Enough with the boxy apartments?
Rent one of my floating apartments in the heart of Silicon Valley at Docktown in Redwood City. These units are former houseboats whose engines and controls have been removed to provide more living space. All are newly remodeled, with lots of light and water views in all directions, front and rear decks and upstairs patio and a downstairs cuddy cabins suitable for lounging, sleeping, or storage.
$1300 per month includes dock and liveaboard fees, water, and garbage. Email or call Lee at 415.883.0449 make an appointment to see one of these rentals.

In this upstream view of Redwood Creek from the roof patio, you see some of floating homes of all sizes and shapes, from sailboats and river houseboats to large floating homes. The Peninsula Yacht Club is a friendly place to have a drink or join a Friday Night dinner.
Downstream the creek widens until it joins the bay. View is from the top patio overlooking the boat next door.
