Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa, the historic 11-room Mansion located in northern California’s beautiful Sausalito epitomizes luxury, innovation, technology, service, and style while showcasing the dazzling views of Richardson Bay and the San Francisco skyline. It was built in 1885 and is now listed as a National Register of Historic Places.
We enjoyed dinner in the $10K a night Alexanderite Suite prepared by Executive Chef, Benjamin Balestri of Poggio, who said, “growing up, great food was important to my family, but it was really about people coming together.” We came together and enjoyed an incredible meal. Next up, I explored Sausalito like a true local, with a bike ride with the Sausalito Bike Company; I took in the landscape of the Mediterranean style town and enjoyed seeing the beautiful hillside homes and cool cafes.
A private yacht excursion with the crew of San Francisco’s Bay Adventure on the restored, classic yacht named Freda B; not sure where the name came from, but it was definitely an adventure as we sailed the bay and the captain allowed me to sail whilst on the choppy waters, an incredible highlight; one with the wind. Next up, we traveled to beautiful Sonoma Valley and visited Ram’s Gate Winery, a fusion of classic elegance with a youthful spirit following by a picnic lunch and bottles of wine to top off the experience.
