We had a great stay at the Leah. Perfect location for all locations around Boston. Slight maintenance issues needed to be addressed but they were on top of it. I would recommend this to anybody coming to the Boston area thank you.
We came for a Red Sox game and had such an amazing time. There is a free shuttle that takes you to the T from the marina. The area around the marina is delightful and the restaurant food was very good. We are definately coming back. We enjoyed the houseboat so much.
THERE ARE SEVERAL REASON THIS DOESN'T MAKE IT A 5 STAR. FIRST EASY TO ACCESS, BUT DIDNT UNDERSTAND THE PARKING PASS, BECAUSE YOU DIDINT HAVE A SPECIAL SPOT TO PARK IN AND VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND A PARKING SPOT.
THE MATTRESSES ON THE BEDS WERE VERY POOR. SO HARD, MY BACK HURT FROM SLEEPING ON THEM. ALSO THE FURNITURE (COUCH) VERY WORN, THE LEATHER COMING OFF IT AND SUNKEN IN THE MIDDLE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE TO SIT ON. THE INTERNET WAS TERRIBLE, NEED NOT TO EVEN SAY YOU HAVE IT, COULD NOT SEARCH ANY SITES AND COULD NOT STREAM ANYTHING. ALSO NOT MANY CHANNELS TO CHOOSE FROM ON THE DIRECT TV. ALSO THE WASHING MACHINE WAS OUT OF ORDER, WAS GIVEN INFO ON THAT BEFORE WE CAME BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE TAKEN OFF SOME ON THE RENTAL.
THE KITCHEN VERY NICE. THE MASTER BATH HAD A WASH CLOTH WRAPPED AROUND THE TOP OF THE SHOWER HEAD, DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT. DON'T TOUCH THE BLINDS IN THE LIVING AREA AND UPSTAIRS THEY ARE FALLING APART. SOME MINOR ITEMS THAT COULD EASILY BE FIXED TO MAKE THIS A 5 STAR. ALSO THE MUSIC AT NIGHT ON THE BOARDWALK WAS VERY LOUD AND WENT ON INTO LATE HOURS....... THE ONLY HOUSE BOAT IN THE MARINA, SO YOU CANT MISS IT. THE CARTS WERE NICE TO CARRY YOUR STUFF TO THE BOAT, BUT THE INCLINE ON THE RAMP IS VERY STEEP. EASY TO ACCESS ENTRY WITH A CODE, SO NO KEYS TO KEEP UP WITH WAS NICE. WE HAD TO BUY ICE AND WATER..... THE ICE MAKER OR WATER ON THE FRIG WAS NOT OPERATIONAL. IT WAS NICE TO HAVE SOAP TO BATHROOMS, BUT NO SHAMPOO. THERE WAS KITCHEN SOAP ALSO TO WASH DISHES WITH AND PAPER TOWELS AND NAPKINS WHICH WAS NICE.
IT WAS CLOSE TO THE CITY WITH AN EASY ON AND OFF 93 AND THE FERRY AT THE MARINA RUNS TO BOSTON AND TO THE CAPE. IT WOULD NOT TAKE MUCH TO MAKE THIS A 5 STAR IN MY OPINION
We had a fun week staying at the Miss Leah. The location was perfect for us. There was five of us, one teenager, two parents & two grandparents. Getting on & off & around on the Miss Leah was not a problem for any of us. The waterfront was fun to walk around & we enjoyed the restaurants within walking distance (especially the ice cream shop!). We were there during a hot spell & had trouble keeping the place cool, but there were plenty of fans, so that was just an unfortunate time of year & it was hot for everyone! With the "notes" beforehand we brought plenty of paper towels, coffee filters & cleansers, but looked like so did everyone else, so if you stay you may want to see what is there prior to purchasing more. The water from the faucet is drinkable...being from Arizona where it is NOT, this was great & we refilled bottles quite often. The manager responded quickly to any question which was greatly appreciated. There is some construction close by, but other than that it was a very peaceful location & we did enjoy our own happy hour on the upstairs deck at sunset!!
My wife, three older kids and I spent 4 nights on the Miss Leah over July 4th. It was awesome! Everything exceeded our expectations. It was clean and very comfortable. The location and views are second to none. Marina Bay is a great location with great restaurants and night life. There is a coffee shop less than 100 yards from Miss Leah that opens up at 7am. We would go there for breakfast and coffee each day and sit outside by the water enjoying the views. We would uber into the city each day to shop, sightsee and watch the Sox! We've never had a more enjoyable vacation! We are already discussing our return trip.
The house boat was clean and well maintained. The upstairs bed was small for a queen and not very comfortable. The downstairs bed for 2 people is way too small....Occasionally there was some rocking from the waves which was a bit annoying but to be expected on a house boat....The stairway going to the upper level is difficult when bringing luggage up and down. Overall was a good experience...
