Beautiful place to stay. Lots of deer
The house is cozy and clean. All new cupboards and appliances. Laundry onsite. Lots of key deer - drive slow! There were a couple issues with window cranks and a leaky bathroom in the Florida Room, but heat and air worked great. Nice patio set to sit and having morning coffee and lots of wildlife. The Doctor's Arm is a lovely spot and Captain Ron was good about communicating.
Key Deer Sanctuary and Boaters Paradise
This a very quiet nice community with water access at your back door and room for a boat if you desire.I particularly liked the central location to the main areas I wanted to visit.20-25 mins from Key West and about the same to Marathon where the Bahia Honda state park is located. Fully equipped and all of the amenities necessary for a really enjoyable vacation.
Great Family Time
First time spending 2 weeks at Capt. Ron's properties. Have done one week, but this enabled us the time to enjoy our family from Michigan. The Florida room gave us the extra room we needed. The place is always clean & there is no lack of towels & linens & kitchenware. We all loved sitting in back to eat drink & talk. Of course our frequent visitors, the Key deer were enjoyed by all. Capt. Ron is always available & pleasant to work with.
Once again I am pleased to find that my guests enjoyed their visit to paradise.
When I hear guests are pleased with the accommodations and amenities, It lets me know I am doing my job properly.
Thank you for your comments.
Clean and Convenient - Great Experience!
This was our first vacation home rental and we were not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at all this home had to offer. The home was clean and well equipped. When Ron told us we didn't need to bring anything but our toothbrush, he wasn't lying! We had everything we needed, right down to the soft towels and functioning blender. We enjoyed working with Captain Ron, as well. He was pleasant, professional, responsive and very accomodating.
The Carribean Retreat is conveniently located to many Keys attractions. It was an easy drive to both Key West and to Islamorada. We kept our 18' flats boat in the canal out back and were able to gain access to both the Gulf and the Atlantic within minutes. The quiet No Name Bridge boat ramp was just a few blocks away. As much as there is to do out and about, there is just as much to do right at home. We enjoyed having dinner on the back patio overlooking the canal. We also enjoyed taking in the local wildlife including the key deer, blue crab and iguanas that we often found in our back yard.
We would absolutely stay here, or at any of Captain Ron's other properties, in the future.
I am more than pleased when a first time vacation guest has a positive experience. I try to make sure that my home is always "as advertized" when I have guests.
I maintain a first come first served policy as I have many repeat guests and I try not to disapoint guests or future guests.
Guest reviews such as this one tells me that I must be doing something right and I sincerely appreciate a review like this,
Thank you for your comments.
Great place to stay
We had a great time at capt Ron's place. It was very clean and in a peaceful neighborhood. Would definitely go back again!
Thanks for the positive review. I enjoyed meeting these guests from New Jersey.
AS always, I am pleased when guests enjoy their visit to paradise.
Keys Caribbean Retreat is peaceful and relaxing!!
Our family stayed here and Captain Ron was the most hospitable person to deal with. He greeted us at the door to show us around and we immediately noticed the house was very clean, comfortable and stocked with everything you need. Our small dogs were as as welcome as we were. He told us the story of the Pirates and for the kids to beware! Then we were off on our own and had the best time... We rented a boat and the canal was very adequate and easy to get out of to the channel. The deer and the Iguanas were everywhere and the kids have loads of pics with them. Captain Ron even had them paint their own Styrofoam buoys. The biggest advantage of Big Pine is having the Winn Dixie just down the road. I will definitely love to go back and I'm ready NOW! Highly recommended. Thanks Capt'n Ron for everything!
Once again I have a guest return home satisfied with my home and amenities.
It always pleases me when people have a good time. The eye patch is for the kids with stories of pirates of the American Caribbean. Younger kids get a laugh out of it. These guests did an exceptional job painting the lobster trap buoys. I will post a picture or two of the sights these people enjoyed.
Big Pine Key affords great fishing, kayaking, boating and nature adventures. Big Pine Key is home to the Key dear, an endangered species, and they periodically come into the yard to graze.
This area of Big Pine Key is quiet and relaxing. No traffic and noise. This rental includes use of a kayak, bicycles, and free high speed wireless internet access.
