Otros aspectos destacables
The houseboat has four levels and is not handicapped accessible.
Being that this residence is on water, all activities are expected to be ecologically safe. The toilets are pumped out once a week by the Marina. All other water (grey water) drains naturally into the Bay. Most of this area is a natural preserve and keeping our waters clean is a must.
I prefer adult guests but exceptions can be made for older children (over 8yrs.).
And no pets are allowed.
Fishing off the boat is encouraged, swimming is not.
