Sausalito Floating Loft on SF Bay

Boat - Entire home/apt · Locust Street, Sausalito, CA 94965, United States

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a great time staying on Henry's scrupulously clean houseboat. I breakfasted at the Lighthouse Cafe (an excellent Danish/American/Mexican place across the street) and used Uber and the Sausalito ferry to travel daily to San Francisco for my four-day visit to the Bay area. I had the pleasure of returning nightly to be with the fun and interesting people who live at the marina and the comforts of home at Henry's houseboat. I hosted my brother's family for pre-dinner drinks on the stern of the boat, where we bird-watched and enjoyed views of Tiburon across the water. I would happily have stayed there a month, but alas I had to return to work on the east coast. Thank you Henry for a wonderful visit to the Bay Area!

  • Totally unique place to stay. My two kids love telling everyone about their first time sleeping on a boat. We ate dinner with blankets on the top deck. In the morning we made hot chocolate and watched the birds, seals and human neighbors fish. Just what I was looking for.

  • Amazing location in Sausalito. Interesting community to be a part of. Where else can you be tucked into the most amazing place and views on the water and see the GC bridge, or walk into Sausalito for dining and sightseeing? We had sea lions swimming by our slip!! The houseboat is modern and new with a lovely bathroom. The communication with Henry was excellent and very prompt - especially for a last-minute booking! The houseboat was clean and spotless when we arrived.

  • After cycling to Sausalito my friends and I got it in our heads that we wanted to stay on a boat for the night. We found Henry's place on AirBNB and knew it would be a perfect fit. Once he confirmed we biked over and were completely blown away with the view, serenity, and cleanliness of this house/boat. Henry was super helpful and all the details we needed were sent in a handy email packet. We loved it so much we decided to stay for 2 nights. The only thing that would make it better would be if it were my permanent home. :)

    Thanks for an awesome experience Henry!

  • The boathouse was great, very clean, well stocked with water, soap etc - things a lot of hosts forget. This was perfect walking distance to everything. The TV was awesome at night with lots of movies. Very cool shower, and best location on the dock. Super quiet! Tempurpedic bed was also very comfy. A great way to decide if you ever want to live on a boat. Henry was also perfectly responsive on every question!

  • Very very cool digs in a very cool city. Excellent accommodations and very helpful, courteous host. Only had one major problem - that we could only stay one week!

  • Our week-long stay on the houseboat was great. The accommodations were excellent, the boat was well-stocked, and the views were great. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay while visiting Sausalito.

  • Thank you Henry, our family had a great time even though it was just overnight. We wished we had a couple of more days to spend on your boat. Everything was clean, stocked with all supplies and recreational vehicles were on hand. Instructions, perfect! Neighbors very friendly and helpful. Told us where all the locals spots were. We would love to come back to Sausalito and visit again. Thanks, The Boone Family

  • Our stay on the Sausalito Floating Loft was great. It was clean and well stocked with what we needed and it is a great central location for activities in the Bay Area. We used the kayak and stand up paddle board which was amazing. A baby harbor seal tried to climb on board the kayak. Great fun. Henry was excellent host and I definitely recommend staying here. A terrific experience.
