"We rented this house for the start of the regular lobster season. We are experienced snorkelers but total novices as far as lobstering goes. We were able to find our way to some great lobstering on the gulf side in 3 ft to 15ft of water and limited out by 11:30. A.M. We also did some offshore fishing and caught all the Mahi we wanted in a single half day trip. Cleaning the fish and lobster at the fish cleaning station on the dock was convenient as was the outdoor shower.
The free community ramp was close and easy to use. Easy access to the gulf and Atlantic. Sunset cruises out to the sandbar was another highlight as was snorkeling on Looe Reef. Plenty of room downstairs and out back for our 22ft boat, fishing and diving gear, bikes, etc.
The house was spacious and comfortable for the 5 of us. The restaurant in the front of the neighborhood had great food and was close enough to ride our bikes to or take the boat. I would definitely rent this house if I had the opportunity again."

BEST EVER!!! A definite 5-Star home and location!!
"We found The Great Escape on Big Pine Key after not finding an acceptable rental on Marathon where we have stayed for the previous 2 years. Wow, were we lucky!! Not only a fabulous home but incredible hosts who made sure we knew everything about the house, the canals and where to put in our boat and locations for snorkeling, fishing and eating!! Bette and Ski had the house PERFECT for us. Just like the other reviews stated, this house was beyond well-equipped with everything from linens, towels, kitchen equipment, porch and yard furnishing, etc. Did I mention the screened porch and easy-accessible dock. So easy to get on and off your boat!! We were here for the month of August and it was HOT, but you are in the Keys' and in the water so it was still great. Because of the warmer than normal water temps, we did have to deal with more jellies than we had seen in the past. We kept vinegar and Benedryl on the boat, just in case. Snorkeling was great in Looe Key and the sanctuary off Little Palm Island. So convenient to get to from the house. Yellow Tails and lobsters were more elusive, but we had a great time trying!! This is a great vacation rental for everyone!!!"

"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."
