Fun little hideaway for the adventurous and low maintenance traveler. Enjoy the sea breezes, watching the sunrise, spotting dolphins, and even catching a fish right from the boat. Access to beautiful pool. Perfect jumping off point for a day of fishing or beaching! Location is great, less than 1 mile to the beach and 2 miles to downtown shopping, arts & dining district. Chartered sailing trips on the boat are available for an additonal charge.
Looking for a new experience and fun & memorable weekend?! Then this is the place for you... Please note that staying in the sailboat is very different from staying in a hotel and is much more similar to camping in a small RV. You get to enjoy the natural ambience of being on the water while still having access to the basic comforts. This space is suited to those who are agile enough to climb onto the boat and down into the cabin. Parking is right in front of the boat.

*****Please note this is a 25 foot sale boat, so it is a very small space. While there is AC and it even gets chilly inside at night, during summer it can get warm inside during the day depending on your preferences. In the hottest time of the year it is recommended to plan on being out of the boat during the hottest part of the day. This isn't a great place to stay if you want to hang out in the room during the day. Best suited for those who want to go enjoy the pool, the beach, moody gardens, schliterban, the strand, or the many other great attractions galveston has to offer during the day and chill out on the boat during the evening!:)
