Steven & Kathy searched for the perfect spot in the Lower Keys, came across a diamond in the rough. You guessed it ....TORCHVIEW, with foresight and some hard work managed to make this piece of heaven 'our Paradise'. We know its 'Paradise 'because we have been told so by ALL who stay here. We KNOW you'll feel that way too, COME CHECK IT OUT!

We live in West Michigan when were not in the Keys.

We are on the premises from Dec. to April.

Kathy Anderson purchased this house in 1993

We have bought a house on Cudjoe and built another there too ( both on canals), it was crowded, noisy and our pets had no where to run. We wanted seclusion, privacy, open water and space to breathe. The first time we saw TORCHVIEW WE knew IT was home.

The most incredible sunsets at TORCHVIEW will capture the tropical flavor of the Keys without leaving the country. Our views off the deck will give you peace and tranquility. Isn't that what we came for????

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5
Best vacation home ever! Spacious, clean, well stocked kitchen cupboards, park-like setting, and of course, the dock. Oh, the dock! How I wish I could snorkel and swim around the dock all day, every day. Nice little beach area, and very clean water with no seaweed issues, like other areas we visited.

All three (3!) dogs, and all three humans thoroughly enjoyed every second of our vacation, mostly due to this property. Out of the way private, yet close enough to Key West and Marathon, too.

We went to Bahia Honda, took the Looe Key reef snorkeling tour. Then, we went took the Dry Tortuga National Park ferry out of Key West. InnerSpace dive center was invaluable for our diving and snorkeling adventures. Sugarloaf Food Co. had the best Key Lime pie we've ever had (and we've had a lot of pie!).

Thanks for sharing your piece of Paradise with us. We will definitely be back!

Well pleased

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a really great week at TorchView (I wish we could have stayed longer). The house was comfortable and clean with plenty of room to stretch out. And our dog was able to run loose on the large, secluded lot.
We particularly enjoyed your pier and reef. We snorkeled and fished there every day. We saw snapper, grunts, angelfish, Spotfin butterflys, lionfish, grouper, cowfish, horseshoe crabs, and more.
Since the property is on the west side, there was no seaweed to contend with and we were able to enjoy wading without the muck and smell we've dealt with at other properties. And the sunsets were beautiful.
Thanks for an excellent vacation.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
Best vacation ever! stated my 18 year old son. And we all agreed. The place is amazing (better than the pictures) and extremely comfortable. The wrap around porch was perfect place to kick back and relax.
Everyone especially loved to hang out on the dock - where we saw 100s of fish, lobster, stingray, shark and we were blessed with a visit of a manatee (first one ever to visit per Kathy and Steve).
The highlight of our stay was the day we hired Steve to take us out on his boat. He knew the best places to snorkel and to fish. We caught enough fish to feed everyone aboard. Even received fillet lessons from Steve and had fish for supper that night. Great Day!
We had a great time and would highly recommend this property

Wonderful Stay at Torchview

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic vacation at Torchview this past February. The house itself is amazing with a huge master bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and a deck that wraps around the entire house. At the same time, it was cozy, immaculately clean and very tastefully decorated. While we were there, the temperature hovered between 78 and 82 degrees. The water was like bath-water. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to fish, snorkel, kayak or just explore. The dock is a treasure with an artificial reef built by Kathy and Steve that literally shelters hundreds of fish. We actually got tired of catching them. We cooked most meals at home, but there are plenty of local places to eat. Boondock's is good for pub-fare and we recommend 5 Brother's Deli for cubano's and breakfast sandwiches. It is also only 25 miles from Key West which has plenty of restaurants, shops and attractions.
Steve and Kathy are wonderful hosts and we thank them for letting us stay at their beautiful home. The only downside was that we wanted to do so much more but we only had a week. That gives us a good reason to return. We would highly recommend this vacation property.
