Be taken aback by the great room fireplace of a historic, renovated houseboat

The SS City of Seattle isn't just a houseboat or a floating home; it's a piece of Sausalito, California's history. First sailed in 1888, the boat is actually the oldest of its kind in the area. This historic home offers a luxurious stay for guests that won't soon be forgotten. According to Chris' Airbnb listing, the home features sleeping space for up to six guests and offers two bathrooms.
With features such as oversized windows, marbled bathrooms and updated, modern appliances, this beautiful boat has everything you need for an amazing vacation. As soon as you step aboard, you'll be taken aback by the sheer beauty of the vessel and the spacious, vast rooms.

The great room includes separate spots to relax in. The first portion of the living room sits guests next to stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, giving a glorious view.
In the center of the room there's a second sitting area, which offers close proximity to the boat's fireplace for chilly seaside evenings. Plenty of spots to sit and multiple pillows make this area a perfect evening conversation spot.
Walk through the great room into the kitchen and take in a gourmet space that's fit for a professional chef. Outfitted with a Thermidor five-burner range, double oven, refrigerator, sink and plenty of state of the art appliances, cookware and utensils, the kitchen is truly any cook's dream.
Once your meal is ready, sit down and enjoy it at the spacious 12-person dining room table. Pendant lights and oversized windows add warmth and intimacy to the dining experience.
Step into the master suite for a truly sophisticated sleeping experience. The room features a California King bed, plush carpeting and wood paneled walls. A walk-in closet offers plenty of storage space for clothing.
This beautiful, relaxing bedroom gives guests a floor-to-ceiling view of the ship's paddlewheel, which is really cool and adds even more character to the space. ​
The master bedroom includes a private bathroom, which offers gorgeous views of the bay, marble counters, sink, toilet and shower.
The second bedroom is downstairs. This bedroom includes a double bed and an adjacent bathroom.
The downstairs bathroom boasts a gorgeous vanity with an ornate, decorative mirror as well as a sink, shower, and toilet.
The view from the boat's front deck is peaceful and enjoyable.
The sunset over the bay is absolutely a must-see for guests. While you're visiting, there are plenty of activities, including water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding and boogie boards, as well as venturing into town or to nearby San Francisco for sightseeing, shopping and meals.
