If you plan to visit Mersea Island let us welcome you to MoJo Houseboat Bed and Breakfast, where we offer not only cosy and comfortable accommodation but a real commitment to fulfilling the needs of our guests.
The Houseboat Suite
The private Guest Sitting Room is located on the lower deck and forms part of the Guest Suite of Rooms. There is a large 40 HD TV with Blu Ray DVD Surround Sound Cinema System plus Sky TV, Movies and Sky Sports. There are DVDs, board games and books for guest use during their stay. Tea and Coffee Making facilities are also in the guest sitting room.
The bedroom features a King Size bed with anti allergy continental quilt. Linen is luxurious 600 thread count Egyptian Cotton. The bed is located beneath the ceiling glass dome, ideal for star gazing at night. The fitted blind can be drawn across if you prefer the light to be excluded at night. The peaceful location and comfortable bed and linens should provide you with a restful and cozy sleep and set you up for the next day.
The en-suite shower room is both practical and luxurious with large walk in shower with drencher head providing that touch of luxury you might expect from a more exclusive hotel. There is plenty of hot water and we have brilliant water pressure, so a lovely shower experience awaits. We provide guests with Body Shop Shower Gel and Shampoo and there is a hand soap dispenser on the vanity unit. There are soft and fluffy towels to complete the expereimce. There is even a hair dryer in the bedroom cabinet.
On arrival at Mojo Houseboat guests may enjoy afternoon cream tea (home made scones, strawberry jam and cream plus tea) on the deck or in the upper sitting room, a time to relax and enjoy the views. Guests are welcome to use the upper sitting room on the top deck and the deck itself (weather permitting) during thier stay with us. The deck area has partial glass panelling which provides shelter for sitting out for much of the year. We have some comfy lounging chairs which can be pulled up to the table in order to enjoy your breakfast or cream tea on deck in the fine weather. You might just like to sit and take in the atmosphere or read a book. You can even sit and enjoy a glass of wine (small fridge in your sitting room if you wish to bring wine with you), or I am happy to make a pot of tea, just ask.
We like our guests to feel at home, so please ask if you have any special requirements and we will do our best to accommodate.
So whether you prefer to just chill out, wander the sands along the beach, hunting for shells or just watching the sea or head off for exciting excursions, our houseboat provides a perfect starting point and we'll be pleased to offer advice on how to make the most of your time staying with us.
The boat has full central heating, making it warm and cosy in the cooler weather. During the summer months, the boat is light and airy.

Location and area West Mersea is a village on the Island of Mersea, approximately 8 miles from Colchester in Essex. The Island is the most easterly inhabited island of the UK and is still a relatively undiscovered area in Essex. Home to a wide variety of migrating birds, it is also a great area for watersports of all kinds.
Located on the waterfront, Mojo is close to some great sea food restaurants including The Company Shed and West Mersea Oyster Bar, both have featured on the TV in the past. In addition there are a variety of other eating places in the close vicinity, we will be happy to provide more information on arrival.
Your hosts: John and Maureen will welcome you to their home with their large Golden Doodle, Jenksie. The Houseboat has been lovingly created on the basis of a Humber Keel Barge which had been a working barge plying it's trade up and down the Humber delivering animal feed and grain to various locations. The Houseboat arrived on Mersea in 2005 and was finally completed for living on board in 2010. Maureen and John will be happy to share their experience with any guests who are intersted in the process of making this boat into a home.
