About Joan Thoman

I originally came from long island, New York. I have been living in Florida 30 years. I started my vacation rental in 1992.

I am a retired high school teacher and I have a Masters captain license from The US Coast Guard.

Why Joan Thoman chose Big Pine Key

Because it's located in the beautiful Florida Keys and it's on a canal ware you can bring your boat right to your back door.

Great place and fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came down to the keys and stayed here and it was a great time. The owners were very nice and great to talk to. The house was very clean and the beds were more comfortable than most hotel beds. The decor made me feel cozy but also like a beautiful island was right outside. We had an issue with the Internet at one point, asked the owners about it, and within an hour everything was taken care of. We put our boat in the canal and had easy access to the ocean from there. We all had the best time ever while vacationing there. We even saw a key deer walk through the yard! Next time I go down to the keys I'll definitely be booking here again!

Horrible Experience! The Owners Were Rude!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here last year and not only was the house in a state of disrepair and the beds were uncomfortable. I had bedbug bites all over my ankles!

Beautiful,favorite memories are at this place

  • 5 of 5

I've been going here since I was 7 with my family. My favorite and best memories are at this place. Stores are near by, including seeing the key deer, and no name pub. Boat access in the back yard, quiet, safe. Great place to be, highly recommended
