For us, this place worked out great!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house was our favorite part, it is right across the channel from Big Pine Key, which happens to be our favorite, with all the key deer roaming around. It is less than a half hour from Key West, and about 15 minutes from Bahia Honda State Park. We loved the water front property, it was plenty big enough for us to pull our 42 foot 5th wheel in, completely set it up, and also park two large pick up trucks. The use of the kayaks was very nice, even if the wind didn't cooperate most of our stay, and the pool was a refreshing treat. When we arrived there was only one kayak, when the listing stated two, I sent Donald a text, and he had someone bring us another the same day.

The house itself is an older house, and a bit dated, but it worked out well. It was clean when we arrived, and felt comfortable. The two upstairs bedrooms are small, as the listing states they are. The master down stairs is plenty big, and has a connecting bathroom. The living room area was big, comfortable, and had a nice view of the water. The down stairs (efficiency) is nice to have for the extra fridge, and a down stairs bathroom, but I wouldn't feel comfortable letting anyone sleep down there. Donald did make sure to tell me that it is not as nice as the rest of the house, and he was right. My husband did get bit by a scorpion while walking through there one evening to use the bathroom. That was a little scary, and very painful, but after some quick research we learned that there are no deadly scorpions in FL, and by the next day there was no sign of the bite on his foot. The decks are dated, and kind of sketchy in places. We avoided the top deck because of this, but had lots of fun on the ground level. The neighborhood was quiet, and laid back.

In my honest opinion the price is a bit high for this home, but since we could fit our 5th wheel in the lot (we travel full time in it for work so it's always with us), the location, the fact that they are pet friendly, and being right on the water was so nice, we would rent it again. Donald and his wife were very easy to work with, friendly, and were always quick with their responses whenever I contacted them. We thank you for sharing your home with us, Donald, all in all, we enjoyed spending the holidays there, and hated to leave the beautiful Florida Keys! Wishing you & yours all the best in 2016!

What a Week!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location, halfway between Marathon and Key West. The house was exactly what the agent said it was. The interior decor was fantastic and there were lots of little extra amenities that we did not expect. And wait until you hear the sound of the rain on the rooftop....really cool.

This is the perfect house for larger groups. We were able to throw the teenagers downstairs in the efficiency while the adults got to bask in the upstairs. The channel provided for some excellent snorkling and kyaking right in front of the house. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Very pleasent home

  • 4 of 5

Home is unusual and quite interesting. There are beautiful views and a very quiet location. The decks provide a great venue to read, sit around and talk or simply look at the water. Living room is very comfortable with plenty of space. Little Torch Key is a residential neighborhood of mixed homes and you definitely need a car to get anywhere. The hose is within about 40 minutes of Key West over some spectacular scenery. Home owner was very easy to work with and left us a small Christmas tree as a welcome (very considerate). The home was very clean.
