The houseboat is awesome and Jan is a great host! She was accessible before and during our stay to answer any questions and was always very helpful. The boat is comfortable and in a perfect location to explore Destin and the Harborwalk. I loved it and will definitely be back.
This was unlike anything I've ever done before. It was absolutely incredible! Jan was very easy to get in touch with and answered me back immediately. The boat was so unique and cozy at the same time. There is so much to do right around the marina we never had to go back to our car once we got there. There are a couple of restaurants and bars that provide live music on the weekends that are less than 100 yards away and it provided the perfect setting to sit on top of the boat with a bottle of wine. I highly recommend this one of a kind experience to anyone and everyone. Thank you Jan!!!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great experience in a great location! Working fishermen and very friendly and interesting. The Houseboat oyster bar next door has the best food and nice live music evenings that we could hear from the boat. Comfortable, everything you need and we will do it again.
Unbelievable location at the marina, comfortable boat with everything you need. The locals very friendly and helpful, went red snapper fishing with the boat next door.
The music one hears from the deck comes from the Boathouse oyster bar. Very good, fresh seafood and and lovable staff, can only recommend it.
Like everyone one else mentioned, the toilet may not be for all but it's a boat.
Thanks a bunch and I know I'll be back.
A friend and I booked the houseboat for a girl's weekend. The location is amazing - right on the Destin Harbor. There is a small kitchen, but we only used the fridge. We had take out dinners (and wine) on the deck at sunset. The sunsets were amazing. We saw dolphins every day, and loved our heron watch-bird. :) We also loved getting ready and walking out the dock to all the great Destin Harbor nightlife.
This is not a luxury yacht - you have to fill your water supply for the shower, and there isn't a lot of room. But as long as you aren't expecting luxury, this boat is perfect. We had a great time,and would love to come back!
Wife and I loved relaxing on the houseboat!!!
The boat was really very lovely.
On the land side, it is right on the boardwalk. Walk to any rentals, restaurants, pubs, Starbucks, zip line... anything.
On the water side, it is right on the channel. I could sit on the top deck and watch the boats and people go by all day and listen to the live music from the pub all night. In fact, I did.
This is the only houseboat in the marina. The rest are rentals and legitimate fishermen. Watched a boat come in after a week out and chatted while they cleaned the most fantastic tuna.
The only word of warning is that the toilet and shower are basically in the bedroom... fine for us but could be awkward depending on how close you are with your cabin mate. The Starbucks also has lovely bathrooms (don't use the ones at the fisherman's co-op).
Jan's house boat was a one of a kind experience! The boat was cozy and in the most perfect location. All of the restaurants were in walking distance. We truly enjoyed the convenience of not having to go out to Destin's busy traffic . We were able to have most relaxing mini vacation by entertaining ourselves right there in the area. Even though we were in the middle of Destin, we were able to unwind and forget about everyday stress. We brought our kayaks and fishing gear (you can rent them if you don't have your own). Because the house boat was in a safe harbor, our 10 year old daughter was even able to enjoy her first kayaking trip to the beach (it took us literally 5 min. to get to the beach.) There are several charter fishing boats available on the same pier for a day of fishing.
Also , we can not leave unmentioned the convenience of having a glass of wine on the top deck of the boat and listening to the live music from a nearby bar/restaurant while watching the most beautiful sunset ...
Jan was a wonderful host . She made us feel very welcomed. Jan was full of energy and sweet. We consider her a friend and can't wait to book another vacation on her amazing house boat!
P.S. If you feel up to it, try the 3 pound shrimp poboy challenge at the "Fisherman's Wharf" only a minute away from the houseboat. But don't get your hopes up, I had to get two to-go boxes :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
