About the Property
Boat, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
You may want to cruise locally in Lake Union or go through Portage Bay into Lake Washington. You'll see the University of Washington and many of the houseboats that were made popular in the movie 'Sleepless in Seattle'.
The views of Mt. Rainier to the south or Mt. Baker to the north are spectacular. If ocean cruising is your passion, we can pass through the Ballard Locks, an adventure in itself, out into the Puget Sound. From there we can cruise south and explore Seattle's waterfront or travel to one of the nearby islands. If you want to cruise up to the San Juan Islands this can be booked and would need to be a 1-2 week trip. As there are many variables some pricing will need to be discussed when you call. I do liveaboard so am present, very informative and will be the captain on boat outings. I have one friendly cat, Bunny. If you are looking for that romantic getaway, you will be completely pleased with staying onboard for your Joyfull Adventure. I am within walking distance to the Space Needle and downtown Seattle. There are wonderful restaurant's very close by the boat and we can also take the boat out to a restaurant. If you want to eat in, the kitchen is fully stocked and don't forget the BBQ to cook up fabulous steaks or seafood of choice.
Keywords: Boat, liveaboard, fabulous views of Seattle and the space needle. It is NOT cold on this boat in the winter. It is warm and cozy.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

- I have a 1989 Honda Pacific Coast that I can rent out if you have a valid current endorsement and your own insurance. I would be willing to rent it per week for 300.00. Back to my boat: On top of the boat there is a 10 X 10' garden (beer/wine garden) along with the hot tub with full views of the downtown and the space needle. We can take the boat out cruising on Lake Union, Lake Washington or out to the Puget Sound. I design the trip around your vacation....moreless

Why the Owner Chose Westlake, Seattle, WA, USA:
I bought this unique stable vessel to meet and share with others. It is a great way and super relaxing way to get out on the water. Seattle is such a beautiful city to live in let alone on a boat with the views of the downtown and the space needle.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
One of the unique benefits is the fabulous views of the downtown day and or at night. When the sun sets on the buildings of the downtown or capital hill the windows light up and glow shades of yellows and reds. It is awesome to enjoy the hot tub day on days or nights and than jumping from the boat or going down the slide right at the dock. Come on in, the water is great. I am super close to entertainment, the city, on the bus line and an abundance of places of fine dining.
