22. The Lois Elaine

This particular accommodation is a very unique place to stay. It’s a boat that is actually sits on the water. If travelers get sea sick, it’s not the best idea to stay here as the boat does occasionally rock back and forth from the waves of the water. Although it’s a very soothing way to fall asleep if sea sickness isn’t an issue. It’s also a beautiful view to wake up to as the sun on the water is such a pretty sight. The host is very responsive when it comes to any issues that guests could have. There is not a whole lot of space on board since it is technically a boat, but the whole space is decorated very nicely. The boat is docked in Willoughby Bay, and there is a tasty seafood restaurant just a few steps away from the boat. The location is perfect for those that want to live on the water for a few days.
