About Dana Cappiello

Dana is a designer that travels the world. With a love of flea markets, yoga, writing and nature she seeks to share her magical retreat on the water with you.

Dana Cappiello purchased this house in 2013

Why Dana Cappiello chose San Francisco Bay Area

The view. The unique furnishings. The privacy. Truly the coolest home on the Bay. With lots of room to enjoy the outside, the land is over an acre. Private beach. Set on the water, not the highway. Great alternative to Nick's Cove when you are seeking value, privacy and first class waterfront accommodations!

What makes this house unique

This private property has two homes. Perfect for retreats, special events or landmark holidays. The separate cottage originally was one of the main boat building sites on Tomales Bay. Spacious and unique, it can be used for yoga, lectures or as an extra home for additional guests. It is large and has a full kitchen, bath and separate bedroom.

Just over an hour from San Francisco, yet like visiting another country. Private, yet lots to do. A foodie farm-to-table mecca, with oysters, grass fed beef, organic farms, Cow Girl Creamery, Wineries, Brick Maiden Bakery. Great restaurants or private meals with the farmers. Kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, trail running, hiking, horseback riding, biking or just be lazy. Blissful.

Less than an hour to the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Bodega Bay.

Perfect spot for a family reunion while attending my son's wedding

  • 5 of 5

My son had a three day wedding celebration across Highway 1 at the Strauss Dairy Farm. Dana's Place was the perfect spot for us to stay. It easily accommodated 11 of us (my son slept in the teepee) and the house was well supplied for our needs. Dana has added so many interesting and whimsical touches to the decor ... it was like staying in an eclectic museum. The layout and furniture were perfect for visiting when we were away from the wedding festivities, and the location was ideal for excursions to Point Reyes National Seashore and Bodega Bay. Thank you, Dana for being the perfect hostess and affording us this memorable opportunity.

Beautiful, peaceful, cozy space

This place is absolutely stunning, really cozy, and right on the water. The houses and gardens are beautifully decorated, with a lot of attention to detail. Our group had a really lovely time there. I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful, private, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Dana's house is lovely and she's put a lot of time and care into making it feel warm, inviting, cozy, and well-appointed. The kitchen was extremely well stocked for our cooking projects, the boat house was a great place to socialize and on the other side of the house from the neighbors so we didn't have to worry about disturbing them, the teepee was a great place to relax and nap, and the outdoor areas and the dock were good places to get some alone time. Dana herself was quick to respond to any questions, and let us have late checkout. If invited back, I would love to stay there again.

My only note of warning is that the faucets have a very narrow band between hot and cold, but this isn't a big deal.

Unique and breathtaking getaway. Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this property with 9 others on a girls trip. We were immediately blown away by it's charm and unique decor. The layout is perfect for large groups with 5 double beds plus several single sleeping options and great spaces to gather as a group. The view of the ocean fills the living room through the enormous windows spanning the wall. The bathrooms and kitchen are beautiful and stocked with everything you could need, including your own fresh eggs from the chicken coop. The owner made several suggestions for nearby activities and dining which were all spot on. I am already planning my trip back!!
