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
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
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.
You couldn't find a better location in Sausalito. The unit itself is very nice, well decorated and appointed. It has everything you could need. Would highly recommend!
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.
Enjoyed the week tremendously. Was able to share both units with family. Nothing was lacking in the way of amenities. Of course waterside unit came with a VIEW!
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!
We spent a lovely evening on the waterside of The Ark. The view was gorgeous and we were able to walk to dinner and breakfast in the area. The bar next door didn't bother me one bit as other reviewers mentioned. There were several families quietly enjoying the beach behind the bar. I didn't find the bar to be particularly loud, even with the Warriors in the playoffs that same night. We would stay here again.
