The space

Fully insulated and heated for winter! A/C for summer.

Unique houseboat with all the ammenities...

Wireless internet/TV with large screen TV in bedroom.

Safe environment. There are lots of neighbors and the owner also stays on the dock in another houseboat.

There is one full size bed in main cabin for guests who are comfortable bunking together. The furnishing of the front cabin is setup to suit the average guest mixture. In summer its a family with 2 small children, or, two adults who want more bed space each, or, two couples. To accommodate this mix we furnish with a four seater breakfast nook that folds down to a "Standard" width bed plus a round table that has seating for 4. For long staying single guests or a couple who on occasion my have a sleep over guest, we furnish with a small square table and 2 chairs and a futon type bunk (As shown in the photos)

This is a great neighborhood to relax in after the hubbub of the city!

Its relatively quiet (compared to other neighborhoods) with great ethnic food and shops nearby.

Get a great nights sleep then you're ready for the city again!

Close to Coney Island/Brighton Beach/Sheepshead Bay

There is no engine on the (email hidden)'s just for living.

Standard boat sized bathroom with fully functional shower (see picture)

Approximately 35 mins from downtown Manhattan:

We offer a free car service to and from the Sheepshead Bay subway station between 8am -11 pm

Getting around

We have a free car service to the subway and its 20mins plus to downtown Manhattan with service every 10mins from 6am to 10:30pm then every 20mins.

We are also a block away from the B4, BM3 Express and B44 Select bus terminus. The Select busses provide high speed service with few stops and auto green light ability. The Express busses are slightly more expensive and luxury motor coach type vehicles. The B4 goes to Sheepshead Bay subway station and Bay Ridge and the B44 Select to Flatbush mall (20mins), with access to 2 and 5 subway and continues on all the way to Williamsburg. The BM3 goes to Manhattan

Other things to note

Compared to Manhattan and even the Burroughs, the boat is in a very quiet area. This is mainly due to an 8' high imitation grass fence and the fact that the marina's is well below the surrounding ground level. This also protects us from wind making the marina very placid

Notwithstanding, we are next to a large cinema complex, 4 restaurants, a 24/7 deli with excellent prepared foods. A short walk away is an excellent beach situated in a national park.

Cozy, private boat. Gently rocks you to sleep when it is windy outside.

My husband and I loved our weekend on the shore. The house barge was exactly what we needed. The place was spacious and clean. It reminded me of my time in Europe. We will definitely be staying here again.

This is the second time we have stayed on this house boat, we enjoyed it the first time and even enjoyed it more this time, we new what was around to do and even enjoyed doing nothing at all. If you like being on the water with Brooklyn at your door step it's the place to be.

Loved the boat. Neighbours were lovely. Only met Angus on arrival and called once before I left. It takes about an hour to leave the boat and get to times square. So if you are out for the day don't plan in returning to the biat it's too far. Very peaceful . Loved loved loved it

Thank you Angus for a wonderful time. My family had a great unique experience and we would love to come back again for a longer time. The houseboat was very comfortable and fit my family of four perfectly. It was so quiet at night and you would never know you were in the middle of Brooklyn.
