About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 max
It is a perfect getaway for one or two couples looking for a unique place to explore the immediate area or expand out around the Bay Area. The location provides you with easy access to San Francisco, Muir Woods, Mill Valley, Stinson Beach, Angel Island, Napa and Sonoma wine country, or the East Bay. Included are two adult size bicycles for cruising Sausalito or taking aboard the ferry to go to the city. We are close to bike paths and hiking trails as well as lots of excellent restaurants in the area. For those of you who would like to use public transportation, we are also walking distance from that. If you are there for business, we provide high speed wireless internet as well as an oversized computer monitor and a wireless Fax/scanner/copy machine in the guest room. For the nature lover, you will find yourself in a birder's paradise with herons, grebes, loons, sandpipers, kingfishers, plovers, coots, ducks, geese, egrets, pelicans and cormorants. With every tidal change your environment presents a new gift for your senses to relish.
On the entry level is maple flooring, two beautiful bedrooms and a custom bathroom with a gorgeous slate shower. The bathroom provides you will all your grooming needs (shampoos, soaps, hair dryer, etc.) for your stay. The beds are extremely comfortable with memory foam mattresses and high quality linens on them. The master bedroom is on the water and has its own deck. On the second floor is a gourmet kitchen with everything the chef in you could possibly need. There is a coffee maker, coffee grinder, milk frother, toaster, blender, juicer, even a Sodastream machine for making bubbly water, as well as most any device or condiment you might want to prep with. The kitchen has an expandable teak dining table in it and opens to the living room with its cork floors and beautiful furnishings. There is a new Samsung home entertainment system ready to show you any TV station, Netflix movies or play Pandora on its Bose speakers. On the deck is a new Traeger pellet barbecue ready to grill, roast, bake whatever is on the menu for dinner.
There are actually four levels to our floating home. A level up from the living area there is a deck with panoramic views to die for (but please don't)! And another floor is located beneath the entry level where you will find a full size washer and dryer and another toilet (the "men's room"!).
Outside is a veritable birders' paradise; herons, egrets, cormorants, pelicans, sandpipers, terns, gulls, Canada Geese, hundreds of species of ducks, and other migratory birds.
If you've looked at the price of hotels in our area, you know how pricey it is. Our wonderful floating home will provide you with a lot more for a less, including an experience you are guaranteed to never ever forget. It's truly a one-of-a kind Shangri-la.
Our preferred method of payment is personal check (provided there is sufficient time) or PayPal.
Reminder: When you stay on a floating home, you are a guest in a close-knit community of fellow house boaters. You must be considerate of our neighbors and we take any complaints from them very seriously. It is a non-smoking property and is NOT suitable for family gatherings, children, or group gatherings that might disturb or disrupt the quiet environment of the neighboring properties in our marina. Consider it for a getaway. It is definitely NOT a party house and a maximum of four people may stay on it.

About the owner: My husband, a retired pilot, and I are both retired and divide our time between the Sierra Foothills, Sausalito and as much of the rest of the world as we can. Our floating home is our utopian getaway. We spent years of blood, sweat and tears making it what it is today, an amazing getaway. We feel blessed having the option of being in the mountains or on the water taking full advantage of all the bay area has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Sausalito, California, United States of America:
I spent several years in this area when I was growing up so I've always had a special place in my heart for Marin County and Sausalito, especially the unique and eccentric lifestyle that you will find on the waterfront here. We are centrally located to get to all parts of Marin, or to the city, the East Bay or the Wine Country.
The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
Just being in a floating home is a unique and unforgettable experience. It really is a world unto its own here! You have privacy and at the same time awesome views all around you. Everyone who has either stayed or just visited here raves about it.
