About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Boatel

Nestled in the heart of Stock Island is the Blue Marlin, the newest addition to our fleet of boatels*. The Blue Marlin is one of five 1 BR /1 BA floating houses located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect way to experience Key West by water. The houseboat is brand new and has been outfitted with new furnishings and artwork. You will find the boatel stocked with kitchenware, dishes, luxury towels and linens. We also have coin operated laundry machines for your convenience.

Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboard residents and seasonal guests, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel.

Stock Island Marina Village is a multi-use Marine Community located in historic Safe Harbor and serving live-aboard, recreational, and commercial vessels. We offer free wifi internet, use of our new gym, dog park and laundry facilities. Our office is open 7 days a week, and we have security on site after office hours so you can feel safe during your stay. Our residents are very friendly, courteous, and knowledgable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of Key West life.

About Jordan

Stock Island Marina Village is a newly developed marina, just beyond the noise and crowds of the world famous Duval Street in Key West, Florida. A pioneer on the developing forefront of the rustic Stock Island, Stock Island Marina Village is redefining the boater experience with an unparalleled level of hospitality and service. As Destination Experts and Experience Providers with guests as the highest priority, Stock Island Marina Village is the best marina in South Florida.

Jordan purchased this house boat in 2014

Why Jordan chose Key West

In 2007, the New York Times said, “The real Key West, It’s not even located on Key West proper anymore, but just over the Cow Key Channel Bridge, on the even tinier Stock Island.” Home to a diverse group of residents and business (and boats), Stock Island is a little quieter than its neighbor Key West, but still close enough to experience all Key West has to offer. Named after the livestock that used to call it home, Stock Island has a unique commercial history. The docks that currently house the Green Turtle were once lined with hundreds of fishing and shrimping vessels. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, proximity to Key West, and old island culture, Stock Island’s a great place to relax and experience the Florida Keys!

What makes this house boat unique

"Boatel" guests are truly guests of the Marina Village, and welcome to use any and all of the long list of first class amenities on site. This includes the complimentary shuttle to downtown Key West, two dog parks, state of the art laundry facilities, 24-hour fitness center, and much more!

Absolutely amazing

Great home away from home. Nicely decorated with tons of room and very very clean. Would recommend Blue Marlin as super clean and quiet place to stay and only 10 minutes from downtown Key West. And best of all pet friendly!!

Such a great little boatel!!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was decorated so cute! The marina was quiet and year round residents were so friendly and helpful. It was so peaceful being rocked to sleep every night and the air conditioning was cool and the lull of the air conditioner knocked out any outside noise (including thunderstorms). The pool was amazing and so refreshing after walking around downtown Key West. The shuttle service that brought you into downtown was so convenient...both of the drivers were so helpful with great places to eat and things to see. Wendy the gal at the Stock Island Marina office was also very helpful with activities and making recommendations. Overall...so pleased!!!

Happy Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Friends recommended this to us - when I went on line the only weekend left, was our anniversary weekend - it was so meant to be. We love the water/boating etc. We had a wonderful time. The boat was neat & clean and had the many comforts of home. Beautiful in the mornings on the top deck to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Staff was helpful and nice. Quiet and peaceful. Nearby shuttle service to enjoy Key West which is only a few minute drive. Great anniversary gift to our selves, we will be back again. Already referred friends and family.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience staying on a well built and decorated house boat. Getting away from the hustle and party atmosphere of key west was a real plus. The house was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Our favorite part was drinking wine on the top deck at night.

house boat fine..location not good..views not good

  • 3 of 5

First you have to park a half mile away to get your keys and gate opener. The outside grill was dirty, my husband cleaned it prior to using, the coffee maker very dirty we covered the couch with a spare sheet we found, very dirty . For the money spent we were hoping for more. Views were a building on your right, large fuel containers on your left and a strip on land not far across from the house boat. Other than the dirty items above the house boat was nice. We left a day early. Key West good food and of course lots of fun. I wanted to explore the ideal of staying on a house boat for future get a-ways...but my husband and I both agree stay in a hotels or stay home.

Very clean and great location

  • 4 of 5

Need better communication regarding checking location. It's very hard to know you can only access the marina store by dock. That information would be quite helpful!
