About Catherine Bailey

catherine bailey - owner/creative director Heath ceramics (just up the road from our property). We are a busy family of 3 people one Newfoundland dog and one cat. We travel for our work frequently and are often away on weekends. Thus the cottage is often exceptionally quite.

Catherine Bailey purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Catherine Bailey chose Sausalito

The view and location! You can walk to the water and to town, and drive to San Francisco or the ocean in 10 minutes. Our weather is also beautiful, less wind and fog than in downtown Sausalito.

What makes this cottage unique

Lots of character and history at this property combined with a quite residential location, with easy access to so much nature and culture.

Happy Trails

  • 5 of 5

We promised ourselves an extended stay in California when we retired and this charming cottage was an excellent base for the first few weeks of our trip. It quickly felt like home and was in a great location for sightseeing. The natural beauty of the area completely won us over and we never tired of exploring the Marin Headlands and walking the many trails. Easy day trips included San Francisco, Point Reyes, Napa and Sonoma. Further afield we enjoyed two nights in Mendocino and a third in Fort Ross where the sunset and star gazing were truly magnificent. Closer to home we went to the excellent Mill Valley Arts Festival where we were treated to superb music amongst the redwoods - just magical. Do take the time to explore the hidden steps and paths of Sausalito and Mill Valley and you won't be disappointed. And finally, don't miss a tour of the Heath Ceramics factory just minutes from the cottage. You'll be using the crockery during your stay so go along and learn the history of the company and see how it's made! All in all a great stay - thank you.

Cottage full of charm in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our month stay in this cottage was a wonderful experience! It's only a short walk to many restaurants, shops and a great little beach. Various trails and wilderness areas are only a brief drive from the property. The ferry to San Francisco is nearby and once you arrive at the terminal in the city you have access to wide area via the BART subway system and other public transportation.

The cottage has a wonderful vintage feel and is very tastefully furnished and well equipped. The beautiful unobstructed view of the bay from both the living room and the outside patio is one of the highlights and never gets old.

We highly recommend this property!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Location -location - location is the best way to describe our stay. Although we rented a car it sat for several days as we walked to restaurants, shops and the docks of Sausalito. I even ventured on several walks to the GG bridge. Public transportation provided our link into San Fransisco. As for our hosts, Cathy and her family were very gracious and still distant enough to allow for our privacy. The size and accommodations were ideal and the views were way beyond expectations. We look forward to a return visit.
