About this listing
Our very old yet clean and comfortable 24' Columbia sleep aboard offers the experience of sleeping on a boat but provides land amenities such as shower and restroom facilities, barbecue grills, picnic tables, etc.
Have you ever slept floating? You can enjoy this experience on our permanently docked 1964 Columbia 24" sailboat. Recently renovated on the inside, The Cosmos provides the perfect accommodations for one or two young people (perfect "crash pad" for the 20- and 30-somethings!). The boat has only two rooms: a sleeping berth (with a double-sized bed), and a sitting area (it's small, but it's cozy!). Some storage and counter space, but no cooking facilities or running water on-board. Economical, air-conditioned and electrically equipped, the boat is clean and comfortable. Within a few steps, you have access to a fresh-water station and your own gas grill. Restroom, shower facilities and refrigerator access are within a 30-second walk. Towels, coffee maker, toaster and wifi available on the boat. Complimentary kayaks, snorkeling gear and bicycles provided. It's basically camping, but on an air-conditioned boat with a real bed. Maximum occupancy: 2
Complimentary kayaks, snorkeling gear and bicycles. Common area refrigerator, hammocks, picnic tables, restroom, shower, laundry facilities.
Interaction with Guests
As little or as much as they would like!
We are a little slice of old-style Florida Keys tucked in between cookie-cutter, impersonal hotel rooms. The property abounds in coconut and papaya palms, as well as an abundance of wildlife.
Free parking provided - public transportation very limited.
Take your shoes off, relax and enjoy our magnificent sunsets
What an amazing place!! The property is beautiful, awesome views of the sea with plenty of hammocks and chairs to enjoy the view. The sailboat was really nice inside and has a/c to keep it cool. Having the kayaks and the snorkel equipment was great! Loved waking up and going snorkelling right by the property. Kevin is the best host. Really friendly and helpful. Would love to stay again!
What an amazing weekend here! Kevin and Dana were great hosts, full of really useful tips and information about the island. Staying on a sailboat made for a much more adventurous time than we would have had at a hotel (plus we couldn't have jumped straight into the water from our bedroom!) and the amenities like the kayaks and snorkels were put to good use. The grounds and sunsets were beautiful. No complaints at all, and we're hoping to come back again soon!
We enjoyed our stay with Kevin and Dana in Islamorada. The location is great for exploring the keys. We stayed on the boat and were quite comfortable. Kevin is a great host and was very welcoming, showing us all around his place and gave us great dining and beach finding advice as well as tell us all about the nature: trees, fish, animals of the islands. If we find ourselves in the Keys again, we would definitely look into seeing if the boat might be available.
Beautiful experience, sleep-ins on the sailboat. Really a nice place to stay and lovely host!
Kevin and Dana are wonderful! The property was beautiful! We stayed in the sailboat and it was clean and comfortable. We would love to come back!
We had such a lovely time here! Kevin was the perfect host, snorkelling from the property was such fun and the location was perfect as easy to find. Would definitely recommend and return if we are in the area again.
Perfect place to stay in Islamorda. Close to restaurants and many activities. The sailboat bed was very comfortable and the AC was ice cold. Kevin was a great host and would recommend all kinds activities and restaurants during my stay.
