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 l986-- The ark is now a historic building erected in 1917- I am the third owner. The orignal house was a barge jacked up on piles. I personally rebuilt the house in 1986 in the same theme of the original barges.

The Owner purchased this house boat in 1986

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.

perfect location in Sausalito

  • 5 of 5
Had a great stay here. Owners were easy to deal with and everything went very smoothly. We had just the town side unit while others were in the water side unit. This was not an issue at all. I don't think we ever heard each other.

Location - there really is no better location in town for houseboat type accommodations. When i was looking for options, i did not realize how far out of the downtown area some of them are. We had a car but would have been fine without it for this part of our trip. Can't say enough good about location.

outstanding rental

  • 5 of 5
We rented this delightful "home on stilts" for 3 nights in March. Our son lives nearby and we have visited this area numerous times, so had the advantage of being familiar with the area. The Ark is a delightful setting on the water. We throughly enjoyed watching all the nautical activity that abounds. The accomodations were spotless and everything one needed was at hand. THe owner, Johnny, was easily accesible and eager to assist! We will definitley rent this darling spot again, and take advantage of all the activities that are offered nearby.

family stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 young children and myself stayed in July 2013... we could not have asked for a more perfect location... John and Peggy were beyond charming and helpful. The house boat was quiet, peaceful and located within seconds of EVERYTHING. It had everything we could possibly need. Our only criticism was the decor and the linens were dated and need a little freshening up... we would not hesitate to stay here again... we will be back...

Christmas

  • 5 of 5
To have a family Christmas, we decided to stay in Sausalito near one of our children. Just to have some fun, I decided to find a houseboat for the visit. By lovely chance, I found the Waterfront Ark and Jonathan. We had a great time, the Ark is beautifully and conveniently located. While parking is provided, a car is really not necessary. We will be back.

Water front, water fowl, wonderland

  • 5 of 5
11/13/13 We enjoyed our stay here tremendously. We went to San Franciso by ferry a short walk from here. One day was spent in Muir woods. We enjoyed eating out on the deck 3 of the 4 days. Only one day was foggy/cloudy. We loved watching the water fowl close up. Glad we brought a western coastal waterfowl chart and our own binoculars. Wish I'd brought some slippers as the hard wood floor was cool and I didn't want to wear shoes inside. Several rugs though too. House is great and I loved seeing the bay as I woke up from our bed. Jon was great to help us. We hope to come back. November here has great fall colors too.

My family has rented many vacation homes through VRBO & we have never been disappointed. My intention was to rent a houseboat in Sausalito (as we own one on Lake Oroville) but the price, availability, & size was just right on the ark. We were very happy to find that the location of the ark was far better than the location of the houseboats & was absolutely perfect for a romantic, relaxing weekend for my hubby & I. You do not need a car to enjoy the fine dining & shopping Sausalito has to offer. The ferry to San Francisco is also within walking distance. We ate dinner the first night at Salito's. It is a large restaurant with a covered, heated, outdoor dining room with a view to die for! There was no wait & the seafood was outstanding. The next night we ate at Sausalito Tacos which is right across the street from the ark. The food & service was awesome & my hubby was very happy that they had Sol beer! The pictures do not do the ark justice, especially pertaining to the view. It was enjoyable to watch the birds, boats, kayakers, & paddle boarders in the bay from the spacious deck. We were very fortunate to stay in the waterfront unit. I was in 7th heaven (in the evening) just sitting in the cane recliner, in front of the fireplace, soaking in the night lights across the water. We look forward to our next trip to the ark & plan to share the experience with friends & family. Many thanks to Jon for sharing his little slice of heaven!
