Incredible. Noteworthy. Spectacular. Unique. Awesome. Magnificent. Shall I continue, or do you get the drift...? [See what I did there? Drift? Sea pun?] Do this. Do this. Do this. Such an incredible experience. I was raised on yachts my entire life. I still live locally. I forego my own yacht to stay here and enjoy the amazing hospitality and ambiance.... More

This is a unique outing, great for couples. Wifey and I have been several times and enjoyed all of the surrounding area. A great walk or sit on the back your Boat and read or watch the world float by. Really nice folks add to a great experience.

We stayed on the Pasta Too. It has two bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, living room area and an upper deck. It was quiet on the dock, since it was mostly couples. Jazz music can be heard from the sidewalk area that plays all day and into the early evening. The satellite tv did cut out alot, but the Yardhouse and... More

Just left the Sea Peepers this morning and already missing it. Great location and super friendly check in hosts. More space than you think. Shortish walk to Queen Mary was worth it. Lots of bars and restaurants close by. Not too noisy and we were there Friday. If I'm in this part of the World again it will be a... More

We were treated to a getaway from my folks and enjoyed a lovely night on the Sea Peeper! Lyndsey was a wonderful hostess, and we settled into our private yacht at Rainbow Harbor. Our teens and their grandparents joined us for the afternoon, as we sat on our back deck with an unobstructed view of the Queen Mary, lighthouse and... More

We celebrated our "25th" Anniversary enjoying a stay on the "Pasta Too" at Dockside Boat and Bed. We enjoyed ourselves very much. We were on the smallest boat at Dockside but it fit us perfectly. To do over again I would not come in the heat of summer unless you do like the humidity. Mornings and Evenings were delightful but... More

I surprised my husband with an overnight stay on the Sea Peepers. He loved it. We arrived a bit early and Molly gave us our parking pass at the nearby lot. It was quite packed but we found a spot. I was worried about leaving the car at the other end of the bay but there were no problems. I... More

We just spent 2 nights on Sea Peepers-what a great experience!!! Our boat was at the end of the dock so we had an unconstructed view of the Queen Mary, Shoreline Village & the lighthouse!

Thank you for your kind review- we think we are a pretty cool concept too !! And yes, sadly we do have to agree that boat bathrooms need to be a bit bigger !!
