We absolutely loved our stay at R1 and plan on returning as soon as possible. The lagoon was great, our favorite place to hang out with the whole family. The owners are such great people always just a call or email away when we had questions. The actually how was amazing as well, equipt with everything we needed and more. Overall we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation!
We had a great time on our family vacation. The unit was clean and as described. The entire yacht club was perfect for our extended family as we rented four separate units and we could easily spend time together or apart as desired.
I highly recommend staying at this beautiful resort. I will say that this unit (R1) is probably the best location in the entire place. It was an end unit , located close to the pool and beautiful lagoon. I read quite a few reviews on this property and I can probably see why some people had issues. This specific unit however is privately owned and when we arrived I had a couple of questions so I emailed the owner at 2 am. She not only called me the next morning promptly but she also drove from Miami to meet us. With her she brought all kinds of new supplies, sheets, comforters for the beds, none of which were even a concern. She was very accommodating and wanted everything to be perfect.
The unit is tastefully decorated and well equipped. If I had one concern it would be that the bottom level was a tad musty. The grounds were well maintained, the pool was clean and the lagoon was clear and fun to explore. the entertainment of the large lizards, basking in the sun and scurrying around was great. There is a nice beach as well. We will be back !!
We have been coming to R1 for 5 years. We love the Kawama community and easy access to all the best in the keys. Our unit is spacious with 2 1/2 bedrooms with 3 small bathrooms with showers. It is great for 4 adults and 2 children. If there are any problems Bill and JoAnne will take care of it immediately. We plan on returning next year!!!
We have been coming to the Keys since early 90’s and are frequent renters. We have stayed multiple times at: Moon Bay, Ocean Pointe, Seagulls, Summer Seas, Hotels and a private home. This unit claims to be 3 bedroom, it is not. It has 3 separate sleeping spaces however the room with the bunk beds does not have ingress/egress (a window or door to an exterior wall ) so according to all nationally recognized building codes it is a 2 bedroom. Unit was dirty, several lamps or lights had burned out bulbs. Unit may have been recently remodeled however only the upstairs bedroom would be termed really nice and sorry that is a shower in upstairs bath, not a tub as advertised.
On the plus side, a couple of potential safety problems were dealt with quickly and efficiently by owner. It is a convenient location and screened in porches are great. Lagoon, golf cart, new grill and pool were all nice. Furniture on living level was very nice as well.
The reviews seem to be so varied and it may work for some however we have had better experiences at other locations.
