For our trip this year we wanted to visit the Keys. Being Florida natives we never had before. Unfortunately all the hotel prices were too high for our budget in key west. But we luckily found the Mangrove Marina. Located in Tavernier, just south of Key Largo, it's located in a quiet part of the keys. Very peaceful and off the beaten path of the main road. It's about 2 hours from Key West so accessing all the Keys has to offer is easy. The accommodations are not that of a normal hotel. You'll be staying on a full furnished houseboat. There are several to choose from, though we had the pleasure of staying in the yellowtail. The owner Mike was enthusiastic, energetic, and welcoming. He greeted us at the front office and personally walked us to our house boat and went over all the amenities of the boat. It was furnished with a couch, coffee table, kitchen table, living room TV that had Netflix and cable abilities, a lounge chair, a ball with two stools, an outdoor patio area with two Adirondack chairs, as well as an upper deck area for two people with two additional chairs. The restroom was fully stocked with towels and toiletries and was big enough to feel comfortable. The shower was a bit on the smaller size, but being a houseboat is not unthinkable, just wasn't something we expected. Taller individuals might have to duck down a bit, but again it is a houseboat so this is something to expect. But otherwise the bathroom was pleasant. The master bedroom was comfortable with plenty of closet space, a television, and a very comfortable bed. The entrance to the boat is through the master bedroom. The kitchen was clean and neat with. Full refrigerator, 2 burner stove, and sink. And even came furnished with plates, glasses, bowls, pots and pans and silverware. The secondary sleeping arrangements were a pullout couch mattress, which did not get use, and a loft area about the master bedroom with 2 twin beds. While the loft is a bit cramped regarding moving space, it was cozy and comfortable and had a window as well. There are also laundry amenities not on the houseboat, but on the marina dock, though we did not use these. All around the living space was very comfortable and enjoyable and a very unique staying experience too. Not to mention the view was superb. Great view of the sunset over the water. While of course there are other boats in the marina and you have neighbors, the area is quiet and peaceful. For the price and if you are looking for a different way of staying in the Keys, this is a wonderful way to do it and we would absolutely do it again.

WE stayed here 8/2/21 to 8/6/21. We booked online with them. I asked for a receipt Mike said you get it when you leave. We asked again for a receipt. He sent it on 8/9/21 and charged us $700 more than the online price. Said the "the system" did it and refused to refund the difference. The place is NOT the pics on the web. They are very old. And you get robbed here. Beware!!! Peter & Joan

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon and had a wonderful time! The boat was spacious for 2 people and was very clean. The location was very convenient to restaurants and shops. Sitting on the rooftop deck of the boat was the perfect way to relax and unwind. The kitchen had what we needed and the bathrooms were well stocked with towels and supplies. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again if coming back through the Keys!

Due to COVID insanity, we wanted to take a safer trip to the FL Keys during spring break. I came across the Mangrove Marina houseboats while researching accommodations & immediately realized this was an excellent alternative, even without COVID. I grew up sailing, so I’m well-versed in what living aboard a boat entails. My family isn’t quite as experienced in cruising but were up for the adventure. Staying aboard a boat with manatees swimming right up next to the boat and chilling on the back deck during sunset was far better than any hotel/condo could offer. These aren’t super luxurious boats or marina facilities, but they are more than sufficient for travelers looking for a unique experience. The boat was clean & the beds were comfortable. As many others have noted, Mike is a great marina host. The onsite restaurant was being renovated and looks like it will be awesome post-COVID. We would definitely come back!

This was a great place to get away and avoid the crowds. Boat was clean and kitchen was sufficiently stocked, beds were comfortable and sheets and linens were provided. We had a few issues with the boat but the staff was prompt and courteous in responding. Loved watching the Manatees off the deck while enjoying the sunset.
