  • Staying with Dianne felt like staying with a friend who just happened to live in a very special place! On the way there, the cab driver was regaling me with stories of the "old Sausalito" during the 1960s when it was an artist's colony. Then when he dropped me off out front, he looked up at Dianne's "chalet" and said: "Like that!" And indeed, it does have a really artsy feel. Also GREAT view and the very best shower ever! The shower alone is worth booking here!

  • What a beautiful house and a gracious hostess! Dianne was warm and inviting and even had coffee and granola for me in the morning.

  • Dianne's place is fantastic, like a small swiss chalet in a Mediterranean landscape, with beautiful view over the port and easy access to the beach. The house itself is cosy and nicely decorated, and Dianne shared a lot of good advice and made us nice breakfast! Definitely would go back there.

  • This is a charming place to stay and your hostess along with the view are "charming."
    the location is perfect for a trip to Muir Woods or Stinson Beach. Or you can hop on the ferry to San Francisco.
    My wife and I enjoyed our three night stay.

  • There is no hostess more gracious and accomodating than Dianne. Her home is lovely and well-appointed and comfy. The front and side decks have the most magnificent views of Richardson Bay and the surrounding hills. The trail behind the house into the redwoods is a lovely respite that comes with your nightly stay. I was in this lovely home for 8 nights, and slept like a baby every night. And the giant shower is to die. After the first day, I felt like Dianne could be a friend, and consequently - though we first met as strangers - I feel I have made a great friend (who happens to have a marvelous house!)

    Any negative comments are doubtless from people who are expecting absolute perfection from top to bottom, and this is a very historic home with private rooms and a large shared bath. It is not the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay, and thank heavens for that.

    Dianne has a very intuitive nature regarding understanding one's privacy and engaging in conversation. It's a gift. I can not speak more highly of the accomodations and the hostess, and I highly recommend Dianne's home for your stay in Sausalito. You will not be disappointed.

  • We had a fun stay one night stay with Diane. Her house is quintessential casual Marin county (in my experience) and the location is terrific. She (email hidden)ly and interesting woman who loves sailing and captivated us with astonishing stories from this year's America's Cup which was going on while we were there. Next year we plan to have her give us a sailing lesson during our stay! And the nearby restaurant Trident was wonderful - great view of the bay and the city and the bridge - just lovely. The food was very good too. It was a short but sweet stay. Thank you, Diane!

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!
