About Susan Rich
I have lived in the Florida Keys for over 35 years, as I say, "I live and love the Florida Keys!" I love the water and everything about it. If you have never been here, you will fall in love, if you have been here, you know what I'm talking about...
Susan Rich purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Susan Rich chose Big Pine Key
My personal home is on the open water on Little Torch, this location is a straight shot to Looe Key Reef, for some of the best snorkeling, diving and fishing. And if you're just out for a boat ride and a relaxing day with friend, you are close to Marvin Key and the Content Keys.

House has Cockroaches, hard to lock/unlock the front door and would have been convenient to have more then 3 coat hangers. Otherwise, nice location on the water.
Wished for better
It is two cabins 12 feet apart. The interior of the front cabin was clean and adequate. The exterior is badly in need of repair and the under structure looked like it was falling apart. The yard was in need of repair as well.
Quiet & relaxing
The cottage was not fancy but had everything we needed. Was clean which was important to us. The breeze through the back sliding door was so awesome we hardly needed the a/c. Loved the grass in the back yard-great for our puppy to run & play. Thank you for the kayaks-it was our first time to try it. Kikis Sandbar restrauant (just a short walk) is great & dogs are allowed!
We would definitely fo back.
Hey There, I am glad that you had a great vacation. Kayaks are a blast, glad you got to try it.
See you soon,
Great stay .....lots of rebuilding going on on the Keys
Nice spot. Needs a little work but functionally everything works. Took a hit in the hurricane some shoreline damage.
A sweet little place in paradise!
We just recently returned from a great stay in Key West followed by 5 days in this great cottage. My husband and I plus a handful of our small kiddos. The area was very much affected by Hurricane Irma and it was sad to see. But everyone seems to be up and running and the gorgeous waters are still gorgeous. We pulled up to the cottage and were a little worried because it wasn't much to look at from outside but when we went inside, we were so happy because it's adorable! Much bigger than it looks from the photos. The kitchen was surprisingly large and very well equipped- we cooked several meals and it was great. The only issue was that there was no place to have a meal together because the table only has 2 chairs. No problem- spread your beach towels outside on the HUGE lawn and have a picnic with the water as your backdrop and amazing birds flying overhead! Grocery store is like a mile away and so are quite a few take-out options. Or walk down the road to the tiki bar with seriously delicious food in the upstairs restaurant. We used the bar downstairs a few nights to listen to live music and that was alot of fun too. The bedrooms were comfortable, tons of useful storage, full size washer and dryer which we took advantage of and a comfortable couch which we used for a movie night. The kids loved running around on the huge lawn and I loved doing yoga down by the water, we tried kayaking with the provided double kayak but it was too windy.....we weren't able to swim either because it was a chilly week but you probably could (with water shoes- a bit rocky). Bahia Honda is very close by for swimming and we found a few other small state parks with swimming close by. We loved Boondocks for mini golf, weekend breakfast buffets (kids under 12 eat free!), and live music. Nice gift shop too! Close enough for day trips into Key West which we did on a rainy day and visited the Butterfly Museum and did some good shopping on Duval Street. The house had everything you could need and was very comfortable for our needs. Clean, well decorated and the owner dropped off garbage bags and a brand new broom/dustpan after we inquired if there was one to be found. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Enjoyed every minute! Will return and would definitely recommend!!
Thanks for a well kept vacation home Susan!!
Located in the heart of the fabulous Florida Keys, you have access to the best fishing, snorkeling and diving right at your back door. We have our very own reef, Looe Key, which offers some of the best snorkeling and diving in the United States and is a 20 minute boat ride from Little Torch Key. And for a little entertainment, Key West is just a short drive south, or take the shuttle. There are many restaurants in Key West to suite any palate, several museums and attractions, and don't forget those world famous bars. If you go north, you will find Marathon Key, there are also beaches, restaurants, and many attractions here.
