  • Awesome location

    "The property is in a prime location with easy access to Gulf and ocean. Our party of 13 had lots of room and the kids had fun dipping in the pool. The property manager, Kevin, was awesome. There wasn't Internet or cable when we arrived and Kevin worked tirelessly with the carrier to get it up and running. Although we didn't get it until 3 days before we left (7 day rental), Kevin was gracious and constantly worked with the carrier. We are planning on returning next year. Had to clean out bait freezer....it was built up with ice and can't fit a small bag of bait. Took 2 days to thaw out to clean. Also, Due to current pushing in sea grass, ended up raking up 8 trash cans to prevent clogging of boat motor. I would rate it a 5 except for the Internet and the cleaning we had to do. All in all, even that did not make a dent in our enjoyment. The house and property is a gem."

  • Peace and Quiet Keys Style

    "We stayed in Joe and Linda's Port Pine Home (Big Pine Key) for the month of August 2016. The area was perfect for us it had canal access to Bay side and short distance to the ocean side. Their home is very clean and well cared for and very roomy. Linda was very thoughtful in stocking the kitchen with everything you could need and provided plenty of linens. We really appreciated the secure area downstairs to lock our gear and the freezer for bait and ice. The outdoor shower is a great feature. So was the fish cleaning station. The neighbors were very friendly liked them a lot. Joe and Linda were very easy reach by phone or text. We have already booked again for next year can't wait!"

  • For us, this place worked out great!

    "The location of this house was our favorite part, it is right across the channel from Big Pine Key, which happens to be our favorite, with all the key deer roaming around. It is less than a half hour from Key West, and about 15 minutes from Bahia Honda State Park. We loved the water front property, it was plenty big enough for us to pull our 42 foot 5th wheel in, completely set it up, and also park two large pick up trucks. The use of the kayaks was very nice, even if the wind didn't cooperate most of our stay, and the pool was a refreshing treat. When we arrived there was only one kayak, when the listing stated two, I sent Donald a text, and he had someone bring us another the same day. The house itself is an older house, and a bit dated, but it worked out well. It was clean when we arrived, and felt comfortable. The two upstairs bedrooms are small, as the listing states they are. The master down stairs is plenty big, and has a connecting bathroom. The living room area was big, comfortable, and had a nice view of the water. The down stairs (efficiency) is nice to have for the extra fridge, and a down stairs bathroom, but I wouldn't feel comfortable letting anyone sleep down there. Donald did make sure to tell me that it is not as nice as the rest of the house, and he was right. My husband did get bit by a scorpion while walking through there one evening to use the bathroom. That was a little scary, and very painful, but after some quick research we learned that there are no deadly scorpions in FL, and by the next day there was no sign of the bite on his foot. The decks are dated, and kind of sketchy in places. We avoided the top deck because of this, but had lots of fun on the ground level. The neighborhood was quiet, and laid back. In my honest opinion the price is a bit high for this home, but since we could fit our 5th wheel in the lot (we travel full time in it for work so it's always with us), the location, the fact that they are pet friendly, and being right on the water was so nice, we would rent it again. Donald and his wife were very easy to work with, friendly, and were always quick with their responses whenever I contacted them. We thank you for sharing your home with us, Donald, all in all, we enjoyed spending the holidays there, and hated to leave the beautiful Florida Keys! Wishing you & yours all the best in 2016!"

  • Indeed, A Great Escape!

    "This was our first time staying at The Great Escape, but it certainly will not be our last! Not only was the home beautiful, spacious & had everything we needed, plus more, but Bette & Ski were a delight! I can't say enough wonderful things regarding our experience dealing with Ski & Bette, from the moment we started the rental process, to meeting them on our arrival and after our stay, in booking it again next year! If you're looking for a lovely home, with even lovelier owners you've found it at The Great Escape... You will NOT be disappointed!"
