Very fun experience on a boat, specially if you are looking for a chill escape for a week end. The boat is very clean and Mandy, the host was really helpful and nice.
Mandy was super easy to work with and fast to respond to any questions or requests. The boat is surprisingly spacious and EXCEPTIONALLY clean. You *are* still on a boat, so the experience will be more akin to camping or staying in a really nice RV, but if you're the adventurous type it's a lot of fun.
Pros and Cons
The space on the boat was great. Didn't feel cramped or that my friend and I were on top of each other. The Marina was very convenient and walkable to grocery and a great little plaza. The Marina was great to wake up from and watch the sunset. There were plenty enough towels and kitchen wear. Parking was plentiful, but if your staying over 4th of July beware of street closure. Mandy is really nice and tries her best to help. You can't beat the price.
Check in was not very good, Mandy knew I was going to be there around 3:30pm and luckily her friend Rick just so happen to be outside to let me in the marina and direct me to her boat. I was already on the boat but Mandy was stuck in traffic on the other side of LA and didn't arrive till 7:30pm.
The bathroom did not fully work. And by day 5 the water ran out and you couldn't use the bathroom or sink at all. I was told I had to fill up the water but when I was ready to do so I never received a response. Turns out she had asked her friend Rick to help but he never showed so the last two nights I was without water.
By day 3 or 4 the power outlets started to lose charge. I pushed a button to reset the power and it worked a couple of time but sometime when I would leave things to charge when I'd come back I'd find the power had stopped and my electronics weren't charging. Luckily I had my laptop and many times I just plugged our phones into my laptop to charge. Eventually my laptop died. Rick had to be called in once again to try and resolve the issue which by day 4-5 was resolved.
The boat says it is Sea Worthy, but there seemed to be engine problems or insurance problems. I got two different stories so not sure which one is true or both. I did know before arriving that the boat was not going to be taken on the water. So if you are hoping to take the boat out you may want to look at other options.
I think staying on a boat was a fantastic experience. Can't say I'd stay on Mandy's boat again, but "living" on a boat was a lot of fun and I do thank Mandy for sharing her boat at all.
It was a great experience. We enjoyed it very much. We would do it again.
God beliggenhet med tanke på Venice beach. Forsidebildet stemmer ikke med den faktiske båten. Innvendig rent og funksjonelt. Er du vant til båt er dette et greit alternativ for sentral beliggenhet.
