|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Romantic motor yacht in beautiful Marina Del Rey, minutes from LAX international airport, Venice and Santa Monica. It is a 1989 Searay Sundancer 34' with 2 large beds and one bath.
The outside cockpit is spacious and open, great to sit and watch the sunset. The foredeck is a nice area for sun bathing. The yacht is well maintained and fully seaworthy, available for day cruise for an extra fee. The inside can sleep 2 on each bed and 1 on the couch. It has a dorm sized kitchen with fridge, range, microwave, ice maker and sink. The bathroom has a house size toilet and small sink with shower attachment.
This little yacht is bright, clean, charming and a great size boat for couples enjoying a romantic get away, or family gatherings, or a group of friends outing for a day of fun on the beautiful ocean.
Guest can use the whole boat and have the key to access to the club house.
I love to travel around the world, learning different cultures and experiencing local life. I know how important a clean room, comfortable bed, convenient location (but don't have to spend a fortune for a hotel room) and friendly environment is for a traveler. That's why I am sharing my charming & cozy boat with you to let you experiencing the amazing floating beauty.
Mandy purchased this boat in 2013
I fell in love with Marina Del Rey when I first visited a friend who lives on the boat here. I like the idea of to get away from our busy daily routing and spend few nights on the boat to enjoy the quite and relaxing life style on boat in a beautiful marina. My family purchased this boat in June 2013 and we enjoyed every moment for our each visit.
Walking or biking to coffees, restaurants, and beaches. Enjoy amazing sunset and peaceful water. Close to airport and some major attractions in west LA.
The stay was nice, sleeping was great, having the showers in the yacht club not so great. There is a bathroom on the boat but no shower, and the women's restroom/shower at the yacht club was clean it only had one working shower and no water pressure.
It was everything hoped it to be. Rick was very helpful and friendly. He met us at the dock with the keys and took us through the specifics of the boat. We were not expecting a shower or deluxe accommodations. It was clean and cozy. The toilet, sinks, refrigerator and stove worked. We did not cook, but there was dishes and pots so that we could have. It would have been nice to have hot water, but that is coming in the future. It is an older boat and has some minor cosmetic issues, but the main concern I had was that it was clean, the beds were comfortable and no musty smell. I was happy in all these aspects. I would stay on the boat again. We did not need the shower because my daughters condo was within a 5 minute walk so we had a shower available to us.
We loved being on this boat. It was clean and very comfortable. The location is terrific. You can walk to restaurants and a nice "Ralphs" and it's right off the bike/walking path. We spent ten nights on the boat and would definitely rent it again. Rick, the owner, was very responsive to our needs. We will say that if you are not a boater, do not expect the Ritz. This is a boat and space is always at a premium. But, the quiet, the location and yes, the ambience is well worth it. The cockpit is large and having coffee outside in the morning is terrific.
Such an excellent and fantastic place, we family 4 stayed for two nights after Christmas. It's very comfortable and warm. Backyard is glassy ocean water when I woke up in the morning. Convenient to drive by many attractions around. Can't wait to come back next time. Thanks Mandy! - Kerwin Li
Mandy's place is very convenient and she is very respective. Great and best experience to stay on the boat. I would love stay again.
The boat is not as described in the listing. The boat is tired and in need of some TLC. (No curtain on 2nd bedroom, dirty cooker, flaking paint). The listing describes a toilet & shower. There is a toilet but it's only for emergencies & certain NEVER a number 2! Not a problem during the day (just an inconvenience) but at 3am, it's not what you want. There is a hand held shower head in the cupboard BUT you can't use it. To shower you have to walk 5 mins to the very basic (but clean) shower/toilet block.
Be prepared to lie, upon being greeted by the owner I was told that should anyone ask "who I was", I was to tell them that I was a friend of the owner. This is because (her words) "it's not a commercial marina and we aren't supposed to let the boat out. If anyone asks you are a friend visiting"!
Had we known all of this we wouldn't have booked!
Despite several attempts to resolve the issues with the owner, all correspondence has been ignored!
I share this boat with travelers who enjoy outdoor activities such as walking, biking, beach and water sports as well as enjoy the low lodge budget in the center of beautiful Marina Del Rey premium location. The boat has some necessary essentials but limited amenities.
