Waterfront Big Pine Key vacation home in Pine Channel Estates with kitchen
About the home:
We’d love to share our home with you. Our salt water canal front property is located in Pine Channel Estates, a sought-after quiet location of Big Pine Key, less than 5 minutes boat ride to Pine Channel, only a few blocks from US1, tackle shops, and the market. This spacious and clean 3 bedroom / 2 bath stilted (1 king, 2 queen beds) home has 1444 sq ft of living space with independent split A/C units and sits on a clean deep-water canal with a 75 ft concrete dock. It has a screened porch to enjoy fresh air while keeping the bugs out or you can do the same under A/C from its visually pleasing full-length windows overlooking the canal. Home is bright and has a wraparound walkway. It is tiled all throughout and sleeps 6 adults.

About the property:
The master bedroom features a king bed with attached bathroom. The other two guest bedrooms have a queen bed in both. In the spacious dining area, you can enjoy dinner while overlooking the dock and canal area. Enjoy a spacious kitchen with full size washer and dryer. The dining table can accommodate six with extra room for three more at the kitchen counter. Enjoy movies on a 70” flat screen TV in the living room with high-speed Internet. There is ample parking and space to accommodate a boat trailer. The house has a covered balcony all around where you can pull up a chair and enjoy your favorite view of the night sky.

A picnic table and lounge chairs are available on property, along with a two single person kayaks, a storage closet with a bait freezer. There is a fish cleaning table with running water to clean your catch – remember to poke the eyes and fish stomach with a knife so that carcasses do not float back up the following day and sting up the neighborhood. This clean canal excellent to take a dip and relax – be mindful of boat traffic.

While we have some toiletries and pantry items for our personal use, please plan on supplying your own. Please be mindful of the bait freezer and its use by keeping the area clean. *Boat on dock and skiff are not available for rent or use. 28-day minimum stay to comply with County Ordinance. New state-of-the-art hospital Fishermen’s Community Hospital 20 mins away in Marathon, open 24 hours.

Location:
The property is centrally located in Big Pine Key (100 miles south of Miami) where everything is only a short drive away, from great fishing to your favorite watersport. A large portion of the key sits on a Natural Preserve, the only place in the keys home to ‘key deer’. The key deer is a smaller version of the white tail deer and they are protected. You may see some when you take a drive to famous No Name Pub, one of the keys oldest bars – a good restaurant as well. World famous Key West with its eateries and bars is only 40 minutes away, the U.S. southernmost point is also at Key West. Bahia Honda State Park with a beautiful white sandy beach is only 10 minutes away – a state park pass is available for your enjoyment. There is outstanding Tarpon fishing around the Bahia Honda bridge. The calm bay is excellent for all sorts of water activities. The famous Little Palm Island resort is about 10-15 minutes boat ride out with a wonderful fish sanctuary just south of it. Further south from Little Palm Resort is Looe Key, a natural reef where you can find one of the keys’ best snorkeling with its crystal-clear waters and abundance of curious fish – go early to beat the crowds. You may also head north on Pine Channel (careful with shallow banks) and explore the quietness of the backcountry – great to explore some in kayak (two single rider kayaks provided), life vest required by law. There are also bars accessible by ocean such as Kiki’s Sandbar where you can enjoy waterfront dining and great views of the channel. If you don’t feel like taking the boat out, just walk to the end of the street for beautiful sunsets or to watch the deer as they come out at dusk and night. They are also out early in the morning at sunrise.

How to get to Big Pine Key, Florida:
There are two international airports that you can fly into; either Key West International which is approximately 30 miles South of Big Pine Key or Miami International which is approximately 100 miles North. If you decide to fly into Miami International Airport and drive the 100 miles through to The Florida Keys, expect the travel time to be approximately 3 hours. There is only one road access to the keys US1 (Overseas Highway) that goes through the chain of keys with a speed limit of 45 to 55 the majority of the way and sometimes 35 if you are driving through Big Pine Key at night. Although the trip will take you some time, it will be a very breathtaking trip as you pass through the different keys with great ocean views. Be sure to make some stops at the different gift stores that we have, i.e. Shell World in Key Largo, Lunch at Key Largo Fisheries in Marathon, the Lobster Rueben is delicious and don't forget to get a piece of Key Lime Pie for dessert. As you make your way thru Marathon, there is a Publix Grocery Store & a Kmart if you need to stop for any necessities, fishing license, etc. There is also a Winn Dixie Grocery store just down from your rental too. As you enter into Big Pine Key, please be careful of the Key Deer as they do roam the key freely.
Staying at the Florida Keys will be a memorable experience for the entire family. Look no further our home and its location will not disappoint! Bring your boat if you have one!
Additional recommended activities:
1. Try no-name pub, in Big Pine. It’s a restaurant/bar that’s a local landmark, one of the oldest in the keys. Plan ahead, usually have to wait to be seated.
2. The snorkel charter off of Ships Way is a good family attraction blocks from your rental.
3. The Turtle Hospital in Marathon is an organization that rehabs injured sea turtles and return them to their natural habitat. Here you can find educational sessions and see their residents in rehab.
4. North of Big Pine Key 30 mins away in Marathon, there is the Florida Keys Aquarium encounters - nice outing with the family.
5. The Square grouper restaurant in Cudjoe Key is nice but a bit on the pricy side, great for dining in with the family, great food. Tonio’s seafood is a great choice and more economic along with other options in the area.
6. Veterans Memorial Park is a public beach nice to check out, beyond Bahia Honda State Park.
7. Sunsets are nice at the end of the road overlooking the bay.
8. The canal is nice to swim at, it is deep at about 25 feet in the center. Swim at your own risk, supervise minors. Turn the ladder over at the dock to get back up. Tarpon cruise the canal all the time.
9. Key West is a nice 35-40 min drive away, south.
10. The blue hole is a small freshwater preserve/pond in the middle of big pine. You may spot Florida alligators and local wildlife and birds.
11. Horseshoe Beach is a hidden gem in a natural setting, rocky, and a nice place to snorkel. It’s an old quarry filled with saltwater with nice marine life.
12. Kayak to the end of the canal at the back of the property and the adjacent mangroves, be mindful of current underneath the bridge.
