About Allison Goodwin

Our parents purchased this 2-Villa property in 1978. Family members live in one villa and our guests enjoy our identical 'twin'. The photo above is a 20-30 minute hike up the hill above the rainbow tunnel - wonderful hiking the Marin Headlands right outside our door - that is if you can pull yourself away from our deck over the water.

Why Allison Goodwin chose The Bay Area

The property speaks for itself.

What makes this villa unique

Listening to occasional fog horns, seals barking and sea gulls, watching the full moon rise and sailboats race around buoys. Walking down along the waterfront through historic Sausalito for morning coffee or hopping on the ferry to San Francisco, this is a magical place to visit and live. Enjoy and Welcome!

Gorgeous views...great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just left this beautiful home after staying there 6 nights! Outside the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, but close enough to go back and forth. We drove to Napa and Sonoma for day trips and it was always so relaxing to come "home" and sit on the patio with a glass of wine. Waking up early and enjoying the sunrise with a cup of coffee was amazing. I have never slept better! You can actually see the bay from the bed:) The house had everything we could have possibly needed and Allison and Dana were a text away for any questions. Downtown Sausalito was walking distance if you don't mind some steep hills or great exercise, but parking is available if you choose to drive down.

Hope to return one day to do it all over again! Thanks so much Allison and Dana!

Best vacation home ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, plus our spouses, spent 7 days at this lovely home. Everything was perfect and views were breathtaking. We had such a grand time, that it was hard to go back home to Texas. The owners of the home were very kind and treated us like family. Sausalito is just across the bay from San Francisco, so it was easy breezy to travel back and forth. But, there is such a relaxed romantic atmosphere in Sausalito, that you may never want to venture over to SF. I highly recommend staying in this home.

Spectacular Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife, along with my son and his wife, spent 4 nights in this Sausalito home, and I can tell you ... book it now! It's a spectacular vacation spot with incredible views of San Francisco, the bay, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge and much more. From the bedrooms, the living room or the kitchen, the views are the best anywhere. And the balconies are perfect for morning or evening relaxing! The house is a short walk to downtown Sausalito, and the neighborhood is a cool, hillside (steep hills) area. Allison was great to work with ... and the house was just as promised! Awesome place all around.

Fantastic view and friendly owner from Nalini

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 days with our two grand daughters and their aunt who was visiting from Bali. The place is beyond expectations , spacious and clean and serene. We were in Amalfi coast in Italy this spring and I think the view from this home is as fantastic. We recommended to many friends from cold Michigan who have grand kids in the bay area. and we shall return again.

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed several nights here and loved it! The view is beautiful, the location is great (short, fun walk to the main street and easy drive to plenty of Marin County activities) and the place is spacious and clean. This is truly a home away from home. I chose to stay here based on the view, location, off-street parking and handicap accessiblity.
