About Julie Wu

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

Julie Wu purchased this house boat in 1986

Why Julie Wu chose The Bay Area

Sausalito is a very unique town with yachts and water on one side and shops, restaurants on the other side and beautiful houses covering the hills. Very much like the Med. in Europe

What makes this house boat unique

Our Ark is in the center of the downtown area-park your car in our private space in front of the ark and walk across the street to shops,coffee houses, restaurants, markets, boat rentals, bike rentals and the ferry to San Francisco is 5 mins walk down yacht strand next to the ark.

Convenient location & amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Waterfront Ark. Check-in was easy. Multiple wonderful restaurants and shops are a short walk away. Parking is convenient. The views of the harbor from inside the unit and the large back deck are amazing. The home is spacious and has lots of natural light. It was clean and well equipped. The owner, Julie, responded quickly to our inquiries. We would definitely stay here again.

Landlord was pleasant and helpful. Sausalito is delightful for exploring with great restaurants. The ferry will take you directly to San Francisco. Location is convenient to other close locales such as Muir Woods, Mt. Tamalpais, Tiburon, Angel Island, etc.

Perfect location, great view, awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

The ark is a great place to stay in Sausalito...right on the water and a 5 minute walk to the center of town. A bunch of great restaurants across the street as well as right next door. We'll try to come back.

The ONLY place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a true gem in the heart of Sausalito. You're so close to all the action of Sausalito but not bothered by the hoards of tourists getting off the ferry from SF. You can truly pretend to be a local. You're also quick access to SF by ferry, bus or car. Or get to the Marin Headlands, MT Tam and other North Bay destinations (wine country!!!) in no time.

We stayed for a family vacay, rented both units and had a 3-year old and infant in tow. We were able to set them up for bed and enjoy the large deck with them comfortably close.

The rental itself was clean, well appointed and had all the extras we needed. Laundry on site, plenty of towels and linens and kitchen wares made the stay very comfortable.

Highly recommend to anyone visiting SF or Marin!
