Shuswap- houseboats?

Heard about these houseboats on Shuswap. Anyone have experience with them? Only found one review online and it was a pretty scary one too (albeit with a different company than we are looking at).

We are looking to rent from admiral houseboats. Any info would be great.

Basically I don't want to end up on a dirty mouldy house boat for a week.

Waterways houseboats are probably the best..used em a couple years ago and they were great. I advise u to book em well in advance as the summer peak season books right up early. Especially canada day weekend!

We also used waterways, they are decent. If ur looking to party get pissed drunk, puke off the side of the boat, this place is perfect. If your looking for 4 star hotel type shit this is probably not

Wow, trying to remember which company's boats we were on when we went up there... what an adventure that was! I was roadie-ing for a band that was hired to play a party on one of the beaches at the far end of the lake, for Bust Loose! Vacations - imagine about four dozen house boat' worth of drunken college kids all partying it up on a beach in the middle of nowhere... a hot tub on pontoons... houseboat converted into a floating "corner store"... guys doing driving practice (the golf kind) off the roof of a houseboat out into the lake... and here's us, with the band's gear all crammed onto a houseboat and then setting them up to play on a barge...
