We were voted BEST HOTEL ALTERNATIVE by Yankee Magazine in 2015!!

Experience Providence from the unique perspective of your own floating house that is equipped with full baseboard heat for cooler Sping and Fall months! Nestled in a protected marina in Providence Harbor, our houseboat is fully equipped with all the comforts and amenities of home! Our location is the most secure marina in Rhode Island. We are nestled inside of the Hurricane Barrier and are visible when driving along Interstate 195.

Located in a very secure and gated marina, our houseboat is just minutes away from downtown Providence’s most popular attractions: Waterfire, Brown University, Johnson & Wales, the East Side, The Providence Place Mall, and the Providence Convention Center. Our convenient location makes it easy for you reach points of interest along the waterfront on foot. Go ahead and rent or bring your car, this rental has a FREE parking space for it in an off-site lot!


We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer and a coffee maker (k-cups). This houseboat is fully air-conditioned and heated for your comfort in any season. All this for less than the price of the smallest rooms at any of the nearby downtown waterfront hotels!

There is a master stateroom with a full bed, two twin beds in a sleeping loft and a full-sized sofa bed for the living room. Additionally there is a full kitchen with a cooktop, microwave and full sized refrigerator. Off the kitchen is the bathroom, which is huge by boat standards. It has a full sized stand up shower, head and vanity/sink.

The boat is in a well protected part of the marina. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.

After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic views..

We offer different rates depending on the season and depending on the occasion. Our standard summer rates reflect an occupancy of 4 people maximum for overnight stays. For guests looking to have a larger gathering, we offer a 'Function' rate which reflects having a larger crowd aboard. Function rates apply to parties where there are more than 8 visitors at any one time. Due to the wear and tear on the boat and the increased water/electrical usage by having more people aboard, we also reflect that in the rate and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please review our rates to see what fits your budget.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our houseboat. Please call or email today to find out more about this unique and memorable rental!

This houseboat is located in downtown Providence. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops.

Overall a no frills, fun option in a great location. Yes, it's noisy on weekends, and yes, it's a boat, so expect it to be small and to smell like a boat. We had a great time!

Neil's place is a perfect spot to relax on the water for a short weekend away. My girlfriend and I enjoyed cooking meals together on the boat and taking advantage of the upper floor deck on the two cloudless nights we were there. Although a bit disorienting at first, the passing of larger ships in the marina gave a slight rocking to the boat that gave us weird sensations when standing, but perfect for lulling us to sleep after a long day out and about. I would definitely recommend Neil's houseboat for anyone looking for a unique getaway!

If you like boats and the water and want some place to stay other than a hotel, This is the place. It's also a few steps away from a famous restaurant Al Forno where the food and atmosphere are amazing. Also if you want nightlife later there are a couple of bars just before you enter the dock for the houseboat

We really enjoyed our time on Neil's houseboat. The bed was very comfortable and we found everything we needed. We preferred the bottled water we brought to the tap water. The address was South Water Street, but it seems that the street has been renamed Bridge Street. That confused our GPS. The entrance to the marina is just for pedestrians and is in the corner of the Whiskey Republic parking lot right next to the new Tel Aviv restaurant (as opposed to the old Tel Aviv across the street).

My name is Neil Malik and I am the owner of Sleep Aboard. I have 35 years of boating experience including short-handed crossings of the North and South Atlantic Oceans (USA-Europe-Brazil). After so much extensive travel, my goal is to provide a very unique, different experience for my guests that will pale any hotel experience. As an ex-COO of an Inc 500 company, I recognize the needs of my customers and try as hard as possible to accommodate each and every guest.
