About Carter Johnson

I bought the Floating home in 2004 and have an absolute passion for the area. For fun I'm on the US national canoe and kayak team and for work I manage Software implementations for Corporate Wells Fargo. I have explored every inch of California and will be glad to help plan some local only type events for you.

Why Carter Johnson chose The Bay Area

This is my ONLY resident but I travel months at a time for International Competition leaving the house empty. This is the perfect way to share my love for the area with others.

What makes this house unique

The views and out the door activities are endless. Sausalito as well as all the surrounding areas including San Francisco, Muir Woods, Marin headlands, Stinson Beach, Mt Tamalipais , Napa, Sonoma, Russian River and 100's of other destinations are just moments from this location. Ferry into Fisherman’s Warf or a 2 minute drive into either the quaint downtown Sausalito or Mill Valley will be simple. Options for family fun are endless here. A nice grocery store is walking distances away as well as a handful of restaurants.

Wow! Best vacation ever! My girlfriend and I stayed 2 weeks in August 2015. The boat house is in the perfect location , very comfortable, clean and lovely. It was a perfect girls getaway with out a car. You can catch the bus about a block away to the city or to what ever adventure you are seeking.

Thanks Carter for sharing your home with us! We will be back in 2017.

My wife and I and our two teenage daughters stayed there in June 2012. It's a lovely house with a great location. Very comfortable and clean. It's a bargain considering all the ammenities and it's location. We'd definately stay there again if we return to the bay area.

great friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this property for my husbands birthday and had an excellent time. We had 2 other couples join us and 2 kids. Fun was had by all! The houseboat was amazing, very comfortable and has anything you would need. Even just walking the docks was fun. We took the ferry to a giants game one of the days and had a great time. Would not hesitate to recommend the place. The owner was very easy to work with.

Fantastic weekend visit

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say how completely satisfied we were when staying on this beautiful houseboat. We had a great experience. The houseboat was clean, well stocked, location was the best on the dock. We were able to use the kayak and paddleboat to get within 10 yards of seals. This houseboat was unique because of all the windows facing the water. It gave you a full view of the water and you didn't feel closed in. The houseboat had plenty of light. The kitchen was incredible not just a little space but a full cooking area and we also had the opportunity to use the BBQ. Another great fun extra was that the houseboat had wifi and also the TV was equipped with netfix & amazon so I was able to use my account to watch any show I wanted without having to go to the store and rent something. So whether you are local, just looking for something different or you are visiting San Francisco consider staying here. We were minutes away from San Francisco, Mount Tamalpais, Tiburon, Angel Island and much more. The owner was also very helpful and available to answer questions in a timely manner. Enjoy!
