I really appreciated Jason's great communication before and during my stay. He offered to meet me at the boat when I arrived but I had read from other's reviews that instructions were very clear, and thought I'd be fine. Everything was just as I had expected and all the instructions were indeed clear including how to integrate my phone with the stereo system! He even provided coffee pods for the maker and fresh half-and-half. Thank you!
We really had à Amazing time on Jason's boat. The boat is really cool, with all the furniture possible.
Jason leave us all the informations that we need!
Really a perfect moment there... And the kayak. AWSOME!
Thanks for everything Jason!
Jason was very accessible and welcoming. He had a few normal maintenance things he was working on but we did not mind and he threw some local beer in the fridge for us which we had no complaints about.
We had a great time! The place is fantastic.
Everything from the booking of the houseboat to the stay was flawless. Jason was attentive and professional throughout the process. Neither of us had stayed in a houseboat before and we had a great experience here.
We arrived a bit earlier than anticipated and he had the place ready for us. The houseboat was clean, and the instructions for how to run the place smoothly were clear and simple to follow. (There really isn't much to it, just info on how to connect the bluetooth, how to reset a tripped breaker, etc). The pictures are accurate, you will get what you see in the listing. Honestly it felt just a bit bigger in person than I thought the pictures presented, but the photos do give you a good feel for the size. Plenty of room for me and my girlfriend. We found the bed to be very comfy.
The kayak is an awesome bonus! If you stay here make sure you make the time to head out onto the water. We only ran into one neighbor, and he was friendly and unobtrusive.
The area is nice, and we always felt safe walking around after dark. We decided not to rent a car for the trip and that worked out fine, as there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance, either on 45th or in Fremont (either is about a 10-15 minute walk). We got around easily by bus and Uber when headed downtown.
Big thumbs up to both Jason and the houseboat itself.
I had a great time. This is less than half what you would pay for a downtown hotel and no parking fees, that's what sold me when I was planning my visit to Seattle. It's a great location with unique accommodations, no complaints. Next time I'll plan to spend more time around the marina and in the kayak.
My friend and I stayed at this houseboat for a couple of nights, wanting to try something different from your basic run-of-the-mill hotel, especially in the summer months when hotel rooms in Seattle are much more expensive.
The houseboat is adorable, and very clean! It's small, but fine for two people who are comfortable with each other and don't mind splitting the bed. My friend and I spent a lot of time on the deck, looking out into the water.
Jason was very easy to communicate with, and responded to any questions very quickly. He left detailed instructions for everything we needed, along with a parking pass. We didn't rent a car, and ended up using public transportation to get to and from the neighborhood to downtown Seattle -- which required a bit of walking, but that's what we wanted. If you would rather not deal with lengthy walks, we highly suggest renting a car. This neighborhood has great walking trails (and kayaking opportunities, of course), but we've been to Seattle before, so if your main concern is hanging around downtown for the sites, this location is a good 10 minute cab ride or 35 minute bus ride away. That said, many buses drop you off straight downtown for less than $3.
A few things to note: the houseboat has no air conditioning. We were there on one of the hottest days of the summer, so keeping all windows and doors open was a must during the day while we were there, for the cross-breezes. The dock is also closest to the parking lot, so you'll want to shut your windows and doors facing the parking lot at night, but since the nights cool off considerably in the night, sleeping was no issue.
If you get sea-sick: the house boat rocks very gently. I hardly felt it, but my friend -- who does get motion sick -- felt it more. After the first night, however, we had both acclimated. I personally thought the movement was great at night, rocking you very comfortably to sleep!
Finally, the houseboat has a great entertainment center with a smart TV and a Netflix account. We found some scary movies to watch, bought some wine, and spent a night freaking ourselves out. Highly recommend!
I just finished a four week stay on Jason's houseboat. It was a great and uniquely Seattle experience. Two of the things I appreciated most were the Kayak, and the proximity of the Burk-Gilman bicycle trail -- I could commute to my temporary office or to the bars and restaurants in the Fremont district by bike.
Jason was attentive and responsive to my questions, but never overbearing. The neighbors in the Marina were friendly and pleasant to interact with. The houseboat is immediately adjacent to the Marina parking lot. At first I thought that noise from the parking lot would be an issue, but it was never a problem.
The only minor hassle was that the Marina wireless internet service was slow and sporadic. I understand from Jason that he may install his own wireless network.
My husband and I were planning a trip to Seattle for his birthday and came across Jason's houseboat on Airbnb. We thought it would be such a different and fun experience from the regular downtown hotel stay. Throughout the entire process, Jason was very responsive and accommodating with handling our stay. He provided very complete information so there was absolutely no confusion with getting access. The houseboat is very charming and cozy, and was the perfect size for us both. I admit I am the less outdoors-y one but we were able to balance that out with my husband taking the kayak around the Lake Union, and me relaxing on the comfy bed watching an OITNB marathon; Jason has a pretty sweet TV and surround sound set-up. All in all, a very memorable experience and we are so happy we went with Jason's houseboat.
Jason's houseboat was the perfect answer to our week long stay in Seattle. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. Jason had every possible detail written down - from using the grill to the Bluetooth speakers. The boat was very clean when we arrived. The kayak was an added bonus. Being able to see Seattle by water and poke into all the different piers and marinas was amazing. Highly recommend a stay with Jason. We are planning a trip back already. Seattle is an amazing place and staying on the boat was the icing to our cake!
The houseboat was a great experience and location. It was farther away from downtown than we originally realized, but there is a bus stop nearby (the 26 goes straight to downtown) and it is directly off of the Burke Gillman Trail, which is great for walking or biking to the UW campus or through Fremont and up to the sound. Having the kayak was great and a fun way to see Seattle a different way. The boat moved more than we had anticipated, but we adjusted to the movement quickly with the help of some dramamine and motion sickness bracelets.
A few nearby highlights: Asgard Tavern-about a mile south on the bike path, just past Gasworks Park; renting bikes from Upcycled Cycles on campus and going up to Golden Gardens (about a 6 mile bike ride); watching the sunset on Gasworks Park; kayaking Lake Union every morning. The bed on the boat was really comfortable and we loved eating breakfast on the floating patio. Overall, it was a great deal and an adventurous way to experience Seattle.
