We had a wonderful time at the Floating Cottage. It is beautiful, super clean, quiet and comfortable. My kids loved feeding the turtles some interesting fish also stopped by. The deli behind the house has great breakfast.

Ellen, Thank you for your stay and for your very kind words about the cottage. I'm guessing that the catfish and the turtles were sparring for the food. I'm thrilled that the kids enjoyed the critters and their antics. Please visit again! Aloha, Kim

This was our third stay in 18 months, and we plan more. If you love boats, nature, and marina milieu, this is for you. And the cottage is a lux touch. All the niceties in a tiny house. My wife loves the full kitchen. Kim and her local support are nothing if not fully helpful …

Thank you for the kind review of your Floating Cottage experience. I appreciate your stay, your great communication and for sharing your perceptions. While I have never heard it when I indulge myself in the cottage, I understand that the restaurant does at time have live music pool-side and that must be what you experienced. Thrive and enjoy! Aloha, Kim

Kim's Floating Cottage was such a unique experience. It was definitely different than any other place we've stayed in the local area and a great way to change up the trips we take to Sanford / Orlando. The marina is quiet and calm. The home was sturdy and the bed was comfortable…

Sara, what a lovely review of your experience in the cottage. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay afloat, and that you were able to appreciate hearing the raindrops on the roof.
