We live in a medium sized Apartment on the hill overlooking the beautiful Sausalito bay. Our living room + kitchen have huge windows that look out onto a nice deck for lounging and grilling. We have outdoor seating and a table for sharing a meal or glass of wine. Wake up to the beautiful views of Sausalito, Tiburon & Mount Tam.
We are a short walk to many great restaurants (sushi, thai, indian, italian), kayaking, cafes, yoga studio, health food store & downtown Sausalito. You can also use our Surfboards, bikes, kayaks, etc and will be a short ferry ride to San Francisco.
Our apartment is nicely furnished, and comes with a large flat-screen tv, cable, HBO, wireless internet, hair dryer, fireplace, yoga mats, etc, but is not swanky by all means. It is more of a beachy cottage apartment in a great relaxing location, but also with ability to explore beautiful San Francisco.
We have 1 full bathroom and a parking spot. Laundry facilities are located downstairs and are coin operated. We have a dog that lives here occasionally, but will not be here when you are here. Just to warn those that may be allergic.
We are listed as room to sleep only for 2 people, because we only have one Queen-sized bed. Our 2nd bedroom is used as an office, but could be used as a second bedroom if needed to sleep kids. We have an air mattress if needed.
Use of car could be included if needed for the right person.
Sausalito! Is located just 10 minutes north of San Francisco, just over the Golden Gate bridge. There is great public transportation, ferries, busses, etc to travel into San Francisco.
Although, we live just at the end of Caledonia Street, which is a short walk to many great restaurants, cafes, shops, markets, salons, etc. Our apartment building is relatively peaceful and quite, although you will here some of the usual apartment noises from neighboring units.
You can see the bay from our deck, and is a short walk down the hill to the marina. You can use our kayak, or rent from a place down the street and spend all afternoon kayaking down the coast towards the Golden Gate bridge.
Sausalito is located in Marin county, which has some of the most beautiful natural attractions: Mount Tam, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Fairfax, Headlands National Park, etc.
So there is plenty of great hiking, biking and outdoor activities.
However, we are only a short 10 minute drive to San Francisco's Marina district. And a short ferrry ride to the Pier 39 on the weekends, and the downtown Ferry Building on the weekdays.
Our apartment building mostly consists of young couples.
We are a young professional couple, both in the arts. I a wedding photographer, and my boyfriend a director of photography. We love outdoor activities and to travel. We are both very respectful and generous, and would care for your home as if it was our own.
We are looking for a simultaneous exchange; preferably for 5-10 days for further destinations, and weekends or shorter swaps for closer destinations (somoma, tahoe, santa cruz, yosemite etc.) Unfortunately we both own our own businesses, so we are not able to swap more than 14 days.
However, we do have one other option available for people looking to visit Santa Barbara as well. We have access to a wonderful 2nd home apartment/detached unit in a beautiful Santa Barbara home. Located in the prestigious Hope Ranch community. So, if wanted to travel down the coast of California, we would also be able to arrange for you to stay in Santa Barbara as well....
