About the Property

A hidden treasure in the lower keys

This home is a great place to get away from the rigors of life and enjoy the peace and quiet of the lower keys or get out and partake in all types of water activities. Little Torch is centrally located in the keys but will make you feel like you are miles away.

This is a canal front home, maintained in excellent condition with a new deck all new flooring throughout in summer 2015. The canal is wide enough to dock a 25 foot boat with no problem. You are only 5 homes from the open water on the north side of the island. No bridge to open water. Just minutes away from full service marinas, jet ski rentals, boat ramps, boat rental and fishing.

Canal and surrounding water is great for fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, boating, back country fishing, and canoeing. Full service dive shops are only 3 minutes away. Looe Key is directly off coast with the best snorkeling and dive site in the lower keys.

Grocery, post office, pharmacy, banks are all nearby. Deer key within minutes. If you are looking for other adventures, you can swim with the dolphins 45 minutes away or visit Old Town Key West and see the famous sunset performers only 45 minutes away.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1975

About: We have lived on the west coast of Florida for over 45 years. We purchased our Little Torch Hidden Gem (one of the first in the community) when our children were young and have been enjoying it ever since. We are retired now and have let our children help us with the maintenance and management of the property.

Why Big Pine Key, FL, USA:
The is truly a hidden gem in the lower keys. We have so many fond memories of spending time here and hope that you will build similar memories. You can relax, just sit out back along the canal and enjoy the breeze off the water or plan activities all day long. It is one of the few wide canals in the lower keys.

The Unique Benefits at this Mobile Home:
This home sits in a small, quiet community where you are minutes from backwater fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet-skiing, deep sea fishing and more. Looe Key is a wonderful nearby diving and snorkeling sight.
