Overview

Key West House Boat Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 sleeper sofa, 2 bath, sleeps 8

Come stay aboard our AWESOME houseboat Libra! Docked in one of Key West's most exclusive yacht club marinas, our guests have free access to a host of 'members only' amenities including a swimming pool, private beach, tiki bar, fitness facility, sauna, clubhouse, onsite restaurant and much more!

We have custom designed this boat to give our guests the overall comfort and feel of a luxury home on the water. There are three private staterooms; one queen, one full and one bunk bed set, all with memory foam. In addition, the sofa in the main salon folds out into a queen size bed.

Beautifully appointed with handmade solid wood cabinets, built-ins, and trim throughout, our houseboat features stainless steel appliances, a large flat screen TV, and central heat and air conditioning. Outside there is a gigantic roof deck with wet bar and party top.

We thought of everything so you don't have to! Our full kitchen makes meal preparation a snap with a full size fridge with in-door ice and water dispenser, microwave convection oven and flush cooktop. We also provide a Kuerig coffeemaker and the pods for convenient complimentary coffee anytime! All linens and towels are included in the rental as well, so no worrying about laundry while your on vacation! The huge outside roof deck is a great spot to enjoy a meal with family and friends, or a quiet cocktail watching the sunset over the water.

Located in a very quiet and secluded marina on Stock Island, our houseboat is the perfect spot for those looking to enjoy a relaxing vacation in paradise. Key West Harbour Yacht Club Marina is only a short 10 minute drive to downtown Key West and Duval Street. There is free parking at the marina and we do suggest renting or bringing a vehicle with you.

This boat is rented for accommodation purposes only. The boat DOES NOT leave the dock. Loud parties are prohibited as marina quiet hours begin at 9:30pm.

**Base price listed for 2 guests. Each additional guest is $35/night.

Cleaning fee: $211

Non-refundable insurance fee: $39

Taxes: 12.5%.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great stay on the Libra! It's tasteful, clean and comfortable. Cold, quiet AC, good beds and linens. Good water pressure and hot water. .The outside upper deck is awesome and offers shade or sun and an excellent view of the marina. So relaxing to sit up there and watch the beautiful boats come and go. But bring bug spray or citronella candles - the no-see-ums (sp?) were bad at sunset. Ray provided timely communication and was helpful and great to work with. I loved that all the light switches were labeled so you know what's where. Policies and information were printed out and easy to follow. A very hassle-free weekend. We all agreed that staying on a houseboat was pretty cool. The boat owners in the marina were friendly and welcoming. Very laid-back vibe and very dog-friendly. We'd definitely stay on the Libra again.

Life on a Houseboat

  • 5 of 5

This was a first living on a houseboat. Our stay on the Libra was fun, fun, fun. Nice people all around. Great facilities at the marina clubhouse, pool & beach. Convenient for getting to Duval Street. Helpful site manager. Would definitely do this again. J. Dalsesg

Amazing stay on the Libra

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week-long stay on the Libra houseboat. Our group of 4 had plenty of space on the boat - all of us agreed it was superior to a hotel in every way. The boat and the marina are absolutely beautiful, with a really nice group of people around. We enjoyed watching the sunrise from the roof deck and using the beautiful pool and beach at the marina. Aside from having no internet connection on the boat, I can't think of a single criticism of our stay. We had a small problem with the TV, and the site manager Ray was responsive and helped us figure everything out. It was a rare occasion where the photos of the boat online didn't even come close to showing the true beauty of the boat and the setting. I would love to stay there again.

Great Boat & Beautiful Marina!

  • 5 of 5

The Libra was very nice, much better & chepaer than any hotel. The Marina is amazing, quite, peaceful. Nice pool area & little beach. Bring your own boat is the best part. Great food, close to Key West yet far enough away from the busy of Duvall. Only one little complaint TOWELS. They give you one towel to last the whole week so plan on washing them or bringing extra & I HAVE to say please wash your throw rugs in between customer stays! I would absolutely stay on the LIBRA again!

Very relaxing marina vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time on the boat. It was nice and fairly well maintained. There was some wind damage on the top deck that has not been repaired. No Wifi was a concern but not a problem. My local hotspot worked fine. The TV did not get major channels. Also, I am surprised nobody has mentioned the fighter jets constantly overhead during the day. Quiet at night though. The club house facilities were great and Sunday brunch was spectacular.

Fantastic houseboat in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful trip, first time staying on a houseboat and loved it. The boat is fantastic, very clean and well equipped. Ray was outstanding and took great care of us. The marina is fantastic with a great pool and club house. Only thing that could use improving is wifi. We needed to work and had to go to the club house to do so. We would return for sure!

Key West get away

  • 4 of 5

The houseboat was all we hoped it would be. The only problems were no internet access and the lounge chairs on the deck were torn and unusable

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! The marina is working on setting up a new network that extends Wifi to our dock but until then guests have to go to the clubhouse for connection. Hope to host you again soon! Best, Team SleepAfloat
