Big Pine Key house description
We'd like to share our home with you. Experience the uniqueness of the Lower Keys while staying in a spacious, two-bedroom, private home on Big Pine Key, home of the famous and rare Key Deer - tiny white-tail deer that roam the unspoiled tropical wilderness. They will come right up to you in our driveway and lick your hand. Please stick to the speed limit and remember it is illegal to feed the deer. You undoubtedly will also encounter other wildlife at our house, such as egrets, iguanas, crabs and various fish.
Far from being overcrowded, the pace of life on Big Pine Key is casual and relaxed.
We have 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, plus additional sleep accommodations in the sunroom. The sun room has windows on 3 sides looking out onto the ocean, a DVD player, a flat screen TV. Master bedroom has a king size bed and guest room has 2 twin beds. Hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings, lots of windows looking over the water and an open floorplan make this our dream home. We also have 2 kayaks at the house for your use.
While we have some toiletries and pantry items for our personal use, please plan on supplying your own.
Enjoy fabulous fishing, boating, diving, snorkeling, or just relaxing. With a covered boat slip on the canal, only yards to ocean and back country access for excellent fishing, spectacular bird watching, and peaceful sea kayaking. Very nearby are boat and jet-ski rentals, restaurants, Sombrero Beach, and Bahia Honda State Park, voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the USA. Only 30 minutes to Key West and just a short distance to Looe Key reef, one of the best diving areas in North America. See http://www.fla-keys.com/lowerkeys/ and look at our links page for additional info. FYI: Lobster Season is the last week of July through the end of March.
Beautiful home directly on the water, perfect for boating with easy access to Atlantic or Gulf. We have WiFi and cable TV, but no land line phone. Amazing sunrises in the sunroom or from the deck. This home offers a wonderful opportunity for relaxation & enjoyment of many water sports and activities in the beautiful, tropical FL Keys.
For transportation, please note we are 2.5 hours by car from the Miami Airport and 27 miles from the Key West Airport.
Depending on availability, we also have a 1 BR 1 Bath downstairs apartment that sleeps 3.
