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 relax in a more laid back atmosphere. Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboard residents and seasonal guests, 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. We offer free wifi internet, use of our new gym, dog park and laundry facilities. 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 knowledgable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of 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!
This was our first time to Florida and we came upon this marina renting these boatels not too far away from where my brother was staying in his RV. The idea really appealed to us and we couldn't have been more pleased. (Except maybe for the really, really poor wifi, that is a problem.) The boatel was really clean and comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the comfort of having our own little apartment to relax in and also to enjoy the fishing off the lower deck and the sunshine on the upper deck. The marina office staff were all very friendly and our whole week was amazing. We would definitely want to return.
A great little getaway spot. The Boatel was clean and well equipped. Comfortable for two people to sit back and relax with nice water views. Marina personnel were very accommodating. Shuttle running from Marina to Key West very convenient. Just park the car and go. I would recommend and would stay again.
The Blue Marlin property was amazing, comforting and quaint. My boyfriend and I came during one of the busiest weekends in the Keys- boating weekend but staff was very friendly and the house was extremely clean. We even came home looking for a houseboat to buy! We will certainly be back next year as I am looking forward to staying at one of the other houseboats, if available. I highly recommend this property and the others they have on site.
The blue marlin was a nice stay. It was clean and the staff was very friendly.
Just two of us, and the houseboat was perfect for us. It is not on the island of Key West, a little "off the beaten path," which is just what we were looking for. Loved having 2 different places to sit out and watch the gentle ripples in the water or boats going in and out of the marina. It is a boat, so there was a nice gentle rock. The queen bed was very comfy, so we slept great. There was plenty of hot water, and the air conditioners kept the rest as cool as we liked.
We would love to come back!
