The Space

Imagine waking up to the sounds of birds flying overhead. You step out onto the deck of this beautiful houseboat for a stunning view of Doctor's Lake. You sip your coffee while enjoying the patio furniture, or go back in to have breakfast in the cozy dining area. After a day out enjoying the sights, you are greeted with a cool cabin (via the two Air Conditioning units) and enjoy your dinner, cooked in the full kitchen, out on the deck as you watch the manatees play while the sun melts into the horizon. Then go curl up in the spacious interior of this house boat for your favorite TV show, or even a movie in the Blue Ray DVD player. Don't forget the popcorn! Which is easily cooked in the kitchen microwave. After taking a hot shower in one of the two bathrooms, you end your day being gently lulled to sleep by the sounds of the night around the lake.
Sound like a dream? It could be your reality! Come stay on this beautiful houseboat, which sleeps eight, and surround yourself with some of the most extraordinary views and amazing wildlife around.

Please note that the boat will remain in marina slip for duration of stay.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I met up with a childhood friend on the Gibson House Boat and we had a wonderful time. The boat was absolutely beautiful and the view was great. The boat was actually more spacious than I expected and had all the amenities that we needed. The top of the boat was a great place to relax and watch the sunset. Daniel was a great host. He was very responsive and always answered my questions quickly. I'm convinced that there is no cooler place to stay in Jacksonville for this price. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Jacksonville.

  • Daniel was very responsive to our requests for info and the boat is as nice as the pictures listed. All utilities and A/C were in working order. The boat was 15 minutes from Eagles Landings Golf and Country Club and 40 minutes to the TPC Sawgrass. Great golf weekend with the fellas.

  • We had a very nice stay on the houseboat. It's like a little condo - with an amazing view out over Doctors Lake. Daniel was very easy to work with. I really appreciated his flexibility in letting us check in early when our plans changed.

  • This houseboat was a great way to enjoy being on the water and relaxing and we really enjoyed the gentle movement of the boat. There was plenty of room inside for the two of us. The bedding was comfortable and we slept as well as anywhere. We enjoyed having internet and clear television reception. Daniel was a great host and was easy to contact when we needed to ask a question.

  • We had a great stay on Daniel's houseboat. The boat was in perfect order with lovely new towels & bedding. Even though we had a couple of days of rain we were very happy on the boat since it is so spacious. I would highly recommend this gibson house boat. Other people in the marina were very friendly and the area in and around Jacksonville has lots to offer. We had everything we needed and would do this again. Thanks Daniel!

  • The houseboat was great! Location was convenient, view beautiful, and the boat was not only spotless, but equipped with all kinds of amenities. The marina was clean and quiet. Daniel was a delight to work with. Communicated well and promptly, and was graciously accommodating when a last-minute emergency pushed back my arrival by several hours. I highly recommend the houseboat for anyone looking for a unique getaway!

  • Our much needed vacation get a way on this houseboat was an amazing experience we will never forget. It was so serene to wake up early to see the newly risen sun burning off the fog over the lake. It was very conveniently located to so many interesting places to visit yet we felt we were by ourselves and had our privacy. We are excited to book our next trip to Florida to stay on this houseboat again soon. Thanks to our host, Daniel who was very accommodating and friendly. The houseboat was beautiful and roomy and had everything we possibly needed and when we wanted one specific item, Daniel got it to us immediately. You can't possibly go wrong in any way by booking this houseboat for your next vacation.

  • A problem with a broken water pump was immediately attended to by the owner. Was promised that future guests will find the boat house in cleaner conditions than we did. A musty smell was quickly taken care of with a spray of air freshener. All in all a very nice place on the water and we will stay there again.
    Thank you Daniel
