Photos and Description of this Stock Island holiday house boat

1 Queen bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 2

The Green Turtle is one of five 1 BR / 1 BA floating houses* 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 houseboat is brand new and has been outfitted with new furnishings and artwork, and the bedroom and bathroom are equipped with luxury towels and linens. We also have coin operated laundry machines for your convenience. Stock Island Marina Village features 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.

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.

Green Turtle Amenities: The Green Turtle is tastefully outfitted with everything you need during your vacation. Amenities include:

- 1 Queen Bedroom with a closet and dresser

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

- Kitchen (refrigerator, stovetop, convection oven/ microwave, coffeemaker, toaster) with a bistro dinette

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

- Covered outdoor deck with table, chairs, BBQ grill & uncovered deck with lounge chairs

- Vehicle parking next to the houseboat

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

- Pet Friendly

- 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.

The Green Turtle had everything that we needed. It was very clean, well maintained, quiet, perfect!

We had a wonderful experience! The Green Turtle and the Marina Village are located close enough to everything in Key West that you can get there in less than 15 minutes but far enough away that you can relax in the quiet at the end of the day and enjoy sitting on the porch with a glass of wine. The sailboat residents were also very quiet, but friendly. We were impressed by the security although we were never concerned. The facilities are nice and everything was very convenient. Particularly nice was the free shuttle service. The staff at the marina were very helpful and communicated well with us and made everything easy. We had a late flight and did not arrive until after hours and I received a call on my cell phone letting me know exactly what to do and where to go. It could not have been simpler.

A lot of fun

  • 4 of 5

The boatel was in good shape, we had a good time on our stay. The marina staff was excellent to deal with. The marina itself could use a good cleaning, there's a lot of live a boards and they have a lot of junk scattered about.

My husband and I stayed at the Green Turtle on our honeymoon. It was close to all the activities in Key West but without the parking issues. Everyone there was super nice and helpful. We did a lot of fishing from the deck on the boat. It was super convenient and the fishing was great. If you are looking for someplace a little different from the usual hotel room I would highly recommend one of the boatels available.

We had an amazing time. The location could not be better. Very nicely maintained property. Can't wait for the Hotel to be finished, up and running.

It is what it is... but

  • 1 of 5

Even though the pictures that we available were what the property was, what could have been helpful were pictures of the area. The view from the little porch was really just a berm of weedy trees separating the marina from the ocean so there really wasn't any kind of view (not depicted in the description). Even though one review mentioned a little something about the area, we really weren't expecting what we came on to. Maybe it just wasn't our cup of tea and that is fine, to each his own. However, we felt it was best to find accommodations that better fit our liking and deal with it in the morning. Upon arriving at Stock Island, we met with Jordan, very lovely lady, to not put it down, but to simply make a fair and suitable arrangement being that it just wasn't going to work for us. Being a weekday, i'm confident that the cabin wasn't in a high demand time of the year, but fair is fair and we offered to pay for the 1 of the 3 nights, even though we didn't stay and be on with our vacation. Unfortunately, Jordan's knee jerk reaction was little more than "too bad, policy it policy". Being that we booked this not even 6 days before arrival, the 30 policy certainly was out of the question, however, on the side of good business, exceptions can always be made. Unfortunately, Jordan decided to take the firm stance and left us no alternative to dispute the entire charges with AmEx. So, to all that are interested, in all fairness, it's a nice place, if you can get past the undesirable neighborhood to get there, the construction going on nearby, no view whatsoever and the more than we thought drive in to old town that was described (it might just be a few miles, but really, it's more like 45 minutes).

Beautifully maintained, quiet spot on the marina! We will definitely be returning!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so much more than we imagined. For the price, we were thrilled with the condition of the boat, location, privacy, and super staff at the marina! If you're nice to the locals, they'll even tip you off to the couple with the shrimp boat for some fresh shrimp! What a wonderful experience if you truly want to be a part of old Key West life!!

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!
