Houseboat summary

This 60-foot floating condo is docked at the Lake Monroe Marina, blocks from Historic downtown Sanford, Florida.  Walk to town.  Jog or bike the 3-mile "trail" along the St. John River.  Fish off the dock.  Sun yourself on the upstairs deck.  Catch a show at the refurbished Wayne Densch Theater.  Like to eat?  We have German, Belgium, Irish, Greek, Italian, Korean, New Orleans-style, barbeque, and soul food - to name a few - restaurants, all within walking distance.  There are many microbreweries, a few wine bars, and a craft cocktail bar or two.  Want something non-alcoholic?  How about a smoothie or visit the juice bar.  See how marshmallows are made and grab a delicious ice cream cone.  Enough about food. Learn to sail.  Visit the Sanford Museum, the Welcome Center, or Public Library.  Check out original folk art.  Take in the natural beauty of nearby Blue Springs State Park, where manatees "winter".  Rent a canoe or kayak.   Yes, even Disney is only 40 minutes away.  

Houseboat description

Why stay by the water when you can stay on the water? Especially when you can stay on the water in style.

Luxury lower deck

The kitchen is well appointed and includes a full-size stove and refrigerator, ice maker, Keurig, microwave, and toaster oven. Both bedrooms have queen-sized beds.  The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a garden tub. The guest bedroom has access to the half-bath.  In the living room you find a sleeper sofa from which to watch the 52-inch flat screen TV.  The Yamaha stereo system has speakers in all rooms which can be turned on or off. 

Superb top deck

It's great to have a comfortable lower deck but, to be honest, the top deck is where most of our guests enjoy spending their time.  The top deck is open air but covered and has adjustable sun shades on the sides.   

The summer kitchen has a stainless steel grill, mini-fridge with ice-maker, and a sink.  There is a table and four chairs for dining al fresco.  Watch TV or catch a nap on the curvy couch or work on your tan in the open sunning area.  

For entertainment on rainy days, there are DVD's, CD's, games, cards, and books.

We bought the houseboat seven years ago as a weekend getaway. We fell in love with the area and moved to Central Florida four years ago. That's when we decided to become boateliers and share our enthusiasm for life on the water with others. We have met some terrific people over these past few years and have thoroughly enjoyed being hosts. Let us introduce you to Sanford. We think you will love the experience as much as we do.

    Great place, great fishing

    My wife and I have spend a few wonderful days on this great houseboat. Not only we enjoyed the fantastic boat itself, but also the amazing bass fishing on Lake Monroe. I took my hoby kayak and had an amazing time casting for those crazy fish out there. Loved the grill on the top deck by the way, great usp!\r\n\r\nLoved it and will absolutely be back. \r\n\r\nTight lines,\r\n\r\nMike
