Ramrod Key cottage description

Your Front Door is only 42 feet from the Ocean !
Only 5 Steps (Most rentals in the Keys are on Stilts and have a lot of steps to climb)
Tiki Hut is Only 4 Inches from the Water !
We only have this one rental and do all of the cleaning ourselves. We even wash the shower curtain liner before EACH rental. This way you know that it is clean in case it touches you while showering.
Plenty of Off Street Parking for Your Car & Trailer
WiFi Broadband Internet Access (In the Efficiency or under the Tiki Hut while watching the boats go by ! )
BBQ Grill is only 3 feet from the water (Enjoy the View while cooking your Dinner)
Kitchen with 4 Burner Smooth top Range, Microwave & Frig.
Dockage for your Boat Along Cement Seawall, Cleates & Fenders
Southern Exposure
Quick Access to Gulf or Atlantic
Roll-Up Blinds on ALL Windows (Except Bathroom Window which is Frosted)
Dive Shop is located 1 mile away (they do Daily Dive and Snorkel Trips to Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary)
No Pets;
No Smoking Anywhere (indoors or outdoors)
No Loud Music
2 Person Maximum (Child or Infant count as a Person)
A Car is recommended. The Bus Station is 1 mile away and does not come very often.
Has been with HomeAway since 2011

The Efficiency has a private entrance from the outside and can not be entered from the main house. The Efficiency is like a cottage that is attached to the main house. The common wall between the Efficiency and the main house is your Laundry and Storage area. This makes the Efficiency private from the main house. The owners (husband, wife and NO children) live in the main house, but the lot is a large lot about the size of 4 normal size lots in the Keys. They do not have any pets, so you can walk about freely without being bothered by pets. The Efficiency is usually very quiet (many of our Guests have fallen asleep under the Tiki hut in the daytime), but occasionally our neighbor rents out his house to vacationers who are noisy. It is important to us that our guests be happy with the Efficiency, that is why we wanted to point this possibility out because the Keys are a vacation destination and this does not happen often but it can happen. If you read the reviews of the past Guests, you can see that it has not been a problem; we just wanted to let you know that it is possible.
