Ricardo is the manager of this large, modern floating home and throughout the entire process...from booking through checkout....he was always responsive, available, and attentive without being intrusive. Pati created a beautiful environment in what is a very picturesque setting - the Issaquah dock is so charming and colorful with each floating home having it's own personality. The Wildflower is set in prime dock space with magnificent views from every angle. Sitting on the deck each morning to see the harbor seals less than 40 feet away was a special treat. Thank you Pati and Ricardo for a delightful experience!
This house is à dream. All is beautiful and Ricardo is very helpful, available and nice. Thank you for all
First of all I would suggest that the listing although accurate could not possibly do justice to this beautiful home with not one but three decks. Wonderful views across the bay and even a group of seals only a few yards away to keep you company. The city at night looks stunning across the water past Alcatraz. The accommodation is spacious well laid out and was ideal for our family with every amenity required for your stay. We were greeted by Ricardo on our arrival who was very helpful and he explained everything to us despite the fact we arrived much later than planned.
Sausolito is a great base for San Fransisco a short ferry ride away. Also a mention for the Little Lighthouse dinner great breakfast.
We would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation
Thank you Andrew
Thanks for the heads up on Sonos system. I will certainly look into getting Sonos up and running. Thanks for your kind words & will definitely pass along improvements to Pati. ricardo
"magic" is the word - we have had a wonderful time - the house is splendid and the location just perfect. A very special moment in a very special place!
We loved staying on the Issaquah Docks.... full of flowers and friendly neighbors. We had morning coffee on the living room deck and grilled dinner on the lower decks. The living room and dining room were great for entertaining and lounging. The spectacular road biking, trail running and kayaking made it a perfect vacation for our family reunion.
Our stay at the Wildflower was just like the title for the listing; MAGICAL! I booked the Wildflower as celebration splurge for my parents' visit from Virginia to celebrate my son's and father's birthday and my parent's anniversary. All the same day, a trifecta celebration. My parents are sailors so I wanted to book something special that would give us close access to the Louis Vuitton Cup events. The Wildflower definitely filled and exceeded that expectation. I hoped that booking something in the Sausalito harbor would give us a fun place to stay and allow us that special connection felt when enjoying a family boating vacation without having the logistics of actually taking the boat out. I enjoy learning the history of the places we stay and found the history of the houseboat community fascinating. Walking down the container garden lined pier we felt like a part of the artistic community even if just for the weekend. The neighbors were very friendly. The whole family loved it. The kids loved the art sculptures inside, the chalkboard walls and games, watching the birds and seals congregate on the nearby anchored floating pier, and taking a ride on the kayak as mom paddled. My retired builder father raved about the unique Japanese architecture. I loved being able to have a home base to enjoy my family without the stress of being in my own home. Using the fabulous kitchen and grill on the floating dock made meal prep a fun family event. The manager Ricardo was so friendly and made sure we were comfortable and made extra effort to share additional information with us about happenings in the area. Our stay here was really fabulous.
My wife and I along with our 2 adult children spent a long weekend in August at the Magical Sausalito Houseboat. Everything was very easy. Ricardo was waiting for us when we arrived and the house was as described in the pictures. We had a wonderful time and when we are in this area again hope to stay here. This property is a great bargain!
Definitely THE place to stay in the bay aera! Beautifully decorated, gorgeous view on the Bay, quiet neighborhood a few miles from the crowd of SF, and the unique life of a Houseboat in one of the nicest docks of the region.
And if you have any question or issue, Ricardo will be happy to help you.
Thanks for a wonderful vacation! Beautiful location and what great hospitality ! Riccardo was very helpful in every aspect! Bob
This is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever stayed in -- floating or otherwise. It's perfect for entertaining a small group or having a unique, intimate weekend for a couple as well. The location at the end of the dock provides sweeping views of downtown San Francisco and we spent our each morning kayaking around the bay. The inside of the property was immaculate with a large kitchen and social rooms to enjoy the incredible views.
Please don't ever stay here. I want this place for myself next time I am in town.
