Big Pine Key house description

Welcome to the Great Escape! Get away from it all, and yet, be in the midst of it all, in a location that offers everything needed for that perfect Florida Keys vacation (without sacrificing all the comforts of home).

The Great Escape is located in Pine Channel Estates, near mile-marker 29 of US-1, Big Pine Key, close to shopping and many fine restaurants. The home is situated on a very clean canal, offering access, via Pine Channel, to both the Atlantic Ocean for great fishing, boating, snorkeling, and diving and the Gulf of Mexico for back country fishing and kayaking.

Big Pine Key is home to the Key Deer and is only a 30-minute drive to Key West and a 20-minute drive to Marathon. Bahia Honda State Park, with its famous white sand beach is less than 10 minutes away. Travel by boat to the Looe Key Sanctuary for a unique day of snorkeling at a living coral reef.

The Great Escape is a very spacious, immaculate, three bedroom, three full bath, private home with central air. It is decorated in a relaxing, classy-tropical decor. The home will accommodate up to eight guests. No smoking or pets are allowed.

The great room includes a well-equipped kitchen, dining room with a large table and living room with plenty of seating for watching your favorite programs and sports on the flat-screen satellite TV (DIRECTV). Wireless Internet is provided. Three sliding glass doors lead out onto a large screened-in porch (southern exposure) with comfortable patio furniture for relaxing, eating, reading, or napping on the chaise lounge. Most likely, you will enjoy eating all your meals and watching TV from out there.

The master and guest bedrooms on the upper floor both have king-size beds and full bathrooms. All linens and towels are provided, as well as a front-loading washer and dryer.

On the ground floor, adjacent to the covered patio is the entrance to the guest bedroom suite. The suite has a queen-size bed, a full bath, TV, and a small refrigerator. It also has a Futon that can be used as an extra bed, or for relaxing and watching TV.

The glass sliding door from the guest bedroom suite opens to the covered patio that leads to the dock and canal. It is a great place to sit on a chaise lounge with your morning coffee. There is plenty of patio furniture and a picnic table for having an evening barbecue with friends. A gas grill is also provided.

Just a few steps from the house is the concrete dock with a fish cleaning table. The tiled, step-down patio area of the dock includes an outdoor shower and swim ladder. It is a great place to relax and get that beautiful Keys tan. The canal is very clean and is perfect for swimming. With 75’ of dock there is ample space to tie up your boat so it will be close and ready for you to hop aboard at a moment’s notice. Go fish, play, or take an evening cruise to watch our beautiful Keys sunsets.

The beautifully landscaped, fenced-in yard has garden pathways through the many tropical plants and trees. Sit and relax on one of the three benches. It’ll make you feel like you are at your own private resort.

Under the house, there is protected parking for your vehicle and a storage area for all of your fishing and snorkeling equipment. Also included is a chest freezer for bait and extras (And all that fish you will be catching!). Four bicycles, two kayaks, and a paddle boat are also included, free of charge, for your use.

“Better than a 5-star hotel” wrote one of our guests. Another guest wrote, 'Wow, what an amazing place. I hate to leave such a rousing tribute only because I don't want the place to fill up for when we want it next year'. Read more of what they, and some of our other guests, had to say about the Great Escape in the “Reviews” section.

We take great pride in our vacation home, and know that you will be pleasantly surprised at how comfortable, relaxing, well maintained, and exceptionally clean it is. The home is supplied with everything you will need to make your stay enjoyable.

We are confident that you will be staying in the perfect home for a great Keys vacation and are more than happy to help in any way to assure you of that. If you have any questions, please call or e-mail us at any time.

Activities mentioned below are just a sample of the many that the beautiful Florida Keys has to offer. Get out and explore and you will fill your days with fun in the sun.
