Justin's boat was so cozy and spacious and clean. The shower and the bed and the patio were so great. The location is private and sweet. We definitely recommend this to anyone passing through Charleston.

Justin was an absolute GREAT host. A Pirate's Life was everything (and more) that we expected. The boat was really clean and relaxing! We will be back for sure.

Justin is a gracious host and the inside of our boat was clean and comfortable. The location is not ideal for walking downtown. A unique experience for sure!

My husband and I stayed on Justin’s houseboat for his birthday and we had a great time! The location is great and the views off the boat were gorgeous. The space was very clean and well organized. We would recommend this place to anyone!

Enjoyed our 2 day stay. Probably wouldn't stay longer sure to the small quarters (as we expected). For cooking, there is a microwave but no stovetop.

Response from Justin:
There is a stovetop - and full kitchen - in every vessel we rent on Airbnb. They are plug-in style & stowed in a kitchen drawer. I wish Wendy had reached out to me - would have been happy to direct her to the drawer with the cooktop if she wanted to cook aboard during her stay.
