Parking is also available for $25/day cash at the marina.
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!

“Beautiful morning sunrises & gentle waves with the comforts of h”

We loved our stay on the Capricornus! It had all the comforts of home surrounded by gentle waves, beautiful sunrises, the mystery of high and low tide (we're from the Midwest & don't see tides often), comfortable beds, and even a swan that came to the bedroom sliding door to visit every morning. The rooftop deck was awesome for morning coffee and for watching the boats come in during the evenings. We were disappointed that we couldn't stay longer. We had an issue with the Wi-Fi but they were very accommodating and offered to immediately issue a refund for an outside Wi-Fi service that was available on the boat. While coffee was provided, all of the drinking cups were plastic so we had to buy from the local Starbucks the first day and keep our cups for future use on the boat ... I suggest you mention this when you book your rental.

Check in and locating the boat was fine - it would be a bit daunting at night. The kitchen and bathroom were newish and lovely. The bedrooms were roomy and nicely appointed. The living room and dining area were modern and comfortable. The wi-fi and wall tv were an added plus. The upper deck was awesome - you can watch the boats go by in the harbor. The location, however, was the clincher. Within five minutes, you can be at the North End, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the aquarium, Rowes Wharf, and all the ferries, water taxis, cruise boats and whale watching boats. Perfect!
