Our gorgeous two story floating home is a contemporary slice of heaven has been totally updated with great love and attention to detail. It has the best views around, including Richardson Bay, Tiburon/Belvedere, Mt. Tamalpais and San Francisco.
It is a perfect getaway for one or two couples looking for a unique place to explore the immediate area or expand out around the Bay Area. Because of our insurance policy, we are not allowed to have children there as we are directly on the water.The location provides you with easy access to San Francisco, Muir Woods, Mill Valley, Stinson Beach, Angel Island, Napa and Sonoma wine country, or the East Bay. Included are two adult size bicycles for cruising Sausalito or taking aboard the ferry to go to the city. We are close to bike paths and hiking trails as well as lots of excellent restaurants in the area. For those of you who would like to use public transportation, we are also walking distance from that. If you are there for business, we provide high speed wireless internet as well as an oversized computer monitor and a wireless Fax/scanner/copy machine in the guest room. For the nature lover, you will find yourself in a birder's paradise with herons, grebes, loons, sandpipers, kingfishers, plovers, coots, ducks, geese, egrets, pelicans and cormorants. With every tidal change your environment presents a new gift for your senses to relish.
On the entry level is maple flooring, two beautiful bedrooms and a custom bathroom with a gorgeous slate shower. The bathroom provides you will all your grooming needs (shampoos, soaps, hair dryer, etc.) for your stay. The beds are extremely comfortable with memory foam mattresses and high quality linens on them. The master bedroom is on the water and has its own deck. On the second floor is a gourmet kitchen with everything the chef in you could possibly need. There is a coffee maker, coffee grinder, milk frother, toaster, blender, juicer, even a Sodastream machine for making bubbly water, as well as most any device or condiment you might want to prep with. The kitchen has an expandable teak dining table in it and opens to the living room with its cork floors and beautiful furnishings. There is a new Samsung home entertainment system ready to show you any TV station, Netflix movies or play Pandora on its Bose speakers. On the deck is a new Traeger pellet barbecue ready to grill, roast, bake whatever is on the menu for dinner.
There are actually four levels to our floating home. A level up from the living area there is a deck with panoramic views to die for (but please don't)! And another floor is located beneath the entry level where you will find a full size washer and dryer and another toilet (the "men's room"!).
Outside is a veritable birders' paradise; herons, egrets, cormorants, pelicans, sandpipers, terns, gulls, Canada Geese, hundreds of species of ducks, and other migratory birds.
