We had been looking forward to staying on the Narnie O'Shea ever since reading the fantastic reviews on this site. Chaluim, the host, was too busy to meet us on arrival, and instead we were escorted aboard by the housekeeper, who was very courteous in showing us around the boat and answering any questions we had. I noted there was... More

We stayed 2 nights on the Narnie O' Shea, escaping a heat wave in Los Angeles. Chaluim, our host, met us on arrival and gave us a thorough orientation to the boat, as well as useful local restaurant advice. The roomy, beautiful, wood interior sailboat was perfect for our getaway. We watched the stars through the skylights over the comfy... More

We stayed on the Pura Vida yacht and it was even better than I expected. The king size bed was SO comfortable and you could walk around it! The shower was perfect. My husband is 6' and had no trouble at all - lots of room. We were told the robes were just added and we put them to good... More

Could it really be better than the pictures on the web? Wow, what a surprise to be escorted onto such a beautiful yacht and told it was ours for the week! Cal, our host and the owner, was most gracious and accommodating, showing us how everything worked and making local recommendations. We were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of roses... More

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...

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
