What should we bring?

Packing is easy! You don't need much! Stocking Island has some pretty mild weather year-round - in the spring and summer, when it's a bit warmer - some shorts, tee-shirts and hats are recommended. In the fall and winter months, light long-sleeve shirts and long pants are useful - keep everything light.  Because we are in the tropics, rain can develop (and pass) pretty quickly - a light raincoat would be useful. Be sure to check the weather for your vacation time! I must say - The sun can be very intense, year-round, no matter the temperature outside. We HIGHLY recommend sunscreen, sunglasses and hats all the time - it's no fun to be sunburned on vacation!As for everything else:

  • Camera and batteries

  • Cell Phone and Charger (we have both AC/DC power)

  • Sunscreen

  • Bug Repellent (no open flames allowed, so leave the citronella candles at home)

  • A good book

Is there a place to rent kayaks or paddle boards?

Of course! We actually include a kayak with the rental! It's free! We want you to have a great adventure and a kayak is a great way to explore the more hidden parts of our waters (or to kayak into a local watering hole.)

How do I reserve?

Awesome!  It's easy -  just go on line and enter www.saintfrancisresort.com and reserve your House Boat accordingly. We accept Visa, Mastercard and Amex.


Can we bring animals on board?

 Sorry, no, animals are not allowed on board for any reason.
