Sausalito and its famous houseboats have long attracted CEOs, writers, artists, scientists, filmmakers, and radicals to its blue waters and calm shores on the San Francisco Bay. It's here where Otis Redding penned the unforgettable song Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay. If you are looking to recharge your batteries, you can't get closer to the water and surrounding nature than this.
This 2BR / 1BA recently remodeled houseboat features stylish contemporary finishes and feels more like a luxe hotel suite than boat living. The houseboat sits waterside and offers 270 degree views of the bay, including Sausalito Hillside, Mount Tamalpais, Belvedere/Tiburon, Angel Island, and Alcatraz and SF in the distance. Best of all, the location is unbeatable and in the center of where all the action is: wine bars, dive bars, live jazz, award winning restaurants, and casual dining abound. Walk to ferry in 5 mins to go visit SF, or stay in and cook in the full kitchen and watch the sunset from the many decks. This is 500 sq ft of California indoor-outdoor living at its finest. Guests have access to a complimentary La Jolla beach cruiser, 2 stand up paddle boards, and kid and adult kayak (see pics).
Free 1 car parking. Free internet wi-fi and watch thousands of free movies, shows, live TV on Apple TV. Max occupancy is 4 adults and 2 kids, and that would be tight. Best fit is 2 adults and 2 kids.

The boat is in a great location -- you can walk to the Bay Model and the longboat that's being built nearby as well as to the ferry.
The Lighthouse is perfect for breakfast.
The master bed is very comfortable. However, the boat was smaller than I expected and the layout is not for someone who is less than spry. The step up's and step down's could be difficult for some.
Hint -- the towels are in a basket UNDER the bathroom cabinet.
Thank you Henry for another amazing experience! I feel truly fortunate to have spent my birthday in such a beautiful place, and be able to share your boat with my family. It's my second visit and I hope to come again soon. Very serene and chill. :) Thanks again!
This is a good place to stay, the view on the top is amazing and made us really relaxed. The evening here is very quite and beautiful.
We have mixed feelings regarding our stay on one of Henry's boats.
The boat was far too small for our family of 5.
There were not enough beds or bedding.
I slept under the two towels provided.
Our kids did not like the forecastle sleeping area. (The low ceiling sleeping area in the bow of the boat. It had a very strong mildew / musty smell.
Of course, it's an old boat in Sausalito. One should expect such smells. It would be appropriate to mention this to potential clients.
It was not enjoyable to have our kids complaining and unable to sleep.
The boat was clean enough. The duvet cover was covered in long black hairs from the previous renters?
The shower has little to no pressure. we were literally unable rinse soap off our bodies.
How awesome to get to stay on a boat in sausalito. What a great experience. The location is awesome! restaurants , town and the ferry to SF right there! Really great!!
For a couple, this would be a fantastic getaway!
A romantic couple on this boat would ideal.
All in all the sleeping arrangements were not good for my family.
On the second night another family showed up.
They were from Germany. Tired and cold.
The confusion was uncomfortable. It turned out Henry has multiple boats that he runs his slightly pirate business with.
The house boat is awesome. The location great and the canoe and peddle board great extra's. We were with our three daughters and it was a tight squeeze. The wether was good though so it was no real problem. Henry was very quick in responding to questions and getting things fixed.
From start to finish -- we had the best time. Henry was an exceptional host. We used the kayak to swim with the seals and enjoyed beautiful evenings on the deck. There is nothing that could have been better. Thank you! ( we want to move in!)
This place was so great, a perfect location in the marina with amazing water views. The houseboat was super clean and inviting. Our kids loved their little "cave" where they slept. We used the kayak and the paddle board, walked to town for dinner, and enjoyed ourselves immensely.
