Big Pine Key house description

Your search is over!
This house here has the largest private pool of all rentals in the lower Keys! It has 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 60 feet of dockage just steps from the pool. located in desireable Doctors arm neighborhood, this house is within walking distance to the famous No Name Pub. The boating canal is just 200 yards to open water and lets out into Bogie channel / spanish harbor channel, which is known for having good boating. The pool has a heater AND a chiller for those summer months. BEWARE some pools in the keys will reach temps in the 90s! You choose the temp for the pool! The spill over hot tub is also an excellent feature. This system design mixes the hot tub water with the pool water. When you are ready to heat the hot tub only, simply turn two valves and the hot tub stops spilling over and the heat / jets are directed to the hot tub only. This means that you are NEVER in the same old hot tub water which was used by other people ...........yuk! The pool and hot tub are serviced by a professional pool service on a weekly basis. There is a wooded lot next door which means you will see the famous Key deer come right onto this property. There is also lots of other wildlife to see which includes 100s of birds and giant iguanas ( some are over 4 feet long) just relax in the pool side hammock and you are bound to see wild life! Please note that the lower level bedroom does not match the quality of the upper level. There is a full bathroom on the ground / pool level. This means you do not need to go inside the house to use the bathroom when you are using the pool. The No Name Pub is within walking distance. Its a favorite for locals and tourists. Just a little further down the road from the Pub is the No Name Bridge. Its a great way to walk off those calories and look at the sea creatures. You never know what you will see from this low bridge, sharks, lobster, tarpon, turtles, crabs just to name a few. This house is a great way to enjoy the quaint and quiet town of Big Pine. If you need some hustle and bustle, take the 25 mile ride to Key West. There you can rent a scooter for the day and take in the many attractions that Key West has to offer. This house is also just minutes from the Famous Bahia Honda Bridge. There you can walk out on the last remaining section of the railroad which was wiped out by the major hurricane. If this Railroad was not bult, we might not have the highway that replaced it. The bahia honda beach is always listed as one of the top ten beaches in Florida. The bridge is the deepest of all the bridges which connect Florida city to Key West. This makes for some of the best fishing you can find in the world! There are more world record catches in the keys than anywhere else in the world. Its no wonder the In Fishermen TV crew stayed at this house to tape a tarpon show!! We lived at this house for five years and we love to boat / fish and lobster.
Please note that you need to be able to spin your boat in the canal to go in and out bow first. This means the maximum size boat is approximately 26 feet. This will vary slightly depending on your motor and motor bracket. The canal is 30 feet wide. There is wifi internet service at the house. There is 12.5% tax on the rate of your stay, 175 cleaning fee and 400 refundable security deposit. Wow..you made it to the bottom of all that writing! Thank you for looking! :)

sunset festival in Key West is a must see. Locals show off thier unique talants and the shows are free! Of course they ask for a well deserved tip at the end of the show. One guy gets regular house cats to jump through hoops of fire! I cant get my cat to use the litter box!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: This house was our home for 5 years. We moved back to Philadelphia in 2006 to raise our daighter around family and old friends. We look forward to our own trips to the house and hopefully we can spend much of our retirement there.

Why the Owner Chose Big Pine Key:
We bought this one as our primary residence and stayed for five great years. I picked this location because its very close to excellent fishing and lobstering, far enough from the highway to not hear the traffic, but close enough to the shopping at the Winn Dixie shopping center. This is the largest shopping center from marathon to Key West.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
LARGEST POOL of all rentals in the lower Keys. Hot tub, wildlife, boating with dockage in back of the house! heated OR chilled pool ..........your choice and much more !
