Fantastic stay on a houseboat
We finished our family trip to Seattle with a few nights on Bill's houseboat, and as anticipated, it was one of the highlights of our trip. The space was perfect. The kids had their own bunkroom, the family room space was comfortable and roomy, the beds were quite comfortable, and the electric fireplace made the whole space quite cozy. The upper seating area was the perfect place for both breakfast and to relax at the end of the day with fabulous views of the Space Needle and city, and there were options for food within walking distance. We even borrowed Bill's kayak for a short spin along the lake and were treated with a rainbow. Bill was a fantastic host and was responsive, welcoming, and accommodating. A wonderful stay!
Thank you Wendy for the wonderful review. It was great having you as guests on the boat. Please come back again!
Definitely one of the best experience!
I've lived in Seattle for more than 5 year but, spending one day here is definitely one of my most favorite one.
The owner and host Bill made sure everything was perfect and very helpful.
Thank you, Akhilesh - it was a pleasure having you on the boat.
Great location and well provisioned.
We highly recommend this floating home as a unique stay in the Seattle area. Get to see a lot of seaplanes also, which is great.
Cute and cozy
We had a great time on this boat. We've never stayed anywhere like this but we thought it would be a great way to mix things up during our exploration trip around the Seattle area. All the beds were surprisingly comfortable and with great bedding. It's tough to go from living in a single-family home to taking a shower on a tiny boat, especially if you're tall! So get ready to make some adjustments. They have a kayak and peddle boat to use, which was nice to do with our kids. If you're a small person or have kids you might want to bring your own life vest as they don't have anything smaller than a medium. The boat is older, I'm guessing built in the 70s, and it shows. If you're looking for something modern and fancy this is not for you. It's definitely run down in some areas but still very comfortable for a few days stay.
Ship shape! Everything was in order the host showed us how to use everything, it was great!
Can't wait to need a place in Seattle again!
Great boat in a great location
