Another year, another great time

  • 5 of 5

Once again we very much enjoyed our stay on Ramrod Key. Every year the house has more than lived up to our expectations! Very resonably priced, great canal location, and always clean and ready for us to arrive.

The owners are always interested in making sure our stay is a good one, and it showed even more this year, as everything was well back to normal from the hurricane.

After spending the last 7 winter's on Ramrod, I believe that this home to be the best value on the key.

Absolutely amazing recovery from Hurricane Irma!

  • 5 of 5

I love the location of this house at the end of the street so you can watch the boats going up and down the main canal. And now with the mangroves across the canal being thinned out by the hurricane, you can see the ocean and the next Key from the porch. The house is clean, comfortable, and bright. The owners stock it with all the paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and cleaning supplies you’ll ever need. And there are kayaks and two brand new cruiser bikes in the storage area. Can’t go wrong with this house!

A bit storm battered, but still a wonderful place to be - location, location, location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is close to just about everything in the Keys - beaches, shopping, and, of course, Key West. We were concerned, with reports of Hurricane Irma's impact, that the Keys might not be the best vacation spot for us. We shouldn't have been. We've stayed here for several years now and working with the landlord is easy with any problems (there weren't any this stay) quickly resolved. While the evidence of the storm was everywhere, the progress in removing debris and restoring things to normal (if ever the Keys can be "normal") in the month we were there was remarkable. This property had been cleaned up and the only evidence of the storm were some damaged palm trees and a missing deck. The main canal was blocked when we arrived, but cleared out enough to allow the large dive boat to resume trips to the reef. The biking trail along Highway 1 was also blocked, but that too was cleared within a couple of weeks. This property sustained no observable damage to the living quarters which remain well-equipped and comfortable - really everything you'd need to enjoy the stay - fully equipped kitchen, good cable TV channels (who stays indoors???), laundry supplies, extra paper towels and TP, detergents - everything you'd need is provided. The only issue we had was with the bedroom pillows but we travel everywhere with our own so that wasn't really an issue. You're on your own for food if you don't want to prepare your own but there are several choices for eating out on this Key - Boondocks and Five Brothers and the Dive Tiki locally, and too many other choices in the area to mention. And Big Pine Key is a short drive away and has a good grocery store and other shopping choices, including a weekly weekend flea market. The kayaks and the new bikes are an added plus and the new dock to replace the one destroyed in the storm is great. We missed the big deck, but there was gravel placed there and that area was great for sunning and watching the boats go up and down the canals. The neighborhood was buzzing with repairs to homes that had been damaged (tornadoes, we were told, did much of the damage on this Key) but that was not as much a distraction as a sign of a resilient group of neighbors, who, to a person, were friendly and helpful in spite of the losses that some had suffered. I can't think of a better place to stay, which is why we've returned here the past few years and look forward to returning again next winter.

Three Lakes wi

House was very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

This place is very nice with a vaulted ceiling and walk in tile shower in the master bath .

Dock space is good and the neighborhood is of course very good .

The owners are very professional and do an excellent job maintaining this property.

I would certainly rent from them again were I venturing to the 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!
