We rented the houseboat for 4th of July weekend and loved it! Brought our boat and tied it right up to the house! Super convenient, great location, very clean and comfortable. The owner was great and very helpful if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend this place and we will be back soon for sure!

My friend and I planned a last minute trip to Tavernier for Memorial Day Weekend. Every hotel in Islamorada was booked, which is where we wanted to stay. After calling about 30 hotels I stumbled upon VRBO and Mariela was an absolute sweetheart and on top of everything and super accommodating. It was definitely meant to be! This house boat was so cute/spacious and there were no noisy obnoxious neighbors to worry about! We had a blast and in comparison to the shoebox hotels our friends were staying in, we definitely hit the jackpot. Everything was clean, there were towels, shampoo, conditioner and mini soap bottles as well as a TV and AC. We felt right at home and we loved the little tiki bar. I felt so safe and I would absolutely recommend this house boat and stay again! Also, I left one of my favorite hats and they let me know it was in lost and found. Great deal for what you get!

We needed a place to stay that had more than two beds for my husband and me and our two adult-sized children. The Sand Dollar was a very unique way for us to spend the last day of our trip to the Keys. The boat was very comfortable. We made use of the screened-in porch as well as the comfortable living room area. The beds in the loft were a little small for adults, but were better than all being crammed into one hotel room. The queen bed was very comfortable. The highlight of the evening, however, was being greeted by a manatee mother and her baby!

We stumbled upon this houseboat in our search for a weekend escape in the Keys. What a great place to spend a couple of nights! The boat was just as described and the marina is an interesting locale. Heidi was a great host she even let us come in a night earlier than planned, at the last minute, when we needed to escape a terrible week of work drama. She met us at the boat and made sure we were settled in and even sat by the fire that night with us and the other houseboat renters. Theres a very nice bath house, you can bring your own boat (we were able to tie ours up right next to our rental) and we even had a visit from a giant and friendly manatee who enjoyed drinking from the fresh water hose on the dock. The boat was decorated very comfortably and our only recommendation would be to have some pots/pans for cooking (yes, were the weird travelers who actually enjoy cooking up our catch or other specialties while on vacation but the grills outside sufficed to get us through). Our dog Scally loved the experience, too. Id highly recommend staying here and well definitely be back!
