Beautiful family home in Tiburon, quick ferry ride to San Francisco

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Comfortable single family home in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Remodeled just a few years ago- wood details throughout, and beautiful kitchen with granite counters and gas stove. Many windows look out on private back patio with hot tub. Sky lights let in more light. Trees surround our home, and behind us is a beautiful hillside, making our patio feel secluded and embraced by nature. We have a total of 4 bedrooms (one is with a loft bed, and one is with a set of bunk beds). There is also an office with space for sleeping on the floor. We can set up an air mattress in the office if you wish. The office and two bedrooms have blackout shades. The loft has a very comfortable queen bed (a ladder must be climbed to reach the loft). Master bath has a rainshower shower head, and pebble floor. The forth bedroom has a single bed. The entire home has hydronic radiant heat floors, so your feet are cozy whenever the heat is on- especially in the master bathroom. A gas fireplace creates more coziness in the family room. In summer, we keep the house cool by opening up the windows at night (there is no air conditioning).

We live in a quiet, friendly, family neighborhood a stone's throw from San Francisco. In 20 minutes you can drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. You can take one of the many ferries to get there. If you prefer more natural pleasures, Mount Tam is very close, where you'll find world class mountain biking, or scenic hiking. Muir Woods is a 30 minute drive. The ocean is accessible at several beaches approximately 20-25 minutes away. The surfing us often quite good. In a nice 1 hour walk/hike from our house, you can ascend the ridge above our neighborhood and have a 360 degree view of the area, including much of the bay, the Golden Gate bridge, and the nearby islands. Historic and scenic downtown Tiburon is 4 miles away. We are in an ideal location to explore the beaches, all the towns in Marin, the wine country, and San Francisco as well as Berkeley sights.

Why The Owner chose The Bay Area

It's very close to San Francisco, and all the rich cultural opportunities there. Natural beauty is also very accessible due to proximity of Mt Tamalpais, San Francisco Bay and the ocean. Despite all this accessablity, it is quiet and private.

What makes this house unique

A 1 hour walk takes you to a beautiful ridge overlooking the entire San Francisco Bay Area. Oh, and the best bakery in the area is a short walk away.

Perfect! Inviting and comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This Tiburon house is very much a comfortable home with nice amenities and it has a great host/manager in Rachael. Everything is as described and the instruction book at the house was perfect - clear and concise. The living space in the home is very comfortable and quiet. The renovated kitchen made cooking for our family easy and enjoyable. We often ate in the open patio area in the sunshine listening to nature. The home was ideal for our kids, 2 teenagers and 2 toddlers. We never used the TV but the entertainment system seemed to be high quality. We used WiFi throughout our time there and it was easy to connect to at high speeds. Rachael was very professional and responsive to all of our questions. The bedrooms were all very comfortable. The sleeping loft is up a ladder and we expected our teenagers to fight over this space but it is a small space (for younger children) so the oldest decided to sleep on the queen inflatable. It is a high-quality inflatable that is the height of a regular bed. Our oldest teen said it was very comfortable and chose it over the other twin bed option. Our younger teen did enjoy the loft bed. We are very glad to have found this home and it made for the perfect vacation rental for our family! We hope the home is available the next time we return and we will certainly recommend it to family and friends .

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

This Tiburon home is in a quiet neighborhood, central to many vacation opportunities. The interior is nicely decorated, the floor plan is functional and the outdoor spaces are private and peaceful. The owner was very professional and accommodating and my family and I truly enjoyed our 8 nights at this home while we explored the region by day.

I was somewhat confused by the bed sizes and sleeping arrangements from the description provided. There is a beautiful master bedroom with queen bed and master bath, a room with a bunk bed and a nice room with a single bed. The loft can be accessed via a ladder on the wall and getting in and out was challenging for us so we did not use it. If we had been traveling with more than 5 sleeping options would have been tight.

All and all, the owner was wonderful to work with and communicated very effectively. We appreciated the bottle of wine that waited for us upon our arrival and the house is a great vacation option. We recommend this home.

Perfect for Multi-generations

  • 4 of 5

Extremely comfortable, clean, well laid out home on a quiet Tiburon street in neighborhood of older but immaculately kept homes.

Had my 80 year old mother-in-law, 2 adults in 50's and 2 grown children in 20's. Everyone had a comfortable, cozy room. House had all amenities you could ask for, state-of-the art kitchen and entertainment system. Hot tub in the private backyard nice plus. There are no bay views but located close to shopping, ferry and freeways. Excellent communication with owners, very accommodating.

what a great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is spacious, zen like, awesome location, good for kids and the owners were great to work with. I was traveling with a group of 5 colleagues and there was space for us each to have our own rooms. We enjoyed the private backyard with a hot tub. It was a great setting to relax at the end of a long day. The kitchen is really nice and had everything we needed. And we appreciated the details of fresh flowers and a very clean space. This was a great house to for the week!
