San Francisco is a world-class city built on the edge of San Francisco Bay and sprawling across hills and valleys in a colorful mosaic of neighborhoods, cultures, and vistas. If you have not been here before, you'll want to explore the typical tourist sights -- Fisherman's Wharf, the Embarcadero and renovated Ferry Terminal with its shops and farmers market, North Beach, Telegraph Hill, Chinatown, Union Square, Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz, and more. To get a feel for the real city, you should also enjoy its distinct neighborhoods -- Pacific and Presidio Heights, the Richmond and Sunset Districts, the Mission, Noe Valley and the Castro, Japantown, Sutro Heights, the Presidio, and much more. We have tour books that you can use in planning your visit. There are many renowned museums, parks, beaches, cultural venues (music, film, and theater), great restaurants (especially seafood and ethnic venues) plus sporting events (e.g., the SF Giants play in the city).
If you feel like staying at home, Sausalito is a charming, small, and quiet town with art galleries, restaurants, shops, parks, marinas, spectacular Bay views, gourmet groceries, access to great book stores, art movie theatres, summer music and art festivals, farmers markets, health food stores, health clubs and spas.
Despite proximity to SF, our location provides easy access to hiking, biking, jogging and walking paths, and other outdoor activities, as well as beaches and redwood forests. You can also enjoy the wine country of Napa and Sonoma, Stinson Beach, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterrey, the East Bay (Berkeley/Oakland) and much more within an hour or so of our home.
The Sausalito floating home community is a uniquely relaxing and beautiful setting for a vacation only minutes from all of San Franciscoâ€™s neighborhoods, parks, cultural activities and sights.
Check out our famous floating home community at www.floatinghomes.org (look at the virtual tours to see images of many of our neighbors).

We are now retired and can travel anytime! Surprise us!Open to any dates
Otherwise booked for the year, we are seeking a one week summer trip (June or July) to a southern CA beach community with our daughter, her partner & 2 children -- a 5 year old and a 3 1/2 year old. They are well behaved, good kids who are carefully supervised. We've taken them on past exchanges and never had a problem. Orange County is preferred. If a non-simultaneous exchange works best for you, we can almost always work that out given our two homes.
We like to go to Hawaii during the winter and are very flexible on dates. We'd be interested in a Hawaii exchange for next winter.
We are flexible and can travel almost anytime, anywhere. We have a second home in Greenwich Village in New York City, so we can do non-simultaneous exchanges for SF or NY. See Listing 168659.
Jim worked for many years as a health care researcher in his own business and as part of a research institute. Eve worked for 20 years in the US Senate and managed several statewide political campaigns. After leaving the Senate she's consulted abroad for USAID, lectured and been an adjunct professor of political science.
We have a 40 year old daughter who resides in Oakland and she and her family, including 2 preschoolers, occasionally visit with us when we do home exchanges.
Our spacious studio apartment in a charming residential neighborhood --Greenwich Village (the West Village) -- in Manhattan also available for exchange. There are virtually no hotels or commercial accommodations available in this part of the City. This makes a non-simultaneous exchange relatively easy to arrange. See Listing 168659.
