This is the "Sister Ship to "Ventura Boatel". It is a boat so more like a large Floating RV than a hotel! There is plenty of room to sleep and relax. The boat doesn't ever leave the dock. You will get to experience living on a boat, but since it is always attached to the dock you will never have to worry about sea sickness! It is less than 100 feet to all the action at Ventura Harbor Village and also to the beach. Plenty of great things to see and do, all within a few steps from the dock!

The space
Our Boatel is on the water and permanently moored in the heart of Ventura Harbor Village. There are 2 staterooms, one with a very comfortable Queen size bed and additional twin size bed along with full bath with shower and one 1/2 bath front crew (kids) room with bunk beds. The salon has a couch, dining table and a TV/DVD for evening enjoyment. The galley has a full refrigerator, kitchen sink, microwave, Keurig Coffee Maker (comes with coffee) and is fully equipped with other small appliances such as Electric Skillet, Crock Pot, hot water heater for tea/cocoa/soup, plates, glasses, etc. There is a covered deck (fantail) with umbrellas for dining and harbor viewing.

Guest access
You have full access of our boat, but unfortunately it is moored permanently at the dock and is not available to charter. We will show you around then leave you to enjoy the harbor. If you would like to rent both of our Boatels, see our sister Boatel - Ventura Boatel right here on Airbnb.

Other things to note
Remember to pack light. You will be entering your "Boatel" down a dock and up a set of docksteps. We will give you complete instructions for our marine style toilets, but there are also full restrooms with additional showers and laundry facilities available for marina guests. The front room is 2 bunk style beds suitable for crew or kids 12 and over that don't mind a regular bed style, more like a real sailor!NEVER, EVER put anything down the Head (toilet) EXCEPT the provided Marine toilet safe toilet tissue. I know it sounds yucky, but Marine Heads are notoriously sensitive. Most recently, a Paper Towel was flushed and clogged the Head, burning up the motor, rendering it unusable for the rest of the visit. Guests who flush objects down the Head resulting in plumbing problems will be responsible for the cost of repairs. I can't emphasize the importance of this enough. There is a trash receptacle in provided for items like feminine products, moist towelettes, paper towels, etc.

Location

Ventura, California, United States

Ventura Harbor Village is a lively fun neighborhood with lots of great restaurants, shops and even a comedy club directly up the ramp from your Boatel. And the beaches near the harbor are some of the nicest in California. Ventura Harbor is also the best port of departure for visiting the Channel Islands, and is home to the Channel Islands National Park visitor center. Directly outside your Boatel, you have Ventura Boat Rentals where you can rent Wave Runners, Electric Boats, kayaks, SUP's, paddle boats, etc. If you would like to rent both our Boatels, also see Ventura Boatel on Airbnb or contact us direct.
