|Minimum Stay||28 nights|
Come and relax at our home on Ramrod Key. Sit at the waters edge and watch the sun glisten on Newfound Harbor while enjoying your favorite cocktail. Take a nap in the hammock in the shade of the buttonwood trees. Read a book while swinging in the hammock chair or on the front deck. Enjoy snorkeling with the fish in our backyard. Or kayak out onto Newfound Harbor to watch the sunset.
Wake up in the Master Suite to the open water view. You will not want to stay in bed!
Our home is just 30 short minutes from Key West. Boat ramps are nearby to launch your own boat. Dolphin Marina is just a couple miles up the road if you prefer to rent a boat. However, dockage is not available at the house.
Spend the day snorkeling or diving Looe Key, just six miles directly south via your own boat or the dive boat at Looe Key Reef Resort.
At night, enjoy the live music at the Looe Key Reef Resort Tiki Bar. (We call it the Leaky Tiki) just a short walk from the home. Or have dinner at Boondocks, then play a round of miniature golf.
It's all waiting for you!
Keywords: Beautiful 3 Bedroom 3 Bath waterfront home on Ocean side with incredible open water, sunrise and moonrise views.
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.
We stayed for a week in May, and it was just what we needed. House is beautiful, clean and properly equipped.
If you have a chance, visit the Sunset Grille in Islamorado. The food is awesome, along with the lovely views of the ocean. We made the mistake of going to the No Name Bar, on No Name Key (near the Winn-Dixie on Big Pine Key). Saw a male Key Deer on the road in NM Key. Speaking of the Winn-Dixie...Friday and Saturday early evening...they grill ribs outside, together with chicken wings. The food wasn't good, especially the conch Chowder, and it's rather pricey. The restaurant across the road from the sub division offers very good food, and a nice gift shop.
Richard and I have been visiting the Florida Keys for 39 years, and we still love it. This location is perfect.
The ONE NEGATIVE we had, was the fact we had to leave, and return to the real world. Plus I don't believe Squatters are welcomed in this part of Florida.
We stayed in this wonderful home April 2015 and had the best vacation ever! The house has a great setup, everything you could possibly need is included and the location is perfect. I agree with other reviewers, the pictures do not do this property justice. We have already asked to reserve this home for our 2016 vacation - you can't get a better recommendation than that.

Ive stayed at quite a few places in the lower keys and this was by far the best! Excellent home owners, Bob was great!. The pictures do not do it justice. The view, the setup, the overall experience was wonderful. House has everything you need and then some. The only thing I would change is I would put TVs in the 2 bedrooms without one, that way you can let the kids watch there shows in another room! Overall I would recommend this place to anyone. You cant go wrong with this one! Our next stay will be right back here!
I imagine VRBO readers sometimes think that owners exaggerate their offerings. In this case, there is no exaggeration. What the owner says is accurate and valid.
We stayed for one month and the Keys captured us. The house is really as fully equipped as the write-up indicates. You will lack for nothing. The interior decorations are lovely and use the bright Keys colors...very bright and cheerful. The house is immaculate and very well maintained. We tried many of the local restaurants and were never disappointed. THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY!
We gave Bob the ultimate compliment. We rented from him again in 2015.
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.
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!!!
