Overview

Sausalito House Boat Rental Photos and Description

House Boat, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

'The Lonestar' is a truly magical houseboat. Featured in books and magazines, it was recently used as the model for the houseboat in the CBS series 'Parenthood'.

The houseboat was built in the 1960's. The hull is a World War 2 Landing Craft, and some of the original features can still be seen.

The french doors and windows were salvaged from an old Victorian house in San Francisco.

The layout of the interior is featured in the book 'Houseboats', by Kathy Shaffer, AIA. The small space, 11 x 36, is brilliantly designed for the best ergonomic use and comfort.

The loveliest feature of the Lonestar is the quality of light and the reflection of the water, which shimmers in the boat all day much like a prism. There is never a sense of being indoors, rather a feel of being rocked on the water in an open boat.

'The Lonestar' is a special experience which you will remember with joy.

Keywords: A charming houseboat built in the 1960's from a World War 2 Landing Craft, 'The Lonestar' brings to mind the European canal boats. French windows lend a light and airy feel; morning brings the ducks to join you for breakfast on the front porch.

This vintage wooden hulled boat will delight you with it's sweet ambiance.

Why susan neri chose Sausalito

Location, Location, Location!

What makes this house boat unique

The houseboat is a short distance from both San Francisco and wilderness areas.

Walk to the local beach, great restaurants, and kayaking. The ferry will take you to San Francisco where you can enjoy everything the city has to offer. A car ride of 1 - 2 hours will land you in the Middle of the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore.

...and you'll come home to the cozy Lonestar which will gently rock you to sleep!
