Property description

Welcome to the newest in my small fleet! She is my pride for sure, her name is Big Bamboo and is gorgeous. The boat is slipped at the end of a dock! So you only have one boat on your one side and a beach on the other. The Upper deck has bamboo rails and a bamboo roof, bar fridge, also a sun deck with lounge chairs. a table that seats 6 is under the covered area for those who like to dine outside. The cabin sleeps 5 (in a pinch 6) and has all bamboo flooring, thatched ceilings and a tropical feel. The bedroom has a *king size bed, or 2 twins and has dressing area with a vessel sink. It's in the forward area of the boat so has ample privacy. The main salon has a day bed, flat screen and chair. The galley is fully equipped with everything you should want, blenders, full size fridge/freezer. 3 top stove with oven. The bathroom has a shower and working toilet, vessel sink. The dining area has a day bed that pulls to a full size bed as well as a dinette that drops down to a large twin. There are propane grills for your use as well as a paddle board and kayaks . The property is privately owned and has a great friendly and key-sy feel. Also have 2 other houseboats on the property, please inquire for photos and information. As I advertise on other sites, the calender does not reflect availability so you must inquire.
* There is a one time $50 pet fee
**Big bamboos rates vary, standard nightly rate is $145, additional guest fee of $10 per day and a $50 non- refundable cleaning fee which are not included with the booking price.
* the boat has many levels! and can be difficult to maneuver for people with agility issues.
**Starting December 18th through May 1st there will be a 4 night minimum stay.

Key Largo is the dive capital of the world, the and sport fishing capital as well. The 'Big Bamboo' is Located in a privately owned and operated marina and vacation rental property. During your stay, the use of a paddle board and kayak are provided. There is a bathhouse 20 ft from the beach area, a propane grill, washer and dryer, and tiki huts and palms line the waterfront. The best sunsets in the keys can be enjoyed on our jetty, as well as fishing and star gazing. An eclectic and friendly group of keys residents/ boaters welcome visitors , and will help with any questions you may have. Truly a great keys experience, unpretentious and relaxing. Please note the availability on the calender is not accurate as I list on other sites, so please call or email me for availability!
