PEAK A BOO BAY VIEWS & QUICK ACCESS TO THE OPEN WATERS; GULF & OCEAN. We’d like to share our home with you. It’s a very spacious and clean 2 bedrooms, 2 bath home with an over sized master bdrm & bath. Cathedral ceiling in spacious living room that includes a queen size sleep sofa. Home is bright & airy. Wide, open covered deck with wrap around walkway.
Home is on a 50ft wide canal and is just off of the Bogie Channel with easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic. Great fishing, lobstering, kayaking and diving. Concrete dock, fish cleaning station & fenced in yard.
There are many activities and lots of fun in the sun for the family, i.e. Dive or snorkel off of Looe Key Reef, great fishing, lobstering and spearfishing. Visit Bahia Honda State Park or even take a ride to Key West, which is only 31 miles away. Enjoy Kayaking, Canoeing & Paddle Boarding too! National Key Deer Refuge is also in Big Pine Key, you will be greeted by our tiny island key deer which you will see roaming around everywhere, so please be careful of them as they cross the roads.
Also be sure to check out the beautiful white sand beaches at Bahia Honda State Park and the National Key Deer Rescue. There, you can see the tiny – and very cute – wild deer known as Key deer, about the size of a large dog. The kids will love it and so will you. You will also enjoy our seafood and you'll find some of the nation’s best seafood restaurants here and on nearby keys.
While we have some toiletries and pantry items for our personal use, please plan on supplying your own.
There are 2 international airports that you fly into; either Key West International which is approximately 30 miles away or Miami International which is approximately 100 miles away. If you decide to fly into Miami International Airport and drive the 100 miles thru to The Florida Keys, expect the travel time to be approximately 2 hours. We have 1 road (Overseas Highway) that goes thru our Beautiful Keys with a speed limit of 45 to 55 the majority of the way and sometimes 35 if your driving thru Big Pine Key at night. Although the trip will take you some time, it will be a very breathtaking trip as you travel thru the different keys with the view of our beautiful blue/green waters. Be sure to make some stops at the different gift stores that we have, i.e. Shell World in Key Largo, Lunch at Key Largo Fisheries in Marathon, the Lobster Rueben is delicious and don't forget to get a piece of Key Lime Pie for dessert. As you make your way thru Marathon, there is a Publix Grocery Store & a Kmart if you need to stop for any necessities, fishing license, etc. There is also a Winn Dixie Grocery store just down from your rental too. As you enter into Big Pine Key, please be careful of the Key Deer as they do roam the key freely.
You'll find relaxing, water-borne activities. So Come dip your toes in the water and some fun in the sun!!

Great house !!!!
Nice clean, and well kept. Boat access is excellent! I don't have one negative to say about this place, truly a relaxing place to stay.
Good clean house, GREAT dockage and canal. Big boat no problem.Loved the well-furnished porch overlooking the canal with views of the harbor. We met a couple of neighbors and they were nice. Owner is friendly and responsive and I would definitely rent this house again. My only gripe is that the house should have been supplied a little better. I've rented a lot of houses over the years and have come to expect at least a weeks worth of trash bags, dishwashing soap and laundry detergent, coffee filters etc. Most keys houses also have a freezer downstairs since you go through lots of ice. This one did not.
Thank you for your review Andy. We welcome you back to our home anytime. I apologize that we did not have any of the typical household items that you mentioned in the home and for any inconvenience this may have caused. I know when you come down for vacation your mission is to GO FISHING, so this was probably a bummer. Normally, there are trash bags, coffee filters, laundry soap, dish soap, etc. I will look into why you weren't supplied these items. As for the stand alone freezer, I think we spoke about what had happened to it. We are working on getting another one .
Thank you again for the nice review and we'll see you on your next trip to the Florida Keys.
We'd like to share our home with you. Come visit the natural Keys. Big Pine Key is about 100 miles south of Miami and 30 miles north of Key West. You'll be greeted by our tiny island natives. Ride a bicycle through Key Deer country, or take a fishing adventure in the backcountry or troll the deep blue waters beyond the reef. Big Pine is the jumping off point for numerous snorkel or dive excursions to the 210-foot wreck of the Adolphus Busch, Sr., and Looe Key coral reef. Far from being overcrowded, the pace of life on Big Pine Key is casual and relaxed.
