Renting a houseboat was a big stretch for us but the pictures looked beautiful and I love the water so we thought we would take the “plunge”. Just as an FYI, I tend to be a princess from NYC and I never would ever go camping so when I was told I had to go to the pool bathrooms to use my hair dryer I panicked. But all fear was gone once we were introduced to our houseboat. It was so cozy and welcoming. The view of the bay was spectacular day and night. There was an upstairs that you can do some tanning or sit downstairs to read or just watch the boats go by. We couldn’t be more excited when we say dolphins swim by our boat and the last day we saw 4 manatees! That really made the stay perfect. There’s no daily cleaning services but that wasn’t a problem. If you need anything just ask Mike or one of the cleaners. The one thing that I wish was on the boat was a full length mirror. I never knew what I looked like when I went out. Mike the manger was a sweetie! There are great restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Most places were between a 3-15 minute drive away. If you have any doubt about renting, go ahead and book it. It was fabulous! We’ll definitely be back!
