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

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“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!”

— Craig

“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

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“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

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

— Anni S.
Oakland, CA

“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 walk through 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.”
