New houseboat experience for us. We weren’t sure what to expect for our houseboat stay as this was new to us. First, the staff is fantastic, friendly, so helpful with anything needed. Staff gets 5 stars! Second, the houseboat location was fine but the unit itself could use some updating and TLC. The bedding was comfortable to sleep and we enjoyed sitting on the topside deck for sunset. The living room couch needs replacing as it was not very comfortable and could use a small coffee table or an ottoman to put your feet up. The bar and food service is not operating at the moment and would have been nice to grab a cocktail at the marina. The showering was suggest for hot showers and to use hair dryers to be done in the outdoor shower area which is at the end of the dock. Something we aren’t used to but hey, it was like marina camping and a new experience. Maybe not our cup of tea but we still had fun and will remember fondly! Thirdly, they were dog friendly and found almost everywhere we went in the keys was dog friendly. That was something we appreciated! Lastly, Mike the manager was a super nice guy and alway around asking how we were doing and helpful to recommend places. We also saw a shark, and crocodiles from the docks. If you want a unique experience that is not fancy, but very clean, give the Aqua Lodge Houseboats a try! It’s the Keys, why not!
