Additionally one of the pools is a large palm fringed saltwater swimming lagoon which is approximately 300 metres long and incorporates swimming platforms for the children and has many colourful Fish to feed. There are two all weather floodlit tennis courts. There's a marina and dockage slips are available to rent locally. We have a small beach area giving access to the Ocean for swimming and snorkelling. together with some seating and sun loungers just 2 minutes walk or 150 yards from the Kawama Tower.

The community is gated for privacy and enjoys 24hr manned security.

ATTRACTIONS and DISTANCES : Great for anglers and watersports enthusiasts - or just relaxing! Keen anglers will already be aware that the Florida Keys are the sport fishing capital of the world. Excellent fishing is available from the docks, beaches and bridges, as well as boat trips to suit all pockets. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing are simply a way of life for Keys residents. Visitors are able to hire equipment and join in. If you fancy something a little more relaxing there is sailing or casino cruises departing from Key Largo daily. One of our personal favourites, Dolphin Encounters, an interactive dolphin program, is next door to Kawama. There are also a number of fine Golf Courses within easy driving distance. Miami is one hour away with the Sea Aquarium (Sea World) and the Monkey Jungle. The Everglades National Park is also within one hour with the excitement of Alligator farms and air boat rides. Theatre Of The Sea is 15 miles away in Islamorada.

FINE DINING & OTHER IDEAS FOR A DAY OUT: Alternate days out. Snorkelling aboard the Quicksilver Catamaran : A day by the beach with a Caribbean Flavour....lazing in the sun, listening or dancing to Soca and Reggae and drinking some cocktails. Perhaps you fancy hiring a small craft or a jet-ski to cool off: A fascinating educational tour...then we enjoyed enormously our visits to The Turtle Hospital : Robbies ~ 'Amazing,' 'breathtaking' and 'impressive' are words often heard from first-time visitors to the end of Robbies dock. What they're referring to is the school of 100+ giant tarpon that live here, a 'buck' buys a bucket of baitfish and bedlam ensues as Pelicans and Silver Kings compete for Lunch: Crane Point Hammock ~ This unique 63-acre site is home to the Museum of Natural History, Children's Museum, Adderley Town Historic Site, Marathon Wild Bird Center and an extensive nature trail system that leads through a dense tropical forest to a spectacular view of Florida Bay. Ask us about our recommendations for Fine Dining.

CLOSE TO NATURE IN THE FLORIDA KEYS: The Florida Keys sitting at the end of the Everglades are full of magnificent and exciting wildlife including interesting birds such as Pelicans, Ibis, Egrets, Herons, Eagles and Ospreys. Kawama enjoys the position of being set on an unspoilt peninsular between the virgin habitat of a bird sanctuary to the south and the beautifully preserved John Pennekamp Marine Coral State Park to the north. Dolphins can often be seen from the shore and if you are very lucky you may glimpse the beautiful but endangered Manatee. A trip at dusk to see the miniature Key deer is also a must for animal lovers. For further details ask for our website address.

                                  Situated on the southern tip of Key Largo on the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by azure seas the locality is truly beautiful for the discerning visitor seeking that holiday of a lifetime in the unique Florida Keys. We are just a convenient 70 minutes drive from Miami. Kawama enjoys the position of being set on an unspoilt peninsular between the virgin habitat of a bird sanctuary to the south and the beautifully preserved John Pennekamp Marine Coral State Park to the north.

                                  Before we bought, we stayed at properties adjacent to US.1. We also viewed similar properties within 50 miles on the Keys chain that offered the ability to rent weekly as we always knew we wanted to cover some of the costs of ownership through renting the apartment. Our Kawama Tower apartment benefits from being REALLY QUIET - at 3/4 mile off US1, and literally on the Ocean, it is peaceful. We found traffic noise invasive at night when you wanted to sleep with properties that stand alongside US1.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 1999

                                  About the owner: We have owned and rented our displayed unit since 1999. \\Most important to note, unlike the majority of properties you see for rent, our Condo to us is not just an income generating rental property, it is our second home where we look to spend quality time. This means to you as a potential renter that the property is impeccably maintained and the specification of furnishings is what you would want it to be in your own home. Sally is a chartered accountant =CPA , so our honesty and professionalism may be relied on. We also manage a wider portfolio of investment rental properties in various locations so have a broad experience of property management.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Key Largo Yacht Club:
                                  * Furnished as the owners home rather than a pure rental with all that entails in terms of overall decor and the quality and range of fixtures and fittings down to the small detail kitchen equipment you can actually feel as though you were at home with. * If you are visiting in the Keys, chances are you will enjoy the Keys Style design themes in the property. * Spacious = 135m2 / 1350 sq feet all on one level - check out the size of virtually any other two bedroom property in the Keys - nearly all are considerably smaller in design. * Open plan format in living space enhances sense of space. * Elevated Views from 4th floor balcony - see pictures. * All on one level with elevator access * Away from the noise of busy US1 - most rental accommodation and hotels are adjacent the highway in the Keys.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                                  We had been vacationing in the Keys for many years and looking for a suitable property to buy which would offer a range of quality amenities, space and a tranquil location. Our choice was eventually easy after reviewing every condominium community virtually from Key West, through Marathon and upto Key Largo. We even rented some to test the locations for potential purchase and living in those locations. We settled on Kawama Tower owing to the unique combination of location as it's in the middle of everything and the location amenities within the community are what we were looking for. These include three swimming pools for your use. Two are tiled 'heated' pools including the 'Oasis Pool' which is conveniently situated just 30 metres/100 feet from the elevator. Additionally one of the pools is a large palm fringed salt-water swimming lagoon which is approximately 1000 feet long and incorporates swimming platforms for the children and has many colourful Parrot Fish to feed and snorkel with. There are two floodlit hard tennis courts. There's a marina and dockage slips are available to rent locally. We have a beach area just 2 minutes walk or 150 yards from the Kawama Tower. This is landscaped with palm trees and themed with ‘South Seas’ style Tikki shelters for shade with plenty of seating and several beach barbecues for your free use. The community is gated for privacy and enjoys 24hr security. The grounds are landscaped, with tropical foliage and flowers growing everywhere, and there is a landscaping contract that maintains the grounds each week. In combination, all of these elements make an attractive destination to visit. Both for us as owners, and for you as guests looking for quality accommodation for your vacation.
