  • John and Martha responded very quickly to my request to stay on their boat. It was everything advertised and more. I went to Florida with my daughters and they just loved it. There was enough space for everyone to have their own room and the marina had a pool that they loved to swim (website hidden). Pete's beach is a short drive from the boat and there was everything we needed nearby such as restaurants and grocery store. If you want to be right at the beach this is not for you, but if you want an unforgettable place to stay the next time you are in the Tampa/St. Pete's area then I highly recommend staying here.

  • Our family had a wonderful experience staying aboard La Familia! We were looking for something unique, with a little bit of 'space', and close to downtown...this was it! Despite 90+ temps during our stay, opening the upper deck panels on the canopy allowed the breeze off the water to cool us down. And if that didn't work, just go inside...air conditioning! The pool was also very convenient, the neighboring live-a-boards were lovely, and Jeff (the contact on site) was fantastic! We would highly recommend this vessel as a great place to stay.

  • My wife and I enjoyed the two days we spent on La Famiglia. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something different than the conventional hotel environment. The Marina is secured, safe and very enjoyable. Sites and resturants nearby.

  • Overall stay was a pleasant experience. Jeff was very helpful. A few observations that might help future guests.

    Zip code on our reservation was 37705 and GPS took us to other side of st Pete. Called Jeff who told us it was 37701 and arrived with no problem.

    Wifi would not work on any of our iPads or laptops. Not a problem for 2 days but if you need to work this might be an issue.

    I would have also preferred an unused bar of soap in showers and hand soap pumps working...I will know to bring next (website hidden) in galley is no problem but there is no table so again I'll plan accordingly next time.

    We are thinking of bringing our grandsons for the experience.

  • Great time on the yacht, although weather was not favorable. Docked at a convenient location with very clean facilities. The yacht was very clean and cozy. We stayed with our little ones and they absolutely loved their sleeping accommodations. We would most definitely return.

  • We enjoyed our stay on this yacht. It is well situated to experience the offerings of St. Petersburg. The marina is well secure and is quiet. I had some experience with staying on a boat and really did expect to experience some noise issues either from other boaters or just the banging of halyards and such. Neither happened. Be prepared for a cozy stay as you are on a boat. Jeff, who was on site handled our questions and gave us the low down on the boat and the surrounding area did a great job. The only issue we had was a odor issue in the cabin . We didn't know if it was from the cleaning products or what but it was a constant smell not overpowering but always there. All in all a very relaxing stay!

  • We stayed on John and Martha's yacht for the weekend and it was a perfect getaway! The boat was everything we thought it was going to be. Very clean and great marina. We would defiantly recommend to friends.
