EXCLUSIVE USE - and a unique self-catering experience on water with all the creature comforts of a home. “Eucala” is a very beautiful and cleverly laid out classic French motor yacht with a really rich heritage. We have recently renovated her trying to remain sympathetic to her former style and glory and is fully heated. She has 3 cabins, all with Smart TV's and en suites/wash rooms with ample hot water and linen/towels are provided. all with en suite toilets/shower rooms with ample hot water and linen/towels are provided. The galley/kitchen is fully fitted and equipped including an induction hob, combination microwave/oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, toaster and tea/coffee making facilities. There are 2 separate living areas (saloon/lounge and dining) and 3 different outside seating/sunbathing areas (including a BBQ and seating area on the rear deck) all of which provide comfortable and ample in and outdoor space for up to 6 guests with stunning river views.
If the weather permits..... there are magnificent gardens to relax in; a floating boat-shaped island with a tranquil river view and comprehensive BBQ (BBQ only available approx. April to October although "Eucala" does have her own BBQ on the rear deck) and outside dining areas perfect for al fresco dining; canoes/kayaks, pedalos and an electric boat are also included. PLEASE NOTE: the use of all these facilities are free at our guests' own risk. A 7-seat petrol dory/motor boat is also available at a cost of £50/day (includes the first tank of fuel) which is a fun and easy way to explore the river unskippered. Charters/cruises can be arranged upon request.
Interaction with guests
As and when required - we really have tried our best to make this a fun/exciting but comfortable/relaxing experience - without it being intrusive!
Other things to note
Guests are required to provide a scan or photo of their government issued photographic ID (passport or driver's license) to our private e-mail address prior to their arrival, which will be provided once a booking has been confirmed.
On-road parking is normally free at weekends and restrictions usually apply during weekdays, ie. 8:00am to 9:30am AND 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Alternatively, there is a parking facility approx. 200 meters away which is £1.50 per hour between 8:00am to 8:00pm but locked between 11pm to 6am. Having said this however, due to functions at Hampton Court Palace, the parking situation is always subject to change. We have also organised with a local Restaurant/Hotel approx. 350 meters away for our guests to be able to park there for £5 a day, organised directly with them.
CHECK-INS / MEET AND GREET
As we both work, have children and don't live at the marina, we can't always be on hand to meet and greet our guests. Having said this, we have an outside key safe so our guests can let themselves in and also have a comprehensive alphabetical HELP guide on board to cover just about every and any eventuality we can think of - but are always at the end of the phone/e-mail should our guests get stuck, need to be ‘shown the ropes’ and/or wish to give us additional feedback!
Please be forewarned, being on a boat is a very unique experience and many things are different to being a landlubber and staying in standard accommodation or a hotel for that matter, in terms of staffing, water supply, pumping out after showers, toilet flush systems, etc. Upon booking, we will send details of the things that are not strikingly obvious so our guests are forearmed. We really have tried our best to make this a fun/exciting but comfortable/relaxing experience - without it being intrusive - and very much hope you enjoy your stay!
No smoking on the yacht or anywhere within the marina. No shoes inside the yacht. The number of guests who are booked to stay may access the property only - please don't invite extra people. This is not a party venue. Respect our neighbours. Please wash dishes and BBQ grill before departure. Thanks
