Come stay aboard our FABULOUS houseboat Libra! Docked in one of Key West's most exclusive yacht club marinas, our guests have free access to a host of "members only" amenities including a swimming pool, private beach, tiki bar, fitness facility, sauna, clubhouse, onsite restaurant, free parking and much more!
This luxury home on the water is completely air-conditioned and heated to keep you comfortable even on the hottest days! Our full kitchen makes meal preparation a snap with a full size fridge, microwave convection oven and cooktop. We also provide a Kuerig coffee maker and the pods for easy one step coffee anytime! All linens and t...owels are included in the rental as well, so no worrying about laundry while your on vacation!
The huge outside roof deck is a great spot to enjoy a meal with family and friends, or a quiet cocktail watching the sun set over the water.The boat has been specifically built for us, and designed with a renter in mind. There are 3 private staterooms, the aft cabin has a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress, while the mid ship cabin has a full size bed with the same mattress, and another stateroom has a twin bunk bed. The sofa in the living room folds out to a queen size bed for additional sleeping options.There is a flat screen 40" TV in the living room area and the custom handmade wood trim throughout the boat gives you the overall comfort of a luxury home on the water.
Located in a very quiet and secluded marina on Stock Island, our houseboat is the perfect spot for those looking to enjoy a relaxing vacation in paradise. 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 while making new friends!
SleepAfloat boats never leave the docks but 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.
Our ultimate goal is that each of our guests have a vacation of lifetime when they stay with us. We strive to go the extra mile to make your experience truly memorable. With locations in Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Key West, and Hollywood, FL, you may never book another hotel room again!
*Rates are posted for 2 guests. Each additional guest $25/night per person.
$200 cleaning fee, $39 insurance fee and are only quoted for 2 guests.
We had a great time during our stay on Libra! The manager who met us upon arrival was very friendly and helpful. He manages the boat and told us to contact him if we needed anything. We didn't but it was nice to know that someone was there in case we needed it.
The boat was very clean and spacious. Enough room for the 6 of us to spread out. Our favorite part was the roof deck where we watched the sun set every night!
It was such a cool experience staying on a houseboat! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice quiet retreat.
The only drawback was that it was a 10 minute drive to downtown but other than that everything was perfect!
Thanks Sleepafloat! We will be back!

Words Can't Describe the Experience
Left on 02/23/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | LS
This was my second time staying on a Sleepafloat houseboat and I think this one was my favorite. Last time I had gone with my family so this time I went with the girls. We had a blast!
The local manager greeted us and was super helpful We only had to contact him once because we couldn't figure out how to use the TV remote and he helped us right away. It was really something very simple.
Others should not that the boat is not right in the center of town but about 6 miles away from Duval. It was fine for us though as we aren't big partiers and just wanted to relax and spend time with each other. We went out on the town one night and then other we stayed home and hung out on the roof deck eating, drinking, and chatting.
The boat itself was great, very clean and spacious. It was the perfect amount of space for the 6 of us, 2 slept on the queen bed, one in the double bed, one on the bunk beds and two slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room.
The only thing that would've made the experience better was if there was working Wifi on the boat itself. We had been told ahead of time that the marina Wifi was not very strong and didn't work so well on the boat but we could use it at the clubhouse just fine. It was a little inconvenient but we were on vacation and were better off not spending the entire time on the internet!
So glad to hear you and your girlfriends enjoyed your stay on Libra! We are trying to work on a solution for the Wifi but for now have to use the marina's which like you said unfortunately does not have a strong signal on the boat.
Hope to host you again next year!

Not worth the money!
Left on 01/25/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | Ray and Jesse
Much too expensive, for what it was worth. The marina was nice, but the houseboat did not come as promised. There was a tv... with no cable, or local channels... no dvd player, and a broken Ihome that didn't turn on, and no wiFi, although it was all promised.
When we first walked in it smelled like vomit, and we soon found out why. We had a couple kids come knocking on the houseboat door saying they had lost their keys in our couch cushions. They had been "Partying hard" the night before into the morning, and said that one of the kids' mom owned the boat. They entered our houseboat two more times later the first day ripping apart everything to find their keys. I paid $400 per night for a $50/night motel. Not to mention the pull out mattress was covered with dog hair and fleas. That's right... Fleas!!! The roof on the top of the boat had all of the roofing torn off previously, and it was tossed aside on the top deck. My wife and I are not snobby people. We come from hard working blue collar jobs. However, when we spent this much money on our honeymoon vacation, we expected to see more value. Very disappointed overall. Read more
We were very disappointed to receive this review. We receive nothing but glowing reviews for this property and this one was a surprise to us. We apologize to the guests that the boat did not meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on providing each and every guest with an enjoyable experience. We assure you had we been informed about the situation we would have done everything we could to make it right.
The one issue we were aware of and tried to find a solution to was the cable. During this guest's stay, the dock our boat is located lost cable and was not fixed in time for a big football game they had wanted to watch. We did offer for them to watch at the clubhouse but the damage was already done. We can understand that they were upset they could not watch the game on the boat as expected but our hands were tied on this issue as Comcast was the only one who could fix the problem and we couldn't get them to fix it in time for these guests. There also must have been confusion with the Wifi because we do not list it as an amenity. It is free at the marina but does not extend to our dock so guests looking to use the WIfi must go to the clubhouse.
The boat was fully cleaned hours before their arrival, without signs of vomit, fleas or dog hair (there hasn't been an animal on board the boat in over a month). We've had the boat inspected since without a sign of fleas, but nevertheless have fumigated just in case.
In response to the debris on the roof, there was a windstorm the night before these guest arrived. A few panels from the hardtop blew off and were found the morning these guests arrived. Rather than disrupt the guests during their stay, our Site Manager put them in a pile out of the way until he could get back on to fix it. Had he permission to board the boat, he would have fixed it for them but he was told they did not want to be interrupted which is completely understandable when you are on a honeymoon vacation.
We have a Site Manager on hand at this location to deal with any issues that arise, had he been informed that the guests were not pleased with the condition of the boat he would have done everything possible to remedy the situation. We encourage anyone that stays with us to notify us if you have concerns with the boat so we can make the attempt to better service you.
If you are interested in this property and have concerns, please feel free to contact us to discuss. We can share with you numerous honest and positive reviews we've received on this and other listing sites.
The Libra was spacious and very, very clean!

Just got back from Key West (Stock Island) after renting the Libra for 3 days and nights. Everything we needed was there and very, very clean. Comfortable beds, great aC, full size fridge and stove. Huge TV, which we didn't use. Beautiful upper deck. Great for early morning sunrise and coffee, or late night glass of wine. Very quiet and peaceful marina. Nice pool and restaurant. The marina is large, but very well maintained. I would rent this houseboat again in a heartbeat!!! Read more
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Come back any time!

Great experience to change the hotel routine; very nice boat with a plus of a nice pool and Bar at the marina; very close to downtown but far enough to don't suffer the traffic.
Highly recommended great people to deal with.

the service was average at best, when we got there the boat was not very clean, the frig was dirty and still had old food and debris in it, the stove top was sticky, the bathrooms needed wiped down and had a 1/2 roll of toilet tissue in each and only 3 towels each for a week. no paper towels,4 cups of coffee(which they advertised there would be plenty)the floors were dirty and if you took your shoes off turned your feet black. the top deck floor had sticky spills all over and the bar and table top was dirty, no bucket or mop and no cleaning supplies we had to go to the store and pick up supplies (also front window was busted out)

We all had a great time. It was far away from everything yet close to everything at the same time. Restaurant had excellent food and pool was great. On the downside the boat was not cleaned when we got there and the hammock I so looked forward to was not there. All n all it was a great time n we rented it again this year. Hope it's clean n ready this year when we get there Read more
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay despite the rocky (pun intended) start! We apologize for not being prepared on time for your arrival but glad to hear it all worked out in the end so well that you're coming back!
