Totally remodeled Classic Sausalito Bungalow with 3 bedroom, 3 baths
About Lee Bookman
We live and work in Santa Cruz, California, approximately 90 miles south of Sausalito. The house in Sausalito is our home away from home, our weekend getaway. We use the home ourselves almost as much as we offer it to guests.
Lee Bookman purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Lee Bookman chose Sausalito
We were looking for a getaway location somewhere around San Francisco. We looked at condos and apartments in the City itself, but decided that Marin County, across the Golden Gate Bridge, was close enough, was a lot quieter and had better weather. We chose Sausalito because it is an older, well-established town with true community spirit among the locals, and because it reminds us a lot of Portifino, Italy.
What makes this Cottage unique
The weather in Sausalito is just fantastic! It can be cold, gray, wet and foggy in San Francisco, even at the Bridge, but in Sausalito the sun will be shinning, the sky will be blue, and the temperature about 5-10 degrees warmer. Sausalito is also the gateway to all things North....Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Anderson Valley, Mendocino, Muir Woods Redwoods, The Marin Headlands, Stinson Beach, San Rafael, Santa Rosa and so much more. Just an ideal Northern California location, and yet, only minutes from downtown San Francisco.

Charming Sausalito Cottage
I highly recommend the Bookman's Sausalito cottage. It is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The location puts you within a 5 minute walk to Caldonia Street and numerous restaurants and in ten minutes you are to the heart of the tourist area on Bridgeway. I appreciated the quality coffee mugs, the full size sofa which is great for napping, and the plush bath towels. The view of Richardson Bay makes this a special place.
Cannot believe what all we got for the "outstanding" rate - incredible location, extremely clean, stunning water views, beautifully decorated and well appointed interior, fast internet, great tv, awesome outside water view deck, and convenient parking. Owner is wonderful - very responsive. This fantastic home has it all! Would highly recommend. We will definitely return!
Thank you, Kim and David;
We look forward to your future visit to our little bit of heaven. You will always be welcome there. As you discovered, the house is not just a home away from home; in many ways it's better than home. Cheers!
This was perfect for our family of 5, with kids. The house had everything we needed and the owners thought of everything. This is the first time we have stayed in Sausalito and it was a perfect location, close enough to SF but without the hustle and bustle, as well as close to Muir Woods and Napa. The house was a perfect size for what we needed, was in great shape and you can't beat the view. We would definitely stay here again!
Thanks for very quick return of security deposit. Thanks also for renting your wonderful house in Sausalito. We had a great vacation thanks to your wonderful house and view. We have rented a lot of places around the world ( Mainly Europe) and this is one of the finest. The amenities and equipment were superb. It really felt like being around the Mediterranean but with San Francisco within a 20 minute drive. We enjoyed some of your restaurant recommendations in Sausalito and Napa Valley . The one week was not quite enough and so we hope to return some day. Thanks again. David H and family. Raleigh N.C.
A Very Nice Base for a Bay Exploration
The house is very humble from the outside but is very spacious and comfortable on the inside. It was clean and well maintained. The on-street parking was a bit of a problem since a neighbor who owns an electric BMW apparently has appropriated the space in front of the house and we either had to park in from or behind it which was tricky at times. But that is no fault of the owner of the house.
Thank you, John
So glad you and your family enjoyed yourselves at the house. Sorry about the pesky BMW parked in front. Have never seen that car before, nor since. Must have been a temporary visitor to the neighborhood.
A second great stay
We were back at this lovely house for the second successive year and it certainly didn't disappoint. It's a great place to stay when visiting both San Francisco - using the ferry - and the numerous lovely spots in Marin and further north. The deck was certainly a clincher for us and for all-round comfort, quality and value it's hard to believe that there is any other rental property in the area to beat this. Lee is a great and responsive owner and was a joy to deal with. Highly recommended.
