We have a number of 35SE Cruisers model housebarges and we are really excited to host you in one of them!

Fully insulated and heated for winter! A/C for summer.

Unique houseboat with all the amenities ...

We are 13 miles from JFK Airport!

Safe environment. There are lots of friendly neighbors. We also stay on the dock in another houseboat!

There is one double bed in main cabin for guests who are comfortable bunking together and then a twin width couch or fold down booth in front cabin. We also have single guest 'foldaway' beds for extra guests

This is a great neighborhood to relax in after the hubbub of the city!

Its relatively quiet (compared to other neighborhoods) with great ethnic food and shops nearby.

Get a great nights sleep then you're ready for the city again!

We have sheet and towels so you don't need to bring any.

There is no engine on the (email hidden)'s just for living.

Standard boat sized bathroom with fully functional shower (see picture)

We offer a free car service to and from the Sheepshead Bay subway station between 8-11 pm

truly a one of a kind vacation home

  • 5 of 5

had a great time on this lovely boat, it was equipped with everything needed and provided a stunning 'water view' from the bedroom and terrace on top of the boat :-) owner was easy to communicate with and very helpful right from the start; answered all my questions concerning motion sickness (which wasn't a problem at all), gave directions and was very friendly. so were the neighbors who treated me very nice and offered a warm welcome.

small shops and restaurants are within walking distance and an express bus stop is 2 minutes away. travel time to manhattan is about 30 minutes.

if you're tired of boring hotel rooms, this cozy boat is perfect to spend some happy days on while visiting ny :-)
