Property description

Please inquire about stays less than 30 days. Right on the water in Sausalito, minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, this light-filled floating home is ideally located for touring The City, Muir Woods, and Napa Valley wine country, as well as the Marin headlands and local beaches. That is, if you can pull yourself away from this cool little serene retreat where the water seems to hypnotize you.
There are 2 kayaks and 2 bikes to explore the waterfront and bike paths, and the kitchen is well-equipped for preparing easy meals. A dishwasher, soap, paper towels, and some cooking staples are provided.
It's a smaller one-bedroom, but vaulted ceilings , lots of natural light, and openness to the water combine to create a feeling of spaciousness and closeness to nature. The attached deck leads out to a small floating dock, which is a great place to sit and look out across Richardson's Bay.
The bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a memory-foam mattress that is very high-quality and quite comfortable. There is open shelf and closet space for storing your clothes. Fresh linens and bedding are provided. The 1 bathroom is in the hallway and equipped with towels and has a bathtub/shower.
The living room has a big comfortable couch and a desk chair, with a high chair at the counter. Meals are usually taken while sitting in the living room or at the counter. There is NO TV, but Wi-Fi is provided for your laptop, as well as a good sound system to plug it into. And, a good assortment of books makes this a great place to do some reading.
In a floating home, some slight movement can be felt if the wind is up or people are moving around, but it is not like a regular boat, rocking about. Also, it takes about 3 to 4 minutes to walk down the wooden dock from the parking lot, past all the eclectic houseboats, and down a sometimes steep ramp (depending on the tide). There are usually carts available to carry your things.
Call or email now and have a unique and memorable experience!
