To find one of the top vacation getaway rentals in America, head to the Bay.
As in the dock on the bay.
A teak-floored Sausalito houseboat named Tobiko is one of TripAdvisor's best places to float your cares away. The $5,000-a-month two-level floating retreat has kayak access as well as a roof deck, modern appliances -- and, well, bay views all day and all night.
The boat is so popular it books up months in advance -- and, in fact, as of now it's rented until 2015.
So plan ahead. And, once you do, you'll find peace and relaxation on the not-so-high seas.
