*****

Located at the south end of Key Largo and the northern end of Islandmorada...when you are at the Marina you feel away from everything.

"Baycation" is brand newly remodeled, very comfortable, VERY CLEAN, and tastefully decorated. All linens and kitchenware are thouroughly cleaned after each guest.

There is access to paddle boards and kayaks right in the marina

The triple upper deck is nicely shaded for afternoon use and amazing to enjoy at night under the stars.

Everyone of all ages enjoy this vacation, take a peek yourself with the guest book everyone signs!

******

You can leave Boston or New York on one of dozens of 3 to 2.5 hour daily direct flights to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami in the morning and be on board by early afternoon, in the tropics.

Of course, the winter season is most popular with temperatures in the 70's to low 80's for Nov-Mar with almost no rain (1-2 inches per month).

The Keys have half the summer rainfall that South Florida (e.g., Miami) does.

Our sea breezes and temperatures stay in the mid-to-high 80's & 90’s. That's why Floridians vacation in the Keys during the summer months given the great year-round weather.

During the summer most of our renters are from Florida, and they know the best places to go in the state.

The marina is protected on all four sides, which creates just a gentle movement of the boat, certainly a great night sleep.

“Baycation” is brand newly renovated with all the comforts of home and available for your vacation. She stays on the dock; she cannot be moved from the marina.. Your vacation will be stationary, but have the experience of living right on the water. Try a unique boating experience for your next vacation!

Heidi Barnes purchased this boat in 2016

Why Heidi Barnes chose Islamorada

You’ll enjoy your stay in the island paradise of Tavernier---(Right between Key Largo and Islamorada), which is a great location!~

When you travel to Tavernier—an easy drive from the mainland— you’ll find an accessible island getaway, with plenty of chances to dive, snorkel or just enjoy the beautiful sunset, everyone tells me they have the best night sleep on the boat.

It is also a perfect place to spend a night or two on your way to Key West, before the traffic bottlenecks up just south of the marina, with a two lane highway to key west or on your way back to the mainland and airports.

The self-proclaimed Dive Capital of the World. Key Largo is home to the world's largest artificial reef, the 510-foot USS Spiegel Grove, the John Pennekamp Coral Reef Underwater State Park and the African Queen. Everglades National Park is just a short trip away. Diving, snorkeling and glass-bottom boating in the clear waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary are fantastic experiences. Watersport activities are plentiful, including fishing, kayaking and swimming with the dolphins. Or, just relax with a tropical beverage and watch the beautiful sunsets.

What makes this boat unique

There is a lot to do in the marina, walking distance, and a shopping center 1/2 mile north of the marina, although when you are at the Marina you feel away from everything.

"Baycation" is very comfortable, VERY CLEAN, and tastefully decorated. All linens and kitchenware are thoroughly cleaned after each guest.

upon request, you have use of your own paddleboard and kayaks during your stay.

The triple upper deck is nicely shaded for afternoon use and amazing to enjoy at night under the stars.

Everyone of all ages enjoy this vacation, take a peek yourself with the guest book everyone signs and you have a welcome book on board for your entire stay to remind you of all the great ideas available.

Amazing, beautiful, relaxing, unique, great location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this unique, fun boat. Never stayed on boat before & was surprised by how spacious, stylish, quiet, relaxing, perfect location (good restaurants, fishing & snorkeling charters, beaches within minutes) this experience was. Like new boat surrounded by large boats yet very serene. Watch manatees & fish while relaxing having wine or coffee on the porch or deck. This boat has everything you need including kayaks & bikes. Canal is short yet beautiful trip to the Atlantic & small island (with beach). Can’t say enough what a great time this was and how over the top, accommodating Heidi is to make your trip a true memory maker. We highly, highly recommend you give it a try.

Lovely and different experience

  • 5 of 5

Thanks very much to Heidi for letting us stay on her lovely boat , it’s a different and enjoyable experience. Unfortunately we only had one night here so didn’t get a chance to try out out all the different water based activities that are available close by.

Ken & Cindy’s Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3-nights on Baycation during June 2018. The interior was spotless and recently remodeled. Heidi “comped” us a kayak for our stay, which was much appreciated. The only negative we could identify was the overall messiness of the Marina. Kayaks and other equipment were laying around every which way. Some of this may be attributed to the Sep 2017 hurricane. Would suggest in the future to make sure the BBQ Grill and Picnic Table area is cleaned prior to guest arrival. But, overall, a very good stay!
