Big Pine Key house description

Very private, charming, Atlantic oceanfront house directly on beach. The most beautiful, unspoiled spot in the Keys. Many coconut palms and native trees. One-hundred-sixty-five foot dock with chickee and mooring whips for flats boat. 2 Kayaks and 4 bikes included. Adjacent to Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge, on a Turtle nesting beach with Key Deer and many birds. Swim off the dock in the reef protected, calm water or just sit on the dock under the chickee and enjoy the incredible view and ocean breeze. Home is very tropical and open with porches, french doors, ceiling fans, and a wood burning fireplace. DirecTV, tivo, DVD players for 2 high def TV's, wireless internet, Long Beach Road is a dead-end road with no traffic and is great for walking and biking.

Great flats fishing: tarpon, bonefish, permit, snapper, grouper. Offshore: sailfish, wahoo, dolphin. Fabulous snorkeling and diving at near by patch reefs, Looe Key, and Little Palm Island. Look for lobster and stone crabs. Big Pine Shoal, reef 6 miles out. Back Country waters easily accessible from Spanish Channel. Boat rentals at end of Long Beach.. Bahai Honda State Park with its famous beach is 3 miles away.

A quiet, tropical paradise yet close enough to drive to Key West, with its restaurants, nightlife, and Historic Old Town, for a fun evening out.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: We are both attorneys and met in law school at Florida State University. We live in Coral Gables, FL which is about 3 hours from our vacation home on Big Pine Key. We first went to Key West on our honeymoon. When our two sons were young we rented vacation houses all over the island chain for a month or two every summer. Our boys learned to swim and dive here and loved the fishing and boating and still do. We always enjoyed our stays in the Keys and looked for a house to buy for several years. We found our dream home in 1993 and have never had a boring day there.

                      Why the Owner Chose Big Pine Key:
                      Because we had rented vacation homes througout the Keys we knew what each area had to offer. We prefered oceanside rather than gulfside because the ocean breeze keeps it much cooler. We wanted a home on a secluded beach directly on the ocean and with a dock where we could keep our boat. Not an easy combination to find. We didn't want to live in Key West but to be near enough so we could spend a day or evening there and have a short drive home. Key West is always fun and interesting and we love the historic archtecture. When we found Long Beach we thought is was perfect and made an offer the first day we saw our house. We have had it now for 16 years and still can't believe how lucky we are whenever we are there.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We swim, boat, fish ,kayak, look for lobster---or just relax under the chikee at the end of the 165' dock with underwater light, or lie in the hammock on the beach and watch the deer and water birds come and go. You can swim and fish right off the dock. The reef is 6 miles out and Looe Key is the best snorkeling destination in the Keys. The back country islands await on the other side of No Name Bridge. Long Beach Road is great for walking or biking, and canoeing in Coupon Bight just across the road from our house is always eventful. You can kayak in the ocean as the water is protected by the reef and is often calm. Coupon Bight is a stone's through away. The beach at nearby Bahia Honda State Park is long and wide and always fun to explore. Then there is Key West. It is only a 30 min. drive and the drive on the Overseas Highway is beautiful. There are excellent restaurants, museums, art galleries, and of course lots of bars on Duval St. Its always crowded and fun but you will be glad to get back to the tranquility of your private, beachside home.
