Top guest reviewsMarina bathrooms and showers were a close walk and well maintained.If you don’t think you will like not having a bathroom right there at your sleeping quarters, then this may not be for you.There were even some extra amenities we didn't expect (indoor and outdoor space, fridge, microwave).The dock and parking were very secure and the bathrooms and showers were clean and easily accessible.Very accurate description, the boat was cleaner than some apartments I've rented.No running water on the boat.
