***Floating Tiny Home for Adventurous Campers***
Welcome aboard “The Happy Crabby” floating tiny home in Key Largo, as seen in COASTAL LIVING! What can we say, there is nothing like a stay on this tiny slice of paradise! This floating home is a magnet for stunning sunset/sunrise views from your porch. Fish, swim off the platform or just spend the day lounging in the Florida sun.
PLEASE read ALL THE WAY THROUGH to ensure you have a COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING of what this outdoor adventure entails!

Le logement
As you relax under your umbrella with a cold drink in hand, watch as dolphins, manatees and other indigenous wildlife grace you with their presence. A gas BBQ is provided to help you cook up that catch of the day and we have provided utensils to make your floating stay as convenient as possible.

Enjoy the top window views from your loft bed in the morning and in the evening as you star gaze. Inside this quaint and meticulously laid out tiny home, you will find a top of the line cooler to keep your drinks and food cold and ready at all times. There is a comfortable futon couch for kicking up your feet on the rare occasion you want to be inside during your stay in the tropics, it also unfolds to be a second bed. Appreciate the neatly organized sitting area, kitchen and wet bath (complete with air temperature shower and chemical toilet), flat screen TV, DVD player (there is no antenna on the water so it plays DVDs only, we don’t store any movies onboard so please bring your favourites) and large fan to keep you cool at night and during the day. The main indoor hot water shower and indoor bathroom is run by the marina onshore where you dock your kayak and park your vehicle.

All our units come with a tandem kayak (weight limit 400lbs) to transport you in and out to your unit. The paddle out from our little inlet is only 2-3 minutes if you are taking your time. Using a kayak allows you to paddle back and forth after dark and also stay during more windy weather.

We also have private 9.4ft water tender dinghies that can be rented for $50/day for your stay (must be docked at the marina 30 minutes before sundown). These are set up with 2018 Suzuki or Yamaha motors, ranging from 2.5-4hp. There is a weight requirement due to the size of our tenders, all cargo (humans and baggage) cannot exceed 450 pounds. Our host can show you the dinghy, gives you a run down of the safety equipment and how to run the motor. These tenders CANNOT be used after sundown, which is why all guests are given a complimentary kayak with their rental. If you wish to have a tender added to your stay please let us know and we will prepare it for you. This cost can be paid cash at check in to our host, a receipt will be given. The dinghy boats take a different, longer route to the units and some days the wind does not allow this to safely take place. It is up to the discretion of our local host if the tenders are rentable day by day due to the forecasted weather.

Nearby are local hotpots like Blackwater Siren and Gilbert’s, two places that have great food, drinks and live entertainment. You can pull up at Gilbert’s Tiki Bar, which is the largest in the Florida Keys, and relax in a lounge chair on the groomed beach. You will find jet ski, kayak and other water sport rentals available to you on the beach as well. Other attractions like John Pennekamp State Park, with some of the best snorkelling in the world, are also only a short drive down the road from your stay.

Our wonderful online and on location hosts will be in touch with you from booking onwards and will be there at the marina to greet you, show you to your kayak, explain your cabin and then leave you to relax! Check in must happen at the pre arranged times (230 or 4), so please arrange to arrive early and grab a bite to eat or cold drink at the Blackwater Siren while you wait.

On site, secured parking (please bring $10/day cash for the marina parking), onshore bathrooms and shower is also available at the marina dock where you will dock your kayak while onshore. “The Happy Crabby” is a completely green unit running on solar power, making it a friend to the Florida Keys and a treasure to this beautiful area. Please note that this means you must be conscious of your power usage. Please no appliances that pull large energy loads, like hair dryers etc, or you will quickly use up the stored power and have to wait for the batteries to recharge.

Come experience the Florida Keys in the way it deserves to be experienced. On the water!

DISCLAIMER:

This is an outdoor experience reserved for camping, outdoors, adventurous people. Please do not book this if you cannot be flexible with weather, wildlife or the water. You are on the water and on a still night there may be mosquitos so please come prepared with your choice of bug repellant.

As a reminder, like camping, there is no AC. We do offer an exhaust fan, bedside fan and a bug screen so you can keep your door open during the night. Seeing as you are in the Keys you most likely won't be spending your days in doors, so just bring light sleeping attire to keep you cool.

We do not offer full refunds if you cannot make it due to travel delays, bad weather or user error with the units.

Please pack light! You reach your unit with a tandem kayak which can fit a bag/cooler between your legs. Kristy can help bring out some items at your check in, but you would need to bring those items back in at self check out. There is also minimal storage on board. We advise that if you are staying in the area for awhile that you pack an overnight bag to take while you campout on our units.

Guests must be relatively fit to be able to paddle out, climb the swim ladder onto the unit and spend their vacation in a smaller area.

Check in times are 230 and 4! We run our check in like a boat charter as it takes about 30 min for check in and we need to ensure everyone gets settled before sundown. Our on location host will be in touch with you prior to your arrival to confirm and we ask that you respect her time and arrive within the alotted time. There will be a fee if she has to return to the marina after hours to check you in. Absolutely NO CHECK INS AFTER SUNDOWN. If significant travel delays happen you will need to find other accommodation for the night as we cannot check in a guest after dark.

Best plan is to aim to arrive early, enjoy the area, connect with our host and she can often check in guests earlier if possible :)

Thank you for reading this in its entirety and considering the Happy Crabby for your unique getaway experience! Please reach out if you have any questions :)

Autres points à prendre en note
We wanted to explain our cleaning fee. Yes, we do understand it is higher than most around the area. Our housekeeper has to haul jugs of water to the units on a dinghy, along with linens and other cleaning supplies, she removes and empties the toilets and requires the extra time to boat to and from all the units.
It is quite different than a land clean and we appreciate the very physical tasks that come with cleaning our units. Therefore we always want to be upfront with our guests. That fee goes entirely to our housekeeper. We are not trying to raise the accommodation fee by hiding it in the cleaning fee. It all goes directly to her and we appreciate the hard work she does attending to our units :)
We truly appreciate when our guests leave the unit tidy, as does our lovely housekeeper :) Thank you for your understanding, and we cannot wait to host you on your amazing floating vacation!
