Overview

About the property

House Boat, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath

The Red Grouper is one of five 1 BR / 1 BA floating condos* located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect way to experience Key West by water. The interior has been recently remodeled with new furnishings and artwork, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with luxury towels and linens. We also have coin operated laundry machines for your convenience. Stock Island Marina Village features free Wi-fi, a downtown shuttle service, an on-site restaurant, a ship store, and dog parks 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 seasonal visitors, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel. And we're pet friendly!

Stock Island Marina Village: Stock Island Marina Village is a multi-use Marine Community located in historic Safe Harbor and serving live-aboard, recreational, and commercial vessels. Our office is open 7 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 knowledgeable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of Key West life.

Stock Island: 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 Red Grouper 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!

Red Grouper Amenities: The Red Grouper is tastefully outfitted with everything you need during your vacation. Amenities include:

- 1 Queen Bedroom fitted with brand new 100% cotton linens, a closet, and dresser

- Full Bathroom (tub shower, sink, and toilet) with towels

- Kitchen (large refrigerator, stovetop, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster) with a breakfast bar

- Living room with Couch, TV with Direct TV, IPod Dock and Speakers

- Large outdoor deck with table, chairs, umbrella, BBQ grill

- Rooftop sitting area with chairs

- Vehicle parking next to the houseboat

- Bring your boat to Key West! Ask about additional dockage within the marina.

- Pet Friendly ($50.00 per week)

- Thorough cleaning service before and after each stay

*Stock Island Marina Village has a total of FIVE floating boatels available for rent. If this particular houseboat is unavailable, please inquire about the availability of our other four adjacent properties. We look forward to providing you an amazing Key West experience.

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!

Pleasant accommodations

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful setting! Peaceful and quiet, close to all Key West has to offer, without the noise of downtown. We enjoyed the tranquility, had great neighbors, and plenty of "space" to stretch out. The houseboat was well kept, clean, and roomy.

Fantastic, fun and unique rental

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been happier with the accommodations and service! What a unique and fun experience staying on a houseboat! My husband and I decided to book a somewhat last minute trip for our anniversary March 17th. We had never rented a 'boatel' before. We learned of the Stock Island Marina Village boatels in Lonely Planet magazine. After checking them out on the marina website we knew it would be the perfect anniversary getaway for us! The staff at Stock Island Marina Village are so pleasant and helpful. The Red Grouper was very clean and well-stocked with linens/towels. It had a full kitchen tho we only made use of the coffeemaker and microwave while we were there. We enjoyed our coffee out on the lower deck each morning. It was so peaceful just sitting listening to the sounds of the birds and the water. And sunbathing on the upper deck could not have been more relaxing. Absolutely loved the views from the two decks - probably our favorite thing about the rental! It was also nice to be close to downtown Key West but not too close. We had a rental car and drove into downtown Key West each day we were there, about a 10-15 minute drive depending on traffic, but were more than happy to return to our peaceful, comfortable Red Grouper each night. Our only complaint is that our stay wasn't long enough! We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a different, unique and wonderful experience.

On the water

  • 2 of 5

It was clean however the "futon" sofa and chair in living room area were most uncomfortable. Overall below average accommodations. Not up to the level of the other boatels we were in while there. Not well maintained. A couple of the window blinds were broken - could not adjust blinds for light. Internet connection intermittent.

Red Grouper Boatel

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th year on one of the Boatels at Stock Island Marina and as usual it was a wonderful time. Everyone is helpful and nice. If you want to get to the store or downtown Key West the marina has a free shuttle. We usually end up eating at HogFish bar & grill. Harley & Ross are the best. My husband loves fishing off the back of the Boatel. Thank you Everyone at Stock Island Marina.
