Great location, and a lot of fun staying on a boat. Comfortable space in a really nice marina with great facilities. Very convenient for Falmouth centre.

What it says on the tin. A different experience! We had fun but would probably only stay one night as we are taller than average people. Location is very good.

What can I say....This boat is incredible, if you enjoy cosy nights looking at the stars, sitting on the water and watching the ripples in the moonlight then this is the ultimate stay for you. We walked our dog for his evening stroll to the local chinese which has beautiful views of the lit harbour where the blue and orange lights of the harbour and ships dance constantly creating a very romantic atmosphere. Falmouth is a beautiful town and has everything to offer. Pete, the owner of Kittwake is a great guy and has all the knowledge of the mariner. The toilets and showers are superb, and are accessed by 'swipe in' technology giving only the people that 'care' the access to do their business. I'd personally prefer to take a stroll to the toilets than use the onboard W.C, as this certainly was a task in itself to understand the flush system. The bed was very comfortable, great to watch the stars pass, and hear the 'ting' of other yachts masts. The atmosphere was gorgeous, however space was limited in the bedroom. All in all, you have to experience this boat just as an adventure. Dogs welcome too, our buddy loved every minute, apart from getting on and off. Thanks again.

Such a novel way to have a break. The boat was cosy. We ate in the restaurant at Marina, great food and service! The shower and toilet facilities were new and outstanding. We could make tea on the boat, but I wouldn't want to try much more. Pete our host showed us the ropes and was very helpful. The guy in the marina office was rather rude, but that was nothing to do with airbnb.

Hi Pete, We had a great one night stay on the Kittiwake, I had booked this for my boyfriend birthday as a surprise, and he was over the moon on this unique experience. We both loved the boat, and were able to watch the stars from the hatch in the bedroom. Which was great, even with passing showers :) Will recommend to friends and hopefully sometime in the future we may see you on the water. Thanks again! Becky and Rowan
