Property description

IN ACCORDANCE WITH MONROE COUNTY, FLORIDA REGULATIONS WE MAINTAIN A 28-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. We have no idea why VRBO says "Minimum stay 1-28 nights." Maybe it is because Expedia, the parent company, is used to the hotel booking business. As a result of just being informed of the 28-day rule, we are now available from Dec 7 to Feb 4 and possible for all of February and March as well!

Welcome to our beautiful 2500 square foot home with its 21 windows, 9 foot ceilings and soaring 20 foot foyer entryway, making this one of the lightest, most airy, and spacious vacation homes in the Keys! Newly built in 2011, we feature Berber carpeting and Spanish tile throughout the house, with new model appliances and air conditioners (one on each floor with separate thermostats.)

PLEASE READ BELOW... WE DO OUR BEST TO ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS!

What’s it Like Upstairs?

We have purposely configured our home with only 2 available bedrooms. The master bedroom is 24 feet x 14 feet with 4 windows facing our dock and canal. There is a 32” flat screen LED TV in the master as well. The master bath is 12 feet x 13 feet and features a whirlpool tub and a double vanity.

There is an open study/exercise area next to the master and, down the hall, the 13 1/2 foot by 13 1/2 foot guest bedroom with a 13 ½ foot by 5 ½ foot walk-in closet for ample storage.

There is a second full bath and shower contiguous to the guest bedroom. Both baths feature granite counter-tops.

Downstairs

Downstairs, the 20 foot high entryway leads to the Great Room where you will find comfy and inviting Natuzzi Italian leather living room furniture, a second 32” flat screen LED TV, a separate dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, granite counter-tops, rich cherrywood cabinets, and Spanish tile floors.

Off the dining area are sliding-glass doors that open onto a peaceful back porch where you can read, listen to music or simply do as we do – pour a cool refreshing drink, watch the clouds go by, and R-E-L-A-X…

How About The Grounds?

Our home is fully landscaped, and in a style that requires minimal maintenance. (That means no 7 a.m. wake-up calls from lawn maintenance people starting lawn mowers and blowing leaves around.) Help yourself to the Key limes and star fruit!

We built the fully-equipped power, water, small home-built cleaning station and dock in July of 2011. If your boat is less than 25 feet, it will fit. If larger, give us a call and we'll work something out to spring-line our boat over to our neighbors...

Is This the Perfect Getaway House for You?

Because we chose to configure our home with only the two bedrooms available, it is perfect for us -- a couple who can enjoy the run of a nice big house most of the time, but still have a guest bedroom for family or friends on the occasions they come to visit.

If that’s your situation, and you don’t want to feel cramped in your vacation paradise (or fend off 20 family members who descend on you because they've discovered you have al-l-l-l those bedrooms!) this home will be perfect for you, too!

This is OUR HOME -- and it isn't for everyone. We aren't trying to fill it all the time and we limit occupancy to 4 PEOPLE, unless we discuss other accommodations prior to your visit.

What’s the Neighborhood Like?

Quiet. There are families that live in or have been coming to Breezeswept Beach Estates every year for 30 years or more. Our canal is 10 minutes from open ocean.

The Looe Key Resort, when we want a fresh-caught fish lunch or dinner, is a 3-minute drive or a 15-minute walk. (And the famous Looe Key Reef is about a 20-minute boat ride.) Surrounding us are all sorts of natural attractions (see our guest map below) as well as man-made ones. We are midway between Marathon and Key West, which really expands our dining and entertainment options.

WHO SHOULD NOT CONSIDER OUR HOME

If you have more than 4 people or pets that are family we can't keep our home feeling brand new. 4 people will do very well with our spacious and airy rooms, even on a rainy afternoon. Many more than that on that occasional day -- NOT!

BOOKING

We like to exchange e-mails and say hello on the phone to the guests staying in our home. Personal contact comes first! Once you have signed our Rental Agreement, which can be accomplished via e-mail, you'll give us your Deposit to Hold by credit card, check or wired funds. We'll send you instructions on entry and, voila, you enjoy your vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am a 'failed retiree.' I am retired from the corporate world as well as 36 years of active and reserve military service, Army and Air Force. The portability of our current business allows my wife and I the flexibility to split our time between our long-time Lake Tahoe home, and the fabulous Lower Keys, where we snorkel, dive, walk, bicycle and kayak. When we aren't using our home in the Keys, it's yours...

Why the Owner Chose Breezeswept Beach Estates, Ramrod Key, FL, USA:
Just take a look at the satellite map up close and personal or look online for Florida Keys images and you'll see why Ramrod is so special. Midway between Key West and Marathon, just three miles from shopping and key deer on Big Pine Key, it is a world away from all that when it's time to just sit on the dock and watch the fish jump. (Our canal is open to the ocean so we see lots of marine life...) We specifically chose Ramrod Key because it is out of the hustle, bustle, noise and congestion of Key West or Key Largo -- but still close enough to the 'big cities' to make an easy day of it or evening out. It's the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You have most likely been looking forward to this vacation for weeks or months. Why not treat yourself to the best? We scrupulously maintain our home for our comfort and yours. If you'd like to experience what our previous guests have enjoyed and reviewed, we'd love to have you as our guest! We're a 3-minute drive or a 15-20 minute walk from the Overseas Highway and less than a mile from open ocean. We have everything we need within a 5-10 minute drive and everything we might want within 30 minutes. We are near the urban pleasures, dining and excitement of Key West and Marathon -- but can remain aloof from in our quiet Barbuda Lane if we choose. The house is light and airy so we never feel closed in -- but if we feel like taking a walk, there's little traffic and less worldly noise. I think the best beach in the Keys is Bahia Honda State Park -- just ten minutes away from our home. Then there is the ocean and all the wonders it bequeaths to those willing to simply take a peek... Please CALL ME before booking to see if I can save you some $$
