About the property

"Paradise by the Sea" ~ 4th Floor 2/2 Condo in Kawama Yacht Club Tower, Key Larg

Kawama Yacht Club, a beautifully landscaped gated resort, is set on an unspoiled peninsula between the untouched habit of a bird sanctuary to the south and the beautifully preserved John Pennekamp Marine Coral Reef State Park to the north.

Located on the 4th floor of the prestigious oceanfront 5 story tower, this perfectly appointed condo has free wifi, a laundry room, a private balcony, dining area, living room area and fully stocked kitchen.

The Master bedroom, painted a beautiful coral color, has a king size bed, flat screen tv, ceiling fan and an adjacent updated bathroom with beautiful custom tile work with a view of the ocean from the shower! The second bedroom, painted in a peaceful coastal pink, has a queen bed and a day bed, with a trundle. The condo has an unobstructed view of the ocean from the living/dining room area, master bedroom and bath over the mangroves! You can also view the view the marina as well from the private balcony!

Kawama Yacht Club features two South Seas Style beach areas within a 2 minute stroll from the unit. These have thatched palm Tiki Huts with tables and seating ~ perfect for Barbecue's. Relax in the heated in-ground pool, just steps from the elevator door, and is for the exclusive use of Tower residents and guests!

Spend time at the large palm fringed saltwater swimming lagoon which is approximately 1000 feet long and incorporates swimming platforms and a sand beach for the children. This lake is stocked with colorful tropical fish such as Parrot Fish, Sargent Majors, small Tarpon and Barracuda to feed and snorkel with. For divers, this is also a perfect place to check new gear before heading out to the ocean. At times, when the winds have brought sea weed to the beach, the lagoon is a perfect spot. As a body of water that changes with the tides, the freshly circulated.

Enjoy a tennis match on one of two floodlit hard tennis courts. Experience sensational sunsets from our 400’ esplanade which also offers one of many fishing opportunities from the point. The Molasses Reef Marina caters to individuals wishing to bring their own watercraft, with complimentary boat launch facilities for renters and slip rentals.

Take a leisurely stroll around the resort by way of several walkways that are lit at night. Many early morning walkers and joggers explore the interior paths and roadways of the island, and many walk around the paths adjacent to the Key Largo Community Park which is beautifully landscaped with various tropical foliage.

Amenities that are offered at the resort are: Security gate, Sandy beach and swimming lake, large heated swimming pool, Marina and boat ramp, Boat Storage, Lighted tennis courts, Gazebo, Adjacent wildlife sanctuary, Playground, Walking path around lake, Dockage available for a fee, Fishing jetty.

Our condo unit has its own cable and (free) wifi service which provides superior service (some units only have the resort wifi service, which is very slow). We also have a washer and dryer, exclusive to our unit. The laundry room is conveniently located just outside the front door of the unit (so the noise does not disturb you during your stay).

There is space to keep your boat on a trailer, however during some peak holidays (Memorial Day, July 4th and Lobster Mini Season) it can get crowded and trailer space becomes very limited.

Wonderful accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful accommodations. The compound must have been a spectacular before the storm. Renovations under way to bring it back to its beautiful place.

Very good with exceptions, Kawama towers

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the property and Meredith was a joy and very prompt on any of my questions. The only downside to the property was the outdoor living space. The pictures did not describe that properly and since that is such a big deal for me I would not have rented that particular location. Personally I like having my meals on the balcony with my family and since you can only fit 2 people it did not work for us. The property is nicely appointed and very clean. Again I can not say enough good things about Meredith. I would be interested in finding out what else she has to offer.

The only other negative was the pool for the towers was not operational and I did not know that before I rented. They did have other pools you could use but they were busy

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great 4 star review and your thoughtful comments! Pools are definitely busy during spring vacations (especially when the weather has been so gorgeous) and we are anxious for our pool to be repaired after the hurricane, too! I think our picture of the balcony adequately shows the space with the high top table and two chairs. Would have loved to hear more about what you did during your stay in the area...we appreciate you taking the time to review and glad you had a wonderful time!

Even with Irma's damage to the grounds around our building, we loved the condo, location, and view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Kawama Towers on Key Largo. The condo was very clean thanks to Marie; we enjoyed meeting our property manager Meredith, and her tips on restaurants and visiting Key West. Check-in was easy. And the condo was updated and comfortable. Nice sized kitchen and well-equipped. Especially loved the desk, and jewelry tree in master bedroom! We were able to walk out to the jetty to see beautiful sunsets; walk to the Backyard Cafe and Fish Market as well as the Pilot House for tasty seafood meals. We visited Islamorada, Marathon, and Key West, and found great restaurants on each key. We'd recommend this condo to others.

Lovely Condo with an Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo in Key Largo with an amazing view! Meredith, the Property Manager, was very friendly to work with and always answered texts and emails promptly. The condo was spotless and nicely decorated. The on-site Marina is not open and the pool in front of the condo is closed, due to the Hurricane. However, there are 2 other pools nearby and plenty of other things to do in the beautiful Florida Keys! Great place to stay for 2 couples.

A perfect place for our week away with 2 kids and my mom too!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo, with little attentions to details that made it a real gem! The place was incredibly clean and the manager Meredith is amazing! (I had numerous questions while there and she is so responsive!) The kitchen was perfect for me, as I love to cook, and with fresh fish to purchase just a half mile up the road at the fishery it was wonderful! The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and so very cute! We could see the sunrise from the deck and just walk 5 minutes to the pier to see dolphins and the sunset. The property itself is still in the recovery mode from hurricane, but two pools were open and the lagoon beach was great for kids. We have a 3 and 8 year old so a bit dissapointed the playground was closed, but there was a cute sand park up the road (which Meredith told me about ).

Key Largo is a great place to visit too and we are already trying to figure out when we can get back and stay here again!
