|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
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.
This Gulf front stilt home with deep water access is a perfect getaway for up to six people (2 per bedroom). Exceeding this limit without the owner's permission will cause immediate eviction and forfeiture of all funds. You can bring your kayak,(or use the one on site) hobie or windsurfer and enjoy the warm sunshine, tropical breezes and beautiful clean water right in your front yard.
Boating access is unsurpassed, only minutes to American Shoal and the reef with Looe Key Marine Sanctuary or if you prefer the back country, Contents Key and world class fly fishing are all nearby.
The cement L shaped dock can keep your boat secure during your stay. Kayak, available upon request.
Tropically decorated, this three bedroom two bath house is uniquely designed. Two bedrooms have queen size beds and one bedroom has two twins. The house has central AC.
The fully furnished kitchen has an icemaker on the refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, blender, and coffee maker. Washer and dryer are in the bedroom closet for your convenience. Wireless internet service is included. Grocery shopping, marinas, boat rentals, video store and restaurants are minutes away. Key West, a twenty-seven mile drive, offers unique shops, gourmet restaurants, exciting nightlife and a touch of history.
For larger groups you can rent our VRBO #46707 which is right next door. Our 2 beautiful waterfront homes on Barry Ave Little Torch Key can sleep up to 12 guests.
EXPECT THIS PARADISE TO BECOME A YEARLY RITUAL!

Owner Description We love to share our 'Little Piece of Paradise'. When we spend time at our second home with family and friends we love to fish, windsurf, and bird watch. The Florida Keys is uniquely beautiful and a treasured spot to be enjoyed and protected
We had a wonderful time at the Starfish House with our 2 kids over Thanksgiving. Booking was trouble free. Nancy was very responsive and answered all of our questions quickly.
The house was beautiful. Kitchen and bathrooms have been updated and beds were comfortable. The wrap around screen porch was fantastic - beautiful views, enjoyed watching the sunrise and just relaxing and enjoying the breeze. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was quite windy when we were there so opted out of using the dock and kayaks, but in less windy conditions are great to have available.
We found the location very convenient. We made the scenic drive down to Key West a couple of times and then the other direction to Bahia Honda and Marathon to the Turtle Hospital. Grocery shopping was also nearby on the neighboring key.
Highly Recommend! Thanks Nancy!
This is a wonderful house and property, and the owners Nancy and Bob could not have been nicer or easier to rent from. Little Torch Key is a low-key little island about a half hour from Key West. My family of four loved it. Starfish House was just about perfect: spotlessly clean, spacious, light, and well equipped. Even nicer than the photos. The kitchen area has just been redone with white cabinets and green granite counters. We joked that everything else in the house seemed brand new too. The wrap around screened porch is a great place to hang out both day and night, and the big back lawn leading to the very private dock was fabulous. We loved waking up to that wide open water view. A great vacation. Hopefully we will be back!
My husband surprised me with a trip to the Florida Keys for our 30th wedding Anniversary - staying at The Starfish House was amazing - from the breeze flowing through the house to the beautiful views from the porch of the water. Beautifully decorated and a very well equipped kitchen made us not want to leave! Our days were spent snorkeling and kayaking and watching starfish in the water and iguanas basking in the sun. Bob and Nancy are amazing - we will miss them and The Starfish House greatly!
WE STAYED MARCH 2012 AND 2013.WE HAD THE BEST TIME ON LITTLE TORCH KEY. HOPE TO GO BACK. THANKS BOB AND NANCY. WE ARE REALLY HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS OF NOT BEING THERE 2014.
We fell in love with the house the minute we walked in the door. The house was clean, cozy, well decorated and more than we expected. Better than the pictures!! Nancy Gladding was such an amazing host; she made the entire process run smoothly. Nancy even accommodated us for an additional night at the last minute.
The day we left we vowed that we would come back and this would be the place we stayed. It was a bit heartbreaking to leave as we had such a great time and felt so at home here.
I've already recommended this home to family and friends; especially my brother who typically stays next door at Parmer's Resort. This home is a much better value for the money than Parmers.
Loved the house, everything was wonderful. Owners are the nicest people. We even stayed an extra night.
