The kitchen is fully equipped and features stainless steel appliances. There is also a large island for preparing meals or additional seating. If you prefer more formal dining, there is seating for six at the table in the adjoining dining room. The master bedroom is outfitted with a queen bed, a 32 inch HDTV, walk-in closet and private en suite.

For boating lovers, several boat ramps are close by. Excellent fishing, diving and snorkeling in the Gulf or the Atlantic. Perfect for peaceful kayaking, paddle-boarding, bicycling and walking. Public tennis, volleyball and basketball courts are close by. A visit to Key West is definitely worthwhile and it takes only 25 minutes to get there. Conveniently close to Winn-Dixie and other shops, and Bahia Honda State Park (one of the finest beaches in North America). You will find yourself adapting to nature's rhythm very quickly and will not want to leave this fisherman's paradise.

About Greg and Michele

We bought a vacation home in Big Pine to be able to relax and enjoy the Florida Keys atmosphere! We have decided to share our Sunsplash getaway with others. We hope you get as much enjoyment from it as we do, and make our place your vacation destination for years to come.

Greg and Michele purchased this house in 2013

Why Greg and Michele chose Big Pine Key

You will love the beautiful canal view and all there is to offer in the area such as great fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, water sports, shopping, local restaurants or just hanging out. The Winn Dixie grocery store is a five minute drive away. Coupon Bight Aquatic Preserve and Bahia Honda State Park are both nearby attractions. There is nothing like the laid back atmosphere of the Keys to make it your vacation destination. Relax at one of the many open air restaurants such as Boondocks and have a cold drink and a great meal while watching a spectacular sunset or if you prefer inside dining try Square Grouper Bar & Grill.

What makes this house unique

The Big Pine Key area offers much to do and much to explore. It is far enough away from the 'big city life' which makes it far less congested and more 'natural' than the Upper Keys, yet it is still close enough to the 'Southernmost Point of the United States', Key West, to enjoy a multitude of opportunities for both fine and casual dining, nightlife, shopping and outdoor activities for all members of your family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely home for our family vacation. We made some terrific memories here on Big Pine Key. We visited all the Keys from Marathon to Key West during our stay. There was a five point buck in the yard when we arrived! We enjoyed the lobster season, diving at Looe Key, and fishing for Mahi Mahi. We hope to be able to come back and visit soon!

Warm and smiling

  • 5 of 5

Sunsplash was a very comfortable, exceptionally clean and sunny home to spend a great vacation. There were 5-6 of us and the home absorbed all of us so easily. Close to both Bahia Honda State Park for beach days as well as opportunities for snorkeling, fishing and other day trips. We loved being on the canal and only wish we had our own boat to explore the waters nearby -- next time. Big Pine Key is relatively quiet with the Key Deer Refuge and there are lovely walking trails and bike paths too. Some eclectic local and very tasty restaurants added to the fun as well!

Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our Winter Getaway at Sunsplash. We had a wonderful winter in Greg and Michele's beautiful, clean and well kept home. It definitely is a turn key home and has everything you need for a most enjoyable stay. We especially loved all the space we had in the closets and in the empty cabinet drawers in the bedrooms and the kitchen. We have rented in the Keys for many years but this was our first year at Sunsplash. The owners have a hands on approach to renting this property which more owners of rental properties should have. They truly care and see to it that you have everything you need to make your stay perfect. They were a delight to work with. Sunsplash is close to everything you need without having to travel to other Keys. We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return this coming Winter.

Great Vacation - Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Booked Sunsplash in March, stayed in April. Greg & Michele tag-teamed the email correspondence and were back to us within minutes on everything. Couldn't ask for any better on booking logistics & questions.

The place itself is immaculate and very spacious. Kitchen is big and opens to the dinning area and family room. Fans throughout made it very comfortable. There were 7 of us (me, wife, in-laws, & 3 kids) and it never felt crowded.

Location was perfect for what we were looking to do. Very deep canal access directly into Pine Chanel & Newfound Harbor. Had a 23' center console and was out to Looe Key within 25 minutes or Gulf side within 45 minutes. We snorkeled, swam, fished, & relaxed in the crystal clear, warm waters of the Keys. Next time the kids will be old enough to dive! When the winds picked up we simply went to Picnic Island close by or made the journey around to the Gulf side where miles of endless sand bars & mangroves to explore await the kids. Key West is a short drive in for a day trip and Bahia Honda Park is definitely worth a visit. This was one of the best vacations we've taken and Sunsplash was a perfect place for us.

Big Pine Sunsplash rental arrival on Jan. 12, 2015 for Fishing Fools

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house for a long term rental for 7 weeks. The house was immaculate upon arrival and everything was in great working order. We had our boat at the dock and enjoyed being able to get out to the open water in a short time. We also did a lot of biking and enjoyed seeing all the key deer every time we rode. One day we had the pleasure of seeing at least 10 and took some great pictures. The nearby pubs and restaurants were also good. We especially enjoyed No Name Pub & Springers which we rode to on our bikes. Boondocks,The Warf and Loo Key were also good. Take a ride to Marathon Key for more variety and if it rains their movie theatre is a must. Also, we went to Key West a few times as it has a lot to see. Enjoy your trip to the Keys as it is great.

Family fun!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about our Christmas vacation at Sunsplash. We booked with short notice, and Greg and Michele were able to accommodate us with absolutely no problem at all. They answered every email of mine within minutes.

We were visiting my parents in Big Pine, and the location was perfect! I don't think I would want to stay in any other key. Sunsplash was ample size for my family of 4, and more than enough space to host family members as they came to visit. It was spotless and ready for our arrival. The only thing that would have been a convenient addition would be a hose on the dock for fresh water rinsing of the fish table (and dock)

Our family wouldn't hesitate to return for a second. In fact, my girls are begging me to book it over Easter!

Owner's Response: So nice to hear that you and your family had a great stay at Sunsplash and got some much needed R&R. What a great place to spend the Christmas holiday - away from all the chaos! We will look into your suggestion for adding a fresh water hookup at the dock. Thank you for the wonderful review and for being such great guests! We would love to have you back with us again!
