Upper Florida Keys Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sofa bed, limit 6 (includes day visitors)

Our 2 bedroom 2 story townhouse is located in the tropical resort of Kawama Yacht Club, Key Largo FL. Located at mile marker 100, an hour's drive from the Miami airport. This secure gated community has (shared) heated swimming pool, tennis courts, playground, fishing jetty, beach on the ocean and deep marina. A salt water lagoon just steps from our door with sandy swimming beach. The lagoon is stocked with an array of tropical fish, a perfect place to snorkel or practice your scuba diving skills. Just steps away is a heated swimming pool. It's an easy trip back to the fridge for a refill on that margarita. You'll find that the townhouse has all the comforts of home, but with a tropical twist. The area is famous for its snorkeling, diving, fishing, and swimming with the dolphins. Key West is just a a short 2 hour drive down scenic US-1.

A great place for kids!: We welcome families! There is no need to pack pool toys or sand toys...we've got 'em! We have a large selection of childrens videos, games, crayons etc. The pool is directly outside of our townhouse, making it easy for Mom and Dad to take the kids to the pool. The Lagoon is also just steps away, and with it's sandy beach and gentle incline, kids can spend hours chasing minnows or building sand castles. There is a floating dock in the center of the lagoon which makes for a great destination. It's not uncommon to see folks learning to dive or practicing their diving skills in the lagoon. The lagoon is an enclosed pond that is fed by the ocean and rises and falls with the tide. The lagoon has been stocked with colorful fish and sea life.

Water your kids-Watch them grow!: Looking for a place to bring your family for a summer vacation? Look no further. Feel confident with your choice at Our Kozy Key. We are close to many activities that your adventurous family may be looking for. You can kayak through the mangroves at Pennekamp State Park, visit an alligator farm in Homestead, Feed the Tarpon at Islamarada, Deep Sea fish, take a diving or snorkel tour, Swim with the Dolphins! The list is endless. Or...perhaps your idea of a summer break is relaxing by the pool, snorkeling in the salt water lagoon, sunning ocean side at the beach, a game of tennis or a BBQ on the deck, we've got you covered. There's no whining in the Keys!!!!

About Stevie (Stephanie) Bovee

We're Greg and Stevie, that's short for Stephanie! We like to joke that we've been married all our lives. It's been a long time :) We have two daughters and three grandchildren and we're happy to have earned the names, Granny and PaPa. We grew up in Michigan and Ohio and as kids we didn't mind the cold snowy winters. We had a great time playing in the snow, ice skating, skiing and sledding. But now days we enjoy spending our winters in the warm tropical breezes of the sunny Florida Keys. Fishing, biking, snorkeling, rollerblading, playing tennis, kayaking and of course enjoying the fresh catch of the day. It's all right here on USA soil and easy to get to by plane or car.

Stevie (Stephanie) Bovee purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Stevie (Stephanie) Bovee chose Upper Florida Keys

We first came to the Florida Keys in celebration of our 30th Anniversary. We traveled all up and down scenic US-1, discovering all kinds of tropical treasures. We knew we would be back soon. We returned the following year with no intentions of doing anything but kicking back and relaxing but we found ourselves investigating the 'what if's'. What if we had our own little piece of paradise? It was on this trip that we discovered 'Our Kozy Key' and without reservation, we made it our own. Perfect!

What makes this townhome unique

One of the reasons we were so taken with our townhouse is it's location. It is situated within a gated community, off the beaten path yet accessible to restaurants, parks and shopping. We have a heated swimming pool just outside of our door and the sandy lagoon is just steps away as well. It's great having the pool so near, especially when the grand kids are visiting and the lagoon offers hours of fun for children and adults as well. Swimming, building sand castles, feeding the fish, snorkeling etc. We are located ocean side and have a beautiful beach just a short distance from our townhouse. There is a fishing jetty extending into the ocean which is not only great for fishing but for catching the sunset as well. The Key Largo area is easy to get to. It's convenient to both the Fort Lauderdale and Miami airports. The activities in the area are boundless and US-1 offers unlimited ocean views and activities all the way to Key West.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014 (TripAdvisor Review)

My husband, son and I recently spent a few days at Kozy Key. It was perfect, exceptionally clean with everything and more we needed within the apartment itself, even down to all those essential items.

The pool and lagoon were literally right outside our door, the lagoon was a real bonus, sitting on the pontoon with the fish nibbling your toes was great!

I would highly recommend this place for families with children, it being really clean and child friendly

Great family spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time... including our 7 month old, 2 year old and their Granny. The townhouse is in great shape and well equipped to handle the little ones with the pack n' play, stroller, and beach toys. The complex was very quiet in early November, so we had the pool and lagoon to ourselves most of the time. It was a great place to relax and unwind.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, four children and I stayed for a week in July. Perfect for families! The pool and lagoon being right outside the door was fantastic. There are 2 community paddleboards that we enjoyed in the lagoon. The pictures shown here are a true representation of the unit. It had everything we needed including beach/water toys as a bonus! Would recommend to others and would definitely stay again.

Great stay at Kozy Key!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 5 nights at Kozy Key with my family for our first trip to the Florida Keys. We had an awesome and amazing experience. The condo is very nice and spacious and very clean. The owners go out of their way to help you with your stay. The pool and the lagoon are just steps from the door. Me and my son had a great time snorkling the lagoon and feeding the fish right out of our hand! We would absolutely stay here again on any trip back to the Keys!

Cozy, clean and close to everything! Great, comfortable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo with responsive and accommodating owners. We had to change dates and the owners were quick to check and see if possible. When scheduling allowed our date change, they quickly revised our travel plans. Their condo was very nice and the surroundings were quiet and peaceful. We were right by the pool and had a nice view from the screened in porch. Thanks for allowing our family to enjoy your condo during our vacation!

Kozy Key Wedding Anniversary May 2016

  • 5 of 5

In a word-awesome. Kozy Key was the perfect place to be for our vacation and wedding anniversary celebration. The unit was very clean, had plenty of room, beds are comfortable, plenty of parking, very quiet as it's located away from any major traffic. It's nice to have the washer and dryer and a bath and a half. Our good friends, who happen to have the same anniversary date, joined us. We have never been to the Keys before and the location of Kozy Key turned out to be very central to so many things. Two good restaurants (Pilot House and at the Fish Market) within walking distance ( best Key Lime Pie is at the Bayside Grill in Key Largo). Even our whole day trip to Key West was not a travel problem. Access to kayaking, snorkeling, etc. is very easy. The grounds at Kawama are very nice and well maintained. We had fun watching the iguana. Owners Stevie and Greg Bovie are so helpful. Highly recommended
