My hubby and I along with sister and bro-in-law had the best time. This cottage is quaint and very clean and has everything you could possibly need. They thought of everything. We hated to leave this place. Our memories will be of all the fun we had from Key West to Islamorada. The key deer were so adorable and friendly. You could tell they were used to humans. The water views were amazing!! SO BEAUTIFUL!!...

My husband and I came to Big Pine Key for a second honeymoon. We immediately fell in love with the house and the atmosphere. Very clean and cozy! We had a fantastic time and will definitely go back. Captain Ron is awesome and makes sure your stay is perfect!

If you like being surrounded by exotic wildlife you'll love this comfortable home located right on the canal with water access.All the amenities necessary to enjoy your visit.Located in a quiet community and off the beaten path.Still only 30 minutes from Key West and Bahia Honda State Park is right up the road next to the old 7 Mile Bridge.
