Captain Ron's Tropical Vacation Hideaway - Viisit Paradise

Captain Ron's Tropical Vacation Hideaway - Viisit Paradise

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 15, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 4 Sleeps

This waterfront stilt home is on a boating canal just five minutes at idle speed from Boggie Chanel, with imediate access to the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico. The home is decorated to give you a resort feeling, with tropical and nautical style decorations and nautical signage to designate areas. Smoking is allowed on the porch, deck and grounds. No smoking in the house please. 2012 will welcome my sixth HoneyMoon couple. The area is quiet and relaxing. Key Deer roam through the property daily. These deer are miniature copies of the deer one might find in the woods of North Carolina. They are protected and very docile. Their favorite food seems to be the plants and flowers of the homes in the neghiborhood. In the nearby woods there are Iguana's that take a walk down the seawall each day. The largest at present is about five feet long. Bring your camera. The home has central air conditioning and heating and ceiling fans.

Great escape from the Great White North

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a wonderful month at Captain Ron's Hideaway. It is all it is advertised as. Clean, up to date, with a well stocked kitchen. Set in a quiet neighbourhood, it is within walking distance of the No Name Pub. Kayaking out to the channel can be accessed from the canal in the back, or access to a shallow bay on the other side of the key can be accessed just down the street. Key deer are everywhere! The key is great to exsplore by bike, as there are many dedicated bike lanes. Take your GPS and hike the unmarked trails of No Name Key. There is an old quarry where you can pick up some fossilized coral as souvenirs. A nice touch supplied by Captain Ron is the day pass to the state parks (their are a few on the mid to lower keys). Particularly enjoyed the self guided hike at Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological State Park. In Marathon, Sombrero beach at the end of Sombrero Beach Road is a much less crowded spot to enjoy the afternoon enjoying the sun and sand. Thanks Ron! It was nice to escape the snow this year.

Owner's Response: These travelers from "the Great White North", discovered just about everything there is to see or do in Big Pine Key.

If exploring is not your thing, one of my guests prefer to simply bask in the sun on the south facing screened porch and recover from the cold of the north.

I appreciate the reviews from guests that confirm that the "hideaway" is as advertized.

It was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Captain Ron's place! Everything we needed was there and easy to find. All was clean and comfortable. We especially liked the fact that there was both an open deck and a screened porch. With two teenagers who like to move, the kayak and bikes were great, as well as the proximity to beaches, snorkeling, and Key West. The key deer walked past us every day and the huge iguanas relaxed with us. If we ever make it to the keys in the future, we will definitely stay here again. It was perfect for us!

Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Captain Ron's has everything we needed. The location was exactly right, providing easy access to Key West and Marathon. The house is better than described and has everything to make it a home. Sitting on the deck in the mornings and late afternoons was marvelously relaxing. As FL natives, we appreciated the screen porch for those hours when the skeeters were divebombing. We can't wait to go back! (Don't miss the kayaking tours leaving from Old Wooden Breidge marina... )

Thanks Captain Ron for making our stay in the Keys perfect.

The house and amenities were just as described. We could not have asked for a nicer home away from home.

A Great Place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at Captain Ron's for three years in a row and have been amazed at how cooperative and extremely accomodating Captain Ron has been. He is close by and responds to any need concerning the house. It is comfortable and well located for walking and biking. It is close to the shopping center and convenient to Key West. It is very family friendly as well as being suitable for retirees or a romantic get away. It is a great deal and we would definitely recommend it!

This is ideal for just about anyone. The house was nice, clean and very accommodating. Everything was provided, except the food, I hugely over prepared. Very private and quiet. You can relax and have your coffee on the screened in porch. If you have a boat, it is right there, just out your door. Easy access to both the Gulf and Atlantic. Tarpon, dolphin and rays are almost always spotted. If you like to dive, Looe Key is a must. The Key deer travel through the property a couple times a day while the iguana's were a little shy but did show themselves a couple of times. No Name Pub is within walking distance, their pizza is very good. Winn Dixie is at the light on A1A so if you forget something, not a problem. Enjoy your stay, we will be back!

Location

Activity and Interests

This section of Big Pine Key is quiet and made for relaxing. I get comments on how quiet it can be.

In addition to "standard" vacations, This home has hosted wedding parties and in 2012 my sixth honeymoon couples. ROMANTIC

Children (and some adults) like to brightly paint lobster trap floats (I provide floats and paint).

The artistic efforts of past visitors are displayed around the property. You may display your art or take it with you when you depart.

However, if you like fishing, boating, water sports, etc. you are in the right place. Bait, tackle, gas, etc. are available at the Old Wooden Bridge Marina, accessable by boat or street. Don't forget your FREE boat launch at the marina.

If you like great restaurants and night life, Key West is just minutes away. Check out the

activities listed at the house.

The world famous "No Name Pub" is just five streets away. Bring a few extra one dollar bills to decorate the walls and ceiling there. The current estimate of hanging dollar bills is 40 to 50 thousand. Take your guess while waiting for the best Pizza in the keys.

On the next Key is a waterfront restaurant called "Parrotdise". This second floor eatery overlooks pine chanel and Big Pine Key. A table by the east facing large windows is a must during the rise of the full moon.
