Overview

About the property

House Boat, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath

The Red Grouper is one of five 1 BR / 1 BA floating condos* 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 interior has been recently remodeled with new furnishings and artwork, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with 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 kick back in a more laid back atmosphere. Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboards and seasonal visitors, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel. And we're pet friendly!

Stock Island Marina Village: Stock Island Marina Village is a multi-use Marine Community located in historic Safe Harbor and serving live-aboard, recreational, and commercial vessels. 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 knowledgeable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of Key West life.

Stock Island: 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 Red Grouper 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!

Red Grouper Amenities: The Red Grouper is tastefully outfitted with everything you need during your vacation. Amenities include:

- 1 Queen Bedroom fitted with brand new 100% cotton linens, a closet, and dresser

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

- Kitchen (large refrigerator, stovetop, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster) with a breakfast bar

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

- Large outdoor deck with table, chairs, umbrella, BBQ grill

- Rooftop sitting area with chairs

- Vehicle parking next to the houseboat

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

- Pet Friendly ($50.00 per week)

- 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!

What makes this house boat unique

Peaceful and Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Red Grouper. Accommodations were clean, kitchen was great to use to cook breakfast and store food/drinks to be kept cold, and the outdoor decks were beautiful in the morning and evening when it wasn't as hot. We took advantage of the free shuttle to Key West which was awesome to save money on parking and avoid having to drive in the traffic. Lovely, quiet stay!! So happy we stayed here instead of crazy Key West.

Only two suggestions would be to put the key on a float-able key ring :) we were afraid we were going to drop it into the water every time we unlocked the door. Also, we did late check-in and we were a bit confused that the dropbox was right at the houseboat and not at the marina office. It took some walking around in the dark to figure this out but eventually all was well!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful "Boatel" on the Stock Island Marina is the perfect location. My cousin and I stayed here for 4 nights. We were able to use the local hotel free shuttle to the heart of Key West. Our driver, Chris, was a wealth of knowledge and gave us all of the local tips without being touristy. The shuttle will take you to the Pixie grocery store too, but you have to wait 40 minutes to get picked up again. There is a bar and restaurant at the hotel, walking distance to the Red Grouper. There is a fabulous restaurant/bar in Stock Island called Hogfish. Go! You have to take a taxi, call Key Lime Taxi, they were the friendliest. Ask for Jorge/George if he's available. If you need a taxi any other time throughout your stay, try to use them, most of the other companies do not like to come to Stock Island Marina and tend to be grumpy. Many of the locals live on Stock Island and are extremely friendly. There are a lot of "live-aboards " that are friendly and knowledgeable too.

The Red Grouper was very comfortable, the swamp coolers worked great, we had all the amenities we needed. The marina office where you check in has the basics if you need them before you get to the Pixie grocery store. We found so many great places to eat we only bought coffee/teas and some alcohol.

If you go to the hotel bar, find Brandon. Please tell him to call his mother and that Judi and Laura are still praying for him!

We loved our stay here and will come back again!

(Also, take the "hop on hop off" trolley on your first days and Sunset Celebration at the Westin upstairs bar)
