Sausalito is a charming waterfront town filled with great restaurants, art galleries, and many opportunities to explore nature. The world-famous Sausalito houseboat community is a very special place to live: diverse, creative, safe and made up of families with children, professionals, artists, retirees all who enjoy experiencing the water and wildlife. Living on the water provides a moderate climate year-round.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: We have lived at Wolf Island for 30 years, were married aboard with over 100 guests, and raised our daughter here. We are both artists and collectors and have enjoyed creatively improving and remodeling our wonderful floating home. Be sure and click on the attached link to view The Travel Channel's special on Unique Houseboats featuring our floating home. Or, search YouTube for 'Wolf Island June 2012'.

Why the Owner Chose Sausalito:
We have lived in the community for over 40 years and know the area and everything about floating home living. It is a lifestyle like no other and Wolf Island is a very special place.

The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
Located at the end of the dock, we see an ever-changing panorama of paddle boarders, kayakers, great blue herons, egrets, loons, seagulls, seals, every day. Easy access to the water has enabled us to jump in a boat and easily explore the area from Angel Island, all around the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento Delta.
