Well yes, a/c is noisy and everything is not brand new...but it's A BOAT, not a resort! :) Really nice hideaway, value for money. Beds are comfortable enough and it's great to have breakfast on your own deck. For two people staying in a medium-sized boat we had more space than in our apartment back home!

found mold on pillow cases and the floor gushed everytime youd walk. Later I found the boat sunk and only had been plugged and raised one month before we rented. Only good thing is the view. The price was cheap for a place on the keys. But YOUR BETTER if you rent a tent.

We havent had a boat sink there since hurricane katrina. I have a manager on the property to take care of the peoples needs. To say the boat sank 1 week ago makes me laugh,I think I would know if one of my boats sank. More

I was surprised at the high ratings for this place. There were 4 boats parked very close together. Fortunately, the people next door were quiet. I can't say that for the air conditioner on the next boat that had an annoyingly loud clanging sound. I never saw George. The cleaning lady was very nice and helpful but I didn't find... More

There is no easier and faster way to get out on the water than to check into a houseboat hotel. You need not have a boating license or navigation skills. These floating hotel rooms are permanently tied to a dock right in picturesque Largo Sound. With opportunities to rent power boats and kayaks right at the hotel docks, there are... More

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

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

I dont understand why she didnt brin it to our atention, we would have gladly showed her how it worked, and why she was using the shower curtain for a towel since there was a stack of towels set up on the...

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,...
