I am the founder of the lifestyle brand Maison reve (means dream home in french). My mother is suisse french and i grew up in Montreal. As a child, we were raised to enjoy simple living and now my passion is to inspire others to slow the pace of our busy lives down so we fully enjoy the moment of everyday life. My business has been featured in several national magazines showcasing our signature urban farmhouse design style that you will experience at the carriage house. I live with my Australian born husband (from Sydney) and our two children in our 1893 Victorian home that we fully restored a few years ago.
Yasmine McGrane purchased this house in 2004
Our main home and this seperate detached 1910 historic carriage house in the back garden of property are completely magical. I knew they were special the minute I first walked inside. They are one of the oldest houses in the whole Bay area, main house was built in 1893 by a shipyard captain with the carriage house in 1910. We spent 2 years fully restoring both places and the gardens. We feel very blessed to live in such a wonderful place and raise our young children here. It's not just the spectacular view and all the places to explore, it's the birds that visit the garden each morning, the lovely trees and just the energy of this place is serene. When my husband and I stand on our front porch at night and watch the moon and stars above catching the shimmering light on the Bay it still takes our breath away every time.
The views inspire you to feel grateful for everything in life. The location inspires you to walk to the downtown, take a ferry and explore San Francisco, Napa or Sonoma wine country, the redwood trees in Muir Woods, the lovely California beaches or skiing in Lake Tahoe. The property is a magical retreat in the heart of everything you want to experience. We feel enormously grateful to be able to share this with others from all around the world.
We had a wonderful experience staying at the Carriage House. A quiet and relaxing environment. Short walk down the hill to beautiful Sausalito with breath taking views. Easy parking and convenient to so many fun & beautiful places to visit.
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of my 30th birthday get-away. It was a fabulous trip overall, but Yasmine's relaxing cottage and hospitality made it even better. She was very thorough in providing recommendations on things to do in the area. She even welcomed us with a treat and coffee grounds from a local shop on the kitchen table when we arrived. It was such a joy to wake up each morning and spend time preparing our breakfast and sipping delicious coffee while lounging about the cottage -- my favorite way to start the day! Also - the furniture was super cozy!!! I'd love to have such a comfy couch and oversized chair in my home! All was fantastic; and if I had to tweak anything it would be the bed, which was quite squeaky, so it did wake me up a few times when I rolled over at night.
Would still highly recommend Yasmine's cottage!!
We rented this property for our 11th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed with what the photos exhibited on the site. Yasmine has decorated the cottage with a very cozy feel. We felt right at home. It was so interesting to learn more about the property from the owners themselves. The location was perfect. We could walk to downtown Sausalito past an amazing view of San Francisco and the sailboats on the bay. I would stay here in a heartbeat.
What a gem! The property is so quaint and intimate. The owner has taken time cultivating such a peaceful & beautiful environment! I would rent this place over & over again. The location is walking distance to the water, ferry and downtown Sausalito. Thank you for sharing your special home with us!
My wife and I stayed here for a few days when we were in town for the Super Bowl and were thoroughly impressed. What a great find!
Great location just across the Golden Gate Bridge from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco with great views of the city and the bay. It was the perfect escape from all of the crowds and noise associated with the buildup to "the big game." Just a 15-20 minute Uber ride to and from the center of town.
Also, within walking distance of great shops and restaurants.
Wine country is just an hour up the road.
Yasmine and family were great hosts.
I would've given the place 5 stars but it may be a bit on the rustic side for some travelers (hope you understand Yasmine.) It was perfect for us though!
Hopefully we'll be able to come back soon!
An incredibly charming cottage, like something you would see in a magazine. Decorated with care. Very peaceful and spacious. It feels very cozy, and clean. Easily the cutest house I have had the pleasure of staying in. It's just lovely.
Imagine walking through a white picket fence, passing organic vegetables and smelling the scent of lemon thyme as you travel the winding path to your front door. Take a leisurely stroll up secret staircases between beautiful Victorian homes in old town sausalito at the end of the day. Awake to blue jays chirping as you meditate in your airy upper bedroom. Clip fresh mint from your porch garden and sip in a vintage tea cup while watching the sun rise each morning. Walk to a local yoga class on a saturday morning just 10 minute from home. Enjoy a fresh baked croissant at local coffee shops while people watching. Lay in bed as you listen to the mystical fog horns on a quintessential San Francisco evening while immersed in a good book. Walk to the ferry terminal just 10 minutes walk away passing fishing boats and rowers out on the bay before taking a ferry into san francisco for site seeing, Visting Alcatraz or perhaps exploring the San Francisco ferry building. Bike on a sunday morning to sausalito’s farmers market and take cooking classes at one of many local cooking schools. Treat yourself to a spa day at great spas like Cavallo point just 5 minutes away. Share a moment with a friend or family member and glass of wine watching the sunset and sailboats drifting by without leaving your front porch. Relax into the person you were born to be.
