We felt very confortable and would absolutely recommend this home.
Parking the car on the street is no broblem, Sausalito is cute and wonderful. Leilas home has charm and you will feel welcome and good.
We are happy we could stay there.
We had a great stay "with" Leila, although she was away that evening. It was a last minute idea to stay in Sausalito before going into SF for Bay to Breaker run! Angela made sure that our key was there and anything we needed, and Clyde the cat came by the evening to make us feel at home! Great location, walked downtown (approx. 1 mi) for happy hour and then dinner. Great place, highly recommend. This was our first time using airbnb. Thank you Leila and Angela.
This was my first experience with airbnb, and it was a really wonderful one! Leila was away the entirety of our stay, but her friend Angela made us feel very welcomed, and was available via phone/text for any and all questions. The bed, bathroom, sheets, and pretty much the entire house were very clean when we arrived. The area feels very safe, and street parking is readily available. Depending on how fast you drive, the Golden Gate bridge is about 10 minutes away. Clyde the kitty only came around once during our 5-day stay, but he was so friendly. If you like cats, you'll love Clyde, and if you don't like cats, he may very well convert you. We were also lucky enough to see a trio of deer early one morning in the garden. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. If you're deciding between a hotel in SF or Leila's place, I would definitely recommend staying with her!
I did not get to meet Leila but she we had great communication advance, all was as described. The room has a big opening window onto a stepped garden in development, waifs of fragrances and the sound of rain (yeah) lulled me to sleep. The cat is very friendly and a great welcoming spirit. It is a short walk to the waterfront, down a block, across the road, down the stairs to the buildings along the water. It is about 3/4 to 1 mile either north or south to most restaurants etc but a nice walk.
About the Host, Leila
I love to travel, spend time in nature, do yoga and garden. I enjoy the Airbnb experience as I get to meet lots of lovely people from all over the world! I live with my sweet cat, Clyde and puppy Tate. I am blessed to have many amazing friends and a loving family.
As a host I provide a very clean and cosy room and bathroom. I put out some healthy snacks, toiletries in case a guest has forgotten something and give you lots of privacy and space.
My favorite travel destinations so far are Alaska, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco and Italy. I hope to do a lot more traveling in the future!
