About Kathy Anderson
Steven & Kathy searched for the perfect spot in the Lower Keys, came across a diamond in the rough. You guessed it ....TORCHVIEW, with foresight and some hard work managed to make this piece of heaven 'our Paradise'. We know its 'Paradise 'because we have been told so by ALL who stay here. We KNOW you'll feel that way too, COME CHECK IT OUT! you can contact me at TORCHVIEW facebook or "floridarentals" We live in West Michigan when were not in the Keys. We are on the premises from Dec. to April.
Kathy Anderson purchased this House in 1993
Why Kathy Anderson chose Big Torch Key
We have bought a house on Cudjoe and built another there too ( both on canals), it was crowded, noisy and our pets had no where to run. We wanted seclusion, privacy, open water and space to breathe. The first time we saw TORCHVIEW WE knew IT was home.
What makes this House unique
The most incredible sunsets at TORCHVIEW will capture the tropical flavor of the Keys without leaving the country. Our views off the deck will give you peace and tranquility. Isn't that what we came for????

Amazing Place - Everything we had hoped for and more.
We stayed there in March 2018. The house is very nice and big with a fully equipped kitchen and excellent wrap-around porch. It's a very peaceful and quiet spot. The sunsets are the best I have ever seen.
If you enjoy snorkeling and fishing, this place is amazing. Right off the dock, we saw and caught a very wide variety of fish including sharks (Lemon, Bonnethead, Nurse), Barracuda, Ballyhoo, Stingray, and Mangrove Snappers (good for eating). We also caught lobsters right under the dock. There is a nice little beach area for sunning and relaxing. This is an interesting, fun, and relaxing vacation spot. We'll be back.
Excellent Retreat for Couples or Families
The house was more than we hoped it would be. The view was spectacular! Everything we could possibly need was at our fingertips. The property was close enough to Key West to allow us to enjoy being tourists, but supplied us with a tranquil spot for morning coffee, long conversations, and quiet evenings. The owners offered great suggestions for things to do in the area and were very gracious hosts. We cannot wait to return. We are already recommending the house to our friends and family!
Totally relaxing vacation!
If you want a totally relaxing vacation, this is the place to stay. Torchview is a beautiful, secluded property yet not far from the Lower Keys attractions and Key West. The dock is right out front and we enjoyed walking out on it to look at the water and we enjoyed snorkeling off the man-made reef. Bahia Honda State Park is close and has a beautiful beach. The house is spacious and has all the amenities you could want. Kathy and Steve were super helpful about local attractions and restaurants to try. We enjoyed watching the sunsets from the deck as well as watching the Key deer and iguanas on the property.
Hope to return soon!

Great secluded house with amazing views
If you’re looking for a house off the beaten path, you couldn’t ask for anything better. Tons of fish and marine life around the artificial reef to go along with calm seas for kayaking.
Our dog Zoe had so much fun on the property and the owners really love animals.
The house is beautiful and the owners, Kathy and Steve, are super knowledgeable. So if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway without the Key West crowd, Torchview should be at the top of your list.
Had an absolutely wonderful time at Torchview! From the deer that greeted us in the mornings, to the iguanas hanging out in the trees, you truly get to take in some of Florida's true beauty. The artificial reef is amazing, attracting all types of sea life, including thousands of fish, lobsters, crabs, a massive stingray, and my personal favorite, a large and curious Moray eel.
The owners are extremely helpful and professional, making sure everything went smoothly. A beautiful house on a beautiful key, I greatly look forward to my next stay at Torchview!
