About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office & Sunroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Luxury 4br/3ba Tiburon house perched on a hill featuring commanding 180 degree turn-your-head panoramic views of the bay, bridge, city lights and marina. Views are better than pictured. The home is large, featuring over 3,000sf of living space with a gourmet chef’s kitchen, 2 master suites, large entertaining deck overlooking view, 2,000+ sf of outdoor living space, a high-end spa with fabulous views, koi pond, ping pong table, family games, private gated entry and lush tropical gardens.

Dine, dream and unwind on the outdoor day bed as the ferries, sailboats & cargo ships float by. Watch moon, bridge and city lights shimmer across the water after dusk as you dine alfreso on the large outdoor deck.

Enjoy watching regatta races, the morning fisherman and marvel at the sparkling water from almost every room in the house. Listen to sailboat masts chime, spot seagulls and egrets circling for food and feel the calm of a distant fog horn as an early morning haze clears to dramatic water and bridge views.

This is luxury living at its best, truly a magical and unique place to stay or live and an ideal launching point between San Francisco, wine country, Marin’s famous hiking trails and West Marin’s beaches.

This is our personal home so it is impeccably maintained, rarely available, well appointed and has some of the best views in the Bay Area – we hope you love her as much as we do! Boat slips are available at the marina upon request.

Bienvenidos… mi casa es su casa! We hope you enjoy our little slice of paradise.

About Shannon Phillips

I am a real estate professional, we purchased this home years ago for the incredible location in the heart of Marin County near beaches, San Francisco and wine country and for the wonderful temperate warm weather and panoramic views of the water, bridge and marina. You literally have to turn your head to see the entire view. My wife and I enjoy traveling and have a 5yr old boy and a 8yr old girl. The home is child friendly.

Shannon Phillips purchased this house in 2003

Why Shannon Phillips chose Tiburon

Tiburon is ideally located on the water and close to San Francisco, beaches, shopping, hiking, biking, boating and wine country. We are positioned behind ring mountain to protect us from wind and we are past the fog belt so we have the best closest to the City.

What makes this house unique

Large 3,000 + sf home, unbelievable water, bridge and city lights views, privacy, a rural country feel close to the City and excellent water, hiking and boating access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was such a great find for our family! We had such a wonderful time in Tiburon and this house was perfect for us. We cooked outside every night and really enjoyed the amazing views. It felt like home and was very cozy. This was a beautiful home and a place that we can't wait to get back to.

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a spectacular week at this home! Tiburon is close to so many SF Bay area attractions and yet when we wanted time to just relax, the home offered all the amenities we could have asked for and more! The views of the bay are spectacular and we just couldn't get enough while we were there. Shannon was very helpful and promptly answered any questions that I had before and during our stay. Upon arrival the home was clean and welcoming and you fall in love with the home the minute you see the picture windows overlooking the bay. The hot tub was a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing and the home is furnished with everything you could possibly need to cook meals at home. Our boys enjoyed the ping pong and air hockey tables as well as the close proximity of a public fishing pier. We hit all the well known SF tourist attractions as well as some beautiful hikes and great restaurants in Marin County. We created so many special family memories to treasure always! Thank you Shannon and family for sharing your beautiful home with us this summer. We would love to visit again in the future!

Beautiful views and tranquil setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 couples was lucky enough to spend 6 nights at this home. When you first opened the door it lived up to every picture posted on the VRBO site. There were sweeping views of the bay that could be seen through the large windows of the home, that is if you didn't want to enjoy them from the super large outdoor balcony with comfy furniture. The backyard was enclosed by lush greenery in which you could find private areas to explore and relax.

We used the house as our base while we explored many of the sites that Northern California has to offer, San Francisco, Sausalito, wine country, Monterrey and Carmel etc. The owner Shannon and his wife sent us many suggestions on where to visit during our stay. They also provided a binder which contained everything you needed to know about operating appliances in their home and local stores and restaurants. Our only regret is that we did not build in enough down time to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the house and its setting. We were on the go too much of the time. Would definitely love to come back for a more relaxing visit .

I spent four days at this delightful Tiburon home with my adult daughter and three adult nieces. This is an outstanding home with high end finishes with decks and views to match. The hosts were completely responsive and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Magical views and very comfortable (exclusive) home!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 with older kids, spent 4 lovely nights at this property. The photos on VRBO just do not do this home justice. When we walked in the front door, we were completely blown away by the spectacular views. There is so much more to this property than can fit within the limits of the online listing. When Shannon sent me a detailed writeup of the property, I was pleasantly surprised about how much the property offered. The kids enjoyed the ping pong table and watching the marine layer come and go, while the parents enjoyed the hot tub, which was always at a perfect 104 degrees.

The only "complaint" I heard from my family was that the beds in this house were much more comfortable than the beds in our own home!!

Highly recommended!

Beautiful and relaxing home with amazing views of the bay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this fantastic home. As a family of four we had plenty of room to have relaxing downtime and enjoy the beautiful views of the bay from the deck. The location of the home allowed for easy trips to the ferry into San Francisco and other must see destinations. Muir Woods, Napa Valley, Sausalito, and lovely downtime Tiberon were easily accessible from this wonderful home. Hope to be back next year. Thanks to Shannon for sharing his little slice of heaven.
