About Amy Fischer

Our family loves being outdoors whether it's fishing, snorkeling, lobstering, tubing or paddle boarding. This is why our we love our Keys house so much, because we can do all of the activities we love here.

Amy Fischer purchased this house in 2006

Why Amy Fischer chose Big Pine Key

You will not have trouble finding the No Name Pub from this house. This famous restaurant, a favorite of the locals, is in walking distance. On your walk, you can also stroll across the No Name Bridge where you will most likely see a stingray, shark or other sea creature (not to mention the beautiful open water view). For finer dining in the casual 'keys' atmosphere, the Square Grouper located on Cudjoe Key is a must!!! The food is delicious and it is only a 10 minute drive south. Barracuda Grill is also another great restaurant and is located in Marathon and is about a 20 minute ride north.

Old Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp is located less than a mile away with a boat ramp, full bait and tackle shop, complete with boat rental and fuel.

What makes this house unique

Big Pine Key, Mile Marker 30, is a unique island because of it's large size and available fresh water. It is home to the famous Key Deer who are protected and can be seen roaming in our yard at all times. Deep-sea, reef or flats fishing are some of your many choices. Divers and snorkelers will love Looe Key and swimming at Bahia Honda State Park. Exciting Key West is only 3 minutes away. There is also a famous and exclusive island called Little Palm Island that can be reached only by a boat shuttle. On Sundays they have an awesome brunch.

Our home is just 5 minutes away from the Winn Dixie Shopping Center. We have a pharmacy nearby, banks, post office, restaurants, assorted shopping, dive shops, tackle shops and much more in our area.

Shopping in Marathon is only a 15 minute drive north. Shopping, beaches, restaurants, and night life in Key West is only a 30 minute drive south. Our house has the best of both worlds-enjoy the rush and excitement of Key West with its 5 star dining, dancing and live music. Historic Old Town Key West offers up nightly sunset celebrations, art, shopping and casual to fine dining all within walking distance of Duval Street. And then you can return to the peace and tranquility of Big Pine!!

Beautiful, fun place for family

  • 5 of 5

Starfisch is in the perfect spot on Big Pine Key, close to Key West, Bahia Honda Park and Marathon. Snorkel, swim, fish, kayak. We did it all. The home is beautiful along a peaceful canal with key deer everywhere and even a manatee. No Name Pub, with its walls plastered with dollar bills, is just a walk away. The home has everything for young and old, even a hammock and screened-in porch.

About As Comfortable As One Can Get!

  • 5 of 5

Look in Webster's under "Comfortable" and you will find Starfisch Hideaway in Big Pine Key, FL. We just spent a wonderful month (March 2014) at this special place and it was so relaxing. And my wife said it had every furnishing you need in a home. Even an ironing board. Favorite spots were the large sun deck and width of the home screened porch out of the sun. The large outdoor table with chairs under the house located next to the grill was perfect. Always a cool breeze here, on the sun deck and screened porch. Really nice dock. Mangrove snapper, Parrot Fish and Angel Fish in the canal. Neighbor said there had been a large Manatee in the canal for several days. Key deer everywhere. They are so small and so beautiful. Convenient to "No Name Pub" we walked up there a couple of time. Great food. It's fish country but you have to try their pizza. Easy drive to Key West and Bahia Honda State Park and Beach. Good restaurants close by. Excellent selections at Winn Dixie store within two miles. Yard has beautiful vegetation with six large Coconut trees. Very private. Just a great place!

Our month in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending the month of March 2013 at the Starfisch Hideaway. It was so comfortable and inviting! The location in the Keys was absolutely perfect for us. Beaches were close by and the trip to Key West was so easy that we would drive over for the day at least twice a week. Restaurants were close on several keys and a grocery store was nearby as well. The owners were just a phone call away and were accommodating. We would recommend this lovely rental in one of the most beautiful areas of our country!
