Spectacular floating home featured in a full spread in San Francisco Magazine and The Guardian (The Guardian: (website hidden)).
Located on Liberty Dock in exquisite Sausalito, this two-level house will host an unforgettable romantic getaway or fun family vacation. Teak floors, Italian tile kitchen & bath, 12 skylights, glass-encased dining room, roof-deck with barbeque, additional patio, and gorgeous indoor birch trunks are just a few of the amazing features of this singular home. Wi-Fi is available, beaches are very close and a maze of nearby hiking trails wind through coastal hills all the way north to Point Reyes. The full kitchen is ideal for cooking and comes fully equipped with everything you need.
Located just over the Golden Gate Bridge in exclusive Marin County, it's minutes away from downtown San Francisco but feels oceans away. It can be the perfect getaway for city-dwellers as well as a launching pad for those wanting to capture all San Francisco has to offer.
Tobiko is also located at the end of the dock and therefore sits on the water (and not on mud!) and has a loyal following of returning guests.
The whole house minus storage. The kayak is not mine and is not available for use, sorry. There's a rental place for kayaks and stan up paddle boards a few blocks away
The houseboat community is vibrant and tightly knit. You'll be welcomed by friendly neighbors and will enjoy strolling the docks to discover a variety of houseboats ranging from old ferries and cabooses to little cabins with crooked stovepipes. Liberty Dock has a variety of gardens and the neighbors are very helpful and kind.
There's a bus stop a few hundred yards from the end of the dock, the house comes with parking and it's a short walk to downtown Sausalito where you can catch a ferry into San Francisco. The buses can take you all over Marin, Napa and Sonoma counties.
Other Things to Note
House is available for a full year Jan-Dec 2016 and I'm looking for a year-long tenant
no smoking or pets, though you can smoke outside the house on the dock. Houses are close together on the docks, so please be respectful of noise levels past 10pm
Shannon is a fantastic host - friendly, super responsive and very accommodating!
My husband and I were working in Sausalito and spent a month on this unique floating home. We didn't want for a thing - it has a great kitchen, is spacious and super comfy. We made the most of the outdoor areas to unwind, relax and take in the gorgeous sunsets.
The grocery store, public transport and the ferry to San Fran are all so convenient and accessible.
Shannon's home is a little slice of paradise - food for the soul - can't wait to go back!!
Shannon's floating home is a wonderful sanctuary and Shannon is a responsive and considerate host. Sausalito offers easy access to everything the Bay Area offers. The location of the boat on the dock is peaceful and provides beautiful views. I would absolutely stay again.
