We arrived to a very clean and inviting unit at the Kawama Club in January 2013. It was beautiful weather for the month of January in the mid to high 70 almost every day and we only one day of rain. The unit is beautiful, clean and accommodates easily 8-10 people. The Lagoon, Beach and Pool were great for those hot summer days. We talked to the owner on several occasions and he was always very accommodating and pleasant to talk with. We really enjoyed our vacation rental and the surrounding area. It sure has that Island feeling at kawama Yacht Club. There are lots of Great Restaurants close by for that Seafood dinner you might be craving. It was the perfect vacation rental and we hope to be back some day soon!!!! Thanks

Party of 5
Party of 5
I am a Floridian. I have been to the keys several times. I know what it is like, meaning I understand the "relaxed" way of life. However this was a joke...Kawama Yacht Club's management obviously lives this "relaxed" way of life as well as the owners of the unit and the cleaning lady. When we arrived at the guard house. We could not get in. The owner never sent over our paperwork that showed we had reserved a unit and also the make and model of our vehicle. Thank goodness I had a printed copy of our contract and paperwork. The girl at the gate was kind enough to take all the actions to make sure we were not held up long. We could not get a hold of the owner (it was a Sunday), by luck, the cleaning lady drove by so we called her, she then called the owner which in turn called the gate. 20 minutes later and holding up other vehicles trying to get in, we made it. The grounds were getting some maintenance and the unit was briefly clean. There were animal hairs everywhere. I don't think the unit was ever swept, just wiped down. The fans haven't been dusted in a long time. The 2nd level door would not close entirely leading to the balcony and the ants (all kinds) were crazy. I believe the cleaning lady only changes the towels, sheets and washes the dishes. Which in my case I did most of before I left so the next people would have a cleaner place to stay. The pools were heated, yes heated, like swimming in warm pee. Dont let them fool you, you CAN NOT swim in the tower pool unless staying in the tower. The pools for this condo are very old, moldy, too warm and just not refreshing at all. One of them was closed.The lagoon is really dirty, lots of algae pockets everywhere. The kids were grossed out to swim in it. You can't enjoy it from all the yuck. The beach is even worse. Garbage, garbage, garbage. The point/jetties is full of garbage as well. What I don't understand is that every single person I asked about the why they didnt have a trash bin at the point where everyone fishes all claimed they didnt work there, yet their golfcarts where full of maintenance things. The first morning we were woke up at 8 am by the lawn guys, the 2nd morning the plumber was 2 ft outside our door (REALLY 2ft ) tampering/groundpounding the ground flat...all before 8am. If you dont know what tampering is,lets just say, a helicopter landing on your roof. The internet sucks and you can barely get any reception.However, we made the best of it and enjoyed our time in the "relaxed" keys

Owner response: Thank you for your feedback. Based on the multitude of complaints I feel that the rental home may not have been suited for you. I understand that it is not for everyone and am sorry you discovered this after your stay, rather than before as it seems you were expecting more of a luxury hotel. The Florida Keys is known for its “laid back” atmosphere however, that does not mean that the staff of Kawama are not professional and courteous. Rest assured the car information is provided to the guard gate for all of my guests as it was for yours however, human error does exist so it is possible that it was misplaced. I can assure you that I do not have an issue with renters contacting me any day of the week or time and that does include Sundays however, as the renter you do have to make the call. You can see from my other reviews that I resolve all matters in a timely manner. In your case the first and only point of contact during your entire stay was with the cleaning lady Diane who in turn called me in which I contacted the guard immediately resolving the issue. I was surprised by your comments, especially since you advised Diane the cleaning lady that everything was Fantastic. As for the unit, it is cleaned by Diane who does do a thorough cleaning such as dusting, sweeping, mopping, washes all linens, etc. Being however, that the cleaning may not be to everyone’s standards, Diane is courteous enough to leave a card in the unit with all of her contact information in the case that you are not satisfied or need anything further. Diane would have been more than happy to have resolved the matter for you should you have called her when you first noticed. The swimming pool available for my unit is located directly behind it. Please let it be known the Tower pool is not the designated pool. It is pretty disturbing that you would insinuate that I "fool" my guests as at no point did I even speak of the Tower pool as it has no relevance to the unit you rented, not sure why you even attempted to go there. The Florida Keys is a boater, diver, and fisherman’s dream. It is a place of peace, relaxation and harmony and appreciated by most. Many of the complaints are regarding the natural state of the Keys in which I cannot control. Again, I am sorry that you encountered so many disappointments as this was a vacation and should have been enjoyed. I do understand that not everyone can be pleased so I can only wish you the best towards your future endeavors.
Overall good place to stay and owners nice to work with. Rain caused shower to backflow but was fixed next day. Two of the baths are very tiny and get really stuffy when showering. Beds are comfy but sheets and pillows are uncomfortable. The floor was really dirty too and our feet were always black.

Unit R5 was comfortable, clean, and outfitted with everything we needed, including a golf cart, beach chairs, and floating toys. Great kitchen for our group with high-end everything. Reviewers who have criticized the resort because of smells and the beach not being clean are simply not familiar with the variety of marine habitats of the Keys. The "dirty" beach is actually a beach with sea grass growing at the bottom, which attracts a neat variety of little fish you can observe if you snorkel, which is easy, because the beach is shallow and calm. You can also see fish along the big rocks. The smell that you can detect in a small area of the marina is actually a natural byproduct of the mangroves in that area, and can't be smelled anywhere people go to lounge by the ocean, or at the condos. So, if you understand the nature of the area, you will appreciate the resort. Security was good, very helpful and courteous. The unit's owner was available and helpful during our stay a couple times we needed to ask questions. Overall, a very comfortable condo and a great experience.

Enjoying the Keys
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The condo was everything I expected and more. I do wish the ant population was a little better controlled but I do understand it's a fact of life in the Keys. Looking forward to the Feb. vacation.

Great Place to Stay if you want to enjoy the Keys
If you're looking for a nice quite place to stay and enjoy the Florida keys I would say this is one of the nice places I have stayed at.People are friendly and you can enjoy bring your boat down for a little fishing. You have a nice jetty that goes out about a quarter mile for the marine where you can enjoy the sunsetsYou are in John Pennkamp State Park waters and a lot of Reefs and Fishing Areas right in the area of the property. I caught dolphin, sailfish groupers and yellow tail snapper three to four miles away for the marina! That was the highlight of my vacation!! I would consider this a Central Location for all of this fun in the sun. Thank for all the fun we had there and hope to visit the following year!!
