Photos and Description of the Charleston vacation boat rental

Modern houseboat, downtown Charleston, with quiet/private/peaceful environment

About This Listing

Welcome aboard! This floating abode was gutted & completely rebuilt using reclaimed materials, sweat, & love. You'll find her spacious, comfortable, and peaceful. Enjoy coffee & cocktails on the large custom deck overlooking the Ravenel bridge and the harbor.

The Space

Very spacious with vaulted 12' ceiling in the main cabin (living room). Sleeps 3 comfortably. Lots of room to move around with a queen size bed in the Captain's Quarters (Bedroom) and a twin bed in the living room that's a day bed.

The boat is located downtown at Seabreeze Marina, just a short drive or Uber taxi from the historic district.


Q: Does the boat have wifi?

A: Yes! The marina offers wifi but it is sometimes unavailable or overloaded.

Q: Bathroom, explain!

A: The boat is equiped with a house sized water heater ensuring you get hot water throughout the boat. Enjoy a full-sized shower that offers 2 spouts.

The boat has a full sized toilet and we ask that you always use marine grade toilet paper (provided to you) to ensure it never clogs. Instructions for use comes with check-in.

Q: What to expect that's different

A: It's a boat. There may be noises and smells that you'd expect from a boat. Pumps, motors, etc.

Q: Will I see dolphins?

A: Almost 100% assuredly.

Q: Heat & AC?

A: You bet! There is a full sized heat & AC unit that pumps more than enough of both into the boat. You have the remote which you can set the temp for whatever you wish.

Q: Wave action? I get sea sick.

A: The marina has a sea wall which dilutes the waves. There is still a small amount of wave action and you'll feel a slight rock from time-to-time. If there's a bad storm or the wave action gets to a point that your stay is no longer enjoyable we will pay for a room at the resort which we get a special rate as slip holders. Your comfort is our top priority. This offer is only if there is abnormal waves. 99% of the time the marina is almost totally flat and calm.

Q: Handicap accessable?

A: No. You'll need to get on the boat which requires a 1-2' step and there are steps on the boat. The deck stairs are steep and you'll need to be sure footed.

Q: Space?

A: You'll find the layout of the boat extremely spacious and comfortable.

About The Marina:

This marina is 100% private, meaning you're in for a very peaceful houseboat retreat. There is free parking 50 feet from the boat and we've provided a dock cart if you need to use that to haul any of your stuff down to the slip.

Interaction with Guests

You'll be given simple check-in / check-out instructions closer to your stay.

The Neighborhood

Extremely safe marina in a private slip.

Getting around

Parking is free at the marina and 50 feet from the boat. We recommend getting around via Uber taxi or Charleston Green Taxi.

House Rules
