Sausalito house boat description

Try a completely different vacation on a Sausalito Floating Home.

Walk down a lush flower filled dock to arrive at 'Sidari' (named after our favorite place on Corfu). Enter the private gate , walk down the ramp and up the steps to the oversized deck of our lovely vacation rental. Gaze at the views of San Francisco, the Marin headlands and Tiburon/Belvedere. The deck is outfitted with a large glass table, 6 chairs, an umbrella and lounges.****Note, this floating home is located in a deep-water berth which is very desirable(less noise, better views, easier access to the water).******

Enter the French door to the open Living/ kitchen/dining area. Look out the floor to ceiling windows or greenhouse windows to the Bay below. A seal might just swim by! The living room features a large wood burning fireplace, pergo floors, a couch and a new Flat screen T.V. A breakfast bar with 2 stools and a very unusual glass dining table with 4 chairs are used for dining. The open kitchen features, a tiled counter, coffee maker, Cappucino maker, toaster , blender and bread machine. The views in every direction are stunning. The sun light streams in all day.

Downstairs, the master bedroom offers a KING sized captain's bed, walk in closet,Television and lovely views. The bedding is fluffy and fresh at all times.

The bathroom features a full size tub and shower over tub. The vanity is new (2011) and there is also a new (2011) riverrock mosaic floor, as well as fluffy cotton towels and a hairdryer. A stackable washer/ Dryer is in the unit.

The second bedroom offers a large closet, KING size Trundle Bed and a desk.(wireless of course) ***WELCOME BOTTLE OF WINE***PRESTO lOG***

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: I am a local Realtor who specializes in the sale and rental of houseboats. I have owned and lived on a houseboat since 1991 and I would not choose to live anywhere else ever!

                  Why the Owner Chose Sausalito:
                  I moved from the Beach Cities in Los Angeles and wanted to be as close to the water as possible. I always adored cottages and that is exactly what Sidari is, a charming floating cottage with amazing views and a deep water berth! I named the houseboat after my favorite place in Corfu and that is why she is painted the Greek colors of Blue and white.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
                  Sidari is just far enough out on the dock to have a peek a boo view of San Fransco and a large open view of the Tiburon peninsula. The deck is larger than most and she also features a wood burning fireplace for those chilly evenings. After I moved in I had a full gas furnace installed. The cathedral ceilings and wainscoting make this houseboat overflow with charm and warmth.
