House Boat on Hudson next to the Statue of Liberty Torch / 10 minute ferry from NYC. NEW SPACE just renovated. Full Mattress, a sitting area, and operate like a small studio. There are showers and laundry facilities at the marina. Remember- it's a boat though but I do have perfect reviews for all my other properties That said, boats bathrooms are a little limited and best used for convenience in parallel to the marina facilities.

* Late Nov- March- boat water may be off -must use Marina

The space

The entire house boat is yours as are all Marina services including shower and bathrooms if preferred over on board facilities.

Guest access

The Whole Boat!

Interaction with guests

Text or cell or in person if needed

Other things to note

It's a boat.

Toilet works well but no paper. The storage tank will have room but running the water will fill it. In general, it's pretty easy to use.

Had a great stay at Chris' boat house! It is completely renovated and a very confortable stay for 2 people. Chris was a lovely host! He was fast to reply when I sent him messages. He also gave us free tickets to a Yankees game because he could not go, which was a great experience. Would definitely recommend his boat or any other of his airbnb properties to anyone looking for a great stay in New York!

It was a wonderful stay at Chris's. A unique experience living in a boathouse. The location are perfect. New York City is just a mile away. We could easily get Uber or using their subway call PATH which connect our stay to NYC within 20min. This experiences is worth for those who are travelling to NYC. Chris boathouse is a must try!

Everything was as advertised host was very good to communicate with and the checkin was very easy. The marina was very quiet and we had a good time in the marina. We would come back any time again.

Great way to see the city from another perspective! Chris is a very responsive host, I'd recommend staying with him. The household guidelines are helpful. Be prepared to stay a smaller space, it's a boat - and it's a boat, so very fun!

For our trip to New York, we stayed on Chris little boat. We found all the comfort that we need and even meet a friend of Chris: a duck near the boat!!! And when he saw us, he came really near. We gave him a piece of bread and he become very familiar. This duck probably have many friends in the marina!!! The location of Chris boat is perfect! It is near the Path subway so it is very easy to reach the big apple in short time. Jersey City is very nice and they are many restaurants nearby. Chris is very easy to reach and provide good tips during all our stay. We love our trip to New York and if we have the chance to go back, we will not hesitate to stay in Chris boat again!!!

I highly recommend a stay on Chris's boat at Liberty Marina. The early mornings with coffee and late evenings with a glass of wine never tasted better. I was working in NYC and the commute was easy to and from Liberty Marina. As a travel writer I have stayed in all forms of lodging around the world, staying on Chris's boat while working in NYC made the experience a pleasure!

My place in NYC is a shared apartment with my roommate and rent my room and our 3rd bedroom. I have a house which is in Princeton,NJ area which I own and just ask that you be respectful of the physchologists who rent down stairs. Additionally, I just added a HOUSE BOAT that is a very easy 15 min commute to Downtown Manhattan which I am also renting.
