About Kristin

I am on active duty in the Coast Guard and have been for 14 years. I love the keys and everything they have to offer.

Kristin purchased this house in 2007

Why Kristin chose Lower Florida Keys

We bought this house and lived in it while we were stationed in Key West and decided to keep it to share with others after we transferred.

What makes this house unique

I love going into Key West to catch some shows at sunset pier or take a ride up to Islamorada to do some shopping and check out the restaurants. There are tons of places to rent jet skis or boats and spend the day on the water.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and maintained house in super convenient location. Close to Key West, Bahia Honda and many other Keys sites. Lovely sunsets. Very close to highway, but set back so you don't hear noise. Will definitely return!

Spacious, comfortable and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the house from June 28 to July 28. The booking process worker well, and owners always responded quickly to our questions before arrival. On arrival, we were pleasantly surprised, the house is better than the photos on the listing, much brighter, and a new deck had just been added. The house was spacious, comfortable and well equipped, including 2 kayaks, linens, and towels. We put the kayaks to good use, paddling on the canal, which we were surprised to find to was blocked off from the ocean; but you can portage the kayaks over the little dam. The canal is clean( swimable) and full of fish, including some sizable snook and tarpon, which were great to watch with the underwater lights at night. The lack of direct ocean access proved to be a plus for us, as it made us launch our boat from the many free boat ramps available in the various keys, so we were able to explore a much wider area. We enjoyed walking through the many residential streets in the evenings to see the gorgeous sunsets and the key deers grazing everywhere. As well, we used our bicycles to see the backroads of nearby keys, and sampled the coffee and pastries all along the way.

All told, a month flew by. We had a great time, and enjoyed staying at this house. We would recommend it to others.

Perfect, Excellent, and Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were great to deal with during the brief rental procedure. The house is in a great location with no US 1 noise, and nice neighbors too. It was completely ready when we arrived, spotless, and everything worked perfectly. Big Pine Restaurant is very close and has a nice reasonably priced menu. Springers (at the curve) is another good one and has live music some nights and a bluegrass jam on Mondays. Nearby dive shops will run you out to nearby Looe Key reef or a couple of wrecks for some of the best snorkeling or SCUBA in the country. We had a great time and look forward to next year!

Great location, comfortable vacay home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. You can walk or bike easily to many spots. To the Big Pine Key Farmers market on weekends; to winn dixie; to eateries such as Keys Cuisine and two pizza places. also very nearby "Blue Hole Refuge"; Key Deer Refuge Park services which offer a large variety of free area nature walks. From this house you are 25 minutes from the center of Key West and about 15 minutes to Bahia Honda .. one of the best state beaches in Florida. Here you can swim, bask, bike, canoe, kayak, picnic, or just meander. the property is well maintained - we especially loved the outdoor shower as well as the screen porch overlooking the canal. Kris the owner was very responsive to all our needs.

Owner's Response: Carol, We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Big Pine! The "Blue Hole Refuge” is definitely one of our favorite places for walking on Big Pine Key. The outdoor shower was a recent upgrade, I’m glad you liked it! I hope you think of us in the future when you return to the Keys.

Feb 2013 Keys Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent 28 very enjoyable days here. BPK was a wonderful, laid back key to spend our time, not too far from Key West or Marathon. Kristin was great to deal with and always responded to our questions quickly. The house was very comfortable, everything we needed was there and the sunsets from the lanai were gorgeous. We highly recommend getting a pizza at the No Name Pub. Thank you for allowing the use of their house.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Except for internet connectivity problems at first , our stay was perfect. The owner of this property is a real jewel and with her help we were able to sort out the internet problem. We recommend the Tuesday 4-7 PM happy hour at Looe Key TIki Bar (MM27)- excellent entertainment, a friendly crowd, the hardest working bartenders I have ever seen, and incredibly low prices. Weather was great, the beach at Sombrero (MM50- Marathon) is superb). The place is perfect for 2 or 4 people, a bit small for larger families.

Owner's Response: Richard, I’m glad we were able to get the internet straightened out! Sombrero Beach is beautiful, a great place to float around and plenty of picnic tables. I hope you will think of us for future trips to the Keys!
