Views, Views, and more Views! Our unit has panoramic windows for which you can enjoy world class views of the Golden Gate Bridge, parts of San Francisco, and Angel Island.

The amazing 5 minutes walk to downtown Tiburon, where you can catch the ferry to San Francisco, Sausalito, Angel Island, Or just stay in town and shop, dine, wine tasting, see a movie, or just have a cup of coffee and watch the many ferries and sailboats coming in and out of the Yacht clubs. Tiburon is home to 2 exclusive yacht clubs, Corinthian Yacht Club, and The San Francisco Yacht Club. There are sailboat races every Friday, Saturday and most Sundays. In town there is a beautiful Library, with two fireplaces. Curl up or bring a book back, and watch the many sailboats and listen to the waves from the panoramic windows. You won't want to leave!
What’s to Like About This Location: Everything! The location is hard to beat! Amazing views you can’t see anywhere else, with a 5-minute walk to town with nothing but incredible views the entire way. From this home you can watch the hundreds of sailboats that race along Raccoon Strait almost every weekend, right in front of the house, along with the giant tankers and container ships that motor through the Golden Gate every day. Angel Island has history dating back to the Civil War days, so take a historical tour of the Island, rent bikes or Segways, walk, or just catch a ride on the Island train. Muir Woods, the wine country, many beaches: all are only a very short drive or ferry ride away. There’s just too much to mention!
Restaurants in Town: Tiburon’s Main Street, an easy 5 minute walk, is picturesque and quaint, with excellent restaurants, including Servino’s (Italian) right on the waterfront, which has no-cover live music many evenings, Guaymas (excellent Mexican seafood), the famous Sam’s Anchor Café, (known worldwide), Waypoint Pizza, The Tiburon Grill and more. For breakfast or lunch, our favorite is a funky little local hangout called the New Morning Cafe, but all cafes serve the best food and coffee, so you can’t go wrong.
Other helpful ideas – Woodlands Market (groceries), a wonderful movie theater, drycleaners, an amazing library with two fireplaces and a wealth of information on our little town community called Tiburon and Belvedere.
Friday Nights in Tiburon: Friday nights are something really special in Tiburon. Between April and October, the Main Street is closed to traffic and there’s a big street party on Friday nights. The restaurants serve dinner al fresco, and there are two or more live bands! Also, on Friday nights, from 5:30 to 8:00 PM, check out the Friday Night Races at the Corinthian Yacht Club and San Francisco Yacht Club (April to September). You can watch the races from shore, or if you want to volunteer (no charge, no experience necessary), you can be a crew member on a race! If you’re interested in this, please ask the owner, he’ll fill you in on the details. If you are a sailing enthusiast, we definitely need to talk!
