Fantastic stay on a houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We finished our family trip to Seattle with a few nights on Bill's houseboat, and as anticipated, it was one of the highlights of our trip. The space was perfect. The kids had their own bunkroom, the family room space was comfortable and roomy, the beds were quite comfortable, and the electric fireplace made the whole space quite cozy. The upper seating area was the perfect place for both breakfast and to relax at the end of the day with fabulous views of the Space Needle and city, and there were options for food within walking distance. We even borrowed Bill's kayak for a short spin along the lake and were treated with a rainbow. Bill was a fantastic host and was responsive, welcoming, and accommodating. A wonderful stay!

A little slice of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the privacy provided staying on Bill’s houseboat and found it to be very relaxing. There are a number of fine restaurants nearby for dining out or, as we did, for delivery. Seattle has an excellent transit system and we made use of the bus which stops right outside of the marina. We would definitely consider staying again on future visits to Seattle.

We found our communications with Bill both before our visit and during our stay to be responsive and informative. You could not expect more.

Awesome place to stay in Seattle!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we really enjoyed staying on the houseboat versus another hotel and the view of Seattle's signature Space Needle from the deck of the boat made it even better!! We highly recommend this option if you are thinking about coming to this city and want to have a different kind of experience you will not be disappointed. Bill thank you for your hospitality we had an awesome time!!

Our stay on the boat was peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

My sister was totally blown away as our stay on the boat was kept a secret from her and she assumed we would be staying at a hotel. We had so much fun watching the regatta take place on the water in front of our dock and eating up top with an amazing view of Seattle. Thanks again for letting us stay on your boat. It was the highlight of our trip!

Wonderful experience on the water

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well-appointed little boat. Master bedroom is super comfy. The separate bunkroom would be a cozy space for two children to sleep but might be a little cramped as a bedroom for a taller adult (I am 5'3 and it was great for me). The owner was responsive, helpful and friendly. The upper deck is high enough to give you a view over the tops of the surrounding boats, including the city skyline lit up at night. Right across the street from the harbor is a bus that will take you downtown or up into Fremont/Ballard. Would definitely stay again!
