About Tony

I fell in love with the Florida Keys on my very first trip and my wife and I have spent countless wonderful hours enjoying the tropical environment of the Keys. Bahia Honda State Park, which is easily accessible from our home, is a national treasure and truly a paradise. The park is the reason why we purchased a home on Big Pine Key. I know that the magical environment of the Keys will afford you a wonderful vacation!

Tony purchased this house in 1988

Why Tony chose Lower Keys Area

Our home is nestled in nature yet convenient to all the activities that one can enjoy in the lower Keys.

What makes this house unique

A nicely decorated home in paradise.

Just paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful, close to everything and yet realy quiet surrounded by tropical vegetation. The house has everything you need, all you need to bring is your clothes and food. The owners are realy great, friendly and helpfull. Just 10 minutes away from the most beautiful beach in the USA: Bahia Honda. And the owner leaves you his annual pass so you can go as often as you want. Key west is just 40 minutes away. You can't beat the weather in the keys... and the sea temperature is always comfortable to swim, even in january and February. This house is paradise in paradise.

Perfect Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of March 2016 at this home and it was our first time visiting the Keys. We enjoy nature and Big Pine Key turned out to be a good choice for us. But the best choice of all, was selecting this home to stay. I cannot recommend it more. It is just a perfect size for 2-4 people and has everything you need. The owner maintains this home extremely well and it is evident many upgrades have been done during the years of owning the home. In addition, we found the home extremely clean. The home just has a very comfortable feel to it - not fancy, but very adequate. It is in an extremely quiet and safe residential neighborhood and the home itself is surrounded by tropical palms which gives you total privacy, both from inside and the deck/yard. The location of the home is super close (1 mile) to grocery store and pharmacy. Big Pine Key is good central location to go to either Key West or Upper Keys. One of the great perks the owner provides is an entrance pass to go to nearby Bahia Honda State Park, which saves $9 for two people to gain entrance each time. Having WiFi at the home is also very convenient. The owner is absolutely the best to work with and provides quick response to emails and giving any details or information one needs about the home. I don't give many reviews online or provide positive comments without being justified. You can't go wrong with this home or dealing with the owner.

Great Central Location and the best island in the Keys for Nature

  • 5 of 5

I spent the month of June 2015 in this home. The home is spacious and equipped with most everything you need. Just bring your suitcase and your toys (boats, kayaks, mask and snorkel, air tanks, hiking shoes, hydration pack, etc.) The house is elevated so, your car and your toys are out of the sun when you are home. The outdoor area is very private, inviting, and comfortable. I spent a lot of time on the deck grilling seafood. It's a very quiet and peaceful place to spend a vacation. The owner is very easy going, communicates well, and interested in his guests enjoying their stay. Big Pine is fairly central to the middle and lower Keys. Only 25 minutes up to Marathon and 45 minutes down to Key West. The best part of my stay was the nature on this island. Of course, the Key Deer are everywhere and very tame. I also saw Alligator and many species of birds and fish at Blue Hole. The owner includes a day pass to Bahia Honda State Park. This saves you lots of money going into the park. While at Bahia Honda, I saw a Spotted Eagle Ray, Bahamian Sea Star, Long Spine Sea Urchin, and the usual suspects like sand crabs, and small reef fish. I highly recommend this property for those that want a safe quiet location and love nature yet, want to see all the Keys have to offer from Islamorada to Key West. It's all reachable within about an hour from this house and the best parts are just minutes away.

Very nice house at a great location in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of January at this house and we really enjoyed our stay.

The house has plenty of room. From the pictures on the web, I thought we’d have less room than we actually had.

Kitchen area, dining area and living room give you lots of space to live in.

The outside is nice and clean and with a lot of vegetation all around the property.

There is a deck in the back that gives you the possibility to sit outside. On the deck there is a nice BBQ to cook your favorite meals.

The Keys and the people living here are for the most very laid back and relaxed, and this place is no different. People here are very nice and almost always say hello whether meeting you in the street, at the groceries or on the beach.

We loved the location of the house. It’s about 45 minutes from Key West, and 10-15 minutes from Bahia Honda state park (the beach).

If you go to the beach at Bahia Honda you’ll find that there are 3 beaches there. We recommend sandspur beach, but take a look at all of them, they are all very nice and you can always find a place where there is almost no wind (2 beaches on the south side, one on the north side). The owner include a Beach pass in the rental and this saves you 9.50$ per visit, so that’s a nice treat.

We did a lot of kayaking and our favorite spot to go out from was on Kudjoe Key. It’s about 15-20 minutes from Big Pine Key. Go to the end of Blimp Road where you’ll find a free public boat ramp. From here you will have many choices for a nice outing in your kayak on the Gulf side of the island.

Additional information about rental rates

You will have full use of my Bahia Honda State Park beach pass which will allow you to enter the park whenever you desire. (It would cost $9.00 for two people to enter the park on a daily basis without the pass.) Because of local rental laws I can only accept monthly rentals. Also, I've never had a tenant book a rental directly through VRBO so there truly is no need to incur an unnecessary service fee. VRBO blocks out all direct contact information so please call me directly at 610-675-9916.
