Wonderful stay here and FANTASTIC host

  • 5 of 5

Just brilliant from the moment we walked through the door to the second we (reluctantly) left. Immaculate and spotless property in a lovely part of Sausalito that is handy for town and getting either the ferry or driving to San Francisco. Even though you are on a boat, there was bags of room for the four of us and the deck and views to other house boats, adjacent and opposite, is nothing short of spectacular.

We have stayed in some beautiful properties worldwide and know what quality feels and looks like and the Sea Chalet has it, trust me. If you are wavering in renting this home then don't, just do it!

A final mention on how helpful our host Amy was also - she answered all our queries promptly and as far as we are concerned, went above and beyond the call of duty for us - outstanding support, thank you :-)

This home was so clean and cozy that we didn't want to leave. It was absolutely beautiful and well kept. Amy was so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this home to anyone coming to the SanFrancisco area.

charming sea chalet

  • 5 of 5

Sea Chalet is a cute, compact, clean and comfortable floating home with all needed amenities. There is ample parking and a small grocery store & deli located within a short walking distance. The houseboat is conveniently located with easy access to San Francisco and Bay Area towns. Owner was readily available for any directions or questions. Will definitely consider this rental for future vacations.

Loved the houseboat

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. Very comfortable, beautiful views, great location. Stayed with my wife and 2 teenage daughters. Much different experience than a hotel. We would highly recommend this place.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Home is as advertised! Great location for seeing the San Francisco Bay area. Easy drive into the city or down to Ferry dock and close to Wine Country, Reyes Pte, etc. Contact was easy to work with, quick to respond to questions and received deposit back same week as departure.

Would stay here again!

Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything during our 10 day stay with our two children. The house is very warm and cosy, well furnished with comfortable beds and basic supplies, even found fresh coffee much to my delight! We were greeted with a a nice bottle of wine and found an organised folder with information on places to visit, local stores, restaurants, doctors etc. Janet is very accommodating, luckily we had the opportunity to meet upon our departure. We were all truly sad to say goodbye to such a beautiful, peaceful home with stunning views of the marina in an excellent location. We would highly recommend this hidden retreat to anyone. Thank you Janet for making our stay so memorable and hope to see you soon!
