Manager info

Year Purchased: 1976

About: The Owner and the house's name are unique and has have a lot of history behind it. The name 'Villa Marquesa' means the 'Grand Home of the Marquis' in Spanish. The Owner's grandfather was a Spanish Marquis and part of the Spanish Royalty and Nobility. Her family history in Spain goes back 750 years, to a time of chivalry, conquests and conquistadors. We have owned had this home for years and just love it. it is our own piece of Caribbean Paradise. We have traveled the world but are always drawn back to the Florida Keys. We love the climate, the nature, the warm ocean and especially the people. The people are what makes the Keys and Key West on of the most special places on earth. Here weird and strange are 'normal' and conventionality are frowned upon!

Why Breezeswept Beach Estates, Ramrod Key, FL, USA:
Villa Marquesa was one of the first homes built on the Atlantic/ Ocean Side of Ramrod Key, in Breeze Swept Beach Estates, that's why its architecture is very distinctive and unique. The home is built on a perfect east-west / north-south axis in order to take advantage of the Tropical Caribbean Trade winds. The home is decorated in authentic Caribbean Colonial style and filled with teak and mahogany furniture which give you the feeling of staying at one of the great Caribbean Beach side Villas. You can fish right off the dock, or just bring bread to feed them but the best fishing sites are off Little Palm Island or by boat off Bahia Honda bridge. If you want deep-sea fishing you can go to American Shoal Light House or past Looe Key Reef. You can also rent kayaks to go up and cruise the canals to see birds, iguanas,and the occasional winter manatee.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The Villa Marquesa vacation home is located on the Ocean Side of Ramrod Key, between Mile Marker mm 26 and 27.5. We call our Lower Keys Islands, the windy keys due to their favorable geographical position, which allows the flow of tropical trade winds to blow in all directions, delivering its cooling breezes and also reducing mosquito. Luckily our average temperatures never dip below the 60's in winter and never rise above the 90's even in the hottest summers, making theses islands a true Tropical Caribbean Paradise all year around. We owe our great weather to the Caribbean Tropical Trade Winds and the Gulf Stream, a super current of warm Caribbean water that constantly bathes our islands year round. That's why you will see an abundance of Tropical plants, animals, fish and corals. The warm winter water temperatures also allows for year round snorkeling, fishing, diving , beach-going or other water-sports.
