About the property

Magnificent, quiet 1+ bedroom suite in architectural gem. Walk to everything!

This is a dream suite. Romantic, spacious, light-filled, with panoramic Bay & city views, it is completely separate, quiet and private. One flight up in an immaculately maintained century-old home, it boasts a honeymoon, over-sized bathtub for two and a large steam room. The giant bedroom with a king poster bed and the dining area share magnificent, dramatic views through a tall, 25-foot wide window. The living room, with some views, has a leather couch with pull-out queen bed and a flat-screen television. The gourmet kitchen with all-stainless Bosch appliances is a chef's delight. Additionally there is cable, Roku a DVD player and excellent wi-fi service.

Please note: FOR use with 3 or 4 GUESTS, the pull-out is very comfortable, but there is NOT complete privacy between living room and bedroom However, especially for CHILDREN, the entry VESTIBULE provides a good-sized, EXTRA, FULLY PRIVATE ROOM.

Walk steps in any direction to San Francisco's best restaurants, shops and classic sights such as Fisherman's Wharf, the Embarcadero, Union Square and Chinatown. No need for a car: just walk, take the bus or take Uber.

DO NOT PAY THROUGH VRBO arrange directly with us for payment. SORRY - NO PETS!

Cow Hollow/Marina is just one of our many wonderful listings. We also have places to rent in Sausalito, New York City, & Cape Cod, Massachusetts.


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 occasionally 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 people 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 are posted outside front entry.

Baseball enthusiasts can take in Wareham Gatemen games of the Cape Cod League during the summer, seeing young talent as they progress to the major leagues. Last, but not least, for history buffs the famous whaling city of New Bedford and Plymouth Plantation are each approximately twenty minutes away. How wonderful for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday.

Wonderful place, very comfortable and the location was the best

  • 5 of 5

We came to San Francisco for the first time and fell in love with this place. The apartment was in the most convenient location and in a very quaint neighborhood. The neighborhood had so many local shops and eateries within walking distance. I would highly recommend this place to stay

Beautiful, Inspiring, and Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in San Francisco was absolutely wonderful in this incredible space. The view is spectacular, the home is superbly furnished and clean, and the neighborhood is charming and safe. We walked along the water, visited the Sunday Farmer's market, and enjoyed a variety of delicious meals from restaurants recommended by our host. Jonathan was extremely communicative before and during our stay, and we felt very welcomed. We would definitely love to stay in this beautiful home again!

Great Area

Clean, quiet and all around nice. Pillows are not that great and A/C doesnt work that well but very noce and we would stay again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the pillow feedback. They are pricey pillows, but we'd be happy to get more if you let us know what didn't work about them. There is no AC in the house or in almost any older home (except Mark Zuckerberg's) in SF. Partly because of the age; mostly because the city rarely gets warm enough to warrant it. Even fans are rarely needed, but the apartment does have several.

Perfect location, incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. The location was perfect for our visit and view incredible. Great restaurants and stores were with in walking distance and every thing in SF accessible by Uber or Lyft. After long days of exploring SF it was wonderful to come back to the property and enjoy the wonderful view. We never felt like we were missing out! Shower/steam bath was a surprise amenity that was very much enjoyed. Would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone wanting a quiet neighborhood but walking distance to restaurants and things to do.

Magnificent View in a Unique Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The good- Best view of the bay you could ask for. Comfortable bed. Convienent parking. Nice neighbourhood.

The bad- not to much to say here. I would recommend cleaning out the refrigerator, but that would not stop me from staying here again.

The unique - it is a quirky apartment. The hot tub is in the living space. The refrigerator is in the entry way. The faucets are interesting to say the least. All of it amused us.

Nothing will beat the view and the fireplace is really nice on cool nights. If you are looking for a great place, this is it.

Owner's Response: Lovely guests. I would just point out that the apartment has two refrigerators. The one in the kitchen is always left clean and empty for our guests. One off the vestibule holds a modest supply of our food (with extra room for guests) and we assume the guests are referring to that when they ask that it be cleaned out.
