Originally from Ohio I moved our family here before the children grew up because it is the opposite of cold and grey.

Dan or Cindy purchased this house in 1996

We had wintered in the area for 2 years and picked this location because of good neighbors, easy water access and a quiet street that was still near enough to US1 to have easy access to necessities.

Perfect Place in Paradise!

After spending our last three Christmas vacations touring the parks in Orlando with our two sons, now ages 8 and 12, we decided on the Keys and Casa Domingi this year. Everything was as pictured and depicted in the ad. The house was clean and well kept and the views from the bedrooms were spectacular.
Big Pine Key proved the be the perfect location for us as this was our first visit to the Keys. Its' close proximity to Marathon (maybe 15 minutes) allowed us to enjoy all it has to offer. We ate at the Sunset grill on two occasions, enjoying live music and views of the seven mile bridge and the sunset on the beautiful aqua water from the deck. We also chartered a boat from Marathon one evening for a sunset cruise.
We took a day trip (30 minute drive) to Key West. The drive itself was worth it as many bridges offered more amazing views of the water and the numerous smaller keys on the way down. While there, we enjoyed the many sights, climbed the 88 stairs to the top of the Key West Lighthouse for the view, and ate Cuban sandwiches at a roadside cafe. Of course, we had our picture taken at the southernmost marker.
Big Pine Key was more like the island living I expected from the Keys. It was laid back, but offered some good restaurants and even a Winn-Dixie right around the corner from Casa Doming. Our younger son who plays travel soccer enjoyed the nice facilities at the park within a mile of the house.
We took our two dogs with us and the large secluded yard made it easy for us to let them out. The tucked away location of Casa Domingi also made for nice walks in the neighborhood.
Casa Domingi had everything we needed and more. A large selection of movies and board games kept the kids (and us) busy when we were hanging around the house and Dan's information book told us about everything we needed to know.
We had a wonderful vacation in Big Pine Key and made memories that will last a lifetime. Overall, Casa Doming was excellent and we would recommend it to anyone wanting the perfect place in paradise.
Owner's Response: Holy cow! Do you folks need a job? Let's face it, I can't make this stuff up. It is just this good at Casa Domingi. We're just tickled that you all had a great time, that's what a good vacation is all about! Great location, great views and a great hut...it's a well hidden Florida Keys trifecta.Thanks again for spending your hard earned money with us and we hope to see you again next year.

A wonderful vacation at a great property!

Our family has always vacationed at the gulf beaches, but we were looking to do something a little different this year. Our boys are getting older (teens) and wanted more of a variety of activities. Big Pine Key and Casa Domingi fit the bill perfectly. Located about 30 miles north of Key West, Casa Domingi offers the perfect location for a Keys vacation. Upon our arrival, it was immediately apparent that the owners take great pride in their property. It is very spacious and clean, nicely furnished, and has a wonderfully roomy and well-stocked kitchen with appliances that put mine back at home to shame. (The fruit plate placed in the fridge by Dan and Cindy was an especially nice way to welcome us!) Overlooking the open waters of the gulf bay, the balcony was the perfect place to watch the sunrise each morning. We rented a boat for two days, so we really appreciated the open access to water that the house provided. Unlike some of the other smaller keys, Big Pine offers close access to some of the necessities (grocery store, drug stores, restaurants, gas stations, etc.), but without the hustle and bustle of the busier keys. Check out Dan and Cindy's guide in the house. It's got great tips on "when to", "where to", and "how to" in the area. Fishing? Pick a spot... any spot. There's lots of spots! We caught lots of fish, all kinds of fish, from yellowtail snapper to moray eels! Snorkeling on Looe Reef was amazing with its variety of sea life and fluorescent waters. A trip to the keys wouldn't be complete without a trip or two down to Key West to watch the locals, the wannabe locals, and the beautiful sunset. This was the perfect place for us to relax, unwind and spend some quality time with our soon to be grown children. Thanks Dan and Cindy for your hospitality, and for sharing your little slice of heaven with us.
Owner's Response: This area is of the best kept secrets around. All us locals know about it and thanks to fine folks such as these that spend some seat time here under a palm tree just enjoying the view, others are finding out the same. A great hut in a great location makes for a great time. Thanks guys for spending your hard earned money with us, we do appreciate it. We hope you have a great year and look forward to another visit soon.

This house has everything that you need to enjoy your Florida Keys vacation! We brought our boat and kayaks and had a great time. The water is beautiful, the views are beautiful, and the Key Deer right out in the front yard! This is the place to go if you are looking for a relaxing vacation or fishing vacation or just want to get away. The house was exactly as described on the website and we were welcomed by beautiful fresh cut flowers and a fabulous fruit tray upon our arrival to the house. You couldn't ask for better accommodations! We will definitely be back! Thank you!
Owner's Response: Once you get beyond the spectacular view, the peaceful surroundings and the great open water access, sometimes it's the little things that mean a lot. We treat you the way we would like to be treated to a fresh and clean hut with a little extra something something.
Great reviews like this from great guests having a great time make our world go around, we can hardly wait to see you again.

Great stay at the Casa Domingi

We just had a wonderful timeduring our stay at the Casa Domingi. It was so nice to arrive to such a comfortable and inviting home after the long drive from the north. We arrived arely afternoon to a deer on the side lawn, and a fruit platter in the fridge compliments of Dan and Cindy. The owners were very helpful and great to talk with. The rental process was very smooth and professional, and Dan gave us his suggestions on things to do and see in the area. We liked the layout of the home. The kitchen and living rooms are open allowing for food prep and cooking while still spending time with the family. The kitchen is fully equiped with everything needed to cook and serve all meals and all of the appliances were clean and worked great. The location was perfect for us with Bahia Honda right up the road and Key west only a 45 minute drive. The views of the water and sunrises are so spectacular that I would have been happy to just stay and hang out on the back patio with a cold drink and not venture out at all. I would highly recomend the Casa Domingi to anyone looking for a great place to feel at home while enjoying the wonderful Florida Keys. Thanks again Dan and Cindy for our chance to stay in your piece of paradise, we hope to make it back again soon!
Owner's Response: Casa Domingi is what a vacation on an island in paradise is all about. No stress, great weather, unparalleled views and a nice and clean hut with all the creature comforts of home. 2700 sq. ft. of palm tree lined clean concrete patio running right up to the water's edge makes a great place to grab a chaise and tan, barbeque or just hang out and listen to nature, some music or better yet the companionship of friends and family.
We thank you much for staying with us, for your honest review, we do hope you'll swing by again. It was great having you all down.

4-kids 10 and Under and the Parents that Claim them...

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 2, 2013

This house was everything that was described. Located just a tad North of the main strip on Big Pine Key in the Key Deer Sanctuary. Yes they have 8' tall fences to keep the deer and kids in.. The house sits on Spanish Harbor which has a great view of the sunrise and moon-rise which we had hoped to see. You can only take so many sunsets in Key West.
The property was great and is located next to another rental property and what I think is a weekend home for and older couple. We pre-apologized to them when we arrived due to the kids and the neighbor was more than undertanding.
We had 8 people in our party. 4- adults and 4- kids.. There are beds for six and couches, they dont fold out but are more than comfortable as a few adults spent the night after kids refused to be moved.
I would say it would be great for 6 adults no problem. Individual Split Heat/AC units allowed us to stay cool while my parents stayed warm.
The local fare is great many good places to eat and see. The Flea Market was missed this trip but looked like a great time.
For anyone that likes to fish....
We went out on the No Name Key Bridge which is about 1/2 mile up Spanish Harbor to the left from house and caught a little bit of everything.
If you want a FIrst Class outfit to take you out back then you want to look up Captain Jim Peabody and Reel Therapy Charters. He knows the area and knows where the fish are located. Went out in pretty bad conditions two days of our stay and caught enough fish to fill the cooler and load it with Dry Ice for a fish fry back home. Also had a chance to catch a Goliath Grouper - 100+#.. That will get the heart racing..
It was a great 8 days at the Casa Domingi... We were lucky and able to add a 8th night due to an open week before we arrived.

You cannot go wrong with the property and the location.. Just far enough away from Key West to feel like you are not a tourist.

Thanks for allowing us to use your property.

Owner's Response: You hit the nail on the head bringing up great points about Casa Domingi that those of us who live down here sometimes forget. This place makes a great base for "vacation operations". Live like a local and vacation like a pro. Quiet and secluded with an ocean for a back yard and a front yard uncommonly large enough to toss around a football. Day trips to Key West are easy as (key lime) pie after starting your day watching the serenity of the open water light up and come alive with the rising sun while perched above on your private verandah with a quiet cup of coffee. Or hop on over to soak up the sun and salt water of one of the top rated natural beaches in America at Bahia-Honda Key... it is literally just out the window. Of course you can act like a local, grab a chaise on the patio at water's edge under one of our coconut trees, kick back with the only umbrella being the one in your drink... and enjoy. It's all good down here in paradise. We thank you for your visit, for spending your hard earned money with us and for your true review. We do hope to see you again.
