When we visit new places we look for lodging with local character and flavor. We also look for unique settings with high quality accommodations. Dockside Yacht Lodging is now one of our top favorites by exceeding our expectations and checking off all the boxes and more. We stayed on the Narnie O'Shea - a 46' Hunter sailboat with our 18-year... More

This was a fantastic stay for my husband and 2 older teenage sons. The Pure Vida is a very large boat. There is a large living area, a good size kitchen, a cozy bedroom and a large master bedroom with a kingsize bed. Two futons in the livingroom fold out. A bath with a shower and a 1/2 bath. Plus...

If you are looking for incredible and relaxing accommodations and service that are above any hotel, than look no further and reserve your vacation now with Dockside Yacht Lodging. The peacefulness of water and the conveniences on the yacht made our six night business trip an absolutely restful experience as if we were on a vacation. The owner Chalium is... More

We recently spent four nights on the Pura Vida and had a great time. It was so peaceful and relaxing, we'd have loved to have stayed longer. We spent as much time as possible on deck taking in the sights and sounds of the marina but there was plenty of living space down below and the bed in the master... More

Better than any hotel! Why look at the water when you can be on the water in first class accommodations with every amenity including ROOM SERVICE! The owner Chalium is incredibly hospitable - This is a truly unique experience you will always remember. Don't even think twice about this and book now before this really gets discovered.

If you are looking for something unconventional in lodging in San Diego, Dockside Yachts is it. (It is worth noting to anyone who has stayed in other Bed and Breakfast lodging, this is not your typical B&B. That's the appeal.) My wife and I are certainly landlubbers and have stayed at a range of hotels and B&B's on other trips,... More

If you like boats and seabirds and the whole marina thing, this is for you. If you just want a change from the normal big hotel scene, also for you. Our family of four got a lot out of this experience. Boat (the bigger one) beautifully fitted out, excellent Tempur beds, and a perfect little protected sun trap on the... More

My husband and I just returned from our four night stay on the Narnie O'Shea. We booked the rest of the family really close by in the Best Western at the Shelter Island Marina, this made for an awesome family trip.

We stayed for 7 nights on the Pura Vida and found it the most relaxing way to enjoy a place to stay anywhere. My wife and I had a 47 foot yacht to ourselves, no one knocking on door saying housekeeping, full kitchen, coffee, drinks, food on our own deck, fantastic views, come and go as we pleased.
