Why Alex chose Lower Keys Area

We purchased this property because it is near our favorite fishing, spearfishing, lobstering and diving spots plus has stunning sunrises and sunsets. Nice big private lot and a 290 ft breathtaking private dock.

It also has a great advantage, no matter if it is rainy, cloudy or windy out in the ocean, you always get to fish right off the dock!

What makes this house unique

No matter if you have a boat or not, you can fish right off the dock....

NO matter if it is stormy out on the ocean, you can still have fun fishing right off the dock !

Great snorkeling just underneath the dock!

Another Amazing Weekend at Little Torch Key

  • 5 of 5

This is the second consecutive trip down to Little Torch and to this awesome getaway location. Twice now my friends and I have found this rental home to be everything we need and more. The 2nd floor porch is just about as good as it gets, with amazing views of the water and plenty of room for games, dinners, and plain old relaxing. The entire house was in good shape, and the only problem we had (a shower wasn't draining as quickly as it should have) was fixed the same day I reported the problem! The host is responsive and friendly, and I really don't know how much more I could ask for in a rental property. Looking forward to renting again next year!

Awesome Fishing and Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year back because we enjoy it so much. My husband loves fishing from the dock and is always catching something every day and has caught different types of fish each time. Our trip last year we had 2 boats stop and watch as he fought a good tarpon, it jumped a lot. This year he caught some keeper mangrove snapper the first evening there. You can see all types of fish just watching from the dock. I enjoy the comfortable lounge chairs, relaxing during my week away from work. The house is clean and simple, comfy king size bed for sleeping in. All the items you need for a carefree stay. Lots of places to eat nearby and Bahia Honda beach is close too.

Great Stay at a Great Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to take a moment to explain how great our stay was at this place.

We had a fantastic time at the house-the dock made boating and lobstering very convenient, the upstairs living room and kitchen was perfect for recovering from long days on the boat. And that screened in porch on the second floor was absolutely perfect! Thanks for letting us stay, and also for promptly returning the security deposit. We tried our best to leave the place in as good or better shape than we found it.

We're all already excited about doing it again next year, and we fully intend to be back next year.

Thanks again!

Awful

  • 1 of 5

My family just stayed at this property, it was filthy! The place had a bunch of stored workout equipment stored inside and on the porch- it was weird! Everything is very old and worn, the couches had duct tape on them and the kitchen was gross. Everything we ate off of, we had to clean first. The porch outside was so dirty, we had to clean it before eating on the table. The bathroom towels are not fit to clean your dog, so old and worn. For the prices they charge, this house needs an extreme makeover. Wouldn't stay there again- NO WAY!

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to say that this person is just trying to get back because it was the second time I had to take some money off the deposit from someone... They broke the screen door to the upstairs, all the furniture was up side down when they checked out, kid's shoe marks on pillows, the gave chalk to their kids to paint on walls and even on chairs...cheerios were all over the house...on the day they checked out, they left a cake with icing knowing that ants will come from anywhere, also they let their kids paint with icing on the furniture and almost every window, hand prints were all over....I must say I have never seen people with no education or respect towards someone's property... They also placed the keys inside the lock box with a plastic ringer that made the lock box get stuck and we had to break it to get keys for next guest...this last thing we did not even charged for... My appliances are all new, coffee maker, microwave, mattresses, washer and dryer machines, etc, etc...towels and sheets are replaced continuously... The sleeping couches are only 2 years old and yes , we had to fix part of them (not duct tape as this lady says)...each couch is around 2,000 usd , very comfortable couches and some people have ripped them (nothing major)... I should have had covers for them since I started renting the house to prevent this... Now I have covers for them... ...tile is new, dock and house get maintenance and upgrades every year , that is why we have so many returning and satisfied customers... We do have a treadmill and a elliptical so you can be able to exercise, nothing is in the way, they have their own spaces, you will not find it weird if a healthy style life and exercise is part of your life ! On the contrary, you will appreciate it ! It is difficult to rent out a house to people you don't know, most of the times you get real nice educated people but once a year someone like this comes along !
