We have several rental properties, but this is our favorite. We designed and built this house in 1992 and enjoy being here, even if we are working and maintaining the home.

The Owner purchased this house in 1992

We bought the land and built here because of the views and quiet location

Being on the water and in the sun; Moonrises and the stars at night.

Best Christmas Ever

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 9, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My family of 4 had the pleasure of staying here for Christmas 2013. The house could not have been more perfect. Everything we needed was here. Fully stocked kitchen, bicycles, kayak, everything we needed. We brought our fur babies along and found this to be a very dog friendly neighborhood. Not only did we meet some very nice people (and dogs) but everyone that drove or cycled by waved and said hello.

Bob and Sandy gave us some great recommendations also. We biked to the Looe Key Tiki bar on corner for Sunday football. Great atmosphere and great food. We also hit up No Name Pub for pizza, ventured to Marathon for The Keys Fishery, and spent a day in Key West. I prefer Publix to Winn Dixie, which was ok for basics, but thought it was worth the drive to Publix. (in Key West or Marathon). The house was in a great location for everything we wanted to do.

Bob and Sandy even set up a Christmas tree for us to decorate! It doesn't get better then that.

The only things missing? A cabana boy to bring drinks while you relax in the hammock, and my name on the mailbox! This was our 4th trip to the Keys ( once in a hotel, once in an RV, an once in a different rental) and if we decide to come back this will be my first choice for a place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jacquie for the wonderful review. I hope that you and your family (including the 4 legged ones) will have an opportunity to come back and visit us again.

We just got back from the most amazing vacation ever! We booked a week here just over a year ago and Bob was GREAT to work with all along the way. He has a beautiful house and the pictures really don’t do it justice! It’s like walking into a friends’ home with everything you could possibly need. We did have a couple of random requests (not necessities) and Bob was quick to make sure they were there for us. We ate almost every meal at the house and the kitchen was very well equipped. From spices to every type of kitchenware we needed. There were 7½ of us =) … two adults & two kids in the master bedroom (what a view!), two adults in the queen bedroom and me & my dog (a.k.a. “fur kid”) in the twin bedroom. The view from the kitchen and living room was spectacular!! We were lucky enough to be there during a full moon which was quite a treat! We sat out on the screened in patio/balcony and enjoyed the beautiful moonlight over the water. The house was very comfortable and well-decorated. Even with seven of us (plus a dog) we always had plenty of space … on the patio, in the kitchen to cook & eat, and in the living room for game nights. But probably the best thing for me was that it’s located right on the water. We all were in the water every single day … From swimming & snorkeling to fishing (caught a few keepers & made fish tacos!) to kayaking (available to use) and paddle boarding (we rented & had delivered) … even my fur kid participated (everything but the fishing & snorkeling). The outdoor shower was great for cleaning off after water activities and for giving my dog a bath! This house was ideally located in the Keys, in my opinion. We made it to Key West a couple of times and made it as far up as Marathon to Sombrero Beach. Bahia Honda was a very easy drive which we made twice (must see!) and the Looe Key Dive Center was at the entrance to the neighborhood. We all did a snorkeling trip to the Looe Key Marine Sanctuary which is another must do! It’s only about a 20 minute boat ride out to the reef. If we had more time I’m sure we would have explored further up the Keys but there was so much to do and see nearby that we didn’t feel like driving any further. The neighbors were great, too … I met them and their dogs on my daily walks and they made me feel right at home. And of course I loved being able to bring my little guy with me everywhere we went (except the snorkeling excursion). The ONLY bad thing about the entire week is that we had to leave!!!

Peace and quiet on Ramrod Key

We stayed at this property over Christmas week. It is a very comfortable house in a great location, with double screened porches facing the water. The house is nicely decorated and well outfitted. (The owner set up a small Christmas tree for us, nice touch!) The kayak and bikes available for our use really made a nice difference (although the bikes are not in great shape, they were good enough to explore the flat Keys surroundings). We kayaked several times and saw many different kinds of birds, some rays, and even a large iguana in a tree. The master suite on the upper floor is AMAZING - you can open the 2 sets of triple doors completely and wake up to the gorgeous sunrises. Priceless! We did a combo snorkel-dive trip to Looe Reef with the Looe Key Dive Shop up the road, which was an adventure. And you're about 40 minutes from the craziness of Key West for day trips. Would stay here again.

Sorry for being late with the review...
Well what can I say, it was better than pictures, owner was so responsive, kind, informative, cannot praise him enough. This was the ultimate "chill out" experience, me, husband and older son; kayaking, going to Key West, Everglades, snorkeling...just a very enjoyable vacation, not too many tourists and a laid back vibe. Good selection of books in the house, master bedroom is super cool with it's own deck and the great view, so many great touches ( spices in the kitchen, coffee, honor wine etc. ), feels truly like home. Would definitely come back and I am warmly recommending it...

Everything We Could Have Hoped For -- And More

From the gorgeous view to the beautifully appointed kitchen, this house offered EVERYTHING to provide a wonderful holiday for our entire family. Morning coffee and evening happy hours on the screened porches, kayaking in Newfound Bay, bicycling in the neighborhood and on nearby Torch Keys, sampling fish dip at every nearby restaurant, shopping on Big Pine that met all our needs including gifts, minigolf for family fun, Happy Hours, walking in the quiet lanes...what fun we had. So much wildlife and interesting ecology to enjoy. Gorgeous days at Bahia Honda beach and oh the sunsets! Key West is a short drive for history and major shopping, while the peace of Ramrod shielded us from the busyness of winter tourists. Grandchildren loved building forts with beach towels on the balconies and playing under the house, adults loved pushing back the glass doors for unobstructed views of the water. And the fabulous daily trips to get fish and seafood from nearby fish markets. We are definitely coming back for a month next year and plan to gain more skill at catching our own dinner!
