Known as the heart of the Keys a twenty minute drive to Marathon is ideal because it is quaint and peaceful but offers a multitude of restaurants, a variety of tourist attractions including the 'The Dolphin Research Center', and plenty of shopping. We also pride ourselves for the label 'sport fishing capital of the world' with exceptional tarpon fishing, a growing population of Blue Marlin, and many other species to choose from year round. The reef diving is ideal for beginner to intermediate level divers and the Gulf of Mexico offers shallow waters for great beginner level and child safe snorkeling. You may also appreciate the short distance to Key West, and the Airports of Miami and Fort Lauderdale are just over 2 hours by auto.
Key West is also a twenty minute drive south of Little Torch and discover a city where real estate titles date back to the Kings of Spain. Stroll the palm-lined streets and discover gingerbread mansions, tin-roofed conch houses, the John Audubon House and Ernest Hemingway's home. Walk in the footsteps of Thomas Edison, Lou Gehrig, Harry Truman, and Tennessee Williams. Gaze at the fabled treasure of the galleon Atocha. Discover tomorrow's fine art treasures by Key West's well-known and unknown artists.
In Key West, you can visit these and a host of other attractions by taking advantage of convenient public transportation, taxis, pedicabs, tour trains, trolleys, bicycles or even your own two feet.TripAdvisor property ID 4877486...Read more

This home is clean, very comfortable and well equipped. It has a charming island decor that really lends to the atmosphere and everything is well planned. You can enjoy a drink downstairs or go paddle boarding in the canal. The canal has ocean access and a marina at the end where you can rent a boat. Just ask for Jennifer. We also went to Key West for the famous sunset on Mallory Dock followed by dinner. It is a easy 25-30 minute drive from the house, which is great because you don't have the crowds from Key West but it is close enough to visit. The owners were very accommodating and provided a helpful information package. We really enjoyed the Square Grouper restaurant that they recommended. All in all a wonderful stay in the perfect place!
