Property description

The Lilypad is a great, escape. Upon arrival you will have a spacious, spotless 40ft houseboat for you and your guests.

Bright and spacious with incredible views from any one of the three decks or from inside you will see classic sailboats, motor yachts, fishing vessels and the most unforgettable sunrises and sunsets. You will wake up to the gentle rocking of the ocean while being comfortable in a tranquil enviornment. At the begining of the day enjoy hot coffee on the front deck, take a swim off of the houseboat, get some sun and at the end of the day relax on the upperdeck with a cocktail under the stars. See what it's like to 'live on the water' and what being in Newport is really about. Staying on board a houseboat is very unquie and very different then staying on land. There are things that guests will have to learn while staying on board. Therefore, when you arrive on the Lilypad. I will be there to meet and greet you! I will show you around the houseboat and explain the do's and don'ts while staying on board. I will explain how to use the marine radio to call the water taxi sevice when needed and teach you how to run our little honda generator (it's easy to use) which you will need to use on occasion to run certain appliances on board. For example the microwave. Lilypad holds 90 gallons of water at a time. I ask my guests to be very conserative with the use of water. During your stay there might be a time when we will have to deliver water to the houseboat! If this is the case I will plan a time that is good for you. This is part of living on the water but it's well worth it! Looking forward to a great, safe summer!

Please look at Rates for rates and policies.



During the summer the Lilypad is moored in Newport Harbor close to the home of the America's Cup and the Volvo Race! You will have 360 degree water views, see manions on rolling greens and boats going by. The summer months are loaded with great events, music festivals, the tennis hall of fame and world class regatta's. September and October are some of the best months. The ocean is warm, the town slows down and the surroundings are vibrant. We offer full time water taxi service to get you back and forth into downtown Newport and back to the Lilypad. The water taxi takes you through Newport Harbor which is great because it's like having a personal tour which you would not see if you where staying in town. Once you arrive you don't have to drive again until you leave.

Feel free to bring your own provisions and cook on board. If you prefer not to cook we can provide catering/provisioning for small intimate dinners, birthday and cocktail parties!

The Lilypad will be available year round. We bring the Lilypad to a marina in downtown Newport October15-May15 where she will be dockside. There is a charming boating community within the marina. Filled with classic sailboats and powerboats of all sizes. While staying onboard during this time period you will have access to a indoor, heated pool and sauna. You will also be in walking distance to great restaurants, stylish boutiques and historical landmarks. Enjoy the views from Lilypads upper deck of Newport Harbor and the colorful sunsets of the cooler season. There are a lot of festivals and events to enjoy during the fall and winter months and the city by the sea is beautifully decorated for the holiday season. The rates are $125-$200p/n tax included.
