Stunning Panoramic San Francisco Bay Views from This Tiburon Belvedere Villa

Bedrooms 2
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

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. Walking distance to the Tiburon Ferry that can take you directly to Pier 39.

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. There is a 60 inch TV which rises silently from a hidden cabinet with the push of a button.

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 a short walk away, 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.

Spectacular view of Angel Island and San Francisco Bay!

  • 4 of 5

This home is tucked away on the hillside of Tiburon overlooking Angel Island. Favorite moments included sunset dinner in the deck, amazing views of the fog and ships coming in and going out the bay, and the distant foghorn sounds of Point Bonita Light house. Truly amazing views!!

Our family of four loved the property. The views in person were simply amazing. Opening the front door and seeing the bay and city views took our breath away. It was an easy walk to Tiburon for dinner and breakfast. The property was very clean and the owners went out of their way to detail the house and provide excellent dinner and walking/hiking options. I would highly recommend this property if you are looking to forget your day to day stress with many activities and shopping close by. It exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you for sharing your home.

About Owner

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

Owner purchased this house in 1980

Why Owner chose Tiburon

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow - what a gorgeous home and how we enjoyed our stay - thanks. We will return.
