Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time for Memorial Day weekend. The houseboat was clean, the views are beautiful, and everyone on the Marina is very friendly and helpful. There is a great breakfast cafe right across the street and tons of stuff to do close by. The best thing about the vacation was how helpful and attentive the property owner was. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and gave great suggestions for activities in the area. We even forgot our iPad and she held onto it for us! I would recommend this houseboat to any age group, large or small and especially anyone with pets.

One of the Best Weekends!!

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was new, clean and so comfortable. I never sleep through the night but on the houseboat I slept through the night and woke up to beautiful sunrises. We had floats which we used right there in the bay and the marina has easy access for boats. My friends picked us up and we spent the day at the sandbar and then went snorkeling. The marina has a fire pit area where we had a crab boil with 20 people. It was amazing. I highly recommend staying on a house boat at this marina. Everyone who stayed there and worked there were so friendly.

Impressive houseboat accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A very clean, cozy and functional houseboat accommodation near to Key Largo.

The marina had everything required for our stay and the boat owner was attentive and within easy reach. We had one problem with the fridge and that was replaced quickly.

The view from the boat was fantastic and the area very quiet.

We had a great time and would definitely consider renting here on our next trip to the Keys.
