The Bay Area House Rental Photos and Description

Studio Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

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...

Napa Valley and Sonoma is an hour away!


Check In Time - No earlier than 3:00 PM

Check Out Time - No later than 11:00 AM

Special arrangements can be made subject to availability and prior agreement.

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 Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First, I would like to say that Kristiana and Richard are great hosts. The directions from the airport are so easy to 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!!

Wonderful Studio overlooking the bay, Sausalito, SF skyline, Bay Bridge and Alcatraz

  • 4 of 5

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 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.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Clean, cozy and stunning view

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful home with breathtaking views of the Bay area!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest homes we've ever seen with spectacular views of SF Bay, Alcatraz, downtown SF and the Bay Bridge. I have never rented anywhere where the photos in the ad actually do not do it justice. Usually, it seems the photos are taken in a manner that exaggerates the property and/or its views. Not here! As we approached the front gate, we knew it was going to be nice, but we had no idea how beautiful it was until we made our way down to our private balcony! We immediately fell in love with it and talked of returning some day--within 5 minutes of arriving. The place is completely spotless and met all of our needs and Krystiana and Richard are excellent hosts. We can stop talking about it and showing our pics to our friends since we arrived home!

Great Studio apartment. We had beautiful weather while we stayed which made for a great view of the bay but a warm room. The

evenings cooled down though and the bed was comfy
