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!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have family in Stock Island & this was in great proximity to their place. It's just perfect for two people. If you need to access the college, it is also very close. We didn't feel the need to go into Key West every night & we're happy to eat locally. We are looking forward to next year!

Nice alternative to a hotel

  • 4 of 5

This "boatel" is new and nice. The photos are representative of what you get. The bed was comfortable and there was just the right amount of room to satisfy what I prefer in a vacation rental. We had friendly neighbors and really enjoyed this place. There are lots of fish in the water to view from the deck and that was pretty cool.

Two things to mention: The gravel lot where you park to check in is about 1/4 mile walk from the office on the dock. If you have mobility issues, you'll need someone else in your party to check in for you or perhaps make arrangements so management can let you drive in closer to the office for check in. (likewise if you're checking in during a storm). My activity app showed the round trip to be 0.6miles. For the money you're spending, it seems the check-in should be less of a hassle.

The second thing is that the bathroom, although it was very clean looking, had a constant urine odor. The toilet waste is stored on/under the boat, so this may be unavoidable.

If not for the two issues listed above, I would have given 5 stars.

very cute & cozy on the i! views arent that great from decks and there is no daily cleaning service.

  • 4 of 5

a little on the expensive side for what you actually are getting, could have stayed in key west in an upscale hotel for the same price.

Nice, quiet place off the beaten path.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little place with 2 great decks & a view of the woods. Quiet & dark at night with some good star gazing from the upper deck. The marina is a bit far from the center of "the action" in Key West. Perfect for us, but be aware of that.

The shuttle van is convenient to the grocery store & Key West proper, so you don't need to drive much. Nice fresh fish market just blocks away so we grilled in, kitchen minimally stocked with dishes. As a practical note..... This place could use some hooks & cubbys, small complaint but important when you're living out of a suitcase. 1 towel bar & a few hangers isn't much for 2 travelers.

Clean, comfortable bed with nice linens & pillows. Air conditioned.

We arrived a few hours early, hot, car-tired & hungry & the boat was empty, but they wouldn't check us in. Not sure why, but it couldn't hurt. It's those small kindnesses & hospitality you appreciate when you're traveling.

All-in-all a great stay & we would stay here again.

A relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend staying at the Stock Island Marina. The Gray Snapper was spacious and clean. We instantly felt comfortable and at home. The Marina itself is quiet and peaceful. Great location - only a 15 minute drive into downtown Key West.

We would highly recommend staying here (or in any of the other houseboats)...and are already planning to come back next year!
