Tex was a wonderful and conscientious host. My girlfriend and I loved the boat. It's small, but perfect for a romantic getaway. The marina is safe and well-located in Berkeley.
Tex & Tiffany were great hosts. The boat is a romantic location that is cosy and well kept. When we arrived Tex explained everything and had shower & beach towels ready along with maps of the area and bus schedules. Great experience that I would do again!
Response from Tex:
Tex and his wife were very welcoming and explained everything clearly at the marina. The boat is small but a lot of fun to stay on and it gently rocks you to sleep at night – the sleeping area is quite small for two below-average-sized people but it's cozy and worked for us. The sunrise and sunsets are beautiful and the marina was quiet and seemed safe. Getting to SF is pretty easy if you drive to the nearby BART station and take the train in.
The boat is a unique and cool place to stay and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a more adventurous lodging experience!
Our 4 nights on board Anna Lee were very (website hidden) was a quiet time of year so it was very peaceful.Comfortable and (website hidden) many things to do from the bekeley marina (email hidden)nvenient to coffee at Doubletree Hotel was a big plus for us in the early mornings.The inconvenience of no head(facilities)on board was a factor,although the restrooms and showers were close and clean. We walked,road our bikes and enjoyed many excursions into berkeley and especially enjoyed our visit to the incredible botanical gardens in Tilton Regional Park.The views of SF bay were fantastic and so close to the (website hidden) is a protected harbor so the boat rarely moved.Tex went over everything with us and was always available for questions.V berth was very comfy with good bedding.We will definitely stay again when attending anything going on in berkeley...everyone we met in the marina was really nice and helpful!..the price was very fair.A great deal!
Tex was a fantastic host - the boat is well-taken care of and he makes sure you have everything you need. I especially appreciated how he made me feel right at home living aboard a boat for the first time.
My father and I very much enjoyed staying on the sailboat. We booked our week-long stay last minute, and Tex and Tiffany were able to drive to meet us at the Marina very quickly. They even offered to take us sailing, but our schedule didn't work out to go. Next time we will have to try it! Staying on the boat was a fun and unique experience. The quarters were clean and well stocked with the necessary supplies of linnens, towels, various kitchen supplies, and fun books about sailing. I slept in the bed while my dad slept on one of the padded benches in the cabin. We were both very comfortable. I highly recommend this sailboat! Thank you Tex and Tiffany for a wonderful trip for me and my dad!

Thank you for a wonderful comment!
We had a great time on the sailboat. Tex and Tiffany are nice hosts.
Our time spent on the water was very relaxing, it was just what we needed to end our stay in the east Bay area. The water is very still inside the Berkeley Marina till the last day when the wind shifted and the boat rocked more but we slept like babies being rocked to sleep. There is great walking, bike paths right there, and a bus that we took to downtown Berkeley where we could then took the BART over to San Francisco. It was a fun experience! Thanks, Tex
This was our first time using airbnb and Tex has set the bar to another stratosphere. Him and his wife are super sweet and had everything we needed ready to go upon our arrival. The washroom facilities were far better than even some hostels we have stayed at.
After walking for over 10 hours a day it was nice to come back to the calm waters of Berkeley marina. Waking up and having coffee whilst watching ducks dive for fish was an experience in itself.
If we find ourselves back in the Bay Area again it would go without saying that this is where we'd hope to stay.
Tex is a great and friendly host: shows up early, has everything completely prepared, and above all, is very friendly. Definitely recommended and would come back again!
