Accommodation Description

  • Private Barbecue
This extraordinary, floating barrel cabin rental is perfect for those looking for a unique and adventurous stay in Key Largo, Florida. Accommodating up to two guests, guests will find themselves situated on Blackwater Sound at a 15-minute dinghy ride from the marina, restaurants, and more.

The cabin is made of red cedar, which has a natural aroma that is very relaxing to all who stay here, and once inside, guests will see the panoramic window that looks out over the water, which guests can use to enjoy watching the area's surroundings from the comfort of the queen-size bed. The private bathroom aboard the floating cabin includes a chemical toilet and an outdoor shower. For those who prefer a standard bathroom, there is a toilet and a password-protected indoor shower at the marina.

At the accommodation, there is also a tiki bar, which comes with a Yeti cooler, all necessary kitchenware (plates, bowls, cups, glasses, cleaning supplies, and more), and a French press. Next to the tiki bar, there is a sink made from a whiskey barrel, which adds to the cabin's Florida charm. Guests will have all basic necessities included with the accommodation, such as linens, towels, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Other amenities include a flat-screen television with a DVD player, an exhaust fan, a bedside fan, and a bug screen.

Outside, guests will find an inviting private deck where they can enjoy stunning sunsets and watch for dolphins. Guests can throw the day's fresh catch onto the Coleman propane barbecue and relax in one of two lounge chairs with an overhead parasol. Guests will have full use of a solar-powered dinghy to reach the beach.

Glampers are asked to be conscious of the amount of electricity they use, as this cabin is powered entirely by green energy. The hosts ask that guests do not use appliance that take lots of energy, such as hair dryers, because otherwise, they will quickly use all of the store power up, and they will have to wait for the batteries to recharge.
