Dianne was an amazing host. She was present in whatever way you, as the guest, needed her to be. She made amazing recommendations for things to try and do in the area. My friend and I decided after the first rec she made that we would do whatever Dianne suggested because she was spot on with quality! In her own home, Dianne never made you feel as if you were imposing. She was present in the mornings (often with coffee) and evenings most times; and engaged in great conversation. It was sad for us to leave as we felt connected to Dianne! I would highly suggest this AirBnB listing for your travels. You just can't go wrong with Dianne, her home (which has amazing views and is located perfectly....we walked to downtown Sausalito every morning without a problem), and Sausalito itself! Big thanks to Dianne for helping make our trip so amazing!

We stayed in Dianne's house in early October 2015. The house is just up the hill from the center of Sausalito, in a pretty and quiet neighborhood. We loved the house. It has a lot of character, especially the kitchen and the bathroom. There is a patio with with a wonderful view of the bay. Dianne made a check-in and check-out very easy. Her friend was staying in the house at the time and she shared a ton of good info about the area with us. Overall, we had a great experience. It is a shame that big hotels are lobbying to outlaw such rentals in SF area. Our stay was definitely better/homier than in a hotel and much cheaper.

Dianne's cottage is a beautiful, charming place overlooking the bay that you feel immediately at home from the moment you walk in. She greeted me warmly and invited me to sit awhile in front of her lovely fireplace to sip a glass of wine to share wonderful insights about Sausalito. Such a welcoming feeling after traveling! Dianne is a gracious and amazing lady whose engaging personality makes you feel very comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, which was magical, and would highly recommend staying in her home. Kind Regards, Barbara

Dianne is a friendly and welcoming host. The house is very nice with beautiful views over the harbour in Sausalito and a lovely deck. The room I stayed in is very nice. I enjoyed having a sailing lesson with Diane who teaches well. You have use of the kitchen which is very useful. It is quite close to the town, at top of a steep hill if you are walking.

Dianne è stata una padrona di casa fantastica. Ci ha accolto come fossimo degli amici dandoci molti consigli preziosi per visitare Sausalito e San Francisco! La camera era molto carina e la terrazza con vista sulla baia è stata perfetta per la colazione!

Dianne ist sehr herzlich, sie hat mich aus freien Stücken mit dem Auto an der Fähre abgeholt. Sie weiss enorm viel über die Gegend und ihre Geschichten zu berichten und ist sehr offen für Fragen und Anliegen. Sie tut alles, damit man sich in der Gegend wohl fühlt und gibt interessante Ausflugsempfehlungen, die nicht im Reiseführer stehen. Sie stellt ihr Haus uneingeschränkt zur Verfügung. Sehr nahe Sausalito, der Beach und Sehenswürdigkeiten, alles gut zu Fuss und per Fahrrad zu erreichen Dianne konnte an meinem letzten Abend nicht zu Hause sein. Doch sie tauchte plötzlich an der Bushaltestelle für den Airport Bus auf, weil sie sich noch persönlich verabschieden wollte. Das war einfach grossartig! Danke Dianne!

Hi everyone! My name is Dianne and I love living in Sausalito. I enjoy everything about the outdoors; sailing, kayaking, rowing, hiking, gardening, biking, you name it. Also love playing dominoes and backgammon. As a native San Franciscan, I've enjoyed every moment of living here.
Traveling the world is my passion, with Italy at the top of the list. Lago di Como and Villa D'este have a special place in my heart! I love teaching women how to sail,(so they feel competent and confident) and now teach couples, families, corporate bonding on my sailboat. I have sailed the Caribbean, Hawaii, Greek Isles, San Francisco Bay, the South Pacific. I also take children out sailing who have cancer, and their families for simply a fun day, to enjoy, and get away from it all! I graduated from UC Berkeley, and have affiliations with Marin Rowing, University of Washington,( especially the crew team) and with the University of Oregon and USC.
Send me a message with any questions you have, and I look forward to hosting you at my Sausalito home. Ciao!
