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 view of Boston's city skyline! So come join us and float all your cares away on SleepAfloat managed houseboat!

Perfect family vacation rental!
I had reserved the SleepAFloat boat for my family who were attending my son's wedding in Boston. They absolutely loved it and said it was the perfect location and close to all that Boston has to offer. They loved the fact that they could all stay together rather than each in individual hotel rooms. I only wish that I could have stayed there with them! I will definitely rent this place again. All my brothers, sisters and their spouses raved about it. Thank you!
Excellent location for all of Boston
What a great place to base ourselves from. Easy walking distance for exploring Boston. Great for onward travel. We took the nearby fast ferry to Salem for the next stage of our tour. The house was quirky but very stable. Stunning views.
Conveniently located for many of the points on the Freedom Trail, public transport to museums and Fenway Park, great restaurants and the Festival of St. Anthony. Comfortable beds, great upper deck for dining and relaxing. Thanks for taking such good care of us Daniel!!
Very unique experience.
The houseboat was all we expected and more. It was a fun, unique experience. The location was great! The First Mate, Daniel was very friendly and made sure we were familiar with everything before he left. Then on Sunday we had a water problem and he came immediately to resolve the issue. We would definitely stay there again!
Great place to stay!
We really enjoyed our stay on the White Elephant Houseboat. The boat is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. If you have a concern about the boat rocking too much, it was not a problem. There is a feeling of being on the water, especially when boats go by, but it is a very subtle feeling. The outside deck was fantastic. We even got to see fireworks from the deck one night. The location is perfect for seeing all of the sights in Boston.
We would definitely stay there again.
We were in town for a graduation. The boat was a perfect spot for my family of ten to be together. The location was perfect and an easy walk to restaurants, pubs and Quincy market. We would love to do it again.
