Getting there and parking was very easy and convenient. Shaun met us out front and led us through a secure gate and down to our yacht, which was even bigger than we pictured. This was our first experience staying on a boat and it was great! So great that we've already booked another trip to come back. A glass of wine every night on the deck while watching the sunset was not a bad way to spend the end of our day. The restaurant close by was very good and would quiet down at night. I would highly recommend any one of Shaun's boats.
This was a delightful stay on a charming yacht in a quiet, sunny location. Everything was clean and inviting, beds were comfortable, totally family-friendly, and a cool way for us to unwind after a day of enjoying Oakland's treasures. Shaun was eminently gracious and completely available if we needed him.
Shaun was wonderfully friendly and welcoming, and he was always available for questions and assistance. Our stay on the boat was great. It's compact, but it has everything you need. Coffee on the aft deck in the quiet early morning was heaven. I recommend having a car - parking was easy and convenient.
Shaun ist ein wirklich perfekter Gastgeber, besser geht es eigentlich nicht. Wenn man einen Wunsch hat, versucht er ihn möglich zu machen, wenn er sieht, dass es an etwas mangelt, dann versucht er sofort zu helfen. Er ist fast jederzeit ansprechbar.
Das Boot war für uns die perfekte Unterkunft. Nach einem Tag in San Francisco war es einfach toll sich abends auf das Deck zu setzten und der Sonne beim Untergehen zuzusehen, oder das Frühstück gleich morgens in der Sonne genießen zu können. Auch die Möglichkeit mit den Kajaks von Shaun auf das Wasser zu können war klasse.
Zu zweit hatten wir wirklich ausreichend Platz auf dem Boot. Das Bad ist zwar klein, aber es langt und hat sogar eine kleine Dusche.
Bei der Ankunft hat Shaun uns persönlich empfangen und uns alles auf dem Boot erklärt.
Es hat uns so gut gefallen, dass wir nur sehr ungerne wieder nach Hause gefahren sind
A night on the boat was magical--such a different pace to our normal lives in San Francisco! We all slept super well in the silence of the harbor. Hanging out on the deck while playing scrabble and watching the sunset was pretty sweet.
The location was great. We came by bike from Jack London Square, and in the evening/morning, we loved exploring nearby Alameda.
It was so nice for Shaun to meet us personally and show us around on the boat. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Second boat of Shaun's I've stayed on. Great experience with excellent location. Everything is so close with restaurant/ pub next door that was perfect for watching the sunset over the bay.
