My husband and I both have very stressful jobs and was looking for a place to unwind and relax. Upon our arrival, Mark met us at the pier and showed us around the area and the houseboat. We even got the privilege of meeting his wife. Both of them went out of their way to make sure our stay was excellent. My husband and I both agree this is the first time we have ever gone on a mini vacation and felt relaxed and not like we needed a vacation. We never left the marina. We ate at the deli which has excellent food. Not to mention a great couple who runs it. We ate at Chase’s. The chicken wings were superb along with the service. All the other people staying on boats and using them were extremely friendly. I felt safe and like we were in a tight knit community.
We had an amazing time. We loved the houseboat! The marina had everything we needed. Every morning we had the best breakfast at Connies Deli. Mark and Dawn were awesome. Mark gave us a tour of his immaculate houseboat and was available for us at any time. He has a huge personality and Mark and Dawn are people you could become great friends with. We saw turtles and alligators right off the porch. We absolutely loved it and will be back!
Beautiful river home
We loved staying here. Beautiful home. Fantastic views. The owners were friendly and helpful. We will go back for sure !
Great location, lots of fun
We had a blast staying on the houseboat at the Port of Sanford Marina. We began with an impromptu "pub crawl" through downtown Sanford and surrounding areas, taking advantage of the local eateries as well. We rounded out our trip with stops in Taveres, Eustis, and Mount Dora, for sightseeing, dining, and excursions by rail! We ate breakfast at The Deli, which is very close to the houseboat; and, we took advantage of the pool and bar that are adjacent to the docks.
Slice of paradise!
Not even sure where to begin. Mark (the owner) is great! His wife has to be awesome too because she made sure that the last man that still irons his work shorts had a steam iron just a couple hours after checking in. Pics don’t do this houseboat justice. The pics look great, but in reality it’s even better! Could have sat on the front or back deck all day and night! You forget you are on a boat until you look outside. Views are amazing, interior is Immaculate and Mark will go out of the way to make you feel welcome! Anyone would enjoy this hidden gem! Can’t wait to return and spend more time here!
Tony is the type of guest host's hope for.... He was extremely easy to get along with.... Very pleasent to deal with.... We had great communication from time of booking through time of check out.... He stayed on our boat with his best friend who just happens to be his future wife.... They left a day early to rush and get married in the Key's..... We definitely were sad to see them go especially after seeing how immaculate they left our property.... We wish them a great marriage and all the best in life and we will definitely welcome them back should they ever have the need or desire to visit us again.... Thank you again both of you.....
