    Will return!

    This was our second stay in La Niña and Lord willing, not our last. Highly recommend! Sincerely, Jason

    5/5 Excellent

      Perfect Charleston weekend

      La Niña was awesome and Dara was very helpfull and accommodating. City Marina were the boat is moored is clean, safe and well lit at night. The bathrooms and showers were clean, and it was nice not being right in downtown. We got to know a few neighbors while we were there and everyone was friendly and helpful, you could really tell how much everyone we met took pride in being Charelstinians. We will definitely be staying here for our next trip back.

      • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

      This is very unique. Renting a yacht is much different than renting a hotel room. Dara our point of contact is outstanding. The location is very good and I would recommend experiencing this.

      Stayed 2 nights in Feb 2019

        Not just another hotel room

        Staying on La Nina was a unique way for us to spend the weekend in Charleston. It was very comfortable for our girls get away. We each had our own bedroom and the living room area gave us a place to sit and play cards without one of us having to sit on the bed. It was chilly to take advantage of outdoor seating in the mornings and evenings, but we did have happy hour overlooking the marina one night. Although we were not right in the historic district, we Ubered everywhere- and even had Uber deliver breakfast one morning and birthday cake one night. Getting to wherever we wanted to go was never a problem. The kitchen was well equipped- we just didn't want to cook. There were plenty of pillows, blankets, and towels. Keep in mind you are on a boat- not a cruise ship. The shower is actually the whole bathroom-you just close a curtain to protect the sink. The living/ kitchen area is small but comfortable. Keeping these expectations in mind- you will find that the marina is a nice home base and staying on a boat gives you a totally different sense of the community.

          The Best Way to Visit Charleston

          I really can't say enough positive things about how La Nina worked out for a get together of old college friends. The interior of the boat is incredibly designed. The common area proved spacious enough for four adults to sit and not feel the slightest bit crowded; windows all-around and incredible views of the water also helped. We took the boat out on the water with Capt Glenn which I would also recommend. Though we all were very familiar with Charleston, seeing landmarks from the water gave us a new perspective of the city. Capt Glenn is well versed in Charleston history and an all around great story-teller. Finally, Dara was incredibly responsive to our every request and went the extra distance to make sure we had an excellent stay on the boat. La Nina and the management team made an incredible trip to Charleston and so much better than staying in some hotel. Thanks so much, Dara!
