Space 0 m²
Property type house

About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 8

The M/V Coconuts is a completely unique home with 360 degree water views. It also happens to be an exceedingly rare 50-foot Florida Bay Coaster Trawler permanently docked at the Key West Harbour Yacht Club, featuring a restaurant, infinity pool and a private beach! This is more than a boat. It really is a very comfortable home, with proper living area, bedrooms and large sundecks.

There is over 1100 sq ft of indoor living space and another 500 sq ft of balcony and sundeck.THE LIVING AREA...Walk into the Florida-modern living room with a sleeper sofa encircled by large windows and facing the flat screen TV with expanded Dish service.

The open kitchen has a home-sized oven/range and double door refrigerator/freezer. Go up the three canteloupe-colored steps to the office with its glass-topped desk, if you must work. The end of this main deck and the aft deck provides views of the world-class yachts underway within the marina and the Atlantic beyond. You could spend all afternoon out here, day after day or choose instead a different deck every day, sharing the relaxing sunshine with a delicate blue heron or a curious pelicans, and even an occasional manatee.

THE KEY WEST HARBOR MARINA...Guests on board the M/V Coconuts enjoy full membership privileges at the Key West Harbour Marina including dining at the gourmet restaurant and lounging below, at the marina's big harbor front infinity pool. Steps from the pool area and an outdoor bar is the quiet beach with chaises, a Tiki bar out on the point, and a fully equipped gym that includes a sauna. Sunday nights there is even a potluck happy hour party organized by boat owners at the marina and all of our guests are welcome to join in the fun!

For those looking to spend time out on the open waters there is a sailing company that operates daily charters right from the marina. These are fully customizable charters that may include activities such as snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. If interested, please inquire about special SleepAfloat guest pricing.

THE ACCOMMODATIONS...The master bedroom has a queen bed with a 180-degree view through big windows, with command of the marina and the ocean. The en-suite bathroom/wardrobe has a full-sized vanity and shower. The spacious second bedroom has two twins beds that also can act as a king. The en-suite bathroom also has a full-sized shower. In the pilot house, you'll find a twin bunk bed, perfect for extra guests. Walking through the pilot house's doors that you'll choose to leave wide open to enjoy the ambiance, there are wraparound passageways perfect for enjoying a pina colada and exterior stairs. Walk topsides to a 360 degree deck, then down to the boardwalk to the Tiki Bar.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My daughter opted out of her high school senior week beach trip and requested a unique family and friend experience. Wow, did the M/V Coconuts Provide!!! We had 5 kids, 2x19, 1x18, 1x16, and 1x12 years old, plus Mom and Dad. The charm and the funky vibe of the boat wowed the entire crew. We own a tiny lake house in NY and I appreciated the thought that went into the compact storage and availability of all needs for preparing supper for 7. Ray was responsive and helpful, and Key West was a wonderful way to begin our vacation. Great A/C for July and the most comfortable bed in the master suite! The pullout worked great for our 12 year old (who cuddled with Dad when I woke early to sit on the deck off the kitchen). Thank you for the gorgeous thunderstorm to lull us to sleep, and the feeling of being a guest in a friend's home. I love that my teenagers and tweener missed it when we took our next leg of our trip to South Beach, Miami. I know I did! M/V Coconuts rules!

Overall pretty good. Clean and neat.

  • 3 of 5

Definitely a cool factor staying onboard for overnights. Fairly rustic and a bit overpriced. The lower level bedroom does not have a tv and the large AC unit is directly overhead on deck. Real loud.

A great family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful!!! Loved the sunsets and the boat was big enough to cook meals in.

The rooms were cozy and did not feel like we were on a boat.

I have recommended this boat to others and will continue to do so and we plan to stay on it again in the future, make it our annual vacation spot!

Best Choice Rental!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I stepped on board I knew I had made the correct choice. Far better then any hotel can offer. Either of their boats are clean and a joy to return to for quiet time on one of the decks. Rooms are all separate and comfortable. I would go back in a heartbeat.
