Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay on the Delphinus Houseboat was unusual, enjoyable and memorable! As we expected, the space is compact and functional. Our adult daughter opted for the couch, rather than the tiny sleeping loft, which she would have adored as a child. The bathroom was functional, the kitchen was well equipped, and we enjoyed our morning breakfasts on deck. Does the boat rock? Yes, it does, gently most of the time, it was like sleeping in a waterbed, which my husband had back in the day. When other boats puttered by, the boat did rock more, but it was thrilling, reminding us that we were at sea. Communication with the host was excellent. Our check-in was smooth sailing! Donovan even helped us figure out how to use the DVD player and the coffee maker. The location was fantastic! We loved being so close to the harbor, and near to Fells Point restaurants. What was the best part? Telling everyone at the family party we were attending that we were staying on a houseboat. A great conversation starter!

Adventurous Acommodations

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Baltimore and staying on a houseboat added to the adventures. There were 4 adults and 2 college students (adults too) in our group. Each of us had beds and there was room to hang out together in the evening. One thing I did not expect was the rocking of the boat throughout the evening. It wasn't a problem, and was soothing as we laid down to sleep. I was worried that we'd be cold but the boat heated up nicely. Donovan, the caretaker, met us when we arrived and had the boat warm and inviting. He was helpful giving up tips for the boat and downtown area. The location is ideal. We walked downtown in minutes and had a plethora of restaurants, shops, and coffee houses to choose from. We ate dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant downtown that was marvelous. Others staying on houseboats (visitors like us and locals that live there) were very friendly. The only downside was the mattress for the pull out couch. It was awful and made sleeping very difficult and uncomfortable. There was a blow up mattress available but it was a single not a double. The mattress in the state room was exceptional! So much so that our friends plan to buy one for themselves. I would recommend this house boat and the company to others, in fact, I already have. It was very affordable, comfortable, warm, in a great location (parking was abundant at the marina - thank you), and a different experience for a weekend visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the honest review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay on Delphinus!

I will definitely pass this message along to Donovan and see if he can do something about that sleeper sofa.

Hope to have you on board again soon!

Great getaway with lots of privacy!

The accommodations were great. It was our first houseboat experience and it was all we expected and more. Lots of privacy and the boat was clean and well supplied. We will definitely be staying again as soon as we can.

Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful two days on the house boat. It was like being at home with the cable TV and internet. The boat had a gentle swaying motion. The bed had the best mattress I have ever been on. The deck upstairs had two lounge chairs and the gas grill out back was awesome.We could walked to local bars and restaurants. The 4th of July fireworks were right in front of us as we watched from the top of the boat. The local boat owners were very friendly with many dogs. The dock master was a nice man with 4 chihauha's He gave us helpful advice. The whole check in process was made easy with Marcia she was great to deal with throughout the whole transaction. We are looking forward to our next stay. We recommend this boat highly. You will love it just like we did! Pete and Kay

Unique Expericence

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and another couple try to go somewhere every year. We came across this house boat by total accident and are glad that we did. The owner was very helpful leading up to our stay and the marina manager stopped by to check on us and see if we needed anything while we were there. That the loft is a little on the small side better for kids but is still useable. It is probably better just to use the pull out couch. The weather during our stay was beautiful which was nice because we were able to walk to the local resturants and sites. Would definitely recommend!

The Bathroom stunk so bad and was full of flies - it was awful to go inside

  • 3 of 5
The bathroom, or "head" is a holding tank that stank so bad we added (at our expense) two expensive containers of "Odor Masking" chemicals from local marine supply store. Even with that and a lot of water, the odor and the flies prevailed. Other than that, it was just grand.

Owner's Response: I was very disappointed when I received this review, as this was the first I had heard of the trouble on board during the guests stay. We have a service that maintains our holding tanks, and we could have rectified the situation quickly had we been informed there was a problem.

I am available 24/7 during your stay to handle any issues or problems that may arise. We pride ourselves on making every guests stay memorable, but for the the right reasons!
