Balaton - Balatonfüred sailboat to stay :)
Rent a sailboat for cheapest price!
Within a 10-minute walk you can reach from the Balatonfüred Train / BUS Station.
Hotel Uni is a retro, 3-star hotel with marina. The marina is next to the center of the city Balatonfüred, in neighborhood with Tagore promenade. The hotel is in the waterside. In this marina are our sailboat Limbó.
From our pier, a few step is a bufe and a restaurant. The restaurant serves typical Hungarian specialities and international cuisine. There is also a barbecue terrace and a beach bar.
The boat itself has 3 beds to sleep 2x2 and 1x1. So 4-5 sized family can stay safely, the best option for 4 person. You have closed bedroom for 2 in the front of the boat and a room for 2+1 in the middle of the boat.
Toalett, shared shower and shared cooking possibilites with shared fridges are next to the marina. We have a built in fridge in the boat behind the stairs.
Sorry to say but the boat is not available to sail without having "Sailing Certificate for Lakes". Currently we have no available captain/skipper to take you a guided tour.
I can recommend our partner who organize sailing tours 2-4 hours ()
If you would like to sail, you need to hire a recommended skipper, but it is absolutely optional and have extra charge. (55 EUR/tour)
Interaction with Guests
Interaction is very limited, I'm available sometimes during the weekends, but during the weekdays i'm working in Budapest. Having a beer before/after your journey in Budapest is absolutely welcomed :)
The host was unable to meet us but we knew this beforehand as he made it clear that he was away and that was fine. However, if I was him I wouldnt of met us either as the interior of the boat was not clean, the bedding looked used, the sink was dirty, the fridge was dirty, there is no way to lock the boat thus we wouldnt feel comfortable leaving anything there, the drawers and cupboards were just full of half used soaps, dirty plastic cutlery and basically junk. The electronics were not really working, we had to fiddle around with a switch to get the fridge working, internal lights didnt work.
Basically although we paid for 2 nights but we stayed in total on the boat around 20 mins and checked into a hotel. We didnt expect the QE2 but some effort and cleanliness made by the "Host" would of been nice. I couldnt reccommend this to anyone. It was trully disapointing and a complete rip off.
"Limbó" is located in a cozy harbor, very close to the center of Balatonfüred and the promenade. Swimming in lake Balaton is also only a few steps away.
Ádám's ship is very nice and fully available for sailing given that you either have the necessary license or you hire a professional captain (ask the host for available captain's contact details).
Fully recommended experience.
I was booking Limbo for myself, my girl and her two kids ( 2 & 4 years old ).
The boat was nice, Adam sent us previously informations on how to reach the boat, and restaurants around.
He actually came from Budapest to welcome us, gave us a little tour of the facility, and offered to visit the surroundings which we declined because it was time for lunch for the kids.
Boat is nice for 2 adults + 2 kids, surroundings are perfect ! We loved it !
We've spent nice two days at Adam's sailboat. It's in great location with private beach at the center of Balatonfured. Common support buildings (toilet, shower) are moderate, but it is ok for few days.
Not recommanded. Except the wonderful location, this doesn't fit with the spirit of airbnb. No clean before our arrival , no sheet,nothing to cook (not even a glass). To sum up,only a roof against the rain! Our worst airbnb experience
I recommend. I had a positive experience. Adam was helpful and the boat was as described.
Living in Budapest and like to travel around the world.
Been 5 weeks in India, Bangalore.
Traveled 2 weeks in Bayern Germany, North-Italy.
Visited Amsterdam, Paris, London for long weekends.
Worked in Ukraine and Congo.
I love to meet new people all around :)
We have a boat in Balatonfüred, and let you stay there if you want to enjoy the north captial of Balaton lake.
Hope see you soon!
