About Lee

The owner lives in the house above the studio.

Why Lee chose San Francisco Bay Area

I moved to Marin County from the east coast, because I wanted to be in a beautiful location that allowed you easy access to culture, sports and nature. I have found all that here!

What makes this studio unique

This house is surrounded by eucalyptus trees, but you can still see the water. Mt Tamalpais's peak looms in view from every level. Easy access to 101, ferry and town while still feeling like you're in nature. Great walking and biking. The water front is just down the hill along with great restaurants and beautiful views. What's not to love!


Car: recommended

Close to Muir Woods, Sausalito & Stinson Beach, Golden Gate National Recreational area, hiking trails, minutes to San Francisco over Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito Ferry to San Francisco, 1 hour drive to Napa & Sonoma Valley's in wine country.

The studio was perfect for me (in wheelchair) and my wife. We could park our car on the drive way. We loved Sausalito and is well located go both in to down town SF and up in Marin county and the wine country.

Lovely spot overlooking the gardens and the bay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely studio apartment in Sausalito! Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Accessibility from the street was so easy - no stairs at all! We could park our car safely in front of the garage door. We spent each morning sitting out on the deck, drinking our coffee, and enjoying the scenic views. We chatted with Lee a couple of times who tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Beautiful spot!!!!

the perfect spot for exploring San Francisco and surrounds

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment, tastefully furnished with amazing views. We had everything we needed apart from a washing machine but the launderette is a 5 min drive away. The kitchen is really only suitable for breakfast but that didn't matter as there are lots of lovely restaurants in the area and a supermarket with ready cooked foods and salads. we felt very much at home in the apartment and Lee was a wonderful host.We'd return to the apartment if we ever come back to SF.

Great Setting

  • 4 of 5

I loved the little apartment but it is indeed small. It is no bigger than a large hotel room. I am not sure if you include the cleaning fee, etc. it is worth the amount they asked. I have always used VRBO not only to get unique locations but also typically lower cost. For a few dollars more, I could of had a hotel in the heart of town.

Having said all of the above, it was a very cute place with beautiful views from the balcony and a couple of windows. The owner lives upstairs but we never saw her during the entire stay except to pick up and drop off the keys. We could hear her walking around upstairs from time to time but it didn't bother us.

We had a delightful stay at the apartment and especially Sausalito and the surrounding area!
