Little Torch Key house description

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 20 by 40 foot deck with your boat secured and ready for a day of fishing, diving/snorkeling or exploring the Atlantic and Gulf waters.

This Gulf front ground level 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 L dock can handle up to two 22' boats and is equipped with a fish cleaning table. Kayak, available upon request, can be launched off the small sandy beach with inviting adirondack chairs and lobster pot cocktail table.

Tropically decorated, this three bedroom two bath house is uniquely designed. Two bedrooms have queen size beds and one bedroom has two twins. Each room possesses their own air conditioning unit.
The fully furnished kitchen has an icemaker on the refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, blender, and coffee maker. Stackable 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 nighlife and a touch of history.

EXPECT THIS PARADISE TO BECOME A YEARLY RITUAL!

                                Our family had a wonderful time at the Conch Cottage. Nancy was great to work with and very responsive. We enjoyed the location and found the house perfect for our family of five. We spent most of our time in boats on the ocean, snorkeling, fishing and went to Bahia Honda State Park so the location was perfect. We didn't really hang out at the house too much, but enjoyed the water views and screened in porch.

                                We enjoyed loved the Conch House on Little Torch Key. Everything we needed and then some was available to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. There wasn't a single thing missing. The home is very well appointed, spacious, and comfortable. We spent most of our time on the water fishing, but when we were at the home we spent most of our time relaxing on the deck. And the yard is enormous and a true tropical oasis. The local iguanas were not exactly friendly, but not shy either. We enjoyed sharing the deck and sun with them. The use of the kayaks was an added bonus that we enjoyed a great deal as well. Since we only had 3 days of good fishing weather we spent quite a bit of time at the home. Even though we were bummed we couldn't spend the time in our boat we still had a great time because the place was so awesome! We've been coming to the keys nearly every year now for over 15 years and this is the nicest home we've ever stayed in. Extremely clean, relatively private, and very comfortable with TONS of room!

                                My family and I have stayed in the Keys many times but we were never truly satisfied with our accommodations until we found the Conch Cottage. It was perfect! The house and the grounds outside are very well maintained. The house was clean, comfortable, and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation! The outside is beautifully landscaped and perfect for grilling, boating, fishing, or just relaxing! We brought 2 boats and 3 kayaks. We also used the kayaks provided by the Gladdings. My husband enjoyed having his boat at the dock and we enjoyed the private BEACH to launch our kayaks from!! Nancy and her husband are very trustworthy and answered all our questions in a timely manner! Our family made wonderful memories during our vacation at the Conch Cottage and look forward to staying here again next year!!

                                We have been coming to the Keys to visit our son on Cudjoe Key for 27 years. Our family has outgrown his accommodations and our daughter in law led us to Conch Cottage. It is neat, clean and beautifully maintained with plenty of room and a beautiful view. It affords easy access for everything our family loves to do. We are looking forward to our return.

                                My wife and I had the most wonderful 2 month stay at the conch cottage. The owners were simply the most helpful in answering our questions and making sure we had all that we needed. The property was clean and very well maintained. Every morning we could see the sun rise from our bedroom and were only steps from the ocean. The view was spectacular! We were close to excellent restaurants in big pine, marathon and key west. Little Palm Island is close by and Bahia Honda State Park is only a short drive away. If you enjoy the water, sunsets, kayaking,walking and biking in a very quiet place we highly recommend the cottage. I know our intention is to stay again at this wonderful location.

                                We recently stayed here and just loved it!!!!! We have been coming to the lower keys for many years and this house has been the best of any where we had stayed. The house is nicely decorated and clean. Has everything you need to cook and is very spacious. We were one of two families that stayed together and we had lots of room. The location is great for boating and fishing. Very easy to get in and out. The kids really enjoyed the kayaks in the bayou/lagoon. The owners were fabulous to work with and very friendly. We will definitely be renting this house from now on when we come down.

                                My husband and I stayed at the Gladding compound with our grown children and grandchildren. Words can not describe the joy, the beautiful surroundings and fantastic memories we all made. Our grandchildren keep asking when we can go back. The accommodations are wonderful, more than spacious and comfortable as well as, very classy neat and clean. We loved it! The owners are great people to work with. Very fair, kind and accommodating. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone who values quality and appreciates ocean views. There were endless things to do... boating, swimming with the dolphins, local shopping and a short drive to Key West. And don't forget the sun! Our whole family has ranked this as one of the most memorable times of our lives. Lots of laughs and priceless memories. You won't be disappointed.
