Recent Big Pine Key reviews
Three weeks in paradise.
"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."

"Delightful find. Jorge is a wonderfully accommodating host. We have used VRBO on other occasions and must say this is without a doubt the nicest home we have rented. Already booked again for February 2016. Exactly as pictured and more! Amenities too numerous to mention. Extremely clean, beautifully decorated and maintained. Jorge's love of carpentry is exhibited throughout the home. The most elegant "fishing shack" we have ever been in. Loved the neighborhood. Perfect area for us. Bicycling, Kayaking, Fishing in a quiet nature preserve with all the comforts of home. Easy access to exploration of other areas in the Florida Keys. We love to cook and grill and were very happy with the beautiful kitchen. 3 of our children and their spouses joined us at intervals during our month stay. All have high pressure jobs and said they felt they had found a piece of heaven on earth during their visits. We have 2 small yorkies and could tell they much preferred the warmth and playing with the Key Deer to our Wisconsin snow and freezing temps! We would highly recommend the Ele Shack for a perfect stay in a quiet area of the Florida Keys."

"We spent March, 2015 at The Great Escape for our second year. My husband and I hosted several guests during the month; everyone loved it as much as we did.
We can not say enough about how CLEAN and well equipped this house is. Bette and Ski are very meticulous about every detail to make sure their renters are comfortable and have everything they need.
We did not have a boat this year, which was the only thing lacking. Spent a lot of time just chilling on the beautiful screened porch or lying in the sun on one of the comfortable chaise lounges downstairs. We took several trips to Key West, enjoyed Sombrero Beach in Marathon, many happy hours at Springers, Looe Key and The Wharf, weekend dinners and bands at Boondocks, bike rides to Bistro 31 for breakfast,(excellent), shopping at Winn Dixie, etc, This year we discovered Geiger RV Park restaurant and bar. Nice location on the water, a little off the beaten path 30 min. drive from Big Pine, 10 min. from there to Key West. We rode the bikes to the end of Ranger Avenue most evenings for sunsets. We met several neighbors, there who were also renters from the frozen North, It seems to be 'the' spot for sunsets.
The Great Escape is truly as advertised. We are not renting again next year, only because we already had other plans. Would not rule out a return in the future. It is THAT nice.
Thank you, Bette and Ski."

"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....."
