THE GREEN TURTLE - A FUNKY FLOATING COTTAGE WITH DIRECT OCEAN ACCESS

Key West House Boat Rental Photos and Description

1 Queen bedroom, 1 Queen Sofa Bed, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 4

The Green Turtle is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath floating house located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect way to experience Key West by water. Bring your boat and tie up to the Green Turtle, or just enjoy the ocean breeze from the veranda. The houseboat is brand new and has been outfitted with new furnishings and artwork, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with luxury towels and linens. We have a gym and a dog park at the marina that are also available for your use. Enjoy all the comforts of home with the atmosphere of maritime living!

Stock Island is located just over the bridge from Key West, about a 15 minute ride to Duval Street. It's close enough to enjoy all the action of downtown but kick back in a more laid back atmosphere. Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboards and commercial fishermen, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel.

Stock Island Marina Village is a multi-use Marine Community located in historic Safe Harbor and serving live-aboard, recreational, and commercial vessels. We offer free wifi internet, use of our new gym, dog park and laundry facilities. Our office is open 6 days a week, and we have security on site after office hours so you can feel safe during your stay. Our residents are very friendly, courteous, and knowledgable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of Key West life.

- 1 Queen Bedroom with a closet and dresser

My husband and I drove 2 1/2 days to get here, and it was so worth it! Being away from downtown, but still very close to the action, was just what we were looking for. The boatel was very comfortable, very quiet, yet we were only 10 minutes away from Slathers Beach, maybe 20 minutes from the state park beach and the downtown area. We will be back.

Quiet and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
Loved the "Green Turtle" Perfect for the two of us. Marina was clean and had a very safe feel. Easy drive to downtown Key West, but we ended up eating almost all our meals on Stock Island. Great choices nearby. Another plus is the new Shrimp Road Grill" food truck parked at the end of our dock. Food was great -especially liked breakfast. Favorite thing was sitting on the back patio with a cold beverage watching the wildlife . Staff at Stock Island Marina were friendly and very helpful. will definately return!!

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We loved it here.

It was so relaxing to come from dinner amid the congestion of Old Town Key West and spend the rest of the evening sitting on the covered deck as our “boatel” gently rocked beneath us.

The accommodations couldn’t have been better. The houseboat was spotless; every amenity we could want was there.

We’ve already recommended this boatel to friends, along with our favorite activities on this visit to the Keys: an afternoon of dolphin and bird watching off Key West with “Captain Victoria” and a visit to the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, on Key Largo at mile marker 93.6.

Peaceful Escape, Minutes from Downtown Action

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to the Green Turtle was fantastic. Despite all the improvements and renovations going on at the marina, it was still very quiet and peaceful the whole week. The locals living in the marina were friendly and happy to give recommendations for any questions we had.

Jana and the rest of the marina staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay as stress-free as possible.

The marina makes you feel far removed from the touristy feel of Duvall Street, yet you're only a 10 minute drive when the mood strikes to go out for the day or night and enjoy the festivities. There were plenty of fish swimming around the lagoon including some nurse sharks and rays. A 15 minute kayak ride out of the marina brings you to several wrecked boats that make for good snorkeling and photo ops.

All in all a great stay and would definitely return!

Charming House

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the Green Turtle. It had everything you would need for a week-long stay. A few of our favorite activities: sitting on the deck, enjoying the peaceful area and constant fish sightings; grilling fresh fish from the Eaton St Seafood Market; being away from the craziness of Key West but having it all so close by. Be sure to rent scooters from Island Scooters - it's a mere hop fom the houseboat. Next time we will be taking advantage of the kayaks.

A Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5
The Green Turtle was perfect, all the modern conveniences a couple could need. Very clean, very comfortable - it was a great week. My only comment would be that there was no safe way to exit the water from the kayak we never got to use. A ladder on our dock would have been perfect. All in all I would rent again in a minute. - Gary K. Pt Pleasant, NJ

In 2007, the New York Times said, “The real Key West, It’s not even located on Key West proper anymore, but just over the Cow Key Channel Bridge, on the even tinier Stock Island.” Home to a diverse group of residents and business (and boats), Stock Island is a little quieter than its neighbor Key West, but still close enough to experience all Key West has to offer. Named after the livestock that used to call it home, Stock Island has a unique commercial history. The docks that currently house the Green Turtle were once lined with hundreds of fishing and shrimping vessels. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, proximity to Key West, and old island culture, Stock Island’s a great place to relax and experience the Florida Keys!
