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 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 that I posted in mid-July '15. It will give you a good idea of our beautiful condo and the Kawama Yacht Club property.

Dr. Marianne Elia purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dr. Marianne Elia chose Upper Florida Keys

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

Thank you for permitting us to stay at your lovely condo. We were very comfortable and had a wonderfully relaxed week away from snow and cold. We drove down to Key West and stopped several times along the way. The highlight for us was a day at Everglades Nationhal Park and an airboat ride into the everglades. Thank you! Kim and Pat.

Nice location in the Upper Keys

  • 4 of 5

The location was great, just what we were looking for. Access to the condo worked like a charm. We liked the security of a gated facility with security staff around to watch over everything. We stayed for the mini-lobster week and Kawama was a nice quiet place to stay. We ate at Keys Fisheries just up the road, Key Largo Conch House, Hobos, and Mrs. Mac's Kitchen - all amazing fresh seafood and large portions. We also took out a charter (Blue Heave) and went on a party boat (Captain Micahel (both out of Robbies in Islamorada) and both well worth it. We ate the fresh fish from those trips for several of our meals. Our daughters loved the pool. The condo is just out from the Pennekamp reefs, so if you have a boat or rent one, it's a short trip out.

We loved the view of the boat area and out to the ocean! The lagoon was a nice option for the kids, and no review would be complete without mentioning how much the kids loved the LED shower head!

The furnishings are new...the master bed in the condo had a lot of movement to it when one of us turned over. Maybe it was just us, I didn't notice anyone else commenting about that. Also, the floor in the main living area could really use a good cleaning.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comprehensive review. Our condo is situated in a quiet area on the Atlantic Ocean coast, yet is still close to all the amenities afforded by the downtown heart of Key Largo. Lots of great restaurants, retail outlets and water activities and attractions are nearby. Yes, Molasses Reef is not to be missed by those who enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving. And, there are many options nearby for fishing. John Pennekamp State Park offers a nice beach area, boat cruises, kayaking/canoeing/paddle boating through the mangroves out to the ocean and has an educational area where you can learn about the reefs, marine life etc. Our condo is appointed with high quality, tasteful tropical furnishings and wall art. Our condo provides breathtaking views as it overlooks the Kawama Yacht Club marina, with wide ocean views beyond. The floor to ceiling mirror on the one wall of the living room provides even more ocean views from anywhere in the main living area. The lagoon area is also very popular with children and young adults. It is stocked with many species of tropical fish. You may even see an iguana or two sunbathing in the trees surrounding the lagoon. Geckos are also very common and many children are thrilled to see these. There are 2 in-ground heated pools for the use of Tower guests. The pool that is reserved for Tower guest use is quite upscale and pretty, and is just steps from our condo. Yes, one of our most recent additions is the funky LED shower head in the 2nd bathroom which changes color based on water temperature. Happy travels, Marianne

Great place to stay while having fun in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

We have a family of 5 and the condo was a perfect fit! It was very large and roomy & accurately described in the owner's listing. The beach at low tide was perfect for relaxing & the point at moonlight was breathtaking.

The owner quickly responded to any questions and I would recommend this property to others as a first choice while visiting the Keys.
