Property description

Brand new beautiful vacation and meeting space located right on the San Francisco Bay shore with majestic views of Mt Tamalpais, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Richmond Bridge. Book a romantic week or weekend that you just can't experience anywhere else. Perfectly located for Bay Area exploration: wine country, SF, Muir Beach….skip city traffic and relax!!

Hang out in our space with radiant floor heat, grand 13 foot ceilings with 12 foot window-wall, huge yoga floor and watercraft just steps from the sumptuous bed.

As you fall asleep, listen to the waves lapping on the shore.

Located on the romantic "Richmond Riviera", this grand new space features 13 foot high ceilings with a glass wall on the bay, comfy bed, and decks galore. Want to get out on the bay for sunset? You're Just steps from your own private beach with kayaks and canoe available.

Enjoy this space to be creative, to relax or be active. Make art or write. Practice yoga or move to your music coming from the amazing sound system. Bike, kayak or canoe.

Then take a short walk over the hill to the Hotel Mac for a cocktail and prime rib dinner, or the Up and Under Rugby Pub for quiz night with a bunch of anglophiles. Choose from several restaurants.

Birding. Since we live on a cliff, onshore breezes from Marin bunch up to create a consistent updraft that draws hawks, herons, and egrets right to our front window. On the water you'll see cormorants, pelicans, gulls, grebes, coots can be seen, especially when the herring run. And even the occasional owl or osprey in search of a delectable mouse.

Use our binoculars to watch the ballet of tugboats pirouetting tankers and cargo ships, ferries cutting a quick path across the Bay, or regattas of sailboats flying their colorful spinnakers before the Spring breezes.

Take a bike ride out to Keller Beach and the beautiful Miller Knox park, along the newly inaugurated 500-mile long Bay Trail. Visit Rosie the Riveter or the Richmond Marina - the closest marina to the Golden Gate from the East Bay.

For your second night, take nearby BART to San Francisco for all it has to offer.

Enjoy yourself in one of the world's premier urban environments while relaxing at this beautiful waterfront location too. Best of both worlds!

Location

The uniqueness of this space is its location within the SF bay area. To be on the water in such a fantastic metropolitan area and just 30 minutes from the city and 40 minutes from the wine country and Muir Woods. Special location!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Kit is a retired high school principal and artist. Jeff is a retired math professor. We are having all kinds of fun making this space cool, and meeting the folks who come to enjoy it.

Why the Owner Chose Point Richmond, Richmond, CA, USA:
Why not? To live in one of the world's most exciting urban areas PLUS be right on the water is a dream come true. Point Richmond is the hidden jewel of San Francisco Bay. Why deal with the hub-bub of Sausalito, Berkeley or the Marina District in the City, when you can hang in the Richmond Riviera, a tiny village with 4 bars, 8 restaurants, 3 yacht club / marinas, historic public pool, library and miles upon miles of little-used public bay shoreline and parks? And all within striking distance of the City, Marin, Berkeley and Oakland?

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It's all about the water, the view and the closeness to everything wonderful about the Bay Area. Bonus for being located in a charming small town.
