Stock Island house boat description

The Red Grouper is a one bedroom, one full bath floating house located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect way to experience Key West by water. Bring your boat and tie up to the Red Grouper, or just enjoy the ocean breeze from the deck or roof-top viewing area. The interior has been recently remodeled with new furnishings and artwork, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with luxury towels and linens. We also have coin operated laundry machines for your convenience. Stock Island Marina Village features free Wi-fi, a downtown shuttle service, an on-site restaurant, a ship store, and dog parks that are also available for your use. Enjoy all the comforts of home with the atmosphere of maritime living!

Stock Island is located just over the bridge from Key West, about a 15 minute ride to Duval Street. It's close enough to enjoy all the action of downtown but kick back in a more laid back atmosphere. Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboards and seasonal visitors, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel. And we're pet friendly!


Stock Island Marina Village: Stock Island Marina Village is a multi-use Marine Community located in historic Safe Harbor and serving live-aboard, recreational, and commercial vessels. Our office is open 7 days a week, and we have security on site after office hours so you can feel safe during your stay. Our residents are very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of Key West life.

Stock Island: In 2007, the New York Times said, “The real Key West? It’s not even located on Key West proper anymore, but just over the Cow Key Channel Bridge, on the even tinier Stock Island.” Home to a diverse group of residents and business (and boats), Stock Island is a little quieter than its neighbor Key West, but still close enough to experience all Key West has to offer. Named after the livestock that used to call it home, Stock Island has a unique commercial history. The docks that currently house the Red Grouper were once lined with hundreds of fishing and shrimping vessels. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, proximity to Key West, and old island culture, Stock Island’s a great place to relax and experience the Florida Keys!

Red Grouper Amenities: The Red Grouper is tastefully outfitted with everything you need during your vacation. Amenities include:

- 1 Queen Bedroom with a closet and dresser
- Full Bathroom (tub shower, sink, and toilet) with towels
- Kitchen (large refrigerator, stovetop, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster) with a breakfast bar
- Living room with Full sized futon (sheets available), TV with Direct TV, IPod Dock and Speakers
- 2 person kayak available for check-out at the Ship Store
- Large outdoor deck with table, chairs, umbrella, BBQ grill
- Rooftop sitting area with chairs
- Vehicle parking next to the houseboat
- Bring your boat to Key West! Ask about additional dockage within the marina.
- Pet Friendly ($50.00 per week)
- Thorough cleaning service before and after each stay

**Please note: Because the houseboat is located in an active marina, adjacent boats come and go. We do our best to represent the property accurately, but the neighboring vessels may differ between the photos on this site and the current conditions.
