Note that there are no blinds in the house so if you are sensitive to light, be sure to take your sleeping masks along.

The piano enhances the interior and if you know how to play, then it will be an extra topping on your pizza.

This eye-catching yellow ferry, called the SS City of Seattle, has been floating on the open waters of Sausalito since 1888. Being a historic houseboat of the town, it has been remodeled with luxury and convenience. However, it still retains the hints of history in the form of its 120-year-old wooden timbers and beams. With a huge living room with a solarium where you can bask in the sunlight, two beautiful bedrooms offering panoramic views, and a well-stocked kitchen that’s more than enough to cook gourmet meals, this boat packs quite the punch. Guests are also supplied with a rowboat, two kayaks, and two stand-up paddleboards for water activities in case they feel adventurous.
