About this listing
Private, quiet, light, airy and open house nestled in a walled garden. Walk the steps to the waterfront and ferry. There have been 4 engagements in this house. It's a love shack!

- 1 King size bed with European pillow top mattress
- Living room
- 2nd bedroom full size platform bed
- aero bed for additional guest
- TV/Film projector
- Apple TV
- Wifi DSL included
- Utilities included
- Car deck parking for 1 car

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.
This lovely home in the Sausalito hills was exactly as pictured with an added bonus of views of SF Bay. Tanyia's welcome gifts of wine and truffles helped us feel at home. The neighborhood is upscale and quiet, the beds comfy and clean, the home charming and cozy. There was even room on the property to park our compact rental car. The loft bed in the second bedroom and the stairs to the home are not a good match for the motion-impaired but for everyone else this listing is highly recommended!
Tanyia was an accommodating host and her place is as beautiful and serene as the pictures indicate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I returned to Tanya's home for another great summer visit to Saualito. This is a beautifully designed environment from which to explore the Bay Area. A perfect location from which to enjoy hiking the coastal trails of the Marin Headlands, take a road trip to the wine country, Mendocino, a healthy walk into town and a ferry commute to the energy and amazing food of San Francisco... This is a very special...private... quiet retreat...I am looking forward to another visit to Tanya's Artists retreat....

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.

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.
