About This Listing
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.

- bike to Tiburon and have lunch on the harbour at Sams

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!
The apartment will be professionally cleaned for your arrival after 3pm.
Check out is 11am.
There is a welcome manual with all the information that you need upon arrival.
This is a wonderful, cozy and beautifully appointed appartment perched on a hillside in Sausalito. Everything is new and very tastefully done. It is like living in a plush birds nest high in the trees. Tanyia has thought of every detail. I was only here for 2 night but I could have stayed for 2 weeks very easily. The bed is extremely comfortable. There is a excellent small library in the bedroom. Storage is handled very cleverly and as a result there is no clutter anywhere. Tanyia provided a bottle of wine and breakfast for the first morning, both of which were greatly appreciated. This would be a perfect place for a couple. There is a large couch in the living room that would easily sleep 2 kids as well. I have only the most positive things to say about this place and I would highly recommend it. In fact, I hope to come back.
I should add that Saucilito is the perfect base for exploring San Francisco and the Headlands north of the city. You can take a ferry from the Sauciloto dock and be in San Francisco 15 minutes later. Parking is very expensive in the city so commuting from Saucilito is a great alternative to staying in the city. Tanyia's place is only a short drive to some of the lovliest hiking on the California coast, with sweeping views to the sea. The Muir Woods are also only a 15 mintute drive way.
Bottom line -- I loved it.
Such a cozy place to stay. Bed was very comfortable and nice to have the extra space in the living room. Taniya responded right away. Very easy to book.
We had a great weekend in the house in the trees! Very quiet and cozy. The unit was accurately described...just in case you don't pick up on this in the listing description...LOTS OF STAIRS. Not a problem for us, but I did wish I had packed a tad less as I lugged my suitcase down two flights of fairly steep stairs...and back up when we left ;) We walked into town for breakfast one morning (good 15-20 min) and took a different way back (different staircases in the neighborhood rather than the steep hill we had walked down). GREAT exercise, but more for a breakfast or lunch adventure....not something I would advise doing for dinner and then walking back in the dark (it's less than 5 min drive into town). The town of Sausalito is adorable, and its proximity to San Francisco, not to mention other fun places like Tiburon, Muir Beach makes it the perfect weekend getaway. Was our first Airbnb experience and I'm excited to return!
This retreat amongst the trees is a great place to stay and had the comfiest bed I've ever slept in!It was just what we needed after spending 3 weeks in hotel rooms. The retreat location is close to the main strip in Sausalito.
I would recommend hiring a car if you are wanting to see in and around San Francisco.
Tanyia was very responsive and a great host! It was a great experience for our first time using Airbnb
We greatly enjoyed our stay. Tanyia really goes great lengths to make this place a special one to visit--quiet, romantic, full of natural light, very clean, and the space full of personal touches to make it feel like home. The neighborhood is upscale and steeply situated on hills so that nearly everywhere you look gives you a beautiful view. Everything was as described. We would definitely visit again.

About the Host, Tanyia
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 Homeaway 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.
I look forward to meeting you.
