Cozy & unique 2 bedroom houseboat sleeps 6 comfortably. Home is great for romantic getaway or family friendly vacation. Has room for boat (extra $). Less than 3 miles away from major activities, beach, bars, & restaurants. Boat ramp 1/2 mile away.

The space

Maggie’s Houseboat features 1 bedroom, a converted loft upstairs and 1 bath. The master bedroom is downstairs along with a single bathroom. Upstairs you will find a relaxing small loft (no door). This open space features a comfortable daybed that sleeps 2-3 when opened. It has a window leading to the sun/moon deck; therefore, must be considered for small children. You will find plenty of books to read, VHS and DVD’s to watch, and a wide selection of CD’s to listen to if all you want to do is relax. And for some further relaxation, enjoy your own nook. You can also take a nap outside in the sundeck, since we have beautiful weather all year round.
Back downstairs, enjoy watching a 40” Flat panel TV on a comfortable sofa, which opens up to a Queen size bed. For your enjoyment, you have the option of watching cable, VHS, DVDs or playing games on our WII Console. For those of you who enjoy cooking, you have a full equipped kitchen or simply use the outside BBQ grill. You can either eat outside in your private gazebo or stay inside and enjoy our dining area. You will find that our Houseboat has everything you could possibly need inside and outside the house. All you need to do is bring your toothbrush and your clothes. We will handle the rest.

Other things to note

The House Rules and Liability Form will need to be signed in order to book a reservation.

Guests bringing boats will incur an extra charge per night. ($50-$100 per night)

Guests staying 7 nights or more will incur a higher housekeeping fee depending on the length of stay.

The second floor which has the loft/second bedroom is a little tight to get through. Must be careful going upstairs.

Although this house has 3 comfortable beds that can sleep 2 people in each, you must keep in mind that there is only 1 bathroom so that can be a challenge when you have 6 people.

Also, most sitting areas in the house such as living room and dining room only accommodate 4 at a time. This must be kept into consideration!!!!

Vivian and Maggie's place worked great for our family of 5 for a 5 day vacation in the keys. It is conveniently located to the main attractions we were looking for: the Everglades and state parks. The house is small - you can tell it truly was a houseboat - but we never felt cramped because there are two levels and a screened in porch. The kitchen is very well equipped and we made most of our meals at home. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Maggie was extremely helpful every step of the way, responding extremely quickly to every question we had. Overall it was a unique place to stay and I would recommend it to families with school age children.

People come to Key Largo for the water sports. We came to chill out and get out from under our work and electronics. The boathouse was the perfect place to do that. We loved being able to eat out at nearby restaurants or walk to the grocery store to pick up fresh food to cook. The kitchen was very well equipped and clean, something you don't always find when you are away from home. The days felt long and lazy but when we felt we had been sitting on the screened porch for too long, we could go to the nearby gym for a workout or head to a park for a walk under the cool and unique hammock. After that we could feel more righteous as we settled back in for a video binge, more reading or conversation. Maggie was a great host, quickly responsive to questions and so very friendly. We highly recommend her place to anyone looking something a little different and fun.

We enjoyed our stay on the houseboat. Vivian and Maggie were great hosts. They checked in several days before our arrival to see if we had any questions or needed anything. They were quick to answer questions. The property is fun and unique. The bed is comfortable. It was easy to come and go and easily accessible to everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed relaxing on the neighborhood association oceanfront property. They had some very good recommendations for local restaurants. They were excellent hosts, and we would definitely stay here again.
