Boston House Boat Rental Photos and Description

Fully Furnished Houseboat For A Perfect Self Catering Holiday!

Unique Accommodations with Waterfront Views.

Experience Boston from the unique perspective of your own floating house! Nestled in a protected marina in Boston Harbor, our houseboat is fully equipped with all the comforts and amenities of home!

Located in a very secure and gated marina, our houseboat is just minutes away from downtown Bostons' most popular attractions; Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market, the North End, the New England Aquarium, the Childrens' Museum and the Boston Convention Center. Our convenient location makes it easy for you reach points of interest along the waterfront on foot, via water taxi included in rental price. Go ahead and rent or bring your car, this rental has a FREE parking space for it! This is unheard of in Boston!

This houseboat is located in the up and coming East Boston Neighborhood of Boston. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops. There is a grocery store less than a half mile away, and a convenience store on the corner. As mentioned above, we offer a free water taxi service to the guests of our boats (normally $15pp each way) into Rowes Wharf in Downtown Boston. This quick 10 minute ride puts you right in the center of all there is to do in Boston. This stop drops you at the Aquarium, Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market and the North End.

Our location in the actual working port of Boston affords our guests the unique perspective of the historic Boston Shipping Trade in action. Watch the drawbridge open from your roof deck as barges and tugboats pass by, supplying Boston and the Northeast with the needed commodities for commerce!

This unique location is becoming a hub for working professionals. You may never want to head into Downtown during your stay. If you are able to pull yourself away, the multiple transportation options for getting into the city make it a cinch!

We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, plus bathroom products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions. We even include condiments and a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffee pods for your enjoyment. This houseboat is fully air-conditioned and heated for your comfort in any season. All this for less than the price of the smallest rooms at any of the nearby downtown waterfront hotels!

There is a master stateroom with a queen bed, two twin beds in a sleeping loft and a queen sized sofa bed for the living room. Additionally there is a full kitchen with a cooktop, microwave and full sized refrigerator. Off the kitchen is the bathroom, which is huge by boat standards. it has a full sized stand up shower, head and vanity/sink.

The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.

After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic views..

***Please note, we do try and keep this calendar as updated as possible, but please do inquire even if you see your desired dates may be taken. We have a few other options that may be available even if this boat is not. For our latest availability we suggest you check our direct site, RockOnRentals dot com. You can view all of the boats we offer in Boston, check pricing and even book right from that site.***

Thank you for taking the time to read about our houseboat. Please call or email today to find out more about this unique and memorable rental!

Guestbook comments from the manager
They say location is everything and with this houseboat, that is definitely the case! Our first time vacationing of this type and we were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and nice the furnishings were. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the upper deck and relaxing before heading off to an evening Sox game. Being right near the heart of Boston was fantastic and it's very easy to get around using the water taxi...or just walking. I highly recommend this for a different kind of stay!!!

I own a property management company specializing in yacht and houseboat rentals. I love the water and enjoy sailing every chance I get!

I carefully select the listings I represent, so you can be assured you are staying in a property I have stayed in and am confident you will enjoy.

I enjoy hosting vacation rental travelers as you are the most adventurous, interesting folks I have had the pleasure to rent to. I look forward to welcoming you aboard!

Ryan purchased this house boat in 2012

These houseboats are a great way to enjoy being on the water without giving up conveniences of typical shore based lodging. With direct water and power this boat functions exactly like your home, but with a gentle rocking that reminds you that you are experiencing something truly unique.

With free parking, WiFi and water taxi service into downtown you can experience Boston as a local, yet retire to your own roof deck at the end of a long day exploring and enjoy the solitude and relaxation only a boat can provide!

Rock on Rental ROCKS!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to give my 13 year old grandson something unique to remember on his “milestone” birthday so we stayed on a rock-on-rental this past weekend and it was such a blast…so out of the ordinary.
Three of us got in on a Friday evening. Ryan met us at the gate and showed us to our “boat” which was clean, roomy, quiet, safe and the coolest thing ever! The sunset from the roof deck was spectacular. We quickly made ourselves at home (lots of storage space) and grilled our dinner (finding all the necessary items easily), ate on the “porch” with little patio lights. The beds were soft and extremely comfortable as were the linens and towels.
We wanted to ride Codzilla (a must) and wander Quincy Market so Ryan suggested we use the water taxi (included in the rental price!) to bring us to the Long Wharf area. We called, gave them about an hours notice and they were right at our dock at the given time. Pick up from Long Wharf was just as easy (and you get a nice boat ride around the harbor).
There is a large grocery store just down the street, and smaller corner stores within walking distance which is very convenient.
I highly recommend the experience to anyone at any age!!! We will definitely be back!
Thank you Ryan and Karina for making our stay so comfortable and fun.

Super Place !

  • 5 of 5
A perfect place for vacation. We had a lot of fun and the place reflect the photos. It was just perfect and we were 6 persons. Very close to downtown Boston and to sleep on a boat is a cool experience. I recommend this place to everyone.

Loved it

  • 4 of 5
Loved the boat and location the only bad thing was the amount of people laying on the docks that did not actually stay on a boat.

Owner's Response: I wanted to clarify this comment so future renters are not deterred by the statement about people being on the docks that did not belong there. The date this occurred was the 4th of July. The dock we occupy has the best view of the fireworks and the boaters from the rest of the marina came down to the dock that evening to view the fireworks. Unfortunately it was a bit difficult to navigate down the dock with all of the extra folks milling about. This situation only occurs on this one evening a year.
Thank you for bringing the situation to my attention, I will make sure we do a better job of keeping the docks clear next year.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I vacation together a couple times a year, and this was our favorite trip so far. The houseboat was fantastic! The location was so great...we loved getting to use the free water taxi, it was so easy getting into downtown Boston. I can not describe how restful it is to sleep on a houseboat. This is the best sleep I have gotten in my adult life. And waking up to the sun on the water...what a great way to start the day. Ryan was an excellent host, answered all our questions leading up to the trip, and was super easy to get ahold of. Our incoming flight was delayed over 6 hours, and even though we arrived far after the office was closed, he still met us there personally and helped get us all settled in. Such a great vacation...we can't wait to come back!

awesome.

  • 5 of 5
the experience was exactly what it should be. ryan is SUPER flexible, easy to work with, punctual and responds to any questions immediately. the place was clean, nice, and super relaxing. it was easy to catch a water taxi within 20-30 mins of calling. or, if youre in a pinch a regular taxi was only 15 bucks into the city. id stay again, in a second.

cheers

A Fun & Unique way to experience Boston

A Fun & Unique way to experience Boston
  • 5 of 5
I stayed here graduation week from BU with my mom, dad, and husband. I would say this was one of the best alternatives to a hotel. Not only did my husband and I love it, so did my parents. I would recommend anyone to stay here.
Ryan was wonderful to work out travel arrangements with and he made everything stress free. He even went out of his way to pick us because the water taxi was out of service and we wanted to know the best alternative to get there. Now that is exceptional customer service.

The houseboat itself was wonderful. The pictures are exactly what it is. The best part was waking up on the water and having coffee to watch the drawbridge. (Being from Northern California this is not a usual thing). We would then take the water taxi into Boston. (This was also included when I booked my trip and was my dad’s favorite experience of the entire Boston trip). Haha. It is great, to go in the morning and then come back in the evening with the sun setting on the city. Everything about the trip was wonderful and I would book again with Ryan and his company.

While not as picturesque as other locations within Boston, this area is very safe and extremely quiet. The protected part of the harbor the boat is moored in rarely gets any wake or rough water from passing storms, in fact it is the location most boaters store their boats when inclement weather threatens. This location is perfect for anyone who wants to experience being on water but has a fear of sea sickness!
