As the day dawns over Pine Channel and the spectacular sunrise greets you each morning it will be hard to decide where to have your first cup of coffee, the screened in porch or perhaps the L shaped dock with your boat secured and ready for a day of fishing, diving/snorkeling or exploring the Atlantic and Gulf waters. The dock has a fish table and running water to clean your catch when you return from the beautiful Keys waters.

There is a small space under the house that the homeowners use off and on. The owners are very respectful of renters privacy and will not be in your space. If you have any issues with the house during your stay please contact Walkabout Retreat not the homeowner. As the vacation rental managers we want to make ...

A piece of paradise

"Very nice and clean. Needed curtains in master bedroom very bright in there. Ceiling fans out on the porch very hot. I thought the cleanup before leaving was a little more than anywhere I have ever stayed especially vacuuming and moping but overall it was great."

Perfect rental!

"This rental has paid attention to every detail. Pool, dock, kayaks-all included. Very well laid out home and extremely well appointed. Not only is the home nicely decorated it is extremely clean. The owners were helpful and super nice to talk to. Even the detail on the exterior was amazing. We loved the gardens, hammock, and the outside decor. Truly a “Keys Feel”. Very close to world class fishing and to Looe Key Reef. We will be back to this location for sure."

Fantastic spot!

"We’ve rented in the lower keys for 12+yrs and this is a GREAT spot. The waterfront and pool are absolutely perfect and incredibly private. The location is phenomenal with Big Pine around the corner. The house was impeccably clean and well furnished. Getting a boat in and out of the new dock could be challenging but it’s great for looking into the natural aquarium that’s right there! Loved it! Carol "

Clean and very nice location. The private pool and sun area was great

"Great property location. Close to stores and shopping. Liked that a Tiki bar was down the road walking distance for an evening drink. Like how private the area was at the pool."

Glad we stayed....

"Our stay at the Gladding's Starfish House was simply fabulous. We had the good fortune to be renting a boat while we were there for exploring, fishing and snorkeling so tying up to the dock on the property was perfect. The house itself was well-furnished, comfortable and a fabulous location on a quiet road with brand new dipping pool and great view onto the channel. It was a perfect home for both quiet relaxation reading on the porch or taking a paddle or splashing around in the pool. We were delighted to rarely leave the premises except to get on the boat. I would give it six stars except that we want our dates for next year to be available. It is worth mentioning that the owners, the Gladdings, live next door and are rebuilding their home which was destroyed by the hurricane last year. They have fashioned a small apartment below the rental where they inconspicuously stay. They are incredible hosts and are never seen or heard except when you look for them. They gave us advice on both water and dry land activities and are incredibly gracious folks. Their new home is under construction but the building activity which we were concerned about was benign at worst and barely noticeable at best. It certainly wasn't obtrusive enough to discourage anyone from renting if you are looking for a great, comfortable home with water access. We will be back."
