About this listing
A family vacation, or romantic escape, whatever you're looking for we've got it!
We have 2 of these boats for rent so if this listing is booked check our other listing for availiblity.
The kitchen, or "galley", has a range, full size refrigerator, microwave ovens, and all the accessories you will need.
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.

This houseboat was amazing. True relaxation, peace and beauty. This is our 2nd time using Airbnb and this houseboat is the way to go. Daniel was great at letting us know how to get there and was gracious with our checkout time. All the other reviews we read before coming helped us make our choice of staying here and they all rang truthful. Great choice our 14 year old begged us to get. We will definitely be back!
Having the house boat was the highlight of our vacation in Jacksonville and quickly became the favorite place for all of our family. Daniel is a great host! He's very friendly and met us at check in. My wife and I are already planning our next trip! Thanks Daniel
the experience was unique staying at a marina..rusty was fantastic getting us situated and telling us some great places to visit..
As always, Daniel and team were very hospitable and helpful. I look forward to staying there again.
I want to start by saying that my boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the house boat! It was peaceful, clean, and everything worked perfectly onboard. Daniel was out but Rusty was available with prompt and helpful answers to any questions I had.
Just a few areas of opportunity.
1) the inside had a strong odor (septic tank or chemicals) that never went away, even with the air fresheners we purchased.
2) I have a severe almost phobia of spiders and the decks were covered with them. Spider webs were everywhere.
All in all my boyfriend said this was his best bday weekend of his adult life!! We also rented jet skis from the marina which added to our fun!!
The host canceled this reservation 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Staying on the houseboat was a unique experience. The view across the lake was amazing; especially the sunset. It was like camping. It is good for two people and possibly a couple with two small children; otherwise, the space is limited. It needs some attention and updating; it is a fairly rustic and cabin-like.
