Once you parked your car, you dont need to use it again..all great restaurants, bars, shopping are a minute or 2 to walk.
Very safe and marina is monitored with cameras.
The famous Boathouse Oyster bar and Red Door Saloon bars are right across and you can listen to their live music while on top of the deck. AJ's seafood and fisherman's wharf seafoods are about 50 yards away. McGuirre's Restaurant is about 7 minutes walk.
You can watch the sun sets and sun rises while on board. and do not forget the fireworks on harbor every Thursday night while sipping your wine on the boat upper deck. Wake up early in the morning and watch the dolphins swimming and jumping while on the upper deck
###just like your home, please treat the houseboat like yours...clean and throw out garbage and dont leave anything in the houseboat.. bathroom is in the bedroom, if thats a concern, then just book some hotel nearby### and I also give you extra key to the bathroom's marina just right across the houseboat..
##THE BATHROOM/TOILET IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL--BUT I RECOMMEND USING THE MARINA BATHROOM FOR COMFORT..SOME OF MY PREVIOUS RENTERS WERE FLUSHING TAMPOONS, PAPER TOWELS AND TONS OF TOILET PAPERS THAT CLOGGED THE TOILET AND MAKE IT NOT USABLE DURING THEIR STAY...PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THAT, THIS IS A BOAT, NOT A HOTEL (and do not give me bad reviews because of that or ask for full refund--you are warned before booking)
*** the one time fee of $150 is both for houseboat cleaning and pump out fee in which i have to pay to hire a captain to sail and pump out the toilet at the pumpout station every other tenants to keep the toilet working properly and not smell so you have a great boat experience***
*** $50 for dog fee ( if bringing one)**
You have access to the marina bathroom ..extra key attached to the houseboat key. Since this is a boat, the bathroom sometimes may smell during your stay but its fixable --hence i recommend using the marina bathroom if necessary.
