Private, quiet, this townhouse's location is unsurpassed, in the heart of historical Tiburon. You can walk to quaint Main Street and its ferry landing and movie theatre as well as the village's boutiques and cafes, such as Sam's Anchor Cafe. Just 5 miles from Highway 101, it's a short drive or ferry ride to the exciting, world class city of San Francisco and the redwoods of Muir Woods and the beaches beyond.
Comfortably furnished, this upscale accommodation has wood floors, a full gourmet kitchen, fireplace and a guest bath downstairs. A sunny balcony has a table, chairs and a chaise. Upstairs, two carpeted bedrooms feature quality linens and decor; a sky-lit, tiled bathroom has a tub and shower.
I'm a native San Franciscan and lifelong resident of the area and I welcome our guests to enjoy themselves at our comfortable townhouse.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 1972
The location is perfect, very near the Tiburon/Belvedere Library and a couple of blocks from downtown Tiburon. Since it's on a hillside on a quiet street it's close to everything and has nice views. I love the bay breezes, the views of the islands and I love how, at Christmastime, there's a fantastic night view of all the houses and their holiday lights.
I've always kept it upgraded and well-maintained with antiques and high-quality furnishings. I put custom cabinetry in the kitchen and wood floors on the bottom level. Upstairs I have added luxury linens and a skylight in a previously dark bathroom. It's all charmingly decorated and designed to be very comfortable.
I and my little Shih Tzu spent January and February in this townhouse and it could not have been more perfect for us. The place is so charming with its cozy atmosphere which I found very comfortable. I have stayed in other rentals during the winter in Tiburon, all of which have been nice, but this was much quieter and warmer and had all of the amenities one could want, including covered parking onsite. It is so convenient to Woodlands Market (a block), the library (on the next corner), the waterfront and ferry to SF, restaurants, shops and salons (just a few blocks). I walked everywhere. The owner and her assistant were unbelievably accommodating and friendly and I enjoyed getting to know them. Since I live in Maryland, am retired, want to spend time with my daughter and family who live nearby the townhouse and like to escape the cold and snow, I hope to stay there next winter!
We stayed here over the 2012 Thanksgiving holiday and into December -- me, my two sons (2 yrs and 1), my husband our nanny -- and we had a great time! With the 2 queen beds in the 2 rooms upstairs, and our two Joovy play pens for the boys to sleep (one in each room), we all fit just fine.
Everything was immaculate and you can see that the owner takes a lot of pride in the property. The place is really special; very charming and is full of everything you need to cook, do laundry, clean sheets and towels, etc. We were worried about the stairs but the owner had child safety gates that she lent us to use at the top and bottom of the stairs. She also had some other things for the kids which was a huge help to us and very thoughtful of her.
The location is tops. It was wonderful to be so close to Woodland Market (very upscale market) and downtown Tiburon with the fabulous restaurants, nightlife, the bay, boat to Angel Island, etc. and also to be only a short drive from San Francisco. Way better than staying Sausalito which is overrun with tourists, in Tiburon you really feel like a local. We were able to walk the short distance to the cute Tiburon library and check out books and cds/dvds for the kids and take them to Belvedere park to play.
This rental is ideal for couples or girls get-away weekend or families. Perfect place to hole up in all day, explore locally, or get out and see what Marin and San Francisco has to offer! We are looking forward to staying here again in May.
We were very happy to spend the summer in Tiburon. It is a wonderful community, with lots to offer. We are a local family relocating and we thought we were in a wonderful and safe place... the day we were to move in, the other party was not out. When we arrived, it had been partially cleaned. There was dog urine throughout the apartment, including on the pillows. The sink in the bathroom was cracked in the bowl and leaked in to everything under the sink and we repaired it ourselves so as not to disturb the elderly owner. It seemed more like a storage unit for the owner, way too much stuff! The location is wonderful for walking to town and the marsh area. The apartment is very noisy due to the commercial units just below. They spend all weekend blowing the driveway!!!
