CUTE, COMFY & AFFORDABLE FLOATING HOME, MINUTES TO THE CITY

Sausalito House Boat Rental Photos and Description

House Boat, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Right on the water in Sausalito, minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge, this light-filled floating home is ideally located for touring The City, Muir Woods, and Napa Valley wine country, as well as the Marin headlands and local beaches. That is, if you can pull yourself away from this cool little serene retreat where the water seems to hypnotize you.

There are 2 kayaks and 2 bikes to explore the waterfront and bike paths, and the kitchen is well-equipped for preparing easy meals. A dishwasher, soap, paper towels, and some cooking staples are provided.

It's a smaller one-bedroom, but vaulted ceilings , lots of natural light, and openness to the water combine to create a feeling of spaciousness and closeness to nature. The attached deck leads out to a small floating dock, which is a great place to sit and look out across Richardson's Bay.

The bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a memory-foam mattress that is very high-quality and quite comfortable. There is open shelf and closet space for storing your clothes. Fresh linens and bedding are provided. The 1 bathroom is in the hallway and equipped with towels and has a bathtub/shower.

The living room has a big comfortable couch and a desk chair, with a high chair at the counter. Meals are usually taken while sitting in the living room or at the counter. There is NO TV, but Wi-Fi is provided for your laptop, as well as a good sound system to plug it into. And, a good assortment of books makes this a great place to do some reading.

In a floating home, some slight movement can be felt if the wind is up or people are moving around, but it is not like a regular boat, rocking about. Also, it takes about 3 to 4 minutes to walk down the wooden dock from the parking lot, past all the eclectic houseboats, and down a sometimes steep ramp (depending on the tide). There are usually carts available to carry your things.

Call or email now and have a unique and memorable experience!

VERY TRANQUIL AND UNIQUE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here when I was in the area for my cousin's wedding. I have been doing a lot of business travel and wanted something than another hotel room! This whole area seems like a laid back sub-culture of Sausalito. I was traveling alone and was never concerned. The walk to the house is amazing. The place itself is more than I expected. There is a nice café, deli, market and laundry mat within easy walking distance. The owner was extremely helpful and provided very clear communication. I will definitely visit again. In fact, I really had a hard time leaving :).

LOVELY HOME

  • 5 of 5
It was a short time spend at Jay's float house. But we had such a fantastic time!! Such a fresh atmostphere to be in a house with water as it's surrounding. There are books for every type of readers :-) to enjoy on the dock. Everything was so homey, we cooked dinner and played Scrabbles! The bed was heavenly. And waking up to calm mirror reflecting water on the dock ended our perfect get away. THANK YOU for such a lovely place.

TRANQUIL WATERFRONT OASIS

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I had a wonderful stay at this brightly painted, well-equpped and utterly charming houseboat. We were blessed with sunny weather - the view from the living room out onto the deck and the harbour is to die for on a sunny day. Everything we needed was provided - it would be an additional plus if an ironing board and iron could make their way onto the houseboat. We used both the kayaks which are very stable, excellent for first-timers, and the bikes. Jay thoughtfully obtained a 2nd bike for us - thanks Jay. There are many fine restaurants around although we chose to eat in one night to enjoy the houseboat more fully. If you like to dance, we highly recommend the Seahorse Bar in Sausalito. The night we were there it was most a local crowd who were very friendly. We had a blast. Thanks Jay for a memorable weekend.

BIKE & FERRY TO THE LOUIS VUITTON CUP RACES

Bike & Ferry to the Louis Vuitton Cup Races
  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect location for us to bike to Sausalito, board the ferry, disembark @ the Ferry Building, then bike to a number of places to watch Artemis and Luna Rossa race. We did that back to back days and on the last day, took the Blue and Gold Ferry that departed from pier 39/41 so we didn't have to ride clear down to the Ferry Building. We were expecting cousins from Berkeley for dinner that night and the extra time allowed for prepping. My cousins loved the place--it was fun to play host. A picture of the dock and all the potted flowers, plants and foliage should be included somewhere with this property as that in itself is an asset. Was a joy to walk the dock. Thank you so much for renting it.

ROMANTIC WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
I rented the houseboat for, as the title says, a romantic weekend with my girlfriend.
The houseboat has a 'lived in' appearance, not in any way bad, but not a sparkling place to sleep.
It was a very comfortable and quiet place to stay for the weekend and the neighbors always greeted us with smiles when we passed them on the 100 yard walk along the deck to the houseboat.
What can I say, it's a great change from what you experience in a hotel room.

If I would have had more time to plan I would have picked up some groceries to try out the kitchen. As it was we just used the microwave for some restaurant leftovers.

Diana, the property manager, was very flexible on our arrival time to meet up, and also was helpful and provided some good tips on local restaurants.

So yes, this place has my recommendation.
