I am the founder of the lifestyle brand Maison reve (means dream home in french). My mother is suisse french and i grew up in Montreal. As a child, we were raised to enjoy simple living and now my passion is to inspire others to slow the pace of our busy lives down so we fully enjoy the moment of everyday life. My business has been featured in several national magazines showcasing our signature urban farmhouse design style that you will experience at the carriage house. I live with my Australian born husband (from Sydney) and our two children in our 1893 Victorian home that we fully restored a few years ago.

Yasmine McGrane purchased this house in 2004

Our main home and this seperate detached 1910 historic carriage house in the back garden of property are completely magical. I knew they were special the minute I first walked inside. They are one of the oldest houses in the whole Bay area, main house was built in 1893 by a shipyard captain with the carriage house in 1910. We spent 2 years fully restoring both places and the gardens. We feel very blessed to live in such a wonderful place and raise our young children here. It's not just the spectacular view and all the places to explore, it's the birds that visit the garden each morning, the lovely trees and just the energy of this place is serene. When my husband and I stand on our front porch at night and watch the moon and stars above catching the shimmering light on the Bay it still takes our breath away every time.

The views inspire you to feel grateful for everything in life. The location inspires you to walk to the downtown, take a ferry and explore San Francisco, Napa or Sonoma wine country, the redwood trees in Muir Woods, the lovely California beaches or skiing in Lake Tahoe. The property is a magical retreat in the heart of everything you want to experience. We feel enormously grateful to be able to share this with others from all around the world.

CHRISTMAS IN SAUSALITO

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 15, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Had a wonderful stay at this charming property in Sausalito over the Christmas holidays. The owners were very helpful even before we got there. There was even a cute little Christmas tree and some goodies waiting for us. It was a very easy walk downhill to downtown. My only recommendation would be for the lighting on the pathway to the house be looked at. It was almost nonexistent and hard to navigate at night. Also found the shower to be pretty weak but enjoyed everything else.

One of the most charming and relaxed places we haver stayed

We stayed at the carriage house in October (disorganisation and extreme business have led to the delay in reviewing).
From the moment we arrived the whole place was so relaxing - we would happily have lounged around all day for the full week were we not visiting friends.
The place was so cosy and yasmine was amazing - helping us with every request.
We spent far too long drinking wine on the terrace overlooking the bay and would probably have spent longer were it not for the fantastic location in Sausalito.
We will be back at some point and many apologies to yasmine for the delay in reviewing.

Perfect for our Little Family

We spent a week at this lovely carriage house with our infant son. Yasmine graciously provided a crib and changing table! The welcome tea, wine and pastries is delightful. Fresh flowers throughout the house, Gorgeous linens, luxurious robes, tasteful decor and clean home all made for a wonderful visit. She even provided a blow up bed for New Year's Eve when we had visitors!

My two little complaints would be that the shower leaves a bit to be desired and the kitchen needs a decent knife. Nothing that would stop us from returning, however.

Thank you very much, Yasmine, for offering such a lovely space.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah for your five star review! And for your suggestions -- we had just put in that new rain showerhead bc it looked so nice on the packaging! I found out there are more settings -- low and strong. I think we had it set to low when you came. But my plumber has a new model so we plan to upgrade again. One day I would even like to put in a new clawfoot tub/shower combo if possible. Sorry about the knives. Being a big cook myself, I can relate to the need for sharp knives :-) I hope the bag of knives I left after your requested them were a bit better. I had forgotten I borrowed them from the carriage house for a big Thanksgiving dinner I hosted and didn't put them back before you arrived. I also resharped them bc they needed it and bought a brand new set of David Mellor knives today just for the carriage house. Gorgeous and super sharp for guests to cook to their hearts content! So thanks for your helpful feedback -- it motivated me to finally get that off my list. Hope you liked the New Years fireworks on the Bay. Have a great year. And I loved your creative thoughts you left about the girl painting! Yasmine

Unique Getaway!

  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Getting away for a couple of nights with relatively little notice turned out great at the Carriage House! Yasmine was responsive to our request and treated us wonderfully inlcluding the presentation of a Christmas tree on Sunday night! She has created a unique and intersting home that is welcoming and comfortable. Plenty of books to read and no media devices made for a peaceful, relaxing couple of nights. Easy to get to shops and restaraunts and a relatively short drive or ferry ride to hikes and other fun spots. Nice to wake up and look out to the beautiful and tranquil Richardson Bay. Go enjoy the Carriage House, you will love it!

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure meeting you and Lety. You both were amazing guests and left the carriage house impeccable. We hope you visit again soon (as I type this response the sun is glistening on the San Francisco Bay -- it's gorgeous!) I hope to stay at your lovely vrbo rental one day.

Charming elegant cottage!!!

  • Submitted: Sep 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Our short visit of 3 nights in this charming cottage was so wonderful! Yasmine's warm greeting with wine and homemade french pastry awaiting us was wonderful! It was such a gorgeous cozy cottage with beautiful fine linens on the bedding. The view was spectacular looking at the bay with mega yacht's moored close by!! We unfortunately were too busy to really sit and enjoy! So I'm going back for sure!! I want to go back and cook something lovely and sit and read on the porch. The location is fabulous too! And must mention that all the lotions, shampoos etc were so lovely. Great attention to detail. If you are wanting to stay in Sausalito this is a wonderful place to stay!!! Loved it ~ Thanks Yasmine!

Imagine walking through a white picket fence, passing organic vegetables and smelling the scent of lemon thyme as you travel the winding path to your front door. Take a leisurely stroll up secret staircases between beautiful Victorian homes in old town sausalito at the end of the day. Awake to blue jays chirping as you meditate in your airy upper bedroom. Clip fresh mint from your porch garden and sip in a vintage tea cup while watching the sun rise each morning. Walk to a local yoga class on a saturday morning just 10 minute from home. Enjoy a fresh baked croissant at local coffee shops while people watching. Lay in bed as you listen to the mystical fog horns on a quintessential San Francisco evening while immersed in a good book. Walk to the ferry terminal just 10 minutes walk away passing fishing boats and rowers out on the bay before taking a ferry into san francisco for site seeing, Visting Alcatraz or perhaps exploring the San Francisco ferry building. Bike on a sunday morning to sausalito’s farmers market and take cooking classes at one of many local cooking schools. Treat yourself to a spa day at great spas like Cavallo point just 5 minutes away. Share a moment with a friend or family member and glass of wine watching the sunset and sailboats drifting by without leaving your front porch. Relax into the person you were born to be.
