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.

Perfect Hide-away

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this place and we were so sad to leave. We stayed in October, just two of us. My wife and I really loved the location - close enough to Key West for day trips, and close enough to Marathon and points north for local food, aquariums (Aquarium Encounters, Dolphin Research Center, etc.), and yet so far away from hustle and bustle and traffic and crowds. Awesome snorkeling just around the dock and around Ramrod Key, but also easy enough to find other snorkeling points within a day's drive. We enjoyed the 2-person kayaks, fireplace, grill, WiFi, A/C, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, etc. Everything was clean and easy to use. All the necessary appliances, cookware, utensils, and towels are provided. And if the dock is too breezy the deck on land works really well for watching all the glorious sunsets. If this was not enough, the open-air restaurant/bar Boondocks is within walking distance (half mile or so). The wildlife was spectacular, including cormorants, great blue herons, ibis, blue crabs, frogs, and numerous fish, etc. We've been vacationing in the lower keys for several years now and this is our new favorite. We will be eagerly waiting for our next opportunity to return. It was just perfect.

The best Vacation in Years!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing vacation ever!!!!! This house!!! That ocean!! The name of "Paradise Found" is so perfect for this property! We were there for 36 days and we didn't want to leave!!!! The house was so cute and comfortable. The silence all around; no loud neighbors. Perfect distance to key west. And all the entertaining you might think of minutes away!! The sunsets and sunrises are breathtaking. My family will forever be grateful for this home and our time there. 💚

Perfect size & location with a million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to get away from the typical northeast beach vacation with our two young sons (5&6) and planned this for a while. Without having seen the rental first hand, you are really taking a chance that you aren't going to get what you hoped for. Trust me when I say that you can take a chance with this house. It isn't a palace but it is very nicely decorated and we really didn't need anything. The weather was 85 degrees and 85% humidity for our whole stay so it was awesome beach weather. The boys were besides themselves watching the wildlife from the dock. Swimming and snorkeling at Bahai Honda was awesome for everyone.

Almost every night we fished from the dock and caught everything from bonnetheads, nurse sharks, barracuda and grunts. We made so many memories that we will never forget that house.

We will definitely go back when we can and we totally recommend the house. The street is relatively quiet and the immediate neighbors are very nice. There is a large swimming hole down the street that tends to attract "different" types of people and we wouldn't hang out there with the kids but they always seemed to have a blast down there.

Boondocks has surprisingly good food and the wait staff is very friendly. There is miniature golf there and live bands every night. It's far enough away that you aren't bothered by it, but close enough if you "needed" to walk.

If you have never been to the keys, the lower keys are where its at and Ramrod is a perfect middle ground.

Thanks Tina for everything!

Off the beaten path

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!!!!
