The space

The Lil' Bamboo is a 38' ft. house boat for rent in a privately owned and operated marina/vacation property. It is stationary and does not leave the dock. The property is beautiful, has a long jetty for sunsets and star gazing, and fishing . Manatee frequent the marina, as well as an occasional dolphin :) A beach, tiki huts and bathhouse are within 20ft. The boats upper deck is perfect for relaxing with coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the evening to admire our outstanding sunsets. The boat has a full size walk-around bed, a daybed thats larger than a twin and much longer for those who are tall, and deluxe air mattress that can be used in its own below the helm room, great for 'little ones". There is a "head" with a portable toilet and sink, and the bathhouse-restrooms are located directly behind the boat, about 20 steps.

Beautiful sunsets from the deck atop the boat!

The location is wonderful, secluded, yet everything you need is close by. The boat is very clean and well equipped, except there was no hair dryer, so I purchased an inexpensive one (for the fancier nights out!). The bed is very comfortable. There is a bath house steps away from the boat. It's quiet and peaceful. We didn't have great weather, but that didn't stop us from snorkeling every day! We didn't get any sunsets due to the weather but it's the perfect spot to see them. All in all, a great trip! We would come back here again for sure!

This house boat was adorable and perfect for myself and my best friend for a couple days. I was a little bummed there wasn't a "working" toilet in the boat, but the bath and shower house is just outside. Lots of paddle boards and kayaks to use, very safe, quiet and the neighbors are all wonderful. We believe it was a little pricey but it is what it is. I know love house boat life! And the host is great, thanks Abigail!

This boat is perfect for a quiet escape in paradise! It is close to restaurants and necessities but feels like an island to itself. It is well appointed for a comfortable stay with conveniences to cook if tired of eating out. Great extras in use of kayaks and paddle boards at no extra cost to enjoy the 6 foot deep bay that offers snorkeling on rock walls as well as around mangroves. This boat is also within a few miles of great snorkeling trips out of John Penekamp state park. Plenty of tiki huts and beach chairs on shore as well as deck space on the boat to watch the incredible sun sets. No need to go to Key West to toast! If looking for a cozy, quiet, and private experience aboard a house boat, look no further.

Comfortable, quiet, unique place to spend time. The boat and view are fantastic. Plenty of things to keep you busy or just sit and relax.

I would definitely stay here again. Abby is easy to work with. She is available but has great boundaries. She handled one cleanliness issue appropriately and promptly. The boat is cute as a button. And being able to swim onsite is perfect.

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!
