|Minimum Stay||28 nights|
Our Key Largo condo is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, or for a family vacation, at a fraction of the cost of a motel, and with all of the amenities of a home. The condo is located in Kawama Tower, part of Kawama Yacht Club, a secure, gated community with 24-hour access. The newly-renovated Tower is served by two elevators. Kawama Yacht Club boasts a large saltwater lagoon, which is great for swimming, strolls, or beginning snorkeling. We also have access to two heated pools, one of which, the ‘Tower Oasis” pool, is for exclusive use of Kawama Tower residents and guests. The property also has tennis courts. Guests can rent slips at the on-site marina and for those without a boat, fishing (with a FL license) is possible from the jetty at Kawama. A favorite pastime of Kawama residents and guests is walking along the beach to the jetty, where we like to gather together with drinks in our hands and watch the sun go down. It is truly a magnificent sunset!
Our condo has 2 bedrooms (one king, one queen + daybed) and two 2 full bathrooms. We also have a queen sleeper sofa. We have a small private balcony that is great for reading or enjoying your morning coffee. Our kitchen is fully equipped with everything from blenders to popcorn makers, as well as a variety of spices that you are free to use during your stay. We also have a George Foreman electric grill for grilling your fresh-caught fish. We have a wash machine and dryer as well as 3 flat screen TVs, cable, and wi-fi. There are plenty of towels and linens, as well as books, DVDs, and games for you to use during your stay.
One of the many reasons why we love Key Largo is that while it’s easy to spend the day lounging by the pool or lagoon, there are plenty of more adventurous options as well. There are several chartered fishing boat options available within walking distance of Kawama. Pennekamp Coral Reef Park is only a five-minute drive away, and we love to kayak through the mangrove trails or snorkel off the beach there. There are a number of tour boats and rental outlets operating near Kawama, including diving and snorkeling tours, as well as the famed ‘African Queen.’ In terms of wildlife adventures, we are within walking distance of Dolphins Plus, one of several swim-with-the- dolphins centers nearby, only a ten-minute drive from the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, and less than an hour drive from both the Everglades and the Monkey Jungle.
We are also spoiled when it comes to places to eat and drink. Within walking distance are the Pilot House Restaurant and the Key Largo Fisheries, both of which serve good food and drink. The Fisheries also sells a variety of fresh seafood to cook at home. We also particularly enjoy Sharkey’s (three-minute drive) and Ballyhoo’s (five-minute drive). For your everyday needs, Walgreens and CVS are both within walking distance.
We hope you come to love Key Largo as much as we do!

We are a retired couple from Virginia who fell in love with Key Largo. We love nature, art, world travel (our daughter lives in Scotland), and having great restaurants nearby.
Ken Smith-Christmas purchased this condo in 2011
We chose this property because we really like the laid-back atmosphere of Key Largo. We love being far enough from the highway to feel a world away from everything, but close enough to good places to eat and drink.
Out of all the places we've stayed in the Keys, this one is our favorite to enjoy wildlife. Our beautiful lagoon means that on any given day, you can see egrets, ibises, parrotfish, iguanas, and many more. We also like the friendly community spirit of Kawama.
We very much enjoyed our stay in the Keys. We had to contact the owners once during our visit and they were very helpful and resolved our problem quickly. Thank you very much for allowing us to share your home.
This was a great time for everyone involved. Ken was very nice and accommodating. He made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel very welcome. The unit is bright, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. All we had to do is buy food. I would definitely recommend this place.
Stayed at Ken's place for eleven nights, everything was wonderful. Ken left a lot of local information for us as well as some restaurant discount cards. The place was clean and well stocked with household amenities and games. A wonderful vacation!!!
We stayed at this property for 10 days. It was awesome. There were 3 adults and 3 kids in our group. Just enough room for all of us. The property was very clean. Some of the things were a little dated, but over all, very very nice place. While my wife and I were scuba diving, the kids and grandma were either swimming in the pool or the lagoon. The lagoon was awesome. There are hundreds of larger fish and thousands of smaller fish that the kids fed and snorkeled with. The lagoon have very clean water and also had three docks in the water that the kids could swim to and play on. As well as a sand beach on one end. However it is deep, so bring a life jacket for the young swimmers. When booking the owner was very friendly and easy to contact with questions. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. Great place, we will be back!
We had a awesome relaxing vacation. This place is very cute with all the amenities you could want and then some. Very spacious and private. Our overall experience was above expected. We hope to visit again in the future. Bring your cloths and be ready to be spoiled.
My husband, granddaughter and I really enjoyed staying at the Kawama Towers property of Ken Smith-Christmas. He was very prompt in replying to our request to stay and questions that we had of the area. The photos on the Homeaway site are just as the property is and so was the description. The pool was almost private and our granddaughter enjoyed swimming there very much. She also enjoyed the lagoon to try out her new snorkeling equipment and skills. Snorkeling off the jetty on the property was fun too and we saw many small creatures we missed when we snorkeled the reef. We appreciate being able to stay in this vacation home and we also enjoyed the bottle of wine that our host left for us. That was a really nice touch.
We enjoyed snorkeling with Keys Divers and the sunset cruise on the glass bottom boat. We were really lucky as the boat holds 140 people but only 15 were with us that night. That was really awesome- probably will never happen again. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our stay.
