What’s to Like About This Location: Everything! The location is hard to beat! Amazing views you can’t see anywhere else, with a 5-minute walk to town with nothing but incredible views the entire way. You can step out onto the deck with a glass of wine, and just enjoying the surroundings. From this home you can watch the hundreds of sailboats that race along Raccoon Strait almost every weekend, right in front of the house, and witmessthe giant tankers and container ships that motor through the Golden Gate every day. Angel Island has history dating back to the Civil War days, so take a historical tour of the Island, rent bikes or Segways, walk, or just catch a ride on the Island train. Muir Woods, the wine country, many beaches and other attractions are all only a very short drive or ferry ride away. There’s just too much to mention!
Restaurants in Town: Tiburon’s Main Street, an easy 5 minute walk, is picturesque and quaint, with excellent restaurants, including Servino’s (Italian) right on the waterfront, which has no-cover live music many evenings, Guaymas (excellent Mexican seafood), the famous Sam’s Anchor Café, (known worldwide), Waypoint Pizza, The Tiburon Grill (with happy hour pricing every afternoon/evening) and more. For breakfast or lunch, our favorite is a funky little local hangout called the New Morning Cafe, but all cafes serve the best food and coffee, so you can’t go wrong.
Other helpful ideas – Woodlands Market (groceries), a wonderful movie theater, drycleaners, an amazing library with two fireplaces and a wealth of information on our little town community called Tiburon and Belvedere.
Friday Nights in Tiburon: Friday nights are something really special in Tiburon. Between April and October, the Main Street is closed to traffic and there’s a big street party. The restaurants serve dinner al fresco, and there are two or more live bands! Also, on Friday nights, from 5:30 to 8:00 PM, check out the Friday Night Races at the Corinthian Yacht Club and San Francisco Yacht Club (April to September). You can watch the races from shore, or if you want to volunteer (no charge, no experience necessary), you can be a crew member on a race! If you’re interested in this, please ask the owner, he’ll fill you in on the details. If you are a sailing enthusiast, we definitely need to talk!

The neighborhood is on old Tiburon and across from Angel Island. It's called Lyford Hygeia, the Goddess of Health for its natural springs coming down the mountain. People come over from San Francisco to get out of the fog and into the sunshine. The neighborhood is very friendly and residential and right on the water.

Marin County is very compact and so attractions such as Muir Beach and Stinson Beach and Muir Woods are very close and Napa and Sonomo valleys for wine tasting are only 45 minutes away. There are buses that will pick you up and take you there.
