Come Home to a Floating Hideaway by the Bay
Sip your morning coffee on an open deck, with expansive views of San Francisco Bay. Then, after a productive day, kayak down the shoreline from your private dock for a casual meal at an award-winning Sausalito restaurant.
The gourmet kitchen features a Bertazzoni Professional Series gas range that looks like it came from a Bond movie and a matching Bertazzoni refrigerator. (Maybe you’ll stay home for dinner after all!)
And this striking floating home is located in one of the most convenient and accessible berths in the Bay Area, It’s just seven minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge in Sausalito — if you’re driving 55 — with close-in parking.

This 2-bedroom, 2-bath floating home features wonderful views of the Bay, along with stunning vistas of nearby Mt. Tamalpais. When your friends come over to see your new place, their jaws will drop again and again as they visit each new room and three separate decks.
After a long day — or an outing on the Bay — you’ll relax in a custom-made teak soaking tub. In fact, you’ll both relax, because both bathrooms have these unique and stunning fixtures! The sinks are hammered copper, and both bathrooms feature new cement tile floors with brass inlays, thermostat-regulated heated towel warmers, and elegant new vanities.
The owners have completed beautiful modern updates throughout this charming home, including beautiful shiplap walls. The living and dining areas offer floor-to-ceiling views of the water, with a layout focused on the magnificent vistas. There’s also a full basement for storage or a workshop, plus a private boat dock.
All-new wide-plank French oak floors add drama to every room, while hydronic radiant heat (controlled by two hyper-efficient Nest thermostats) provides consistent warmth. The living room features a stone fireplace, and all appliances, fixtures and lighting are new and top of the line.

This beautiful Floating Home is berthed in the heart of Sausalito’s famous houseboat community, just north of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, California. This is the area where Otis Redding wrote the classic song, “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” in 1967, making this one of the most prestigious houseboat addresses in the world.
65 years ago movie star Sterling Hayden and philosopher Alan Watts held their versions of the Paris salons of Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso and F. Scott Fitzgerald in this area. Although those large events — and the bohemian vessels where they were held — are now long gone, residents still entertain neighbors and host discussions on a smaller, more intimate scale.
Today the neighborhood is a fascinating mix of people, with residents ranging from artists to entrepreneurs and from pilots to interior designers.
A small store, a deli that’s been featured on TV restaurant shows, and a highly-rated casual restaurant are just a block or two away. A shopping center and regional transit hub for bus service are located several blocks away.
Just a block from the entrance to Issaquah Dock lies the Mill Valley-Sausalito Multi-Use Path. To the north your bike ride leads to the trails of Mt. Tamalpais. To the south you can ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco.
A few blocks to the south are a supermarket, the post office, an art gallery supported by over 100 local artists, and a wide range of coffee shops, diners and restaurants including American, Chinese, Himalayan, Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Pizza.
