        A Unique Experience!

        We loved our stay on the houseboat! What a unique experience! The space was large and bedrooms spread out. The beachy decor was adorable and tasteful. The boat was well-equipped with board games, beach & camp chairs, pool toys, beach towels, toiletries, kitchen items and more. The area is great with a wonderful sandwich shop and sparkling pool at the yacht club, hotel restaurants, and easy access to everything downtown. The views were amazing! We could watch planes, boats, navy ships, and seabirds! Thank you so much for sharing your cool space!

          Love this little houseboat!

          We had such a fun stay at this houseboat. It was bigger inside then I anticipated and very comfortable for a family of 4. The kitchen was a nice size too. There is no oven but a nice grill up in the pool area. We used the marina pool each day and the kids enjoyed it very much. There were a few inflatables in the houseboat which were available to use there too. We also took the kayak out one day and it was a fun bonus adventure. One thing we hadn't thought about is that there was no AC on the boat (we are from Alaska and don't have AC either). It was very hot in San Diego while we were there and the boat had a fan for each bedroom and the living room. The property manager was very nice and helpful when we had questions. The next time we are in SD we would definitely stay here again if it was available!

          5/5 Excellent

            Just fun!

            Great location, very safe and lots of restaurants close by. You are also close to San Diego and sea world. Great launching pad. We loved the tranquility of staying in the houseboat. We were close to everything but yet in a peaceful space. The houseboat is lovely and quirky fun! I would definitely stay again.

            5/5 Excellent

              Great location with all the comforts of home!

              We really loved our 5 days on the floating house and will definitely be back again. Totally stocked and so clean with treats when we arrived! Just be prepared if your a light sleeper for loud planes taking off early in the morning, but it didn't bother us much. So much to do within a few miles making it super convenient! Thank you David and Stephanie!
