Property description

If you're looking for accommodations in downtown Boston you'll love our FABULOUS 2 bedroom houseboat, berthed in one of the most convenient marinas for exploring all that Boston has to offer!

We thought of everything so you don't have to! Our houseboat Capricornus is completely air-conditioned and heated to keep you comfortable even on the hottest days! The full kitchen makes meal preparation a snap with a residential size fridge, microwave convection oven and cooktop. We also provide a Kuerig coffee maker and the pods for easy one step coffee anytime! All linens and towels are included in the rental as well, so no worrying about laundry while your on vacation!

The huge outside roof deck is a great spot to enjoy a meal with family and friends, or a quiet cocktail watching the sun set over the water.

This houseboat has been specifically built for us, and designed with a renter in mind. There are 2 private staterooms, the aft cabin has a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress, while the mid ship cabin has a full size bed with the same mattress. There is also a sleeper sofa that pulls out to queen sized bed for additional sleeping options.

There is a flat screen TV in the living room area and the custom handmade wood trim throughout the boat gives you the overall comfort of a luxury home on the water.

The bathroom was designed to allow use of both the toilet area and shower independently of one another. There is a pocket door dividing the room to allow full access.

Location

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boston, this boat is just steps away from the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, the North End, Boston Garden, a large outdoor neighborhood swimming pool, a free tennis court, a public ice skating rink, and countless other things to see and do. Parking is also available for $27/day cash at the marina.


The Experience

Sleeping on a houseboat in downtown Boston is an experience you'll never forget!

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. Cable and WiFi are included free with the rental and the 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

The houseboat 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 view of Boston's city skyline!

So come join us and float all your cares away on a SleepAfloat houseboat in Boston!

Why Boston:
Capricornus is a fabulous rental. It's unlike anything else you will find in downtown Boston, not only is it modern and spacious but it's docked right on the water in downtown Boston! The boat is within walking distance to most tourist attractions and several subway stations.

You are staying literally on the water. Enough said.
