Featured on Tiny House Hunters, but far from tiny! Stays comfortable and warm in winter months and refreshingly cool in the summer. This floating abode was gutted & completely rebuilt using reclaimed materials, sweat, & love. You'll find her spacious, comfortable, & peaceful. The location of this boat is for people looking for tranquil, private, and quiet getaway. Enjoy coffee & cocktails on the large deck overlooking the harbor.

The space

Our boat was not impacted by hurricane Irma, come enjoy beautiful Charleston!

Featured on FYI Network's Tiny House Hunters!

Very spacious houseboat 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 in a PRIVATE slip at Seabreeze Marina. This accommodation is for people looking for peace and tranquility in a unique and beautiful houseboat. The setting of the marina is quiet and secluded. In your private slip, you'll have a stunning view of Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel Bridge.

FAQ:

Q: Bathroom, explain!
A: The boat is equipped with a house sized water heater ensuring you get hot water throughout the boat. Know, however, that you are staying on a boat. Long hot showers can be difficult. But you'll always have enough hot water to enjoy a 10 - 15 minute shower. The boat has a full sized toilet and we ask that you ONLY always use marine grade toilet paper (included) to ensure it never clogs.

Q: Heat? AC?
A: Our boats are equipped with BOTH heat and AC. No matter the time of year you visit you can be assured that you will be staying in a nice comfortable environment!

Q: What to expect that's different than a hotel?
A: It's a boat, it is a unique FUN experience. There may be noises and smells that you'd expect from a boat. Pumps, motors, ocean water, etc.

Q: Wave action?
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 work out alternative accommodations for you. Your comfort is our top priority. This offer is only if there is abnormal waves due to major storms. 99% of the time the marina is almost totally flat and calm.

Q: Handicap accessible?
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.

Quite a unique place to stay! Fantastic view, easily accessed, and quite secure. We enjoyed chatting with guests on neighboring boats, and always good to spend time in Charleston!

Interesting choice that a friend and I made. You must have a sense of humor and a lot of patience. We wanted an adventure and this house boat provided one, but was disappointing for us. All facilities onboard were not "ready for guests", light bulbs out, shower stall pooling and toilet seat wobbling, but were readily fixed by Justin who was very nice and very accommodating. FYI: The "lock" on the inside is a wooden rod that sits in the track of the sliding glass door. Curtains are sheer and don't cover the length of the windows, (except in the bedroom), so it lacks privacy at night if your hanging around in comfy clothes or sleeping on the daybed. The OUTSIDE LOCK is a padlock at the bottom of the door at floor level. Difficult to operate, especially in the dark, on your knees, while trying to use a flashlight. Wonderful mornings and afternoons became nothing but aggravation because of the lock situation. It's a fine location with a great view. It's quiet and cozy but not for everyone.
