La Nina added an extra element of charm!!
It is always a joy to return to Charleston. Having lived here 8 years, the opportunity to have a small home away from home, so close to my favorite haunts (and now some new ones) was just the best. La Nina was a great find on VRBO...not only the opportunity to live on the boat (which thrilled my husband)...but, Dara made it so effortless. Early December is a bit iffy due too weather if one wishes not to secure transportation... fortunately, the weather gods cooperated and during or 4 day stay we walked everywhere. A taxi to and from the airport was all we needed. The reviews on VRBO were spot on, minus the one negative one. We had no issues at all. Once you arrive at the marina gate you are a bit overwhelmed with which way to go...but, La Nina is the third boat on the left (steps away from the entrance...and, as mentioned, steps away from the showers). One evening there was an event at the Rice Mill which offered us live soft jazz as we prepared for our evening out with friends. We did hitch a ride to visit spots beyond the peninsula but Charleston has become an Uber town so it is my understanding you can easily get around. FYI there is a Publix grocery a little less than a mile, left on Lockwood. Thanks, Dara...we will be back!
Oh sweet Pam!!! Thank you so very much for all the kind words, but YOU made everything so easy. You are a great guest. We truly look forward to you return. I ma glad you got the chance to revisit CHS and see your friends again... 'til next time!
An Experience of a lifetime~ Perhaps a glimps of the future
From the moment we walked on to La Nina~ she was home. She is stunning; breath-taking. We had some lunch up top and soaked in the sun as all of our normal stressors melted away. Our Host were so attentive and freely giving of the best places to go and to eat ensuring that we truly had a wonderful experience. The Yacht is emaculate and has all of the storage and comforts of home one needs for a nice long get away. We also enjoyed the atmosphere of the marina and the community of people are simply out-standing. Dara is an excellent host and took care of any questions that we had immediately. We will look forward to returning. Again ~I can not say enough about this experience. Thank you for your hospitality and offering such a unique adventure to the VRBO community. Highly recommended.
Julie, you are just the sweetest. We loved working with you to plan this trip and we were thrilled you had a chance to enjoy our lovely little city! Cannot wait to have you back again soon...
Very close and convenient to everything Charleston! Highly recommended!
Thank, Ben! We truly look forward to your return trips.
This was our second stay in La Niña and Lord willing, not our last. Highly recommend!
We cannot wait to have you back next year. You're a pro now!!!
Great getaway weekend
The boat was excellent .. the people we rented from were awesome. This was my first time renting a boat . I will most definitely do it over and over .. it was a total success and we enjoyed every second of it .
Oh Randall...My heart is so happy you enjoyed your weekend as much as you did! We cannot wait to have you back again.
Boat is clean with good AC and very comfortable. It is docked in a convenient location at the marina as well. I did not meet the owner but she was very nice on the phone. I read other reviews and saw a complaint about a smell that made some folks leave. I'm thinking this was just the sewage tank. It is basically a camper on water and the summer heat will kick up a smell from the black tank and that is to be expected. If you have a camper you know what I'm talking about. The owner had a couple of bottles of Campa-Chem in the bathroom so it was never an issue for me. Also the marina staff are very personable. Will stay there again sometime hopefully.
Hey Matt! So glad you enjoyed the experience of staying aboard, as well as your visit to CHS. You are absolutely correct, staying on a boat is like a camper - just on water. Many think it's the Ritz, it's not;) But we alwasy try to help y/all have the best experience possible.
Love to see you again...
