vacation rental description

Fun and funky houseboat located in the heart of Old City Philadelphia. The Historic Old City District (OCD) is a place of unique people, significant history, charming shops, intriguing night life, and just loads of entertainment. Come and find out why it's a great place to visit. The houseboat's eleven foot ceilings with exposed beams, ceiling fans and air conditioning, provide a feeling of spaciousness and comfort. A full size refrigerator, sink, microwave and cook-top stove makes cooking easy. It has a comfortably sized bathroom with a full size shower. The Master Bedroom has a queen sized bed, closet storage and a patio door leading to a private deck. Two twin beds in the sleeping loft are a great spot for kids, and the sleep sofa and aero bed provide additional sleeping options. The well appointed houseboat provides a calming respite after a day full of activity. Imagine relaxing on the roof deck, drink in hand, enjoying your own private sunset!

THIS BOAT IS RENTED FOR ACCOMMODATION PURPOSES ONLY AND DOES NOT LEAVE THE DOCK.

activities and attractions in Philadelphia Other Pennsylvania Areas

The marina location: The Piers Marina’s sheltered, locked gate opens onto Columbus Boulevard, a riverfront thoroughfare. Right outside the gate is La Veranda, a fine Italian restaurant. About two blocks south is the Moshulu, a retired square rigger that’s permanently docked as a floating restaurant. Between the two eateries is the Independence Seaport Museum, with its two showpiece warships: the century-old battleship Olympia and the World War II submarine Becuna. In the same complex is housed the Workshop on the Water, where professional shipwrights and volunteers restore old boats, many of local interest. These are but a teaser for the attractions that lie west of Columbus Boulevard. From The Piers Marina gate, it is an easy six-minute walk up a set of stairs and across a bridge to the bus stop at the corner of Second and Market streets, the hub of Philadelphia’s Old City section. From here — by foot, bus or subway— it is an effortless trip to scores of fascinating destinations.

Fun and Chic in Old City Philadelphia! : It is truly our goal that every guest have an exceptional and memorable experience, so come, relax away your tensions, inhale pure sea air and nautical vibes, 'chill' in an outdoor, relaxing setting during the most picturesque time of the year! Ahhhh... Think outside the hotel box on your vacations! With locations in 5 cities and quickly growing, come Sleep Afloat! with us!

Try a houseboat, Great Experience!

Review submitted: December 8, 2013   Date of arrival: December 6, 2013

My visit to Philly was work related, but decided to try a houseboat instead of a local hotel. I highly recommend the Pisces for business, friends or family. I was more than comfortable and felt very safe.I had no worries utilizing public transit and learned a lot about Philly. I hope to come back again with my family. Kids would love it!

Better than a Hotel!

Review submitted: November 12, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

The Pisces is an extremely clean and relaxing houseboat; the accommodations are nicer than many of the luxury hotels I've visited in Philly. The boat is sparkling clean, nicely equipped with a comfy bed and furniture, and nicely stocked kitchen (including coffee!). I called Jack the host at 7am one morning with a plumbing issue, he arrived within moments and could not have been friendlier or more helpful. I loved my stay there. I visit Philly a few times each year to visit my family, I will absolutely book again. Thank you, Team Pisces!

Unique and Relaxing Experience!

Review submitted: October 27, 2013   Date of arrival: October 25, 2013

I slept on a boat rather than in a hotel room while traveling for business! How amazing to spend much of the day working and then coming home to a room on the water. This is so much better than a "room" - you can cook in the full kitchen and relax inside or outside with your favorite beverage.

Jack greeted me and explained the little special features of the houseboat. He was very helpful and friendly.

The boat was clean and well equipped with common household items. Show up, unpack and relax!
