About the property

This house is located in Long Beach Estates, Big Pine Key, Florida. It is a private peninsula and has very quick access to ocean and flats fishing. You can fish or jump in and swim right off the sea wall because this house is not on a canal(no long canal rides, saves time and gas). Plus incredible sunsets every day !

This is a relaxing waterfront home that is on open water, great for boating and 10 minutes to the Open Ocean. It has a 100 foot seawall to accommodate a large boat. The water here is loaded with Snapper, just bait your hook and hold on. It comes with a fish cleaning station and outdoor shower.

The living room has a sleeper sofa plus a queen size futon. A Florida Room with comfortable furniture and incredible water view overlooks Coupon Bight. The Kitchen was remodeled 2003 with new appliances and countertop. New tile throughout the house in 2006.

Big Pine Key, Mile Marker 30, is a unique island because of its large-size and available fresh water. It is home to the famous Key Deer who are protected and can be seen roaming freely all over the island. Deep-sea, reef, or flats fishing are some of your many choices.

Divers and snorkelers will love Looe Key Reef and swimming at Bahia Honda State Park (voted America’s Best Beach) nearby at Mile Marker 36. Exciting Key West is only 30 minutes away. Marathon is 20 minutes. There is also a famous exclusive island called Little Palm Island that can be reached only by boat shuttle, where Sunday brunch is served.

About Cynthia

This is my former residence and my family and I use this house quite often for ourselves. It is very relaxing and fantastic star gazing too! Also, good area for Birding and we have seen Roseate Spoonbills a few times. Great kayaking area and house has 2 kayaks.

Cynthia purchased this house in 1995

Why Cynthia chose Big Pine Key

I used to own restaurant in the area , I was residing in the Keys for several years.

What makes this house unique

This house has the best boating access; easy to get to both open water of the Atlantic Ocean and also right by the flats fishing areas for big tarpon,bonefish and permit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just look at the photos and you will see how beautiful this location is. Quiet, secluded and comfortable yet close to town. This is the third different house we rented in the Lower Keys area in as many years and our favorite by far. If you love nature this is the place for you. Key Deer in the yard, birds roosting every evening in the mangroves across the water, boating and fishing in the back yard and beautiful sunsets. We also appreciated the fact there were no stairs!!! The owner was very cooperative and communication with her during initial arrangements was easy and pleasant. We plan to return.

Relaxing keys rental

  • 4 of 5

I loved the privacy of this home. There were neighbors but you couldn't see them. Never heard them either. All you can see is the open water in front of you and the mangroves way out in front of you. I had 6 deer every morning..some spent the night. There were also 11 iguanas every day. I did keep a fresh large bowl of water out for them. When sightseeing one day I noticed that all the fire hydrants were trickling fresh water and when I asked they said it was for the deer. We didn't rent a boat, just fished off the seawall out back. We caught a lot of snapper, few shark, a stingrays and several others. The kayaks were awesome to have. Just beautiful padding around all the mangroves. Loads of upside down jellyfish. Very private, quiet area. Key deer all along the roadway coming and going. House was good also. Pleasant landlord, never bothered us once, but if I contacted her for anything she was very prompt. As you can probably tell by my review, it is all about location and water to me. This is the best of both. There are also beautiful parrot fish and a large angel fish that live along the seawall. They LOVE oatmeal flakes.
