Last night was such a pleasant surprise at Pier 2 in Emeryville. The Barkissimo is a Bed and Breakfast. It can also be rented for a private party. We enjoyed a beautiful evening on the boat listening to Live Music. Some danced. We met Scott, the owner. What a wonderful place! It is center stage in the Bay Area. Why... More

The stay was a surprise, and a surprise it was!! What an amazing experience, with some very enjoyable people! Scott and Max were the best. Scott made us the most incredable breakfast, and we learned about his life with the boat. I would reccommend this voyage to anyone that's going to be. In the Bay area!! You don't want to... More

Stayed in the Owner's stateroom for a night before heading to Napa. Ambience - Great The area is so relaxing and peaceful. The yacht is well-maintained and clean. The room is not super big (mind you, the height of the ceiling is not very tall) but it's adequate and cosy enough for 2 person. A hot Jacuzzi tub located on... More

We needed to stay near Berkeley and looked at all the possible Hotel/Motel options. Parts of Oakland are to be avoided and some of the motels in and around Berkeley did not inspire. The better Hotel options in Emeryville are quite expensive so we went with this slightly different accommodation, and we are so glad we did. It's small (just... More

Stayed two nights in the Owner's Quarters with my wife. The room was well-appointed, cozy and perfect. Wine and cheese on the upper deck was a great way to start our stay. Scott and the entire crew (Vincent, Max, KS and Maggie) were very gracious and helpful, yet not overbearing. There's no better way to start the day than by... More

Sitting on the bay, drinking wine, and watching Harvey the sealion was a perfect way to end our vacation. Next time we will avoid the big hotels altogether and go straight here. The staff was great and we can't wait to see them on our next trip.

The 1st 16 reviewers gave Barkissimo an "Excellent" rating and so are we. My wife & I had the smaller room which was well furnished and very habitable. We arrived on July 3rd with a few potables and edibles for a potluck. The upper deck of the boat became a BBQ, wine & beer tasting and conversational free-for-all. Great time.... More

We stayed at the boat for a couple of nights. The queen bed was comfortable, did not feel any movements and it was all quiet, so no complaints. The best thing - owners were so nice and gracious and even accommodated for our Vegan diet :-)
