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. You can step out onto the patio of this home with a glass of wine, and just enjoying the surroundings. From this home you can watch the hundreds of sailboats that race along Raccoon Strait almost every weekend, right in front of the house, and witness 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: and other attractions are all 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 10 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 (with special happy hour pricing every afternoon/evening) 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 the end of the month and there’s a big street party. 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!
