When you think about a vacation with your best girlfriends, renting a houseboat may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but maybe it should. Houseboat trips aren’t just for the guys! The whole point of a girls’ getaway is to get away – from work, from household responsibilities, from everything! On a houseboat vacation, you can leave the stresses of daily life on the shore. Here are a few tips to make your houseboat girls’ getaway extraordinary.
Plan a Spa Day on the Houseboat
Just because you’re on a boat doesn’t mean you can’t have a spa day. Pamper yourselves with an easy to pack, travel face mask. You can also find many foot scrubs and lotions in single use packets that are portable and simple to use. Ask everyone to bring their current favorite nail polish and you’ll have a variety of great colors to choose from for a personal pedicure. There’s no better way to let your nail polish dry than while lounging on the top deck of your private houseboat rental.
Rent a Houseboat with a Hot Tub
At Forever Houseboats, all of our luxury houseboats include fully equipped kitchens, private bedrooms, and ample room to relax. But if you really want to take your girls’ getaway to the next level, we recommend renting one of our houseboat models with a hot tub. All of our 70- and 75-foot houseboats include a hot tub on the top deck. It’s the perfect place to hang out at the end of the day, chat about plans for the next morning, and look up at the night sky.
Practical Packing – Toiletries Tip
First-time houseboaters tend to overpack, especially when it comes to toiletries. One of the easiest ways to maximize storage is by sharing toiletries such as toothpaste, shampoo, and conditioner. Shampoo and conditioner bars, from companies like LUSH and Obia Naturals, are great for travel because they are compact and there’s no risk of leaking.
So, Ladies: Don’t let the guys have all the fun! This summer, take your girls’ getaway offshore with a houseboat rental from Forever Houseboats. We have marinas on some of the best houseboating lakes in the country with a range of houseboats to fit every group size and budget.
