If there is anything in the refrigerator or cabinets use it. Sometimes you get real lucky and the guest before you really over bought. About Key Largo Key Largo is an island in the upper Florida Keys archipelago and, at 33 miles (53 km) long, the largest of the Keys. It is also the northernmost of the Florida Keys in Monroe County, and the northernmost of the Keys connected by U.S. Highway 1 (the Overseas Highway). Its earlier Spanish name was Cayo Largo, meaning Long Key. Key Largo is a popular tourist destination and calls itself the "Diving Capital of the World" because the living coral reef a few miles offshore attracts thousands of scuba divers and sport-fishing enthusiasts. Key Largo is situated between Everglades National Park to the north-west and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park to the east, the first underwater park in the United States and the site of the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States.

    The SpaceDISCOUNTED RATES JUNE 5-13 & JULY 5-9 Calypso has 700 square feet of dining and living area, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a full kitchen. Additionally, there is a huge rooftop deck with a covered wet bar, sitting/lounging areas and a dining table. She is brand new with top end furnishings and docked in Key Largo at the Pilot House Marina. This just built 3 bedroom houseboat-style yacht with luxury furnishings sits directly in the water, on Lake Largo, at the Pilot House (PH) Marina–a number #1 rated marina in the Florida Keys. Just down the dock is the Pilot House Restaurant and Glass Bottom Bar–a locals' favorite with in/outdoor dining, and tiki bar. With 30+ glass floor panels and underwater lighting, watch the fish in our Caribbean waters. Your dock leads to the PH Boardwalk where you can sign up for scuba and snorkling dive tours, take an underwater tour of a Coral Restoration facility, charter a fishing boat, store your own boat, or walk down the road to swim with the dolphins. The kids can bike to the town water park or tennis courts, or you can spend the day at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park–all described below. And that's all within 1-5 minutes of your Key Largo marina. Or, spend a day driving through the Keys, over the 7-Mile Bridge to Mallory Square in Key West, and see the jugglers and street performers while watching the most famous sunset in the US. Calypso sleeps up to 8. Stainless steel appliances. She has a huge roof top deck with a covered granite wet bar and dining area with grill. She is right in the middle of the marina–watch the yachts and fishing boats come in and out. The master bed room has a huge 6'x6' window with unobstructed marina views. Side windows may or may not have views depending on when other boats dock alongside. She is on a floating 5 foot wide concrete dock, so its just one 9' step up onto the boat's deck at any tide. The docks are lighted and very stable–they don't sway or move, except imperceptily up and down with the tide. The dock is connected to the Boardwalk by a long ramp with handrails; there are no steps to the Boardwalk. Its a safe first nautical experience for people of all ages who have never been on a boat before. The Pilot House Marina, Restaurant and Glass Bottom Bar is located on Lake Largo in the heart of Key Largo, FL–the best diving and fishing waters of the world. Relax at the casual Glass Bottom Tiki Bar while overlooking your houseboat. From wings to stuffed lobster, burgers, fish, shrimp, steak, and daily specials all Pilot House family priced. Several nights each week local musicians perform–you can hear it on Calypso, but the music ends by 11 PM if its not your favorite. Check out the PH Marina website for live webcams of the action and performers' schedule. Calypso's dock leads to the Boardwalk in front of the Glass Bottom Bar. Walk to the Key Largo Fisheries market on the other side of Lake Largo to bring home fish/lobster/crab that's just hours old, cooked or raw. Or, eat the freshest seafood possible right at their new café. There are dozens of restaurants, many outdoors and on the water, within a 1-15 minute drive. Great food by Chef Todd, of the prior PH Calypso restaurant of many years, is available right across the street at the American Legion, with the cheapest drink prices in the Keys. See the link, below, to Calypso's website, for detailed information as there's just too much to say here. Stroll down the PH Boardwalk and sign up for a scuba or snorkeling trip by boat to the John Pennekemp Coral Reef State Park, just a few minutes away by boat. The undersea Park and the adjacent Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary cover 178 nautical square miles of coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangrove swamps. The Park extends 3 miles into the Atlantic and is 25 miles long. These areas preserve the only living coral reef in the continental US. You can also drive the 3.6 miles to the Park's Visitor Center and see the 30,000 gallon aquarium, or use their three sandy swimming beachs (a rarity in the Keys) one of which has the remnants of a Spanish shipwreck just 100 feet off shore for snorkling fun. If you don't snorkle, go out on their glass-bottom boat or canoe/kayak the park's inland waters surrounded by mangroves. Walk the trails and picnic. You can visit the underwater Park, two times a day, right from the PH's Boardwalk aboard one of two dive boats (Scuba-Do and Keys Diver). Bring your own equipment, or use theirs and learn by diving the shallow reefs, or sign up for wreck dives in the crystal clear waters of Key Largo and Tavernier. Free moorings are provided throughout the Park (daytime use only) if you want to snorkle or scuba from your own boat. Call the Dock Master (Matt, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) to bring your own boat and store it on their racks, on its trailer or in the water nearby. There's also an unsual highspeed Russian glass bottom hydrofoil boat (Largo Looker) that leaves right from Pilot House at 9:00AM and 12:30PM for 2.5 hour tours ($65@). Further down the board walk, charter a fishing boat for the day, or visit the Coral Restoration Foundation Educational Center. Take their 1- or 2-day coral preservation course which includes lectures on coral anatomy and two afternoon dives, one in the coral nursery and one at an outplanting site. Of course, you can get PADI scuba certified at all three dive centers at the Pilot House. You may even want to leave the marina! Walk a few hundred feet down the street to Dolphins Plus, the original Swim With The Dolphins (or sea lions) program in Key Largo. Or, drive a couple minutes down to the next harbor and take a dinner cruise aboard the steam powered African Queen–its the actual boat used by Hepburn & Bogart in the 1951 movie! Let the kids bike 1/2 mile, down residential streets, to the Jacobs Aquatic Center's three pools with water slides, etc. Next door the town's park offers free tennis, handball, roller blade/cardio paths and dog walking areas. Beaches are rare in the Keys which are made of builtup coral, but you can drive and park at tiny beachs along the Overseas Highway in Islamorada. There are three nice beaches at the John Pennekamp Park (one with a Spanish wreck 100' off shore) and elsewhere in the Keys, and we'll tell you where they are. There are dozens of restaurants, many with Tiki bars, on the water. And, we're less than a 2 hour road trip to Key West, with the most unusual scenery you'll see anywhere on a roadtrip in the US. You can leave Boston or New York on one of dozens of 3 or 2.5 hour daily direct flights to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami in the morning and be on Calypso's deck by early afternoon, in the tropics. Of course, the winter season is most popular with temp's in the high 70's to low 80's for Nov-Mar with almost no rain (1-2 inches per month). But, we like the summer when its inexpensive and a less busy time to explore the Keys. The Keys have just half the summer rainfall that southern Florida (e.g., Miami) does. There are sea breezes and temp's stay in the mid-to-high 80's during the 'rainy' season from May through October, and showers occur in the mornings. That's why Floridians summer in the Keys given the great year-round weather. The marina is protected on all four sides so there are momentary gentle waves from passing boats–No, you won't get seasick! You will hear ropes creaking and the chimes and gongs of the rigging on nearby sailboats, which can put you to sleep. Please note that high winds and storms (they do occur and we can't plan for them) will cause much back-and-forth movement, bumping and creaking–it is a boat on the water–until the wind abates, but the docks will remain stable. Calypso is a brand new and available for your vacation bare boat charter when she's home at the Pilot House. We have local managers who live in the marina. Calypso stays on the dock; she cannot be moved from the marina without an owner/captain aboard. Your charter will be stationary, but still nautical and right on the water. There are plenty of local captains ready to take you out for the day, and then you can come home to your floating retreat. Try a unique boating experience for your next vacation!

    The Space*Let me take a moment to explain that ALL our lodgings are located on our beautiful 2 acre gated estate. Where I'm available at ALL times for your needs. My listings are of various designs our lodgings can offer your vacationing party for complete comfort. The ONLY lodging we offer as a shared bathroom is (Animators Suite and Sweet Suite when they are rented separately. However they can also be combined.) ALL OTHER Lodgings have their own private bathrooms.* Our gorgeous American Dream Coach is nestled in our lush tropical jungle garden and about 75 steps away from your very own private sandy beach with all the amenities of your very own private 2 acre gated estate. We do not live in a neighborhood so we're very secluded. Once on the estate the water front with the kayak, private sandy beach, snorkle gear, grills, FREE open wifi and so much more. I'm directly on the estate I love that we're not in a neighborhood :) Come and enjoy our well kept secret. Yes we do have buses. We are literally 1 1/2 hours from Key West. 1 hour from south beach 45 minutes to Everglades National Park. 5 mins from fishing areas, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and the famous Glass Bottom Boat, Bogey and Bacall African Queen, 7 minutes from Islamorada. The Fishing Capital of the World. Guest AccessOnce on the estate the water front with the kayak, private sandy beach, snorkle gear, grills, FREE open wifi and so much more. On a special note: We offer our guests more of an intimate boutique resort. We offer a huge back yard, 3 kayaks, snorkel gear & more. Please let me stress!...we're not a condo, were not a mobile home on a canal & we're not time shares that are built side by side. We actually own 25' of the bay bottom. So I hope I've conveyed how lovely and special our 2 acre private and GATED estate really is. Please email me if you ever desire more information. We love our home so much that we've built a safe living aquarium in our lagoon area. It's taken since 1970's we feed our fish and NO there are NO sharks or harmful sea-life. Just beautiful sites under the water. At the beach area is a zero entry and by the time you're in the lagoon area it's about 3.5 -4 feet. You have to swim out fairly far to get to 10 feet. We encourage everyone SAFETY first when you move past our estate perimeter and grounds. Always life jackets on when in Kayaks. Safety ;). So this is why we say the following. We're part of the Marine Sanctuary to save our lovely sea-life. Many guests come to visit and want to fish off the docks however we kindly ask you to join us in understanding we don't permit fishing because we want to have amazing sea-life for the next generations. And too... our county has created many new public fishing areas for visitors to the keys to fish. I also offer a wonderful list of guides for both deep sea and back country. Thank you for protecting our sea-life for future generations.
