Overview

Tiburon House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Who knew that such a beautiful and tranquil setting could be found so close to San Francisco?? Located just 4 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge, this is a two bedroom, two bath villa in Tiburon Belvedere, with stunning bay and San Francisco city views from every room.

The living room features breathtaking panoramic views of San Francisco Bay, Angel Island, and Berkeley to San Francisco. The house is complete with surrounding grounds, including garden and fruit trees.

Living room includes Telescope, game cabinet, piano, and a fireplace with gas starter. Redwood deck overlooking view, with barbecue.

Dining room seats eight, has gorgeous views and vaulted ceiling.

Gourmet kitchen with granite counters, professional quality gas range, and double wide refrigerator with ice maker, oven, microwave, and warming tray. Kitchen opens to living room and dining room via two sets of French doors. Kitchen has vaulted ceiling with skylight.

(IMPORTANT: this is an ENTIRE DETACHED HOUSE, NOT AN APARTMENT OR CONDO, unlike SOME OTHER rentals in this area that try to deceive you. For example, there is a property advertised as a luxury home, that, if you read the reviews, you'll find out that the owner also lives in the house and occasionally needs to use the bathroom. Yuck. We aren't playing any such games here. I strongly recommend you read ALL of the reviews for any property before renting to get the full picture.)

What We Like About This Location:

When we're at home, we love to watch the hundreds of sailboats that race along Racoon Strait, right in front of the house, and the giant tankers and container ships that sail through the Golden Gate.

We love walking from the house along the shoreline, to downtown Tiburon. The ferry terminal is right there, there’s no better way to visit San Francisco than by ferry.

Tiburon's Main Street, which is right there, is picturesque and quaint, with lots of excellent restaurants.

You can also take a ferry boat to Angel Island State Park (the large island that you see in the bay right in front of the house).

By car, you can be in San Francisco or the Wine Country in minutes.

(Please note: Please read the Terms and Conditions regarding the cleaning deposit, property damage insurance and credit card authorization.)

This house is available for 30 day rentals.

About Owner

We love to travel, and occasionally make our home available to rent when we are away.

Owner purchased this house in 1989

Why Owner chose The Bay Area

Awesome views, excellent climate, and fantastic small town with small town feel, great shops, and excellent restaurants, and easy access by ferry to San Francisco, plus close proximity to Napa and Sonoma Valley wine country. The best of all worlds! No wonder Tiburon is some of the most desirable real estate in the U.S.

What makes this house unique

Most vacation rental properties don't provide much in the kitchen, not even salt and pepper, cooking oil, sugar, spices, coffee, tea, rice, pasta, etc. We provide all of these things and more, condiments, sauces, as well as a fully equipped kitchen that has every tool and appliance that a gourmet chef would desire. The cookware isn't cheap stuff, but top of the line cutlery and All-Clad cookware. Even if all you cook is the occasional breakfast, you will be pleasantly surprised how well equipped and stocked the kitchen is.

Amazing view of Angel Island, nice house, and a hilly but reasonable walk to town

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and were inspired by the incredible view to take the ferry to Angel Island, which was well worth it. We walked into town for brunch and dinner but chose to Uber back rather than hike the hills.

Thanks for a great, relaxing stay!

Spectacular Home with a Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this property in Tiburon. The home is well maintained, clean and well stocked. The owner pays close attention to detail. The views from the home are stunning as it is located uphill in Tiburon. Great access (about 4 miles) to the 101 so you can get to San Francisco pretty easily from this location. Our only regret is that we didn't spend enough in the home as we spent a lot of time sightseeing in San Francisco.

Next time I bring my family of five out to the Bay Area, I will certainly be staying here again. On top of the many great qualities of the property, this was also a great value relative to staying in a cramped hotel room in the city.

This was certainly a five-star experience. Thanks, Bruce, for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I don't write a lot of responses to reviews, since I try to let the reviews speak for themselves. But it is always heartwarming to hear and read about how delighted our guests have been with our house.

Great memories

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Everything you could want and more. Great views of Angel Island and San Francisco. Easy walk to the ferry but parking is easy if you prefer. All in all a great place for us to end our California road trip.

Minutes from San Francisco by ferry or by car, and in the sun-belt: This part of Tiburon has sunny afternoons while San Francisco and Sausalito are covered in fog. Also a short drive to California's Wine Country: Napa and Sonoma valleys. Close to Muir Woods National Monument, and the beautiful beaches: Rodeo Beach, Muir Beach, Stinson Beach. Majestic Mount Tamalpais, with its breathtaking views of the entire San Francisco Bay Area, is a short drive away. The idyllic Town of Tiburon is a tourist destination in itself: quaint shops and chic restaurants along the historic waterfront and Ark Row. The ferry from Tiburon to San Francisco, Fisherman's Wharf, and Angel Island are all a short walk away.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Boating, Sailboat Racing, Wine Tasting, Theatre
