About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Laid Back is a 67 foot long houseboat sitting right on the intracoastal in Fort Myers Beach Florida. She is part of the B&B Aboard fleet and boasts 2 bedrooms and 1 baths. This room is a King size room with a shared full bath. It also has a private back outdoor deck!

The boat is newly renovated with bamboo floors, birch walls and pine beadboard ceilings. If you have never stayed overnight in a boat, but always wanted to, this is a great first step. The boat is appointed like a house and has large it is floating and does give you the experience of living "aboard".

Parking is available for free for one car per room right next to the boat at the listing address.

There is almost always someone around to help with any questions, help to coordinate or arrange activities, etc. Breakfast is served in the morning and includes fruit and bagels as well as coffee and tea.

Oyster Bay Marina is located right in the heart of Fort Myers Beach. You can walk to Bootleggers BBQ, Parrot Key Caribbean Grille, Doc Fords and many more. The beach is 1/2 a mile a way and easily accessible via a short walk or bike ride.

You can bring a car, Uber/Lift are readily available, we have bikes for use for free as well as skateboards. There is also a water taxi that runs during the busy season available via phone to pick you up right off the boats!

This is a water lover's paradise. We can arrange scuba, snorkeling, fishing, spearfishing from local guides and they will pick you up at the boat. We have kayaks and bikes available for use on a first come first serve basis. Paddle the backwaters or take a cruise down to Lover's Key! We rent paddleboards by the day if you want to try something a little harders. From our location you have easy access to Matzanas Pass and all of the bay behind Ft Myers Beach. Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve is just a few miles down the coast and this pristine area is yours for the exploring. We are also just a short drive (3 miles) from Sanibel (URL HIDDEN) of the shelling capitals of the world! If you choose to head out to the beach for the day, we have chairs, coolers and more you can borrow to make your day more enjoyable. If you just want to hang out at our place, we have cornhole, a bocce court and a small man made beach area for you to relax on as well. Or, never leave the boat and just jump in the rooftop hot tub and enjoy the view! (open from 11am till 10pm). We can arrange massages on site as well! Basically, just ask and we can help you find whatever you need!

Bad Experience with this Houseboat

  • 1 of 5

The experience staying on a house boat in Fort Myers was not good. I arrived at the appointed time and tried to enter the boat and room. I was able to enter the boat but not the room. I tried to contact the owner with the telephone number indicated but received no answer. When I contacted VRBO they were very helpful and tried to contact the owner with three additional numbers. No one was able to make contact. Not only did I need to communicate with the owner to get into the room but I also had a question about the bathroom. This venue was indicated as 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom. In reality it was 1 bedroom and 1/4 of a bathroom. The write up did have one small statement regarding a “shared” bathroom. This is such a major issue that it certainly should be highlighted by the owner. No one expects to share a bathroom for a bedroom in the US. VRBO provided a hotel room for the night because they couldn’t contact the owner either. They would not have done that unless they also hit a wall with their attempt to call. I tried to contact him later that night and so did VRBO. Nobody made contact. The next day we both tried again but to no avail. We then left Fort Myers. Days later the owner contacted me by email and denied that anyone tried to talk to him. He said he was there all along. I told him to call VRBO to verify what I was saying but I do not believe he did. He just kept to his story.

Clean, quant and comfortable

We had such a great time staying on this boat for our vacation. I would definitely recommend it. The property was clean and well kept and I especially loved the kayaks and the hot tub.
