A lovely winter holiday at Jicama
We were taken by happy surprise to be arriving just in time to see beautifully decorated boats heading out for the winter holidays boat parade! What a treat, and then we got to enjoy some of them as neighbors! Everything worked great, and the property manager/ cleaning staff person was wonderful (she was often around, which was helpful bc we had 3 different sets of contact info in our emails and on the boat... the only confusing wrinkle we encountered). It may be useful for others to know that you can pay for all day parking a bit farther down the pier if you'd rather not renew your space every two hours during the business day. We quite enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here or on another of the owner's boats again on a future visit.
We enjoyed our lil 2 day getaway just 45 minutes from home. Parking was challenging like in all BIG cities, had to pay every 2 hours ... would not take car next time. We had no WiFi at all, this was a challenge as my husband brought work to do. That being said, we heard back from property manager within the hour. She wasn’t able to solve the problem for us, but we were able to leave so hubby could make his commitments. The boat was comfortable and had the kitchen items we needed, but had to go buy our own paper towels, salt and pepper which isn’t usually the case at other VRBOs. Want a close unique experience right in Seattle? Try it, you’ll like it.
Perfect location to everything.
We were here on a weekend and parking in the Marina was easy. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed breakfast on the deck with a view of the city. Sleeping was comfortable for five. Bathroom facilities were small but we managed. Directions say to use the Marina bathrooms but our key did not work. Two kayaks were provided and we enjoyed using them. Overall it was a great visit and we would do it again!
house boat 4th of July
lovely. The fireworks on the water was amazing. The houseboat fantastic.
Pretty but hard work
Staying on a house boat is hard work...well, not really hard work but certainly harder than staying at a hotel, or even a home on land. You have to get your suitcases and drag them on the dock before entering the boat. The boat was nicely taken care of and the deck was lovely to sit on and watch the sun set. But you have to climb a ladder to get to bed and there was a slight sewer stench when the wind blew a certain way. The property comes with a lot of rules and we found the presentation of them a bit oppressive. Emma’s reply to my email once on the boat was as if a robot responded, not a human.
