BEAUTIFUL HOUSEBOAT IN DOWNTOWN PROVIDENCE

Providence House Boat Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 4

Experience Providence from the unique perspective of your own floating house! Nestled in a protected marina in Providence Harbor, our houseboat is fully equipped with all the comforts and amenities of home! Our location is the most secure marina in Rhode Island. We are nestled inside of the Hurricane Barrier and are visible when driving along Interstate 195.

ASK ABOUT OUR JUNE PROMOTION!

Located in a very secure and gated marina, our houseboat is just minutes away from downtown Providence’s most popular attractions: Waterfire, Brown University, Johnson & Wales, the East Side, The Providence Place Mall, and the Providence Convention Center. Our convenient location makes it easy for you reach points of interest along the waterfront on foot. Go ahead and rent or bring your car, this rental has a FREE parking space for it in an off-site lot!

This houseboat is located in downtown Providence. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops. In fact, popular Providence hang outs are in front of the marina including Lola’s Mexican Bar & Cantina, The Whiskey Republic and Providence’s famous Hot Club. Other great restaurants including several pubs, an Indian Restaurant, a Sushi restaurant and the trendy Jewelry District are just around the corner. There is a grocery store less than a half mile away, laundromats, and a convenience store on the corner. Adjacent to our marina is a water taxi service that provides pick-ups and drop-offs to many local hot spots along the Providence Canal.

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 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 full bed, two twin beds in a sleeping loft and a full-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 well protected part of the marina. 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..

We offer different rates depending on the season and depending on the occasion. For example, we have a discounted rate in April of $165/night. Our standard summer rates reflect an occupancy of 4 people maximum for overnight stays. For guests looking to have a larger gathering, we offer a 'Function' rate which reflects having a larger crowd aboard. Function rates apply to parties where there are more than 8 visitors at any one time. Due to the wear and tear on the boat and the increased water/electrical usage by having more people aboard, we also reflect that in the rate and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please review our rates to see what fits your budget.

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!

PERFECT SPOT FOR ENJOYING PROVIDENCE ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
I rented the houseboat for a "boys night out" with some old college friends. The owner was super attentive, friendly, accommodating, and a delight to work with. The boat was clean, comfortable, in a secluded area of the marina, and we loved the proximity to the bars along the fox point waterfront and shops/restaurants on Wickenden St. Walking or a cab ride into downtown is very easy as well. And the price couldn't be beat! This is a great way to experience Providence a little differently.

MOST FUN IN PROVIDENCE

  • 5 of 5
I've traveled to Providence many times over the 4 years my daughter has been in school there, and stayed in many different accommodations. The Biltmore is great for elegance, others are convenient & comfortable, but there is no place else that is this much fun! Imagine waking up on the water, Canadian geese floating by your window, and walking down the dock & over 3 blocks to Coffee Exchange & Amy's on Wickendon, A houseboat, moored in a marina in the heart of Providence. Completely delightful.
It does sleep 6. My friends missed their plane & stayed over one night & we were all very comfortable, but i wouldn't recommed it for 6 adults for a long stay. If you are a family, i can promise your kids will LOVE you for choosing this place- the sleeping loft is a kids' dream.
My host, Neil, was incredibly helpful & friendly- really way beyond what was expected- without being intrusive. The boat was appointed with absolutely everything one would need. The view down & up river is spectacular. The only bad thing about this place is that it isn't available in winter. Book early. As soon as people find out about this, it will be full a year in advance.

GREAT WEEKEND ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed on the houseboat for a weekend get away and had a wonderful time. It is a comfortable, welcoming little apartment that floats! There are great place to eat a five minute walk from the marina and getting into downtown Providence on foot only takes about 15 minutes. We didn't use the car the whole weekend. I highly recommend this property.

HIDDEN TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
In looking for a place to stay for one night in Providence, I went to VRBO when local hotels required a two-night minimum. I wasn't expecting to find something as cool and affordable as this houseboat. If you're up for something a little different and fun, this is for you.

My husband and I (late 30s) were so happy to get a taste of life on a houseboat, if only for a night. The boat is clean and perfectly appointed, and the location was ideal -- we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go once we got in from the airport. The owner is a pleasure to work with. I would definitely stay here again if I get the opportunity.

To note: There's a Catholic church within walking distance, which was good for us since we're Catholic and wanted to go to mass.

Also:
There was a little noise from a nearby restaurant into the night, but it didn't disturb us; however it might be a consideration if you're a light sleeper.

NEILED IT!

  • 5 of 5
This place is a hidden gem. Neil was very responsive and great to work with in setting up our weekend. The boat is just terrific. Clean, spacious, comfortable, with great deck space and plenty of hot water for showers. We had grand plans to sightsee in Providence and ended up spending our whole day on the boat instead. I highly recommend staying here.
