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 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.

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.

Owner's Response: Great to hear you really enjoyed your stay at our condo. Thank you. Indeed it is spacious at approx. 1350 s.f. all on one level and can sleep up to 7 persons comfortably. It is well appointed with upscale furniture, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and all the essentials for your vacation. Lots of things to see and do at Kawama and in the area.

Beautiful, spacious condo with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this condo while we were in Key Largo. This was a beautiful, spacious condo. It had a well equipt kitchen, two large bedrooms with more bed space than we needed and two nice bathrooms. The condo was clean and well kept. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning while we enjoyed our coffee. The property for this condo had a lot of things to do. It had a small beach area, a lovely pool and a nice lagoon. We took advantage of all three. This quiet location was close to everything we wanted to do while in Key Largo--snorkeling, parasailing, kyaking, paddleboarding and boating were all easily accessible. In addition, the condo provided brochures with accurate reviews for nearby restaurants. Overall this was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, and we're so glad that your family enjoyed your stay at our spacious and well-kept condo. Indeed, we have a lovely, well stocked kitchen and we've decorated our condo to a high standard, in appropriate tropical theme for our guests' enjoyment. Yes, our condo is close to attractions, restaurants, stores etc., yet tucked away on the Atlantic Ocean coast so there is no noise, and it is very peaceful. The view from the balcony is quite breath-taking! Dolphins Plus is just next door if you have dreamed of swimming with dolfins or a sea lion. It's a remarkable experience. There are 2 in-ground pools, the beach area and the Lagoon should you wish to frolick in the water. Lots of great restaurants close by and lots of things to do both at Kawama and around it. Happy travels, Marianne

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Yes, our condo is spacious, with about 1350 s.f. all on one level in an open concept design which maximizes views of the Yacht Club Marina and Atlantic Ocean beyond. Indeed there are many great restaurants nearby, as well as many stores that can provide all the amenities of home. Also, there many things to see and do very close to our condo, as it's well situated in the heart of Key Largo, but well tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main commercial area. Happy travels, Marianne

Very nice place great view, furnishings, wifi, loc

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place that has been mostly updated. All of the furnishings are in great condition. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc... The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and in good shape.

The AT&T wifi worked great. Mostly non HD channels on tv, but who really needs to watch tv in Key Largo?

Very good location as well since it is on the water and close to John Pennekamp state park. If you like snorkeling or scuba diving (they also have glass bottom reef tours), visit this park!

This unit has a partial view of the marina and ocean beyond. It was great sitting on the balcony each morning having coffee and watching the boats come and go.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed hosting you. Yes our condo is spacious at 1350 s.f., open concept all on one level. We've upgraded the condo structurally and have appointed it with tropical themed, tasteful, top end furniture. The well equipped kitchen and separate private laundry rooms are a bonus. We indeed are well located on the Atlantic Coast, about 1 mile from Hwy. #! which hosts many shops that provide all the amenities of home (grocery/drug/restaurants/fast food etc.) Thanks for staying with us we hope to host you again in the near future. Best regards, Marianne

Great trip and enjoyed our stay at this unit. Everyone was friendly and very nice pool area. The unit was equipped with everything we needed and more. We didn't have to worry about a thing once we arrived. Thank you for a delightful stay!

Owner's Response: Great to hear you really enjoyed your stay at our condo! Yes the new Oasis Pool is beautiful, and just adjacent to the ocean and yacht club. Most of the time it is very quiet and relaxing. We do strive to stock our condo with all the amenities of home and those you may need while on vacation. We have decorated our condo in very tasteful high-end tropical furnishings and decor and pride ourselves in providing such a beautiful and spacious 2 bedroom + 2 bathroom condo all on one level, in open concept design. The bonuses are the private laundry room and the spacious, well equipped kitchen that has ocean views. Lots to see and do in Key Largo and the Keys. Our condo is oceanfront, ocean side, nestled between John Pennekamp State Park to the north and a bird sanctuary to the south. So it's very quiet yet close to great shopping... good grocery and drug stores, clothing stores, great restaurants and fast food outlets, Super K-Mart etc. Happy travelling, Marianne

Winter Vaction in the Sun

  • 4 of 5

Spent two weeks at the condo. The condo was clean. Marianne was great to work with during the whole process. She emailed all the information about the area & complex after the rent was paid in full. This was very helpful in planing our trip. Was disappointed with the very narrow beach front. There is another beach area that is connect to the man made lagoon that was a nice beach. If every in the Key Largo area I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your post. Yes the condo is spacious, clean and well appointed. It is well stocked with all the amenities of home and is well located on the Atlantic Ocean coast. Yet it is about 1 mile to the "downtown" of Key Largo where you can find many shops - grocery/drug stores, Super-K-Mart (like a Walmart), restaurants of all levels (5 star to fast food). I do strive to make the booking process as simple as possible, and to respond to any subsequent inquires in a timely manner. I appreciate this feedback. Happy travels, Marianne
