The view and location! You can walk to the water and to town, and drive to San Francisco or the ocean in 10 minutes. Our weather is also beautiful, less wind and fog than in downtown Sausalito.
Lots of character and history at this property combined with a quite residential location, with easy access to so much nature and culture.
Location -location - location is the best way to describe our stay. Although we rented a car it sat for several days as we walked to restaurants, shops and the docks of Sausalito. I even ventured on several walks to the GG bridge. Public transportation provided our link into San Fransisco. As for our hosts, Cathy and her family were very gracious and still distant enough to allow for our privacy. The size and accommodations were ideal and the views were way beyond expectations. We look forward to a return visit.
If you are searching and comparing sites and locations for a relaxing, comfortable stay in Sausalito - your search is over. This quaint, well kept cottage will met all your needs in a home away from home. Really, put away your spread sheet and tear up your notes because the chore is over - pack your bags - lightly as most all essentials are waiting for you. Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops out door activities and shops are well within walking distance. The views of Richardson Bay are calming and a treat any time of the day. There is plenty of on street parking is available in this wonderful residential neighborhood. The owners have provided a drawer full of maps, restaurant menus and items of historic and entertaining interest. I would recommend getting a BayAreaFastrak for your vehicle. There are no "cash" toll booths on the Golden Gate Bridge (GGB) and it'll save you some time and money with the quick trips to San Francisco. There are plenty of trails (Sausalito - Mill Valley, for example) for unlimited biking and running in addition to a scenic route from Sausalito through Fort Baker and across the GGB or the Marin Headlands. Once you have enjoyed the peace and relaxing atmosphere of the cottage, you'll be back. We can speak from experience.
My husband and I spent the month of May in this adorable cottage. We loved drinking our coffee in the morning while looking out over the harbor. It was so convenient to all the local restaurants and shops. We could be in San Francisco in fifteen minutes which was great since we went in often to visit our children and grandchildren.We especially enjoyed the patio. We would have drinks while watching the sunset. The cottage was fully equipped for a very comfortable stay. Cathy and her husband were great hosts and took care of all our needs.We thoroughly enjoyed our month in Sausalito
I just spent a month in this adorable cottage overlooking the Sausalito harbor. It was perfect in every regard. I was the "urban retreat" I sorely needed. Great walks. Great views. Cozy. So quiet and peaceful. Slept soundly and deeply. Loved the attention to detail. Loved hearing the sea lions chatting in the morning. Parking was easy. Did not want not want to leave. Looking forward to coming back again. Thank you!
Spent a wonderful three weeks in this charming cottage enjoying the views of the bay and San Francisco....easy access to SF and easy walking to all the great restaurants and cafés in Sausalito....will return....Cathy and robin were very helpful...can't beat the sunsets.....
My husband and I stayed for a month in this sweet cottage overlooking the bay. It was an easy walk to many restaurants (Fred's for breakfast is a must) and the grocery. The cottage is nicely furnished and fully stocked for cooking and laundry and general day to day living. Sausalito was everything we had envisioned and more. One or two people will really enjoy staying here.
