Have you ever considered a house boat as a vacation rental? You may now after you see this unique holiday home! The Red Grouper is a one bedroom, one bath floating house located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, its the perfect way to experience Key West by water.
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 and still kick back in a more laid back atmosphere. The Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboards and seasonal visitors, giving you a unique ‘Old Key West’ feel.
Stock Island is a little quieter than its more famous neighbor, Key West, but close enough to experience all the party Keys have to offer.
The interior of this vacation rental has been recently remodeled with new furnishings and island-style artwork. The bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with luxury towels and linens.
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!
The interiors are spartan, but clean and fresh and really all you need in a beach house. You certainly won’t mind coming back here after a hard day of sight-seeing – or a night of bar hopping.
The exterior is quite lovely as well. And the best part is that amazing sea view and casual vibe. You’ll feel like a mariner, or a beachcomber for sure.
And who knows, maybe you’ll start that Great American Novel you’ve been thinking about for years. Doesn’t it look like a great place to visit alone, to spend some quality time with your muse?
I discovered this unique vacation rental at Home Away and all photos came from their listing.
So there we have it! What did you think of this week’s Vacation Rental? Are you considering a vacation rental? Have you rented before? And would you vacation in a house boat?
