The Lil' Bamboo is a 38' ft. house boat for rent in a privately owned and operated marina/vacation property. A beach, tiki huts and bathhouse are within 20ft. The boat has a full size walk-around bed, a daybed thats larger than a twin and much longer for those who are tall, and a deluxe twin air mattress tucked in a little room under the helm, great for 'little ones". The bathhouse-restrooms are located directly behind the boat. **please read full description for additional info and fees.

We just had 4 glorious nights, the weather was perfect and the boat is nicely situated in the harbour. Everything was so convenient and the boat was really spacious and clean the only thing it could improve is better pots and pans for cooking. We can't wait to go back!!!

Moved to the keys in 2004 and love it. I love anything about the water, and really enjoy the island lifestyle, traded in my heels for flip-flops!
