I have lived in Sausalito for many years and recently found myself in a situation where I needed a place to stay while friends and family were staying on my houseboat. So, of course, I decided to stay nearby the place I love so much and went to VRBO to see what other houseboats might be available. How lucky I was to come across this one. Being a bit spoiled, I wanted something close to the amenities I enjoy in my home. To my great surprise and satisfaction, I found even much more. Though it didn't have as expansive a view as I enjoy, I loved the cozy lagoon feeling this houseboat offered.
This floating home is one of the nicest I've been in -- very clean, well furnished, excellent television and music components, complete with nice towels, sheets, shampoos, soaps, (even two very nice bathrobes), etc. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with any appliance one might need. Though it is very close to my houseboat, I felt like I was away on a very special vacation and totally enjoyed every minute on it.
Strangely, as I opened the "Review" section here, I noticed a less-than-favorable review from a previous visitor and would like to say that I for one disagree with the minor complaints listed. Most all of the houseboats (almost 500) are located at the north end of Sausalito and are close to freeway access. Myself and my neighbors absolutely adore our unique lifestyle and have adapted to (or ignored) any freeway noise. The payoff comes from the peaceful beauty of the water, the bird life (especially at low tide), the wonderful sunrises and sunsets, and the easy access to the city, Mill Valley, Tiburon, etc. This is a very comfortable houseboat and one of the best offered on VRBO. Some people may have a different idea of houseboat living, but having been a houseboat dweller for more than 25 years now, I can honestly highly recommend this houseboat to you for a very pleasant experience of life on our beautiful bay.
