Located on the open water on beautiful Ramrod Key, this tropically-themed, three bedroom, two bath home has it all. Enjoy beautiful sunrises from the fully-furnished screened porch or private master bedroom balcony overlooking the beauty of Newfound Harbor.
Spend lazy days relaxing by the heated pool, or drop a fishing line from the 40-foot dock. Just a short boat ride to great flats/deep sea fishing, or to the famous Looe Key Marine Sanctuary for snorkeling/diving fun. At day's end, cook your catch on the outdoor grill and dine under the lighted tiki hut, or take a seat on the outdoor observation bench and watch the tarpon and other fish play in the glow of the underwater lights.
Just a half an hour drive to Marathon or Key West or minutes to any number of local restaurants with an island flair.
Additional amenities include free WiFi access, indoor/outdoor stereo system, and outdoor fish-cleaning station, refrigerator/freezer and shower.
This property is just as described, plus! The pictures do not lie, it is spectacular, well appointed, you just feel like you're home when you walk thru the door. Ramrod Key is a great location by both land and sea.
I can't say enough about this house. It is top notch. The house is absolutely beautiful and looks just like the pictures portray it. Every one of our visitors were in awe and didn't want to leave. The kitchen was furnished with everything imaginable. The layout of the house is perfect...the master bedroom faces the water and the other two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, so every visitor had their privacy. The tiki hut was our favorite hangout place when we weren't in the pool. The grill is high end and very easy to use. Everyone enjoyed sitting on the dock at night watching the fish swim around the underwater lights. Sitting on the screened-in porch in the morning watching the sun rise made a great start to our day. We have been renting homes in the Keys for 5 years, and this is by far the best rental we have ever stayed in. Donna is a pleasure to work with and is very accessible and responsive. No negative comments about this rental, except you won't want to leave!
Wonderful Home Wonderful location, close to Key West and short boat ride to Looe Key for great snorkeling. Home has everything, is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is awesome, 2 or 3 cooks at a time with room, pots and utensils to spare. Outside just as nice and well stocked as inside! Owner is fantastic to work with ( am I using to many adjectives? they are so well deserved). Highly recommend this home!
We very much enjoyed staying in this beautiful, comfortable home that is furnished with everything you could need. We liked the proximity to Key West as well as the beaches at Bahia Honda. The property is well maintained and Donna was very helpful. Thanks for allowing us to share your beautiful home!
Very nice, newish home on one of the few deepwater lots on Ramrod with Ocean views. Southeast breeze makes for a comfortable time in summer vs canal or backcountry residences. Inside is clean and comfortable with granite, stainless etc kitchen and a TV in every bedroom plus one in the family room. Large DVD selection of movies, stereo with spkrs inside & out and well-kept pool. Owner is helpful if you need her but stays out of your way when you don't. We've stayed on Ramrod several years and this home, while the priciest we've been in is worth the extra $. We will be back next year.
This is our 2nd stay in Paradise and my husband and I find it to be the best home away from home with so many more benefits! This has become our annual family and friends’ vacation destination. Couldn’t ask for better accommodations, you truly feel like you are in your own private resort. Beautiful view of the water and surrounding islands, palms blowing in the breeze, smell of fresh sea air, sunshine and moonshine that you have never experienced before! Pool fun every day….no lack of lounge chairs for sunbathing and plenty of tables and chairs in the shade where the adults and grandkids enjoyed midday snacks and meals. Even with the few overcast and rainy days, we just relaxed and took in the accommodations and the view, made selections from the movie library and watched a movie or two, played board games and took further advantage of the gourmet kitchen and whipped up more than a few fantastic meals!
Love the Tiki Hut with the beautiful view of your own private beach and the gorgeous waterfront….can still hear the faint sound of the music playing in the background, palms blowing in the breeze, air infused with the fresh smell of the sea and thinking that the plaque saying “It is 5:00 Here!” couldn’t be more true!
If you decide to venture away from your little piece of paradise, there is so much to do and so very close….good luck fitting it all into your vacation stay. Key West visits, No Name Pub in Big Pine Key (love those little Key Deer), Taco Tuesdays at Looe Key Resort Restaurant & Bar (a Key’s bar if you ever wanted to experience one with great local entertainment, chicken wings and hot dogs…oh and Tacos too!), The Square Grouper restaurant, Bahia Honda State Park, I could go on and on.
And certainly not to forget the fishing……fishing opportunities abound in the Keys. Whether you bring your own boat down and keep it at your own private dock here or if you charter a boat….this stay we caught Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo and hooked 9 Tarpon. We enjoyed sashimi Wahoo poolside with friends and neighbors (everyone is so friendly here). And even if you don’t have the same fishing luck….the adage of “a bad day fishing is better than a good day working!” is so very true here at this awesome home by the sea!
The owners are wonderful and responsive! They even shared a great Fish Taco recipe with us, which was out of this world! The Johnson family & friends can't wait for next year's stay!
Rent a boat at the nearby Dolphin Marina (located at MM 28) for some of the best flats/deep sea fishing in the Florida Keys or catch the 'Kokomo Cat' from the Looe Key Tiki Bar and Dive Resort located at the end of the street for some great snorkeling/diving at the famous Looe Key Marine Sanctuary. Dine in under the tiki hut or at one of the local restaurants with an island flair. For a special treat, take the water taxi from Dolphin Marina to Little Palm Island for a romantic dinner or quiet Sunday brunch.
For the young, and young at heart, play a round of miniature golf at the nearby Boondocks miniature golf course (located at the end of the street) or head 16 miles north to Marathon where you can frolic and play with the dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center or visit the Turtle Hospital. While in Key West (just 27.5 miles south), be sure to take in the Aquarium and Shipwreck and Butterfly museums before heading to Mallory Square for the nightly sunset party.
