Check out our 5 other boats available for rent as well! Pirates Life was featured on Tiny House Hunters, but far from tiny! Stays toasty warm in winter months and refreshingly cool in the summer. This floating abode was gutted & completely rebuilt using reclaimed materials, sweat, & love. You'll find her spacious, comfortable, & peaceful. The location of this boat is for people looking for tranquil, private, and quiet getaway. Enjoy coffee & cocktails on the large deck overlooking the harbor.

This is a fantastic location. Our first time doing the Air BnB TGIF, but it definitely will not be our last! It was the perfect setting for our 1 year anniversary. We literally couldn’t have asked for a better location/venue. Justin and his team are great and we look forward to …

We always ask that people staying on our vessels report issues so we can address them otherwise we are unaware there’s an issue. The smell this guest experienced was from a dead animal that got trapped under the dock by the vessel. We found it & removed it from the dock and apologize this inconvenienced Elizabeth’s stay. If it would have been brought to our attention we could have immediately rectified the situation & we would have most likely partially refunded Elizabeth for the inconvenience. The 140+ other reviews averaging 4.8 stars over the course of 3 years clearly show this is an isolated incident.

We did not find the houseboat to live up to our expeditions based on the pictures and description. We are boaters so we are used to boat smells but it was definitely more unpleasant and pervasive than we'd hoped it would be. Our 10 year old son was with us and the day bed was n…

Quite a unique place to stay! Fantastic view, easily accessed, and quite secure. We enjoyed chatting with guests on neighboring boats, and always good to spend time in Charleston!

Interesting choice that a friend and I made. You must have a sense of humor and a lot of patience. We wanted an adventure and this house boat provided one, but was disappointing for us. All facilities onboard were not "ready for guests", light bulbs out, shower stall poolin…
