Reviewed 23 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We spent two great weeks on the Sand Dollar, sleeping with the sliding glass door in the bedroom open. The boat rocked very gently and the breezes were wonderful - you'll sleep like a baby. This was perfect for two people, at least for an extended stay. Spacious living room, dining table for two, VERY compact kitchen, bathroom with flush toilet and hot shower, comfortable bed. We used the sleeping loft for storage, but it would have been fine for kids (or adults short term). Nice screened porch for watching activity in the marina; you can fish from the boat. Good Wi-Fi and TV. Manager Heidi is super-responsive to any requests.

There is a Winn Dixie market, liquor store, CVS, and an urgent care medical clinic within walking distance. Our small dog was welcome, although we had to lift him on/off the boat. FYI: the restaurant is "coming soon" and the fire pit operates on an erratic schedule.
