Beautiful Homes of Sausalito

Sausalito, California is a coastal city in the San Francisco Bay Area, just off of the Golden Gate Bridge, where hillside meets shoreline. The picturesque community is beloved by residents and tourists alike for its interesting culture and beautiful sights.

Reaching Sausalito

There are no airports in Sausalito, but you can reach the city by walking, biking or driving the Golden Gate Bridge; Sausalito is just over the bridge, take the first exit and follow it into town. There are also two ferries that travel from San Francisco to Sausalito – Blue & Gold Fleet and Golden Gate Ferries.

The Homes of Sausalito

As the picture above shows, Sausalito homes are found both in the hills and along the shoreline. Within these borders you’ll also find an eclectic mix of homes. Some are colorful Victorians, which often come to mind when you think of Bay Area architecture.

And others are modern and contemporary.

Floating Homes

Some of the most popular homes in Sausalito are the over 400 houseboats that line the coast. These floating homes come in various shapes and sizes and are a popular tourist attraction.

Gates to most of the docks are unlocked, so many people visit to enjoy a walking tour of the Sausalito houseboat community. Once a year the community also opens up its doors for the Sausalito Floating Homes Tour where tourists get an insider look into this unique community.

Things to do in Sausalito

One of the most popular things to do in Sausalito is to simply stroll the waterfront. This allows you to get a great view of the town, stores, restaurants, cafes and art studios.

Sausalito celebrates the creative arts with many art studios, including those that feature local artists work, such as Gallery 111, ICB Artists Association, and Studio 33. Sausalito also has an annual Art Festival that has been running for 63 years and is held annually on Labor Day weekend.

Another popular place to stop is Heath Ceramics, an artisan pottery manufacturer that has its roots in Sausalito. The original 1959 factory is still standing in Sausalito and you can take a factory tour to see how clay is made and dinnerware is shaped, glazed, trimmed and fired. In addition to the factory tour, you can also browse the Sausalito Factory Showroom where you can get a great deal on discounted dinnerware.

Customer Reviews

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Joshua J.

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”
