The boat is fantastic and staying on it really makes the stay in Alicante something special. Communication with Santi was really fast and easy - he got back to my questions before we booked and our arrival was hassle free.
The boat is actually larger than the photo suggests - we wanted to sleep in a double bed and were pleased to see when we boarded that the bed space in the main cabin is an ample double. The galley too is totally well set up - certainly enough space to make brekkie and light meals - microwave too if you wanted and the fridge is really chilled. We didn't shower on the boat as it was December and the shower is cold - but you are less than 4 mins walk from the marina shower block which was clean and great hot showers.
Fab time - Santi really fun and friendly. Thoroughly recommend this experience. Gracias!
Splendida esperienza nella barca di Santi ormeggianta in uno dei piu' bei Marina della Spagna. Siamo arrivati alla stazione dei treni da Valencia con un po' di ritardo ma ci ha aspettato (website hidden) ha fornito tantissimi consigli su cosa fare o visitare, dove mangiare, in quali locali provvedere alla cambusa e di quali servizi approfittare in qualità di ospiti del porto.
Siamo stati molto bene, a due passi dalla spiaggia, a 5 minuti dalle ramblas, dal centro storico e con una veduta strepitosa del castello approfittando anche della tranquillità della barca, cullati dolcemente dalle poche onde presenti.
Un consiglio che posso dare all'amico Santi per ospitare i suoi prossimi "velisti" è di rendere la barca un pò più pulita ed aggiustare il bagno da cui esce continuamente un odore cattivo. Con questi piccoli accorgimenti e magari con una veloce revisione dell'impianto elettrico la vacanza in barca sarà oltre che indimenticabile, anche piacevole e sicura.
Noi siamo andati con un bimbo di 26 mesi e si è divertito moltissimo, è davvero un'esperienza da fare per spendere il giusto ed essere nel cuore della città.
Consigliato a tutti!!!
Santi is as host fantastic he hold me up at the stayin and bring me to his wooden sailship. The ship is a nice place where you havr your time for yourself. You ara in ten minutes walk in the old city and the beach. Santi is very helpfull and when you have a question you can ring or sms or email him
He gives you tips of nice places and restaurants. One critic point the ship was at my time not very clean but it was oké and it was at the end of the season. The shower and toilet building in the harbour is clean snd there is also hot water. I jave a nice time on the boat of Santi, thanks.
Santi's boat is great - has everything you need and is prime real estate - right in the middle of the city! Santi is a very thoughtful host and a very cool guy. I highly recommend to all airbnb-ers!!
Santi is AWESOME and his boat is really cool to stay on. We had a brilliant time. Staying on his boat is an experience not to be missed.
We had a fantastic time on the boat in Alicante. The marina is so close to everything and it was such a different experience to stay on the boat.
Santi was a really good host and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
I would highly recommended staying here!
Santi was a great host, really friendly and it's great that he is offering his boat as a place to stay. Would highly recommend this as both affordable and fun! It might get a tad warm in the summer heat, but even still, wasn't a problem with the facilities around, as well as offered in the marina reception. Thanks Santi!
Santi was extremely fast to accept and meet up even at a late time. The boat was classic and exactly what I I was looking for. Great to sit on deck and look at the city even during the day it's comfortable and plenty of shade. Would stay again for sure and santi is super friendly and helpful.
Merci à Santi pour son accueil chaleureux au sein de son bateau !
We loved our stay. It was our first time on a boat and it's been a great experience. The boat is super clean and very well equipped. Santi gave us towels and bedsheets, even toiletries!, so I could fly in from England to Alicante with just my handbag. You have absolutely everything on board, and access to the Marina services if you prefer a bigger space to have a warm shower. The boat doesn't have a door the shuts but it's well safe, in fact, we left all our stuff in there with no problems + the Marina has guards!! The neighbours are also very nice and they always acknowledge your presence, it's like living in a small cute village.
Santi is an amazing host: we went out in Alicante with him, got some insights for bars and restaurants and he was always available to chat to us (perfect English and Spanish) on the phone for tips. He's also allowing anytime check-in and check-out which is great, as we arrived super late on a Friday evening and left late on Sunday evening too!! I couldn't have asked for more for my weekend in Alicante!!
Oh BTW on the boat you might encounter subtle moves when other boats pass by (I guess this is normal?!), but for me it wasn't a problem - actually I'd say the opposite as the wave-liked motion helped me to fall asleep nicely: true sailor experience, haha!
