Leila, Tate the dog and her 15 yr old cat Clyde are fantastic hosts. You get a spotless room (what a bed!) and private bathroom in a wonderful environment. Ideally situated for hiking trips around Mt Tam, Point Reyes and Marin Headlands. Leila will provide you with everything you need like maps and specialised advice. Shops and restaurants are nearby for breakfast/lunch. Next to all this Leila is a person with the heart in right place. Will return when possible
This was our second stay with Leila, and it was again wonderful. We brought our baby girl with us and Leila was gracious and accommodating. She has an adorable puppy who was very gentle with our baby when we had them interact. Her home is quiet and peaceful, with thoughtful elements for guests. Despite having a cat and a dog, the space is clean and fresh. Our room and bathroom were impeccably clean (and I'm picky). We hope to return and stay with Leila in the future for a longer stay! Highly recommended for an enjoyable Sausalito/San Fran experience.
I'm so glad that I chose Leila's place to stay, and quite simply put, YOU WILL BE TOO!! :) When Leila opened her door to my dog and I, I truly felt as though she was not just offering a room for the evening, but rather she was welcoming us into her home, like family.
I chose to stay with Leila after reading a couple of her reviews, as it was quickly evident that, by not just having the typical feedback: "easy parking, clean bed, nice person", Leila's reviewers were leaving a conscious trail of breadcrumbs to be followed by the increasingly mindful travelers of today's fast paced world.
Reading reflections such as "went above and beyond as a host & could not be more accommodating", "mi casa es su casa", and my favorite "Do you ever feel like you have met a genuinely kind soul? This is Leila.", speak volumes.
Leila was extremely easy to deal with from start to finish. She was very responsive to my questions via email, flexible to my influx travel schedule, kindly offered a bit of a late arrival and was such a warm and gracious host with a beautiful smile.
She was attentive to my dog after our travels (dog owners know what I mean and we highly appreciate this), ensured we (he) had everything he needed to settle in. BTW - her pup was the sweetest!
Leila's place was very clean, parking was a breeze, the bed was large and VERY comfortable and the private bath offered everything one could need. To top everything off, Leila generously offers a selection of amenities (snacks/drinks/maps & local info), in the true spirit of kindness.
Thank you Leila! - BE well
Best part: Giant king sized bed(!) is such a luxury, it was great. Although we didn't meet in person, the hospitality was still surprisingly fantastic-- always responsive and even left some waters and snacks out for us that came very handy on our hiking trip the next day, which was just about a 30 minute drive from the house. We also found the restaurant recommendations handy and just a 5 minute drive down the road we found a few great places for dinner (at nighttime we didn't really find it walkable from the house), but beware if you are parking around Sausalito-- we got nailed with a $60 parking ticket for not seeing a sign-- whoops!
It was a short visit, but just what we needed :)
Great Location and very reasonable price! Leila was very welcoming; mi casa es su casa type thing. Would love to come back again!
Leila was a great host and even left out a few goodies for our journey. Bathroom was great and huge king bed with luxurious sheets were even better. Super quiet area for a great night of rest and only a half mile to great to the water and great restaurants.
Do you ever feel like you have met a genuinely kind soul? This is Leila. She was beyond accommodating, having taken my reservation very last minute, and was very helpful upon arrival. Even before I arrived, she was messaging me places to eat. I had severely sprained my ankle prior to arriving at her place, and she provided me with an ice pack, pain medication, arnica cream AND carried all my bags to my room. She went well above and beyond as a host. And as a plus, I got to snuggle with her adorable animals, who are quiet and very sweet!
It was easy to find. The room was spacious and comfortable. We had an unexpected guest, but he was friendly and easy to be with. (Clyde, the black cat.) Leila left some goodies on the kitchen table, an added delight especially after our New Year Eve's celebration.
Although I have hosted before on airbnb, this was my first experience as a guest and I was thoroughly impressed. Leila was quick to respond to our last minute query, even helped us plan the trip by giving suggestions of hikes to take in Sausalito neighborhood. On our arrival everything was ready for the stay including some wonderful snacks. The room is cozy with a king bed, overlooks a nice garden and the private bathroom is located right next door. We got to meet her lovely cat Clyde and that topped the whole experience. I would definitely stay here again, highly recommended!
Leila's place is quiet and simple - just exactly what I was looking for while I attended a week long seminar in Sausalito. It's about a 20-25 minute walk into town, and there's lots of parking available on the street if you have a car.
Leila was friendly and hospitable, making sure everything was ready for my stay, and leaving healthy snacks out for me on my arrival. I didn't see her again after check-in due to my long days, but her wise old cat and happy young dog sometimes were there to greet me.
The room was spacious and simple; basically a king size bed and a dresser, no TV, which suited me just fine. The bathroom is right next to the bedroom, and there was no problem at all with privacy.
I would recommend Leila to anyone needing a place to stay in Sausalito, and would go back there again myself.
