Ramrod Key house description

'PARADISE FOUND' Relaxing in the beautiful Florida Keys, it does not get any better than this! Swimming and snorkeling in the clear open water canal, join world renowned Looe Key Marine Sanctuary & Dive with Certified Divers & Instructors, or just head down to Key West for all the night life and fine dining that it has to offer. This 2 bedroom 2 bath has all the comforts of home in this tropical paradise island setting.

There is a beautiful screened balcony patio upstairs which overlooks your own private dock & open water canal. It is a great place for your morning coffee, lunch, or afternoon cocktails. There is also a downstairs patio area with a gas barbeque grill and sunbathing area.

This Home offers a long dock for your boat, and a fish fillet station with sink, lights, and running water. The dock also has Davits to lift your boat out of the water to keep it high & Dry. There is a boat ramp within walking distance.

There is Satellite LED HDTV in the living room, Master Bedroom, and 2nd Bedroom. There is a DVD Player and a nice stereo system that has a dock for MP3 Players or iPhone's. This home was totally rehabbed in 2010 so everything is like brand new. A very comfortable home for sure! This Home is a very peaceful and relaxing place to call your own.

Keep in touch with loved ones via WI-Fi . There is also WI-Fi at Looe Key Resort.

This home is a 3 block walk to 5 Brothers Two Grocery which has the best Cuban coffee and sandwiches in the Keys. Only 1 block to Boondocks Bar and Grill, a great place to eat and listen to live music most nights in the large tiki open air restaurant. You definitely get the island atmosphere, and they also have a great miniature golf course. There is also a Winn Dixie grocery store on Big Pine Key, just minutes away by car.

Also you must visit the 'NO NAME PUB' the oldest bar and grill in the Florida Keys. They are world renown for their brick oven pizza and over 200,000 plus dollar bills that cover the entire walls and ceilings. Just a short 10 minute drive from your home. Our favorite place to dine out is 'The Square Grouper' just a 10 minute drive toward Key West. It has the finest seafood the keys has to offer.

Of course, one of the best things about this home is its close proximity to Key West. This quaint, historical southernmost city is always entertaining and has some of the finest dining establishments anywhere. It is hard to choose, there are so many to pick from. Visit Ernest Hemingway's home. There are so many activities to enjoy, from sunset cruises to snorkeling adventures, Mallory Square and everything in between.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We are a middle age couple. We Love to go boating, fishing, jet ski, or just relax lying in our hammock while the steak & lobsters sizzle on the grill.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ramrod Key:
                      We bought here because of the close proximity to the very best attractions that the Florida Keys has to offer. Situated between Marathon & Key West, Ramrod Key is a very peaceful and secluded Island with much too offer. It is also a short boat ride to the Atlantic Ocean or The Gulf. We have a little place we all go to called Picnic Island.. Ask any neighbor and they will guide you there. Palm Island Resort is just around the corner also. It is a 5 star luxury spa resort with fine dining on the ocean. You can only get there by boat. There is local pick up and drop off spot close by. When we bought this gorgeous home we updated,remodeled, and rehabbed it. All the stairs are new using Treks (NO ROT) lumber. We also re did the dock and used Treks there a well. We built an outdoor shower so when you get back from the beach or fishing you can easily clean up without messing the house. You will fall in love with this shower! Lots of hangers for bathing trunks and towels.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This Home is ideal for the fact that it sits on the Ocean side (Atlantic) and we are literally minutes to the Open Blue Water. Also we have easy access to the Gulf (BAY) side when the weather conditions are not the best. The fishing is awesome. If you want, just sit at the Tiki Bar and listen to live music nightly 7 days a week.
