Private Offshore Island with Houseboat and Motor Boat. Enjoy your own tropical island in the Florida Keys
Experience the tranquil Gulf waters of the Florida Keys from the unique perspective of your own floating home - docked at your own private tropical island.
Your houseboat will be permanently docked at our private Island (aka Charlie's Island). You receive free exclusive use of our private tropical island for camping, picnicking, kayaking, snorkeling adventures and so much more. We provide a boat for transportation to and from your island. This worry free site is truly a get away from it all. This exposed fossilized ancient reef is beautifully landscaped with trails wandering throughout. You can enjoy wandering the paths through the mangrove trees, fishing from the docks, or snorkeling in the crystal clear waters around the island. We provide a grill and picnic tables for your tropical picnic as well as a hammock for the perfect perch to enjoy the tropical breezes off the Gulf waters. This is ideal for people who are interested in a rustic, camp like adventure! The island is located in a beautiful, quiet, private cove. There are no homes along the shoreline of the cove. The island is surrounded my mangroves from the south-western edge of Curry Hammock State Park.
Your Florida Keys houseboat and island vacation adventure includes a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom Houseboat which sleeps 6-8 guests. Our houseboats come fully equipped, offering you a safe and comfortable home base for your Florida Keys activities - the perfect place to kick off your shoes, lay back and relax.
We will take time to familiarize you with your houseboat. As always, we are available to answer any questions you may have!
