Great vacation at a wonderful houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of September 2017 here. All was wonderful (except San Francisco temperature was 112 degrees upon our arrival, a record, but back to normal in a few days !!)

The houseboat furnishes everything one would need to enjoy their stay.. Utensils, pot and pans and all appliances are top quality. The unit has the best washer and dryer (LG) we have ever used. Mattresses, linens and furniture are all first class.

Located at an exit/entrance to US301 it is a short 6 lane drive to wherever- - -

I strongly recommend this rental.

Peaceful and Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Janet's beautiful floating home was perfect, actually better than perfect. Her home is beautiful and filled with more amenities than you would receive at a luxurious hotel. From the minute we entered this wonderful place I knew I planned too many outings and ended up canceling our evening plans so we could enjoy the peacefulness of this home. The bedrooms were pretty and the beds were very comfortable we loved waking up to the view of Mt Tamalpais! Bonus, the parking is hassle free which is rare in the Bay Area. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would love to return next year. Thank you for creating such an inviting and restful getaway and allowing us to experience the luxury of your floating home.

Your number one choice......Without a doubt You will Love it

  • 5 of 5

This chic floating home was better than the pictures on the Home away site. Janet decorated this home with a lot of thought and talent. Janet concern that everyone was comfortable and happy was so refreshing. The location was absolutely perfect. This without any doubt this Chic Floating House Boat should be a top choice for a San Francisco/Sausalito vacation.

Everything you could want ...and more

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the houseboat late June 2017, with my husband and our two children (ages 10 & 11). Janet is easily the most experienced, organized and thoughtful host we've ever dealt with. The houseboat itself is amazing! It's impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, while still being comfortable enough to just want to hang out and relax. There was easily enough room for the 4 of us (my son slept in the lower den room on the small couch, which would not fit an adult).

On top of that, she has furnished it with everything you might ever need. Plenty of thick comfy towels (including a darker 'make-up removal' washcloth in each bathroom, so her lovely white towels stay that way). The full kitchen is fully stocked with all the necessary appliances, pots, pans, utensils, spices, coffee, tea, paper towels, detergents, etc. Bathrooms are equally equipped with towels, hair dryers, mini hospitality shampoos, conditioners, soaps, lotions, etc. She left us wine, and dropped off bikes for us to use during our stay! There are fans for when you're warm, a fireplace and several throw blankets for when you're chilly, interesting books and literature about Marin and the sounding area, wildlife, things to do, etc.

The location is perfect - super close to the Marin headlands and Muir Woods, while still just minutes 15 from the city. We slept with the windows open, and the 101 traffic noise didn't disturb us at all, except for the odd motorcycle tearing through. The houseboat neighbors were very welcoming and friendly and were happy to talk about houseboat life. Walking up and down the docks was an adventure in and off itself. There's also a fantastic restaurant/diner a short walk down the road called the Bayside Cafe. Well worth a visit for breakfast or lunch.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone wanting a serene, beautiful and thoroughly unique vacation.
