Guestbook comments from the owner:
First off just let me say that this place well exceeds your expectations. The Floating Chapel is exactly as it is pictured. The owners have done everything perfectly. The finishes are all high end and have been hand picked with your comfort and pleasure in mind. My family and I stayed a full week and did not find one item that we lacked or needed. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bed linens were so nice that I came home and ordered a set for myself. We loved going to the local seafood market and grilling on the front deck. The location of the yacht on the marina was great and was only steps away from the laundry room, fitness room, ship store, fine restaurant and snook bar. We also enjoyed waking up each morning to a gorgeous sunrise and walking down the main pier to The Riverside Grill for the perfect morning Bloody Mary while waiting on our breakfast to go. The deck of the house boat is just too beautiful to pass up eating your breakfast on so just take it back with you and enjoy the view. The pancakes are amazing! The location of Regatta Pointe Marina was also very convenient. Beautiful white sand beaches are just a short drive away and we especially loved going to Anna Maria Island. I will suggest that if you do drive to the beach that you plan those days more on the week days since public beach access parking is much harder to find on the weekends. There is just so much to do in this area that I am sure that I could have stayed a month and not done it all. You will love everything about this trip but mostly the house boat itself. The gentle rocking of the boat and sounds of water surrounding you will just put your mind at ease and float all of your worries and cares away. This one will go down in the books as one of my favorite trips! It was so out of the box of our normal condo on the beach vacations that seem to have all of our vacation memories run into one. I will always remember this trip!
It was absolutely perfect time spent with my family! Book this house boat now because Donna from WV to you to!!!
Just returned home from 3 nights with girlfriends and we had a fantastic time on the chapel!! The owners, Sam and Linda, were a pleasure to work with and take great care in their houseboat. It feels more like an upscale apartment with high ceilings and updated finishes. We would love to return for another stay!
This has been the most memorable family vacation. The uniqueness of the Chapel, and yet all the necessities and comfort of your own home. Loved the fact that we were minutes away from Anna Maria Island - our playground of beaches.
We never expected to see dolphins in the marina. Definitely a high-light of ours!
The owners go above and beyond to ensure nothing is missed. Absolutely stunning.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this iniquely beautiful floating home. The owners and staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. The furnishings were comfortable and the gentle movements of The Chapel were relaxing; all adding up to a great vacation! Thank you Linda & Sam!
This is such a beautiful little gem of a place. A perfect location to get away from things for a bit and simply relax on the water. We were greeted with a thoughtful note and gift basket of wine and snacks from the owners upon our arrival. Sam and Linda were so helpful in easing our transition. Everything you could possibly need is provided.
Definitely a WOW factor! Loved every minute! I would definitely go back in a heartbeat. First, the chapel was immaculate. Everything we needed was there. Communication with the owner was great. There isn’t a lot of movement between the yacht and the river. In fact we would forget we were on the water. Of coarse, at times we felt some movement, but this was rare. Last night we had a storm and the movement was the same.
Everything looked brand new and is well taken care of. We appreciated having dish soap, body wash, welcome basket , paper towels , plenty of bath towels etc. location is great and there is plenty to do in the area.
Thanks to the owners for taking pride in your work. We appreciated every last detail.
Blessings to you.
