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 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.

Perfect

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.

Better than a hotel!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay on Capricornus in Boston. This sort of venue was right up our alley for a memorable experience. It was a surprise I arranged for my husband's birthday and blew any gift I could have gotten him out of the water (excuse the pun). We walked three blocks to Mamma Maria's in the North End for dinner, went for a morning run on the HarborWalk and enjoyed breakfast on the roof deck overlooking Boston Harbor. Many thanks to Marcia, John and especially Justin for pulling this off!!

A unique alternative

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 in our party and we were in Boston for the weekend. The accommodations were great. We were very happy with the full kitchen. It was warm and cozy and met all are needs perfectly. It was within walking distance of many attractions, which was nice. The only downside was parking, but we were able to park in a parking garage next to the wharf parking lot for about the same price. We Would definitely stay again.
