ABOUT OUR LOCATION:

We are located on Big Pine Key, and our home is directly on the Atlantic Ocean with close access to the Gulf of Mexico.

Big Pine Key is one of the largest Keys and home to endangered key deer. You will often see them roaming freely throughout the island. Much of the island is federally protected wildlife habitat, off-limits to development. A close-knit, small-town community works conscientiously to protect the local environment, and people are drawn to this area for its unspoiled beauty. It's the perfect place for sight seeing, exploring nature, relaxing and fishing. At the end of our street is a marina with a place to dock your boat, arrange for charter boats, and rent kayaks.

The lower keys are known for excellent fishing and snorkeling. Big Pine Key is the closest point to the famous Looe Key, known for it's fabulous coral reef, and a great area for snorkeling & diving! You can take dive tours or glass bottom boat rides over the coral reef. Miles of beautiful coral reef are waiting to be explored!

We are just minutes from Bahia Honda State Park which was voted the 2nd best beach in America.

We are also located just thirty minutes from Key West where you can enjoy shopping, night life on wild Duval Street, historic tours & sites, and fine dining. During the day visit Historic sites & tour the oldest homes as well as the famous Hemingway house. Enjoy fine dining or dock side bars. Browse some of the most interesting & unique shops in Old Town Key West. And, you can't miss the memorable Sunset Celebration on Mallory Square. Every night at sunset catch the local entertainers, juggle, eat fire, swallow swords, and tell fortunes while watching the best view of the sunset in the world!

For transportation arrangements, please note we are 2.5 hours by car from the Miami Airport and 27 miles from the Key West Airport.

The ocean is waiting for you!

About Greg Ruis

Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and we have enjoyed visiting family and friends in Big Pine Key, FL, for many years. We love vacationing at our oceanfront home in this beautiful area on the Ocean.

Why Greg Ruis chose Big Pine Key

This is a quiet serene place to enjoy nature. The ocean breeze at this home makes it a pleasure to sit on the covered porch and relax. Snorkeling is fantastic at Looe key, which is a short kayak ride away. With the private dock and fish cleaning table, this home is a fisherman's dream!

Comfortable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this cozy home! They house was very comfortable for our party of 5, with ample seating inside and out. It was a joy to watch the deer, crabs, iguanas, and birds that frequented the property daily. The house is close to everything, while also feeling away from it all! The owner, Greg, was also very quick to respond when we had any questions or cocerns. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Loved Ocean Breze!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Ocean Breeze and it was exactly the kind of place we were looking for. Private, quiet, great neighborhood away from busy areas but still convenient to town, on the water with a nice view, comfy beds, decorated very nicely, very clean. Everything was exactly as described. And the deer visiting us on the patio was really cool! It's obvious that Greg and Carri have taken great care to make sure everything is to high standards. We loved it and hope we can come back !

What a special place.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage looked exactly like the photos, which is extremely cute and comfy. But the sense of outdoor space was also very appealing, absolutely private and quiet. The key deer visited us regularly as well as a neighborhood cat which we loved. The deer were very friendly and we became quite attached to number one (some of the deer are collared so they can monitor them). We had a couple of minor things happen but Carrie and Greg were very prompt in response which we appreciated. We were first timers to the Keys and found we liked the lower Keys. We enjoyed The Square Grouper for dinner/happy hour, No Name Pub for lunch, and the Galley Grill for breakfast, where they have outstanding fare in a modest setting. In Key West we dined at Blue Heaven along with the chickens. Despite the February crowds, we managed to see most everything we hoped to. I found myself becoming quite attached to Big Pine Key, really off the beaten path a bit and very laid back. Thank you Carrie and Greg!

Wildlife Abounds!

  • 5 of 5

This get away on Big Pine Key has much to offer: beautiful open water view, close encounters with Key deer, iguanas and wide variety of birds, privacy on the sunny or shady porch. The location is perfect if you are looking for the peace and quiet of the lower Keys. It is a quick walk to rent a kayak at Big Pine Key Adventures or lunch at No Name Pub. The home is comfortable and kitchen well equipped. Hope to visit again soon!
