My wife and I stayed on Pura Vida for a couple of nights in early May. We initially expected a cramped boat with little room to relax, but what we got was a roomy 2-bedroom suite with plenty of room to move about and rest. And we certainly did a lot of resting while sitting on the deck looking out... More

We had a wonderful time. The yacht was perfect. Chaluim Muir was a great host. We had everything we needed on the boat. It was a relaxing weekend. It was great to be so secluded but yet so close that we were able to get room service from the Hotel. If you are looking for something private but yet full... More

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...
