Secluded, Romantic, Private, on the Water

  • Cottage
  • 2 guests
  • 1 Bedroom
  • 1 Bathroom

This romantic cottage located on historic 'Ark Row', has a quiet, peaceful setting with a lovely view across the bay. The cottage itself is located in town on its own private dock over the water. It is not 'near' the water, nor does it simply have a 'view of' the water. Drop a pebble a the dock and is splashes into the water. Read or write, dine or observe a parade of maritime life: sailboats, diving Pelicans, and curious seals. Though ten minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge and 15 minutes to downtown San Francisco, you will be in your own secluded world.

Throughout Marin County there are fabulous biking and hiking trails with kayak and boat rentals available in Sausalito. The mini environment of maritime Sausaiito has long been recognized as the most temperate weather in the Bay Area - cool in summer and characteristically fog free most of the year.

Available for long or short term rental, historic waterfront ' ARK' (House on a dock.)

We had a great stay the Cottage by the Bay. Great views and a great location within walking distance of restaurants, shops, bars and the ferry.

We loved visiting San Francisco, but we were glad we decided to stay in Sausalito. Everything was more relaxed and enjoyable away from the busy city. The property is perfectly positioned to enjoy the bay area for day trips into the city, Marin Headlands, or the Muir Woods. We especially enjoyed walking to the nearby coffee shops and restaurants. Firehouse coffee and Sandrino (pizza) were fantastic. One of our favorite things was just watching the sun go down and the lights come on in the surrounding hills. We really enjoyed our time in Sausalito. Regarding the property, it is positioned at the end of a pier over the water and I would agree with other reviewers that it is quiet despite nearby bars. The cottage is well taken care of and warm even on cold nights. The best part is the sliding door that you can open (or lock), which looks out on the water. In the summer it could be warm as there is no AC, but we stayed in the spring and found it very pleasant. The bed was comfortable, kitchen had a few nice items for cooking, and bathroom had plenty of towels! I am already recommending this to friends who travel.

So quaint and perfect for a person or a couple. You can walk everywhere. Definitely coming back.

So convenient, central, yet quiet and picturesque. The host is delightful and we are repeat visitors so what more can we say.

We used this location as our place to rest our heads at night. It was perfect for that. It’s within an easy walk of the San Francisco ferry and multiple restaurants. We had easy and free parking for our car, but a truck would work too if needed. It’s a one bed unit with shower. Kitchen space includes a stove, microwave, toaster, necessary dishes and pots, and a mini fridge. Water pressure was great. Mattress was very firm, which my husband really appreciated. There is an outside table to sit and watch the water fowl and sunrise. There are bars a couple doors away but we were never bothered by noise. It was warm the first few nights and the windows don’t open. So we had to sleep with the doors open. Luckily we had no intruders of ANY kind. If you use wash rags I suggest you bring some. Towels were very soft. The place was clean. Despite it backing up to the owners Home, we found it very private and quiet. If you want a new, trendy or spacious place to hang out for hours, this may not be your place. But if you want convenience and functionality, this is perfect.
