About Lee Leavell (Office Manager)

Currently living in Cape Coral FL. Served in the United States Marines. Owner of a custom Cable company for Networking, Fiber, Routers, Switches. Volunteer work for Veterans Foundation.

Lee Leavell (Office Manager) purchased this house boat in 2009

Why Lee Leavell (Office Manager) chose Key West

Had difficulty locating rentals on the water in Key West. Vacationed in this area much of my life, Maintenance, and cleaning is handled from Key West by a professional staff.

What makes this house boat unique

Luxury is the key term here. Everything is first class, and much more than most people expect. The biggest benefit to this location is the sunrise and sunset at the Tiki Hut. Lets not forget that we are minutes from downtown Key west.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The pleasure was all ours. The owners goal is to provide more on the water rental to people who simply want to enjoy lifes luxuries. We cannot take credit for the view nor the picturesque sunsets, however, the houseboat was pulled out for maintenance in March 2012 and painted underneath. We also installed a brand new Hot Tub for everyones pleasure.

Thanks again for staying with us we hope to visit with you in the keys soon.

Unique experience

  • 4 of 5

Our stay on "Not Big Enough" was awesome. Accomodations were great and the only thing we noticed was a little mold in the shower off hallway. Clothes dryer was not working properly but we managed. Guest should be forwarned about the area you drive through before entering the marina. It made us a little anxious in the evening hours. Unique experience and beautiful yatch club and marina!

Vacation on Not Big Enough

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on Not Big Enough for a 3 night trip with my bother and my sister with their spouses in mid Feburary. The houseboat was huge and had plenty of space for us three couples. The location was perfect for our Key West vacation, it was not too far from all the activity but far enough away for some peace and quiet. The amenities at the marina were excelent with a very nice private beach and swimming pool. It also had a very good resturant. We loved sitting up on the upper deck of the boat in the hot tub looking at the stars! We did have some ongoing issues with the airconditioner not working and a leaky toilet. I must say that Brett the on site manager did everything he could to help fix the issues and even went out of his way to drive all into town because of the inconvenience for us. Overall the boat was clean but please clean the cold air return vents, they were caked with dust. We did enjoy our stay!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay on "Not Big Enough". What can we say ...Our time on board is never long enough!! We're two families travelling with teenagers and we found the boat to be quite comfortable. The houseboat offers a good amount of space for everyone to spread out. The full size kitchen was so helpful when needing to grab a bite at home. It was great to paddle board and kayak right off the back of the boat. The husbands decided this year to paddle board halfway around Stock Island....what a workout! The marina pool and restaurant were very good, we highly recommend taking advantage of them. Our favorite restaurant in Key West is Santiago's Bodega which serves delicious tapas, reservations are recommended. Another favorite thing of ours is booking outings with Maya Adventures, 305-900-8540. Captain Brett and his crew always give us an amazing experience on the water, whether it's snorkeling, fishing, sunset trips or exploring the islands and mangroves. We hope to be back soon!!

The marina is very nice, the boat is great. The upper deck is a great way to enjoy the weather. Restaurant is great, pool. Your are not too far from downtown Key West - but you are far enough away to relax when you want.
