We had a wonderful stay. Communication with property manager was easy and quick. We traveled with our two children. And had a great experience. We wanted something other than a hotel for a few night.
Adorable once we could check in
Adorable little boat! Would have given it a better review; however, our check in process didn’t go well. When we arrived at 4:30pm the boat had not been cleaned. We left the property and tried to contact the owner and property manager by phone, email, and text. We didn’t receive a response until an hour later. We were told it would be cleaned ASAP, but when we returned at 8pm the cleaners were still there. By the time we got on the boat to settle in, it was already dark. This was very disappointing because we were celebrating our Anniversary and had planned on watching the sunset with a glass of wine. We were only there for one night, so we were very bummed that we missed our opportunity. The view and sunset was why we picked that spot. The boat itself was very cute and cozy. Wish we could have enjoyed it more.
Glamping on the water
We stayed on the Turnip houseboat for one night with our two children. It is very much like camping—the online listing is very accurate. The fridge is nice and cold, and the sit-down sunken shower was a wonderful surprise! We stayed on the boat during some rain, and it was leaky—that’s the part that felt most like camping. It’s not a hotel, and if you go expecting some adventure, you won’t be disappointed.
Cozy houseboat with incredible views and close to everything. Enjoyed watching the seaplanes land and took the kayaks out in the morning. Not your regular stay!
We could not have been happier! This houseboat is so cute and charming. We only stayed one night but wished it was a week! Would definitely stay again!
Cute, quaint and rustic.
We had a great stay at this little boat. Had some concerns on arrival. The owner Emma was responsive to our issues. All in all, we enjoyed our houseboat experience.
