About this listing

Perfectly appointed 3 cabin live-on-board all with en suites in this idyllic palm fronted marina ½ mile from Hampton Court Palace, excellent restaurants/pubs, direct train link to London Waterloo + 6 miles to Heathrow. Large in & outdoor living space, full kitchen, sun terraces, heating, Smart TVs, WiFi, HiFi, Netflix, PS3, games & books. Included: stunning gardens, BBQ, kayaks, pedalos & an electric boat! Our 7-seat motor boat can be hired for £50/day & charters/cruises can also be arranged.

The space

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.

Guest access

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

ID
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.

PARKING
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!

UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
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!

Klaus and Natasha were good at communicating and arranged Christina to meet us on the boat and show us the 'ropes' when we arrived. The small Marina is very picturesque and on a pretty spot on the river. Sadly it rained all day on the day we were keen to take out the motor boat, so we didn't get to take full advantage of the river options.

This place was absolutly fantastic to stay in. It felt authentic, well maintained and provided a unique sense of relaxation. This was a birthday surprise from my partner and the hosts added a lovely touch of birthday banners and confetti. You are given a electric boat to have a cruise of the river .The lovely guestbook and brilliant amount of local information such as instructions, restaurants and events was much appreciated. Will definitely book again

Wonderful little oasis of calm in a very central location. 10mins walk to Hampton Court Palace, the train station and local restaurants & cafes. Klaus & Natasha our hosts could not have provided a more comprehensive check in and 'Help' pack for our arrival. Being able to use the little electric boat was a real highlight. Surprisingly comfortable and very quiet nights sleep, with plenty of hot water for showers etc. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend to others looking for an alternative and much more relaxing overnight stay.

This is a lovely spot and an immaculate boat. Almost reluctant to recommend as it is so good. Easy to reach a host of nearby places either on foot on via the water and a choice of complementary small water craft.

Did a week on Eucala with a colleague. There really is no other way to go than a boat from now on. So much so we've already booked our next week on Bluebird! The whole experience was amazing. Contact between Klaus and Natasha was brilliant from start to finish and the yacht, its surroundings and things to do, WOW! The yacht is huge! Plenty of space and everything you need on board. Even led disco lights (we only discovered on last night) If you want something totally different to the usual generic boring hotels then this is exactly what you need. Beds are super comfortable to, as was the saloon and there's a smart tv in every room. We've had such a brilliant time I really can't get over it. Thank you so much for having us on board your place. Can't wait for next week

Can't recommend this place enough. We just had a night's stay but wish we could've stayed longer. 10/10 from us! Many thanks :)
