I keep busy in the computer industry but when I want to relax, I find myself out on the ocean. Either fishing, diving, sailing to an exotic destination or just out for an gorgeous afternoon on the water.

Magnificent to be floating on yacht, this is once in a life time (website hidden) none
We had a wonderful time on this boat! The boat is a magical wooden boat with all the character and charm of a sail boat. We spend the whole weekend on the boat and didn't even want to leave to go to restaurants. It was comfortable and very clean. Hendrik was great and very helpful with any questions we had. I recommend this host and his beautiful boat 100%.
This was a great stay!
Pros- fun inside the cabin, beautiful surroundings, weather was perfect, everything was very clean. Host was very helpful and detailed instructions. Easy to find everything.
Be mindful of- the bathrooms are a bit of a walk from the boat, but totally do-able and super super clean.
Had a great time on the yacht.
Hendrik was very helpful. Couldn't have asked for a better stay.
we r the first time living in a sailing YACHT, but seem Hendrik in busy work and have no time come to receipt.but seem we r little dispointment of living in yacht,it no so large as the picture showing. and facilities were not easy using, we r hardly make out it my ourself. language coming to be a problem.
but anyway, itz a special experience living here for one day!
A very special yacht in a very special harbor. Boat life has its sacrifices but your hotel room does not float on the water! The yacht club bathroom is nice and the beach is super close. Lots of great food within the harbor.
The boat was nice, though smaller than I expected. Be preared for a night roughing it, with shower facilities outside. It does feel a bit like camping.
Our trip was a hop/skip/jump event. We used Airbnb instead of over night hotel stays. We may be doing ourself injustice. This was a a unique place and we needed more time to get the feel for it. We arrived after dark, I do not recommend this, we left in the dark the next day to arrive at our destination. I wish I could have stayed longer. the Yacht was as described, and beautiful interior. Comfy beds this land lubber was nervous about getting on and off the Yacht took timing and agility. Bring a sweater was chilly near the water. I loved how the yacht gently rocked and feel asleep quickly, which is unusual for me. We saw a great big bird and watched him hunt from the dock. the bonus was distance from the LA area. We left disneyland and got to his place in fare time, other wise we would have had a longer drive to get out of town. Thanks again for letting use have a visit to your Sailing Yacht-sleep under the stars in Oxnard California
Staying on a boat was a unique experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The boat was just as it is pictured - beautiful, clean and homey. Watching the sunrise over the marina from the boat was spectacular and probably one of the most beautiful sites in Ventura County. The boat is close to the beach, restaurants, etc. Great location, great boat - great experience. Highly recommend!
Hendrick was a good host, providing me with detailed instructions for everything. The boat is super cool
Hendricks and his wife came with their toddler son and their baby girl. The kids were very quiet. They left the studio spotless and very organized
I have known Hendrik since 2003 while living in Santa Barbara and, boy, was I lucky when he bought that gorgeous boat! I had several weekend long trips with him and friends aboard it - memories to last a lifetime out at the Channel Islands, dolphins glowing blue while riding the bow wave, kelp forest diving around the islands, and late night evenings eating and drinking well under the stars. Hendrik is a very intelligent, fun, safe and conscientious host! The boat is fully equipped for an excellent evening under the stars. I cannot wait for my next visit back to California to meet up with him once again!
I've sailed with Hendrik and stayed on his yacht quite a few times, and it's gorgeous! The accommodations down below are luxuriously comfortable and clean, and it's a neat alternative to a hotel: the soothing sounds of water lapping over the hull at night soothe you to sleep, while the morning light from the porthole right above the bed wakes you up gradually and kindly. The head (bathroom) on the boat is a little tricky to operate, so it's great that there's keyed access to private marina showers and restrooms not 30 seconds away. Hendrik is a fountain of helpful tips and information for his guests. There are many good restaurants to choose from around the marina - eg. the charthouse - and the LA freeways are about 5 min. away if you want to explore further a field.
If you're looking for an interesting alternative to a hotel, and want to feel connected to nature without actually roughing it in a tent, staying on Hendrik's yacht is the way to go.
