About Giana Shiloh

I have hosted guests from all over the world starting in my Brooklyn, NY home since 1992 and now in Key Largo Florida.

I have many passions in life: Kayaking, motorboating & biking Traveling, and learning languages, the healing arts and music are a few.

Being involved in many projects where compassion and good can be spread tends to mesh and outgrow from those interests and projects.

Movie tastes range from Casablanca to Under the Tuscan Sun- then again, they are both love stories:) Cooking & eating with friends & family makes life special.

What's it like having us as hosts? Its a joy to make people happy, and make for a good time for all.

Giana had worked in the health care field and now her 'patients' are renovating our places, decorating & making our places a good retreat! We are always doing something- gardening, new colors, adding a new kitchen tool

Giana Shiloh purchased this house boat in 2006

Why Giana Shiloh chose Key Largo

Location! We looked throughout the Keys and this end of a quiet street is our lil' piece of paradise: canal full of manatee, bay view and of the Southern Everglades, beautiful kayaks & biking, our beautiful homeowner park beach, walking distance to the farmer's market, grocery and shopping, John Pennecamp coral reef State Park, Dagney Botanical Park,

We fixed up with porcelain tile, big shower, bidet, outdoor kitchen, tropical colors, easy in-out kind of living, loaded the land with tropical fruit trees, flowers, jasmine vines, orchids and palms.

Great Experience and a Great Value!

  • 4 of 5

My Daughter and I stayed at the Manatee Queen and we had a wonderful time. What a great value and fun place to visit. The property was very clean, well furnished and everyone was very accommodating from start to finish.(Maggie and Bob were Great local Host) Went out on the Kayak and seen Dolphins and other wildlife when we were not scuba diving with our group.

We would definitely stay here again.

The only thing that wasn't perfect was a noisy neighbor (memorial day weekend) this could have been the case anywhere and it was only one night.

Horrible experience

  • 1 of 5

I have a hard time believing any reviews of this place that are positive are legitimate. Here are just a few of the multitude of things wrong about this pkace. No locks, No covering for window on door which opened right into area where bed was, very little lighting (none at all where beds were), air conditioner is so loud it is impossible to sleep and it is so hot with no fresh air that air must be on all the time, big cockroaches, palmetto bugs, crawling on wall at night, no comfortable seating anywhere on whole boat, tiny little freezer area in boat refrigerator all frosted over so no chance of ever having any ice, non stop barking from the multiple dogs in neighborhood, three or four old worn mis-matched salvation army or garage sale towels provided, no privacy, there was one beat up old chaise in one tiny area of sun for three rental units, and on and on. The other renerds that shared the "private dock" felt the same way and felt that this property was misrepresented on the Websites it advertises on. We left after one night. The owner returned our deposit but we lost four nights prepaid and shelled out another $1000, to find a room during peak season in Key Largo. What a dumP Run, do not walk, as far away from this place as you can! I have never written a review like this before and we are pretty low maintenance travelers.

We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed on Silver Moon house boat for a week. Saw manatees (a lot of them) in the canals, went to mangrove forest across the bay - beautiful!

There was enough gear for vacation - grill, kayaks, bikes. There is car rentals nearby, but we did not need a car.

Giana and Chanoch were super friendly and helpful.

Very peaceful neighborhood, there is a supermarket and farmers market nearby (10 minutes on a bike), so we did not go to restaurants too often. Mexican (Dolores) food in the trailer at farmers market was awesome. WiFi worked like a charm.
