About Julie Wu

An Ark is a house on piles over water with one end connected to land, I was very fortunate to be able to purchase this building in 1986-- The ark is now a historic building erected in 1917- I am the third owner. The original house was a barge jacked up on piles. I personally rebuilt the house in 1986 in the same theme of the original barges.

Julie Wu purchased this house boat in 1986

Why Julie Wu chose Sausalito

Sausalito is a very unique town with yachts and water on one side and shops, restaurants on the other side and beautiful houses covering the hills. Very much like the Med. in Europe

What makes this house boat unique

Our Ark is in the center of the downtown area-park your car in our private space in front of the ark and walk across the street to shops,coffee houses, restaurants, markets, boat rentals, bike rentals and the ferry to San Francisco is 5 mins walk down yacht strand next to the ark.

Cute place to stay. Touch noisy. Would return.

  • 4 of 5

Very cute place. Perfect for two people. Great location. Great light. Loved the deck. Loved the linens.

Pay attention to the directions- cabin is not exactly at address listed. Look for it at Pine and Bridgeway next Bocce.

Lower lock on the front door sticks but with patience we got it open after a few minutes.

Relaxing waterfront view at an affordable price

  • 5 of 5

The house was even better than the pictures. The bed was very comfortable, and I loved the ocean themed sheets. The bathroom had plenty of counter space for all our stuff, and there was plenty of hot water. The size was perfect for 2 adults and 2 dogs. There is a small open park within walking distance where we let our dogs off leash to play with other dogs. The shops and restaurants are within walking distance and nice just to stroll through with the dogs. We would definitely stay at The Ark again.

A perfect way to enjoy Sausalito

  • 4 of 5

The Ark is in the perfect location to enjoy Sausalito. The ocean front setting is amazing, there are restaurants and coffee shops in any direction you walk, parking right in front and a short walk to the ferry.

The house is very inviting and well stocked. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is the bed is extremely firm.

Overall I really enjoyed my stay but would recommend a cozy more comfortable bed.

Excellent Location

The pictures don't do this property justice. Very relaxing and quiet location within walking distance to great restaurants, bakery, coffee shops and ferry. Will definitely stay again. Owner was great to work with and very quick to respond.
