Property 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***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 (suitable for sleeping for 1) and a TV A breakfast bar with 2 stools and a glass dining table with 4 chairs are used for eating. A seal might just swim by! The living room features a wood burning fireplace. There are two bedrooms with water views and each has a king bed. The King bed in the second bedroom may be turned into two twins. The bathroom features a pebble floor and newer fixtures. The original art by local artists is everywhere.

Why the Owner Chose Sausalito: This was our primary home for 7 years until we bought a large one. Sausalito is a magical place with views changing moment by moment.

The Unique Benefits at this Houseboat: We often stay at this houseboat when we are in town. We look forward to the tranquil open water views and picturesque vistas from every window and the deck. We always take a kayak ride out to visit the resident seals and view the San Francisco skyline. The deck is a perfect place for afternoon cocktails and to waved to the passing boats. On those chilly nights we light the fire and curl up on the couch to read.
