About Dr. Marianne Elia

Hi! We're the Elia's... George and Marianne and our children Nicolas, Danielle and Kirsten. We're the proud owners of this beautiful Tower condo overlooking the yacht club, and the Atlantic Ocean, as shown in the photo above looking back from the 400' Esplanade to our Kawama Tower building. See our photos for view from our balcony!!! Check out our Video tour. It will give you a good idea of our beautiful condo, it's location relative to ocean views and the Kawama Yacht Club property.

Dr. Marianne Elia purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dr. Marianne Elia chose Key Largo

Key Largo is close to both Miami and Ft. Lauderdale International Airports, and is a fantastic island from which to explore the Keys. Key Largo was our choice as we wanted an oceanfront location, without any noise from the Intercoastal Hwy (US#1). All amenities and attractions are so close, and the Keys atmosphere prevails. Location is the best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

Kawama is situated well off of US#1, and is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on one side, 'parkland' with John Pennekamp State Park just to the north and a bird sanctuary to the southwest. Very quiet and relaxing location, with beautiful professionally maintained grounds. Yet it is so conveniently located to the major shopping areas and restaurants in Key Largo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful place to enjoy a few days of paradise!

Your condo is lovely.

We especially enjoyed dinner at Marker 88 and Ballyhoo’s.

Your kitchen is just beautiful, and I enjoyed not cooking for a few days :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay! The distance to the ocean, not including the marina right in front of us, is 100m or less. You can't get very much closer to the ocean! And the ocean views are spectacular! We recommend you go to the end of the esplanade for great sunsets and sunrises! Our furniture is only 5 years old and in good condition, very good quality and in good shape, in a up-scale tropical theme (not like others), as shown in the photos. Our condo at 1322 sf is large, all on one floor and in an open-concept design flaring out to the ocean in a v-like design. Separate spacious second living quarters are included, with separate external entrance, bedroom and bathroom with hallway separating it from the main living area. Separate full laundry room also! Tennis racquets and pool toys are also in the condo, available for your use.

We really enjoyed our stay. More spacious and less expensive than any hotel in the area.. Plus was having a washer and dryer available was a major bonus. Conveniently located in Key Largo to many good restaurants and John Pennekamp State Park. Complex very secure with guard and gated. Great email communication with Marianne the owner.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gregory for your review. Yes our condo is very spacious with a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. We strive to keep our condo in a state that renters will love. It is fully equipped with abundant towels, kitchen pots/pans and supplies. The condo is close to everything shopping and entertainment/excursion wise yet tucked away on the Atlantic Coast so there is no Hwy #1/Overseas Highway noise.
