This 2/2 sleeps up to 6 and has a refined tropical finish with serene views of palm trees and water. The only problem is that you won't want to leave!
Nestled at the end of a quiet street at mile marker 28, this home has complete serenity, surrounded by tropical views of crystal clear water. The home boasts a huge kitchen stocked with the finest appliances and utensils that would satisfy any gourmet chef. The home's luxurious finish and open floor plan is complemented with the most beautiful and comfortable tropical furnishings. You breath will be taken away by the details!
The spacious, tropically furnished master bedroom opens up to a 500 square foot screened in balcony and also has its own bathroom with shower views of the palm trees and water. The second bedroom shares its full bathroom with the rest of the home. Both bedrooms are very quiet and have lots of natural light and very comfortable queen size beds. If you need another bed, there’s a full size convertible couch in the living room, and it has a very comfortable mattress, so you’ll be sure to get a great night’s sleep!
The dock can accommodate most any size boat, and comes complete with fish cleaning table. Cool off from a day of fishing with a dip in the crystal clear water. The flow through canal allows the keys water to flow through both ways, and is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. A refreshing rinse in the outdoor shower will prepare you for relaxing under the coconut palms in the hammock with a tropical drink from the upstairs bar. Relax in a heated splash pool with jets, big enough for your whole party. Watch as the kids reel in mangrove snappers from the dock. Don’t have a boat? No problem. Rentals and charter boats are nearby for fishing, diving, or sightseeing! For the boaters, a full service marina including boat ramp, fuel and marine repair is conveniently located within the community.
An oversized JennAir Grille can cook enough for an army with five burners, an infra-red searing section, and a great side burner for blackening your catch. It comes complete with all utensils, porcelain grille pans for smaller items such as veggies and shrimp, and cast iron skillets for blackening to perfection. Eat your catch on the screened in balcony on the second floor watching as the water flows by the coconut palm trees.
Key West is nearby with only 25 minutes of scenic driving in between. Visit Key West for its world renowned shopping and dining. We’ll give you our treasure map of the locals’ favorite spots, and check out our Captain's Log for discounts. Be sure to visit the Southernmost Point in the US and then take part in the sunset celebration at Mallory Square. There you will find fire-breathing street performers, an acrobatic show with trained cats, and a very unique one-man-band. In Key West, you can also visit many historical sites and museums, enjoy unique artwork from the numerous local artists and embark on a sunset cruise on a large schooner sailboat.
If you like beaches, then you will love Bahia Honda State Park. The beaches are some of the top rated in the US, and it is only minutes away to the North! Also in the area is the Key Deer National Wildlife Preserve where you can see this endangered species roaming around.
The Little Torch area offers peaceful serenity like nowhere else in the Keys, but has every modern convenience including hardware stores, tackle shops, a major supermarket, and lots of great, often hidden restaurants and bars. You will love exploring the area. You can also celebrate a special occasion by taking a walk to the ferry boat to transport you and your family to a luxurious dining experience at the Five Star resort on Little Palm Island.
If you dive or fish, then you have got to stay in Little Torch Key. Looe Key Reef (directly offshore of our home) is a Federally protected marine sanctuary with dive sites rated as the best in the continental US. It is simply breathtaking! You will be amazed. For the spearfishermen, there are some great locations for you to visit. There are lots of Grouper, Mutton Snapper, Hogfish, etc, and the lobster abound! As for the fishing, the offshore pelagic species feed aggressively in the currents as the Gulf of Mexico pours into the Atlantic Ocean. There is good daytime Swordfishing on the drop-off. The Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi not flipper) fishing is second to none, and there are plenty of Wahoo, Tuna, and Marlin. The reef fishing is awesome, and there is a lot to explore in the back country, too.
No need to make that annoying morning run for ice. A 600lb ice machine is available to you under the patio.
When you drive through the lower keys, you feel the pace of life slow down. Every minute reveals a new breathtaking view as the Gulf of Mexico collides with the Atlantic Ocean and nature abounds over the sprawling ocean flats of the Florida Keys. Teams of Pelicans crash into the water chasing schools of baitfish, herons and cranes wade through the shallow waters, and dolphins play in the channels by the bridges. Life abounds in this paradise and every modern convenience is right around the corner. It just doesn't get any better.
This is our dream vacation home, and we use it for fishing, diving, and just plain relaxing with the family. We are willing to share this with you and your family, but only if you will take care of it as we do. If you are looking to pack the house and party loud, then this is NOT for you. This home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Its furnishings are very nice and not suitable for partiers (or pets). We are hoping that you and your family find the same pleasures that we do and return season after season. We will do whatever we can to make your stay comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable!
