Ready For A Change Of Pace? When you tell your friends you are staying
on the water, you'll really mean it!
This charming 1BR/1BA floating home is in a private marina in the Coco
Plum Beach area. The first level has a full kitchen (with
refrigerator, range and microwave), the living/dining area and a
residential style bath with tub/shower combination. The bedroom, with
a sundeck, is on the second story and is accessed by ladder style
stairs (you must be nimble). Guests will be able to dock their boat to
the floating dock in front of the boat (22' or less and subject to owner approval).
No washer or dryer but laundromat or drop off service is available in
town. Limited parking, only one vehicle. Trailer storage available
nearby, free of charge.
Never been on a houseboat?
They are great and more than likely not something your friends have
ever done. There are some differences though. The boat is a barge
style which means it has a flat bottom. It is very stable and in a
protected location but will naturally shift or slide around slightly.
If the wind picks up it may even rock a little. If you are highly
sensative to movement in cars or boats this might not be the best
choice for you. Most people get used to it right away.
The boat is not the type that leaves the dock. It is permanently
moored and hooked up to shoreside services. You may bring your own
boat or rent a boat in town and tie it to the bow of the houseboat
(the great thing about this is that the boats go up and down together
with the tide!). The floating dock is perfect to launch and access the complimentary Kayaks, 2 single person kayaks! Nearby is a great area of shallow water to explore and lots of opportunity to see native birds in the Magrove areas.
The Marina is located in a working community. Across the canal is a
working boat repair and in/out storage marina (daytime operation only
and most guests have found it of entertainment interest).
The Houseboat is docked behind an office building that is occupied
during the day but is not open to the public so usually very little activity.
So, if you're ready for something different this might be just the answer.
