Key Largo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Ensuite Bathrooms, Sleeps Upto 8 people, 'SPACIOUS' 1350 Sq Ft

Our home is situated in the Kawama Tower at Kawama Yacht Club and is modern and spacious with elegant furnishings. A combination of beautifully maintained gardens, pools and waterside facilities ensure a lovely base for a Family or a Romantic Couples holiday and to explore the unique Florida Keys.

Two of the pools are tiled 'heated' pools including the 'Oasis Pool'. 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 property as a whole enjoys landscaped areas with PalmTrees and themed ‘South Seas’ style Tikki shelters for shade in relaxation areas.

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.

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.

Andrew Exley or Sally Budd purchased this apartment in 1999

* 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.

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.

Great place to stay

We stayed at Sally and Andrew´s place for a week. When we looked for a place to stay, we wanted a place not to far of Key West and Miami, and this place was just great!

There were lots of places to eat out, things to see, and Key West and Miami was not to far away.

The apartment was great, Andrew was too! Everthing regarding the stay were done in a professionel way. Both before the stay and after. The way of paying could have been easier though, but that is not a big problem

We had a great time, all four of us visiting from Norway. If anyone should ask me where to stay in that erea, I have absolutely no problem telling them about Sally and Andrew´s place!

PS: Make shure to have the time to eat at Mrs Mac´s Kitchen...

Beautiful place! Great condo!

My fiancé and I rented Andrew and Sally’s beautiful condo for one week in January and it was one of the best vacations we’ve ever had!
Driving up to the Kawama Yacht Club, the first thing you see is the palm trees and tropical growth. The grounds of Kawama are very nicely manicured. Check in, the lock box /key entry, finding the condo from the main road in Key Largo was all very unproblematic. Being at Kawama Yacht Club feels like you’re away from the world, yet your only a minutes’ drive from events, dive centers, stores, excursions, and restaurants. There’s Ballyhoos restaurant, where we ate the best lobster, key lime pie, and all you can eat stone crab claws in all of Key Largo. We had a wonderful breakfast at the local’s favorite, Docs Dinner. The Conch House, and had a great Conch Chowder, which if you go to the Keys, you have to try! The Pilot House and Calypsos was also nice! They are both on the same road as Kawama Yacht Club and are within walking distance. If you eat at the outdoor bar you get a great view of incoming boats and pelicans in the marina. The Big Chill, is on the water, and the sunset from the outdoor bar is nothing short of stunning! There is also a Kmart and Publix grocery store close by. If you go to the Publix, you have to buy one of their key lime pies, they’re amazing!
The condo was perfect! When you walk in, you’re greeted by beautiful tropical Florida design! The leather couches are clean and in great condition, both bathrooms are very nicely done, the carpets are clean, the balcony is tiled with clean furniture to relax on, and the kitchen is very clean and fully stocked with everything you would need to cook a meal! The new bathroom with the tiled shower is very nice! The other bathroom is good also, as it has a bath tub, perfect for taking cool baths, after a long day in the sun. The TV in the living room is big and has a great picture on it. Over all the condo was updated, clean, and comfortable.
My fiancé and I spent our days lying by the pool, we’d move to the beach and then to the lagoon! I didn’t know a lot of history about Kawama until we arrived and I was greeted by some of the friendly locals at the complex. Apparently the area was host to the navy seals training program back in the day. The lagoon, at the deepest is 65 feet deep and has two ladders that extend down to the bottom. There is a plethora of tropical fish and coral in the lagoon. I strongly suggest going to the local dive shop and purchasing

Kawama Towers is in a quiet location but readily accessible for shops restaurants and places to visit. we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Keys and would recommend it.

My family and I stayed at Andrew and Sally's condo for a week in September. We had a great time! The condo was very clean and comfortable and easily fit the family, with room for more.

Andrew and Sally were very friendly and nice to work with in renting the condo. Andrew even called the day after we got in, to make sure everything was okay.

If you are looking for a condo in Key Largo that is clean, comfortable, and not crowded with tourists, this is the place to go. We will definitely look to go back the next time we go to Key Largo.

Thanks, Andrew and Sally, we had a great time!

The pool was great, the kids (9 & 11) loved it (we also!). Lot ot things to do in the neighborhood, lot of good restaurants and shopping. Thanks Andrew & Salley, it was great!

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.

Other Activities: swimming with dolphins : snorkelling : boating : fine dining : ecotours : casino cruises : sunset sailing crusies
