Verified reviews from our guests that stayed at the Manatee Queen haven, Key Largo:
SARA SAID: Absolutely recommend! Stayed in the Manatee Queen while visiting the Keys with my parents, and we could not have loved the place more! The house is meticulously clean, well-equipped and incredibly charming. Works ideal for a couple, but could also (as with us) host an extra person on the futon in the living room. Surroundings are perfect to get into the relaxed lifestyle of the Keys, still with plenty of things to do both locally (swim with Manatees if you dare, chill at the beach, kayak or bike) and for daily excursions (Key West, South Everglades, John Pennekamp). We unfortunately never got to meet Chanoch (who was traveling at the time) but received all the attention and care one could possibly ask from a host through the lovely Giana! We were in fact made so comfortable that we not only prolonged our stay with 2 nights, my parents also chose to go back for another 4 nights after seeing me off in Miami/F Lauderdale! Also, without having lived in either of them, the two houseboats in more or less the same place are both incredibly well-situated and charming/alternative ways to experience living in the Keys! Make a reservation, you won't regret it!
MAT SAID: So we only had like a 36 hour window for a quick vacation, I flew in from Chicago and picked up my girlfriend in Sarasota and we drove right to this great little get away. Our biggest regret was not enough time to enjoy all the area had to offer. It's a perfect place to take little day trips from and return to.That being said, we knew we only had a short time so our goal was to lay back and take it easy and man was this the absolute perfect place for that! Giana and Chanoch were so helpful with our planning and Francisco was AMAZING about showing us around and giving us tips for enjoying the place while we were there. We used the bikes for a nice day ride, then snorkeled off the dock and saw schools of fish! We could have gone swimming with the Manatee but didn't learn the secret to get him to come visit until we were done swimming. He DID visit however and we got lots of great photos! There were kayaks ready for our use, but the waves were uncharacteristically choppy so we opted out. The place was clean. Cheerful. Lots of room and a cute little kitchen and out door garden spot for our morning coffee. We had an amazing dinner at the Pilot House nearby as well as great homemade Ice Cream from Mr. C's and an outstanding Breakfast at Mrs. Mac's which included an amazing slice of Key Lime Pie. We will certainly be returning for a longer stay!

Reviews of this property
Great, peaceful accommodation along the canals. We liked it wonderful. There is enough space in the house. Kitchen is well equipped. Oil, spices, aluminum foil etc were of the previous tenant (?) Still exists. Terrace is shared with the houseboat.
Goods on "private beach", the bikes and kayaks are used. The manatees we have also seen. Gina and Chanoch we only met briefly, as they are out of town in the evening, but they were very attentive. The list of Miles venues with restaurant recommendations, shopping, etc was very helpful.
We would book immediately again. TOP !!!!
Tolle, ruhige Unterkunft an den Kanälen. Uns hat es wunderbar gefallen. Es ist genügend Platz im Haus. Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Öl, Gewürze, Alufolie etc waren von Vormieter (?) noch vorhanden. Terasse wird mit dem Hausboot geteilt.
Waren am "Privatstrand", haben die Fahrräder und Kajaks benutzt. Die Seekühe haben wir auch gesehen. Gina und Chanoch haben wir nur kurz kennengelernt, da sie am Abend verreist sind, die waren aber sehr aufmerksam. Die Liste der Miles-Locations mit Restaurant-empfehlungen, Geschäften, etc war sehr hilfreich.
Wir würden sofort wieder buchen. TOP !!!!
Reviews for this host's other properties
Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful house in a very nice neighborhood. The rooms are very comfortable and offer everything you need. Great location. Only a short walk to the subway, supermarket and nice restaurants.The hosts Giana, Chanoch and Luigi (sweet dog) made us feel very welcome. We had a great stay and would highly recommend Emerson house. Kerstin and family, Germany
Excellent! It couldn't have been better! This house though it is such a wonderful nice hideaway, so that we were thinking about not telling you, so that we can come back as soon as possible to stay for a month
A very welcoming host who will do everything to make you comfortable. Giana will show you his boat Key Largo and even manatees are decided. Sleeping on a boat is an experience especially near the Everglades!
Une hôte très accueillante qui fera tout pour que vous soyez à l'aise. Giana vous fera découvrir son bateau, Key Largo et même les lamantins s'ils sont décidés. Dormir sur un bateau est une expérience à vivre surtout à proximité des Everglades !!
