Our family loves to travel, to cook, to get value, and stay at unique places. The archbishop's mansion fits all of these. The mansion is a beautifully rendered mixture of an historic turn of the century building that has updated with modern fixtures, furniture and art. The communal kitchen is a dream and the staff attentive and super helpful. Definitely loved the stay and will be looking for a reason to return.
I cannot express how much I LOVED staying at the Bay Sanctuary! The hosts are absolutely the KINDEST and most welcoming people I've EVER met! The house was use as described and the pictures accurate down to the letter. The area is quiet, safe and absolutely gorgeous! The facilities were exactly as pictured and all in perfect condition. The massive bathroom was a perfect way to wind down at the end of the day after a nice little bit in the hot tub! The bed was like a wonderful cloud and the kitchen was the perfect way to make my own food without having to spend a fortune eating out. The sitting area with the grill was amazing as well and a great space to hang out. Breakfast and reading on the patio was perfect with a gorgeous view of the bay. A quick walk to a beach and to town left lots for me do to in my down time. The hosts were so kind and gave extreme attention to detail and making sure my stay was wonderful and smooth. I say that a stay at the Bay Sanctuary is a necessity for anyone going to the bay area!!
