Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home away from home! The location of this house is absolutely perfect! We loved the privacy of no neighbors to one side and across the canal. It was very convenient having the beach less that 15 minutes away (we used the beach pass several times, it was quite a money saver), Key West less than 45 minutes away, and the Winn Dixie grocery store less that 5 minutes (no need to bring any groceries)! We enjoyed being able to step right into our boat and be out in the open water in just a matter of minutes. We also liked the variety of outdoor spaces with plenty of outdoor furniture....a large paved driveway, shade under the house, sun by the dock, the screened porch upstairs and the sun deck upstairs too. The neighborhood is safe and quaint. It was great for bike riding and watching the Key Deer and iguanas. Other fun activities to do at Captain Ron's are painting buoys (our kids loved this unusual project) and taking the kayak out for a spin. The house was very clean, well equipped and comfortable! Captain Ron was very personable, kind and helpful! We highly recommend Captain Ron's house for a dream vacation in the Florida Keys!

Cozy home whose owners aim to please.

Stayed in this cozy home the week of Thanksgiving. I wanted to make a pumpkin pie but there was no rolling pin to make the crust. The owner and his wife brought me their rolling pin to use the day before Thanksgiving. I was most grateful.
Also loved the outside deck. It was a small area outside of the screened deck with lounge chairs. I would lay out there every night and watch all the stars move across the sky. It was spectacular to see so many stars!
Owner's Response: As always, I feel I am successful when a guest enjoys their visit. My goal is to provide a clean, comfortable vacation venue for my guests. I am especially pleased with a review like this even if a guest must leave ahead of schedule. Thank you for this review and I look forward to your return.

Great home and location.

I'll start by commending the manager on his welcoming hospitality. He met my two kids and I late in the evening after a 737 engine failure delayed us for 5 hours. We were happy to wait for the repair and Captain Ron was understanding and was there on site well after dark to welcome us and show us arond.

The place is off the hwy about 3 miles and the speed limit is 20 but it was t a problem since we usually returned after sunset and enjoyed seeing the key deer all over the neighborhood while driving in.

The home is clean and nicely decorated as a beach style house. The home was also well furnished and the porch is a great place to hang out at the end of the day or early in the morning. the neighbor was always fishing in the canal and said he caught several fish and dont forget the kayaks are included. very nice if you find time to use them in the canals. the location worked well as we had activities scheduled from key west to Islamorada. I enjoyed the drive every day no matter what our destination was. There is a cvs, Walgreens and grocery store nearby along with a couple of restaurants so whatever you need, it's nearby. We also really enjoyed Bahia Honda beach. The stay in lures daily passes and it's a great place to take the family.

Overall we had a fantastic time and the home played a big part in that. We would definitely stay again.

Thanks Captain

Owner's Response: These travelers were just a little late arriving because of the aircraft problem. Better safe than sorry. I fly frequently and being an aviator myself, I know you have to roll with the circumstances.

This arrival was not as late as a flight delayed in Switzerland arriving in the Keys after eleven PM.

My inconvenience is nothing compared to the extended travel time one planned on. Once again, I want my guests to enjoy themselves in the Florida Keys.

Thanks Heath

Peace At Last!

After selling our place in Kauai, Hawaii and moving to Southern Maryland due to family reasons, we did so with the proviso that we could escape the cold weather for at least one Winter month. Accordingly, we have now rented a home for the month of February on Big Pine & Summerland Keys for the past four years.

Ron's "escape" is by far the finest experience we've had. We've finally found a place that we can coe back to year-after-year. Ron makes sure that every amenity is accounted for, all is in top ship-shape, and that renters' desires are attended to. As an example, Items such as the provided pass to Bahia Honda are not typical, and we made great use of this added benefit.

Besides all that, the location is just great, on a quiet location right on the canal with your screened in porch facing the water (we didn't have that the past couple of years), and a kayak right there to drop into the canal to paddle out to the open water. It doesn't get much better than that in this area. Well, it does get a little better, for as when you get home, you can freshen up and take a quiet, peaceful WALK down to the No Name Pub to have a couple of cold ones and a decent pizza aside the other visitors and plenty of locals.

My only problem with writing this positive review is that it will encourage others to "Come Aboard" to Captain Ron's which just might interfere with our plans on extending our stay next year for another month to enjoy everything some more!
Owner's Response: I appreciate this review at "the risk" of someone else booking before this guest. There is no risk in this case as these people are already booked for next season.

I give my departing guests the first right of refusal for the next year and obviously I have a list of happy guests.

I credit this to my "as advertized" reviews and thank everyone for thier support.

Captain Ron has a very nice place in Big Pine Key..perfect for 4 people, and at a very affordable weekly rate. The kayak was a bonus and we got out to fish just the other side of the No Name Key bridge. There is plenty to do nearby, shopping center 2 miles away, and Key West is just 30 minutes away.
The unit is very clean, well-equipped and just right. Ron is a cool landlord who is there when you need him, but otherwise leaves you to enjoy the place. We would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: I am always pleased when a guest has an extra enjoyable visit. In this case I am doubly pleased as this was the first time Mark and Kathy had experienced a vacation rental.

Besides providing a positive experience for a guest I pride myself on the home being exactly as the promotional photos on the web site.

As Mark points out, if you need me I am available. Otherwise it is your home while you are my guest.

Thank you Mark and Kathy

Big Pine Key is in a national wildlife refuge protecting Key Deer, Great White Herrons and other rare species.

This property is located in the Doctors Arm sub-division giving fishermen quick access to both the Atlantic and the Gulf of mexico. On the gulf side is the back country. Flats fishing is excellent and a thrilling experience. One has to actually 'hunt' the fish. This does require a shallow draft boat of around 6 inches. Fighting a 4 foot shark or a 30 pound Permit, for 30 minutes on 12 pound line in a foot of water will give you something to talk about for a long time. After fishing a short drive to Key West presents dining, shoping, art galleries, and historical sites.

Other Activities: 8 miles to Bahia Honda State Beach

Notes:
Under the porch is a teak table and chairs just feet from the water for relaxing in the shade and watching wild life (Key Deer) gulls or Iguanas. Two chaise lounges are provide for sun bathing. The gas grill is located near the fish cleaning station on the dock (as is the water hose in case you are a first time grill cook). A backup propane tank is provided and available in case the tank in use runs dry in the middle of your grilling. Under the sun deck is the outdoor shower to hose off the sand and salt. I can't think of a time when the water temperature is uncomfortable. Under the porch is a bait freezer for your frozen bait. No need to share freezer space with your food supply. The seawall is 50 feet long and will accommodate your boat. The limiting factor is the canal width of 30 feet.
