About Vince Riesgo

I love the water and I can't imagine living anywhere else.

Vince Riesgo purchased this house in 2002

Why Vince Riesgo chose USA

I fell in love with the keys as a young boy and always dreamed of having a place there, I'm gratefull I was able to accomplish my dream and share it with others. My wife and I purchased this lot and were fortunate to build back in 2002, we have enjoyed this house with our 3 boys as much as we could. Now our boys are Men and are on there way to becoming boring Adults with little time for fun due to their responsibilities. We don't get to use the house much but want others to enjoy it with their families.

What makes this house unique

Very quiet Key, great boating access. nice Breeze!! I like to open all the garage doors and enjoy the spacious area down stairs. Brand New Dock with fish cleaning station. Upstairs has enclosed porch overlooking Canal, my afternoon cocktail place! You will love this place.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 2 weeks and could not have asked for a better spot. The house was well equipped with everything we needed, including towels, a fully equipped kitchen, linens, etc. Being on the canal enabled us to bring our 21 ft boat and use it every day - snorkeling at Looe Key, fishing, going to Picnic Island - were all possible. We were able to grill our "catch of the day" using the gas/charcoal BBQ in the backyard. Vince was extremely easy to work with and very helpful! We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a great lower keys vacation!

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family vacation. We loved being close to Key West and Bahia Honda. Our one fishing trip was even out of a place on the same street which made it all super convenient. We loved sitting on the screened in porch in the mornings and using the kayaks in the afternoons to explore the area. Vince was very helpful and responsive whenever I had questions. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to the keys and we would definitely stay here again if we come back down.

Paradise in the Lower Keys

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 weeks. We loved it, the photos don’t do it justice!

The house had everything we needed. The kitchen was the most equipped VRBO we’ve stayed in! The house itself is beautifully decorated. Everything was very clean and modern through out. The covered back porch was the biggest plus for us. Amazing BBQ and lots of extras that we didn’t see listed on here. Wi-fi was very fast.

Great location, very private. We took our 18ft boat with us, close to the county boat ramp and easy access to the channel. Key West is 30 mins away. Winn Dixie is 5 mins away on Big Pine.

The owner, Vince, was extremely easy to deal with responded quickly to questions.

Can’t wait to return to the sound of the wind in the palm trees!

Just another day in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice! The house is beautifully decorated and very clean. I felt like I was at home when we walked in the door. It was centrally located, so day trips were easy, if you wanted to sit on the beach Bahia Honda State park is right up the road or for more beach fun a short drive to Marathon, where it is also beautiful. For beautiful sunsets Key West is only a 30 minute drive, with all of the history and bars bars bars !! We love the area and finding this house made our stay so much more relaxing. We are already planning next years trip and will defiantly stay at the house again. We had 6 adults in the house and was not crowded. Like I said before it was like HOME.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed for a week. The house was beautiful and very spacious. Vince was very pleasant and took care of everything that we needed. He even supplied us with kayaks, the boys jumped on them right in the canal, out back as soon as we got there. The area was wonderful only half an hour to key west. There were plenty of activities for all ages in the area, from put put golf, to deer watching, beach, fishing, and snorkling. We definitely will be back again. Thanks Vice for a wonderful vacation.

This area of the lower keys is the most pristeen and most beautiful of the Florida Keys. Little Torch Key is a quiet residential island, amazing waters for snorkeling, diving and fishing. If your preference is Deep sea fishing you are only 15 minutes away from deep water, if you prefer Flats fishing you are in for a treat with some of the most famous backcountry in the world.
