Step out of the ordinary, and stay on our lovely sailboat in Stamford Harbor! Our 1966 Pearson is a charming old yacht, with a wood burning fireplace, heat and AC, and right next to two of Stamford's waterfront restaurants (The Crab Shell and Prime)! Only 1/2 mile from Metro North Train station, taxi accessible, and right across the water from Harbor Point, Stamford's newest hot spot! Tandem Kayak, hammock, grill. Be a "boat owner" for the weekend without all the hassle!

The place smelled like mildew and urine. We left for a couple hours to air the place out, but it didn’t help. It legitimately kept me awake the night. I packed up my children, and left as soon as the sun came up. It was awful. Additionally, the outside cushions weren’t typic…

This guest did not attempt to contact us once during their entire stay. If they had called us we would have 100% come right down to the boat to help them out. We had an issue with the holding tank being full (which the next guest brought to our attention, unlike this guest). Instead of simply calling us to let us know that there was a problem, this guest (who lives in CT about 45 minutes from the boat) decided to "wait a couple hours" to air the boat out (again, didn't call us or attempt to contact us in any way so that we could fix the problem). We only found out about this issue through another guest, and then now, through her review. Guests who do not bring problems to the attention of the host should not be allowed to leave bad reviews. If the guest had told us about the problem we would have done anything within our power to fix it. Instead, this guest "waited around for two hours", had a bad time, and then decided to leave us a nasty review. There's just no way to understand why this guest wouldn't contact either AirBNB, or us directly (she had my cellphone and my wife's cellphone) to let us know that she was unhappy. Really not much else we can say about that. We have a woman staying on the Extra Dry now, who is there through October, who is having a wonderful time. Our new boat, the Hidden Hand, is available to look at under our "other listings". We are very attentive, very fastidious hosts...but there is nothing we can do about a problem that the guest doesn't tell us about. The backed-up toilet on the boat has been fixed. This guest didn't think that she should call us to let us know that there was a problem. Thank you for your understanding, because this review is total BS.

Extremely dirty especially for such a small space, didn’t want touch anything with my bare hands, preferred to dry off with paper towels in public bathroom (which was the nicest part of the stay.)

Here we go again. We take bad reviews very seriously, but this one has a "story" behind it. When Christina and I arrived at the boat to clean for our next guests (who were arriving in just a couple of hours) we found the boat to be in total disarray. The salon table was broken, the cushions in the main cabin were spread out all over the floor, the "front door" (the companionway boards) was "wide open", pillows were left on deck, and wooden trim was ripped from the walls of the boat. In short...we were shocked at the state of the boat. Have never seen it be left in such a condition. Christina and I were able to clean everything, temporarily fix the table, and get it ready for our next guests...but we immediately called AirBNB. I did not want to "open a case", but I have been in this situation before and I know that as soon as you bring up "damage" with a guest...things start to go crazy. So I called AirBNB, explained exactly what we found when we arrived on the boat (with my wife as a witness! On my birthday, no less!) and said that I wanted to lodge a complaint as a precaution, while I contacted the guest to give her 24 hours to explain the damage and the fact that she left the boat completely trashed. As expected, the guest (who up until this point had not complained about anything at all...actually sent a message at 8 a.m. saying that they were leaving, and thank you!) immediately tried to "turn the tables (funny, after breaking our table)" and started listing things that were wrong with the boat. Mind you, there were ZERO complaints during her stay. This is exactly why when I find damage on the boat I give AirBNB notice, and then I give my guests the opportunity to work with me to solve it amicably. 99% of the time we have no problems, but here you have the classic example of someone who had no complaints during their stay, broke things and left the boat a disaster, and then when confronted with the damage (and complete lack of respect for the fact that you are staying in someone's "home", their private property...not a hotel) retaliated by leaving this review. We have over 200 positive reviews, so I don't sweat this one. If you as a guest have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us and we are always here to help.

Booked a last minute night on the boat in Stamford and had the most wonderful time. The boat and location are wonderful. Drew is very attentive and went out of his way to help make our weekend special. Thank you!

If your looking for a unique place to stay in Stamford then this is it! Check-in instructions were very detailed and instructions about the boat were very easy to understand. The first night was very stormy and I enjoyed a nice night in watching Netflix. The boat was cozy and per…

Hi Em! Glad you enjoyed your stay! Everything you said is accurate, except that there are plenty of plates, cups and utensils in the cabinets and drawers onboad. Your comment has prompted me to label all of the cabinets and drawers so that everyone can find everything they need. Thanks, and come back again anytime!

We really enjoyed the stay after our long day. It was really nice to wake up on a boat. Touches like the seltzerwater was very nice to refresh ourselves Looking forward to stay again if need to go back to CT. Thank you!

Staying on the boat is a fun and affordable concept. The head on the boat may not be available and the marina bathroom is a bit of a distance. The harbour area is scenic, quiet at night. While the Crab restaurant nearby is mediocre, there is a very nice cafe downtown, Lorca.

Hello Doug, we sincerely apologize for the mixup with your stay. At the time we had a long-term tenant who came for three months, and you were the only existing reservation during that time, so the tenant had agreed to clean the boat and leave it "ship-shape" for your stay as part of their lease agreement. Obviously that did not happen, and since we were traveling out of the country there was nothing we could do to rectify the situation. This was a one-time mixup and again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

We are a married couple from CT. I am in finance, and Christina is an engineer/lawyer. We love to sail, hike, cook, travel, and explore new places! We are longtime AirBNB hosts, and now have two sailboats in Stamford, CT listed here.
