This particular houseboat has all the linens, utensils, and electronics needed for a weekend get away or a great time for a group of friends. The best part is location which keeps you ten minutes to any area in Cincinnati or Kentucky, as well as an on-site bar and grill that is open all season during the summer and Thursday-Sunday's in the off season. ($10-$20 cab rides to any nightlife or ballpark in the area)

A 60 foot deck lines the top of the boat and gives its visitors a view for miles of the Ohio and surrounding areas. At nighttime a beautiful view of the city can be seen from top deck. The deck holds and double length table with multiple seats as well as beach lounging chairs for the sunbathers.

The boat has four bedrooms including a large king suite, queen private bedroom and two below deck bedrooms that are separated by privacy curtains.

There is additional sleeping area in the large living room with a double reclining couch and reclining chair that directly face the 60" flat screen tv. There are additional televisions in the king bedroom and queen bedroom.

The kitchen holds large beautiful granite countertops complete with microwave, blender, Keurig coffee maker and all the utensils and cookware needed to make a feast for you and your guests.

The boat and its surrounding harbor has many amenities like a swimming pool open at the marina during the summer season.
A fully loaded radio that plays music from the top deck to the bedrooms and bathrooms of the boat.
There is a large grill on the top deck for your free use.
The harbor includes additional shower and bathroom facilities if the two full bathrooms on the boat are not sufficient and the facilities can be accessed by code for safety and privacy.

Chris's houseboat was fantastic! Our stay was for one night, and the eight of us had plenty of space for socializing and for sleeping. Everything was clean, and we had all we needed for wifi, Netflix, and a bit of cooking. We were skeptical when we first arrived as the marina looked a bit run-down, but it was not an issue and the houseboat and communication with Chris exceeded expectation. As a host, Chris was very accommodating and helpful! The location is a short drive away from many restaurants and stores. We would absolutely return for another stay and would recommend this as an affordable, fun option to any party who is flexible and can drive. Perhaps ideal for shorter stays as there was not much available space in drawers for unpacking luggage, but this was not an issue for us. We had a phenomenal experience!

Houseboat as described. Plenty of space for family of 6 (even more). Positives include space, location, communication & responsiveness of owner. Negatives include overall cleanliness, toilet functionality, malfunctioning rear lock when sleeping at night & space for bags/luggage. Recommended.

This is a beautiful & unique rental property. I & my extended family (8 of us) spent the weekend before Christmas here for our family get together and it was a very comfortable fit for all of us. Cincinnati has lots of unique sights and this location put us within easy reach of all of them. The home is well furnished and made for a really fun time for all of us. We want to go back, for our Christmas event & also in the summer. Thank you, Chris!

Let me first start this out by saying my immediate family and I have been using Airbnb for over a year. My daughter is a traveling RN and my son lives half way across the country. Our family loves Airbnb. However, this experience at Chris' place did not meet our expectations given the cost. Let's start off with the good things. Chris was extremely nice and easy to communicate with. He was there when we arrived, greeted us, and gave us the tour. The houseboat was in a central location and easy to access via the interstate. There was an awesome trail/walking path that took you along the river that our family enjoyed; we had great walks and adventures in the surrounding towns and the fishing was non-stop fun. When first walking onto the houseboat, things seemed fairly clean. However, this was not the case. Chris does not advertise that his houseboat is his full time residence when he not renting the space out on Airbnb. The closets and drawers were jammed-packed with his personal belongings, leaving us with no place to unload our bags or store the items we brought with us. We had to fill the edges of the living room with our bags at night to be able to sleep in the beds. We stored bags on beds during the day. All our foodstuffs and living accessories we kept in totes on the back of the boat. Chris' personal food and leftovers were still in the fridge upon our arrival: the fridge was too packed with numerous condiments, old pizza cartons, beer, and rotting vegetables and had to be completely emptied and cleaned before we could put the contents of our coolers inside the fridge. We had to take each shelf and drawer out, soak it, wipe in down, and place it back into the fridge. Chris' personal hygiene products were present in both showers; the numerous bottles were used and left in an unorderly fashion. There were half-used bars of soap and other personal care products clustered in the bathroom that had to be cleared for our own personal belonging during the stay. There was no hair dryer as listed. He also fails to mention that out of the two bathrooms on the boat that only one toilet is functioning. We had a party of 10 on the boat which he was aware of. Pooping on the boat was not recommended in one bath and forbidden in the other via the host requests which were not advertised in his listing. In addition, the bathrooms had a FOUL order (like the waste tanks had not been emptied), dirty toilets, dirty sinks, and only a handful of towels. If we would have known to bring our own towels that would have been helpful. There is a bath house located by in the bar/restaurant area down the boardwalk where we showered and pottied. Only one of the showers in in the girl's room had decent water pressure and the...

We all enjoyed our stay at the boathouse! Chris was very easy to contact and communicate with. He was very accommodating, even with last minute requests. There were many restaurants/bars in the near by area and downtown Cincinnati is only a short away. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a fun weekend getaway.

We had a great time on the houseboat! Chris was friendly, informative and very welcoming. We arrived early so got to meet marina staff...all very nice...and explore a bit before settling in. Everything a person could want is right onsite and there are lots of restaurants nearby. The houseboat is huge, our bed was very comfortable, it was fun to watch activity on the river and provisions for movie/TV entertainment were exceptional. Would we stay here again? Certainly! Thank you so much, Chris!
