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.

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!

Pet Friendly Houseboat at the Beautiful Stock Island Marina Village in Key West
average rating of 4.5 based on 24 reviews

Cute and convenient

  • 4 of 5

I have never stayed on a houseboat or in a marina. This one was lovely and comfortable. Know that when there are sewage tanks on the boat, some sewer gas smell is unavoidable. We never thought of that. The kitchen was well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed both porches. We never used the living room. One thing the pictures do not show are the large tanks at the end of the marina that look like large fuel storage tanks. We got used to them and they did not bother us but they were a disappointment at first. We loved how convenient the marina is to Key West. We brought our kayaks and bicycles and rode across the bridge many times but did not have a good place to put the kayaks in. There was a permanent resident who lived next door who was very nice. I kept wanting to water his plants-it was actually distracting. They looked pitiful. You see a little of everything here. It is definitely like another country here. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Comfortable and unique

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, relaxing time on the Yellow Tail. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, residents are kind and welcoming. If Conch West is still docked say hi to Domino the cat! Shuttle is convenient and quick. Easy to get to Duval Street area without the crowds or noise. Extremely relaxing and peaceful. Conch rental will deliver mopeds to your houseboat! Can't wait to return.

Excellent retreat!

Highly recommend the Boatels at Stock island- we were in the Yellow Tail for the week and could not complain. The property was well maintained and a gorgeous retreat from the bustle of downtown. Definitely a return visit in our future!

Truly Enjoyed the Yellowtail

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week on the Yellowtail and had a really nice week. We enjoyed the location of the houseboat. The marina was nice, well kept, and the employees were friendly. What I really found pleasant about our stay was how quiet it was. Sure, occasionally there were planes flying overhead, but very few and didn't disrupt the stay at all. The houseboat itself was nice. Perfect for 2 people. This is not a luxury accommodation, but more like a nice hotel room comparable to a Hilton Garden Inn or Courtyard. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. If you need housekeeping services everyday, this is not the palce for you. There is no cleaning service or linen service, it's like being home in that respect. But if you need things, the staff is helpful. You are expected to leave the boat the way you found it when you leave. Clean up everything but the bathroom. The grill is cool. There is a fishmarket 2 minutes from the marina and we grilled very fresh fish on a couple of evenings and enjoyed the stars and the water. you do not have a view of the ocean, it's only a view of the marina. You can see this on a satellite view on Google maps. You know what you are getting. It was wonderful to buy stuff for breakfast and eat out on the deck every morning in the sunshine. And having the upper deck to relax in the lounge chairs was really nice. The weather this time of year is perfect (first week of January). The boat does have a very gentle rocking pretty much all the time. We found it soothing. A couple people commented on the smell. It was fine for us. If you've been on a boat, it has a 'boat" smell. It is almost a wood smell. It didn't at all bother us, I never even noticed and certainly no smell in the bathroom. It's a 10 minute drive into downtown Key West. I would certainly recommend a car, it makes it easier to get around. This is a place for people who want to relax. I would certainly have no problems renting it again.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Houseboat was as advertised. It was clean, modern and comfortable. The shuttle to and from Duval was on time to the minute. Could have been a couple more drop off and pick up times, but that is minor. Marina staff were good and the marina was nice. Wasn't that windy so the boat didn't really rock. Definitely will stay there again. It was nice to be away from Duval Street but close enough to go when you wanted to
