The Experience:

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!

Why marcia sleepafloat chose Boston

Capricornus is a fabulous rental. It's unlike anything else you will find in downtown Boston, not only is it modern and spacious but it's docked right on the water in downtown Boston! The boat is within walking distance to most tourist attractions and several subway stations.

What makes this house unique

You are staying literally on the water. Enough said.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I recommend it to anyone ! It's such a cool experience and very comfortable to sleep on a boat. We used the BBQ and had breakfast on the roof of the boat. The location is great and it was clean. Id go back there next time I go to Boston.

Great overall experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time on a houseboat and I wasn't sure what to expect. I looked around for hotels in the north end area and couldn't believe the prices. Then I started looking around on vrbo and stumbled upon this concept. I couldn't believe the price for the location. You essentially get a 2 br 1 bath small apartment in the heart of the north end for half the price of a tiny hotel room. When we arrived the guy (can't remember his name) was very nice and as soon as he found out we had never been to Boston before he gave us a quick rundown of the area and where the different things were.

I was a little worried about movement and if that would make me sick but it didn't. There wasn't much movement but enough to help me sleep really well. It was a very quiet peaceful stay. The boat was very clean and well kept. The location was a couple blocks from all the Italian restaurants but my favorite meal came steps away from the tiny seafood place with the best clam chowder ever. You are also a 5 minute walk from subway station. It's an ideal location.

I plan on visiting again to return to Fenway, because that's the most amazing place on Earth, and I will definitely stay here again.

Glad we found it!

Was the perfect accommodation for a weekend in Boston. Clean, comfortable, had everything we needed.

Can't beat the location or the roof top deck.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a great time staying on this houseboat. It's in a great location in downtown Boston, close to everything we wanted to do and had enough space for our family of 4.

It's such a unique place to stay and the best part is the roof deck! No other hotel could give you this type of waterfront view. The kids loved it.

The only thing that could of been better about this stay was the weather. Boat was clean, had all the amenities and JJ provided prompt support when needed.
