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.

Room with a view

  • 5 of 5

Best by far in respect of accommodation on our trip to California. Very very clean, had a great layout for a couple and teenager. Beautiful place to sit at the end of the day visiting san francisco. Very near ferry to take you into the heart of san francisco yet allowed a really chill out feel of an evening. Amazing restaurants nearby, try F3 one street back and less an 3 minutes walk from accommodation, great friendly service with fantastic food, plus far cheaper than directly on the main road, but higher quality in our view, so much we went twice! Thank you so much for letting us have the opportunity to experience such an amazing place

The house itself was nice and good location. View is nice.

  • 3 of 5

Having our little dog and no screens on the sliding doors and no screens on any windows was a problem with insects and the summer heat. Location is good but being next to the bar had its downfall-noise. And I agree with other review, that the area rug is a bit ratty.
