Docked in a luxury marina; Sans Souci is a 44' French sailing vessel. She has a storied history - built in France in 1983 and then sailed across the Atlantic to Key West, left again thru the Panama Canal to Hawaii, then Japan, Alaska and after a few more journeys - back to Key West.

Her most recent excitement was in 2017, when she sank in Hurricane Irma. And, on that note, PLEASE READ ALL THE BELOW BEFORE BOOKING!

Sans Souci is located on a dock in Stock Island Marina Village.

Please read all the below before booking. Sans Souci is scheduled for a haul-out and large refit later in 2021. If you think of her as more of a camping trip than a floating hotel you are setting your expectations correctly! The deck is being replaced later this year. That is the floor on top of the boat. It has a number of "ugly" spots and we are slowly removing hardware from it to prepare to haul the boat out of the water and repair her. Inside we are currently only accepting reservations for 2 guests. We recommend using only the aft walkaround cabin. There are rain leaks in the other areas of the boat that are slated to be repaired when we haul the boat out. The aft cabin does not have water leaks. This is an ocean going boat and all the machinery and plumbing is located directly beneath the living room floor. There is a large diesel engine in there and 200 gallons worth of diesel fuel tanks. Also, all the black water from the toilets goes into tanks below the floor. Some guests have noticed smells. Most have not. If you are sensitive to these possibilites then please reconsider booking. The toilets generally only smell for a few moments after they are flushed. This is because they are vented, as is required on boats, and it dissipates quickly.

Now that that is out of the way! Here's the rest of the info! Thank you!

Our family "rescued" Sans Souci after she sank in Hurricane Irma. She is the perfect cruising boat for our family of five and we have, and still are, bringing her back to life. In many ways she is still a work in progress, so, please set your expectations!

While Sans Souci is a good sized sailboat; she is a sailboat. She is full of what some people would call obstacles. We recommend that our guests be quite confident in their nimbleness. For example, when boarding the boat the dock will move; because it floats. When entering the boat you have to climb down a 5 step ladder. The boat may not be suitable for all guests.

We keep her very clean and comfortable but she is also rough around the edges. We have a long list of "to-dos" to bring Sans Souci back to her former glory and you may notice them during your stay. For example, some edges of the wood around the cabin have old water damage that we have not yet mitigated. There are scratches on many windows and most of the cushions need to be updated. The fridge is currently an electric cooler. In heavy tropical rains there are leaks around the boat that we haven't completely solved yet. We keep it clean and run air and water filters on the boat. If you are okay staying with these types of "to-dos" still left undone around you, while still in a clean and safe place, then Sans Souci is right for you!

She is a mid-sized sailboat with a nearly walk-around double bed aft cabin. The aft cabin has a standard window unit air conditioner and gets very cold, if desired. The aft cabin has an on-suite bathroom with a sink and toilet. It is a manual marine toilet and should only be used for late night emergencies. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING THE MARINA BATHROOM for most of your needs. The Marina bathrooms are cleaned hourly, private and nice. We provide a toiletry basket with fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner, and soap for you to use.

Forward their are 4 bunkbeds. Currently, Sans Souci is only available for four guests as we are repairing some leaks that in heavy rain cause the upper bunkbeds to get a little wet. Calling these beds twin size may be generous but they can easily sleep adults and are great for kids. There is air conditioning in the living room area to the boat and it bleeds into the bunk bed area. This keeps the area relatively cool, though, on hot nights in summer, it doesn't get to a super low temperature. Each bunk is equipped with its own fan to help.

Forward of the bunk bed rooms is another bathroom. This bathroom also has a marine toilet and a shower and a sink. Both are available for guests use while you are on board, but, again, the marina bathrooms are super great and we recommend them. That said, the boat shower is fantastic and has hot water.

Forward of the front bathroom is a utility room that has an all-in-one washer/dryer. This works great for cleaning clothes but not so great for drying them. You will have to hang clothes out on the sailboat lifelines for a bit to get them really dry - OR - you can use the marina's laundry facilities.

The main "living room" area of the boat includes a table with seating for up to 6. It has a desk. It has a small kitchen with a sink, an alchohol stove. The fridge is currently an electric cooler. There is also a TV and a number of DVD movies to watch.

On deck there is a cockpit area with a small table to enjoy the marina. Again, everything on this boat is over 35 years old and many parts show their age. But, she is clean and comfy and the cockpit is a great place to enjoy the marina.

Key West, Florida, SHBA

Sans Souci is located in Stock Island Marina Village and is a 3 minute walk from a great bar and pool. All the amenities of the exclusive Perry Hotel are available to our guests including the gym, pool, and laundry facilities.

If you are looking to charter a boat there are a number of fishing, snorkeling, scuba, and sailing charter boats at the marina.

Most of the other boats on this dock are privately owned yachts or other AirBNB type rentals.

This marina is located in Stock Island which is about 5 miles from downtown Key West. It is not in Old Town. There is a complimentary shuttle that runs every hour (from 9am to 8pm) to get downtown and back. You can also take a ride share or go on a motivated bike ride.

I am a middle school teacher at the Catholic school in Key West. I enjoy travelling mixed with adventure and love how AirBNBs often immerse you into the local scene much better than hotels.

Gjatë qëndrimit tënd

Sans Souci is self check in and we will not meet you at the boat. We do live in Key West though and are always available by phone or text or, if needed, we can come to the boat to assist with anything.
