Recent Big Pine Key reviews
"We stayed from June 13th-20th. Due to some flight changes we didn't get in until quite late and had a bit of a hard time finding keys (our fault, not Nikhila's) but the cleaners showed up promptly and got us squared away. There were 9 of us, 7 adults and 2 little kids and the downstairs area was just a bit warm for a bunch of Scandahoovians but the upstairs area was large (great a/c) and well set up that it was not a big deal and we were able to get everybody situated. The freezer part of one of the most impressive fridge/freezers in captivity wasn't working but the small chest freezer was more than capable of accommodating everything. The weather was warm but the ESE winds at 10-15 that had been ongoing for some time made kayaking impossible and pushed a lot of weed up into the western shoreline of Spanish Harbor. That was of no surprise to us and should be an expectation of anyone going to the Keys. This was primarily a fishing trip-centric stay with trips out wide from Whale Harbor and into the back country from KW and the house was a perfect jump off spot for both. The proximity to Bahia-Honda (western beach the best) was great for the kids as well. The pool and the incredibly tame Key Deer visits (including a buck in full velvet) were a highlight for everybody. The fishing off the dock wasn't too shabby either considering the conditions and we came loaded for bear. Tons of pin fish available especially in the AM on sabiki rigs. Evening outgoing tides produced a lot of mangroves including several keepers (1/0 and smaller circles on 25-30 fluoro leaders with 2 oz running barrel sinkers, 12-20 lb main line mono). Lots of 2-3 foot nurse sharks. You will need to chum up pretty hard and de-weed a lot but fish are certainly there. I got wasted a few times by good sized 'cuda even fishing with wire and live baits. Same spot every time, cast directly toward the end of the dock on the left. About 3/4's of the way there seems to be some kind of gut or break in the weeds. I would recommend getting a cheap gaff and some gloves at the Marathon K-Mart to handle the toothy critters along with some cheap needle nosed pliers. I've stayed at a few VRBO places now in the Keys and Hawaii and I believe in terms of price, location and alignment of expectations and reality this is the best value for money I've experienced. If you are bringing or renting a boat in the 12-24' class then I can't think of a better place to use as your base of operations. Thank you Nikhila!!!"

"None of us knew what we were in for when we arrived to this beautiful oasis we now like to call our home away from home. The main house gives you an immediate feeling of island coziness overlooking the beautiful water, completely furnished and stocked with plenty of towels, packing light is a must. Pool is refreshing after basking in the sun from an all day fishing trip. Enjoy some surround sound music while the drinks are cold and the catch of the day is being fired up on the grill. There are two kayaks available to venture out on the water and watch the horse shoe crabs, blue crabs, star fish, hermit crabs & plenty of fish enjoying the warm water. The guest house gives you that nautical cottage type of feeling with plenty of room to sleep peacefully. Wifi access, television, washer and dryer in both homes & plenty of bedding. So pack light & enjoy a peaceful escape to a very secluded oasis."

"We had a fantastic 2 week vacation at Barry's Beach! Family and friends came in and we had 8 people in the house and it never felt crowded. Pool was great and location was perfect. Kiki's next door, close to Big Pine if you needed anything and very quiet and secluded feeling. This is a great house for a family getaway."

"Our family met on Big Pine Key for Christmas. This was the perfect house to rendezvous. The canal was perfect for swimming. We did not rent a boat but the dock and deep canal would make a boat docking easy. The neighbors were helpful. The owners were very quick to respond when the AC malfunctioned. There were plenty of towels and sheets. The kitchen is fully stocked: we always found what we needed for cooking. The neighborhood is great. Because we stayed over Christmas we were treated to the buggy parade. We would definitely rent this house again. The screened-in porch overlooking the canal was a dream: without it, the no-see-ums would have driven us indoors for the duration."
