Lil Bamboo is a great houseboat located on Dream Bay Resort. Big enough for 2 and probably fine if you have one or two young kids as well! It's private and well equipped. It feels a bit like luxury camping with the best sunset you can imagine. Centrally located if you want to snorkel/dive, drive around in a convertible, visit...

We rented the Deckhouse for a week and it was very nice.Mom had her own bedroom and bathroom which she loved and the setting was gorgeous.We like privacy and relaxation and this had both. The house sits back from the private beach and that was just fine. This is a private vacation home and not a villa. We have stayed...

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Our mattresses do get a lot of use, since we stay so busy, and we replace them almost every year. It's time for a replacement in Banana Cabana. We appreciate your feedback and hope you come back again soon!

Stayed with friends but loved the resort! Nice setup for hammocks and just tables under the palms. Restrooms clean. Great view on the water. Very nice. Would have stayed longer given time. Prices were pretty reasonable from my research.

Beautiful view, beautiful outside property, great location ............but just okay living quarters. I guess I'm spoiled - but when I go on vacation, I want to stay somewhere just as nice as my home or possibly nicer. The villa is a trailer and it has so much potential! Cute colors and enough space but it's the little things that make...

I'm very sorry you were disappointed with the shower curtain, the mattress, and the AC grates. We replace those grates frequently. I guess in a saltwater environment they rust faster, but we do replace them every year. I will look into the other issues you experienced. We hope you will give us another chance and stay with us again.

This April my husband and I joined another couple for a week in the banana cabana and had a wonderful time! Beach was small but lovely with plenty of chairs for lounging, a scattering of tiki shade huts, some decent snorkeling in the grass beds off the beach and along the jetty, and friendly guests. The deck was great for...

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay! I just wanted to point out that we should have plenty of cooking supplies - pots, pans, and measuring spoons should be in the cabinets and drawers.

We were there in 2012 and were very disappointed. The so called manager was Tanya's younger son who was kept busy entertaining a couple of young ladies who were much nicer to view than the resort.

Wow, such a nasty review...and 4 years later? Things have changed at Dream Bay, although I'm still the owner. My young son passed away in 2014 in a boating accident. Rock Star died the same year. We have wonderful new marina tenants - quieter ones I suppose - but many guests loved both my son and Rock Star. I'm sorry...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dream Bay Resort is a small, family-owned resort and marina located in Key Largo, Florida. We offer a limited number of vacation rentals with dockage and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico. For many of our guests, one of the truly memorable parts of their vacation at Dream Bay is meeting all of the colorful locals that reside here. Friendships are made and guests often wish to stay in contact. Pets are welcome, trailer parking, and boat slips on site. Wireless internet is also available on the entire property, including the beach.Our friendly "compound" includes four rental houses, plus a small marina, which allows for a boat to kept here at no additional charge. A fishing jetty, tiki, picnic tables, and a small assortment of other residents and guests add to the laid-back, "keysey" charm. We are also convenient to Key Largo's main attractions, like John Pennekamp Park, many fine restaurants, sport fishing fleet and shopping. ... more   less
