This is a fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly beautiful house. My son, a professional chef, was getting married and we rented this property for several days so that he and I could prep a 7-course meal for the eve of his wedding (in a different location), and to house some of our friends/chosen-family who were driving to the bay area from a distance. We were delighted to find the kitchen very well equipped, with serious appliances, granite counters with lots of work space, and a deep, ultra-utilitarian sink. I am an artisan baker and was happy to find the gas stove worked well for my breads. When we are choosing vacation houses to rent, we always check out the kitchen first, and this one did not disappoint. In addition to providing the equipment we needed, it was a very pleasant space to work in.

The pictures truly do not do the house justice--the upstairs master bedroom, where we awoke to a stunning view of the bay, was magnificent. The downstairs was open & airy and light-filled. There was both a formal dining area and a large square table (that comfortably sat 8 in an excellent configuration) off the kitchen area. The deck was lovely, although it was a little too cold for us to do much there (except run out to the hot tub and back) at the particular time we were there. It is in a fine location, has a decent stereo system, several fireplaces, lots of towels--the details that can matter.

We encountered one technical problem that could have been a disaster--the water heater stopped working--but Stacey immediately did what had to be done (replaced it!). She was helpful and accommodating, but not intrusive. All in all, we were delighted with our stay and would happily return.

Great house in beautiful Tiburon

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here, brought the extended family for 2017 thanksgiving weekend. House is well stocked with a big dining table that seated all seven of us comfortably. Mike and Stacy are wonderful hosts. We were able to visit Napa, Berkeley and San Francisco from this location. Hope to return again!

Lovely large house, beautiful views, great outdoor deck

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a few friends the night before my wedding. We had a fabulous time. It's up a winding road about 10 mins from Tiburon town. Everything was in great condition and we had a fabulous stay! Highly recommended

This is an extraordinary home with marvelous water views.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 3 children thoroughly enjoyed this home. It was easy to find with Mike's great directions. We walked part of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Sausalito side just before sunset. Muir Woods is close by - remember to get there early if you want to find parking. Fisherman's Wharf was another easy day trip and the finale was a Giants baseball game. We spent the first evening just relaxing in the hot tub. We highly recommend this property. Mike is an outstanding host.

Great place for a family stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Our family stayed in this wonderful house for two nights. There was more than enough room for all 10 of us! Lots of seating for meals and hanging out and talking. We spent most of our time out on the expansive wraparound deck! The weather was beautiful and we were able to eat a couple meals outside. The kitchen was large and updated with a nice big Island. Everything you need is there! The young adult cousins in the group particularly enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings! The master bedroom had the most spectacular view of the water. Beds were comfortable as well. Mike was extremely easy to work with and accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great for large family

  • 4 of 5

My family of four, my sisters family and my parents gathered together at this house to celebrate my brother in laws birthday. It's a great space for a large family. There are separate gathering areas, including an outdoor deck with fantastic views of the bay, which allowed us to spread out and never feel crowded. We loved this location!!! It was perfect for our daily trips to Stinson beach, Muir Woods, SF, Berkeley, etc. And a big thank you to the owner Mike for noticing the clothing items we left behind! He was very quick to let me know what we left behind and did not hesitate to put them in the mail back to us. Great customer service!!
