Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Tiburon - Villa Golden Gate of Tiburon

Villa, 2 Bedroom Suites, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-5) in Tiburon

No hotel or resort can offer the privacy, stunning views or luxurious amenities of our Golden Gate Villa. Located on the beautiful Tiburon Peninsula, in close proximity to everything San Francisco has to offer. No other villa rental can compare.

Who knew a San Francisco villa rental could be like this? Located on a quarter-acre estate; our luxury villa is a private, rejuvenating, 3,000 sq.ft. space. With its beautifully manicured gardens and quality designer furnishings, it's the perfect place to take a breath, relax and recover; choose a different activity every day or to entertain.

If you want to explore, there are endless things to see and do. Dynamic and historic San Francisco is only a 15 minute ferry ride away. You're within easy reach of many different attractions including world-class golf at Pebble Beach, tours of famous Alcatraz Island or Hearst Castle and tickets to Giants' baseball games.

The San Francisco Bay is perfect for boating or sailing, and there are many wonderful beaches to explore.

Our luxury villa is located at the water's edge, over-looking historic Tiburon, with its many restaurants, cafes, shopping and the popular 'Friday nights on Main Street'.

Villa Golden Gate features dramatic, open architecture and soaring 16-foot ceilings. We have a library of over 300 books for you to enjoy, and throughout the home are special treasures, such as an original Louis XVI mirror, Kandinsky lithographs and an exclusive 1922 Capiello poster.

The living room's giant picture window affords an unobstructed, 250 degree view, including San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Mt. Tamalpais. With its 5 foot tall limestone fireplace and lovely handmade Stark leopard carpet, there are also three luxurious white sofas, two of which fold out into comfortable queen and twin beds. Hidden in the fireside cabinetry is a large flat screen TV with satellite service and DVD player along with children and adult toys.

The dining room, with its hand-crafted Ruhlmann buffet and hand-painted Nancy Corzine table, is adorned with a 350-year old pair of Louis XV, bronze dore' candelabra. The silver is Christofle and the linens are luxurious Irish and Italian. French double doors open to a large, wrap-a-round balcony, and the large picture and mitered corner windows provide reach-out-and-touch views of The Golden Gate Bridge and The San Francisco skyline.

Everyone's favorite room, the kitchen, features imported French lighting, an Italian marble island, Gaggenau appliances and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. Another French door leads out to the balcony, with its new DCS BBQ and imported Italian wood burning pizza oven. Our concierge can provide you with a personal chef for all or part of your stay. We will stock the refrigerator as you require. The kitchen's view is of The City and Bridge as well.

The Hermitage office is the perfect place to take care of any business affairs. The 2nd Kandinsky hangs here, over a special antique marble fireplace mantle, filled with fossils. Telephone, fax, printer, WiFi, iPad, iPod, B & O speakers for all iProducts and a MacBook Pro laptop are available for your use. You will find all books here, specifically on California. There are also file cabinets organized with all the information you may need to run the villa, and every office supply. An ADS music system controls built-in speakers throughout the house from here, and your view is of The City skyline.

And, saving the best for last, the sumptuous master suite; from where you have a stunning view of Mt. Tamalpais, known as the Sleeping Lady by the local Miwok indians, as well as of the Golden Gate. This all-white room is adorned with beautiful Italian lighting, new shag carpeting, a king sized Duxiana bed, flat screen TV, and French doors opening to your private patio, where a new McGuire chaise lounge for two awaits. The owner's collection of 12 vintage photographs hang here, as well as the 3rd Kandinsky.

Every detail in the master suite is designed for two. All maple walk-in closets with a delightful Louis XV mirror, and hidden 'pocket' doors for your privacy. This is where you will find your El Safe, for the security of your personal belongings.

And next is the all Beaumaniere French marble, master bathroom; with a 2 person shower, vanity table, double vanity sinks and a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath tub, of course, for two. And a beautiful view, as with every room.

Because the villa was designed by the owner, great attention was made to every detail. Next to your maple closets is where the spacious laundry room is located, with another French door leading to a special private patio with table and chairs over-looking an antique fountain.

Finally, our large, private Junior Suite, with lovely shower, desk, easy chair, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee maker and private shade garden with seating and marble table.

About Sandra Stevens

I Worked in the Hotel industry AND on Rodeo Drive, where I learned the art of catering to a person's or guests' every need. This, coupled with my extensive, First Class travel experiences taught me all the luxurious appointments First Class traveler's expect.

Sandra Stevens purchased this villa in 1999

Why Sandra Stevens chose Tiburon

I was 'smitten' by Belvedere, on my first visit here in 1984, and haven't regretted one minute of this love affair. I had the great fortune and ability to design and build Villa Golden Gate, which was then named by 2 Roman guests, telling me: 'They don't even build villas this beautiful in Rome any longer!'

What makes this villa unique

Villa Golden Gate is located directly above downtown Tiburon and only 15 minutes to San Francisco, by ferry. The villa's Concierge has lived here 30 years and can make almost anything happen, making your stay enjoyable, in every way.

Felt like a film star

  • 5 out of 5
A superb experience.

We are property owners ourselves and have rented privately several times. This property is AMAZING. The pictures don't do it justice. Sandra, the owner is so generous, we couldn't believe how many "extras" there were and the high spec finishes throughout made it truly special.

And then there are the views. And I mean views, not view. The villa has been designed and built to take advantage of both incredible views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge to the south and west, as well as delightful views over Tiburon harbour and north to Mount Tamalpais. This was definitely a place that was difficult to drag ourselves away from - even though the great ferry service to San Francisco was an short ride through the winding streets.

Tiburon is a delightful little town too, with a nice selection of restaurants etc. Plan to spend a bit of time here.

But plan to spend time at Via Golden Gate too - why leave when you have a truly luxurious and spectacular villa with those views? Can't recommend it highly enough.

We'd love to return.

Thanks for everything Sandra!

Luxurious accommodations + gorgeous views!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I try to vacation in the San Francisco area every fall and this year we added this wonderful house to our itinerary. Boy, are we glad we did! Other reviewers have said it already, but it is impossible to describe how spectacular the views are. And the house is quite luxurious. Loved the kitchen and patios - all with great views. Overall it's a treat that we are sure to repeat next year. If you get the chance, do stay here, you will not regret it. The owner is very responsive and makes sure you are well taken care of. You will not want to leave the house, but Tiburon is a wonderful little town, and SF is just a scenic ferry ride away (the ferry is half the fun!). Our highest praise is that we will be coming back!

Spectacular view, clean and full of amenities

  • 5 out of 5
The house and the breathtaking view are 100% as pictured. I stayed with 5 other friends and we enjoyed the house tremendously. The house is immaculately clean and is fully equipped with amenities from kitchen essentials to beddings. We will definitely come back for another reunion. Sandra is easy to work with and responsive to all my inquiries.

Foremost, and as stated in other reviews, the views are incredible (better in person than in the pictures). My wife and I loved having tea and coffee in mornings while watching the town of Tiburon slowly come to life, and as people made their way to catch the ferry to SF. We were also taken aback by the every changing views of SF, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Sausalito & western edge of Marin County - from bright sun shining days and nights, to periods of partial fog or clouds slowly engulfing the horizon. The views are aided by the abundance of windows in the villa, which brings the outdoors in and also makes the villa feel quite large, We did take advantage of the guest suite when a friend came to visit which worked out wonderfully.

The villa is well supplied with cooking, serving and entertaining items, as well as a large amount of available linens and towels (which came in handy during our 10 day stay). Access to villa was quite convenient and secure - through an automatic gate with garage parking. We always had a sense of privacy and felt at ease, and seldom locked the doors.

Finally, the location is perfect for getting around the bay area. The ferry makes getting into SF a breeze and most sites on the North side of the bay are just a few highway exits away. And if you don't feel like venturing out, head into Tiburon which has a few great restaurants and just the right number of shops to stroll around in.

It was a perfect 10 days!

Lucky enough to stay here for 7 nights. We have stayed at many very good boutique hotels in and around San Francisco over the years and this, without question, beats them all. This does not feel like a rental house, its is a home with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. Quality of furniture, fittings and equipment is very high. Really does feel like a home from home. And the view from the terrace is breathtaking. A number of our friends, all long time bay residents, joined us for drinks and all commented that this was the best view of Golden Gate they had seen. Sandra has created the perfect home in an outstanding location. We will be back at the first opportunity. Fantastic vacation!
