Sun Bay Haven's room was a great choice for me. I chose to spend my days scuba diving and this fit my needs perfectly. The bed was sooo comfortable, the shower had hot hot water and I didn't have to eat all my meals out .... there was a mini fridge, toaster oven, microwave and coffeepot. I also had wi-fi access. At the end of the day I could either go down to the beach, the pier or out on the dock outside my room and enjoy a glass of wine. For someone traveling alone or with a guest this is top choice.

Perfect Piece of Paradise

Our family was looking for an unique travel experience and we certainly found it at the Silver Moon Houseboat. This place had everything we hoped for and ended up being even better than we expected. We've always stayed at hotels and I can honestly say, we were missing out on finding a peice of paradise. We found gracious hosts that make you feel so welcome, plenty of activities to keep you busy and the perfect spot that is conveniently located to everything you need during your stay. It was a perfect piece of paradise for the four of us. Manatees swimming by every day, kayaking around the mangroves, beautiful private beach and crystal clear water! This will always be our first choice for a fun getaway in the Florida Keys. This place truly has it all!

Cute minature home away from home on a wonderful clear canal very close to the Bay, it is adorable! It's on a very quiet ? We would give it a "ten" rating and can't wait to return. We have stayed at several places in Florida and find this the very best.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Hey There!
It's been a while. Thanks so much for all your hospitality! We had a very pleasant stay. Renting both the bay's Sun Bay and the houseboat worked great for us.

We (family of four) had a fantastic time on the houseboat - swam with the manatees (the kids had names for them all), kayaked through the canals and into the bay. Chanoch and Giana were wonderful hosts and looked after us very well with lots of information about what to do and where to go locally. The houseboat was clean, comfortable and in good shape. We highly recommend staying on the houseboat for a unique Florida Keys holiday experience.

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic vacation staying in Best Sun Bay-Getaway. The room was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed playing with the manatees and relaxing in the sun:) Chanoch & Giana were extremely hospitable, we couldn't have asked for better hosts and conversation. We would definitely stay here again!

Thank you for such a great vacation! The manatee were wonderful.
