About This Listing
Our 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 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. Lots of storage and counter space, but no cooking facilities or running water. Economical, air-conditioned and electrically equipped, the boat is clean and comfortable. Restroom and shower facilities are provided elsewhere on the property, as well as access to refrigerator, barbecue grills and picnic tables. Towels, coffee maker, and wifi are provided on the boat. Kayaks, snorkeling gear and bicycles available at no extra cost. A very cool "boat-camping" experience. Maximum occupancy: 2 (boat used for room only - not sailing)
Please feel free to check other units under our profile, and thanks for considering Best of Both Worlds!

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.
Take your shoes off, relax and enjoy our magnificent sunsets
We really loved staying on our floating room in Islamorada. Our host was very attentive and helped us out when we had any questions. We definitely will stay here again when on the Keys. Thank you again for the great hospitality. The accommodation is one of a kind and if you are not afraid of confined spaces you will be fine. Even if you are you can always open the hatch and catch a breathtaking view of the stars while laying in bed.
Best of Both worlds is exactly that. The property is paradise and there's great snorkeling and water activities right there. Kevin and Dana could not be more hospitable. I would definitely consider staying on this property again if i ever returned to the Keys.
We had a great time in Islamorada on Kevin and Danas Boat. They are lovely and provide you with great suggestions for restaurants and activities. It's great to use their sea kayak and you could also use the snorkeling equipment (if you don't have your own). The view from the breakfast table is very nice and you could look at the stars from the bed in the boat. If you are coming in summer it might be important for you that the boat is equipped with AC. If you are looking for a comfortable bathroom you should rather go for one of their appartments but for us it was sufficient to use the small one which is located next to one of their appartments. You have an outdoor shower and sink anyways.
Thanks for these great days

Una estancia estupenda en el barco de Kevin y Danny. Una muy buena experiencia. Muchas gracias por todo! !!
we had a perfect stay with kevin and Dana. The boat was just as described and great fun and we were very well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and everything you need is on site to make the most of the perfect setting. Already planning a return trip.
Excellent stay with great hosts! We stayed for 2 nights on the boat at the end of Kevin & Danas property.
The place was idyllic, with hammocks loungers, easy access to the water including kayaks and snorkeling equipment. We slept really deeply both nights.
The hospitality was great, with towels soap shampoo provided. And great tips for food, beaches and where to (website hidden) in the boat was very welcome.
We went cycling on some of their bikes and when I had a puncture Kevin was kind enough to come in the van and swap the bike!!
Would recommend habanos Cuban coffee & they do great ice cream. Would recommend also Jersey Broadwalk pizza.
It really is like camping when it comes to showering so need to bear that in mind when booking.
Thanks Kevin & Dana
