Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come stay at Barry Beach and enjoy some island time.

This cottage was built in 1965 and still looks original on the outside, but has been updated inside for your comfort. The ground level house is painted in bright tropical colors to give you that that old island feel. This spacious 2000 square foot house has plenty of room to spread out. On one side are 2 large king size master bedroom suites, each with a connecting bathroom. On the other side of the house are two other bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one with two twins), and these two bedrooms share a bathroom. All this overlooks the fenced in pool area and Pine Channel. Out front is 200 foot dock for mooring your boat, with dockage for 2 boats and with 4' minimum depth at low tide. There is water and a hose at the end of the dock for washing your boat and cleaning fish at the end of the day.

From Barry Beach, it takes only minutes in your boat to get out front to Looe Key and American Shoals, and has easy access out back to the Gulf and the Content Keys. Whether you are diving, fishing, kayaking, or just going boating, you'll find it easy and quick to get to your destination.

So just relax on the pool deck and watch the sunrise or moonrise over Pine Channel. You can grill your catch of the day and dine outside at the tables in front of the pool and enjoy the fantastic view. This house is truly set up for waterfront living at its best.

We are a legal weekly rental and are licensed with Monroe Courty to rent daily, weekly and monthly.

About The Owner

My husband and I both grew up in Northwestern Wisconsin. We owned and operated a fishing camp in Red Lake, Ontario, Canada for 24 years, during which time we made the Keys our winter home. We sold our business in 2003 and now reside here full time.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Lower Keys Area

We fell in love with the property and liked the idea that the house was an older, ground level building. It reflected what the Keys may have been like 40 years ago before all the development. Not to mention the vacant lots on both sides that allow for the property feel so private, even though it is close to so many amenities.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Barry Beach house for the past two years, it's a beautiful house in a perfect location! We love everything about this house, the sunrise, private pool and location is perfect for any sightseeing in the Keys. Bahia Honda beach is only a few minutes north and only 30 minutes to all Key West has to offer. My only wish is that we could stay for a longer period of time!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I struggle to find adjectives to describe this beautiful place for our family. "Perfect" doesn't begin to describe it. There was plenty of room with the open concept design and loved the split bedrooms. The two sinks in the kitchen was much appreciated with several adults preparing the lobsters from our dives along with other meals. Watching the sun rise in the master bedroom with sitting area was spectacular. The home itself was private being surrounded by mangroves and other foliage. Every morning we were greeted by the local iguanas around the pool who just wanted to say "good morning" and off they went. The convenient outside shower was used often to rinse dive gear and salt water from self and other toys. Location is very convenient to Key West (approx. 30 minutes) and within walking distance to Kiki's Grill. Owner was very accommodating in answering all my questions prior to arrival and even left extra floats for us to use. I told my husband we were going to handcuff our selves to the pool railing because we didn't want to leave. Definitely one of our all time vacations.

Wonderful vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit..never get tired of this place. There were 4 couples..plenty of room to spread out. The only issuecwe had tjisctime was two very slick areas by tge pool..just in front if the ladder...and about two feet to thevkeft of ladder and towards the tall table in corner. One guy fell twice and I fell once. Fortunately, no major injuries, but could have been. The owners were out of town, but did notify Action Keys Realty, whom we rented through. We will be back as I am sure tye problem will be corrected ...absolutely love this place.

Wonderful property, wonderful owners. Best house in lower keys.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 10-11 days twice now. Property is perfectly maintained. Location is great. Restaurants and bars in both Big Pine and Ramrod are excellent. There is a major grocery store just across the bridge. You are only about 20 minutes from Key West. This is a great house for a getaway.

Awesome Week(s)

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 week vacation at Barry's Beach! Family and friends came in and we had 8 people in the house and it never felt crowded. Pool was great and location was perfect. Kiki's next door, close to Big Pine if you needed anything and very quiet and secluded feeling. This is a great house for a family getaway.

Our Tropical Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We live in northern Wisconsin and look forward to our winter vacations. This was our first visit to Barry Beach with 2 other couples. Loved the location like we were on a tropical island, but still close to the grocery store, shopping, the flea market, and a short drive to Key West. We had a lot of fun fishing also!! My daughter and her husband have been here before and loved it. This house had everything we needed, from the beautiful kitchen with all the essentials you need and very comfortable bedrooms. Love the extra refrigerator for beverages! We enjoyed the pool very much. We even had a Green Bay Packer party during our stay!! "Go Pack" We checked out the No Name Pub and had a large amazing pizza and tried counting all the dollar bills on the ceiling and walls, amazing!! There is a lot of great places to eat close by and happy hour specials too. It was just nice to relax in the warm weather in this beautiful house next to your own private pool! The owners are wonderful people! Thank you, we enjoyed it very much! We will be back!
