Overview

About the property

Stand Alone Cottage On An Oceanfront Property

A beautiful cottage is awaiting you on Grassy Key. Built in the original Keys architecture, the cottage is free standing with windows on all sides. The efficiency holds true to its name as it is small, but very functional. Being a stone's throw away from the ocean you can enjoy partial ocean views from your bed on the west and from your dining table on the east. It offers everything you need for a good night's sleep, a refreshing shower and a good breakfast before you start your day in tropical paradise.

After a day full of adventures don't forget to relax at our oceanfront tiki and hammock. From here there is no telling what wildlife might amaze you. If marveling at the beauty of the ocean from the shore doesn't satisfy your fascination for the ocean, then treat yourself to an outing on one of our kayaks. Head for the nearby rock ruins and be prepared to see many dazzling fish.

...back on shore, it's time to eat and we do not feel like cooking or getting in the car to find a restaurant, not a problem, the Grassy Key Outpost restaurant is next door offering a nice selection of dishes, it is also a convenience store (closed on Mondays).

In our neighborhood, Tursi, Gambit and friends are waiting to put on a show for you at the Dolphin Research Center. Home to Flipper in the 60's, DRC is located 1/4 of a mile from the property.

One mile south of us is Curry Hammock State Park. Ten miles north is Long Key State Park. Both have wonderful ocean access and trails.

Three miles out to sea is marker 45, a nice place to fish mangrove and yellowtail snappers, and a few more miles South is Coffin's Patch Reef, a delightful protected area to dive or snorkel. Both locations are a few minutes away by boat from the property.

These are merely suggestions in addition to all the wonderful things that are yours to discover throughout the Florida Keys.

Amenities At A Glance:

-Free use of kayaks

-Barbecue

-WiFi

-Washer and dryer on property.

-Conveniently located in the middle of the Keys at mile marker 58. Ideal for day trips from Marathon to Key West, Key Largo and Islamorada.

- Buoys right off property in the Atlantic for small boats, jets skis and kayaks.

- Beach towels

- Beach chairs

A great place to unwind and recharge

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Ray's Place in April to celebrate my husbands birthday. We wanted a quite place to relax, but to be close enough to Key West and Islamorado for some exploring. This was the perfect place for that. I enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning from the property. The cottage, or the Toucan as it is called was a perfect economical choice. It had everything we needed and even more than we expected. They provided outdoor grills for you use. It was nice after a busy day of sight seeing to just relax at the patio set with a glass of wine while we grilled some huge Florida shrimp.

Unfortunatly Mother nature didn't cooperate and we were unable to use the Kayaks but it was of no fault to anything other than wind. We had many great conversations with Isabelle and we would have no problem recomending Ray's Place to friends and look forward to visiting again.

Cozy and secure

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed for 5 nights. We were very comfortable and had no problems. Small place, but I felt secure on the property, even leaving my dive equipment out overnight and the car unlocked. I am usually kind of paranoid on vacation, but not at this place. We also snorkeled out from the beach on site and saw some nurse sharks and just had a good time.

Thanks!

My husband and I had the most wonderful week at this little cottage. Isabel, our host, was so kind and helpful. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the keys. We could not have been happier!

Clean, Cute and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This little cabin was a great place to relax as right on beach with kayaks to use, loved the running/biking paths just across the road as bikes were available to use as well. It was small but very friendly people to deal with.
