Ramrod Key Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Has been with HomeAway since 2011

The Efficiency has a private entrance from the outside and can not be entered from the main house. The Efficiency is like a cottage that is attached to the main house. The common wall between the Efficiency and the main house is your laundry and storage area ( with your snorkeling and fishing equipment). This makes the Efficiency private from the main house. The owners (husband, wife and NO children) live in the main house, but the lot is a large lot about the size of 4 normal size lots in the Keys. They do not have any pets, so you can walk about freely without being bothered by pets. The Efficiency is usually very quiet (many of our Guests have fallen asleep under the Tiki hut in the daytime), but occasionally our neighbor rents out his house to vacationers who are noisy. It is important to us that our guests be happy with the Efficiency, that is why we wanted to point this possibility out because the Keys are a vacation destination and this does not happen often but it can happen. If you read the reviews of the past Guests, you can see that it has not been a problem; we just wanted to let you know that it is possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir waren vom 11.-17.11 2012 zu Gast bei Tom und Judy und waren total begeistert. Die Ferienwohnung liegt direkt am Atlantik, so dass wir gleich nach dem Aufstehen erst einmal schwimmen gegangen sind. Das anschließende Frühstück, unter Palmen und direkt am Wasser, war ein Genuss. Häufig nutzten Tom und Judy diese Gelegenheit, sich nach unserem Befinden, unseren Wünschen und Plänen zu erkundigen und sie gaben uns wertvolle Tipps für Unternehmungen. Tom und Judy waren sehr freundliche und herzliche Gastgeber, so wie man es sich nur wünschen kann. Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Es fehlte an nichts und alle Dinge sind bis auf das Detail aufeinander abgestimmt. Die Wohnung befindet sich in einer sehr ruhigen und gepflegten Gegend. Wir verbrachten eine herrliche Zeit. Sollten wir noch einmal auf die Keys fahren, dann würden wir wieder sehr gerne Gäste von Tom und Judy sein.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5
We had a hard time believing all of the past reviews, but they were all true. Tom and Judy are the bests hosts ever! The rental had everything you could ever want or need. They even had enough coffee and cold beer to start our vacation off without having to run to the store right away. The sunrises and the sunsets were great. I didn't think I would spend as much time as we did in the tiki hut, but with the hot August sun, you really did need the shade all day long if you were outside. We spent most of our days snorkeling, fishing,lobstering, canoeing, exploring and boating, but it was great to come back, sit and relax in the hut and chat with our hosts about our day. We hope to return soon!!

A Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The efficiency was terrific! It was equipped with everything you needed and probably forgot. It is very clean and comfortable. It was so fun to have the ocean side shade up at night. It provided great breezes and an awesome view to enjoy in the middle of the night. Judy and Tom provided everything you could think of and more from fishing gear, beach towels, spices, grill, dishes, cooler, canoe, etc… The tiki hut was cool and I really liked the design of the lawn chairs. Very comfortable!!

My husband really enjoyed fishing from the sea wall and I enjoyed watching him react. It was so cool to watch the fish respond to the different baits.
Of course, you can do other things at the sea wall besides fishing. You can snorkel, canoe, boat watching, sun bathing, relax, read a book, or just enjoy laughing. Also, there are lots of activities to do that are not far away.

Judy and Tom were great! They are a wealth of information and fun fascinating stories. Tom is like my oldest brother and is very much a part of the family now (and Judy). They have no choice (ha ha). They made sure we had everything we needed, but were never intrusive. They even gave us some awesome mangos and coconuts from their trees. My husband enjoyed opening the coconut after Tom showed us how. We will definitely recommend this place to our family/friends and hope to visit again if A.K.A. (beefcake) didn’t mess it up (ha ha).

Really great space, great owners!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week here. Very relaxing. Nice to be near Key West but not be in the huge crowds and pay the expensive rates. We really liked exploring the other keys. The room is very comfortable with great views. Everything you need to cook, etc. Loved the canoe, fishing, and just relaxing under the tiki hut. Great breeze, great view. Tom and Judy (the owners) are terrific. They live in the attached house and are there if you need anything. They are a lot of fun, informative, and charming. They're there when you need help but don't intrude on your privacy. We would definitely stay here again.

A piece of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5
Great little place in the lower keys. Tom and Judy were gracious host . The efficiency apartment had everything we needed for a great vacation. We had our privacy but Tom and Judy were available if we needed anything. We spent time sharing stories with them. They place was very clean and tidy. We spent the night with the blinds rolled up on the ocean side so we could see the stars. The Tiki hut was the best!! We had cocktails every day under the tiki hut. We brought our own speaker and had music with our IPhone . The breeze from the ocean was perpetual even in the heat of day it was cool under the tiki hut . We fished from the sea wall and caught some small fish. Had a shark hooked but didn't bring it in. Tom amd Judy provide fishing gear as well as beach chairs for the beach and beach towels. Also snorkel gear. Grocery store is near by so we stocked up on a few things for the week . Some must: No Name Pub on No Name Key. Great pizza !! Love the wall paper!! Go in the afternoon to see the Key deer. They are everywhere. Bahia Honda state park. Calm water on gulf side. Good beach on Atlantic side . Don't let the seed weed bother you. Beautiful scenery. Coffee lovers must go to Baby's coffee MM15. The varieties are great!! The best of all is the trip to the Dry tortugas Take the floatplane worth the money . Great trip . Take the afternoon flight . Only campers and the 9 on the plane.

Great Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with Tom and Judy's rental. Could not ask for anything more. Location was perfect, about 27 miles to the keys. A relaxing quite place to spend the morning's under the Tiki hut, and evenings by the water. The studio was very clean and had everything we needed, even things for the beach. The owners, Tom and Judy were perfect hosts. They were there for advice on where to go and what to do, but also respected our privacy. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to my friends and family, and hope to return again. Thanks again to Judy and Tom for sharing their home.

A Little Slice Of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We came here from a cold PA to do some fishing and relaxing. The sunrise is a great way to start your day. The tiki hut is a great place to go anytime of the day. From morning coffee to beverages in the evening. Don't forget your fishing rod if you like to fish. Everything you need is inside the efficiency. It is very clean and well maintained. Our hosts were wonderful and knowledgeable.You have your privacy if you want it, or if you need anything, Tom and Judy are always there to help. Tom is a great story teller and if you need to know what that fish is, ask Judy. The seawall is right out your door and we spent a lot of time there. Even when the sun is high and bright the tiki is a great way to enjoy the seawall. There are a lot of things you can do at the seawall like swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, fishing, nature watching, sun bathing, and just relaxing. The seawall is also great at night. There are underwater lights to see fish, and the stars are bright. We visited No Name Pub on No Name Key, good food. We also fished lots of bridges. We went to see key deer many evenings on No Name Key. We took the seaplane to the Dry Tortugas. Pricey, but once in a life time trip. If you go, first flight in the morning is best. We chartered a boat for tarpon. Tarpon Diem was the charter and capt. Chad is a great captain. Yes we were successful. Lastly, we would highly recommend this little slice of heaven as a great romantic getaway.
