Why Leo chose Port Pine Heights
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.

We keep coming back!
We have stayed at this property a few times in the past year and after many years of vacationing in different parts of the Keys, I think we have found our favorite spot. The house is quite comfortable, is located in a very quiet neighborhood at the north end of Big Pine Key and is absolutely perfect for us. We enjoy the Key Deer that wander through the yard and the fact that we can launch our kayak right from the dock at the backyard. It's also far enough away from much of the light pollution that star gazing is fabulous! We usually have our bicycles with us and it's an easy ride to the Blue Hole and a nature trail. Big Pine Key also has many trails in the Key Deer Refuge that you can hike or bike on. Having the Winn Dixie / CVS / Walgreen's only 5 miles away is also a bonus!
Leo, the owner, has been wonderful to work with; he responds promptly to messages and goes out of his way to make sure we have everything we need during our stay.
Hands down this is our favorite place to stay and we will definitely keep coming back!
Thanks for the kind words. We do our best to make everyone feel at home.
Off the beaten path and beautiful
Captain D’s has everything you need to have an enjoyable and memorable stay in the lower Keys. The place was immaculate when we arrived and I think the area (natural areas) in general is well on its way to recovering from Irma. The Key Deer are plentiful and are roaming the property daily. My only negative is that it is now a 28 day minimum stay which puts me out for ever being able to stay here again until we are retired! It’s a shame because this place is great!
The house was clean and comfortable... it's in a nice little woodys spot but still close to the main highway.
Can't wait to go back!
The house was equipped with everything we needed and more. Short run to the reef and the back country. Last but not least, the Key Deer were a pleasure to see.
A true gem in Big Pine Key!
Fantastic home, beautifully-maintained, super clean, great location and with all the amenities! You really couldn't ask for more. We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Leo!!
House was very clean, cool, comfortable, surrounded by nature
We were at the house the first two weeks of July. We arrived with our boat, scuba equipment and paddle boards. It was so perfect for all our water sports. It was a short boat ride to either the Atlantic or Gulf. Paddle boarding was amazing from this location. Each day I paddled into the Gulf and felt like I was in an episode of the National Geographic. There are so many pretty birds, deer, fish, stingrays and lots of baby sharks to see on a paddle. Big Pine Key is a rural non touristy location. By boat we went to Picnic Island several times to see the sunset and swim at the sandbar. We look forward to staying at this house again really soon.
Your stay is right in the middle is a deer preserve and yet all your needed conveniences are nearby.
