  • Amazing unique experience for a small family, my 9 year old son loved the loft with his own space to hang out. The boat is larger than expected but exactly as shown in the photos…

Let me tell you about Akwa Marina. Akwa has a large beach, pool, hot tub, volleyball court, bocce ball court, two outdoor fire pits, two outdoor pavilions and a restaurant right on sight. Akwa Marina Beach Bar restaurant is located right next to the pool, so you can sit back and let a waiter deliver you spectacular food and drinks. If you would rather dine in, enjoy them inside the bar while sitting at the “Annona bar”; a 28 foot wooden sailboat that was transformed into a bar.

What's in the area?

The house boat is a two minute, walk from downtown Weirs Boulevard & beach. The Weirs has a lot to offer, from arcades and food, to shopping and mini golf. The Weirs has fireworks every weekend in the summer. The Mount Washington Cruise line runs out of the port at the weirs & has fantastic "theme cruises". Gunstock Mountain is a 15 minute drive from door to door (Summer zip lines, monkey trunks and trail). Funspot, the largest arcade in the world, is a half mile away and is great place to take children (mini golf ice cream, monkey trunks etc.) My home is a 5 minute drive to downtown Meredith, a perfect location for a family gathering or an intimate date night with a lot of cozy restaurants. Meredith is also a great place to go for a walk or shopping.
