Unique offering, so glad we stayed here!

  • 5 of 5

We would stay here again without hesitation. We spent a long weekend with our teenage sons and this was a neat way to be close to San Francisco, but yet a little bit away from it all. Our boys found the situation extremely cool. The houseboat would be floating at night and then the tide would go out and our lodging would be sitting on the sand in the morning. The dock community is very eclectic and rich in history. Amy was wonderful, very helpful on the front end making our arrival easy and stress-free. She made sure one bedroom was set up as twin beds before we got there for the young guys. We had one small mechanical issue that was out of the owner's control, but they were extremely responsive and had a repairman come out immediately on a weekend to remedy the situation. Home is decorated nicely and the master suite was extremely comfortable. Great bed!! Highly recommend.

Wonderful stay here and FANTASTIC host

  • 5 of 5

Just brilliant from the moment we walked through the door to the second we (reluctantly) left. Immaculate and spotless property in a lovely part of Sausalito that is handy for town and getting either the ferry or driving to San Francisco. Even though you are on a boat, there was bags of room for the four of us and the deck and views to other house boats, adjacent and opposite, is nothing short of spectacular.

We have stayed in some beautiful properties worldwide and know what quality feels and looks like and the Sea Chalet has it, trust me. If you are wavering in renting this home then don't, just do it!

A final mention on how helpful our host Amy was also - she answered all our queries promptly and as far as we are concerned, went above and beyond the call of duty for us - outstanding support, thank you :-)

charming sea chalet

  • 5 of 5

Sea Chalet is a cute, compact, clean and comfortable floating home with all needed amenities. There is ample parking and a small grocery store & deli located within a short walking distance. The houseboat is conveniently located with easy access to San Francisco and Bay Area towns. Owner was readily available for any directions or questions. Will definitely consider this rental for future vacations.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Home is as advertised! Great location for seeing the San Francisco Bay area. Easy drive into the city or down to Ferry dock and close to Wine Country, Reyes Pte, etc. Contact was easy to work with, quick to respond to questions and received deposit back same week as departure.

Would stay here again!
