A Charming 2/2 on a crystal-clear Canal with Open Water Views - Calming and Comfortable

"If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments." – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

A Gift from the Sea is a charming well-designed, ground level home comfortable for 4-6 guests. The décor and wall colors were selected to be soothing after a long day enjoying all there is to do on the water or playing tourist.

Your vacation home is three lots in from the open water on a crystal-clear canal that’s perfect for swimming or just watching as you sit on the back porch with a good book.

The galley style kitchen is well equipped for preparing the catch of the day or admiring on your way out the door as you enjoy a meal in one of the local’s spots within a short drive or walk.

The den and dining room encompass one large space that’s perfect for watching cable on the flat panel television or just relaxing. From the sectional sofa you can watch the ever-changing sunsets the keys are famous for.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, ensuite bathroom, a walk-in closet and its own flat panel television.

The guest bedroom has a comfortable queensize and a walk in closet. In the living room there is a hide-a-bed that makes up in seconds. Two full baths round out the floor plan.

There’s 75 feet of seawall to dock your boat, a fish cleaning station on the water, covered parking for your car and plenty of room for your boat trailer right on the lot.

A thank you to Lynne and Alan for a magnificent and eventful week. Nice job on the home – all that we needed, except more time. I’m sad to leave.

Sitting and eating at the little table on the porch was a definite favorite.

They thought of everything!

My husband and I greatly appreciated Lynne and Alan's attention to detail. They could not have been more responsive, and they have really thought of everything you could need to have a great vacation in their home. They make you feel like part of the family, and have terrific local connections and recommendations, having lived in the Keys for many years themselves. The house is a cool oasis from the Florida heat, with a sun porch that's ideal for lounging after a day at the beach or by the canal that runs past the house. The swimming is excellent, the surrounding neighborhood is very nice and friendly, and we could not have felt more at home. Perfect place for a family (we took our baby) or one or two couples. Book this house--you will not be disappointed!

We love Big Pine Key we have been going there for over fifteen years. Since retirement we have been staying the entire Month of February. To start with the weather was outstanding for the entire month. We had the windows open no air conditioning or heat was needed. We had a clean fresh ocean breeze blowing through the home both day and night. This was our first time to stay in this home and we were very pleased with our decision. We loved the ground level ranch home no stairs to climb and from the carport or living room sofa we could watch the outstanding sunsets over the Gulf every evening. Big Pine is a quiet island for the most part a great place to relax and enjoy the fishing and diving. When we wanted a little more excitement we would head to Key West or great shopping in Marathon. We liked our stay so much the we booked it for February 2012. I think we have found our February home for every February.

Airport 30 miles away in Key West or Marathon Our goal in setting up your vacation rental was comfort for our guests and to provide the things we would expect if we were renting a vacation home. The house is about twelve hundred square feet under central air and heat. One thing that sets our property apart, besides its great location, is that it's a ground level home with a carport. If you have vacationed in the Keys you know how many stairs there are when carrying in the groceries, your knees will thank you for this home. We wanted folks to come in and not have to buy everything so we provide simple things that add up. You will find dish detergent and dishwasher detergent. Trash bags and food storage bags. There is a washer and dryer and we provide laundry products for those. Alan and I have owned a timeshare for twenty years so we know what it is to go to a home away from home. Even Martha Stewart would approve, we bought her fully stocked spiral spice rack. The house is tiled throughout. Has a nice screened porch over looking the canal with a paved walkway leading to it. No shoes, yea! The beds are new Serta's, one king and one queen. There are two new flat screen TV's and DVD players with them. We bought the most comfortable sink-into sectional sofa we could find. I made the curtains for all of the windows, they are a lovely shell print. We had a lot of fun trying to anticipate all the things our guests would need. So from coffee maker, to blender, cookie sheets, towels and sheets we think we've got you covered. Please feel free to contact us.
