absolutely wonderful management team & location

Review submitted: September 18, 2013   Date of arrival: June 28, 2013

We booked for a week and were quite happy with the location. Unfortunately, the boat developed some problems that try as they might, the manager could not get repaired. He did try, he didn't avoid us, and he did everything possible. We ended up being moved to a nice hotel as well as allowing me to determine what a fair refund was. The refund was handled promptly. I fully expected to have a long drawn out battle over our problems. I couldn't have been more wrong. I would not hesitate to book with this rental team again. I greatly appreciate the way they took care of us, responsibly and fairly accommodated us, and made us feel that they truly cared about our experience. stuff happens, things break, but I can live with that as long as I receive the professional response from the management staff. I would love to back and would book with them again without a moment's hesitation.

Owners response: Thanks Peggy for the kind review! We were so sorry we couldn't give you the SleepAfloat experience you had hope for but appreciate you understanding the situation and allowing us the opportunity to make this right with you. Please let us know if you are ever interested in giving us another try. We'd love to have you aboard again!

Great location!

Review submitted: July 29, 2012   Date of arrival: July 2, 2012

The location couldn't be more perfect. We loved being on the harbor. Had the lower level bathroom not had problems which made our stay down there uninhabitable, it would have been a great stay. JJ, property manager was very helpful, apologetic, and proactive even on the 4th of July. They were very fair in their financial settlement and we would probably go back if everything was in working order, including replacing broken chairs on top deck. AC offered much needed relief! If we come back to Boston, we would rent the Kon Tiki again!

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: This review was left for our boat Kon Tiki which is no longer in the SleepAfloat program. The current listing is for our boat Lilypad (a different boat).
