Very nice place to while away the Winter

  • 4 of 5

Great little house in a great location. The house is very comfortable with a nicely equipped kitchen and very spacious living areas. The deck was our favorite hangout despite the El Nino winter with cooler temps and lots of rain. Tons of nearby restaurants and tiki bars - our favorite is the Wharf just south over the bridge on Summerland Key. The canal offered easy access to the ocean with our fishing kayak so we didn't have to car top it all over the place. And the owners are very generous with allowing use of the garage for storing bikes and fishing gear. I'll give it five stars when the new mattress arrives for the master bedroom :) January 2016

Our first stay and it was great. In fact, we have it reserved for this year! That should say it all.

Paradise in the Keys!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect, neighborhood is friendly, and the house is exactly what I hoped for. I had a wonderful time on Ramrod Key. It is the best of both worlds, quiet yet close to all the action. Thanks for a great month!!

This is a great location when visiting the Keys! The house is very comfortable and just as indicated in the description. It is close to Key West yet still in the portion of the Keys that is very laid back with a relaxing slow pace of life! There was plenty of room for parking our vehicles as well as the boat trailer. The boat ramp at the Looe Key Resort was adequate but if you have a boat longer than 24 feet it would be very tight! The access to the Atlantic and Gulf is great and many days my wife and I would fish and snorkel on the gulf side then run back to the reef on the Atlantic side for night time snapper fishing. The biggest plus for us was that we could bring our dog (Jack Russell) who loves to go on the boat!

All in all a great place, safe, secure and very comfortable! Already planning a return trip!

This was everything we hoped for and expected! We had been planning this trip for a long time for my retirement! We looked hard and long and after seeing this particular rental, knew we found the right one. We cancelled two other rentals we had found for this one. We have been to the Key's a few times and knew the area. It is located in just the right spot for snorkeling,beaching at Bahia Honda and visiting Key West. Not that far of a drive to Robbies to feed Tarpon or visit "World Wide Sportsman" for shopping,eating and seeing a replica Hemingway "Pilar". Kayak or boat to Picnic Island or Snorkel Looe Key. I even was able to Fly Fish for Bones and Tarpon close to the house. And finally enjoy our own Lobster dinner and good wine while listening to the island music on the upper deck of the house on the canal. The house is well maintained and great location if you have a boat or kayaks. Amy was the best when it came to making our visit the best it could be! We will Return!
