If you're a Floridian, chances are you've wanted to book yourself a weekend staycation in the Keys a time or two. Lodging can get expensive in paradise so splitting the cost with your BFF or bae is the way to go; you'd be surprised what seriously cool experiences that splitting costs can afford you — like camping the ocean in an adorable floating tiny house cabin in Key West.
This adorable Airbnb sits anchored in the Gulf of Mexico right in the Florida Keys offering a unique experience on the water. You'll have to ride your personal dinghy to and from the shore to get to your little private cabin on the water.
The little cabin is completely green friendly, running entirely on solar-power; you have a large fan to keep you cool at night and tvs for late-night lounging. Don't forget to pack the popcorn, snacks, and wine for the mini-fridge. You even have a kitchenette and bathroom with toilet & shower onboard.
If your boo doesn't mind being bunk bed buds, this would make a beautiful date escape — but is also perfect for a girls' BFF retreat, as the space comfortably sleeps twp on bunk bed nooks.
Given you're in The Keys though, you probably won't want to be inside much. You can enjoy that tropical breeze from your own private little deck, complete with sunchairs and an umbrella for a little shade. Bring a couple of poles to cast a line, then fry up your fish on the included barbeque while watching the sunset after.
The listing says that marine life is known to say hi during your stay, swimming up along the sides of the cabin. You're also close to Gilbert's Tiki Bar, the largest tiki bar in the Keys, as well as John Pennekamp State park — Florida's first undersea park, where the snorkeling, is top-notch. You can even see a sunken statue known as The Jesus of the Abyss there.
The price per night is comparable to a hotel at $110/night — that's only $55 each, and you get the added bonus of a unique experience of camping on the water among the ocean life in a slice of Florida Paradise.
