Our unique floating apartment allows guests of all levels of boating experience to enjoy entertaining as the Belafonte remains on the mooring. Shuttle in and out of downtown Newport with complimentary launch service (water taxi) provided by Old Port Marine.

• sleeps 2-4
• fully stocked with towels, linens, glasses and dishes 
• all natural toiletries. 
• galley includes an ice chest for refrigeration  

In an effort to be more conscious of island living and our impact on the environment, the Belafonte is primarily powered by solar panels and batteries thus removing home luxuries such as hot water, refrigeration and 9 volt outlets.

Local Transportation: From NYC: Amtrak to Kingston, RI. We will send an inclusive list of instructions along with places to park overnight.

We host sunset cocktail parties, spa days, traditional bed and breakfast for overnight stays or just rent it for a day on the water!  

Rates vary $500-$700 per night.  There is a cleaning fee of $50 per stay.  If you would like additional housekeeping during your stay, please let us know.  Belafonte sleeps 4 comfortably. There is a $50 charger per person per night for additional guests over 4.  Our cancellation policy allows for a refund of 50% of the reservation with 7 days cancellation.  Please note that our rates and cancellation policy have changed since Summer 2014 as our maintenance fees have increased and our season is too short to allow for last minute cancellations.  We want to keep Belafonte available for serious travelers so we can focus more on making your stay more enjoyable!  Belafonte is a 21+ establishment.  Please summer responsibly!
