Boston house boat description

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 on foot, via water taxi included in rental price. Go ahead and rent or bring your car, this rental has a FREE parking space for it! This is unheard of in Boston!

This houseboat is located in the up and coming 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. As mentioned above, we offer a free water taxi service to the guests of our boats (normally $15pp each way) into Rowes Wharf in Downtown Boston. This quick 10 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!

This unique location is becoming a hub for working professionals. You may never want to head into Downtown during your stay. If you are able to pull yourself away, the multiple transportation options for getting into the city make it a cinch!

We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, plus bathroom products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions. We even include condiments and a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffee pods 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 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 the fantastic views..

***Please note, we do try and keep this calendar as updated as possible, but please do inquire even if you see your desired dates may be taken. We have a few other options that may be available even if this boat is not. For our latest availability we suggest you check our direct site, RockOnRentals dot com. You can view all of the boats we offer in Boston, check pricing and even book right from that site.***

Thank you for taking the time to read about our houseboat. Please call or email today to find out more about this unique and memorable rental!

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  This houseboat is located in the up and coming 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. As mentioned above, we offer a free water taxi service to the guests of our boats (normally $15pp each way) into Rowes Wharf in Downtown Boston. This quick 10 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 is in the actual working port of Boston and 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! While not as picturesque as other locations within Boston, this area is very safe and extremely quiet. The protected part of the harbor the boat is moored in rarely gets any wake or rough water from passing storms, in fact it is the location most boaters store their boats when inclement weather threatens. This location is perfect for anyone who wants to experience being on water but has a fear of sea sickness!

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: I own a property management company specializing in yacht and houseboat rentals. I love the water and enjoy sailing every chance I get! I carefully select the listings I represent, so you can be assured you are staying in a property I have stayed in and am confident you will enjoy. I enjoy hosting vacation rental travelers as you are the most adventurous, interesting folks I have had the pleasure to rent to. I look forward to welcoming you aboard!

                  Why Boston:
                  These houseboats are a great way to enjoy being on the water without giving up conveniences of typical shore based lodging. With direct water and power this boat functions exactly like your home, but with a gentle rocking that reminds you that you are experiencing something truly unique.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
                  With free parking, WiFi and water taxi service into downtown you can experience Boston as a local, yet retire to your own roof deck at the end of a long day exploring and enjoy the solitude and relaxation only a boat can provide!
