Nancy D. said… Best little house
What a spectacular little house! The space was planned brilliantly, so it feels much bigger than it is. All brand new, lovely colors, comfortable bed.There is a full sized refrigerator and a 5 burner gas stove, so you could actually cook like you do at home. The porch is deep enough that you could sit out there with friends late into the evening, right on the water. My husband is an architect, and we couldn’t really find anything that we would change about this house! I would highly recommend this rental to everyone except the very young (might fall overboard) or someone who has trouble climbing stairs (they are a little steep.)
We really enjoyed our week here. The bungalow is really well designed, snug and cozy with all the comforts of home in a very compact space. It is clean, well furnished, and even stocked with some condiments in the kitchen and soft drinks in the fridge. The marina is a very quiet area, with boats at no-wake speed and the deli is especially convenient for quick breakfasts. The owners met us with a key, showed us the layout, then left us to ourselves. The one extra thing we requested they delivered within an hour. Perfect.

My husband could hardly wait to stay at this Floating Bungalow. Our friends keep asking to see the pictures. The house was clean, beautiful, comfortable and unique. My husband got up early each morning to fish off the dock while I enjoyed sitting on the front porch looking at the water and feeding the turtles. This property is located at Boat Tree Marina at the bottom of a steep ramp that led to the dock. Bring rolling suitcase and cooler for easier transport of your

The house looked just like it did on the website. Everything we needed to make our stay special was at our fingertips. My husband and son fished while I scrap booked. My son even ventured out in one of the kayaks.I used the pool at the marina one day and it was so relaxing. I can’t wait to go back again.

We have always wanted to stay on a houseboat and found this neat little place. One of the owners met us onsite and gave us instruction on how to use some of the features of the boat. It really is a floating home with a full kitchen and bath. It had everything that you could possibly need for any length of stay. We really enjoyed sitting on the back porch relaxing and doing a good bit of fishing. We spent most of our time there! Everyone we met at the marina was very nice and friendly. (My son made many trips to the marine store to buy bait, hooks, etc. so I am sure he was one of their best customers during the week). Shopping was close by as well as lots of places to eat. There is a small deli onsite which serves a great breakfast and lunch. I would recommend this place as a nice alternative to sitting in a hotel room. It was enough space for the 3 of us since the sofa opened up into a double bed. If we are ever in that area again, would stay here. Our son told us that this was his favorite part of our week long vacation. Thanks for letting us stay at your place!
