Narnie O'Shea Weekend

3.4 on February 24, 2014

A good time on the yacht. Something new for us. Would probably do again sometime in the future.

Valentines Day

4.8 on February 23, 2014

Spent 5 nights including Valentines aboard the Pura Vida. Fun and adventurous experience. Bed was comfy. All the amenities were provided. Bathrooms/showers are what you should expect from a boat. Room service from the Blue Wave Bar & Grill to the boat was a bonus - beer,wine, and decent food at a discounted price. Challium was a polite and responsive host. Free Parking across the street was awesome. Free bicycle rental from the hotel. Loved it.

Fun fun fun!

Really enjoyed our stay on the Pura Vida. We enjoy the bed and breakfast concept and this was a really something different and a great way to spend an anniversary. We will be back!

Canucks in a Boat

3.6 on January 25, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the unique stay in the marina on Shelter Island. Chaluim welcomed us graciously and was very helpful and friendly. The Narnie O'Shea was clean and comfortable, even luxurious. The location was perfect, easy access to anywhere in San Diego, but peaceful and clean with many amenities right nearby.

Was an awesome anniversary weekend!!

We had stayed 2 nights on the Pura Vida over Veterans Day weekend! I have to say that we had a WONDERFUL TIME! The owners made it a very relaxing, and enjoyable stay for us!!! We wanted to say THANK YOU because it was a trip we will never forget. It's a beautiful boat...very roomy too!
