Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
About Marion Slater
I have owned the cottage for more than 40 years, it was originally a boat house owned by a captain of a fishing boat. I had always admired the property for its location on the water, when it was offered for sale I was happy to buy it, have been glad I did.
Marion Slater purchased this Cottage in 1969

Great time in Sausalito!
We had a great stay the Cottage by the Bay. Great views and a great location within walking distance of restaurants, shops, bars and the ferry.
Lovely, quiet spot minutes away from everything.
We loved visiting San Francisco, but we were glad we decided to stay in Sausalito. Everything was more relaxed and enjoyable away from the busy city. The property is perfectly positioned to enjoy the bay area for day trips into the city, Marin Headlands, or the Muir Woods. We especially enjoyed walking to the nearby coffee shops and restaurants. Firehouse coffee and Sandrino (pizza) were fantastic. One of our favorite things was just watching the sun go down and the lights come on in the surrounding hills. We really enjoyed our time in Sausalito.
Regarding the property, it is positioned at the end of a pier over the water and I would agree with other reviewers that it is quiet despite nearby bars. The cottage is well taken care of and warm even on cold nights. The best part is the sliding door that you can open (or lock), which looks out on the water. In the summer it could be warm as there is no AC, but we stayed in the spring and found it very pleasant. The bed was comfortable, kitchen had a few nice items for cooking, and bathroom had plenty of towels! I am already recommending this to friends who travel.
Really appreciate the positive comments from these nice people. They themselves were perfect guests, I would recommend them to other hosts.
Adorable cottage on the water
So quaint and perfect for a person or a couple. You can walk everywhere. Definitely coming back.
I am pleased to learn that Marni and Jeff enjoyed their visit, would be happy to have them stay here again Marion.
We are repeat visitors at this wonderful location. What more can we say.
So convenient, central, yet quiet and picturesque. The host is delightful and we are repeat visitors so what more can we say.
These nice people have stayed at the cottage before, and are favorite guests of mine. I appreciate their kind comments, and am pleased to know they were comfortable.
This site was just as described online.
We used this location as our place to rest our heads at night. It was perfect for that. It’s within an easy walk of the San Francisco ferry and multiple restaurants. We had easy and free parking for our car, but a truck would work too if needed. It’s a one bed unit with shower. Kitchen space includes a stove, microwave, toaster, necessary dishes and pots, and a mini fridge. Water pressure was great. Mattress was very firm, which my husband really appreciated. There is an outside table to sit and watch the water fowl and sunrise. There are bars a couple doors away but we were never bothered by noise. It was warm the first few nights and the windows don’t open. So we had to sleep with the doors open. Luckily we had no intruders of ANY kind. If you use wash rags I suggest you bring some. Towels were very soft. The place was clean. Despite it backing up to the owners Home, we found it very private and quiet. If you want a new, trendy or spacious place to hang out for hours, this may not be your place. But if you want convenience and functionality, this is perfect.
I appreciate the positive comments made by these guests, they did not seem to realize that the 300 sq ft deck and deck furniture at the side of the cottage was part of their rental, I have re introduced face cloths to the linens provided. Lastly the cottage is a separate building not attached to my house.
