Overview

USA House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

I know you will enjoy the sunrises and sunsets from the roof top deck or just sitting on the back porch over looking the canal. The house has dark hardwood floors through out. The kitchen is a cooks delight with stainless steel gas stove and appliances. There are granite countertops in the kitchen and bath. New West Indies style furniture in the livingroom and master bedroom. You will feel like you are at a resort!

The house has a Large Master suite and two guest bedrooms. There is also a sleeper sofa and futon. There is ample parking space under the house and a large 40 ft dock for your boat. You don't have to leave your beloved pets behind either. We are pet friendly. My dog Wahoo comes with me every time.

The house can sleep 6 adults comfortably but if you are looking to cram 8 adults into the house this is not the house for you. I prefer to rent by the month to responsible adults. This is a very nice upscale house in a quiet neighborhood. If you are wanting a house to party in and get loud please look somewhere else.

About Steve

I hope you enjoy my home as much as I do. This house has been a labor of love. I built the house myself and have tried to create the relaxing, tropical feel of old Key West. The house is well constructed, built to withstand 175 mph winds.

Why Steve chose USA

I have been coming to the Keys for years to fish and dive and fell in love with the area. It is in a great, quiet neighborhood and nearby to Key West. It has some of the best diving and fishing areas just offshore. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the Keys.

Quiet and Relaxing Spot in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful place in the Keys with all the amenities, this is your spot! Located in a quiet, upscale residential area, the house offers privacy and comfort. I enjoyed cooking in the gourmet kitchen with the awesome stove. The rooftop deck is great to catch a sunrise or sunset or just read a book and enjoy the breeze. It is wonderful to shower outdoors in privacy looking up at all the palms! The canal has quite a variety of interesting fish and I recommend putting on mask and snorkel and going for a swim.

The house is located less than 15 minutes from Bahia Honda SP, great beach to snorkel and soak up the sun and it close to a grocery store and pharmacy. The Looe Key Resort, in walking distance from house, offers daily specials and live music nightly. The resort also offers trips out to the reef at Looe Key but the winds were an issue for small crafts during our stay.

Steve is great to work with and helped us get our kayak to the house without a hitch. We look forward to staying again sometime and would highly recommend his home to anyone who loves the beauty of the Florida Keys! Thanks Steve for helping us to celebrate our 25th Anniversary.

Steve (owner) was very trustworthy and easy to communicate with. A+++

  • 5 of 5

The house is GREAT! We had a perfect getaway! Location is awesome! Good was excellent everywhere we went! Locals hang out is Looe key resort right there at turn off us1. Great specials! Boondocks up the street on right side. Excellent food but a bit more pricy for tourists. Food is step up also though. Hogfish sandwich was $15.95 and delicious. The smoked gouda Mac $10.95 awesome! We also went to kikis for burgers and other specials 11-4pm. Best pizza in keywest is duetto. I put menus in the house folder. Location is great for us. Calm, safe, quiet neighborhood. I was so comfortable i left my dive gear out to dry and didn't worry about it. It's easy drive into keywest also. I remember other rentals in marathon we were like ugh that's a haul to go party. Ramrod key is great location! Do not hesitate to call Steve and book it! Enjoy! I know you will! We'll be calling you soon enough Steve! Thanks again! Bam

Great home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes in the area from Big Pine to Cudjoe for the past 15 years or so, and this home was the nicest we have rented. It is obvious the home was recently built, and the photos very accurately depict its condition and quality. The living/kitchen area is very spacious as are the 3 bedrooms. The lower parking area is large enough to fit 3 vehicles with plenty of room for a boat trailer. My two favorite things were the outdoor rain shower (I used it almost daily) and the 3rd level crows nest. The views at night from up there were often breathtaking. The access to the Atlantic was fantastic, leaving a very short run to Looe Key, Bahia Honda and the blue water. The home is situated in a very nice residential neighborhood, through which we enjoyed walking our dog. Although we had a lot of wind which sometimes affected our ability to go offshore in our 22 foot boat, the home made our time off the water quite relaxing. We hope to rent this home again next year.

Perfect winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Brand new, gorgeous, and perfect home for a month-long winter getaway. The home was very well equipped with up-scale appliances and furniture, making a month away from home an enjoyable experience. We loved the quiet community and convenient location with quick access to open water. For land-lovers, Key West is only a 25 mile drive west. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Don't miss Looe Key snorkeling, or dinner at the Wharf. Our dog loved daily boat trips to picnic island for a romp in the shallow water and sand. We hope to rent this home again next year!

Great family vacation!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful vacation. We were so close to great restaurants, beautiful beaches, Bahia Honda, key west, and shopping.

The house was so inviting. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock. We enjoyed sunsets from the decks and cooking meals in the beautiful kitchen.

Well definitely be recommending this house and planning another vacation here soon.
