For the first time, one of the world's most spectacular homes is now available as a vacation rental. This is the American equivalent of renting a castle in Spain or an ancient stone villa in Tuscany, yet with the luxury and conveniences of a five star hotel.

The SS City of Seattle (Yellow Ferry) was originally launched in 1888. She is the oldest surviving ferryboat on the West Coast. The Ferry combines luxury and convenience in a spectacular and memorable setting. Suitable for couples or families, the Yellow Ferry offers the vacation experience of a lifetime.

The master suite on the Yellow Ferry is over 2,600 square feet, plus an 800 sq ft, Deck. One enters the Ferry into an open great room that is over 1,200 square ft, but divided into separate areas for dining and lounging. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows looking out to the bay, the main room is both spacious and intimate. The original deck consists of three-inch thick, virgin douglas fir, inlaid with teak. You will quickly find there is a timeless and soothing quality to being surrounded by 120-year-old wooden timbers and beams.

The carpeted master bedroom features a new, California King bed. Floor to ceiling windows provide expansive views through the original paddle wheel to the Bay. Large walk-in closets add to the feeling of luxury. The private bathroom also has bay views and marble counters.

Down below, the second bedroom and bath have windows located right above waterline, where seals and waterfowl can swim up and eyeball you.

The kitchen has just been remodeled with a new Thermidor five-burner range and a double electric oven. The set up is perfect for gourmet meals or reheating your leftovers from one of the many excellent local restaurants. The kitchen is abundantly stocked with all the necessary pots, pans, utensils and appliances. There is a full table setting for 12 and uncharacteristically for a rental; all the knives have been freshly sharpened.

The Ferry is conveniently located between the natural beauty of the northern coast and the cosmopolitan charms of San Francisco. You can attend almost any event in the City and be home at the Ferry before you would find a parking place in San Francisco. A small library adjacent to the kitchen is stocked with and iPad and with books and tip and local attractions. The Ferry has high speed wireless. For water activities, the home is also supplied with a rowboat, two kayaks and two stand-up paddle boards. Surfboards, boogie boards and fins are also available.

There are an infinite variety of diversions to be found within a 30-minute drive of the boat. But often the best thing to do is simply sit by the bay with a good book, occasionally looking up to see the harbor seals or migrating waterfowl.

The same couple that owns the marina owns the Ferry. We live next door and can be there to assist with any of your questions.

Please be aware that when then you stay on a houseboat, you are a guest in a close-knit community of fellow house boaters. These homeowners have chosen to live on the water because of a shared love of nature and a considerate community. It is essential that you respect the community rights to peace and privacy and conduct your residency the same, as you would expect from a next-door neighbor.

One other caveat. The ferry is reserved for registered guests and overnight usage. We regret it is not available as an event space for weddings or other large gatherings.

Public transportation within close walking distance is limited and inconvenient. A car is highly recommended. It is just a few minutes drive to the City across the GG Bridge. The ferry to San Francisco is approximately 1.5 miles away in downtown Sausalito.

This is an historic house that has been in the family for 60 years. We expect our guests to treat it with appropriate care and sensitivity. The floors are beautiful but soft. No sharp heels and no moving of furniture without picking it up first.

Also the harbor is a small, closely knit community. Please respect their privacy and quiet. No running on the dock. No loud noise on the deck. Treat people with respect and you will be welcome and have a lovely stay.

Huge spacious space that was perfect for us to stay the day before our wedding, the huge open living room was very nice and great for my bridesmaids and I to get ready. The master bedroom is great, huge floor to ceiling windows. But it does not have blinds so I would make sure to bring an eye mask if you are sensitive to light. The lower floor bedroom is ok, my friend moved out due to allergies. The owners were very nice and kept to themselves. I would definitely recommend this place to folks as it's a rare opportunity to stay at such an interesting home and it's very photos friendly :)

Risposta di Chris:
Thank you for the kind review, Christina. We have never received complaints about dust in the lower bedroom before - this could be due to some recent remodel work we did. We will be sure to sort it out ASAP!

Ce lieu est unique et on tombe sous son charme dès le pied posé sur le parking. Vous traverserez un ponton pour arriver à "votre" ferry, bordé des deux côtés de bateaux transformés en maisons dont certains semblent sortis d'un compte de fées. Le ferry est placé au bout est bénéficie d'une vue à 180° sur la baie où canards, mouettes et lions de mer viennent vous saluer le matin. Les lits sont très très confortables et douillets, la décoration vous fait vous sentir chez vous, la cuisine est très bien équipée, on ne manque de rien. De par son emplacement il est mieux d'avoir une voiture pour bien profitez de tout. Si vous êtes en voiture vous avez des centres commerciaux à proximité (10min) pour l'alimentaire et d'excellents restaurants que vous trouverez dans le book de Chris et Izy. Si nous revenons à San Francisco nous y retournerons sur le Yelow Ferry. Quelle belle découverte. Merci à a nos hôtes pour les deux paniers gourmands de bienvenu qui nous attendaient à notre arrivée. Quelle jolie attention. Merci pour tout.

the location was nice and the view was amazing, we enjoyed the fireplace, however the furniture was dated and not comfortable and was arranged oddly.

The Tellis family adopted the City of Seattle in 1956, when we discovered her beached and abandoned along the Oakland estuary. We brought her back to Sausalito, fixed her up, and in various configurations we have been living here for the past 55 years. The boat is now owned and maintained by Chris Tellis and Isabella Kirkland who live at the other end the boat. Both of us have careers in the arts and environment. We love living on the water and are delighted to be able to share this magical setting with others from around the world.
