Ashley and her husband Ron live aboard a boat and both work in the marine industry. They love boating and SCUBA diving and their best vacation is somewhere warm with deep blue water all around.
I loved my stay! The boat was a great setting for some serious me time. It felt very snug and cozy the enter time I was there. I had windy, rainy and sunny weather through my stay and all of it was awesome!
As a host Ashley was great. She got me acquainted with everything I needed to know. She also provides everything you need for an extended stay. She really impressed me by providing laundry detergent so I could do laundry at the marina.
The location gives you great access into any part of Portland. I had the easiest time getting around for my adventures.
It was a different and wonderful experience to be on a boat rather than in a hotel. Ashley was the perfect hostess. Her explanations about the boat were clear, she is friendly, and she passed on a great tip while being in Portland. I'd stay on her boat again. Elizabeth
The view from the Zephyr of the Columbia River was breathtaking. Ashley was so welcoming and my children ate up the yummy cookies she left for us immediately. The accommodations were perfect for my family of five and all of our needs were met with what was provided. I hope we have the opportunity to stay again as we would really love to!!!'
We had a great night on board the Zephyr. It's one of the few places I've ever seen that when they say they sleep 8, they could really sleep 8 adults all in the same fashion! Think nautical bunks. It's not fancy but if you like the industrial look and a workman like place, this is a nice and affordable place to stay. I would love to go back in the summer. I highly recommend it.
Staying on the Zephyr was awesome. We loved the adventure of sleeping on a boat. Everything was clean and Ashley even left us some food basics for breakfast. We had a blast -- thank you!
Ashley was a great host, the boat had plenty of room for us and really made our trip to Portland unique. It's not for everyone, but if you don't mind going a little out of your way to have an interesting experience, the Zephyr is an excellent choice.
We had a great time! Ashley was very nice and it was a fun experience to stay on a yacht! It was well taken care of and quite cozy. Only 20 minutes or so to downtown Portland, but it was great to be able to "get away" within the city we were visiting for some much needed down time. Thank you!
Ashley & Ron were great hosts. We had absolutely no problems at all and staying on a boat made our trip. They even lent us a kayak to explore Hayden Island and the Columbia River with. You'd be hard pressed a more unique deal in Portland. Would recommend 10/10!
The Zephyr was the perfect spot to host a family reunion and going away party for my son who is headed to China for an internship. We cooked snacks and played board games all evening. The location is close to PDX which made it nice as I was departing from the airport the next day. I would stay on the Zephyr again. Nice fluffy towels, super comfortable bunk beds and an organized hostess who communicated quickly and efficiently. Thanks guys!
Lovely marina and enchanting boat. We sat on the deck for hours reading and listening to the sounds of the river. The yacht is very clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
