"Hard to know where to begin... The Big Bamboo is full of charm, comfortable, ideally located and fun for our small family of 2 adults, 1 teenager and 2 small dogs. As mentioned in previous reviews, it *is* a boat so you must be comfortable with steps and maneuvering but we found that to be part of the adventure! The boat was extremely clean, all the furniture was comfortable (especially the king bed!) and we had all we needed for cooking, making drinks and spending the days outdoors.
Abby was gracious, helpful and the perfect hostess! Murphy, her dog, was also a charmer!
The Big Bamboo is tucked into a small resort called Dream Bay. We had no idea that there would be such a fantastic feeling of community and we feel like we truly made new friends!! (we miss you Mark!) From other vacationers to the year-round locals, everyone was welcoming and relaxed. How can you not be when you're in paradise?
The beach with tiki huts, kayaks, hammocks, paddleboards and lounge chairs was perfect!! Very well maintained and clean. Same can be said for the bath house.
We were delighted by the array of fish we saw when we snorkeled right from the beach! Not to mention the manatees in the marina! We appreciated how dog-friendly the community is and the convenience of pick-up bags and well placed, but non-obtrusive, trash cans.
I could go on and on but in summary: If you want a unique vacation that is relaxing, entertaining, and special, you will find it on The Big Bamboo in Key Largo.
