What a lovely boat. What a lovely location. What a lovely host.
I had an absolutely fab time aboard Selkie. And Dean was charming and knowledgable about both the boat and the area.
Anyone with boating experience will know that, occasionally, a boat may exhibit surprising behaviors.
Dean was incredibly responsive in ensuring that my stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
He even helped me mend my spectacles !
Thanks for everything. :)
Awesome place awesome view awesome host. Can't recommend this place more. Super convenient to public transportation, which is a bit pricey but pretty quick, so traveling to Manhattan is no issue.
Dean besvarede e-mails hurtigt og præcist og var venlig og imødekommende. Selkie (båden) fungerede fint og gjorde vores 14-dages ophold til en fornøjelse. Beskrivelsen af båden og omgivelserne var helt i overensstemmelse med virkeligheden. Bustransporten til NYC fungerede upåklageligt, 10-15 min.
It was a true pleasure to stay on Selkie! Dean was always easy to reach and very attentive. The boat was the perfect accommodation and we especially enjoyed the views, the serenity at night and the light rolling of the boat. Public transport could hardly be better. The surroundings include some decent options for dining and easy parking plus it's great for a run in the morning. The kitchen is perfectly equipped. The A/C works fine and is a real relief. Be aware that the showers aren't very large so some acrobatic is needed as on most boats. I would not hesitate to stay on Selkie the next time I'm in the New York/New Jersey area.
A nice little boat, with a surprisingly spacious, comfortable interior, floating in a private marina opposite Midtown Manhattan? What's NOT to like?? I would (and hopefully will) absolutely stay here again. The view of Manhattan is absolutely gorgeous day and (especially) night - you can see from the Chrysler building all the way down to the WTC.
As well as the two bedrooms, the boat has a little kitchen with seating area and a very comfy lounge with sofa and TV. You can also sit up on deck in good weather, which is just delightful. The restroom is tiny and the toilet doesn't deal too well with solids but the yacht club restrooms, which you have access to 24/7 are a few paces away.
It's a five minute ferry ride across the river to the 39th Street ferry terminal, which is expensive at $9 one-way, but there is also a bus that costs $2-$3 and only takes 15 minutes to the Port Authority bus terminal, very close to Times Square. Dean was only a phonecall away, should I have needed him, but everything went so smoothly that I had no need to disturb him.
Overall, a relaxing, scenic and different experience and certainly WAY cheaper than any hotel you might find on or near Manhattan. I loved it!
The location of the selkie is truly amazing - a view that is to die for! the area is quiet and very nice but with enough bars and restaurants within a stones throw so no need to go trekking off after a days sight seeing.
The views from the Chart House are wonderful - the food is good too. For the best steaks try ruth and chris's across the road - amazing! Best steaks in the world.
Never having stayed in a boat I was surprised at how snug everything is but enjoyed it nevertheless and would recommend to anyone wanting alternatives to the very expensive hotels in manhattan. Transport links excellent - bus and ferry both very nearby.
This was my second stay on Selkie, so hopefully that says it all. Dean is an incredible host, and if he is out of town, then Maria his assistant is literally a phone call away to help. The location offers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, and a peaceful retreat from the pace of the city. The ferry is two minutes walk from the marina, and while not cheap ($8.00 each way) it is an incredibly fast and relaxing way in and out of NYC. The bus and train are cheaper, and close by too. The rocking of the boat at night is so peaceful and relaxing. I will definitely book again. This is a unique New York experience, and adventure all in one. Cannot recommend it enough. Kaye
