If this is "Normal" Service...
If this is normal service then clearly the word "exceptional" does not exist in the dictionary.
Remember you are on a small yacht, but imagine having all the services of a functional hotel room, including room service (hosts with the most), wifi, fully adjustable heating and a mini canteen, well, what I mean there is a well stocked tea, coffee and essential supplies base.
I stayed on Maya in January with 10cm of snow on the ground, boat and pontoon and temperatures below freezing, with a snowstorm blowing through. We survived comfortably and woke refreshed and ready for a great breakfast followed by a great day on the slopes riding all the fresh powder.
I can imagine Maya comes into her own during the hot summer weather, especially the evenings when you could sit on the open deck and watch the sun set over the end of the lake.
there is a high likelyhood I will return in the future for more of this chillaxing, in a very very therapeutic environment.
Thanks again to M & G, the hosts with the most.
A unique and wonderful Swiss experience
My wife, ten-year old daughter, and I spent a night on Maya - and loved it. The beautiful lake views, sense of peacefulness, and the uniqueness of our stay had us smiling from start to finish.
Our hosts provided a top-notch experience. They met us when we arrived, showed us the ropes (so to speak), and provided us with a lovely breakfast in the morning. It was very obvious that they are passionate both about Maya, and their roles as hosts.
As wonderful as our stay aboard Maya was (and I can't emphasize enough how lovely an experience it was), there are a few things to be aware of: Maya is a lovely sailboat, but she is a boat. There was plenty of room for the three of us, but don't expect a hotel suite. Climbing aboard, and "stepping off" Maya requires a bit of physicality. We had no problems, but those with limited mobility may have a difficult time. Also, the bathroom is not on board. As guests, we had access to the marina bathroom, which was a short walk down the dock.
On the recommendation of our hosts, we dined at a nearby restaurant (Sagibeiz) which was delicious.
I highly recommend a stay on Maya. It is a one-of-a-kind experience.
The sites of Walensee are simply breathtaking, from waterfalls to beaches, the lake will make your stay one not easily forgotten.
Should your stay be longer than just one night, try your hand at windsurfing, or fishing, or rent our smaller boat and speed off for lake walensee discovery.
Many activities are readily available, please ask for prices.

There are a number of little places around the lake, and they all have their special features, such as Quinten: this car-free little town is particularly popular with tourists because of its almost Mediterranean climate. Well protected from the cold north winds, certain types of grape, kiwi, figs and other southern fruits flourish here. The town can only be reached by boat or on foot.
To the west of Quinten is the little village of Betlis. When the snow is melting, or after a heavy downpour, the mighty Seerenbach Waterfall, nearly 720 metres high, is really impressive, or the Rinquelle gushing out of the rocks, one of Europe’s largest limestone springs. The historic little town of Weesen at the western end of the lake is the starting point for the popular Walensee Walk along the wild, northern bank of the lake to Walenstadt.
On a sunny plateau high above the northern shore of the lake is the spa town of Amden. A massive hiking area in summer, in winter this alpine village above the mists turns into a friendly family skiing area. On the southern side of the lake, we should mention not only the lakeside villages of Mühlehorn,..(Mühlehorn Yacht Marina, your B&B rental).. Murig, Unterterzen and Mols, but also the well-known winter sports and walking area of the Flumserberg and the adventure Eldorado of Filzbach/Kerenzerberg.oo
