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

Our contact information is on FaceBook page. Visit Our Kozy Key for phone and email information.

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 Key Largo

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 Families, Relaxing, and FUN!

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect! This townhouse sits right next to the beautiful lagoon and one of two pools. Kawama is a lovely community with a gorgeous beach and two pools! Everything inside and out of the home is well maintained. The owners were very attentive and friendly. There are several great restaurants nearby, Mrs. Mac's had the best key lime pie! We really enjoyed just relaxing, cooking fish from the fishery down the street, and playing board games! The kitchen has everything you need. Our family will return to Our Kozy Key! Definitely 5 stars! Only downside is that you cannot use the kayak shown in the picture. It's not insured. No big deal as there are rentals available nearby.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and a BIG thank you to your family for volunteering to help in the cleanup recovery efforts after a nasty visit from Hurricane Irma. Your efforts along US-1 are greatly appreciated by us and the other lovers of the Keys.

Excellent family stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an all around great stay even through the tough time from the Irma impact. I am sure the lagoon would have been great had Mother Nature cooperated. Only things we had issues with was lack of lighting at the pool between 5-8 pm and maybe a slight bit on the cool side also. Still great on the hot days however !!!

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We went 10/23 to 10/27. First the owners are very responsive to any questions top notch. The place is very well kept. The complex has been hit some by IRMA with some flooding but not this condo. It’s in great shape. They have a nice pool that was open right outside the unit which was great.

Great location in the upper keys and really great place to watch sunrise

Would stay here again no doubt

Love the keys. #conchstrong

Ideal location in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

Site was perfect location for all of our activities in the Keys. After a long day snorkeling, kayaking, beaching, touring, etc., the family was always glad to get back to Our Kozy Key where they could relax in the pool, lagoon or inside. We were penny-pinching by preparing most meals, and the kitchen was well suited for all of our needs. Only complaint I heard from the family was that pool rules are no swimming after dusk, which didn't leave us much time to use it after a day of vacationing. If we find our way back to the Keys, this will be where we stay again.
