Escape aboard your own personal Motor Yacht in Alameda! Enjoy peaceful Marina living only minutes from big City entertainment and shopping. Rent a single room or the whole yacht. It’s your choice! See below, or our other room listings, for details.
Nestled in the tranquil waters of Alameda Island, we offer travelers and business professionals San Francisco’s most distinctive B&B accommodation experience.
Join us aboard ‘Penny Lane’, our elegantly appointed 55 ft. Californian. Leave the hustle of land-based lodging and come and relax in one of our 3 staterooms, or put your feet up on the aft deck and listen to nothing but the peaceful sounds of lightly lapping water.
You can have this all to yourself – or share with up to 5 other family or friends.
Be soothed to sleep with gentle rocking then awaken refreshed to a delectable personal breakfast menu featuring California’s freshest ingredients.
With close proximity to both Oakland and its wonderful dining venues and entertainment, and to San Francisco with its eclectic history and wonderfully exotic cultural diversity, you are never far from adventure.
The truly unique advantage of your B&B however, is its mobility.
Let us spoil you with customized 4-hour Bay cruises -- available when booking the entire boat -- to places like Fisherman’s Wharf and beautiful downtown San Francisco, taking full advantage of the world famous, and infamous, sights along the way.

We had a lovely stay on the yacht. It was idyllic and cozy just as advertised. Hemant was a superb host. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The marina is lovely and there is a nice restaurant on the grounds. We would certainly stay here again if in the area. Everything about the yacht was as described. A very pleasant and different experience.
We had such an amazing time! Hemant was so warm and welcoming. The yacht is full of beautiful details, and the room was incredibly comfortable. Hemant cooked us a gourmet breakfast that I will remember and miss for quite some time. We got to hear the interesting history of the yacht as well, and we had some great conversation with Hemant. Bonus: Suki the dog is adorable and sweet! We would definitely come back.
Put simply, Hemant was awesome. He was perfectly hospitable and a great guy. The yacht itself was comfortable and fun. We definitely will be wrangling more of our friends and reserving the whole vessel in the future! Thanks again for the gourmet breakfast!
Hemant was very accommodating and helpful. Our flights arrived much later than expected, but he stayed up and offered us food and drinks even at our late arrival time. The boat was gorgeous and our home cooked breakfast the next morning was spectacular. Overall great experience!
The best Air BNB ever. Right next to Alameda Antique Faire, this was perfect place to stay and explore SF/Oakland. Hemant was an fabulous host, and we had a 4 star breakfast before starting our adventures. Great communication, wonderful accomodation, this was by far the most unique place I've stayed in SF. Highly recommended, we will definitely recommend, as well as staying here again!
Amazing location to Oakland Airport, minutes to arrive, serene marina, gorgeous stylish abode, Hemant is the ultimate host, fascinating conversation. All communication was very clear, helpful, insightful on getting around town. This AirBNB is a couple of blocks from the Alameda Flea, and all the amazing things happening in Oakland. Breakfast was divine-
So if you want an once in a lifetime experience, stay at this "yacht-el".
We will stay here again for sure-
We were not sure what to expect, as this was our first experience on a yacht. The marina is in a very quiet part of town. The yacht is clean, well maintained and beautifully furnished. Breakfast was great, Hemant is a wonderful chef.
Hemant, by his very nature, is the ideal host because he genuinely enjoys meeting new people. We felt like we were visiting a family friend. We would highly recommend, and plan on returning in the future.

I'm from Alameda, Ca. I own a beautiful, upscale 3 stateroom/3 bathroom yacht that I would like to rent out on airbnb. I would like to offer the experience to anyone seeking to enjoy it. They could rent the whole yacht or any of the rooms available and enjoy staying on board! They would have access to great restaurants, stores, shopping, San Francisco City views, SF Bay views, beach access, convenient SF ferry services, 20 minutes proximity to SF, 10 minute proximity to Oakland, etc. I would like to open the accommodations to business travelers, vacationers, holiday makers and anyone wanting to experience something unique and fun.
