Vacation Rental of the Week: The Red Grouper – Florida

August 19, 2015 • By

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 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?
