I stayed for a week in boat #4. Loved the laid back atmosphere, rented a bicycle from across the highway and rode up to happy hour every day, met some great people here. George I will definitely be back next spring hopefully for 2 weeks. Loved boat #4! What a view from the sun deck on top

Stayed 2 nights last week. As soon as we got out of the car and walked around I wanted to leave! The boat was old, smelled,floors slanted, no dish towels, no hand towels in the bathroom. The water did not work at the bathroom sink, had to turn on the shower to wash hands. I woke up in the morning... More

My 13 year old grandson and I stayed on boat #1 for 3 nights in early Feb. 14. We loved it. The boat was seriously funky. Although there is evidence of recent professional level work on the dock and shore side utilities, the boat itself was a hodge podge of cartoonish repairs and barely functioning features that we found charming,...

Good bang for your buck. Great location overall. Across the street from hideout restaurant, good eats. They have an all-u-can-eat fish fry on Friday nights with free beer which is very well worth it. We stayed in unit 3. We had our own patio which included a grill and were steps away from a small sandy beach. The water is... More

cheap, yes...however, these are VERY old non-moving houseboats. For the price was OK, however, everything these people offer for rent (boats, kayaks, etc.) are JUNK. I would not use any of the equipment. We booked two nights in boat 4...wasn't too bad for the price, however, the floors were rotten, felt like you would fall through if you stepped too... More

We checked in and within an hour we were ready to leave. Our mistake was to inspect the unit on arrival but it was too late for that because George had already left for the day and process the full payment BEFORE we arrived. We contacted him and requested a refund but he said the terms were clear no refunds... More

Pro - Fantastic location (yes, really nice, next to the water) - Restaurant opposite is ok for breakfast - Relatively inexpensive Con - Whole thing is extremely dated and in bad repair. One wall in our shower was nearly rotten - Low water pressure – having a shower requires patience - Two rooms smelled of sewer - The sheets were... More

We just spent a few days at the Largo Sound Houseboat rentals - THE BOATAL. I DO NOT recommend this place! We would have left immediately but the owner charged us the full 4 days we booked for and refused to refund it. These units are leaning to one side - so you better be careful when getting out of...
