About this listing
This two story, two bedroom houseboat couldn't be more fun...watch dock life go by from the cozy breakfast nook, explore the bay from two kayaks that come with the house, hop on the ferry to San Francisco, or drive to the wine country in 30 minutes!
At high tide, enjoy the soft rocking of a boat while having all the amenities of a real home! Spend early morning hours watching dock life come to life with a gorgeous background of Mt. Tam from the cozy breakfast nook. Keep the front and back doors open to let the warm breeze flow through the home. In the evenings, invite friends over for a BBQ on the dock and sit outside at the wood table to be a part of the view!
The houseboat comes with a large tabby cat named Marcus who needs to be fed twice a day and is grateful to have his litter cleaned regularly.
Guests will be able to use two private kayaks to explore the Bay in addition to all the amenities that come with the house: washer/dryer, bathtub/shower, wireless internet, and a large flat screen TV (but bring your computer to hook up because I don't have cable).

About the Host, Nicole
Bay Area girl who loves where she lives! I take full advantage of the mountain bike trails a few minutes from my house, the kayaks on my back dock and the quick trip into SF for all the hole-in-the-wall restaurants, dance and music I need!
