"Key Largo Paradise"

My family and I stayed in Kawama in the tower unit 503 and had an absloute awesome time. Everything we needed was there. It was a beautifully furnished 2/2 condo with a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facility and spacious living/dining room. The view from the balcony was great and relaxing. We were able to easily get our jetskis in and out of the water with the on site marina. There was even a beach area we could use when we just wanted to sit and relax. There were many restaurants, grocery/shopping, and specialty stores close by for any items we wanted to buy. I would definitely recommend to others and would love to rent there again!

A little bit of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this condo December 4-11, 2009 and it was fabulous. It was extremely clean and all so beautifully decorated. It is so much nicer than what the pictures portray. The Kawama complex is great and in close proximity to all nearby attractions and restaurants. My husband and I really enjoyed all its amenities and great ocean views from the balcony. We especially enjoyed watching the sunsets every day. What the owner’s claim of having great sunsets is so true. The unit is very well equipped with all you need for your vacation and your home away from home. From linens to towels, kitchen utensils, it was all there. The owners are a delight to work with. Jose made it very easy to reserve the condo. I don’t know how Jose managed but our deposit was refunded and arrived 1 day after our arrival back home. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone visiting Key Largo and the Florida Keys. We will definitely come back again and this time bring the grandkids.

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We were in distress to find a place to stay because our previous reservation at another place was cancelled by the owner without much explanation. Jose was very helpful and prompt - making everything efficient and straight forward.

The place was very clean and comfortable, fully equipped as a home away from home. We enjoyed the sunset from the balcony. The complex is situated next to the mangrove forest and it was very quiet - great for nature loving people like us.

There are great restaurants around but the best was Key Largo fisheries - only a few blocks away where they have fresh seafood everyday (we bought and cooked them ourselves). This was recommended to us by Estella.

Overall very nice stay. Will return if we visit south Florida again.

Good location, comfortable for four

  • 3 of 5

This condo is a 2/2, good for 2 couples or a small family. We were expecting something nicer and more updated for as much as we paid- perhaps should have taken holiday increase in rate into account.

Owner's Response: We regret that our home did not meet your standards. Unfortunate for us that we did not receive a five star rating for the first time in 17 years. We will review our home again and see where we can improve our standards for future guests. Wishing you plentiful future and exciting travels. Best regards, Jose & Estela

Great Family Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

The room was very nicely kept and provided a lot of space and easily fit a family of five. The lagoon (which was part of the complex) was amazing! It entertained the kids for hours. The water was clear and there were lots of fish. The pools were well maintained as well. All around it was a very good experience.

Great location for a family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying at the condo, it was extremely clean and stocked with every necessity you would need.

The conco was centrally located to all the local reefs for snorkeling and fishing.

Thank you.

Excellent place to stay at the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Kawama Tower for 18 years and hope for another 18 to come at least:) Checkin is always very easy and hosts are always available and fast to respond. Property has very easy access to the ocean, swimming pools and lagoon (where we prefer to spend our time). Key Largo fisheries is right around the corner with freshest selection of fish available. Key Largo is the best dive spot in Florida and if you are a diver or snorkeler I would highly recommend to stay here. Another very important advantage of staying at Kawama Towers is that it is 100% wheelchair accessible.
