Recent Big Pine Key reviews

  • Big Pine Key

    "The house was actually better than what we expected. The house was well maintained nand in a very good neighborhood. I have rented other properties in the Keys over the years and generally found the pictures and descriptions failed to show the downsides of the properties. This house was the opposite - it was actually better than what we expected. I would stay there again and would highly recommend this property."

  • Perfect Place

    "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."

  • 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!"
