"We love our little cottage away from the rest of the world. The sound of the ocean and the beautiful scenery and warm cozy atmosphere is perfect. This is our second stay and we can't imagine staying anywhere else. Sue is the perfect hostess!"

"This was our family's first trip to the Bay area. My wife and I and our 3 grown children had a great stay. As other reviewers have mentioned, the view from deck, living room and master bedroom are outstanding. The house had everything we needed. For most of our trip we left the car in the driveway. It is about a 15 to 20 minute walk into downtown Tiburon where you can catch a short ferry to San Francisco or Angel Island. You can also park downtown if you want to save your energy for exploring other areas. Bike rentals are readily available and many people take their bikes on the ferry to both locations. The area is very bike friendly. It is also a relatively short drive to the Napa or Sonoma Valleys and Sausalito is only 15 minutes away. Tiburon itself is not nearly as big or busy as Sausalito but it has a very nice selection of shops and restaurants. We had meals there several times and were never disappointed. There is plenty of information on area attractions and points of interest in 3 binders in the house. After a busy day, it was great to come back to the house and relax while the sun set in the evenings with the cool breeze and fantastic view on the deck. Meredith, the owner, was very helpful. I had several questions before arriving and she was prompt and thorough with all her responses. We would love to come back to the area and Bella Vista will be our first choice when we start looking for available houses."

Something for everyone in this beautiful scenic home
"Great way to end our California vacation. We spent a week visiting family and then drove up the coast to San Francisco and ended up in this beautiful home in Tiburon. We did not want to stay in the city but wanted to be close enough that we could get in and out easily. It was a 10 minute drive to the ferry and a 20 minute ferry ride to the city. We were 6 people ranging in ages from 12-76 so obviously we had all different requirements. This ended up being the perfect house for us. When we weren't busy sightseeing, we were relaxing and enjoying the house. The kids were entertained by the ping pong table and hammock chairs, but unfortunately didn't have time to go in the hot tub. My husband and my father were entertained by the Apple TV, and my mom and I sat outside and enjoyed the view. The beds were comfortable and everything in the home was high end. The nice thing was that the homeowners lived there full time so the house was fully stocked and we wanted for nothing. Shannon was very helpful and quick to answer any questions even from another country! Although a little pricey, I would highly recommend this house."

"John and Deb's home is a sight to behold and an experience my family and I will never forget! We were blessed to be able to spend 10 days here in August. The house is incredibly well designed, well appointed and was a lot of fun for us and the guests we invited over to enjoy the view, kayaks, pool, hot tub and amazing BBQ area. I couldn't resist the urge and so also rented a boat from boatbound.co that we were able to keep at the dock and use for cruising the bay, going to restaurants, over to San Francisco etc. John and Deb couldn't have been more welcoming, helpful or accommodating. I'd highly recommend this place for any group looking for a supreme luxury experience you won't forget."
