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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

About 3 blocks walk to the ferry that took us to the city(cost was $11 each way or only $6 if you are over 62). Went to a place downtown called The Bar Saturday night that had great entertainment(about 3 blocks walk). Went to Muir Woods Park(about 6 miles away) and did a 10 mile hike...this was really one of the best things we did! Walked the Golden Gate bridge(About 3 miles away). Did Alcatraz after taking the ferry into the city. We had a car and staying at this property in Saulsalito was perfect!!

The washer and dryer was handy. Parking right at our door. Grocery store about 3 blocks away. Having a fireplace was VERY nice!

a charming getaway place

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 nights for a quick get away on the waterfront side of the arc. A comfortable and charming place very conveniently situated in the very heart of town yet quiet and private. Our only glitch was that there was no key in the lock box when we arrived and our place had not been cleaned. A call to Julie remedied all this within an hour. For our inconvenience Julie reimbursed us our cleaning fee. All in all a delightful stay and we would return without hesitation.

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.
