The Owner and the house's name are unique and has have a lot of history behind it. The name 'Villa Marquesa' means the 'Grand Home of the Marquis' in Spanish. The Owner's grandfather was a Spanish Marquis and part of the Spanish Royalty and Nobility. Her family history in Spain goes back 750 years, to a time of chivalry, conquests and conquistadors.

We have owned had this home for years and just love it. it is our own piece of Caribbean Paradise. We have traveled the world but are always drawn back to the Florida Keys. We love the climate, the nature, the warm ocean and especially the people. The people are what makes the Keys and Key West on of the most special places on earth. Here weird and strange are 'normal' and conventionality are frowned upon!

Please visit www.villamarquesa.com for Monthly Rate Specials, our official calendar and prices.

Miguel purchased this villa in 1976

Villa Marquesa was one of the first homes built on the Atlantic/ Ocean Side of Ramrod Key, in Breeze Swept Beach Estates, that's why its architecture is very distinctive and unique. The home is built on a perfect east-west / north-south axis in order to take advantage of the Tropical Caribbean Trade winds. The home is decorated in authentic Caribbean Colonial style and filled with teak and mahogany furniture which give you the feeling of staying at one of the great Caribbean Beachside Villas.

You can fish right off the dock, or just bring bread to feed them but the best fishing sites are off Little Palm Island or by boat off Bahia Honda bridge. If you want deep-sea fishing you can go to American Shoal Light House or past Looe Key Reef. You can also rent kayaks to go up and cruise the canals to see birds, iguanas,and the occasional winter manatee

Please visit www.villamarquesa.com for Monthly Rate Specials, our official calendar and prices.

The Villa Marquesa vacation home is located on the Ocean Side of Ramrod Key, between Mile Marker mm 26 and 27.5. We call our Lower Keys Islands, the windy keys due to their favorable geographical position, which allows the flow of tropical trade winds to blow in all directions, delivering its cooling breezes and also reducing mosquitos. Luckily our average temperatures never dip below the 60's in winter and never rise above the 90's even in the hottest summers, making theses islands a true Tropical Caribbean Paradise all year around. We owe our great weather to the Carribean Tropical Trade Winds and the Gulf Stream, a super current of warm Caribbean water that constantly bathes our islands year round. That's why you will see an abundance of Tropical plants, animals, fish and corals. The warm winter water temperatures also allows for year round snorkeling, fishing, diving , beach-going or other water-sports.

Villa Marquesa, villa by the beach

  • Submitted: Jan 9, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We were lucky enough to rent Villa Marquesa for two full weeks over the Christmas/New Year's holiday for a family vacation. The property is beautiful, well-maintained, and the furnishings are eclectic and lovely (think Pottery Barn at the beach). In a word, all the comforts of home and we felt at home right away. We brought our boat down and were able to launch it easily and keep it at the dock. With very easy access to the ocean we could be diving on Looe Key within an hour of leaving the dock. My daughter and I also took advantage of the kayak to paddle out to 'Picnic Island' in the middle of Newfound Harbor. All in all, Villa Marquesa was a fantastic vacation rental and Miguel was super to deal with. We are planning to rent again - just figuring out when! Thanks, Miguel, for a great experience!

This was the perfect spot for vacationing with family and friends! The space was beautifully decorated & felt very spa like. Plenty of areas to curl up with a book or play games with a group. The beach sand yard was fantastic to catch a little sun in one of many of the lounge chairs. The dock was a a great size for our 23ft Jones Brother skiff and homes canal was located only moments from the ocean. We saw tons of fish in the canal/ocean/gulf and many manatees too! We used the kayaks and enjoyed the top deck very much. We rented upstairs 3 bedroom and the downstairs private apartment all together. Having the 2 units was great for any needed privacy. The crows nest room even has a hatch! the kids loved that. We are definitely going back! Thank you Migual for answering any questions we had prior to the visit. We will be chatting soon

I reserved everything online and via email with the owner Miguel, being also form Europe, we did everything without a problem. Being in Hungary, and so far away I must have called him 15 times and emailed him more than 20 times and He was nice enough to explain everything to the last detail. We used the Villa Marquesa website as our " Keys Guide". While vacationing in he Lower Florida Keys we would use the website www.villamarquesa.com to make dinner reservations, find dive spots, bars, sightseeing, ghost tours, Theater and dinner reserverations, museums, dive and fishing boats. We loved the European / Carribean charm of the home. It felt like a beach house in Ibiza o Mallorca, Spain, beautifully decorated, the carribean colours, the tropical plants, the butterfly's and birds. Can't even begin to describe the beds, they made you feel like you were in a Caribbean Villa from Barbados 200 years ago! We even got to see a huge manatee in the canal that we feed him all our apples and he came back the next day asking for more! Loved the rustic sophistication of the area, and the views.. the sunsets.. I had never seen sunsets so dramatic susnets or stars so bright at night in Budapest. I would definitely return in a year or two…. maybe even retire to the Keys on day!! Loved how the house was so close to the excentirc charm and craziness of Key West yet quietly apart. Key West and Ramrod Key are definietly special places.

We were looking to have a small Tropical Caribbean themed wedding but we afraid of going to Cancun or Jamaica, so we decided on the next best thing and we loved it. The owner helped us arranged the wedding at Villa Marquesa and we had a small beautiful intimate wedding under the trees overlooking the water, and the reception at a nearby botanical garden. After the ceremony we all jumped in the warm clear water of the house.. and went for a swim! We stayed for our honey moon and loved the proximity to Key West and all the great restaurants and night life. We took the owners advice and took the "Conch Bus" a few times from the house to Key West and didn’t have to drive! Loved having all close by, the great beaches, restaurants, museums, diving , fishing , snorkel, bird-watching, chic-boutiques, bars, and then go back to the house and unwind on the Adirondack chairs with a glass of wine and see those amazing pink-purple-orange sunsets. We stayed in a lot, did barbeques, dinners and hung out reading. I have rented in the Caribbean before and the furnishing and interior of the house look straight out of St. Barths, a Caribbean British Colonial Plantation, or a Pottery Barn / Tropical designer magazine "Wow". Stunning, I felt like I was back 200 years in a Caribbean Plantation home. September was low season so a lot of Key West restaurants and bars were closed, but we liked the peacefulness. We would love to come each year for our anniversary or trade our Colorado home with the owner for a month here!

We rented the house with another couple for all of May 2012 and had a great time. Brought my 25 foot Mako with us and loved they we could go fishing every day, the mini-beach by the dock, the heated conch-shower by the docks, and hanging out and bbq-ing at the house. The other couple stayed downstairs and it was great having two separate living areas so we all had our privacy. In the whole month we stayed we hardly left the house, and didnt have a mosquito problem. We had everything really all close by,, shopping, gas food, pizza delivery, but the beach-going, "Bahia Honda beach is amazing", and we were able to go to the beach, dive Looe key Reef diving and Fishing all in the same day. They were few minutes away..from the house and after a long day of fishing and diving some days we'd just hang out with the locals at the sand bar in the the jewel called "picnic island" just outside the canal. I had rented before in Ramrod, on Martinique Lane, which was about a mile up the canal near US1, but this house was perfect, since it had 2 docks and was only 2 canals from the open water.. no wasting gas down a long murky canal and no bridges.. we are renting there next year for sure. We even went over and asked the neighbor for fishing spots and being a fishing captain, he took us along in his boat!

PS: kids loved the crow's nest bed room with the view of the bird sanctuary. We bought them a Bird Watchers Book at "Out of the Blue Gallery" on Big Pine Key and they kids hasd fun and learned alot, keeping track of the all exotic and colorful birds they saw.
