About The Owner

I am a marine geophysicist who designed and built this unique house.

The Owner purchased this house in 1989

Why The Owner chose Ramrod Keys

The dolphin fish + lobster are plentiful; scuba diving is great in the Newfound Harbor Sanctuary. The water is much clearer, the reefs are in better shape + less crowded than in the upper keys.

There are lots of cultural and sporting events in the area.

What makes this house unique

We are next to 3 tidal lakes with blue crabs in them. The osprey, heron, iguana + key deer are visible daily. Just relaxing on the balcony is wonderful.

We have a small picnic island just out the canal where locals gather. Free live entertainment is occasionally provided.

We are a short boat ride to the international resort, 'Little Palm Island.'

Unbelievable Views and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We've been home now for a few months, but all we can talk about is our stay at Looe Key Villa! From the moment we arrived, we were mesmerized by the views and the house. We ran around like little kids exploring all the amazing balconies and views. Every room has a balcony looking out to the canal or the ocean. We spent mornings watching the sun rise, and evenings under the starriest skies we've ever seen - because the house is so far from other light pollution - the stars are really intense. The owners were incredibly easy to work with and kind. We asked them a question or two during our stay and they responded right away. The location was perfect for us because we enjoyed the quiet, relaxation - sitting on the balconies and dock, watching the boats come in and out - but we were also about a 20-30 minute scenic drive from the nightlife of Key West. It's the best of both worlds. The rooms are well appointed and clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils (obviously, you bring your own food) - we had more than everything we needed to cook our meals. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay! We'll definitely be back here the next time we're at the end of the US!

A Great Place for Family

  • 5 of 5

I tried to hit 5 star but, for some reason, nothing happened when I chose it.

My family and I spent our first stay on Ramrod at this home.(Usually stay on Big Pine). Most enjoyable was easy access to the deep water. We were able to wrangle lobsters a half mile from the house! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy the water and have easy access to all the water activities. Good for couple with or without children. My grandson caught fish right off the dock. The home is a very casual laid back place where we felt comfortable and at home. Enjoyed the Tiki Bar right at the end of the road. Also, convenient access to all diving supplies. Comfortable beds, plenty of seating, lovely balconies.....nothing more to ask for. Thank you for allowing us to stay. My sweet Jack (our 4 legged child) loved chasing iguanas!!

Incredible Slice Of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A group of us decided on this home because we wanted easy boat access to open water and some privacy. When we arrived, we were quite pleased with the location and cleanliness as well.

We were focused on boating, fishing, diving and drinking- so not being on Key West's back porch was a plus (a half hour away). We had a blast fishing for small fish off the dock and were a little ticked that lobster were out of season- they were everywhere.

The only bad thing I can say is that it was a beast mooring our 20' boat when the wind was blowing >10 out of the east. That dock is in a little wind tunnel.

We highly recommend this little slice of paradise for families, couples and friends.

Amazing week kayaking and more

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week here with my husband and grown children. We loved the home and location. My brother had rented a home on the other side of channel so we would kayak and swim and jet ski between homes it was great. Wonderful place to have family time relax and enjoy the beautiful water of the keys . Snorkeling was amazing at Looe Key. Planning on going back next year. Thanks Peg for your kindness next year I hope we can have that snorkel trip together.

mini season

  • 5 of 5

This listing met my expectations and then some. We have been comming down for mini lobster season for years and this place was great. Just up the road is a Tiki bar one can walk to. The dock handled a 27 foot boat with ease. We were a party of 4 adults with 3 kids and found the listing very comfortable. Easy access to load and offload the boat at a local ramp for free. Peg could not have been easier to deal with and was very accessable by phone / email. We had such a good time we booked already for next mini season. Not to brag but we limited out on the 1'st day by 10:30. Views, comfort, key life style and hospitality what more can you ask for! Thanks again Peg.

Wow diver10!

I have been coming to this house for about 10 years and every time there is improvements

The TV upgrade was nice a couple years ago and the living room furniture was changed out.

Water is not an issue, even with a group in the house. Between showering, rinsing gear, etc, never ran out of water even in the middle of a drought.

The cleaning crew has always done a good job of having the house clean on arrival.

They have also been fair when we left the house a mess, which isn't nice to do but we were in a hurry to leave a couple of times.

This the kind of place where you go to get in touch with Florida keys living. Comfortable house with great views. I come to this listing to keep me going at work until I have the chance to come back!

Mangroves are part of the keys, no getting rid of them.

Maybe diver10 should stay at the Sheraton in Key West
