The space
Please be advised that not all dates are available to book here on AirBnB as this service is only used to fill our unbooked dates that are within the next six months. If you're looking to book beyond six months and you'd like to use the AirBnB platform then you'll need to wait until that time, no exceptions. Thanks for your understanding!

Building upon the success of the Original Tiki Suite, the 2021 Grand Tiki luxury model was designed and built with many improvements in quality including an artistic roof design, tempered peak windows, Ipe hardwood deck and flooring, an automatic-start generator charging system, 50" LED TV and Blu-ray player hidden in the footboard of the custom oak bed, handmade king-size mattress, integrated blinds in the French doors, oak and reed glass bathroom pocket door, expanded 30 gallon per day fresh water tank, electric mini refrigerator, plus underwater and exterior soffit lighting! 

As with the Original, the Grand also includes 2 inflatable paddleboards, 2 sets of snorkel gear, integrated swim ladder, a double hammock, voice-activated lighting throughout via Amazon's Alexa, mobile hotspot Wi-Fi (for browsing, not streaming video), air conditioning and heat, in-room shower, Keurig coffee maker and supplies, macerating toilet, 2.5 gallon electric hot water tank and of course all USCG required safety equipment. 

Come out and watch some of the world's most amazing sunsets from a secluded, unique accommodation and make a memory that will last a lifetime!


Check-in is between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

Check-out is by 11:00 am.

Water Shuttle

This tiki is anchored out in the harbor away from land and can only be accessed by boat. We recommend the local marine services company that also provides water shuttle service in the area, Ship 2 Shore, as they are the most affordable and reliable option for transport and also offer free parking at their shuttle dock location. In our arrival instruction message to you we will provide a link to their site for complete information and to schedule a ride but to fill you in a little now, here is an overview of their services.

You have the option of either general seating shuttles for $27.50/person (2 person minimum charge for the boat to go out) or private shuttles for $165 for up to 6 passengers. Keep in mind that the general seating shuttle has baggage allowances, similar to an airline with one carry-on and one personal item, so pack light to avoid additional baggage fees. We will also send you information about a baggage storage service if you don't want to bring all your luggage with you to the tiki.

General seating shuttle times (going TO the tiki)
8:45 am, 10:40 am, 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm, 7:00 pm

General seating shuttle times (going TO land)
9:00 am, 11:00 am, 3:20 pm, 5:20 pm, 7:20 pm

Private shuttle times (time begins and ends at the dock)
6:30 am, 7:15am, 8:00 am, 12:45 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:15 pm, 4:15 pm, 6:15 pm, 8:30 pm

General seating shuttle rides must be scheduled by 3:00 PM the day they are needed and at least 2 hours in advance. Private shuttle rides must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Ride times are subject to availability and general seating shuttles may be delayed anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes depending on passenger volume, weather conditions or other factors. If you fail to make a shuttle reservation before their 3:00 pm cut-off or miss your scheduled ride time and cannot schedule another one, you will not be able to access the tiki. Make sure you arrive to the dock early as the shuttle departs on-time and will leave you behind if you're late, and they will not refund your ticket! If you're driving from Miami make sure to add a 2 hour cushion to your estimated time of arrival to account for traffic. The water shuttle service is an independent business and is not affiliated with AirBnB.

Things to consider:

- This is off-grid living so you must understand that while efforts have been made to preserve the modern conveniences we've become accustomed to on land, some of them must be sacrificed while still other inconveniences must be accepted. 

- Air conditioning is installed but is recommended to only be used during sleeping hours or if you intend to stay inside as it requires the generator to be running in order to be used, which is loud outside. Please keep in mind that it can take an hour or more of run time to bring the temperature down inside the boat once the air conditioner has been started, depending on how hot it is outside.

- The wifi provided is through a cellular jetpack service and while it does have an unlimited data service, it is only high speed up to 22 gigabytes per month and then the speeds are severely reduced for the remainder of the month. For this reason, to make sure all guests have access to decent internet speeds, it is only intended for basic internet access, NOT streaming video or using massive amounts of data.

- Guests are not permitted to bring their own private vessels (such as jet skis and powerboats) to this boat. Kayaks and paddle boards are permitted.

- There is very limited fresh water on board, only about 30 gallons, so it must be conserved.

- Electricity for lights, water and small device charging is supplied by battery and power inverter. When the battery charge gets too low the generator will automatically turn on to recharge them and will automatically turn off once the charge process is complete. The generator must also be turned on to use the air conditioner, coffee maker and hot water tank.

- You must bring food and drinks with you, just like camping. Also be sure to bring soap and shampoo if you intend to shower on board. Towels and toilet paper are supplied.

- Be sure to read the house rules before booking.

- The tiki is only Coast Guard approved for up to 2 passengers on board.

- You will be required to complete a boat rental agreement to be able to check in. This agreement is fully digital and will be sent to the email address associated with your AirBnB account. The full terms of this agreement are available prior to booking by requesting through the AirBnB messaging system.

- If the person booking the boat was born after 1987, Florida law requires them to possess a Boating Safety Card, -- or -- to be accompanied by someone who is either born before 1988 or who already has a card. If you need one we can help you get it by providing you with a website link to the 25 question online test and help you with any or all of the questions. If your situation requires you to have one of these cards then you must have it with you when you check in as the law also requires us to verify it. It is your responsibility to make sure you have this card, if required, and failure to do so will result in forfeiture of your reservation. Remember, we are happy to help you obtain this card so just ask!
