Location:

The Pilot House Marina is a first-class, 5-Star marina. Its Pilot House Restaurant is a local favorite and its Glass Bottom Bar is a Key Largo landmark. This hotspot features glass floor panels and fish feeding tubes where you can enjoy the underwater sea life while dining!

On select nights local musicians perform your favorite music on stage, but the music ends by 10 PM so you can sleep well in your nearby houseboat. Checkout the PH Marina website for live web cams' of the action (you can see the houseboat!) including the stage, to see who is playing. Daily happy hour specials in the bar.

Located on Lake Largo in the heart of downtown Key Largo, we are just minutes from the best diving and fishing waters in the world. Additionally, there is plenty to see and do all within walking distance from the marina as well. Dolphins Plus, where you can actually swim with the dolphins, is a major attraction just down the street!

Want to bring your own boat along for day trips? No problem! We'll put you in contact with the the Dock Master and he'll help set you up with a spot in one of their racks or in a slip near the houseboat. He can store your trailer, too.

The Experience:

Renting a houseboat in Key Largo is something you'll never forget!

The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.

SleepAfloat is a professional marketing and management company specializing in unique watercrafts as vacation rentals. We represent the very best in on water vacations. With locations in Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Key West, and Cape Cod, you may never book another hotel room again!

*Please note this houseboat is rented for accommodation purposes only and never leaves the docks. Contact us for more details. We'd love to hear from you!

A Really Unique Rental
Guest: James
Date of Stay: May 28, 2014

My daughter, husband and I rented Calypso for a week. It was a truly great relaxing experience. Spent hours reading and playing games on the upper deck. Commuted 1 minute down the dock to a dive boat where we spent the rest of our time on or under the water. Don't miss the coral restoration project exhibit on the dock. There was music from the Pilot House every evening, nearly always a local artist, very nice and ended early so as to not disturb us. Wonderful, friendly, peaceful neighbors The kitchen was adequate stocked, the sleeping space very comfortable and the baths rather large considering the fact that we were on a boat. Would love to stay here again. Highly recommend.

The Best!

Our Calypso vacation in Key Largo was the best! the boat was immaculately well-cared for, comfortable and very close to everything that's fun in Key Largo...not to mention the Pilot House bar where we saw a manatee under the glass-bottom floor! We will be back!



A Terrific Vacation!
Guest: Roy
Date of Stay: May 20, 2014

This boat is a perfect get away. We went with our two kids (18 and 20) and it is rare that we can all enjoy a place equally. We were met with Howie who had everything ready to go and gave us a nice overview of the while area. First off: The place is brand new, immaculate and very well equipped. We were all surprised how nice it was. There are three bedrooms that offer lots of privacy and the two bathrooms were a big plus. There is also a nice kitchen and plenty of room to stretch out. However, the highlight is the enormous roof top are, both covered and uncovered. We spent 90% of our time up there and enjoyed people watching as the boats passed by. The location, at the end of the marina was very nice as we saw or heard very few people at the far end of the marina. We had several meals at the restaurant at the Pilot marina and it was excellent - with plenty of options and lots of fresh fish to choose from. Great music as well. We had all of our breakfasts sitting on the roof top of the boat and couldn't ask for a better spot. There is also a ton of things to do in the area. We went on the glass bottom boat ride which was left just a few yards from the house boat. It's a great trip and we saw lots of fish. The boat is a high speed boat and we were at the reef in just minutes. The boat is beautiful and the husband and wife owners were great and pointed out each and its name. We also spent a day at PennyKamp Park. It's 5 miles away and was excellent. We rented paddle boards and kayaks and spent the day on the water. I highly recommend the park, we left a map of the park that shows all of the water trails you can spend the day on. We also went snorkeling and were amazed at the coral reefs and the thousands of fish. It is really an amazing experience. My wife spent our evenings drinking mojitos on the roof thinking of when we could get back here! It really is a great place and a welcome change from the usual hotel/ condo scene. Thanks fro renting! We will be back.

The Pilot House (PH) Marina the number #1 rated marina in the Keys. The Pilot House Restaurant and Glass Bottom Bar is a locals' favorite with in/outdoor dining, and tiki bar right in the marina and on the water. With over 30 reinforced glass floor panels there’s room for everyone to view the fish and underwater sea life that thrives in our Caribbean waters. The floor has fish feeding tubes and underwater lighting to entertain everyone as schools of fish dart back and forth.

The dock from the boat leads to the Boardwalk from which you can sign up for scuba and snorkling dive tours from two companies, an underwater tour of a Coral Restoration facility, charter a fishing boat, or walk down the road to swim with the dolphins. The kids can bike to the local town water park, or you can spend the day at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and much more!
