“WONDERFULLY UNIQUE”

Four of us from Seattle are
finishing a memorable one-week stay on the Libra. We all agree the experience is something we won't soon forget. The website pictures of the Libra are accurate. The houseboat interior is spacious and beautifully appointed, perfect for two couples. Large flat screen tv was a plus, as was the functional fully equipped galley. Quiet central air conditioning provided comfortable temps for sleeping but during the daytime, we preferred A/C off, and instead opening the windows and sliding glass doors to welcome the Gulf breezes and fresh sea
air. The upper deck beckoned at cocktail hour and also provided hours of enjoyable sunbathing, reading, and stargazing. It was the perfect venue for watching the magnificent sunrises and
sunsets that define the Keys.
The marina is on Stock Island, just a few miles ($20 taxi fare)
from the heart of Key West. Two of the best restaurants in the area are on the island, minutes away: Roostica and Hog Fish Grill. Highly recommend them both, as well as the marina restaurant itself where the sunset view of the Gulf from the deck created a lasting impression.
If you require the amenities and service of a five star hotel, perhaps you might look elsewhere. No, the towels and linens didn't match, the kitchen was lacking a few supplies and top guns from nearby Naval base racing noisily across the sky could be a distraction. But the affable property manager Ray lived up to his promise of being available 24/7 for any needs we had, returning phone calls within minutes...not easy to do considering it turns out he is Executive Chef at one of the best restaurants in Key West, the New York Pasta Garden, where he and his staff treated us like royalty on one of our final days.
I highly recommend foregoing the b&b's and hotel chains of Key West and head instead to Stock Island to the Libra for an experience it would be hard to duplicate anywhere else than here in what is aptly known as the Conch Republic.

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!

Best,

“Not worth the money!”
1 5 étoiles Avis écrit le 26 janvier 2014 Séjour en janvier 2014

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.

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.

“Unique Experience”

I stayed on the Libra for a week earlier this month with my husband, mother-in-law, 2 sons ages 8 and 10, and our dog. The houseboat was the perfect size for the 5 of us and probably would be a bit tight for any more than 5 (keeping in 2 of our 5 were "small").

All in all, we all agreed that staying on this houseboat was really cool and added an additional "experience" to the entire vacation. The marina is beautiful and my sons really enjoyed walking around checking out the other boats and yachts and exploring for sea creatures. We saw lobsters, tarpon, parrotfish, a nurse shark, and crabs right outside the deck of the houseboat! They loved keeping track of everything they saw. The pool is decent and it's nice to have a restaurant and bar to enjoy while at the pool. The small beach area next to the pool is small but adequate - everyone knows you don't got to Key West for the "beaches". We were under the impression that the use of kayaks was free to those staying in the marina, but came to find out that there was a $20 rental fee per day to use them. Not expensive but just a bit of a disappointment after what it cost to just stay there for a week. Plus, the guy that you had to rent them from wasn't on site, so you had to call him and wait for him to come and give you the kayak. We heard the kyaks used to be free but some people were taking them back to their boats and not "sharing" so they marina decided to start charging. Not sure if this is true or not. The marina pretty much shuts down at night. It's quiet hours as of 10pm and they aren't kidding - you could hear a pin drop! So this is definitely not the place to be if you are looking to party all hours of the night.

The houseboat is fairly new - built earlier this year, I believe - but is already showing signs of wear. You can see spots/buckeling in the wood flooring in the main living area that appear to be caused from maybe water underneath. There are also a few strange looking stained areas on the walls in the living room and dining area. There was also an issue with the 2 front large living room windows next to the sliding glass entry door - one window was being held on with black tape, and the other window was completely covered over. We heard that the windows had been broken over spring break several months ago. Both windows need to be fixed and it would have been nice to have been able to enjoy the view out of those windows, had they been there. How long does it take to fix a window? It was very windy a few nights and you could hear a metal grinding noise coming from the top deck. We thought at first it was the wind dragging the chairs around but later came to realize it was the metal roof of the top deck. Really loud at some points!! It also rained pretty hard a few nights and it looked as if the one side of the deck roof was going to cave in. The roof needs to be checked out. The hallway bathroom toilet seemed to have an issue with gnats - every time you flushed, several would fly up from underneath and then fly around the bathroom until we killed them. I understand it's a boat bathroom, but the other bathroom didn't have this problem and it was pretty gross. There weren't really enough bath towels for the week for 5 of us, nor was there enough toilet paper, tissues or paper towels for the week. We had to pick up these items throughout the week. But all of those things aside, our biggest issue really was that the boat was not clean upon arrival. The floor was very dirty - walking without shoes for a few minutes and your feet were black. We actually joked about it a few days in and took pictures of our dirty feet. The refrigerator was empty but smelled terrible - as if something fishy had spilled and never been wiped up. We had to clean it on the first day ourselves, with Lysol that we bought ourselves, although the odor never really went away entirely. You just don't want to have to clean when you're on vacation. Also, WiFi was available but we had a hard time getting a good connection while on the boat. It was better at the clubhouse/pool area.

Despite all of these things, we still loved the houseboat and would definitely stay again. We are not really complainers and understand sometimes these things happen and we don't let things like this ruin our vacations. I would strongly recommend to SleepAfloat that you get a better cleaning company, or if it's the property manager Mike, he needs to be given the feedback that his cleaning job is not really cutting it.

We were also under the impression that the marina was about a 10 minute bike ride into Key West. Please be aware that the marina is actually on Stock Island, not IN Key West and the area leading back into the marina is not that great and definitely not one that I would ride bikes through with my family and especially at night. Once you are in the marina, it's very secluded and safe, patroled by guards. Howeve the gate is not guarded - it opens automatically when you drive up to it - and never once did anyone ever stop us to ask us where we were staying, which did seem kind of strange. How did they know who we were? Cabs are a bit pricey (as are most things in Key West) but are easy to come by. Parking in Key West is terrible and expensive and so cabbing it worked better for us most nights.

As I said, overall, it was a wonderful, unique experience and if we go back to Key West again, we would definitely stay on this boat again.

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)
