Overview

Little Torch Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy the best that the keys has to offer in this custom built designer home that has everything to make your vacation a great and unique experience. This 2/2 sleeps 4-6 and has a refined tropical finish with serene views of palm trees and water. The only problem is that you won't want to leave!

Nestled at the end of a quiet street at mile marker 28, this home has complete serenity, surrounded by tropical views of crystal clear water. The home boasts a huge kitchen stocked with the finest appliances and utensils that would satisfy any gourmet chef. The home's luxurious finish and open floor plan is complemented with the most beautiful and comfortable tropical furnishings. You breath will be taken away by the details!

The spacious, tropically furnished master bedroom opens up to a 500 square foot screened in balcony and also has its own bathroom with shower views of the palm trees and water. The second bedroom shares its full bathroom with the rest of the home. Both bedrooms are very quiet and have lots of natural light and very comfortable queen size beds. If you need another bed, there’s a full size convertible couch in the living room, and it has a very comfortable mattress, so you’ll be sure to get a great night’s sleep!

The dock can accommodate most any size boat, and comes complete with fish cleaning table. Cool off from a day of fishing with a dip in the crystal clear water. The canal gently flows and is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. A refreshing rinse in the outdoor shower will prepare you for relaxing under the coconut palms in the hammock with a tropical drink from the upstairs bar. Watch as the kids reel in mangrove snappers from the dock (the canal is full of them!) Don’t have a boat? No problem. We can help arrange for a rental boat or for a charter boat for fishing, diving, or sightseeing! For the boaters, a full service marina including boat ramp, fuel and marine repair is conveniently located within the community.

An oversized JennAir Grille is located on the downstairs patio. It can cook enough for an army with five burners, an infra-red searing section, and a great side burner for blackening your catch. It comes complete with all utensils, porcelain grille pans for smaller items such as veggies and shrimp, and cast iron skillets for blackening to perfection. Eat your catch on the screened in balcony on the second floor watching as the water flows by the coconut palm trees.

Key West is nearby with only 25 minutes of scenic driving in between. Visit Key West for its world renowned shopping and dining. We’ll give you our treasure map of the locals’ favorite spots, and check out our Captain's Log for discounts. Be sure to visit the Southernmost Point in the US and then take part in the sunset celebration at Mallory Square. There you will find fire-breathing street performers, an acrobatic show with trained cats, and a very unique one-man-band. In Key West, you can also visit many historical sites and museums, enjoy unique artwork from the numerous local artists and embark on a sunset cruise on a large schooner sailboat.

If you like beaches, then you will love Bahia Honda State Park. The beaches are some of the top rated in the US, and it is only minutes away to the North! Also in the area is the Key Deer National Wildlife Preserve where you can see this endangered species roaming around.

The Little Torch area offers peaceful serenity like nowhere else in the Keys, but has every modern convenience including hardware stores, tackle shops, a major supermarket, and lots of great, often hidden restaurants and bars. You will love exploring the area. You can also celebrate a special occasion by taking a walk to the ferry boat to transport you and your family to a luxurious dining experience at the Five Star resort on Little Palm Island.

If you dive or fish, then you have got to stay in Little Torch. Looe Key (a reef directly offshore of our home) is a Federally protected marine sanctuary with dive sites rated as the best in the continental US. It is simply breathtaking! You will be amazed. For the spearfishermen, we have some great locations for you to visit. There are lots of Grouper, Mutton Snapper, Hogfish, etc, and the lobster abound! As for the fishing, the offshore pelagic species feed aggressively in the currents as the Gulf of Mexico pours into the Atlantic Ocean. There is good daytime Swordfishing on the drop-off. The Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi not flipper) fishing is second to none, and there are plenty of Wahoo, Tuna, and Marlin. The reef fishing is awesome, and there is a lot to explore in the back country, too.

When you drive through the lower keys, you feel the pace of life slow down. Every minute reveals a new breathtaking view as the Gulf of Mexico collides with the Atlantic Ocean and nature abounds over the sprawling ocean flats of the Florida Keys. Teams of Pelicans crash into the water chasing schools of baitfish, herons and cranes wade through the shallow waters, and dolphins play in the channels by the bridges. Life abounds in this paradise and every modern convenience is right around the corner. It just doesn't get any better.

This is our dream vacation home, and we use it for fishing, diving, and just plain relaxing with the family. We are willing to share this with you and your family, but only if you will take care of it as we do. If you are looking to pack the house and party loud, then this is NOT for you. This home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Its furnishings are very nice and not suitable for partiers (or pets). We are hoping that you and your family find the same pleasures that we do and return season after season. We will do whatever we can to make your stay comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable!

About Shawn

The home is owned by a few great friends: a pharmacist, a banker, and a high-end home builder, who all share a love and passion for the ocean and enjoy the keys lifestyle. We all enjoy bringing our families down for vacationing. We love to fish, dive, and cook our catch!

Shawn purchased this house in 2011

Why Shawn chose Little Torch Key

We have been coming to the keys for years for fishing, diving and just plain relaxing. We have stayed on most every island, but It was this area that we truly fell in love with. It is only in this stretch of the keys that you can have the best of everything. You find yourself surrounded by complete serenity and the most breathtaking views, and you still have every modern amenity and convenience at your fingertips. The area is removed from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas, but you are only 20 minutes from Key West.

The fishing and diving off of the Little Torch area is the absolute best in the keys. There are several protected marine sanctuaries renowned to have the most pristine and beautiful reefs in the continental US. Offshore, the pelagic species feed aggressively as the Gulf of Mexico pours into the Atlantic.

When we found this house, we had to have it....it is awesome!. We knew we found our paradise.

What makes this house unique

Serenity - The home is located in a non-touristy area, at the end of a quiet residential street that has virtually no traffic. It's relaxing!

Convenience - Everything is at your fingertips. There are great restaurants and bars nearby, many that deliver. There are marinas, supermarkets, etc. And you're close to Key West without having to live in the madness.

We have a flow through canal - This is important and little known. Unlike most of the keys canals, ours was engineered with openings at both ends so that the water can freely flow through on both tides, always being replaced by new water. This is important because our water does not stagnate and is perfectly suitable for swimming and snorkeling.

Personal connections / discounts - We will give to you our favorite fishing / diving spots as well as a list of the best places to go to eat, etc. Many of these places extend discounts to our guests. We want you to have a great time and we want you to return again and again, so we try to show you the best the area has to offer and steer you away from the not-so-great places.

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at at this home on Little Torch with my family for our June Keys vacation. We all thought the home was beautiful and was well equipped with everything you could need, all in good working order. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and responded quickly to all inquiries. The location on Little Torch Key is excellent - close to Looe Key and other dive spots we enjoy. The canal is very nice and we enjoyed seeing fish at the dock. The main channel and Newfound Harbor are a very short boat ride away. Picnic Island was also fun to visit and only minutes away. We had fun kayaking around the south side of Little Torch Key and saw a variety of small fish, horseshoe crabs, and even a baby nurse shark. Overall an excellent location. We've been coming to the Keys for many years and now consider this beautiful home a top choice for our next trip!

Pertfect Property!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled with our girls (10 and 12) to the Keys for Spring Break and stayed exclusively in this lovely property. From the moment we pulled in the drive, we knew we were in for a great stay. It got even better when we opened the front door. We loved the hardwood floors and modern, beachy decor. My kids enjoyed having their own bedroom and batheroom. The master bedroom was fantastic, with a door leading to the screened porch, overlooking the manicured patio and waterfront. This property has everything you need for a reality escape, yet still has the comforts of home (washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc). The owners were helpful, attentive, and friendly. The experience was so great, we already booked to return in December! If only all rental properties were this perfect!!

Beautiful home, great experience!

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to the Keys was greatly enhanced by staying at this beautiful home.
Enjoyed the location on the canal, with access to the bay. Beautifully appointed. Loved having access to kayaks, bicycles and snorkeling. Only 25 miles to Key West.

The owners were extremely responsive and helpful. Great experience. Highly recommend.

Perfect Paradise !

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed February in this home and the experience exceeded our expectations. The house is beautifully decorated, cozy, extremely clean and equipped with all the amenities we needed for a wonderful vacation. The owners were a delight. They were courteous, thoughtful, easy to contact and always prompt. They sincerely want you to have an incredible vacation and will help to make that happen with insightful recommendations. One favorite highlight was lunch on Little Palm Island, which is only reachable by Little Palm's boat. Enjoy a 15 minute boat ride on a beautiful wooden boat called "Truman" to the private island resort. Little Palm Island Marina (boat departure & return) is located on Little Torch Key, conveniently down the road from the rental home. Make sure to book lunch reservations in advance by stopping by the marina.

There is so much more that truly cannot be put into words until you experience this perfect paradise for yourself ! We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning at some point !
