Why owner/property manager chose Sausalito
There are over 400 floating homes in Sausalito and each one is unique. Features that make our home special are its comfort, openness and lightness. There are windows all around, 5 skylights, a large glass door leading to a large deck with extremely comfortable furniture, outdoor dining, and gorgeous views. The deck serves as an extension to the living room and is sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds. The interior design is open so that the entire top floor -- living room, kitchen, and music room -- are interconnected. Our travel artifacts and large collection of books and music make staying here a homey experience. And, like other homes in the area, we are close to recreation, cultural activities, and numerous restaurants.
What makes this house boat unique
You can rent a kayak in Sausalito & launch it from deck, if you like, or paddle around the floating home community. You can rent a bike and ride the Marin County bike path, both about a block from our house. You can conveniently visit the City by ferry or car, enjoy the many outdoor activities and scenic areas of Marin County or visit the wine country in less than an hour. You can also stay 'home' in Sausalito, take in the beaches, beauty, restaurants, galleries, shops, gourmet groceries, nearby cinema, playhouses, book stores and other cultural experiences.
