We had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful house for 6 weeks in January and February, 2010. The home is exactly as described, bright, open, airy, brand new, with open water views. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck outside the master bedroom taking in the view (with a nice cold beer!). We had some unseasonably cold weather the first 2 weeks in January, but enjoyed ourselves despite that! After enduring 2 feet of snow in Northwest Indiana we welcomed the change! Some highlights: Walking to the No Name Pub for pizza and chicken wings (we especially liked the carribean variety), Bahia Honda State Park, walking on the 7 mile bridge, the Key West Conch Train Tour,dinner at the Square Grouper and shopping at the very convenient Winn Dixie right on Big Pine. Day trips to Key West are easy from this home, and we went there several times. We especailly liked the sunset music cruise on the Fury catamaran out of Key West. And, no matter how many times we see them, we are always amazed at the Key Deer on Big Pine Key! The home is well stocked, with a new gas grill that we used frequently. We also brought our small boat and were able to launch it easily right on the property. Perhaps the nicest surprise is how wonderful Ann is. She is a gem! Easy to deal with and so friendly! Full of helpful suggestions on how to make your stay perfect. I recommend this home without hesitation! We will be back!

A PERFECT Getaway
A PERFECT Getaway
What a GREAT stay we had in this perfect home nestled in the perfect neighborhood. Ann was absolutely wonderful to work with and I consider myself having made a new friend. The neighbors are a delight and could not have been more accomodating with local information. The Key deer were an unexpected treat and we enjoyed seeing them daily as we walked to the No Name Bridge for fishing or the No Name Pub for pizza and beverages. The home's location could not have been better. We had everything we needed when we cooked "in" which we did often and we found it to be clean and extremely comfortable - just perfect. What more can we say other than we decided on the plane heading home that our first call once back in Richmond was to Ann to book this home for next year which we did. Thanks again for an amazing stay in your home, Ann.

My family and I had a wonderful visit to Big Pine Key. This house was very nice and comfortable with plenty of room and all the amenities of home. My husband loved that fact that the boat could be parked under his bedroom! We did plenty of fishing and even caught a few tarpon on back dock. The owner is great to deal with and the nieghbors were all very pleasant. We are already planning a trip back next year!

My family had a great mini reunion staying at this rental. We are Floridians, so we are very familiar with the Keys and the location of most places. We had a boat, so this was a great location to access fishing areas and Looe Key for snorkeling. Of course were also in the middle of the Key Deer Sanctuary, so they were very plentiful day and night. Everything is close by and convienent. Everything was as Ann said. All the rooms and beds were very comfortable, everything was clean and in good order. Thanks Ann for a great place !

Perfect fishing getaway!
Perfect fishing getaway!
Ann, your house was the perfect place for our much anticipated fishing trip. Myself and 5 cousins had more than enough room to relax and enjoy everything Big Pine had to offer. The house has more than enough space to accommodate all the boat you need to fish the waters around Big Pine. We were able to dock at 20' flats boat, a 22' bay boat, and a 27' center console without being cramped. The two smaller boats were even launched from the boat ramp on the property. You're just minutes away from all the inshore fishing you could ever want and only 15-20 minutes from the deep side of the reef. I certainly look forward to staying here again. Look forward to staying here again!

The six of us had a great time at Ann's place. The seas were so friendly that we went boating everyday. The full moon was beautiful on the deck in the evening. We caught lots of nice fish including yellow tail, grouper, dolphin and a big beautiful sailfish. Looe key diving was spectacular. A 300# jewfish practically attached his self to our boat and never left our side till we pulled anchor. The house was great and the boat dockage was excellent for two 25' boats. Ann, the owner is responsive and a joy to work with. Oh and thanks to Bernie across the street who was a wealth of knowledge about the area and made us feel welcome in the the neighborhood. :)

What a wonderful place! The house is so peaceful and beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. This place was a perfect place for our anniversary. With the house being centrally located, it was easy to make day trips to Key West or Bahia Honda State Park. We felt very much at home. I would recommend this place highly. I would love to make another trip. Thanks again Ann for all of your ideas for sightseeing and dining in the area. You have beautiful home. Thanks again for sharing it with us.

Can't wait till next year!!
Thank you Ann For allowing us to stay in your wonderful house, it was everything you said it would be! We arrived April 14th and right away we met some wonderful neighbors who were very helpful on letting us know what see and where to visit since it was our first time in the Florida Keys. We came for April vacation so our son who is 14 and niece who is 20 could come with us. They enjoyed the Key deer that would just come right up to us. They also enjoyed the Iguanas that were everywhere, my husband and I loved the sunrise the most it was nice to be able to just open the doors in the bedroom that open up to the deck. We can not wait to come back next year!! Thanks Again Ann Jenn

Just a note to let everyone know what a nice place this is! We were there for 2 weeks and had a blast! The house was just as described. Weather was great and we got to do plenty of fishing right off the back porch.Caught plenty of mangrove snapper to have a couple of fish frys! One of the plus of the house is the neighbors! They were some of the nicest people we have met. Everyone was friendly and try to help you any way they could! Ann was very nice and a pleasure to deal with! Hope to talk with you and get to come back next year! Thanks, Randy

Thank you Ann for providing such a great place. We have been comming to the keys for 15 years and have never stayed in such a wonderful location. This year we brought my elderly parents who have friends in the keys.........Even they commented on how well kept and nice this house was for a rental property. We were worried about having only one vehicle, but my Dad and husband were so close to "Strike Zone" Charters and No Name Bridge, it did'nt matter. On the one day we did venture down to Key West for the day and left "the guys" behind they walked over to the bridge...fished...then had lunch at No Name Pub. They were happy and so were we! We look forward to our next trip, and will most certainly try and stay on Baileys Lane.....Oh and did I mention everyone in the area.....Great, great people, by the end of the week we were walking with them. Just a wonderful neighborhood and a great house.....And the Key Deer are amazing!! Thanks Again, Barb & Tony Joyce & Bob

About the owner: My name is Ann, I have been in LOVE with the Florida Keys, since the day my then 10 year son and I stepped off a plane for vacation! That was 13 years ago... Had he not been in school at the time, and my husband having a practice in Pa., I would have never left Paradise!
Why the Owner Chose Big Pine Key:
After buying our first home in the Keys about 9 1/2 years ago, it was obvious I had to find something to keep me coming back! I had a coffee shop at the time in Pa., and decided to go for my real passion.. learning different home renovation skills.. and that is just what I did,in the Beautiful Florida Keys! First successful home was Key Largo, then 2 more in Big Pine. Then I found this house.. the one "nobody wanted to touch".. my dream! Almost 2 years later.. the shack was 1/2 torn down and rebulit into a beautiful home with cut in boat slip,extra dockage, bedroom over the water, boat ramp, great water access and what a view!! Resident tarpon just add to the charm! I JUST HAD TO SHARE THIS GEM!! It has been the most rewarding of all, EVERYONE loves, enjoys and raves about it! I am thrilled to show it off on VRBO!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Come and see all of this for yourself! YOU deserve it.. launch your boat right here, or at the ramp 3 mins away.. Dock it safely under your bed at night. Walk right out the door and fish! One house from the Channel..make left to the Gulf of Mexico, make a right to the Atlantic! Best snorkeling, diving,fishing anywhere in the Keys,, is right here! All the activity making you tired.. chill the wine and relax on the deck watching the others kayak,boat,fish and keep busy.. Head to beautiful Bahia Honda beach and state park.. 10 min ride in the car or GO by boat! Pack the cooler and head to Picnic Island (locals favorite) by boat, adjacent to Little Palm Island, in Pine Channel. Swim, sun and fun all on the water, meet new friends there too.. Key West has all the day/night life you would ever want (and more) great food,sunset party,shops and loads of activities, 30 mins by car or GO by boat! The choices are endless and at the end of the day.. this wonderful, quiet,clean house is perfect to "come back to" or just hang around!
