Mike or Amber Bixby purchased this house boat in 2014
What better way to experience Florida than staying on a houseboat in a great location. Most of our outdoor activities involve water and this is great way to add to the adventure.
This is a very comfortable houseboat with all the features of a small condo. From the living room/salon area and bedrooms, to the kitchen with full size fridge, we furnished it for comfort.
My son, Godson, and family friend traveled from Missouri to Florida to watch a couple spring training baseball games and enjoy the area. The boat owners met us at the marina, and treated us like longtime friends. The owner gave us a thorough tour of the boat and surrounding facilities ensuring that we were comfortable. The boat was beyond our expectations; modern, plenty of room, and a great view. The marina's ammenitues (two restaurants, fitness center, pool, public shower facilities, etc) were the icing on the cake. I'd recommend this rental above any four star hotel I've stayed in.
We can only repeat what others have said about this boat and the entire rental experience. We arrived in town early and called Mike, who was extremely wonderful about meeting us and letting us check in early. The boat is beautiful and the marina outstanding. The weather was not cooperative but we didn't even mind being house-bound a couple of days - it was truly a vacation. We hope to do a repeat trip next year.
Our (two couples) stay on this houseboat will be memorable. The owners had thought of everything we could need and were responsive to our questions immediately. We were so pleased with the amenities at the marina that were included: access to two really good restaurants, laundry facilities, private shower rooms (but there is a shower on the boat), and a workout room. We felt very secure in the gated pier the houseboat was docked on.
Our stay included some warm days when we could enjoy the two decks--even saw a dolphin. There were some cool and windy days when we spent some time indoors and the space was generous enough for not only the four of us, but to add two visitors.
We had the opportunity to enjoy and take pictures of amazing sunsets and sunrises and numerous birds. Just a walk on the dock was filled with interesting sights with the variety of houseboats, fishing boats and sailboats.
We would advise anyone looking for a unique experience to consider a stay on this houseboat! Hosts Amber, Mike and Debbie will make your stay one to remember.
Well, we could not have imagined how amazing staying on this boat was. The pictures do not do it justice. It is incredibly roomy. We could have made every meal on the boat whether grilling or cooking in the kitchen. The beds are really comfortable. The boat is immaculate. Mike and Amber were awesome, flexible and responsive. The Marina had everything we needed and there is a Publix within walking distance. Beautiful white sand beaches 20 minutes away. We cannot wait to return!! One of our favorite vacations.
This weekend adventure started as a whim with a couple of friends. We knew we wanted to ride somewhere, we just didn't know where that "somewhere" was going to be. After doing a little research on the geography of our trip, we stumbled upon this little gem. Nestled into a very nice marina on the West Coast of Florida is this absolutely adorable house boat, in immaculate condition. Mike met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the boat and how to locate all of the hidden light switches. The boat is very clean and well maintained in a Marina that has what you need to make yourself at home. We had a fantastic time and will definitely stay here again.
Just wanted to say our stay on the houseboat was outstanding!! The boat is very clean and well equipped.. The area is perfect with great restaurants and the views are awesome…
