Ann's place is one of the most neat, clean and nicest places we've stayed in the Keys, and we've been going to the Keys for 30 years. The crown molding and marble were such nice additions. The 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms made it perfect for my wife and I and our 2 daughters and their husbands. We were all together in a spacious comfortable place, yet we also each had our own space. And I loved the "boat garage", the covered slip under the master bedroom. What a bonus and treat that was!...along with the outside shower, which I have at home, and which made me feel right at home. The daily visits by the Key Deer were adorable, and being so close to the No Name Pub was great. We had their pizza 3 times in a week! We caught some nice yellowtail about 5 miles offshore in only about 50' of water, some cuda at the red marker about 3 miles straight out from the US1 bridge and some nice sharks (2 blacktip and one nurse, all about 4-5' long) in the back country near the Content Keys on the flats and got into a couple of schools of nice jacks near both the Bahia Honda Bridge and the other US1 bridge closer to Big Pine. We also saw a lot of tarpon roll right out by the No Name Key Bridge, and saw one guy jump one, but we couldn't get any of them to bite. Great place, Ann. Thanks for the memories.

Thanks Ann for a Wonderful Summer Vacation. Your Place is Amazing and all the Natives of Big Pine Key are the Friendliest of people that we have ever met. We had a wonderful time fishing, shopping, snorkeling and just enjoying the serenity of the ocean from right outside our door. The Location is just perfect to get away from the every day life of the "Big City". Really enjoyed Key West and all the shops, we took back many Souvenirs. We had Lunch at the No Name Pub everyone really enjoyed the Pizza.
We Hope to return again very soon. Thanks for allowing us to share in your "Ocean Paradise" we truley had a "AMAZING TIME"

We stayed at Ann's place the last week of May 2010, and had a great time! The place is very nice and clean inside. The kitchen is well equipped. Key West is only 40min away, and the Bahia Honda beach is only 5 miles away. We saw the island deer everyday, and several times it came very close to us. The owner is fantastic! We have rented different places in the past, and this was by far the best experience. Thank you Ann!

This is our second stay in Ann's house. (see review from July 09) All photos and information are accurate. Ann is a wonderful owner and very helpful. We stayed here for our first time last summer and were so pleased with the house and location that we came back again this summer. The boat slip under the house is wonderful and our 23 foot center console with "t" tops fit fine. All the neighbors as well as the staff at the Wooden Bridge are so nice, friendly and helpful. Until next year........enjoy!

The house was very comfortable and met all our needs. We enjoyed trips to Bahia Honda, and Key West. It was great to be walking distance to No Name Pub, thought a bit of advice, they're always crowded and you will probably have to wait for seating. We got to pet deers, and feed the birds. Our boys caught a tarpon in the canal, a shovel nose shark off the bridge, and several other small fish. There was a really nice breeze under the house during the afternoons (wished there was a hammock - hint!). Ann was great to work with - overall a great week.
Thanks Ann for sharing your house.

We had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful house for 6 weeks in January and February, 2010. The home is exactly as described, bright, open, airy, brand new, with open water views. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck outside the master bedroom taking in the view (with a nice cold beer!).
We had some unseasonably cold weather the first 2 weeks in January, but enjoyed ourselves despite that! After enduring 2 feet of snow in Northwest Indiana we welcomed the change!
Some highlights: Walking to the No Name Pub for pizza and chicken wings (we especially liked the carribean variety), Bahia Honda State Park, walking on the 7 mile bridge, the Key West Conch Train Tour,dinner at the Square Grouper and shopping at the very convenient Winn Dixie right on Big Pine. Day trips to Key West are easy from this home, and we went there several times. We especailly liked the sunset music cruise on the Fury catamaran out of Key West. And, no matter how many times we see them, we are always amazed at the Key Deer on Big Pine Key!
The home is well stocked, with a new gas grill that we used frequently. We also brought our small boat and were able to launch it easily right on the property.
Perhaps the nicest surprise is how wonderful Ann is. She is a gem! Easy to deal with and so friendly! Full of helpful suggestions on how to make your stay perfect. I recommend this home without hesitation! We will be back!

My husband and I were here in March and this is a great house! It is bright and sunny with a lovely breeze flowing through when you open the windows. The house is clean, well-appointed and comfy with an easy style that lets your vacation mode flow in. It's in a great location with a quick drive to the wonderful Bahia Honda beach and all amenities close by, while enjoying the privacy of your "own home". We toured Key West a couple of times and came home to our place away from the crowds. This is a wonderful rental house! A perfect romantic getaway! The owner, Ann, is very pleasant and helpful.
Great Start for 2009!

Outstanding.. house,location,provisions and Vacation!! We had a group of six stay at this house in Jan 09.. It was such an awesome place and everything we could have wanted was right there! The house was so clean and put together for comfort, just lovely! In the first 5 mins after arriving, we knew we would never want to leave. Thanks to the owner, Ann, she could not have been more helpful!! We rented bikes for a day, rode around looking at Keys, wildlife, had a 19' boat with us and went to Bahia Honda.. beautiful !! Did some fishing, too cold for me to get in the water, 2 friends got in and each got a lobster, we put back... lots of fun for them. Went to Key West for a night.. what a night.. There was plenty to do, see and kept us busy. The best part.. being right at the house fishing off the docks, grilling, enjoying the views and hanging out! Don't think we can wait till next year to come back, plan to be back this summer!! Many,many thanks for the best vacation the 6 of us have ever had!! Kym and company

The house was very clean upon our arrival. Key West is only a 30 min drive. The children enjoyed riding their bikes on the island. The Key Deer were everywhere. The No Name Pub is within walking distance. The food was outstanding. We were very comfortable in the house and the view from the master bedroom and porch are fantastic. We spent the days diving for lobster and the nights fishing from the No Name bridge. We will most definately return!!! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to create such great memories!!!

Big Pine Key is a perfect location if you are looking for a quiet non touristy location and this house is perfect if water access is important. The house has its own boat ramp and covered dock. There is enough room in the house for 6 people to stay very comfortably and each bedroom has its own bath. If you like to Kayak you can launch from the boat ramp and be in beautiful mangroves in a short paddle. If you do not bring your own Kayak there is a rental place just before the No Name Key Bridge. While we were there a manatee visited in the canal which was very cool. We also dove, snorkeled, and brought our bikes. Most of the island streets have bike paths which are paved and flat for easy riding. The house is very clean and has recently been remodeled. The owner is great to deal with and is very helpful. When we return top the Keys next year this house will be tops on our list. If you like to fish or dive there are many charter options in the area. Make sure you speak with the local residents to find the best options. Everyone on the island is very helpful and willing to share their knowledge. Around the corner from the house is the No Name Key Pub which is a must visit. The food is excellent and the decor is priceless. You will understand as soon as you walk in the place. I recommend that anyone looking to relax and have convenient water access check this place out. The only downside was packing to leave.

The house was wonderful!! Beautifully renovated rooms provided a great place for our family to play games, hang out, and eat. We enjoyed the deck overlooking the water and were constantly looking for wildlife!! The property was clean and very comfortable for our family. We enjoyed Bahia Honda State Park, about 5-10 minutes from the house. There were beautiful beaches, stunning views, and great nature trails to walk and look for iguanas! We spent a lot of time down in Key West. There is always something to do and see there. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone! It was perfect to stay a little out from all the action of down town but close enough to go and enjoy! Overall, it was a great vacation with a great location, beautiful weather, and perfect house to stay in!!!!

The house is a real gem. SOOO easy to get to the
Atlantic and to the Gulf. It was absolutely the
easiest access we ever had down there. The boat
slip under the house is totally cool - way better
than just tying up one side the boat. We couldn't
use the boat slip because the boat was just too long
but the ramp we used as 2 minutes away. The
house was totally beautiful. The downstairs is like
an apartment - totally private if you have more than
1 couple visiting. We loved it and RECOMMEND it to
anyone wanting a GREAT Keys Vacation!!!

We had the best time staying at Ann's! The house is so beautiful! Very clean, lots of room, and great location. There was 8 in our crew and plenty of space for all of us. We brought our 35 ft boat and our friend brought his 18ft boat and had plenty of room for both. The boat ramp worked great for the small boat, the 35ft had to be put in a the marina a block away, NO PROBLEM!! The Old Wooden Bridge Marina had ice and fishing tackle when ever we needed. It was very nice being near the main channel that leads to the Atlantic and Gulf. When we were not on the water, hanging at the house was great. The patio was awesome along with the great view. We had the best time every! Ann was so sweet, you will think you have known her your entire life!

The dock was perfect, nice and shady; water access could not have been more convenient. Love the resident tarpon rolling in the canal, day trips to Key West and Bahia Honda, lote of boating adventures. I can';t wait to go back. Julie

To say my family and I had a wonderful time on our Keys vacation is an understatement. The home was beautiful, clean and exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect, as it is only about 30 minutes from Key West and a short boat trip from my favorite snorkeling/diving location (Looe Key Reef). Big Pine also is home to the Key Deer Refuge and you only have to look off the balcony to see Key Deer, Tarpon, Marine Iguanas, etc... and a short drive will take you to see the wild peacock that roam the island. We also enjoyed some great fishing during our stay. We will definitely be back!!

I really enjoyed my stay in Big Pine. The house was beautiful, as was the location. Tarpon rolling in the canal is always a nice thing to wake up to and come home to!
Fishing in the Gulf and Ocean was great- managed a load of snapper and a few grouper as well! The proximity to Key West was also great, and we took two trips to Key West for the day and took the short ride back to peace by evening!
Thanks again, will certainly recommend your home to friends and family!

Just a quick note to tell you how pleased my entire family and myself were with your home.
Being that close to the open water was just perfect for our boating needs.
The accomodations exceeded our expectations, the house was very clean and comfortable for all 6 of us.
The location was convenient yet secluded.
I certainly would refer friends and family to you for their future vacation needs as well, we will plan to return next year ourselves.
