About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 8

Come stay aboard our FABULOUS houseboat Libra! Docked in one of Key West's most exclusive yacht club marinas, our guests have free access to a host of "members only" amenities including an infinity-edge swimming pool, private beach, tiki bar, fitness facility, sauna, clubhouse, onsite restaurant, free parking and much more!

This luxury home on the water is completely air-conditioned and heated to keep you comfortable even on the hottest days! Our full kitchen makes meal preparation a snap with a full size fridge, microwave convection oven and cooktop. We also provide a Kuerig coffee maker and the pods for easy one step coffee anytime! All linens and towels are included in the rental as well, so no worrying about laundry while your on vacation!

The huge outside roof deck is a great spot to enjoy a meal with family and friends, or a quiet cocktail watching the sun set over the water. The boat was specifically built for us and designed with a renter in mind. There are 3 private staterooms, the aft cabin has a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress, while the mid ship cabin has a full size bed with the same mattress, and another stateroom has a twin bunk bed. The sofa in the living room folds out to a queen size bed for additional sleeping options.There is a flat screen 40" TV in the living room area and the custom handmade wood trim throughout the boat gives you the overall comfort of a luxury home on the water.

THE KEY WEST HARBOR MARINA...Guests on board Libra enjoy full membership privileges at the Key West Harbour Marina including dining at the gourmet restaurant and lounging below, at the marina's big harbor front infinity pool. Steps from the pool area and an outdoor bar is the quiet beach with chaises, a Tiki bar out on the point, and a fully equipped gym that includes a sauna. Sunday nights there is even a potluck happy hour party organized by boat owners at the marina and all of our guests are welcome to join in the fun!

SleepAfloat boats never leave the docks but for those looking to spend time out on the open waters there is a sailing company that operates daily charters right from the marina. These are fully customizable charters that may include activities such as snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. If interested, please inquire about special SleepAfloat guest pricing.

Our ultimate goal is that each of our guests have a vacation of lifetime when they stay with us. We strive to go the extra mile to make your experience truly memorable. With locations in Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Key West, Key Largo, Port Canaveral and West Palm, you may never book another hotel room again!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great stay on the Libra! It's tasteful, clean and comfortable. Cold, quiet AC, good beds and linens. Good water pressure and hot water. .The outside upper deck is awesome and offers shade or sun and an excellent view of the marina. So relaxing to sit up there and watch the beautiful boats come and go. But bring bug spray or citronella candles - the no-see-ums (sp?) were bad at sunset. Ray provided timely communication and was helpful and great to work with. I loved that all the light switches were labeled so you know what's where. Policies and information were printed out and easy to follow. A very hassle-free weekend. We all agreed that staying on a houseboat was pretty cool. The boat owners in the marina were friendly and welcoming. Very laid-back vibe and very dog-friendly. We'd definitely stay on the Libra again.

clean, comfortable and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of four adults that stayed for a long weekend break from the north cold and snow. Property was clean and comfortable for all. Marina was a working yacht club but actually nice and quiet. An extended stay would not have been any problem. Parking a little tight close to the houseboat but not an issue if you park out further. Would rent again. Good proximity to Key West.

very nice houseboat in a beautiful facility

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful experience staying on the Libra, very clean and lots of utensils provided.

The harbour is nice and clean unfortunately there was a strong odour of sewage on the day we left, not sure if this is a routine when someone is taking care of the septic system.

The houseboat is beautiful and very steady

Photos shown are very accurate.
