About Joe Mittler

Our family has been traveling to the Keys since 1994. We fell in love with the Island Chain many years ago and finally realized our dream and bought our home. We have rented many different homes throughout the Keys and have an appreciation for what makes a great vacation home.

Joe Mittler purchased this house in 2011

Why Joe Mittler chose Ramrod Key

•Located on the corner of 2 canals with a great view of the sunset and view of the water

•Located on a quiet dead end street, a mile away from US 1

•Oceanside of the island, near Looe Key Reef, short 5 minute idle to open water (No bridges)

•Dock as well as all the amenities of home, just bring your clothes!

•Two Tiki bars an restaurants within a couple miles

•About ten minutes to Bahia Honda Beach and State park (Rated a top 10 Beaches in US)

•If you are in the mood for hustle and bustle, Key West is only a short drive away.

What makes this house unique

The Ocean is a fantastic place to be awe struck. Our home is close to two of the largest Tiki Bar/Restaurants in the Lower Keys that has nightly live entertainment and great food. Located a half mile down the road, is Boondocks, which has the Only Putt-Putt course in the Lower Keys.

Great vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home on Ramrod Key. It was very comfortable and well equipped. This home fit our needs perfectly. The loft bedroom was great to have when two of our grandchildren came to visit for a week. They loved it ! Having two kayaks and four bikes available was a big plus. The access ramp to the canals is another big plus making it easy to launch the kayaks. We love the central location and being at the end of the street where you have the canal on two sides of the property. We would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Also want to say what a pleasure it was working with the owner. He made everything run seamlessly. Great Experience!

Got to really relax for a month!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house suited all of our needs perfectly, and the location is perfect. We have already booked for next year, and will book this same house every year til I can no longer tow a boat. The bikes and the kayaks made the trip even more fun. The owners are very easy to deal with, and the house is clean and well stocked. My wife and I would very much recommend renting this house. Can't wait till next year!

Perfect place to spend time in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We're a retired couple and we've been here now in January for several years - fantastic location, close to everything you might need - restaurants, shopping, and, of course, Key West. Nightlife or wildlife and beaches (we enjoy Bahai Honda state park) are close by and the home is comfortable and well-equipped with plenty of space for an occasional guest in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. There's also a primitive park nearby on the Key which offers fantastic views of sunsets. We especially enjoy watching the boats leave and come back into the canals and there's a surprising variety of fish swimming next to the spacious deck. Ramrod is also a good place to walk, or with the equipment provided by the owners, bike or kayak. The owners are friendly and exceptionally easy to work with, communicating well and resolving problems (and in three years there was only one, with an ice maker) quickly. If we're not here, you, and your family should be! Love it!

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 months in this lovely home and loved every minute of it. The home looks like the photos, very clean and neat. Even the first floor (where kayaks and bicycles are stored was clean and dry) As you climb the outside stairs you have access to the covered patio or enter the house in the kitchen/dining area. The living room is visible as the home has an open concept. Down the hall is a bathroom, 2nd bedroom and master suite with a nice stand up shower in the bathroom. The king size bed was very comfortable. An additional bedroom can be found at the top of the spiral staircase.

The canal along side of the property empties into a shallow bay (it does have a channel deep enough for boats) the shallow areas are great for kayaks because boats can't access the area. We saw a variety of fish, found an island to picnic on and treasure the time spent exploring the area.

There are two restaurants within walking distance. We ate at

both many times and found that Taco Tuesday at Lookeys is very popular so get there early.

This is a quiet area with friendly neighbors. Our visit was fantastic on the happy scale and Joe is a wonderful host. He was always available when we had a question and his directions were easy to follow. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and our experience here with Joe has been the best. I hope we have an opportunity to visit again soon.

Excellent property, very well equipped, with lots of activities for the entire family. Centrally located, yet far enough away to avoid congestion and not be isolated. All needs are supplied within a 5 mile radius, food, beverages, air fills, gas, bait and tackle.
