***Floating Tiny Home for Adventurous Campers*** Welcome aboard “The Happy Crabby” floating tiny home in Key Largo, as seen in COASTAL LIVING! What can we say, there is nothing like a stay on this tiny slice of paradise, anchored in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico! This floating home is a magnet for stunning sunset/sunrise views from your porch. Fish and swim off your platform. Please read all the way through to ensure you have a complete understanding of what this outdoor adventure entails! As you relax under your umbrella with a cold drink in hand, watch as dolphins, manatees and other indigenous wildlife grace you with their presence. A gas BBQ is provided to help you cook up that catch of the day and we have provided utensils to make your floating stay as convenient as possible. ...***Floating Tiny Home for Adventurous Campers*** Welcome aboard “The Happy Crabby” floating tiny home in Key Largo, as seen in COASTAL LIVING!

As you relax under your umbrella with a cold drink in hand, watch as dolphins, manatees and other indigenous wildlife grace you with their presence. A gas BBQ is provided to help you cook up that catch of the day and we have provided utensils to make your floating stay as convenient as possible. Enjoy the top window views from your loft bed in the morning and in the evening as you star gaze. Inside this quaint and meticulously laid out jewel, you will find a top of the line cooler to keep your drinks and food cold and ready at all times. There is a comfortable futon couch for kicking up your feet on the rare occasion you want to be inside during your stay in the tropics. Appreciate the neatly organized sitting area, kitchen and wet bath (complete with air temperature shower and chemical toilet), flat screen TV, DVD player and large fan to keep you cool at night and during the day. The main indoor hot water shower and indoor bathroom is onshore where you dock your dinghy. A hard to find luxury added to this rental is your own 9.4ft SunDolphin water tender dinghy to transport you in and out from shore! This gives you complete privacy, not relying or having to wait upon someone to transport you every time. The dinghy is for max 3 people, so be sure to pack light as you travel with 2 adults plus luggage. The 1.4hp motor is not fast paced for the safety of inexperienced boaters. Enjoy the slowed down, strolling pace from your rental to shore. Seeing as the Florida Keys are a kayaker's and fisherman’s paradise, having a perk like this on your Florida Keys vacation makes the experience that much more adventurous and fun! Sunset trolls on the water and your approximately 15 minute rides to and from shore are made even more exciting as you are visited by dolphins and other aquatic life. You'll pass by Blackwater Siren and Gilbert’s, two nearby spots that have great food, drinks and live entertainment. You can pull up at Gilbert’s Tiki Bar, which is the largest in the Florida Keys, and relax in a lounge chair on the groomed beach. You will find jet ski, kayak and other water sport rentals available to you on the beach as well. Other attractions like John Pennekamp State Park, with some of the best snorkelling in the world, are also only a short drive down the road from your stay. Our wonderful online and on location hosts will be in touch with you from booking onwards and will be there at the marina to greet you, show you your private dinghy, explain your cabin and then leave you to relax! Check in must happen between the hours of 2 and 5 so please arrange to arrive on time, or even early! Grab a bite to eat or cold drink at the Blackwater Siren while you wait and possibly get checked in a little early! On site, secured parking, onshore bathrooms and a passcode entry shower is also available at the marina dock where you will dock your water tender while onshore. “The Happy Crabby” is a completely green unit running on solar power, making it a friend to the Florida Keys and a treasure to this beautiful area. Please note that this means you must be conscious of your power usage. Please no appliances that pull large energy loads, like hair dryers etc, or you will quickly use up the stored power and have to wait for the batteries to recharge. Come experience the Florida Keys in the way it deserves to be experienced. On the water! DISCLAIMER: This is an outdoor experience reserved for camping, outdoors, adventurous people. Please do not book this if you cannot be flexible with weather, wildlife or the water. You are on the water and on a still night there may be mosquitos so please come prepared with your choice of bug repellant. As a reminder, like camping, there is no AC. We do offer an exhaust fan, bedside fan and a bug screen so you can keep your door open during the night. Seeing as you are in the Keys you most likely won't be spending your days in doors, so just bring light sleeping attire to keep you cool. Please pack light! You reach your unit with a 9.4 foot dinghy and large suitcases will both take up space and weigh down your boat. We advise that if you are staying in the area for awhile that you pack an overnight bag to take while you campout on our units. Check in times are 2-5! Our on location host will be in touch with you prior to your arrival to set a more firm time and we ask that you respect her time and arrive within the alotted time. More
