The space
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
----------------------------

*Effective October 1, 2021*

This tiki is anchored out in the harbor away from land and can only be accessed by boat. As such, we have purchased two ride times from the local water shuttle service for our customers to use for free every day; one at 3:00 pm to the tiki (or 3:20 pm back to land) and one at 10:40 am to the tiki (or 11:00 am back to land). We recommend using the 3:00 pm ride time for check-in but you may also purchase a later ride time from the shuttle service, as long as you are within the check-in times.

----------------------------
Water Shuttle
----------------------------

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 $25/person (2 person minimum charge for the boat to go out) or private shuttles for $150/hour with 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 (outbound FROM the dock)
9:00 am, 10:40 am, 3:00 pm, 5:30 pm, 8:30 pm

General seating shuttle times (inbound TO the dock)
9:20 am, 11:00 am, 3:20 pm, 5:50 pm, 8:50 pm

Private shuttle times (time begins and ends at the dock; you have to purchase the full hour even if you don't intend to use it)
7:00 am, 8:00 am, 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm, 4:00 pm, 9:00 pm

All shuttle rides, private or general seating, must be scheduled by 3:00 PM the day they are needed and at least 2 hours in advance. Ride times are subject to availability. If you fail to make a reservation by 3:00 pm 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! 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.

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

- 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, help you with any or all of the questions and reimburse you for the $10 test fee. 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!
