Fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and boating are all very popular. Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary is just a short boat ride away from the house. Popular for skin diving, snorkeling, fishing and boating, the sanctuary is considered by many to be the most spectacular reef in the Lower Keys. The remains of the H.M.S. Looe which sank in 1744, and for which the sanctuary is named, still remains on the ocean floor within the sanctuary boundaries. Or just dive under the dock in front of the house, it is filled with thousands of fish, perfect for snorkeling, or swimming. Go fishing right off the end of the dock, or setup a charter for a day of World-Class Keys Sport fishing!
A short drive down US# 1 takes you the the wonderful town of Key West! The town is rich with history, and filled with historical homes, shopping, beaches, outstanding restaurants! Don't forget about Mallory Square, where crowds gather to watch the sunset, street entertainers, live music, and dancing.

Big Torch Key Vacation Adventure
Big Torch Key Vacation Adventure
I arrived to a beautiful home on a large property. The home is about 3 miles in from the main highway. The location is great because you do not have the vehicle traffic or noise. There is alot of vegetation in the area. The home is on the second floor. The lower floor has a walk through area with a bait freezer and a place to put your beach stuff. The second floor has the living area. The kitchen is modern with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a washer and dryer and a livingroom that looks out to the ocean. My favorite area was the screened large balcony. The balcony is nicely furnisher with lots of comfortable seating with a table and chairs also. The upper level has a another patio area that has a barbecue. The beach / dock area is AMAZING. We drove to Marathon to two sandy beaches and returned to use the area behind the house. The area close to shore has a few rocks but nothing major. The swimming and snorkling is amazing. There are fish, crabs, and lobsters everywhere. The water clarity is great. We saw a nurse shark, horseshoe crabs and sting rays. The fishing from the dock is good. You are a short 28 mile drive to key west. The sunset views are great and since there are no city lights close by the view of the stars are great. The house is very well maintained and in an area that you would never have know existed when driving on the main highway. Communication with the onwers agent was very good and helpful. I have rented vacation homes in many states and by far, Fretz House has given us one of the best vacations. You are close enough to town and Key west to just drive in for dinner. This will be a vacation that we will remember for a long time. William V. - Castaic, California
