About Lee Leavell (Office Manager)

Currently living in Cape Coral FL. Served in the United States Marines. Owner of a custom Cable company for Networking, Fiber, Routers, Switches. Volunteer work for Veterans Foundation.

Lee Leavell (Office Manager) purchased this house boat in 2009

Why Lee Leavell (Office Manager) chose Key West

Had difficulty locating rentals on the water in Key West. Vacationed in this area much of my life, Maintenance, and cleaning is handled from Key West by a professional staff.

What makes this house boat unique

Luxury is the key term here. Everything is first class, and much more than most people expect. The biggest benefit to this location is the sunrise and sunset at the Tiki Hut. Lets not forget that we are minutes from downtown Key west.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The pleasure was all ours. The owners goal is to provide more on the water rental to people who simply want to enjoy lifes luxuries. We cannot take credit for the view nor the picturesque sunsets, however, the houseboat was pulled out for maintenance in March 2012 and painted underneath. We also installed a brand new Hot Tub for everyones pleasure.

Thanks again for staying with us we hope to visit with you in the keys soon.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay on "Not Big Enough". What can we say ...Our time on board is never long enough!! We're two families travelling with teenagers and we found the boat to be quite comfortable. The houseboat offers a good amount of space for everyone to spread out. The full size kitchen was so helpful when needing to grab a bite at home. It was great to paddle board and kayak right off the back of the boat. The husbands decided this year to paddle board halfway around Stock Island....what a workout! The marina pool and restaurant were very good, we highly recommend taking advantage of them. Our favorite restaurant in Key West is Santiago's Bodega which serves delicious tapas, reservations are recommended. Another favorite thing of ours is booking outings with Maya Adventures, 305-900-8540. Captain Brett and his crew always give us an amazing experience on the water, whether it's snorkeling, fishing, sunset trips or exploring the islands and mangroves. We hope to be back soon!!

  • 5 of 5

The marina is very nice, the boat is great. The upper deck is a great way to enjoy the weather. Restaurant is great, pool. Your are not too far from downtown Key West - but you are far enough away to relax when you want.

Wonderful Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This boat was amazing, we had 5 in our party and had more than enough room. It was very comfortable and clean. We stayed a total of 3 nights 4 days and it was not near enough time. I highly recommend this place, the Office manager Lee was great to work with and made our stay easy to book and my deposit made it home shortly after I did. Thank you for a great get away and we will be back for sure.

Puts the "House" in "Houseboat".

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the door we were all wowed with this big, beautiful boat. We've stayed on boats before and everything was sort of "miniature". Small, cramped bathroom, tiny kitchen, tight dining space. Not here! It feels very much like a regular house. We were two couples so we had tons of room. My husband and I got to stay in the master bedroom. It has an attached bath that is spacious and has a large bath/shower. We also loved the deck outside our sliding glass doors. The other couple used the middle bedroom and the hall bath. That bath has a door from the middle bedroom and also from the hall, so by closing the one in the hall they had their own "en suite". We didn't use the lower bedroom. The jacuzzi got a lot of use and it was great sitting up there on the top deck. When you looked over the side of the boat it was like looking into an aquarium. Thousands of little fish swimming in big swirls and then parting when a tarpon or other big fish cruised through. One morning we had a manatee visit and that was very exciting.

It was nice to find salt, pepper, oil, sugar, coffee creamer, coffee filters, and miscellaneous herbs, spices and condiments in the cupboards. Some rentals clear everything out after every guest. Likewise, the bathrooms had shampoo, conditioner, and liquid hand soap. There was also a small hair dryer. We did bring bar soap for the showers.

The marina is really nice and the restaurant serves great food. When we first went in we were afraid that it was only for yacht club members, but they welcomed us without asking any questions. It took a long time to get our main courses which was okay because we were sitting outside enjoying the view. There's also a small store where you can get ice, beer, boating supplies, etc.

We didn't want to risk DUI tickets so we always used taxis when we went down to Key West. It was $6.50 per person plus tip for the 4 of us. There are a few restaurants very close to the boat. The only one we tried was the Hog Fish and we really like the feel of the place and the food was good.

All of my correspondence for the boat were with a nice man named Lee. He is very easy to work with and is lightening-fast at getting the deposit back to you after you depart. We've rented VRBOs all over the place and never had a deposit returned so quickly.

My husband and our friends told me several times that I had done a great job finding this boat for us to stay on. It was awesome!

Fabulous late Christmas get together with family!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a late Christmas onboard the fantastic houseboat. There were 6 adults and we never felt crowded. I thought that the houseboat was extremely clean and very well equipped with everything and anything one could possible need!! Loved the hot tub with the most beautiful view...Loved seeing manatee that came right up to the dock and even rolled over for a tummy rub :-) Close enough to everything yet far enough away to be quiet and relaxing...Loved the "free" airshow put on by the fighter jets from the local naval base located by the southern most point in the US. Duval Street kept everyone happy along with parasailing, jet skiing, and anything else that might make you happy. I would definitely recommend this beautiful extremely large houseboat to anyone!!!
