Great unique experience!

  • 5 of 5

After a 7 day California RV vacation we were looking for a place to park in LA for a couple of nights prior to our return home. I first booked the traditional hotel rooms, but James' boat caught my eye and in keeping with the theme of our trip thought this might be another unique experience for our group of 6, including myself, wife and 4 college age kids/friends. The boat worked out very nicely, had ample room and was a good value and incredibly relaxing. Adding the optional 2 hour harbor/sunset cruise was a great last night wrap up for our trip. James was incredibly responsive to any of our landlubber indoctrinations to boat life, and Captain Penn made for an engaging and relaxing cruise. The marina location was perfect for our Santa Monica/Venice Beach focus for sightseeing and shopping. Overall a very enjoyable and unique experience!

Neat Alternative to a Hotel

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to try staying on a boat instead of a hotel room so this is the one we chose. It was really neat, had a lot of room to hang out and all of the amenities needed to live. We were in walking distance from Venice Beach and a short Uber ride from all sorts of nice places to eat/drink. It was a cool experience and we did not get sea sick or anything like that. The only thing I will say is that it was an 'interesting experience' using the boat bathroom...I need more space!

On another note, we did take the optional added 2 hour sunset cruise. The captain was great and the host couple was nice and accommodating, but it is not your typical Sunset Cruise. We stayed in the Marina and cruised at 5 knots the whole time...we understood because the weather was a little cold and windy, so that made it rough in the ocean. I wouldn't have minded the trolling trip, for a cheaper price.

Just Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay on the Yacht, It was very clean and had all the comforts of home. It was my husband's and I first time and we will for sure do it again. The owner James was kind and easy to talk to, he walked us around and showed us all the things we should know about our stay, We also elected to do a sunset cruise on the same Yacht and saw Dolphins ! It couldn't of been more relaxing and beautiful. I actually felt like we rested on this trip! James made us feel like family.

Very well located and impressive view

  • 5 of 5

James was a fantastic host. He was always responding to my mails ans texts. I was worried that the room wouldn't be available, because James didn't have real picture of the place, and I read from a previous vistiors that he has had a bad experience with James. I kept texting James to make sure it was going to be real, and James reassured me by calling the hotel. I really wanted to meet James, because he appears to be a very nice guy. Too bad we didn't succeed at that. A part from my experience, the place is awsome, even Donald Trump made a visit, plus Justin Timberlake. The amenities are superb, the pool was great. They offer shuttle to center strip. I definitely would love to go back again. My girlfriend was really amazed by the place. Well equipped with juice mixer, pots pans, fridge. Thank you James
