"The Great Escape - the name says it all! We spent the month of April 2015 here and cannot say enough good things about it. We've already reserved for next April and can't wait. We have been coming to the Keys for over 15 years and think we have found a "home". This house had everything we could have asked for and more. The house is well furnished and nicely decorated. Pictures were totally accurate. Bette and Ski were great. If we had a question or needed anything, they were just a phone call away. For me, lots of time was spent on the screened in porch reading the day away. For my husband, accessibility to get out fishing was the best. He was able to easily get out fishing anytime he wanted. During our month stay, our children, grandchildren and my husband's parents were able to visit and the house is very accomodating for all ages. The weather was ideal which made our stay even more enjoyable since Michigan was still experiencing snow! We felt very comfortable at the Great Escape, so much so that when my husband had to return to Michigan for 5 days on business, I was completely comfortable being there by myself. Ski even came over after a long 12 hour work day to re-tie our boat while my husband was back in Michigan. Cannot say enough good things about this place. If you choose to rent, trust me, you will not be disappointed! Thanks Bette and Ski - already counting down the days until April 2016!"

"We have been coming to the lower keys for five years. We love this house! This is our third time staying there and we already have a deposit on next year. If you are a regular visitor to LTK or a newcomer you will be delighted with the accommodations at this wonderful islands house. Located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood, it has everything you need and nothing you don't!! The house is immaculate and delightfully decorated. The minute you walk in you feel comfortable. This is truly a place to relax and enjoy your vacation. The house is designed to minimize your chores and maximize your valuable free time. All of the appliances are very modern and top drawer. The kitchen has every thing you need to prepare all of your favorite dishes including all of the wonderful fresh seafood available like Key West pink shrimp and stone crab or your freshly caught snapper. The bedrooms have comfortable beds and plenty of closet space. The screen porch is perfect for catching the sunset while sipping your favorite cocktail or enjoying your morning coffee.
Recreational opportunities abound. We are fisherman and we love the great dock accommodations and the quick access to the outside. Also the free boat ramp is just a quick couple of turns down the canal so launching when we first arrive is a breeze. We fish every day we can. A bait freezer is a huge plus as we can have our ice and chum and bait ready to go. We love the filet station and wash down facilities. When the wind blows too hard to fish, we enjoy the nearby hiking in the Key Deer Preserve or on Sugarloaf on the old SR 4A. Key West and Marathon are just 25 miles away and we enjoy visiting there. If you like to bicycle you can safely peddle around the quiet neighborhood. Or if you want a more vigorous workout you can take a ride down Middle Torch Road to Dorn Road. We also love the birding, especially in the nearby lagoon.
There are a number of great restaurants locally. We especially enjoy the one that is within an easy walk to the house.
The owner is great. He is very attentive to any concerns and quick to respond. He has always refunded our security deposit promptly. He also has a wealth of fishing information!!!"

"We recently returned following a three week stay in paradise (Tiki Beach at Big Pine Key). We had a wonderful time and totally enjoyed the accommodations and facilities. It was pure heaven sitting on the beach or sitting by the pool. Relative to other reviews indicating that the pictures did not do the property justice, I think the pictures are all accurate, however what they don't convey is the wonder feel of the place. It is truly enchanting and provides an authentic old keys experience. Stanley, our high energy labradoodle, had the time of his life exploring the grounds and visiting with his new parrot friends. Mark my word, if we win the big lottery, we will be down to offer an outrageous amount of money for the property because it would be worth it. Thanks."

"Frankies house is the comfortable accommodating type of vacation home. I emphasize home because that is what it is!This was my 3rd year @ Big Pine Key and prior visits were @ a more lavish house( not a home)! Iam an Amputee and was comfortable in here in this ground level home. Im returning again and again and....."
