The Space

Get off Duval and experience natural Florida Keys! My house is located in a quiet neighborhood on Big Pine Key on an acre lot and the three lots adjacent to mine are owned by the Department of Environmental Protection and so will never be developed. Lots of wildlife can be viewed, including key deer, box turtles, lizards, geckos, snakes, and many species of birds. There are also lots of places to go nearby for bike rides and long walks. I am a biologist and I’d gladly talk to you about the local wildlife.
I have two rooms to rent out. This listing is for the flower room, but check out the bamboo room in my other listing. The flower room has a full sized bed. The two rooms share a bathroom; I have my own. You are welcome to use the fridge, cook in the kitchen, and use the laundry facilities, but keep in mind that I live there too, so please clean up after yourself. Available to you are my spices, condiments, and other basics like sugar and olive oil. I will provide bagels, bread for toast, and coffee for my guests to prepare at their leisure. You are also welcome to borrow my two bikes, two kayaks and a kit to transport them (fits most cars), 2 beach chairs, two yoga mats, and snorkel gear for a medium sized woman. Although I am not on a canal, there is plenty of room in the yard for a boat/trailer. * I fully intend to return deposit, but it's just in case I need to replace something due to carelessness (without I have no recourse). Lastly, I've had a few complaints about the AC being noisy, so that's something to consider if you are a very light sleeper.

  • This place in the Keys is like a paradise. We founded a beautiful and clean home. A Little Bit of wilderness, Key Deers on the road, turtels in the garden an a Lot of birds in the trees.
    Kerry our host was very friendly and gave us many tips for trips. It was a great stop during our Florida Trip.
    Thank you so match, Kerry

  • Kerry is one of the sweetest hosts I've met! She was hospitable, expedient at communicating, and totally accommodating to my pregnant girlfriend. Her house is big, artistically decorated, cozy as home, and quiet with a tropical front porch. Other guests were friendly and interesting over morning coffee. I heartily recommend her accommodations! And don't skip Big Pine if you love nature. As a former resident of Islamorada it's my favorite Key!

  • Had a great experience staying with Kerry in the Keys. Beautiful house to enjoy all the natural beauty of the island. The porch was a great place to relax after a day at the beach. Would highly recommend staying here.

  • We had a great stay at Kerrys place. She is a relaxed and easy going person with a very nice home especially as we could use the kitchen which gave us a break from eating out on our tour of Florida. We enjoyed the house, the room as well as the location on Big Pine Key - you feel you really are on the Keys yet not the hectic Key West, but still an easy drive. The nearby No Name Pub and biking around on the bikes we borrowed from Kerry made the stay feel local and meeting other people renting Kerrys other room was nice.

About
I am a marine biologist living in the Florida Keys. I love it down here and recently bought a house...so I won't be leaving any time soon. I hope to share my home with others. I trust they will enjoy the Keys as much as I do! I have been really enjoying meeting all of my lovely guests and sending them off to my favorite restaurants, bars, and tourist destinations. I love to travel to a location where someone I know can help guide me to have the best possible vacation, so it's fun for me to try to do the same for my guests. A few of my favorite activities include ultimate frisbee, SCUBA diving, biking, jogging, kayaking, gardening, traveling, and making dinner with friends.
