Luna Sea, A Floating Home!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 7, 2016
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

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 in the unit but one available for use on site. 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

sensitive 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 shore side 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 Mangrove 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.

Lovely Float Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this great float home in Marathon Key, FL. The float home is exactly as pictured and described. We loved the location and there are so many close, fabulous restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The kayaking was great and we loved being able to walk out the front door and hop in the kayaks and be on our way! We walked down the street and rented paddle boards one afternoon to try this as well, at Coco's General Store and really enjoyed that. We also went snorkeling with Captain Pips, which I highly recommend. We were thrilled to see a manatee in the canal and loved to watch the local iguanas. One of my favorite places to relax, was on the top sun deck off of the bedroom, which looks down the canal. The owner is great to work with and makes the rental process super easy. We will definitely be back!
