About Sam Cribbs
I grew up in a coastal area in Oregon and have always lived near the water. It has been a part of my life that I have enjoyed either through boating, fishing or diving. Now that my wife and I live in Florida we are enjoying the pleasures of the warmer waters on the East Coast. We have both lived on floating homes in the past so when we saw this unique property we could not pass it up. We have enjoyed turning it into the home it is today. We hope you will share in this wonderful lifestyle by staying on our floating vacation rental. Sincerely, Sam Cribbs
What makes this House Boat unique

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our week in the floating chapel. It was a perfect homebase for enjoying local golf, beaches, parks and shopping. The home could not be any more comfortable and the surroundings make it a most memorable vacation home.
Fabulously unique place
An absolutely beautiful and unique place. Extremely clean, beautiful and comfortable furnishing. Loved the folding patio doors that open to the deck on the water. Each evening we enjoyed cocktails as we watched the sun set. Very nice owners (Sam and Linda) who were very accommodating. We will certainly be back.
Our stay was like a dream come true! Our accommodations were "top notch!" Bedrooms, bathrooms and living area were beautiful AND very comfortable. The Kitchen was complete with all the furnishings. We look forward to returning! We could easily get used to Marina Life! Great restaurants were within walking distance. No need for a car.
