This house is built on the site of the old water tower in Sausalito so the front garden is enclosed by a rock wall and being about 20 steps down from the car deck it is very secluded and private.
I had been living in China and bought this house when I decided to return to the San Francisco Bay Area. It was owned by an opera singer who lived in it from the time it was built. When I bought the house it was in disrepair but over the last two years I have renovated it and brought back the light and life that I know was once here.
Interaction with Guests
There is a housekeeper who will make sure everything is organized for you. I live there from time to time so we may or may not meet
Sausalito is a great mix of salty sailors, art galleries and up and coming restaurants. There are numerous places to eat on the water or along the locals street. And the city is a ferry ride of 15 min drive away.
I love the fact that although Sausalito sees it's fair share of tourists, it's twinned with Portofino, the locals still have a lot of influence with summer jazz in the park and music in local restaurants nightly.
I wouldn't live anywhere else in the Bay Area. It's magical.
There is a ferry service to SF as well as buses. They are both a walk away.
Other Things to Note
There will be wine, truffles and breakfast goodies for you upon your arrival.
Please be mindful as there may be guests below you. Please remove your shoes and refrain from loud noise and music after 10pm.
Also this is a non smoking house.
Lastly it is per friendly. Mocha, the min pin mix, sometimes lives here when he is not hiking or at the beach.
The host canceled this reservation 25 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We LOVED our stay at Tanyias beautiful home. It's located in a beautiful green area overlooking San Francisco bay. The view from the bedroom window made me smile every morning. The house was very clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The bed was incredibly comfortable. You are 20min walk from the ferry terminal so it is easy to catch a ferry to San Fran Pier. Sausalito itself is very pretty, wish we had more time to explore it further. Tanyia was very helpful and accommodating. I can't recommend this place enough. You won't want to leave!
Tanyia's place has been great for us to relocate to the Bay Area. Please consider our review if you are considering a long term rental. Our overall experience has been mostly good and whenever there have been any issues, such as the internet not working (and needing a fix from ATT) - Tanyia was accommodating and responsive. Any concerns we have had were addressed quickly.
The house overall is very comfortable and well equipped for a short or long term stay. Bed and sheets super comfy, beautiful view of the bay and a great location - only 10 minutes to be over the bridge and into the city.
We'd stay again and recommend it to anyone.
We arrived to find a nice bottle of wine from our hostess waiting for us on the counter. The space was bright and airy with many comfortable places to sit and relax. This home sits on a hillside in a nice neighborhood with a beautiful view of the trees in the valley. From the deck and the bedroom window, you can see the bay. The bed was big and comfortable and we spent a couple lazy mornings watching the birds flitting around the giant tree outside the bedroom window. Everything we needed to know was outlined in the manual our hostess left for us. We enjoyed our stay very much.
We had a lovely stay in Sausalito at Tanyia's. The house is very cozy and warm and has amazing views of the valley and the bay. The beds are comfortable and the house is super quiet! A great place to get away for a weekend.
Tanyia's home is a very special place to enjoy all that the San Francisco and the area have to offer. Upon arrival I enjoyed the three fresh flower arrangements that added color to the stylish, beautiful interior of her home. A note encouraged me to enjoy the fresh fruit and cheese in the refrigerator. The kitchen is perfect with great Bosch appliances. Day and night you can enjoy a view of the bay from inside or out on the deck. The house and Sausalito offer easy access to the city by a 25 minute ferry ride or 30 minute drive. The location provides easy access to highway 101 which takes you to the wine country and beyond. Easy access to highway 1 takes you to Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Bodega Bay and up the coast. Within a 15 minute drive you can access the Marin Headlands leading to Rodeo Beach and an incredible hike along the coastal trail, returning on a road that provides spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge. This is a small intimate house that provided the perfect location for me to enjoy my visit to Sausalito, San Francisco,
coastal California and the wine country.

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.
