About the property

Floating Home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (sleeps 4); Water And Mountain Views

Our home is in Sausalito’s unique waterfront community within the vibrant San Francisco urban area. Our 2000 square foot, two-story home has wonderful views of mountains, bay, marinas, and sea birds.

Our house is nicely and comfortably furnished, with a fully-equipped, wrap-around kitchen with granite counters, 3 decks with great views, and is light and airy with lots of windows and skylights.

The setting of our home is unusual as it is one of only a few in the houseboat community with an empty berth on one side - affording privacy, quiet and scenic views. Designed to take advantage of its location, it is very open, with 5 skylights and large windows/glass doors that provide terrific daytime light and views. Yet, there is privacy on the side of the house with a close by neighbor. The deck is relatively large and exceptionally private . Its furniture is very comfortable, with a table and umbrella for eating, convenient to the kitchen. In nice weather, with the doors open (no bugs here!), the deck is like an extension of the house.

Downstairs, we have two bedrooms and two full bathrooms; the master bathroom is en suite, has double sinks and a combined large marble shower and jacuzzi which can fit 2 snugly. One bedroom also serves as a study. On the top floor there are a sun-filled living room, a modern kitchen, and a breakfast/music room in a full-floor open design with 12' ceilings.

Our home has paintings, photographs, and artifacts from our travels in the us, europe, africa, south and central america. We ask that you take care of them as you would your own things.

This home also has many amenities: hardwood floors, gas fireplace (sf summer nights tend to be cool), multiple open doors and windows (there is no humidity, so there are no mosquitoes), washer/dryer, jacuzzi tub, toto washlet toilet seats, adjustable tempurpedic king bed, piano, 2 bose wave radio/cd players, 3 tvs, wired and wireless internet access, directv with premium channel, dvd player, vcr, tivo, color copier/printer/fax and speaker phone.

We are minutes walk from bay-area public transportation and ferries. Our home comes with free parking. Please note that our home is non-smoking and that we cannot accept pets -- sorry.

The sausalito floating home community is a uniquely relaxing and beautiful setting that provides ready access to san francisco as well as to parks, beaches, and recreation areas of marin county and the napa/sonoma wine country.
