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. 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.
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.

We were looking for a place where we could get away from the crowds and hectic lifestyle, and this place allowed us to do just that. The property was super clean, well maintained, and the owners were extremely friendly. The view was superb and much better than the canal locations we had looked at. We had a very relaxing and fun vacation. Some of the high points were fishing off their seawall and catching sharks, driving around the "back country" looking for Key deer, and cracking open a coconut - with the help of Tom. Thank you Tom and Judy for being great hosts!
My husband & I had a wonderful 2 week stay at Tom & Judy's efficiency unit on Ramrod Key. I can only reiterate that it is a spotless, well equipped unit in which you will feel very comfortable. We cooked in several times & also used the gas grill, but also found several nearby restaurants that we enjoyed (Square Grouper, The Wharf, Galley Grill). We also had fun on 2 finishing charters, & my husband swam every day right in front of the unit. It was quiet & peaceful with a beautiful view. Judy & Tom are very likable people who were always available for questions but who also stayed very much in the background to allow you your own space to enjoy swimming, sunbathing & fishing. We have already made plans to return next year, and look forward to reconnecting with Judy & Tom then. I can highly recommend the people, the property & their piece of paradise. We were very happy with our decision to stay there. Thanks, Judy & Tom! Jan & Tom
Wir können Tom & Judy und ihre Ferienwohung "Efficiency" nur wärmstens empfehlen. Wir hatten wahrscheinlich einen unserer schönsten Urlaube bei den beiden. Die Location ist kaum zu überbieten, das Haus befindet sich direkt am Wasser, man kann früh aus dem Bett den Sonnenaufgang über dem Meer erleben, umrahmt von Palmen und dem kleinen Schilfdach vor dem Haus. Die Ferienwohnung ist selbst für deutsche Gewohnheiten extrem sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet und vor allem ausgestattet. Tom&Judy haben wirklich an alles gedacht, die Ferienwohnung beinhaltet Schnorchelausrüstung, ein Kayak mit Paddeln, Angelausrüstung, Campingstühle, Handtücher u.v.m., selbst Kaffee, Duschgel und ein Willkommen-Bier waren im Preis inbegriffen. Beide Gastgeber sind super nett , freundlich und hiflsbereit in jeder Lage. Am besten man lässt sich jeden Tag Tips von Tom geben, was sich lohnt anzuschauen oder zu unternehmen, alle Empfehlungen waren stets ein Volltreffer. Wir waren vollauf zufrieden und kommen hoffentlich bald wieder.
We traveled to the Keys for our honeymoon and Tom and Judy were the best hosts imaginable! They were so accommodating and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed, whether it be directions, the most current fishing spots, snorkel equipment, or just coffee- but were not invasive of privacy or alone time in anyway! Beautiful location, not too far of a drive to explore the upper keys or key west. Had a great time enjoying the tiki hut, and all the sea life just off the sea wall- there was great fishing just off the sea wall too. We will absolutely be back!
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!!
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).
