About Julie Wu
An Ark is a house on piles over water with one end connected to land, I was very fortunate to be able to purchase this building in 1986-- The ark is now a historic building erected in 1917- I am the third owner. The original house was a barge jacked up on piles. I personally rebuilt the house in 1986 in the same theme of the original barges.
Why Julie Wu chose Sausalito
Sausalito is a very unique town with yachts and water on one side and shops, resturants on the other side and beautiful houses covering the hills. Very much like the Med. in Europe
What makes this House Boat unique
Our Ark is in the center of the downtown area-park your car in our private space in front of the ark and walk accross the street to shops,coffee houses, resturants, markets, boat rentals, bike rentals and the ferry to San Francisco is 5 mins walk down yacht strand next to the ark.

PERFECT LOCATION AND VERY COMFORTABLE
My daughter and her husband and myself just returned from a wonderful stay at the ARK. Loved the square footage which is much more than you get in a hotel room and the privacy made it all the more comfortable. Julie provides shampoo, hair conditioner and body wash which was a nice touch! You have your own little porch area out front where we sat and enjoyed the sun. The walk to town was easy and helped up burn up some calories from all the delicious food we experienced. We will definitely book again! Somehow we lost the key but Julie was very understanding - probably wasn't the first time this happened. We didn't think the noise from the bar/restaurant nearby was a problem but we brought a white noise machine in case it was. Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in this unique property!
Top notch location
Comfortable place to stay and an incredible location. Great feeling when you look at Yelp and see everything described in feet as opposed to miles. We will be back.
Great location to enjoy Sausalito!
The Ark (town side) is nice inside: roomy and cozy. It is right next door to a great restaurant/bar (that looks out onto the bay), a block away from a nice breakfast spot and a half block away from a market. Enjoy all of Sausalito without using a car. You can walk to the San Francisco ferry too. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway with this wonderful place we got to (briefly) call "home".
Bright and cozy
Bright and cozy well appointed place. Right on the water and waling distance to downtown Sausalito. Plenty of restaurants and shops right next door. Had a wonderful stay. Can't wait to go back!
We stayed here during Thanksgiving week. The location is 1 mile from 101 North ( Muir Woods)and (101 South )5 miles to the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. It is also a beautiful easy walk to downtown Sausalito and many great restaurants within walking distance.
Loved figuring out the tide
