Every room of this 3 bedroom home on San Francisco Bay has gorgeous views of the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, or restful patios. Crunch across the gravel driveway and enter a sunny sheltered area in back of the house, enclosed by a warm stone patio. Lush plantings invite you to come in the Dutch kitchen door, which is painted the color of favorite geraniums. Or, if you follow the stone path around to the front entry, you will come upon the spectacular San Francisco Bay views framed by gracefully branching trees. From the front windows you can watch the changes to the beautiful town of Sausalito and the Golden Gate Bridge across the water, as sailboats traverse the waterfront and the sun makes graceful changes all day.
The quaint village of Tiburon is a quick drive or a 20 minute stroll on the bayside bike path. From there, take the ferry to San Francisco (17 minutes) or Angel Island, or for a sunset cruise around the bay.
Visit the historic towns nearby to shop, play, or eat at famous restaurants, or just stay at Bella Vista all day to relax. Bella Vista is within a short drive to five great beaches (5-30 minutes), the Napa-Sonoma wine country (30 minutes), and the City, (15-20 minutes). Mill Valley, Sausalito, and 2 large shopping centers are about 10 minutes away. Mt. Tamalpais, the birthplace of the mountain bike, is next to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, about 20 minutes away.

Earl and Arthulene Linman built this house, Bella Vista, in 1950 and their daughter and son-in-law inherited it in 2007. We began renovation in 2008 and finished in 2009. Meredith grew up here and has always loved the house and the community. We think you will, too.
Meredith and Bill Rolfe purchased this house in 2007
The unique climate of the area around Bella Vista is warmer than San Francisco and Sausalito, but with views of the fog that may roll over the Sausalito hills to the bay. Year-round, the climate is more comfortable than most other Bay Area communities.
The views from Bella Vista are world-class. We come here to relax and we can leave our stresses behind. We love to hike on the hills behind the house and Mount Tam, and walk on the bike path in front of the house. We love to beachcomb on the shore across the street, go to the beach on Paradise Drive or Fort Chronkite, or go to the city for a faster pace. We love it here!
Our family spent a week at Bella Vista and I can only say that a week was just not enough! The house itself was so cozy, yet spacious enough for six adults. The house is incredibly well equipped with the things you need to cook meals, but also had a lovely library of magazines, books and other things like binoculars that came in handy during our week of enjoying the beautiful outdoors in Tiburon and its surrounding areas. We had several family members who were visiting from Europe. It was their very first time in CA and staying at the Bella Vista home was such a nice introduction to the area and made them feel really comfortable. The views of the Bay from the large floor to ceiling windows in the living room are breathtaking and it was wonderful to be able to walk right across the street to access the walking and biking trail that can take you straight into downtown Tiburon or Blackie's Pasture. Meredith and her family were great hosts- she was very responsive with any questions that we had and was easily reachable by email and text. Our family made some very lasting memories at Bella Vista and we can't wait to return!
We spent a wonderful week at this location. The views are spectacular, the home is well stocked and the owner is wonderful to deal with! Cannot say enough great things about our stay!
We stayed for the week of Christmas. The house was wonderfully decorated for the holiday upon our arrival. The home is beautiful! The kitchen was very well stocked with the needed items to cook a large holiday meal. The beds are all very comfortable. We really enjoyed the view of the bay, Sausalito, The Golden Gate Bridge and the coastal mountains and hills. Setting in front of the large windows or out on the deck enjoying a coffee or wine was amazing! We could not have asked to find a better house to relax and enjoy the holidays. We really look forward to our return visit.
We had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday vacation at this home. The home is well-stocked and very comfortable. It is located near numerous restaurants and things to do, and it has a great view of the SF Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. We look forward to our next stay there.
Such a beautiful home. It was comfortable and the views were remarkable! We have stayed in Tiburon many times since we have friends that live there so are very familar with the area. We needed a larger place since friends were joining us and it accomodated 4 of us very well. It would have easily accomodated 3 couples. We had such a wonderful stay and the owners were so easy to work with and communication was great. We will definitely book this house again next time we are in the area. Perfect mix of privacy and conveince to downtown!
A perfect house for the staff of our organization. Well-appointed, homey and comfortable. Meredith was a dream to communicate with and we appreciated the professionalism and graciousness. We will book this house again!
It's about a half-hour to the Napa-Sonoma wine and cheese country, there are lots of shopping areas nearby and touring by ferry to Angel Island and San Francisco, as well as Dinner Sunset tours.
