Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I took or sons on our annual fishing trip to BPK the week of 6/18/2016 and stayed here for the first time. The house is well kept, the appliances were new, and you could not ask for a better location or view. Diana was very responsive, answered all our questions, and was wonderful to deal with. She called the day before we were to arrive to advise of some challenges with the boat lift and was very apologetic. She had the repairman out during our stay but we had no need to use the lift as we had more then enough room for our 29 foot and 21 foot center consoles. The boys really enjoyed using the kayaks and the ground level was a great place to hang out. It's a quick run Oceanside, to Bahia Honda, or gulf side. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Open Water Views!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another amazing vacation at this property and we can't wait to go back for a third time! This is a beautiful, very clean and comfortable home, complete with everything you need to prepare all those Keys dishes like fish or lobster. The area is known for its fishing and the home sits on a beautiful open water view lot. My husband can stop talking about the two red snappers he caught off the dock and although they were a nice size, they seem to grow every time he tells the story! We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Big Pine Key, which included a quick trip to Key West, and we plan on returning. The owner, Diana, could not be more accommodating & she will make your vacation is a memorable one.

What a view! Our family really enjoyed this Beautiful house and location. The boat dock and lift were perfect for our 22 ft Hydro-Sport. This house has all the amenities you could ask for. Kitchen is fully stocked for what ever you would like to make. Plenty of towels and bedding. Each room is beautifully decorated and Very clean. Private drive, like having your own island. Enjoyed the Ping Pong table and Corn-hole

Best Time in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from our stay at Diana's and miss it already. This is such a comfortable house and the location is perfect. So many extras with the house created so many fun activities for my wife, kids and I. Fishing off the dock and in the canal were great. Caught a few small grouper and some medium size tarpon. Bike riding around the neighborhood and over to No Name Key was fun. The location is convenient to both Key West and Marathon and there are so many things to do and great places to eat at, at both locations. Fireworks were launched on July 3rd from the local park and we had the best seat in the house. Diana was very helpful with any questions we had on local eateries and activities. No Name Pub was a great experience, full of interesting history and stories. I never saw the sunrise, as I was on vacation, but sunsets were very pretty and the full moon rising over the water was beautiful. Overall, just a wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone who just wants to get away and relax.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Diana,

I wanted to thank you and let you know that we had the best vacation we have had in a long time while staying at your beautiful home in Big Pine Key. We were excited from the moment we walked in and saw how well equipped and comfortable your home was. Everything we could ever need or want was already there for us. The endless open water views from the deck were amazing and super relaxing. The only time there was any commotion was when my husband caught a large tarpon while fishing right off the dock!

We just came back and we are already looking at your calendar to schedule another vacation!
