Why the Owner Chose Sausalito:
Sausalito is one of the most beautiful and romantic locations anywhere in the world. A houseboat is the quintessential location in Sausalito. To be on the water, with the constantly changing tides and wildlife, yet be so close to restaurants, entertainment, shopping and conveniences is ideal. Just minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco to the south and the wine country and redwoods to the north - plus the beaches at Muir and Stinson Beaches.
The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
Having a private dock with kayak and paddle boat right on the Bay is great fun. From the houseboat you can go out into the Bay, see Sausalito from the water, Belvedere, Tiburon and San Francisco. The San Francisco Ferry across the Bay to San Francisco is just downtown 5 minutes away. Nearby freeway access to either San Francisco and Wine and Redwood country. The houseboat has a gourmet kitchen and we provide every system and appliances, etc Available - two large plasma TV's both DVR/HD on cable with all the premium channels Wii games, etc. etc. We are tidal so when the tide is out, the sea birds and shore birds put on a show fishing in the mud.Then the tide comes in and you are floating on the Bay. The tide changes twice a day.
