About this listing
Stay on a 30' Catalina sailboat in Newport Harbor! Perfect for two or single travelers looking for something a little adventurous. It's like water camping!
An interesting and fun place to stay!
The boat is 30' long, 12' wide and about 7' tall on the inside. It's actually pretty spacious and comfortable. And super clean!
It's in the water in a slip in Newport Harbor. There's no wake in the harbor so it's pretty calm, but you can definitely feel some rocking here and there...puts me to sleep instantly.
There's a propane stove and range for cooking, a small coffee maker and toaster, icebox to keep things cool, running water, plates, cups, a small assortment of pots and pans, a full bathroom, stereo system, full power with outlets for charging your stuff. There's no wireless internet but I use my phone for tethering and that works great.
Although I do cook sometimes, typically I eat out...tons of great places in walking distance, too many to choose from a short cab ride away.
When I live aboard I use the showers at the Marina. They're cleaned daily, nice facilities.
If you're looking for four star hotel, this probably isn't for you. But since you're on Airbnb, odds are you're looking for something fun and different and this is that! It's like water camping.
Interaction with guests
I live in the area and will be happy to meet you there and show you around the boat! But unless you need me for something, the place is yours. I won't be sleeping on the deck or anything.
