Stay on a boat in London, United Kingdom

Welcome to Mili, a widebeam canal boat moored on a beautiful private pontoon. Mili is 60ft by 13ft, spacious with high ceilings. The private outdoor deck is shared with a neighbouring boat but you’re free to use the full space, have a bbq, feed the swans or just chill out and enjoy the riverside life :)

The boat is perfect for a couple short holiday, you can enjoy a quiet and secluded space surrounded by water and wildlife...or you can go out and explore Hackney Wick creative neighbourhood!

Layout

We have been living on Mili for two years and before that we lived on a cruising narrowboat called Hopkins. We’ve been slowly doing the boat up, painting and decorating and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

There’s a fully equipped kitchen, a living area with a wood burning stove, a bathroom with a walking shower and a master bedroom with a double bed.

Outside the boat we have a large floating wooden deck, a veg garden, outdoor tables and chairs and a bbq. There are no handrails so please be careful when close to the edge.

Onboard

Access to the boat - you will have one set of keys, boat must be locked every time you’re not in.
