A tranquil sanctuary with unbelievable, unobstructed views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, and the Bay. Extremely and meticulously clean, fully updated studio bedroom apartment attached to the main house. Located in the hills of Sausalito and part of a multi-million dollar home with priceless views. Separate and private entrance with large balcony. Quiet area of Sausalito and close to everything.
Walk down the hill to downtown Sausalito and enjoy the restaurants, stores, the Sausalito Ferry terminal (service to San Francisco / The Embarcadero / Fisherman's Wharf) and public transportation.
Take the Ferry across the Bay, rent a bicycle and ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, stop by Cavallo Point and come back to Sausalito. Or explore Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) 10 minutes hike with access to so many bike trails.
Drive less than 3 minutes to Highway 101 and Golden Gate Bridge. Rodeo Beach is just 10 minutes away. Or venture to Point Reyes and Stintson Beach (15 miles)! Muir Woods is 9 miles away and there is a shuttle in downtown Sausalito...

Parking - We are located on a quiet residential street in the hills of Sausalito, which give us the fantastic views of the bay. Typically, there is street parking right in front of the house. Otherwise, there will be street parking within 1-2 houses in either direction. There are no meters.
If you are familiar with Sausalito, the winding roads and homes in the hills give the reputation of being "Mediterranean"-like and very charming. There are roads that are tight where one car can pass at a time. But normal truck and garbage trucks are able to drive on the streets. This is charming Sausalito; not the concrete jungles of a large city. So if you are looking for structured parking with meters and wide streets with curbs, there are places in downtown Sausalito or in San Francisco. If you are looking to experience the "Mediterranean"-like feel of real Sausalito and want fantastic views of the Bay, then our place is where you want to stay.
***IMPORTANT - All bookings must be finalized 72 hours in advance of arrival so please do not make any last minute bookings as they will not be honored.
Beautiful, secluded property with view of SF skyline, bay, and Alcatraz. Quiet & cozy with comfortable bed and linens. Owners were very accommodating and friendly.
My sister and I just returned from a weekend stay at Urban Oasis, and are already planning our next trip back. The studio is small but immaculate, and part of a larger house in the Hurricane Gulch section of Sausalito (not sure if they still call it that, but believe me the name is appropriate!). We happened to arrive just in time for three days of fog and wind coming off the Pacific, which is just over the large ridge above the neighborhood itself. Consequently, the views mentioned in the description of the property, and in previous reviews, were completely obscured. Having said that, sleeping, curling up with a good book, or watching a movie in a fog-shrouded space is a uniquely California experience and we appreciated the opportunity to hunker down, drink some wine, and enjoy a long-overdue sister visit. I should mention that Richard, one of the owners, assured us that the weather is not like this all the time and I would definitely keep that in mind, in addition to reading the many reviews on this site, where the view from the deck is described in detail.
The house is a short drive from restaurants, shops, etc., and the stunning views of San Francisco that Sausalito is famous for. Poggio is fantastic, as is Farley's bar at Cavallo Point, a lovely lodge and restaurant located just under the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. At the other end of town is a grocery store (Mollie Stone's) where you can buy anything you'll need during your stay, including prepared food, wine, etc. One night we had a simple dinner of local cheeses, salumi, fruit, and sourdough bread. Simple, but perfect. Note: while you can't cook in the unit, there is a microwave and a refrigerator large enough to store plenty of food.
While we decided to stay in because we already know the area, Sausalito is a short drive from Muir woods, the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and San Francisco itself. I can't imagine a better place to come back to after a long day of sight-seeing. We had no problem at all with street parking, and Krystiana and Richard's directions are quite easy to follow. I should mention that this is a very hilly city, and most of the houses, including this one, require stairs to access the property. I have a tendency to overpack, and this stay may have cured me of that habit!
Can't wait to go back. Highly recommended.
First, I would like to say that Kristiana and Richard are great hosts. The directions from the airport are so easy to follow...pictures of signs are included in the directions. The step by step instructions to access the studio apartment are all you need to find the apartment, park, and make your way into the home. Once inside there is a book that describes the lights, the heat, the television and remotes. All questions are answered before you even need to ask! The apartment has everything you need for your stay. Some of the most beautiful pictures of our trip were taken right from the balcony. We loved sitting out there in the evenings enjoying a glass of wine and the view....amazing!! The bed is very comfortable and we left the shades up at night so we could enjoy the lights of San Francisco all night! The apartment is very private and quiet. We did not hear noise from the neighbors or even the hosts. We felt like we were in a single house. Sausalito is a beautiful, quaint little town. We enjoyed driving down in the evenings and walking around the waterfront. There is a nice little park with benches so you can watch the sailboats come in. We went to the Golden Gate Bridge many times. Vista Point is an exit before Sausalito so you can pull in on your way home and get great pictures. We also enjoyed Muir Woods, Point Reyes National Seashore, Stinson Beach, Alcatraz(book early - before your trip), a city tour (Tower Tours), Lands End, ChinaTown, Union Square (eat breakfast at Sear's Fine Dining), Napa, St. Helena(Sattui Winery), Calistoga(Sterling Winery-our favorite), a Giants game, riding the cable cars, and Fisherman's Wharf, among many other things. This was the BEST trip and staying at Kristiana and Richard's apartment made everything perfect. You will love it!!
As a 40th wedding anniversary, we spent a month in Sausalito, here at this quaint studio apartment. What a piece of heaven. From our balcony we can see the landscape of Sausalito that appears strikingly similar to the coast of Italy. Beyond we can see the San Francisco skyline, the Bay Bridge that lights up at night, and Alcatraz—a great sight to wake up to every morning. Photos don't do this view justice.
We frequently shopped and ate in downtown Sausalito. Walt Disney couldn’t have created a more inviting downtown experience. We sampled at Trident, Poggio, Napa Burger Company, and Seafood Peddler, as well as the occasional ice cream and coffee/cappuccino/mocha shop.
From this apartment we traveled to San Francisco most every day. There we saw the Presidio, Lombard Street (crookest street in SF), Twin Peaks to see all of the city by the bay, Fisherman’s Wharf, Vista Point, and the Painted Ladies of Alamo Park. We attended several sfcityguides.com tours—North Beach, SF City Hall, Presidio, and Alfred Hitchcock’s SF. Great introductions to SF and they were free.
We also traveled to wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Healdsburg, and elsewhere. Happy Hour at Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa was our very favorite. We enjoyed sightseeing the spectacular sights in the Muir Headlands, Muir Woods, Rodeo Beach and Stinson Beach. We also shopped at downtown Tiburon and another day in Berkeley. We even traveled to Palo Alto to see Stanford and then to Mountain View to see the headquarters of Google.
Still, our favorite view was from the balcony overlooking the bay, the Bay Bridge, SF skyline and Sausalito.
Downside: can’t use a stove to cook. Bringing outside cooking mechanisms was not allowed. Only can use a their microwave. Consequently, this studio is best suited for shorter stays such as weekend getaways or a week-long stay.But we adapted and made it work for four weeks! May be back again!
Thank you for your gracious hospitality Richard and Krystiana.

The booking was easy and the property is better than any of the pictures. It is a beautiful beautiful view in a very romantic town that is close to some of the most beautiful natural jewels you'll ever see. The apartment is just perfect and was a great Valentine's gift for my Girlfriend. We'll be back many times if possible. Thanks, Richard and Krystiana!
The studio is lovely, well-maintained and very clean, guest house with simple but nice decor. The view is truly amazing of San Francisco, Alcatraz and the mountains. We watched the sun rise over the mountains every morning. There is a big picture window that overlooks the same view as the deck, and you can sit at the table or even on the bed an see the view. The deck had warm sunshine during the day (we stayed in December so it was really great) and there was central heat for the evening when it was cooler. A real vacation spot, tranquil and comfortable.
