  • As Advertised...

    "We have stayed in many places where the pictures of the homes were much more inviting than the real thing. However, in this case, "As advertised" were the first words that came to mind when we first arrived at the Boat House. The owners investment in the 2014 remodel of this quaint bay front home was nothing more than a spectacular collaboration of beauty, style, and comfort all together in this fantastic location. Although my family is comprised of all FL natives, we had never visited LGI before, but sometimes you save the best for last. There is something nice to be said about being able to be "disconnected" from the world while on vacation. Being accessible by boat only meant that there was no traffic noise. We only heard the sounds of the crashing waves from the beach side, the splashing of the mullet jumping in the water on the bay side, or the screeching of the local ospey. We thought we would possibly miss not having TV/Satellite or Wi-Fi (although it was advertised that Wi-Fi could be made available) but it was actually quite refreshing. The only devices we used were our phones to check the weather for fishing excursions or the afternoon forecast before heading over to the beachside. Otherwise, we realized that we were not missing a thing being "disconnected". We did bring Blue-Rays/DVD to watch on the TV and games for night time family activities. It was so great waking up in the morning to go on a fishing excursion in our boat or kayaking the bay and return to spend the afternoons on the beach. The Boat House truly offers the best of both worlds which made this the perfect location for my family who loves all things related to the water. Our 2 boys (10 and 6 years old) made great memories here this summer by catching their first snook (w/many to follow) and inventing the game of coconut soccer. Our last night was the "cherry on top" for our visit to LGI when we were able to witness a sea turtle returning to her birthplace to lay her eggs. This was a truly amazing experience and one many will never get to witness. We will definitely be returning to the Boat House for years to come to continue making these precious memories and bask in all that LGI and the Boat House has to offer."

  • PERFECT for us!!!!

    "The Thompson's from Missouri LOVED our vacation from May 23-30th, 2016!!!!!!!!!!! We had an AMAZING time! Everything we needed was there except for the food. The beach is absolutely perfect!!! This is the place to go for seclusion and relaxation! There were a few families here and there, but we felt like we had our own private beach! This made the seashells and creature hunting so much more fun as we didn't have to fight for space! Snorkeling was awesome!!! We came at the perfect time- the water was calm all except for one day. If you are looking for luxury, this place isn't for you. If you're looking for a nice place to sleep with the essentials so you can be at the beach every day--HAVE NO FEAR AND BOOK IT NOW! If we get the chance to return to the Island, I would book this house again. The house is literally just a few steps to the beach. I always wonder if people were exaggerating or not when they say that---->> this property is like walking from your car in the parking lot of Wal-Mart to the front door. It is right there! the only thing I would do differently next time is have a boat rented ahead of time. I would have liked to go exploring. When we went, all of the boat rentals were taken for the holiday weekend. We appreciate being able to use this house and can't wait to go back! Thank- you so much for letting us stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • Beautiful home in a prime location. Bay in the front with private dock and beach in the back

    "This home is very comfortable and wide open. There are a lot of stairs but when you see the view, it's so worth it!"
