Little Torch Key house description

Villa del Sol's location is ideal for visitors new to the Keys and yearly visitors alike. Within a half hour drive to both Marathon and Key West Airports, or a 2.5 hour drive from Miami, you will be in the middle of all the Keys has to offer. From fishing, to shopping or dinning, this home's location is smack in the middle of it all.
The home itself has a master bedroom with a queen size bed & a full bathroom with shower & closet. The second bedroom has a full size bed and a set of bunk beds (2 twins). The third room has a day bed with a trundle bed underneath, armoire and night table.
There is a basic living area, with cable tv, dvd player, cd player, blueray, and even movies to choose from for your convenience.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything from blender to rice maker to espresso and coffee maker. Clean towels and linens are provided and we even leave basic needs in cupboards such as coffee, sugar,seasonings and condiments in fridge for your convenience.
We strive to keep our property in tip top shape, with fresh paint when needed and appliances in working order, always clean and ready for your arrival.
There is a laundry room upstairs at the house level with brand new washer and dryer as of January 2014. Sitting area for a sunset drink or just to catch up with reading and/or emails.
The downstairs of the house has been recently finished to include sitting areas, a hammock, beautiful bamboo ceilings and fans, and is furnished with a small fridge, barbeque, and eating tables and chairs. From here you may sit and enjoy your family with music, a game of cards or monopoly, swimming in the canal or maybe just watching boats go by while relaxing.
From the kayak dock provided you may rent kayaks at a local shop and go for a leisurely kayak treck, down the canals and maybe venture out to the gulf, where the shallow waters provide the home to baby nurse sharks and millions of other species of fish and sea life. Perhaps boating is more your style, and if you do not have your own boat, there are plenty for rent locally. In which case, you may venture out to Loey Key sanctuary, where you can snorkel in waters where you will think you are inside an aquarium. Visit Little Palm Island, rated one of the top 10 most exclusive resorts in the world, and enjoy a drink, lunch or dinner at their top rated restaurant. If a beach is what you want, then there's Bahia Honda National state park, or drive down to Key West and visit fort Jefferson, the Eco Center which is free to the public with a beautiful display of Florida Keys wildlife and a 15 minute movie which will take your breath away. There is also the Key West Aquarium and the Historic Museum, the Trolley ride, Ripley's Believe it or not, and many other must see attractions that you and your family will love and remember for years to come.
Or then again, just sit back, pour yourself a cold drink, and enjoy the quiet, sunny tropical paradise in Villa del Sol's yard.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We are a family of 5 who started coming to the keys in 2005, when my second son was only 2 years old. My husband grew up in Miami and as a child visited the keys on a regular basis with his parents and brother. It was my first time visiting, but that's all it took. We found this home and immediately purchased it, wanting to have a get away from the traffic and hectic live in a city such as Miami. Living in Miami Beach is great, but what my boys and my spouse look forward to on weekends is going to Villa del Sol. My boys have learned to fish at this house, cleaned their first snapper, and fed several manatees throughout the years from our very own dock. They have swam with sharks at Loey Key, yes, sharks, real life size sharks that hang out and live in the reefs, and even petted Goliath groupers that hung under our boat for shade. If you asked them what they got for Christmas last year they would probably hesitate to think, but they will clearly remember their biggest catch when out on the boat with dad. We love the time we spend at Villa del Sol, and it is what keeps us sane as parents and close as a family. We started renting the property in hopes of sharing in those experiences that have become so special to us. We know that no matter your interests, our home has something that will satisfy you, and we hope to become a place you will want to visit year after year.

                      Why the Owner Chose Little Torch Key:
                      We looked throughout the lower keys and originally looked into Big Pine, but the canal was stagnant and the distance from US1 to the house was significantly long. When we visited this property in Little Torch, we loved how close to the highway it was, yet in a quiet, residential neighborhood. We loved the location at a dead end street with little or no traffic. The lot itself is an end lot with two sides on the canal/water, and the local boat ramp was close, clean and accessible. The size was perfect for us, and the fence gave us peace of mind with our children and pets. We can drive to Key West and enjoy festivals and celebrations, but can always drive back to our quiet little piece of paradise.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      As the owners, we know how important it is to have a place where we can feel at home when we are far from ours, especially on vacation, so we try to make it as comfortable as possible for all our guests. If issues arise, we are close enough to handle them directly, or call someone who can. We have been blessed with great guests who love coming back year after year. Those are the guests we strive for, and we are happy when renters make a connection with our house that brings them back.
