Property description

Walk into your secluded paradise in the beautiful Lower Keys. Our private waterfront home is located in the Port Pine Heights area of Big Pine Key surrounded by the Key Deer Sanctuary. It is a custom built spacious 2/2, fully updated inside and out. The home is tropically decorated and equipped with everything you need for a memorable fishing, diving or simply relaxing vacation.

The house is located at the end of the street, with a corner canal front lot and no neighbors near the house. Across one canal is the Key Deer Preserve and across the other canal are a few very quiet neighbors. Our waterway is half way between the Back Country and the open Atlantic. Flats fishing, reef fishing, snorkeling and diving are only a short boat ride away from our dock. No boat?.... fish for Mangrove Snappers right in our crystal clear canal.

Looe Key, one of the only living reefs in the US, is nearby and a series of patch reefs are practically in your back yard. The award winning Bahia Honda Beach is just a few miles away. Spend the day on the beach or swimming and diving in the clear warm waters of the Keys. 1/2 mile down the road is the Blue Hole a fresh water pond which is part of the Key Deer Preserve. The Port Heights neighborhood is 4.5 miles from the Overseas Highway and most all of the road to the neighborhood is undeveloped.

Bicycle or kayak around the streets or waterways of the quiet neighborhood. Relax overlooking the water on the second floor balcony patio. Enjoy the open water sunsets which are just a few blocks away and after dark the spectacular star and meteor show will surely amaze you.

Looking for something more exciting? Grab the best pizza at the world famous, historic No Name Pub just down the street; or Looe Key and Boomers Tiki bars are a short drive away on Ramrod Key. Take your boat to Kiki's Sandbar Restaurant on Pine Channel. It is only a 30 minute ride to Key West for dining, dancing, and live music. Historic Old Town Key West offers up nightly sunset celebrations, art, shopping, theatre and casual to fine dining all within walking distance of Duval Street.

Return from the exciting nightlife to your own quiet secluded home surrounded by the National Key Deer Refuge and the Great White Heron Refuge. Frequent sighting of these tiny gentle deer are common and across your canal is a fresh water pond where the Great White Heron sometimes roost for the night. Big Pine is one of the best birding locations you will ever experience. At dawn your tropical paradise adventure begins again. Many of the birds from the surrounding islands fly over the house on their way to their daily feeding grounds. Truly a memorable experience. You will be planning your return before you even leave.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Photo of Joe and Linda sailing off Key West. We love the quiet laid back Keys lifestyle. The boating,fishing swimming and diving is right in your back yard. We use our Keys home 6 months of the year.

Why the Owner Chose Port Pine Heights (Big Pine Key, FL, USA):
We raised our family in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in a little town called Sugar Hill. The North Country is a very beautiful quiet part of the world and we wanted a place equally as spectacular to spend our winters. When we found Big Pine Key we knew we had found our second home. The only regret we have is that we didn’t move here 20 years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Big Pine Key has all amenities required a grocery store, bait shops, hardware stores (2) lumber yards (2). But if its a busy holiday weekend you can go to the Winn Dixie without going on Route 1. The locals are helpful and friendly. Big Pine has that small town feel, everyone knows everyone else, its very safe.
