This is a great place if you like peace and quiet, the ocean, shore birds, stars and key deer. Don't go if you want 5 star accommodations. It's a funky, keys B&B with wonderful breakfast and perfect location only 30 miles from Key West and 4 miles from a beautiful beach. Free use of bikes, kayaks and more.

The stench from the seaweed strewn beach was overpowering. The area surrounding the actual accommodations looked like a junkyard. The owners live in a trailer on the property and during our 8 night stay in Jan. 2014 (we booked before we knew the conditions, unfortunately), there was no evidence that the owner did any repairs or maintenance. Chairs were rusted;... More

My wife and I stayed here for six days in January 2014. We stayed in the Ocean Room, a quirkily decorated throwback to the 1970's, which included a shower head as a substitute for a bathroom sink faucet. The room itself opened out onto a beach area and had a nice outside sitting area. That said, the whole place seemed... More

If your ever in big pine key and you love that comfortable at home feeling you have to stay here... the rooms have an open air feeling and feel more like a small apartment in the tropics. The views are absolutely stunning and its one of the best breakfasts I've had on my trip... highly recommended!

Barnacles is located in a quiet area of beautiful Big Pine Key. It was fun to watch the key deer walk thru the small beach. The upper deck is a wonderful place to sit & relax anytime day or night. The beach was a perfect place to enjoy a bon fire. But you needed to find your own firewood. Our... More

Paradise Lost Years ago I would spend my vacation every year in the Keys at The Barnacle. The original Builders/Owners managed the property. The buildings were kept fresh and clean on the inside and the décor was interesting and tasteful. The grounds outside were beautifully landscaped and groomed. All amenities were functional and available. A usable boat ramp and dockage... More

Stayed here in October, what a great location! Enjoyed ourselves immensely, the key deer are very interesting. Being served breakfast on the balcony every morning was wonderful, and star gazing from the roof top at night was amazing. Thank-you Eric!

This is the place to stay if you don't want to deal with the problems in Key west. It was quiet and secluded, yet convenient. We stayed her for 3 days in February 2013. The place isn't perfect, but it was clean and friendly. The worse part is the smell from the ocean weeds, but it's not there all the... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at The Barnacle in July. Loved the place and the peace and quiet was another great perk. Eric and Tia made us feel very welcomed and made sure we had everything we needed. Eric is a great cook and breakfast was always an enjoyment too. We even met the owners (Eric's parents) and... More

We loved this place! Granted, we are folks who enjoy camping and nature. Eric is awesome and cooks a great, from scratch, breakfast. The views are fantastic. Key Deer, Iguanas and all sorts of awesome birds abound. It's the Keys so bugs and sea weed are what they are. We thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary Kayaks (bikes too but we never... More
