Why Leo chose Big Pine Key

We like to think of this house and its location as "fancy camping". You are right in the middle of a deer preserve. There is actually a wooded area right across the street.

What makes this house unique

The house is located on the northern most tip of Big Pine Key. It is remote enough to be surrounded by uninhabited islands that are just a short boat ride or kayak away. Despite that, shopping and groceries are just a short drive from the house.

Wonderful week at Captain D's Hideout

  • 5 of 5

Great week at this lovely and extremely well-maintained home. We didn't have any problems once we learned channels and navigating the shallow waters. The home had everything needed to enjoy our time there. Thank you so much!

Very good overall

  • 4 of 5

An excellent place for peace and quiet. Would highly recommend if you like fishing the backcountry and know how to navigate shallow water. I would recommend bringing your own surge protector to save your electronics. Overall we had a great stay. Leo was very helpful.

Thanks,

Leo

We absolutely loved the place! Rental was very clean, had everything we could have asked for! They Key deer were amazing to see and the Bahia Honda was a short drive away with the most amazing beaches. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

We moved after a week from an efficiency at the Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge. There were fifteen of us that go down the same week every week. It was a very busy week, between socializing and fishing. When we arrived at the house we were instantly impressed. This beautifully decorated and well appointed home welcomed us with open arms. We enjoyed the solitude. Our only visitors were the Key Deer who wandered through the yard several times a day. We even saw a baby who still had its spots. The kitchen had everything you need and more. You have to pass a Winn Dixie every time you left or returned to the property, They sell fresh fish and wonderful steaks.There are several spots to fish nearby if you don't have a boat. We never had any interaction with the owners. Judging from their taste in decor I am sure they are very nice people. The confirmation letter addressed everything and we hade no issued where we needed assistance. We wikk definately stay again and refer Captain D's Hideout to our friends. Thank you for sharing your home with us. The James family.

Fantastic house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had two weeks in Florida. One week in Orlando and one week in Big Pine at Captain D's Hideout. What a massive difference this house was to the place we stayed at the first week.

The house and garden were just as described on the site. Often photos can flatter a property and then when you arrive you are disappointed. We arrived in the dark but even then you could tell that the place was beautiful.

You can tell that that house is a much loved place that the owners also use to retreat to. The place was full of beautiful little touches. It's a house that has a lived in and loved feel. We spent loads of time on the porch just relaxing and listing to the breeze rustling the palm trees.

The Key Dear were delightful and never failed to turn up in the evening.

We had very few problems. Leo was very helpful and attentive for the two minor issues that we had.

We would definitely come back if we lived in the States. If we're back in Florida one day we'd love to come back.

The Perfect House for us!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked up the steps to the back porch we felt the biggest sense of relaxation. We totally loved our stay here. We met several neighbors and had some local friends over for dinner a few times. The house is just as described and then some. The back porch is where we spent most of our time if we weren't on our boat. We loved the back yard and the sounds of the palm trees in the breeze. Was just perfect for us and exactly what we needed after staying a month in Key West! The kitchen has everything you need to cook with, the bed was very comfortable. There are two rooms but we only used one. Nicely decorated, premium cable, and very clean. The owner was great and always responded promptly. If you are looking to really sink into the keys, this is your place! We made several trips out to the Contents, which are just beautiful. We really enjoyed getting out on the water and exploring all the different areas. Was really hard to leave....but we get to come back next year! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with two cool people from NC. LOVED our stay!
