Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Houseboat, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Come stay aboard our FABULOUS houseboat, berthed in one of the most convenient marinas for exploring all that Boston has to offer!

We thought of everything so you don't have to! Our boat is completely air-conditioned and heated to keep you comfortable even on the hottest days! Our full kitchen makes meal preparation a snap with a full size fridge, microwave convection oven and cooktop. We also provide a Kuerig coffee maker and the pods for easy one step coffee anytime! All linens and towels are included in the rental as well, so no worrying about laundry while your on vacation! The huge outside roof deck is a great spot to enjoy a meal with family and friends, or a quiet cocktail watching the sun set over the water.

The boat has been specifically built for us, and designed with a renter in mind. There are 2 private staterooms, the aft cabin has a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress, while the mid ship cabin has a full size bed with the same mattress. There is also a sleeper sofa that pulls out to queen sized bed for additional sleeping options.

There is a flat screen TV in the living room area and the custom handmade wood trim throughout the boat gives you the overall comfort of a luxury home on the water.

The bathroom was designed to allow use of both the toilet area and shower independently of one another. There is a pocket door dividing the room to allow full access.

Location

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boston, this boat is just steps away from the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, the North End, Boston Garden, a large outdoor neighborhood swimming pool, a free tennis court, a public ice skating rink, and countless other things to see and do. Parking is also available for $25/day cash at the marina.

The Experience

We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, plus bathroom products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions. We even include condiments and a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffee pods for your enjoyment. Cable and WiFi are included free with the rental and the houseboat is fully air-conditioned and heated for your comfort in any season. All this for less than the price of the smallest rooms at any of the nearby downtown waterfront hotels

The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic view of Boston's city skyline! So come join us and float all your cares away on a SleepAfloat Constellation Condo!

We loved the privacy and quiet if our weekend. The boat is clean and a unique experience. The top balcony is where we spent mornings drinking coffee and talking. I slept better than I have in months in the boat too! Definitely try it again!

What we expected

  • 4 of 5
The place was nice. It got a little crowded with 4 guys stepping over each other. We had to put all the suitcases in the master room because space was limited. But we knew what we were getting into. The marina is beautiful, many awesome ships. Amenities in the boat were nice and definitely met our needs.

Wow! Best Rental I've Stayed in!

Wow! Best Rental I've Stayed in!
  • 5 of 5
We come to Hollywood a lot to see family and this was by far the best rental we've ever stayed in! It was so unique and in a great location, safe and not far from the beach. There was plenty of room for our family of 5 plus we had visitors stop by and we cooked food and ate up on the top roof deck (best part of the boat by far). The kids loved staying on the water and haven't stopped talking about it since we got home!

Our family members who live in the area were also impressed. They had no idea such a thing existed! We'll definitely be back next year and we'll bring our dog as we just found out they are pet friendly too!

Thanks SleepAfloat!

Centaurus week-long visit

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 4 (2 couples) arrived for a week-long visit to Miami Beach where we stayed on this 700 sq ft houseboat. Every day a manatee family loitered under the dock for an hour or two, close enough to touch. Still, we were not in the wilderness as Collins Avenue was a few feet away with busy traffic at times. There was no noise inside the boat, but on the deck, where we spent much our time, we gradually got accustomed to the traffic sounds. That was our only complaint, but being right on Collins Ave. also allowed us to step out of the boat at a traffic light controlled crosswalk, and walk a couple hundred feet to our car valet station or into the Alexander Hotel. We loved the tiki bar between the pools where Micheline (chef 30+ years at the hotel) at the bar's tiny kitchen cooked the best fish we had anywhere. Willi and Alex, bartenders, were fun and half-price happy hour from 3-5 was welcome. At 5-7 the No Name Bar next to the famous Shula's Steakhouse was also half priced. All the staff, especially the car valets, were charming with the concierge always coming out to greet us "boat" people as the valets labeled our car to find it easily as we came and went so often. The beach was gorgeous, but we preferred our boat roof top deck to hang out. Security guards walked along the waterfront. Our accommodations were clean, new, and with free Keurig K cups and the easy-to-use Keurig maker (I had never tried this system) we coffee drinkers were happy. The water was smooth. A mile or two north on Collins was a Publix market, pharmacy and liquor store which you park "under" and ride up to on an escalator or elevator making both parking and shopping easy. Lots of small restaurants we enjoyed were there as an alternative to the hyper-busy South Beach area where parking was always tight as the action was constant–a bit much for us "older" folks in their 50's. Driving back past the high rise beach-front condo buildings to our houseboat made us feel a little special on Millionaire's Row as our rooms were more than water front and the most unique, I think, in all the Beach. We're more used to low key Florida stays like in St. Petersburg; however, to visit the action of Miami and stay for a week at reasonable cost in super-expensive Miami Beach I'd highly recommend the house boat experience. Different and budget friendly, with all the benefits of a hotel we recommend it for couples, families with kids, or for a get away for two couples like us.
