About the property

Enjoy the beautiful sunset and watch Charleston's resident pod of dolphins as you stay on our 2 Bedroom/2 bathroom 40' yacht! Park for free at our fantastic location on the Ashley River and the peninsula of beautiful downtown Charleston, SC. Walk to a Riverdog's baseball game (single-A affiliated with the Yankees), or simply watch the stadium's fireworks from the comfort of the yacht's deck while sipping a cocktail. Cross the street to Crosby's Seafood to pick up some fresh fish and shellfish to throw on the grill for a special meal. We are right around the corner from the Citadel (go Bulldogs!), and minutes away from the shopping and nightlife of King Street. Charleston's southern charm, historic mansions, and world-renowned restaurants will be at your fingertips!

The yacht has a fully equipped kitchen (stovetop, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker) along with a gas grill on the back deck overlooking the Ashley River. In addition to the yacht’s grill, you also have access to a full-size propane grill located under a pavilion on the marina’s dock. We supply kitchen necessities, grilling utensils, and a fully stocked spice rack for those who like to cook. There are 4 flat screen TVS with two blu-ray players, and plenty of board games. No fear with children as there is a first class playground in the park adjacent to the boat 200 yards away. The Main Salon has a 40' Samsung Flatscreen if you decide to stay hunkered in for a movie night (the nearest Redbox is about a mile away). Both bedrooms have custom-made memory foam mattresses that feel like a supportive cloud. We also provide amazing down comforters and premium pillows. Take advantage of the boat's central heat and air, or open all the hatches and windows to let the sea breeze flow through. Fresh linens and towels provided. Cable and Wifi included.

We love our yachts and strive to create a wonderful vacation experience for our renters. This yacht is part of the Redfin Charters’ Fleet. Please ask about fishing and sight-seeing charter options including dolphin, shark's teeth digs, eco tours, and sunset cruises on one of our many boats. We are happy to create custom charters to meet your needs. We will gladly offer you a discount if booked at the time of making your reservation. This is a dockside charter and not a short term rental. By booking you are chartering the boat to remain at the dock during your stay. If you would like to add some time at sea we will have one of our licensed captains who is on our insurance to show up and take you for a cruise on this boat or one of our other boats depending on your needs.

We would love to share our favorite place in Charleston with you!

Fantastic unique and spaceous

  • 5 of 5

Agree with all the other comments - why would you spend almost the same amount for a generic hotel/condo when you can do something totally unique? The layout of the boat was very spacious and comfortable so even our 2 teenagers could spend time on their own. Also the convertible couch/bed was comfortable and big enough for my 6' 1" son. Do plan on Lyft or a car to get around, but almost everything is a short ride away. Huge thanks to Joel who went above and beyond in making our stay enjoyable.

A peaceful and more interesting way to spend a weekend

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a more interesting way to spend a weekend, this beats any hotel or condo. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings at the dock with comfortable accommodations and a short ride to the charms of downtown Charleston. Joel was a wonderful host, personally showed us around the boat, available via text for any questions, left us a bottle of champagne and organized a boat ride around the area.

Spectacular and exotic opportunity!

  • 5 of 5

The yacht is far bigger than the exterior photos suggest. It is a lavish, comfortable, elegant, and inviting floating penthouse with state-of-the-art amenities and a to-die-for location. Why would one stay in a generic hotel, however nice, if one can create a fabulously memorable experience by enjoying this thoroughly unusual and delightfully comfortable luxury accommodation?!

What a great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

La Dolce Vita was a perfect stay for a very special birthday! The boat had everything we needed including a bottle of champagne left by Joel to add to the celebration. Joel was out of town for the holidays and Martin, the Dockmaster, took excellent care of us! The harbor is really convenient to downtown - we ate in some fabulous restaurants, did some touring and spent a lot of time relaxing on the boat - The Sweet Life indeed!

Weekend on a yatch

  • 5 of 5

Depending on what you are looking for this is great. It is in the harbor close to town. Lyft will be there in minutes and take you anywhere. Evenings are nice with a sunset and mornings nice as well with the sunrise - Very quiet. We went with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
