"My wife, 19 year old son and his girlfriend, and our 4 year old son spent just over two weeks stating at Nathan’s family home in Sausalito. We are from London, UK, but have vacationed several times in the Bay Area/Sonoma/Napa region so we know the area well but usually stay in hotels in either San Francisco or Sonoma. We wanted a well-appointed, comfortable, and well-positioned home to use a base for day trips as well as a place to just relax which we could call home for the duration of our stay.
The booking process and the check-in and check-out processes were very efficient and well-organised. Nathan handled everything from the initial enquiry, answering a couple of queries through to the check-in/check-out quickly and efficiently.
The property is beautiful, spacious, well-positioned, and well-appointed with wonderful panorama views from Mount Tam round to Tiburon. The property had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxed. All the furnishings, bed linen and towels were of high quality and all the rooms were extremely well-appointed, comfortable and spacious. It truly felt like a home away from home and we were never on top of each other during the entire stay.
The property is situated high on the hill above Sausalito in a very peaceful, quiet and safe neighbourhood but only a few mins drive (20 mins walk) to the centre of Sausalito.
Apart from all the delights and amenities on the doorstep in Sausalito itself, the property is well-located for access to all the main visitor destinations: San Francisco (by ferry, car or bike – or even running according to my son), the Marin Headlands, Mount Tam, Stinson Beach, and Muir Woods, are all just a short distance away. In fact, the Morning Sun trailhead is only five minutes’ walk from the property and from there one can walk all round the Marin Headlands from Golden Gate Bridge to Fort Cronkhite and the Marin Headlands Visitor Centre. The Bay Area Discovery Museum at Fort Baker is five minutes’ drive from the property and is an ideal day out for those with children under the age of 10. In addition, the property is well-positioned for day trips to Sonoma, Napa, Healdsburg, and even further destinations such as Santa Cruz, Monterey and Medocino/Russian River Valley are all possible as day trips. I even did Clearlake via Sonoma on the motorbike. Would we stay again? Yes, absolutely."
