House - Entire home/apt · Crescent Ave, Sausalito, CA 94965, United States

The Space

This is a separate apartment consisting of a queen size bedroom, kitchen/living room and private bathroom with a shower. This unit has a separate entrance so there is lots of privacy.

It is newly remodeled and has a queen bed with a new european pillow top mattress, flat screen tv, wifi, ipod dock. I leave your kitchen stocked with tea, coffee, milk and breakfast items to get you started. The kitchen is brand new and has a refrigerator and microwave. There is a wall of windows/french doors so there is lots of light.

I am installing a washer and dryer in this unit but in the meantime feel free to use the one on the upper unit.

There is (email hidden) bed and all the asosciated linens for an extra/third person.

There is street parking and no permits needed. There is often a spot directly opposite the car deck. If you are arriving very late at night let me know and I will give you my space on the deck and take a street spot.

Sausalito is really a fishing village and is twinned with Portofino, Italy - you get the picture. There are great restaurants 3 blocks away with..

- Cafe Divino - italian and live music
- Plate Shop - cocktails and american cuisine
- Sartaj - locals pit stop - amazing indian food
- Cibo - great coffee and breakfast
- Bocce - pizza and bocce ball on the waterfront
- Wellingtons - wine bar on the harbor

There is a quaint town with cute stores and lots of hike and bike rides. I have a whole list of attractions and rental outlets that I will leave for you in your room.

- take the ferry to the city
- paddle board around the bay
- hike mount tam
- bike to Tiburon and have lunch on the harbour at Sams
- walk to Mill Valley and lunch at The Depot in the village square

This house is unique in that it was built on the site of Sausalitos water tower so it is 22 steps down from street level and has a private walled garden.

Just so you know, I have a small 12lb dog called Mocha. He is curious and checks the property for raccoon damage each morning so you may see him. Careful he's a lover!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a charming and relaxing weekend at this hideaway in Sausalito. The unit is just as described - very private with a relaxing view up in the hills, a short and scenic walk down the hill to the shore. Very comfortable and romantic. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Very easy to get into the unit, and the owner kindly provides various snacks and amenities. Leave your cares behind ...

  • I had a terrific stay! The apartment was very clean and very welcoming. The setting up in the hills of Sausalito is just great. I really enjoyed walking through the beautiful neighborhood streets down into town. There are great restaurants and cafes within walking distance. And the kitchenette was nicely stocked with tasty snacks and breakfast items. Thanks for a great stay, Tanyia.

  • Tanyia's lower house was comfortable and peaceful at times, but by no means private. Like everyone else who has left reviews, the bed was very comfortable and yes the space is a work in progress. Likes: beautiful surroundings, close to town, and very clean. Dislikes: window latch was broken in bedroom so there was no way to close the only window, there were no curtains, and its not private. The privacy issue was terrible. The door you enter through is full glass with a thin pull down shade which means anyone coming to the door can see directly into the bedroom which happened on three different occasions within a 24 hour period. First was Tanyia on the second day we were there, she came to the door while we were trying to nap to tell us she was having a party that night. Now you must understand that she lives directly above the unit with hardwood floors that are very loud when anyone or anything moves up there. Needless to say we got to know the sound of high heels, boots, and the numerous dogs that were scampering about through the night. If that was not enough, after having retired to bed, a knock comes at the door, it was a woman offering us wine to make up for the disturbance. We politely told her to leave it at the door because we were sleeping. Upon waking the next day, while eating in the other room we heard the door open in the bedroom and went into find a man, who looked very inebriated, asking to use the bathroom.
    If there was no one using the house above it would have been more relaxing, and while Tanyia was pleasant and cordial, anyone staying here should be aware that it could be a very loud and social experience.

  • This place was so perfect for us. Wish we could of stayed longer. Thank you Tanyia!

  • This is one of two units nestled in the hillside above Sausalito. We stayed in the lower unit, which involves descending two staircases from street level. It is a completely separate, private unit with bedroom, bathroom, and living room with kitchenette. We loved staying there; it was a beautiful setting, easy to get to town, and much more cost effective than staying in the hotels in town. We felt like we were coming home to our hideaway at the end of the day.

    We didn't get a chance to meet Tanyia, who was out of town during our stay. We had a few minor issues with supplies when we arrived, but Tanyia responded promptly via text and had everything taken care of quickly and satisfactorily. We hope to get to meet her next time we stay in Sausalito, because we will definitely choose to stay here over any other alternative.

    We highly recommend this place to anyone looking to enhance their Sausalito stay.

  • We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was just like pictured in the photos. Tanyia was very responsive to communications during the stay and a great host. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchenette had what we needed to prepare quick breakfasts.

    February 2014
  • Staying in Tanyia's lower level apartment was a real treat. We were in Sausalito to enjoy the close proximity to outdoor activities in the area and went hiking around Mt. Tamalpais and Stinson Beach. The apartment is tucked away into the hills and is therefore very quiet, but it's also easy to get into downtown Sausalito by foot. The apartment itself was very good, light filled, quiet and clean and we would definitely stay there again. Tanyia was always helpful and quick to answer any kind of questions.

  • The place was very nice, close to town and the host was very friendly and helpful. The description of the place was accurate. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • This was our first Airbnb experience and we simply loved it. Tanyia (our host) was amazing. She was flexible with us and had all the amenities one could ask for.

    December 2013
  • Tanyia describes this location as a "work in progress," and we confirm. It is nice and extremely convenient to Sausalito, Mill Valley, and other amenities in the area. She still has some work to do, but overall it met our needs well. The stairs were fine with us, but they could be a challenge for anyone with physical limitation issues. We really appreciated that Tanyia was very responsive to try to be sure we were satisfied. We would recommend this site to able friends or family who wanted to stay in the area.

I am a global ethnographer so I am on the road a lot. It's my job to meet people from all walks of life. Recently I spent a year in China researching women across the country and so why not open my home up and meet people in my own back garden so to speak! This is my home and it has a second unit with a private entrance so you may never actually see me if that's more comforting! I have rented this home many times with (website hidden) where there are lots of great reviews. Please check this out if you would like to see the rest of the house to give you a better idea of your space. (website hidden) I look forward to meeting you. Best. Tanyia
