Unique Houseboat Vacation Rental! Prime Location in Downtown Boston!
Vacations should be about fun and what could be more fun than a vacation on a houseboat! Located in Downtown Boston, SleepAfloat managed houseboat Taurus is the most unique vaction rental around. And the best part is it's only steps away from the …
Booked the Boat about two months ago. Easy to do and Ryan and his team are responsive with questions. The boat is "nice" upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom. There were five of us and the space was good. Not alot of storage space though...keep in mind if when you pack. The place and marina are easy to find. Make sure you research transportation when you go into the city or leave Charlestown. Nights got alittle chilly but plenty of space heaters to keep warm. One thing: the toilet system smelled awful by day two. Called Ryan and he sent someone out right away. The smell still somewhat lingered the next few days but really nothing else could be done. I would rent from them again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this houseboat in Charlestown Harbor. My teenage son proclaimed it the coolest place we've ever stayed. Great view of Boston and walking distance to the North End. We'd love to stay here again.

"The houseboat was great fun. Ryan was amazing. Any time there was any little thing, he was there in a flash, called back immediately even late at night. We enjoyed ourselves and would do it again! My actors and I were all there for the Boston International Film Festival. We got dressed there comfortably and made it to the theater to see our film on the big screen. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!!

We have just finished renovating this boat, and are awaiting our first guests' arrival. As we just listed this boat, we haven't gathered any guest reviews for this boat. We do however have a TON of other reviews on our other listings in this same marina. Please check them out to see that we run a tight ship! Many of our guests tell us the best part of their day is when the return home to the boat. When was the last time you thought that about a hotel?
I would love to answer any questions you may have about the houseboat experience, so please do not hesitate to send me an email, or give me a call 413-652-1400. I can't wait to welcome you aboard our newest addition to the fleet, Taurus!
