Renting a houseboat in Florida was not something ever on our radar, but when the opportunity presented itself on our recent family vacation to Florida we jumped aboard..

We wanted our stay to be unique and in keeping with the safe COVID-19 vacation world. The houseboat rentals offered seclusion plus serenity. You won’t have to worry about making noise – we had plenty of distance to the nearest neighbor, and you certainly won’t have to worry about intrusion into your safe travel bubble.

The houseboat gives you that similar close to nature feel, but in a stationary way, with less movement work on your behalf. It was also more spacious with stunning decks all round.

Sunrise will come from behind you. So, you get pretty colors in front and a soft light on the mangroves on the opposite side of the river.

We missed sunset from the houseboat unfortunately as we were out busy every evening doing activities, but it’s meant to be amazing. You’ll get to see it drop behind the mangroves.

We jumped in the hot tub late one night and loved watching the stars directly above us. What more do you want from your accommodation?

Another fantastic outdoor feature of the houseboat is the small BBQ deck at the end of the wooden pier where the boat is moored is a small deck with BBQ for your cookouts
