About Yasmine McGrane

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

Why Yasmine McGrane chose The Bay Area

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Sweet little place

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling place to unwind. It's quiet and private, and you'll sleep like a baby in the airy attic bedroom. I loved the crisp white bedding and bathrobes!

Being able to walk everywhere in Sausalito was a huge bonus. Cute, cute!

A Sweet European Gem of Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Beyond comfortable! Yasmine has created a setting that offers ease and nourishment to the mind and body. We loved returning in the evening to the comfortable sofa and overstuffed chairs to read and wind down before making our way upstairs to a beautifully made bed. We loved the garden setting and sipping coffee in the morning looking out over a view of Richardson Bay to the east. Yasmine is a beautiful, gracious host who left us a morning welcome basket of freshly ground coffee, French pastries and BiscottI, all from her and our favorite bakery in town, Cibo's! I look forward to being Yasmine's guest hopefully many times in the future!

Serenity with a view

  • 5 of 5

We use VRBO quite a bit and this property falls into our top five easily. Every detail is covered, no expense is spared, and the owners are so incredibly welcoming. We felt so relaxed and at home during our stay that it was hard to leave! It's rustic, but in the way you'd expect in staying in a 1910 carriage house. Delightful, comfortable (just use the open windows and fan provided to cool down the upstairs). We loved having coffee each morning with the electric fireplace running - so cozy. I can't rave about this place enough. Can't wait to go back! Thank you, David, Yasmine, Delphine and Finnegan!

Quaint, cosy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Really quaint and cosy house with lovely views to the bay. Plenty of room for four. Yasmine is really helpful and friendly. You need to bring wooly socks or slippers to wear around the house as it can get chilly in the evenings on wooden floors. Easy parking and the walk to Sausalito is a lovely stroll along the waterfront. Oven didn't work which was a bit of a pain but Yasmine kindly cooked the pizza for us in her house. Internet works well.

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.
