I booked online with a $200 deposit and thought it can't be that bad. It is and worse. This place should be condemned. The house boat I stayed on had a horrible stench and was very dirty. There were termites and cockroaches everywhere. The bed had blood on it and everything was horribly dirty. I left with out a refund.... More

Excellent stay, this is not our first time here and we'll keep coming back. Very convenient for John Pennykamp Park and dog friendly, very good place to visit with other friends renting other houseboats too for exciting vacations for water loving, adventures with friends and family. Very Friendly and Old Florida.

Had a look and decided not to stay. The one unit we saw was run down and dirty, we did not have a choice to see any other units, but after looking around outside and the one unit we did see would not recommend anyone to stay here.

Do not think of it as a hotel. Do not think of it as a house boat. Think of it instead as a redneck floating trailer with all the 'upkeep issues' that come to mind, and think of yourself as 'going camping on the mangroves in Key Largo, but WITHOUT all the issues of putting up a tent, and the...

A hotel that looks good on the paper but is in reality the worse experience ever. A hotel on a boat ? What a great idea. Yes if it was a least clean (humidity smell, dirty sheets, rusty bathroom...) and not managed by someone rising up price when he understands we are toursits easy to cheat on. After one night...

Awesome people. Awesome environment. Just a plain out awesome experience. Prices were absolutely worth it. I travel to the keys a couple times a year and this place is definitely the most laid back down to earth place we've ever stayed at.
