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 features free wi-fi, a downtown shuttle service, an on-site restaurant, a ship store, and dog parks that are also available for your use. Enjoy all the comforts of home with the atmosphere of maritime living!

Stock Island is located just over the bridge from Key West, about a 15 minute ride to Duval Street. It's close enough to enjoy all the action of downtown but relax in a more laid back atmosphere. 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.

Blue Marlin Amenities: The Blue Marlin is tastefully outfitted with everything you need during your vacation. Amenities include:

- 1 Queen Bedroom with a closet and dresser

- Full Bathroom (shower, sink, and toilet) with bath towels

- Kitchen (refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster) with a bistro dinette

- Living room with sofa, TV with Direct TV, IPod Dock and Speakers

- Covered outdoor deck with table, chairs, BBQ grill & uncovered deck with lounge chairs

- Vehicle parking next to the houseboat

- Bring your boat to Key West! Ask about additional dockage within the marina.

- Pet friendly.

- Thorough cleaning service before and after each stay.

*Stock Island Marina Village has a total of FIVE floating boatels available for rent. If this particular houseboat is unavailable, please inquire about the availability of our other four adjacent properties. We look forward to providing you an amazing Key West experience.

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!

An excellent experience

  • 4 of 5

Overall an excellent experience good choice for vacation. Everything was very clean and organized. The directions were adequate and the information was left for attractions. There was some confusion concerning the check-in process. We came in on a holiday they were close, but the keys were left and we had no problem getting on the property. The houseboat had everything you would need with the exception of toiletries. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something a little different.

A trip to remember!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Florida and we came upon this marina renting these boatels not too far away from where my brother was staying in his RV. The idea really appealed to us and we couldn't have been more pleased. (Except maybe for the really, really poor wifi, that is a problem.) The boatel was really clean and comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the comfort of having our own little apartment to relax in and also to enjoy the fishing off the lower deck and the sunshine on the upper deck. The marina office staff were all very friendly and our whole week was amazing. We would definitely want to return.

BLUE MARLIN

Verified Stay

A great little getaway spot. The Boatel was clean and well equipped. Comfortable for two people to sit back and relax with nice water views. Marina personnel were very accommodating. Shuttle running from Marina to Key West very convenient. Just park the car and go. I would recommend and would stay again.

The property was amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The Blue Marlin property was amazing, comforting and quaint. My boyfriend and I came during one of the busiest weekends in the Keys- boating weekend but staff was very friendly and the house was extremely clean. We even came home looking for a houseboat to buy! We will certainly be back next year as I am looking forward to staying at one of the other houseboats, if available. I highly recommend this property and the others they have on site.
