LITTLE TORCH HIDDEN GEM

Little Torch Key Mobile Home Rental Photos and Description

A hidden treasure in the lower keys

This home is a great place to get away from the rigors of life and enjoy the peace and quiet of the lower keys or get out and partake in all types of water activities. Little Torch is centrally located in the keys but will make you feel like you are miles away.

This is a canal front home, maintained in excellent condition and recently updated. The canal is wide enough to dock a 25 foot boat with no problem. You are only 5 homes from the open water on the north side of the island. No bridge to open water. Just minutes away from full service marinas, jet ski rentals, boat ramps, boat rental and fishing.

Canal and surrounding water is great for fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, boating, back country fishing, and canoeing. Full service dive shops are only 3 minutes away. Looe Key is directly off coast with the best snorkeling and dive site in the lower keys.

Grocery, post office, pharmacy, banks are all nearby. Deer key within minutes. If you are looking for other adventures, you can swim with the dolphins 45 minutes away or visit Old Town Key West and see the famous sunset performers only 45 minutes away.

We have lived on the west coast of Florida for over 45 years. We purchased our Little Torch Hidden Gem (one of the first in the community) when our children were young and have been enjoying it ever since. We are retired now and have let our children help us with the maintenance and management of the property.

Vincent Bonnici purchased this mobile home in 1975

The is truly a hidden gem in the lower keys. We have so many fond memories of spending time here and hope that you will build similar memories. You can relax, just sit out back along the canal and enjoy the breeze off the water or plan activities all day long. It is one of the few wide canals in the lower keys.

This home sits in a small, quiet community where you are minutes from backwater fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet-skiing, deep sea fishing and more. Looe Key is a wonderful nearby diving and snorkeling sight.

Fine base camp!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful Florida "winter escape" where we spent two full weeks of it at this lovely "home on the water." The house is a mobile home, spacious, comfortable and well-appointed, just as described. Boaters will love this location on a wide canal just yards away from the open water; however, we did find it tough to launch our canoe due to the height of the bulkhead, and some afternoon shade in the backyard would be a welcome addition. Restaurants, groceries and other shopping are close by in Big Pine Key and to the south on the highway; we really enjoyed the Boondocks and Mangrove Mama's "down the road." If you're a bike enthusiast, you'll find great biking not far away on Lower Sugarloaf Key as well as "Old 7" at the north-end of the Seven Mile Bridge. And if you need anything bike related, you must visit the Big Pine Bicycle Center...those guys are just the BEST, quick and efficient! We really enjoyed ourselves immensely!!

Would love to return

  • 5 of 5
Just finished our time at the "little Torch Hidden Gem" and we were very satisfied. It is located in a very quiet area (no traffic noise) but it is only a few minutes from Big Pine shopping, several fish markets and numerous dining choices. King bed was very comfortable, linens were nice and there were ample fluffy towels. Kitchen contained everything needed/wanted for preparing meals. Plenty of dishes and cutlery were available. Master bath had a walk in shower and both baths were immaculate. A minor problem with the air conditioning was corrected immediately. Washer and dryer worked great. Although we did not take our boat(couldn't get it out of the snow) we appreciated how easy the dock on the canal would have made going fishing or boating. Enjoyed the comfortable chairs by the canal for morning coffee and evening star gazing. Living room was spacious with comfortable couch, love seat, and recliner. Master bedroom offered two large closets for storage. Our dog was entertained looking for fish at canal's edge. We hope to return in the future

A true gem

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at the Little Torch Hidden Gem. Everything was just as advertised, no problems with anything. Once you find it, it is easy to get in and out, and is well situated to head to Key West or back up to Bahia Honda or Marathon. Having a boat there would be wonderful with such easy access to the water. We got the added pleasure of having manatees in the canal for most of one day, such gentle giants and so much fun to see them up close. We would love to go back, and hopefully stay longer.

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from a week spent here, all I can say is - it's fantastic !!
We went for a family wedding & reunion in the Keys and we were thrilled with "Hidden Gem". It is very central being between Marathon & Key West, yet very tranquil & private.
It is what some call "a double wide"... it has loads of room - 2 bed rooms, 1 x king & 1 x twin. The king has a private shower room/W.C. & a T.V.
There is a main bathroom.
The living room is very spacious and has a recliner chair & two couches (one of which is a bed setee). It has a T.V./DVD player etc..... There is a full kitchen/dining room consisting of cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, toaster oven, dining room table with 4 chairs and a china cabinet.
The property has no shortage of bed linen. towels, crockery, silver ware etc..... and it's air conditioned. There is also a washing machine & dryer.
This property is perfect, however transport is required (as with all of the keys) .... however it is elevated (approx. 6 steps) for anyone impaired.
The grounds can easily accommodate 3/4 cars. A boat can be docked at the rear of the property in the canal which is also fine for swimming/fishing in. The neighbors are lovely and can supply a wealth of history.
I would highly recommend this property

great location and value!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location on a quiet canal on one of the best keys. Just close enough for a quick drive to Key West but out of the traffic. Grocery store nearby at Big Pine Key, and lot of places to eat etc. House is cute, cozy and just perfect for a couple with children. House was well stocked, and owner was very accessible for questions. We really enjoyed the back patio area and water view. Highly recommend. We will be back!
