About Tina Lux

University of Florida Gator grads who love the appeal of the Florida Keys. As a Naval Aviator, the military has moved us all over the country but the one spot we always want to be is in the Keys. The property is our vacation spot now but will one day serve as the spot for our dream home!

Tina Lux purchased this house in 2010

Why Tina Lux chose Lower Florida Keys

Paradise Found is unique because it provides easy access to the tourism of Key West but offers tranquility and relaxation by being just a short drive from the crowds. Enjoy beautiful sunsets over the ocean from your living room or private dock; or kayak with the dolphin in your own backyard. With funky local restaurants and bars nearby, you can enjoy fresh seafood or a nice cold drink while listening to a live band.

What makes this house unique

Before we even walked into the house, we strolled out onto the dock and immediatly knew this was 'the one.' With 180 degree breath-taking views of quiet, calm turquoise waters, one knows that Paradise has been Found.

Private, quiet, and relaxing environment. Simple but tidy accommodations. Responsive owner.

Amazing sunsets. All you need to relax. 30 minutes to Cayo Heuso if you wish to fly or to party with others.

Thank you!

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Found is a lovely cottage sitting right on the bay in Ramrod Key. It is very quiet and peaceful allowing residents to enjoy the myriad of wildlife! The dock provides a wonderful spot for fishing and boating. We did not get to take the kayaks out since it was January and a bit on the cool side, but that would certainly be a nice adventure during warmer weather. Boondocks on Ramrod Key has exceptional brunches on the weekends and Kiki's on Little Torch Key has great Happy Hour treats during the week. Thanks to Tina & Mark for maintaining such a nice, clean cottage for renters! Tina responds almost instantly to any question her tenants may pose!!!!

Darling Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time here the first two weeks of October 2015. We kayaked every day around the front island and down to the "deep hole".... We saw amazing fish and sunsets every evening. Easy drive to Key West and also the "Bahia Honda" state park to the north where there are great beaches. Very nice furnishings and the beds were so, so comfortable!! The cottage was stocked well with everything you need. There is a seafood store right down the road and we had fresh spiny lobster for dinner 3 times. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the keys. Be sure and read the book that is there " The last Train to Paradise" and you will see "US 1" in a different light.... lots of games and books. Owners are great, easy reservations. Thank you so much

Doesn't Get Any Better

  • 5 of 5

I came to fish & relax and it was just what I needed and what they said it would be. A nice home and nicer owners, everything you need is already there, it's in a remote spot but very close to all you would need. Ramrod is really what the Keys is all about. I was there for a month this yr almost the whole time on my own and enjoyed everyday but I'm going again next yr for 2 months and if the 3rd month was open I would be there for that too. If this size home fits your bill and you want to get away from it all then look no more folks you have found paridise .

Paradise Found!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time. The view was outstanding and having kayaks to explore the surroundings was great.

The home was lovely and spacious. We had great weather. Stores and restaurants were nearby.

The owner was terrific! She quickly addressed the minor problem we had.

The proximity to Key West was wonderful.

Quiet location and very peaceful. Plenty of books and movies, too.
