Moved to the keys in 2004 and love it. I love anything about the water, and really enjoy the island lifestyle, traded in my heels for flip-flops!

This was an awesome experience for our entire family. Abby did a great job hosting and all the amenities we needed were available, including towels, salt and pepper, and all the little things people tend to forget about. It's like a camper on water. If you're looking for a 5-star experience, this is not for you. If you're looking to hang with down to earth , friendly, and relaxed people, then you can't beat this experience. Seeing the manatees every morning in front of the boat and being able to "hang out" with them on a kayak or paddle board was a memory that all of us will never forget. We hope to be back some day to visit again. Thanks Abby (and Murphy the dog) for making our family trip so memorable.
My family of four (wife, two boys 6 and 9) really enjoyed our stay. Abigail was great, easy going, helpful. Neighbors were really welcoming. Laid back community. Central to the Keys, an hour to the Everglades (gators, hikes, airboats). Fun little beach with kayaks that you can borrow. Swam with manatees on our last day just off the beach! Our first time staying on a house boat and we'll do it again!
Abby could not have been more welcoming! She was attentive yet respected our privacy. This place is a tranquil slice of paradise in the Keys. Kayaks & paddle boards available, manatee sighting, fishing, a small beach, showers & laundry facilities available. We love it!
Das Hausboot ist romantisch, liebevoll eingerichtet und hat eine tolle Lage direkt am Wasser. Man kann schöne Sonnenuntergänge vom Deck beobachten, das Boot liegt in einer sehr gepflegten Anlage, in der man sich auch kostenlos Kajaks ausleihen kann. Wenn man Glück hat, kommen manatees vorbei und schwimmen durch die Anlage.
Abi was there to make us feel right at home. The boat was delightful, with a lot of attention to detail to the design and decor.
The location was perfect. Being on the water was an awesome experience. Manatees swam up to the boat almost every day. The beach and common areas in the marina are very well maintained. Access to kayaks and paddle boards were a huge plus. The water is crystal clear, and access to marine life is amazing. The small but clear beach made a swimming pool unnecessary.
Thank you for the wonderful vacation!
Wonderful experience. Abigail met us on our arrival, showed us everything and gave us a complete tour. She left letting us know exactly how to reach her. We just wanted a nice quiet alone vacation and that is what we got. There were no unnecessary visits or phone cals from her. It as well as Abby was perfect for what we wanted.
Our host Abby made us feel very welcome, she was always available and ready to help, the houseboat Little Bamboo was just as described and pictured, it was a very safe place to be, we had a wonderful holiday, very quiet and peaceful, we totally relaxed and have recharged our batteries to start the new year. It was great being able to use the kayaks, paddle boards and pedalo, and seeing the manatees every day was fabulous. All the other guests were so friendly it was a lovely atmosphere. Bit disappointed that the bikes were not working but it didn't spoil our holiday. thanks Abby we would love to come again.
Words cannot describe how amazing this floating heaven is. From the second we arrived we felt at home. Abi was a great host and really made us feel comfortable. The property is beautiful and simple and that is what we wanted. We paddle boarded. We kayaked. We even got a real close view of a manatee right by the boat. This was one of the best traveling experiences I've had. Cannot wait to be back!
Boat was exactly as describe, and had everything we needed. Kayaks and paddle boards were a great bonus. Abby was very helpful, needed a dress and gift and she gave us great tips for where to go. Sunsets on the top deck were amazing, and we couldn't have asked for a better trip!!
The Big Bamboo was a wonderful experience my 11 year old daughter and I will never forget. Abigail was very responsive before & during our stay. Although we did not meet in person, she was quick with a text and had her housekeeper greet us and show us the ropes. Everything was as described and better! I am not sure there could be a nicer location in Key Largo and to be honest, I will not be looking for one as I hope to book a return trip soon! Nice & private & a break from the typical hotel/motel usual & customary expectations. Surprises and amenities at every turn. We utilized the kayaks & stand up paddle boards. The scene was very quiet & private. The best surprise of all was spending over an hour with a huge manatee that swam right up to The Big Bamboo and hung around for a good long time. Just when we thought nothing could be cooler than that, a baby manatee swam by and took a rest one boat away. Think my 11 year old daughter will ever forget that let alone me!?! We are looking forward to another stay on The Big Bamboo for sure. Until then, I will just have to close my eyes and picture the never ending view from the the top deck while being given a warm hug from the Florida warmth & sunshine. Don't miss this opportunity!
I met Abby last year in New Orleans while working on a film. We would run into each other from time to time and I just loved her sweet disposition and her hilariousness. We both ended up in Baton Rouge working on separate projects. She stayed with me at my apartment during the work week and usually went to NOLA on the weekends. Abby is just lovely. No stress. No Drama. As far as I know Abby she is a very eclectic fun loving person. I was going to say spur of the moment but she plans well and is smart about her career an financial planning. She works hard, plays hard and knows how to love life and inspires the people along the way. Oh yeah. She is clean and organized and I am sure her place is a reflection of her uniqueness.
