Photos and Description of this Stock Island holiday house boat

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.

- Not-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!

Peaceful, relaxing, and super quiet.

  • 4 of 5

Just two of us, and the houseboat was perfect for us. It is not on the island of Key West, a little "off the beaten path," which is just what we were looking for. Loved having 2 different places to sit out and watch the gentle ripples in the water or boats going in and out of the marina. It is a boat, so there was a nice gentle rock. The queen bed was very comfy, so we slept great. There was plenty of hot water, and the air conditioners kept the rest as cool as we liked.

We would love to come back!

We had a great experience with Stock Island Marina. We booked the Blue Marlin and actually wound up staying in the Yellowtail, but were thrilled with our lodgings. The houseboat was perfect for the two of us and everything about our stay was just so perfect. The view was gorgeous, the rooms were all beautiful, the shower and bathroom were spacious, and we couldn't have asked for a better place. There was a complementary shuttle to Key West (which we didn't make use of being that we had a rental, but it was nice to know we could if we wanted to). Jordan helped us facilitate a late check-in and because we paid in advance we didn't spend much time in the office with paperwork at all. It was a great stay and our only complaint was that we didn't spend our whole vacation at the Yellowtail! I highly recommend these boatels. You won't be disappointed!

This house boat is ship shape!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to the Keys and our first time staying in a boatel . We were pleasantly surprised by both.

Check-in at the marina store was a breeze. Our house boat was perfect! The decks were our favorite especially the top deck. We slept like baby's with the ever so slight back and forth rock from the water .

There was a nice outdoor restaurant /bar with live music at night . They had a free shuttle service that took us to Duval st area and we taxied back late that night.

We would stay here again for sure!

Atlanta, GA

Stock Island Marina Village is a great place to vacation

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I are reluctantly adjusting to life back on land in Atlanta! After having spent a glorious week aboard the Blue Marlin. The staff at the marina were very helpful and courteous to us the few times we interacted with them. We have done these types of rentals before and have a suggestion or two. It would be helpful for "out of towners" such as ourselves. Supply a binder in each unit with local information, including a map, about restaurants, shopping and other activities on Stock Island/Key West. We were made aware of both the Hogfish and Roostica which was great but menus and directions would help. Have scratch paper and pens readily at hand. Your WIFI needs to be beefed up and made more consistent.

All minor things that did NOT keep us from having a wonderful week and we have already recommended Stock Island Marina Village to friends of ours who enjoy "unique homes away from home" like the Blue Marlin.

Keep up the good work!

Mark & Christine Secatore
