Recent Big Pine Key reviews
"The house was much nicer than the photo's shown on the website. The interior was very clean, comfortable, well appointed and felt like home. The beds were all new and comfortable, the downstairs bedroom provides privacy and is fully self contained with it's own A/C system. The exterior of the house was very well kept and maintained.
The storage room downstairs was useful to store fishing tackle, coolers and the additional "bait/fish" freezer came in handy as we caught lots of fish. The neighborhood was very quiet, yet close enough to the grocery store and local shops to provide easy re-supply for the essentials of any vacation, food, beer & ice. Although we ate at The No Name Pub and Boondocks alot! The pizza is always great at the Pub and the live music & food was always great at Boondocks. The canal was always clean and clear, with easy access to the gulf side bay area. Fuel and ramp facilities are available at Dolphin Marina on Little Torch Key just across the small bay heading into the Atlantic.
In about 4-5 minutes of idle time through the canal, you were in open water. The canal is deep and the approaching channel is deep enough for larger boats and the canal is wide enough to turn around without alot of hassel. We caught tarpon, snapper, sharks and barracuda in the bay within 5 minutes of the house. It is only a 15 minute ride into the Atlantic side around Little Palm Island resort. Plenty of fine bottom fishing (snapper & grouper) is available 1-mile offshore of that resort, or if you go 5 miles out, the trolling can heat up in a hurry. Bahia Honda bridge is about a 20-30 ride, depending upon conditions.
One of our favorite spots after returning to the house was to sit on the couches downstairs and enjoy a cold beer before cleaning fish. Although, sometimes the couch was almost too comfortable! Over the past 17 years of renting several homes in BPK, I must say this is one of the best I have rented. We will definitely keep it in mind for our next trip."

"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 enjoyed our stay! We particularly appreciated the attention to details of the interior and furnishing of the dwelling. Clean, modernized, granite counters, wood floors and a lovely screened in second level deck. The first level was a large patio with pavers and a large gas grill. Kayaks, Bikes and a beautiful dock were some of the amenities enjoyed out of doors. The owners were attentive and called to check on things. We were able to get instructions to the operation of the gas grill first hand. We also left belongings behind and they were mailed to us."
