Tucked away in the Florida Keys and ready for your next vacation weekend, the Big Bamboo, listed by Abby Drury on HomeAway, is a beautiful houseboat that's destined to become a favorite place to get away. Float away on this spacious houseboat and enjoy drinks on the roomy deck, meals al fresco and enough space to sleep five people.
Bamboo accents create a tropical feeling and whisk troubles away. Filled with features, such as a full-sized, fully loaded kitchen, bathroom and one bedroom, as well as additional sleeping space, this boat is ready for good times, relaxation and peaceful evenings. Relax in the salon, the living/sitting area of the houseboat. The sofa converts into a daybed for extra sleeping space.

Hardwood floors and a thatched bamboo roof create the feeling of being on an island retreat. The salon contains a sofa as well as chair, end tables and television set. Low-key decor is relaxed and casual.
This cozy dinette hides a secret: It converts into a twin sized bed! Use it during the day for meals and relaxation, and fold it out at night to provide extra sleeping space. There's also a second daybed in the dining area if required. If necessary, this spacious houseboat can sleep six people.
The galley kitchen comes complete with everything you need for a weekend stay. The kitchen features a stove, oven, refrigerator/freezer, blender and sink. If you prefer delicious grilled meals, head outside and use the propane grill.
Head down this sun-lit bamboo staircase to enter the master bedroom.
The master bedroom feels like a charming nook that's tucked away from the rest of the world. Enjoy the feel of the ocean underneath as you rock peacefully to sleep on this king-sized bed, which can also convert to two twin-sized beds.
The bathroom offers a toilet, shower and sink along with a pretty, shabby chic medicine cabinet.
This beautiful vanity and dressing area is the perfect spot to get ready for another day on the beach.
Meals and drinks on the deck while watching the sun set is the best way to end each day on this bamboo dreamboat.
