Overview

Tiburon Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedroom Suites, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-5) in Tiburon

No hotel or resort can offer the privacy, stunning views or luxurious amenities of our Golden Gate Villa. Located on the beautiful Tiburon Peninsula, in close proximity to everything San Francisco has to offer. No other villa rental can compare.

Who knew a San Francisco villa rental could be like this? Located on a quarter-acre estate; our luxury villa is a private, rejuvenating, 3,000 sq.ft. space. With its beautifully manicured gardens and quality designer furnishings, it's the perfect place to take a breath, relax and recover; choose a different activity every day or to entertain.

If you want to explore, there are endless things to see and do. Dynamic and historic San Francisco is only a 15 minute ferry ride away. You're within easy reach of many different attractions including world-class golf at Pebble Beach, tours of famous Alcatraz Island or Hearst Castle and tickets to Giants' baseball games.

The San Francisco Bay is perfect for boating or sailing, and there are many wonderful beaches to explore.

Our luxury villa is located at the water's edge, over-looking historic Tiburon, with its many restaurants, cafes, shopping and the popular 'Friday nights on Main Street'.

Villa Golden Gate features dramatic, open architecture and soaring 16-foot ceilings. We have a library of over 300 books for you to enjoy, and throughout the home are special treasures, such as an original Louis XVI mirror, Kandinsky lithographs and an exclusive 1922 Capiello poster.

The living room's giant picture window affords an unobstructed, 250 degree view, including San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Mt. Tamalpais. With its 5 foot tall limestone fireplace and lovely handmade Stark leopard carpet, there are also three luxurious white sofas, two of which fold out into comfortable queen and twin beds. Hidden in the fireside cabinetry is a large flat screen TV with satellite service and DVD player along with children and adult toys.

The dining room, with its hand-crafted Ruhlmann buffet and hand-painted Nancy Corzine table, is adorned with a 350-year old pair of Louis XV, bronze dore' candelabra. The silver is Christofle and the linens are luxurious Irish and Italian. French double doors open to a large, wrap-a-round balcony, and the large picture and mitered corner windows provide reach-out-and-touch views of The Golden Gate Bridge and The San Francisco skyline.

Everyone's favorite room, the kitchen, features imported French lighting, an Italian marble island, Gaggenau appliances and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. Another French door leads out to the balcony, with its new DCS BBQ and imported Italian wood burning pizza oven. Our concierge can provide you with a personal chef for all or part of your stay. We will stock the refrigerator as you require. The kitchen's view is of The City and Bridge as well.

The Hermitage office is the perfect place to take care of any business affairs. The 2nd Kandinsky hangs here, over a special antique marble fireplace mantle, filled with fossils. Telephone, fax, printer, WiFi, iPad, iPod, B & O speakers for all iProducts and a MacBook Pro laptop are available for your use. You will find all books here, specifically on California. There are also file cabinets organized with all the information you may need to run the villa, and every office supply. An ADS music system controls built-in speakers throughout the house from here, and your view is of The City skyline.

And, saving the best for last, the sumptuous master suite; from where you have a stunning view of Mt. Tamalpais, known as the Sleeping Lady by the local Miwok indians, as well as of the Golden Gate. This all-white room is adorned with beautiful Italian lighting, new shag carpeting, a king sized Duxiana bed, flat screen TV, and French doors opening to your private patio, where a new McGuire chaise lounge for two awaits. The owner's collection of 12 vintage photographs hang here, as well as the 3rd Kandinsky.

Every detail in the master suite is designed for two. All maple walk-in closets with a delightful Louis XV mirror, and hidden 'pocket' doors for your privacy. This is where you will find your El Safe, for the security of your personal belongings.

And next is the all Beaumaniere French marble, master bathroom; with a 2 person shower, vanity table, double vanity sinks and a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath tub, of course, for two. And a beautiful view, as with every room.

Because the villa was designed by the owner, great attention was made to every detail. Next to your maple closets is where the spacious laundry room is located, with another French door leading to a special private patio with table and chairs over-looking an antique fountain.

Finally, our large, private Junior Suite, with lovely shower, desk, easy chair, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee maker and private shade garden with seating and marble table.

About Sandra Stevens

I Worked in the Hotel industry AND on Rodeo Drive, where I learned the art of catering to a person's or guests' every need. This, coupled with my extensive, First Class travel experiences taught me all the luxurious appointments First Class traveler's expect.

Sandra Stevens purchased this villa in 1999

Why Sandra Stevens chose Tiburon

I was 'smitten' by Belvedere, on my first visit here in 1984, and haven't regretted one minute of this love affair. I had the great fortune and ability to design and build Villa Golden Gate, which was then named by 2 Roman guests, telling me: 'They don't even build villas this beautiful in Rome any longer!'

What makes this villa unique

Villa Golden Gate is located directly above downtown Tiburon and only 15 minutes to San Francisco, by ferry. The villa's Concierge has lived here 30 years and can make almost anything happen, making your stay enjoyable, in every way.

A Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in Villa Golden Gate, and it was wonderful. The views are, indeed, absolutely jaw-dropping; and amazingly, they change dramatically with the time of day or weather. Yet they are truly equaled by the beauty of the villa itself (meticulously designed by the owner Sandra), with its vaulted spaces and outdoor terraces.

As noted in another review, the villa is rather like a penthouse, as Sandra and her assistant live on the floor below, though totally separately. And they both go out of their way to be unobtrusive yet responsive to any request immediately. It is definitely hotel service in a villa rental.

The main living space is large and open, with a bedroom suite and luxurious bath, living room, dining area, eat-in kitchen, laundry, powder room and office, all with fantastic views.

We had friends visit, and made use of the 2nd bedroom (and full bath) and living room sleep sofa. This 2nd bedroom is totally separate, on the lower level, and is accessed via the front terrace and outdoor steps. It is large and can be set up as a king size bed or two twins. The living room sleep sofa was reported to be very comfortable.

The villa's location is really ideal for visiting local Marin towns, the coastal regions and wine country. It's also an easy walk into town (if you don't mind steep hills and steps), where you can have breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks at any number of restaurants, shop, go for a run, or hop a ferry to San Fran or Angel Island. Regardless of your activities, I guarantee you will be anxious to return "home" to this piece of paradise.

We were certainly sad to have our month here end, but we are comforted by the hope that we can return to this very special place in the future!

The sleep sofa was, as reported to us, quite comfortable.

Beautiful view of the bay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Villa Golden Gate in Tiburon. The windows throughout the place really bring the outside to the inside. As is true with most places that hold a stunning view, the pictures just do not do the place justice. The gardens smelled wondrous and were immediately noticeable as we stepped out of our vehicle. Tiburon is a wonderful retreat when visiting the city. Our kids were often eager to get back to our place at the end of the day so they could play in the courtyard and look for the koi fish. Sandra really took care of us, and we would definitely consider staying here again for future visits to San Francisco. Many thanks!!!

Owner's Response: Oh thank you for such a lovely review. It reminds me that we need to replace some Koi that the seabirds, that fly over the house daily, dive down and steal them! Only sorry not to hear that you used the new, old time popcorn machine. Makes simply great huge white kernels for only a nickel a bag...

Luxurious Home & Dream Come True Views

  • 5 of 5

I loved my week in Sandra's home! There was not one detail that was left out. The home is very comfortable and beautifully decorated; the views of the bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Angel

Island, Tiburon, etc. are spectacular day and night; the kitchen was aplenty with cookware,

appliances, a Keurig coffeemaker (with a variety of pods), bottled water, a professional hand juicer, etc.; the outdoor gas BBQ was CLEAN; there's an outdoor fire pit ( Sandra thoughtfully included firewood.); the linen is "5 star"; it's a quiet house in a lovely location. Downtown Tiburon is just a few minutes away. There are restaurants, CVS pharmacy and a great grocery store. If you like to hike, there are great hiking trails. The internet wifi and the tv/cable stations are good. The master bath has heated floors. There are puzzles and books galore. Would I rent the house again? ABSOLUTELY!

A stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this lovely villa was beyond my imagination. It felt as though I had entered a different world ... almost a Garden of Eden, overlooking a breathtaking scene encompassing the Golden Gate Bridge. Loving plants and flowers, I was amazed at the different varieties Sandra embraced in her landscaping of the villa. It was a vacation I will always remember with very pleasant thoughts.

Outstanding place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

Tiburon is a refreshing change of pace from downtown San Francisco but offered the best of both worlds in the sense that with a quick ferry ride you have access to Fisherman's wharf and a starting point for day trips in the downtown area/alcatraz but you still get the peaceful "small-town" feel of Tiburon at the end of each day. And what a place to stay in Tiburon ! Villa golden Gate exceeded expectations in every regard. No trick photography on the vrbo website.

What you see is what you get. The view is as good as it gets. You will not regret renting this property. Very helpful property management yet another plus.
