Looking to bring my Skiff down to Miami for a weekend of fishing, any recommendations for a hotel/resort/VRBO etc to stay where the Skiff will be welcome and relatively secure?

Thanks guys

Honestly you guys want to stay as far south as possible. Homestead/Cutler Bay area(airbnb houses pretty cheap). From there you can access The Bay and also canals for Cocks without much traffic or ass pain. Let me know if you have any questions I'm down here.

I always point folks to the Homestead/Florida City area - since I drive through there every day I'm down at Flamingo... You're 25 minutes from the Homestead Bayfront ramps (accessing all of south Biscayne Bay and north Key Largo) you're only 18 to 20 miles from Key Largo by car -and the room rates are a lot cheaper than the Keys...(for night-time restaurants - daytime shopping) - and it's the jumping off place for the run down to Flamingo...

Matter of fact I frequently send out a listing of the places to stay down there to anyone that asks.... It has names, addresses and phone numbers that my customers have found to be okay (and range a bit from el cheapo up to Holiday Inn, Courtyard by Marriott, and Best Western... The Best Western has the best security of any of them with active patrolling security all night long so your boat sits easy...

All I need is an email request to [email protected] and you'll get the list by return email....

I've stayed there with my canoe on trailer and all was good, but canoe was stripped and empty,

Was thinking I would need to nearer for Peas.

Thanks

Yeah definitely don’t street park in the grove. That was one of the most stupid comments I’ve seen here to be honest. Anywhere south east of 72st and 67th ave air bnb would be so much better. And like others have said, fl city homestead but that gets close to some other sketchy neighborhoods. I have a house in Palmetto Bay but it’s rented out till the end of the year. I would recommend air b&b Palmetto Bay, pine crest, or anywhere around there. Avoid Kendall and anything west of us1
