About Jordan

Stock Island Marina Village is a newly developed marina, just beyond the noise and crowds of the world famous Duval Street in Key West, Florida. A pioneer on the developing forefront of the rustic Stock Island, Stock Island Marina Village is redefining the boater experience with an unparalleled level of hospitality and service. As Destination Experts and Experience Providers with guests as the highest priority, Stock Island Marina Village is the best marina in South Florida.

Why Jordan chose Key West

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!

What makes this house boat unique

"Boatel" guests are truly guests of the Marina Village, and welcome to use any and all of the long list of first class amenities on site. This includes the complimentary shuttle to downtown Key West, two dog parks, state of the art laundry facilities, 24-hour fitness center, and much more!

Gray Snapper Houseboat on Stock Island

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay on the Gray Snapper for 10 days. It was comfortable, clean, well equipped, and off the beaten track. Our only issue was the periodic noise from neighbors playing music loud outside. They were sensitive and turned their music down when we requested.

Parking right next to the Gray Snapper was a real plus. The Stock Island Marina management was very helpful. Check in was a bit complicated by lack of directions on where to go to get the key.....that should definitely be simplified.

But once we got checked in, we were glad for the overall peace and quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of downtown Key West.....and we were only 15 minutes from downtown Key West.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed numerous places in the Key West area and decided to try something different and found the boatels listed for Stock Island Marina and we were not disappointed. The Gray Snapper was as described...neat, clean, tidy. And at night, very quiet!! Nice being away from the hustle and bustle of Davol Street. I have been telling everyone about this place and look forward to booking a return trip.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have family in Stock Island & this was in great proximity to their place. It's just perfect for two people. If you need to access the college, it is also very close. We didn't feel the need to go into Key West every night & we're happy to eat locally. We are looking forward to next year!

Nice alternative to a hotel

  • 4 of 5

This "boatel" is new and nice. The photos are representative of what you get. The bed was comfortable and there was just the right amount of room to satisfy what I prefer in a vacation rental. We had friendly neighbors and really enjoyed this place. There are lots of fish in the water to view from the deck and that was pretty cool.

Two things to mention: The gravel lot where you park to check in is about 1/4 mile walk from the office on the dock. If you have mobility issues, you'll need someone else in your party to check in for you or perhaps make arrangements so management can let you drive in closer to the office for check in. (likewise if you're checking in during a storm). My activity app showed the round trip to be 0.6miles. For the money you're spending, it seems the check-in should be less of a hassle.

The second thing is that the bathroom, although it was very clean looking, had a constant urine odor. The toilet waste is stored on/under the boat, so this may be unavoidable.

If not for the two issues listed above, I would have given 5 stars.
