7 days of bliss! My boyfriend booked the "Slipaway" as a surprise getaway for us for my birthday. His original booking was for 4 nights only, since he wanted to confirm I like it. As soon as I stepped inside the boat, I liked it so much, we extended our stay to a full week. There are other boats that are rented out as B&Bs by the same company but this one suited our style most. From an aesthetic viewpoint, it is a classic style boat with a pirate-ship like stern, with large windows at the stern for the main berth. It has two main masts, 46 feet length, a teakwood hull fully encapsulated in fiberglass, all cabinetry, wood-work & flooring were teak. This makes the boat heavy leading to a smooth sail, as we experienced on the day we took it out for a sail around San Diego harbor. We were provided with supplies for breakfast in the galley & we did some of our own shopping in the market. We also used the barbecue provided on the boat. There are ample restaurants around but we were so addicted with life on the boat, with its gently rhythm, that we resisted going out as much as possible. It was hard to get out of bed in the morning with the boat trying its best to lull us into sleep with its gentle rocking. In the afternoon, we laid out on the deck, reading & relaxing. Even though the evenings were somewhat chilly, we couldn't resist being out on the deck to gaze at the stars. Gorgeous sunrise & sunsets came free with the stay!
We only wish that there was a shower on-board the boat, instead of having to use the one at the club-house (only a few steps away for sure, but not the same as having a shower in the B&B).
