The owners of Keys Houseboat Rentals are wonderful. Very hospitable and willing to help in any way. The houseboat itself is very clean, and has ample kitchen space to store food and to sit inside and eat. It was a bit tight for a family with four children. My husband is 6'6 and it was something we never took into account, as the ceiling height was much shorter. Other than that, we had a most enjoyable stay and loved the Keys.
