EXTRAORDINARY BEACH FRONT HOME, views from almost every room; walk to town
Unparalleled location for tourists: steps from bus stop to SF, walk to ferry, drive 4 minutes to Golden Gate Bridge or simply stay where you are and walk to town to enjoy the best that Sausalito has to offer without having to drive. It's like being in a small European village. Sip coffee with the locals, listen to local music, dine on fresh seafood, take in a movie. Great hikes and bike trails close by. The location is remarkably private & quiet despite close proximity to everything.
House has great gourmet-equipped, large kitchen & dining room. Grand living room with breathtaking view. MBR with full, great views, private deck & master bath with jacuzzi tub. (Bay views from the tub.) Fall asleep to the gently lapping of waves and awake to a stunning sunrise over Angel Island. Seals often visit and occasional dolphins. We swim daily - weather permitting, the water is very comfortable. Great for kayaking with rental places nearby. Bike riding is another popular activity here. We are probably the closest short-term rental to the Cavallo Point resort (where one room can cost more than our whole property).
Please note that our home is in a very peaceful, serene part of Old Town, Sausalito. As you walk down the long path to the water, the home is nestled behind a gate. Just 25 minutes from the SF Airport and minutes from San Francisco, this coastal area is perfect for those that love to walk, hike, bike, relax and enjoy each other. A rejuvenating experience for the body and spirit.
We understand that many wish to have events and parties and in fact we love a good time ourselves. If that is your need then OUR HOME is NOT the place for you. Security cameras at outside front entry.
Sausalito is just one of our many wonderful listings. We also have places to rent in New York City, Cape Cod, Massachusetts and the Cow Hollow/Marina District of San Francisco.
We also have a 1 bedroom in Cow Hollow with panoramic views and 15 lovely apartments in New York City
Plus, visit our CAPE COD, MASSACHUSETTS – VRBO #103873

Why Jonathan Herrick chose Old Town
This is one of the most remarkable locations, if not the most remarkable location, in all of the USA. It offers the very best of nature and culture: living right on the water yet a short walk into town and a 7 minute drive to S.F

Spectacular house. Spectacular View. Spectacular experience.
This house is perfect on all fronts - graciousness of owner, location, views and accomodations. The house is within easy walking distance to all Sausalito has to offer and is great for large families or a large group of friends. Everything was first class, and as advertised. Would love to come back.
Home with an amazing view!!
We loved staying at this great property tucked away in Sausalito! There was lots of room for two families of five to stay comfortably. We were walking distance from shops and restaurants. My favorite part of this home was sitting in the living room and enjoying the amazing view of the bay. We would definitely stay here again.
Gorgeous Sausalito home with incredible view
We love Sausalito and poured over many different listings before we found this incredible home. There were six of us on a family vacation to San Fran and wine country. This home has it all -- four beautiful bedrooms, a gorgeous family room with the most incredible view of the Bay you'll ever see, and a fabulous kitchen. We also enjoyed the beachfront (where dogs and their owners would take leisurely walks) and the hot tub. We spent plenty of time on the deck outside enjoying the view -- and even saw a couple seals on several different occasions (they apparently love the view, too!). The home is tucked away and provides a very quiet and peaceful setting, but you're also within walking distance to everything Sausalito has to offer -- great restaurants, shops, markets, the ferry, etc. Additionally, Jonathan and Kate were so helpful and attentive to any questions we had. Plus, Jonathan sent a comprehensive list of things to see and do, restaurant recommendations, etc. that was very helpful in the planning of the trip. If you're contemplating this property, do yourself a favor and make the reservations -- you won't regret it!
Wonderful property and visit to Sausalito. Plenty of room for our extended family to all stay and wnjoy the beach and the area. Grocery store with walking distance, easy transportation options. We watched seals swim in the evening and woke up to waves crashing each morning. Would love to stay there again.
Great View, Excellent Service
The pictures and descriptions speak for themselves and are accurate to what you will enjoy at the house.
I wanted to write to compliment the service of both the owner and property manager. We had 3 families flying in from 2 different states, as well as different check-in/check-out dates at the house. I had the task of managing different needs/expectations of our family when planning this reunion, and the owner was very accommodating and flexible with our moving parts, individual preferences, and visitors. When we arrived, the property manager kept in touch and was readily available for anything we needed, yet allowed us our privacy...in fact, we never had the opportunity to even meet face to face. They both quickly responded to questions we had from beginning to end.
We absolutely loved Sausalito, and this house was within a manageable drive to many things we wanted to see, including Fisherman's Wharf, downtown SF, and the redwood forest.
Thank you to Jonathan and Kate for everything!

Gorgeous home right on the water
This is a really unique, older home right on the water in Sausalito. The location is amazing -- it's walking distance to the ferry and "downtown" Sausalito but feels completely apart from all the chaos of a busy Sausalito touristy weekend. It's serene and also very close to the great hiking in the area. The owner was extremely easy to work with and the house had all sorts of lovely touches (flowers everywhere, wine, cheese and fruit, etc. left for us). We were so surprised and delighted. It has three floors and lots of windows onto the water. The bottom floor exits to a small yard and hot tub; the second floor has a lovely patio with lounges and table, and the main floor has a kitchen, dining area and large living space. More beds and bathrooms than we could use! We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more, or felt more at home at this spot.
