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 The Bay Area

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.

Unique Experience

  • 4 of 5

This is not your ordinary rental. Really enjoyed the houseboat. Great deck over the water. The inside was better then the pictures. Great location in the heart of Sausalito. Walk to everything. Good pizza right next door, great coffee and bakery directly across the street. This was a treat for me as I live remote in a redwood forest with nothing convenient. The only thing I would recommend changing is the throw rug in the living room area as it looked a bit raggy. Also a heads up. Google maps did not get us to the house. But if you use the Sausalito Yacht Harbor as your guide you will be right there.

Great Location!

My sister and I loved it here. Very convenient to ferry and great restaurants nearby. We spent a fair amount of time on the outdoor deck in the sun enjoying the view.

Location Is perfect. Parked the car and there it sat. Great live music at night at the No Name Bar. During the day we took the ferry to SF, hopped the cable car to Chinatown for dim sum.

Photos don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect little private nest. Easy drive or ferry to SF, close to Muir Woods and Stinson Beach. The ark is clean and comfortable with beautiful view of the Marina and Tiburon. We loved it and highly recommend
