Unique Accommodations with Waterfront Views.
Experience Boston from the unique perspective of your own floating house! Nestled in a protected marina in Boston Harbor, our houseboat is fully equipped with all the comforts and amenities of home!
Located in a very secure and gated marina, our houseboat is just minutes away from downtown Bostons' most popular attractions; Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market, the North End, the New England Aquarium, the Childrens Museum and the Boston Convention Center.
Our convenient location makes it easy for you reach points of interest along the waterfront via discounted water taxi, Uber, Lyft and plenty of public transportation options. Go ahead and rent or bring your car, this rental has a FREE parking space for it! This is unheard of in Boston! This marina is located in the diverse East Boston Neighborhood of Boston. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops. There is a grocery store less than a half mile away, and a convenience store on the corner. We partner with Rowes Wharf Water Transport to provide a reduced rate water taxi service to the guests of our boats into Rowes Wharf in Downtown Boston. Our guests can utilize this service for $25/pp round trip. This quick 25 minute ride puts you right in the center of all there is to do in Boston. This stop drops you at the Aquarium, Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market and the North End. Our location in the actual working port of Boston affords our guests the unique perspective of the historic Boston Shipping Trade in action. Watch the drawbridge open from your roof deck as barges and tugboats pass by, supplying Boston and the Northeast with the needed commodities for commerce! We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, plus bathroom products We even include condiments and coffee maker for your enjoyment. This houseboat is fully air-conditioned and heated for your comfort in any season. All this for less than the price of the smallest rooms at any of the nearby downtown waterfront hotels! There is a master stateroom with a queen bed, two twin beds in a sleeping loft( no full headroom accessed by ships ladder) and a queen sized sofa bed for the living room. Additionally there is a full kitchen with a cooktop, microwave and full sized refrigerator. Off the kitchen is the bathroom, which is huge by boat standards. it has a full sized stand up shower, head and vanity/sink. The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep. After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy being on the water.
A question I am often asked is how safe the area is. Boston is a very safe city, and our location in the neighborhood of East Boston is quite safe as well. The marina has 24 hour security patrols, along with locking gates at the entrances to the docks and video surveillance. We encourage our guests to be aware of their surroundings and experience Boston as they would any major city. As I mentioned above, we are located in the working port area of Boston, so it is not as picturesque as some of the other marinas on the Boston Proper side, but many guests find this to be the draw. You can escape from the frenetic pace of downtown in the evening and enjoy solitude on the boat
such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions.
Please note we sometimes experience jet noise from Logan airport. Logan does its best to rotate flight paths around the city but sometimes wind direction becomes a factor. Like all cities we can experience night time noise including the drawbridge horn. We do supply disposable ear plugs.
- - Marina quiet hours are 10 pm to 8 am - Please note the houseboat is limited to 6 occupants including children at any time. No Smoking All occupants must be 25 or accompanied by a parent/ guardian Children under 12 must wear a life vest on the docks. We do not supply child size life vests. All guests must be considerate of other boat occupants and obey the quiet times of the marina.
