We have owned boats for many years. We have a 55ft sailboat in the same marina. We love this marina and the slip location, when this houseboat came up for sale we jumped on it. Nothing like it in this or other marina. Very rare opportunity to stay on the water in one of the calmest and best located slips in San Diego Harbor.

Brent Melbye purchased this house boat in 2013

Absolute best view from the marina. Great location when visiting San Diego. Very calm slip and lots of sunshine. Walking distance from airport. Great local restaurants. 10 minutes from downtown.

The beauty of the houseboat is its just like a house. Regular bathrooms, Kitchen, bedrooms etc. No dealing with complicated boat systems, lighting, small bathrooms, limited view. This is boat has been totally restored and located on the coveted M dock in the popular Sunroad marina.

This was a great getaway. The deck upstairs has a nice barbeque, the best views, and its nearly the length of the boat. With the city lights of San Diego sparkling on the bay, you won't want to leave. Its a great place to watch the cruise ships come and go from a distance. You can tell when an owner knows how to make their place welcoming, and this spot has all the comforts of home. He also pointed out an awesome restaurant to walk to. Conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown. I'll definitely be back and would highly recommend it for an unusual and beautiful stay in San Diego.

Very Cool Vacation

Our family including our two kids stayed on the house boat in October for 5 days. First of all the location is fantastic. Could not be a better view of downtown, especially at night. Wow! The roof deck is huge with a nice large counter where we ate most of our meals. The marina was quiet has a nice pool and spa. We spent most of our time exploring San Diego including the Zoo and SeaWorld. I would strongly recommend trying this unique house boat experience. Kids loved it - Boat has a two person kayak the kids used almost every day. Lastly, the boat is very modern and very clean with a great surround sound system for movies.. Five star experience!!

Really cool and unique place to stay in San Diego

This houseboat is a truly unique place to stay, and my friends and I had a really awesome time staying on it. The boat is in a great location close to the airport and downtown, you have a 500 square foot rooftop patio to enjoy the southern California sun while taking in the great views of the city and watching planes land at the nearby airport, plus the marina the boat is docked in has great amenities including a big hot tub and swimming pool.

I pride myself on writing honest reviews, and I really don't have much negative to say about the boat. As long as you understand you are staying on a houseboat, and not in a five start hotel, and are ready for an awesome and unique experience, then you should love this boat. Some of our favorite parts of staying on the boat:

- The whole upper deck is a roof-top patio, amazing for breakfast in the sun and evening bbqs.
- The interior of the boat is very well appointed, new appliances and furniture, super comfortable beds, great sound system (out side too)
- The owners are super helpful and really nice
- There were five of us and we never ran out of hot water
- The marina facilities, especially evenings in the hot tub
- Central location, you literally can walk from the airport (15 minutes), or take a cheap cab, and cabs downtown are only about $15, if you have a car, parking is included
- Did I mention the rooftop patio? Such amazing views!

Some things to consider before you book
- You will be staying on a boat, there are two bedrooms, but if everyone is inside it can be a bit cramped. Luckily, the weather in San Diego is amazing and you can just hang out on the roof!
- There is some noise from the airport of planes taking off and landing, but it's really not that bad and we all got used to it, and it stops over night, but if that would bother you, consider staying further from the airport.
- There are three beds and a pull-out couch, but two of the beds are in the same room, and they are not full size queens or anything, better for shorter adults or kids. That said, the king sized bed in the master bedroom is huge!
- No dishwasher or fullsize oven, but there is a two element electric range and toaster oven, we managed to cook for five just fine!

To close, if you are looking for a fun and unique experience and don't mind staying on a boat, definitely stay here, it was tons of fun and you will not be disappointed!

Upscale, unique, convenient

My wife and I and our two children (ages 8 and 6) recently spent 4 nights here. We had a fabulous time, the boat was both comfortable and convenient. Parking is easy, and it is a shorter walk from your parking spot to the boat than you would have at any local hotel. Plus, there are carts to help you load/unload. The marina is secured both by gates for parking and by a large gate requiring a fob (the owner will provide) onto the actual docks. Honestly, it felt more secure than any hotel. There are two bedrooms, the master has a Tempurpedic king that was wonderful, high end pillows and bedding. The other bedroom has a queen that could accommodate another couple, but is probably best for kids. There is a small "second" room off that bedroom that has a very low ceiling with a futon, worked great for our 6 year old. The top deck is awesome, huge city views with a great bar. We made a big dinner up there one night. The only real downsides to the boat are (relatively) cramped quarters, compared to a regular condo. The owner is relatively new to owning this boat (he has another boat at the marina), but, having rented dozens of VRBO places, he is probably the most helpful and involved owner I have dealt with. You can rent this with comfort that you won't be disappointed.
