About Linda Zraik

My home is known for it's relaxing effect it has on people. I love to share my place with great people who have great taste for fine living and are professional, responsible and considerate of other people's property.

Linda Zraik purchased this house boat in 1990

Why Linda Zraik chose The Bay Area

Sausalito Floating Homes (houseboats) are some of the most charming, romantic places to stay around the world. People come from all parts of the world to have a chance to experience what it's like to live on the water, with full amenities and luxuries. We have a very friendly community of people who really enjoy each other and our lifestyle. Downtown San Francisco is only 20 minutes away - and Napa/Sonoma county and wine country only 40 minutes. Many many hiking trails, Mt Tam bicycling roads, and trips to Muir Woods, Marin Mammal Sea World, kayak renting - all within minutes away. And fine, upscale shopping just 5 to 20 minutes away. Buses and airporters are also within walking distance,

What makes this house boat unique

I have a private dock that I love to sit out on and watch the birds and enjoy good wine and conversation. The deck is elegant and great for BBQ's or just sitting out at night with the gas fire keeping you cozy. The internet is throughout so you can work outside on the deck when the weather is great! Everything is organized for comfort and workability.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As the proud owner of this property, I never have asked guests to comment. Everyone has said when they left that they wished they had more time to spend here and their stay was relaxing, peaceful and refreshing. Enjoy your time here! Linda

Amazing floating home with fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic experience in a beautifully decorated floating home. I can't imagine a better place to stay in the Sausalito area. Linda is incredibly kind and friendly and super easy to communicate. When I come back to Sausalito I will definitely stay here again.

Just Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

When passing through Sausilito I always thought to myself "How cool it would be to live on the water?" This home is updated in everyway. The decor envokes relaxation, the huge soaking tub is wonderful, the theatre and pool table perfect, and best of all the internet is super speed :). Linda is so welcoming and helpful in everyway. Her beautiful home felt like mine for the time I was there. The beds were super comfy and the outside entertainment area cozy. The floating home community is quiet and friendly. I would absolutely recommend this home and look forward to another stay in the future. Linda thank you for everything! Happy New Year!
