    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Just five short streets (4 canals) away is the No Name Pub. World famous and the best Pizza around and patrons from around the world have decorated the walls and ceilings with “personalized” dollar bills. The Pub will provide crayons and a stapler so you can hang your bills.

    On Big Pine Key; Coco’s cantina, at the Winn Dixie center, basically Cuban food, and the Big Pine coffee shop next to the Post Office.

    On Little Torch Key, at MM 28.5 is Parrotdise Waterfront Bar and Grille. Tropically decorated, clean, a good menu and a full bar. You have a view of pine channel thru the large windows and once a month the full moon rise over the Atlantic is spectacular.

    On Cudjo Key, at MM 22.5 is the Square Grouper. This is a “must visit” restaurant in the Lower Keys. They serve excellent sea food. Beer and wine only at the bar and if you don’t like waiting, get there early.

    Aside from art and history, Key West of course has many restaurants ranging from dece...

The house is clean, well stocked with items needed for cooking and in a great location. From a fishing standpoint, the house is perfect for what we need. Capt Ron is very accommodating and more than... more

Loved this place very clean and peaceful would definitely go back!!! The key deer were amazing, came right into the yard, so cute. Canal right behind the house perfect to have a boat. It feels out of the way but it is still close enough to attractions the keys have to offer. more
