I typed in BERMUDA on airbnb.com and this is the page that came up when I hit the search button
I contacted the owner/host via the direct link on the website and heard back almost immediately. I told him about my job and how I was coming to Bermuda to do several pieces focusing on Solo Travel for Women. I wanted to present them with several options for lodging and this one seemed PERFECT! Never in my wildest dreams did I think you could Bed and Breakfast on a YACHT! And quite frankly, I have pretty WILD dreams! But seriously, come on people, sleeping on a yacht, at the Royal Naval Dockyard, in beautiful Bermuda. It just doesn't get better than that! Disney was so right. A dream IS a wish your heart makes. My sleeping head would have never thought of this one!
We kept in touch via email and worked out the details of my arrival. He was actually flying back to the island the day I arrived and his flight got delayed. No problem. I was online at Amici's Restaurant having a working lunch with wifi so he sent Bermuda Mike to meet me and get me all settled onboard. I was perfectly content to hang out all afternoon (if needed) in the wonderful company of this Italian Cafe. My waitress was named Halo for Petes Sake! What's not to love!
Since I have a hard time putting into words the description of this experience, its going to be best presented in a slideshow. Just hit play and watch the Magic unfold before your eyes:
The next time you are planning a trip, whether it's a short overnight stay somewhere close to home, or a week in a new destination, you should check airbnb.com FIRST. They are a secure site with reviews from former guests and a wonderful alternative to a standard Hotel. They have a variety of lodging options not found on other booking/lodging sites. I've seen Trains, Airstreams, and Tree Houses. Before this Bermuda trip, I'd never even heard of a Yacht Bed and Breakfast. After this experience, it's going to be the FIRST type of lodging I look for when staying near water. When you can combine 2 great things (bed AND boat), and pay no more than you would for a regular hotel room, I say
Why not #airBnB on a Yacht!
