My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time on Caryn's houseboat! It's so thoughfully composed and decorated, it's easy to forget you're on a boat. Although we went at the end of February, the boat was perfectly cozy and warm, with little fake-fireplace heaters and beautiful views of an icy marina. The bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen well equipped and stocked for the size. It was too cold to spend much time out on the decks, but we did bundle up and grab a bottle of wine to watch the snow fall on the roof deck one night! It was an excellent escape from living in the city, but still accessible enough that we could leave on Monday morning and easily get to work in Manhattan on time. There are great amenities close by (including a well-stocked 24-hour deli/grocery), and some fantastic restaurants within easy walking distance. We did have a plumbing issue arise due to the extremely cold weather, but Caryn was accessible the entire time. She helped us sort everything as quickly as it came up, and it wasn't a problem for long. By the end of the weekend, we never wanted to leave, and hope to come for another stay once it starts to feel like summer again!
I had an excellent time on the houseboat. Caryn wasn't there for the weekend but her husband made me feel very welcome. There were some issues due to the winter weather but her husband helped us so much and everything was back to normal. It was definitely worth the experience!
Caryn was awesome- very responsive and even let us check in a day early due to the big snow storm. Everything was as described and we had an awesome time!
My stay at Caryn & Sean's houseboat, was the icing on the birthday cake for my very indulgent, eventful, and peaceful weekend. First, Caryn immediately reached out to me after I booked, and was accommodating to my itinerary. After arriving, I was beaming, walking around the quiet houseboat, looking out the windows to view the cold harbor, and finding personal touches that made the place so comfortable. I was far from the loud city; and yet so close to public transportation, movie theater, restaurants, and shopping. Would I recommend this place to anyone, no, because I would keep this hidden gem all to myself, but I would praise this place to a select group of travelers looking for a clean, comfortable, and cozy space.
I'am very happy to stay here!
Didn't meet Caryn, but her husband Sean was very helpful and very friendly, he is very kind too.
We love the place, highly recommend to people who are looking for a beautiful place with beautiful view.
We enjoyed our stayed, thank you Sean!
Caryn war ein sehr guter Gastgeber, wir haben uns zwar nicht gesehen aber das checkin und checkout hat gut funktioniert, wir durften sogar einen späten checkout machen als sie keine Buchung hatte für den gleichen Tag- seeehr zuvorkommend und die Kommunikation um die Adresse zu finden funktionierte einwandfrei. Wenn man am Boot ankommt erwarten einem desweiteren freundliche hilfsbereite Nachbarn und schon ein bisschen was im Kühlschrank worüber wir sehr dankbar waren! Das Boot selber war sehr süss, sauber mit genügend Handtüchern, optisch so wie auf den Bildern und in der Früh wurde man hin und wieder von Schwänen besucht :)
Ich fand es sehr toll und würde sehr gerne wiederkommen! Die 1 h nach Manhattan downtown fand ich völlig akzeptabel da man ja sowieso immer Zeit einrechnen muss egal wo man wohnt - innerhalb Manhattan ist eine halbe Stunde auch schnell verbraucht um von A nach B zu kommen.. herzlichen Dank für Alles, hoffentlich auf ein andermal wieder, Carina
Positiv: Kühlschrank gut gefüllt um den Ersten Tag zu überstehen, sehr schönes Hausboot, ruhig gelegen, hilfsbereite Nachbarschaft, kleiner Supermarkt mit heißer Theke in absoluter Nähe, Bus-Stopp direkt gegenüber des Supermarktes keine 3 min vom Hausboot entfernt.
Allerdings würde ich bei meinem nächsten Aufenthalt in New York eine Unterkunft näher an der Stadt vorziehen, da man mit der Bus u. U-Bahn doch eine Stunde bis Lower Manhattan unterwegs ist
Looking for a private one of a kind escape to a friendly neighborhood, delicious restaurants, and beautiful sunsets from a houseboat? The hosts and neighbors in this quiet cove made us feel so part of the experience of life on the water in a very cozy marina.
Thank you one and all.
Sean is a great guy! I met him on a stay to Brooklyn and he showed me around the area and gave me great tips on travel. His boat has a lot of room and has a very peaceful feel to it. Being a NYPD detective, he is very professional and will treat everyone with the utmost respect. I highly recommend staying on his houseboat!
