INQUIRE: for Availability & Actual Rates (based on # of Guests, Dates and Length of Stay).  If you read the full listing, most of your questions will be answered.  Anything that remains unanswered, please ask.

 

This is a NON-SMOKING CONDO for the comfort of all guests (and Owner).  You may smoke on the balcony, with the door closed.

 

Condo Regulations Restrict any guests’ pets.  Service Dogs of course are permitted (see additional requirements below.)  Under NO circumstances may a cat be brought to my condo (I’m horribly allergic).

 

I've owned and have been renting my condo since 2000 and received rave reviews.  Please inquire for actual rate based on your specific stay.  Rates listed on the website are not always accurate.  They cannot calculate for all the factors which make up the rental rates, including # of people, Dates, Length of Stay, Date of Arrival/Departure, etc.

 

I have opted to list my condo on sites that Do Not Add Fees to my rental rate; restrict direct/verbal contact between renter & owner or require payment through on-line website.  VRBO and its affiliates, others have joined the trend, of adding fees and commissions up to 15% to owner rental rates, payment through online websites in the guise of “safety”.  I have consistently had rave reviews.  Reviews from previous years with VRBO are copied here.

 

FYI: Confirm Ownership of a particular property.  Look up the property address up in Monroe County Property Tax records.  My name is associated with my property.  I also have local references from a local business owner and realtor, available on request.  It’s an extra step that can provide you with peace of mind if your unsure.  Additionally, you can look me up:  I’m a Licensed Massage Therapist in Private Practice Specializing in CranioSacral Therapy in Miami.

We loved it!
I can not say enough good things about Carol and the condo she so graciously allowed us to check into with short notice. The attention to detail from the decorations to the comfort of the King Bed (memory foam was amazing!) was beyond our expectations and we feel very fortunate to have found this unit. My husband is quite the cook so we were beyond pleased to find a fully stocked kitchen with pans, utensils and appliances. Additionally, there were plenty of towels for everyone and the beach towels were also fabulous. You will want for nothing if you stay here. Carol even provides a wagon in the unit in case you need to transport things from your car or to the onsite beach. The grounds are very lush and we did some fishing off of the jetty located on the property which also was great. My kids loved the lagoon, complete with live fish, and we were even entertained one morning by some resident iguanas. The pool tower was awesome - we didn't want to ever leave. If we ever go back to Key Largo, this is the place I would stay! Owner's Response: So pleased that worked out for you and that you enjoyed your stay at Kawama and in my Condo. You're family will always be welcome back. Thanks again.

Terrific stay- has everything you need and MUCH MORE!!!!!
We will definitely be returning to Carol's condo in Key Largo!! From the minute we walked in the door we loved the condo, the owner is fabulous she went out of her way to make our stay unforgettable. The beach decor is really lovely. The condo was spotless, very well stocked with linens, the beds were so comfortable, the kitchen...ah, let's just say it's magnificent...it's got everything just like you are at home, the lay out of the unit is wonderful. My family wanted to fish- no problem fishing pole, cooler, red wagon, etc, all in the utility closet... Not sure what you want to see or do? No problem she has a mini guide on the lovely granite counter , need internet access? Yes the condo has internet access and every room has a TV....The community itself is terrific wonderful sunrises and sunsets can be enjoyed sitting in the gazebo by the jetty. The lagoon and pool were relaxing too. We raved about how wonderful our trip was friends have already asked for information about this condo unit in hopes of planning another trip. Can't wait until we can return and you can bet we will want to stay right here!!' Owner's Response: Thank you, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and you are welcome back any time.

Thoughtful Details - At Home Feel - Amazing Hospitality!
You will LOVE this amazing condo! It’s a perfect expression of Key’s condo in a great location, marina, grocery, private pools, gated property, and spacious layout. Then it goes to another level thanks to a remarkable owner, Carol. WOW!! We had the privilege of staying here for a week in June, from the moment we walked in we had an unmistakable “at home” feeling. Carol has done a fantastic job decorating with an island feel and look. It’s tasteful, updated, fresh, fun. Local colors and art make you know you are in the islands, right down to the teak furniture. Then Carol takes it over the top by covering every..single..detail...right down to the cheese grater! Who thinks of stocking their rental condo with a cheese grater?? CAROL does!! I made a key lime pie and wanted lime zest and didn’t think twice that this condo would have one, I looked in in two cabinets and sure enough, there it was! From the fully stocked kitchen, even chef knives, the shampoo hanging on the wall in the shower, the stocked essential spices, paper products, condiments, washer and dryer, beach and pool toys, two sets of keys when the family is in two places, the incredibly comfortable memory foam beds, every details is covered. We discovered Island Dolphin Care, amazing facility committed to care of special needs children through interaction with dolphins. Our special needs daughter Abby had a magical day with the dolphins and experienced the transforming integration of therapy with dolphins. Carol’s condo is located 2 blocks away! It’s the perfect location and perfect setting for an extended stay while working with Island Dolphin Care. We are hoping to come back and stay for a month! Carol’s hospitality was obvious from our first interaction when I had a challenge with PayPal, she worked with me to resolve the issue and get us in on schedule. Her commitment to hospitality continued to the very end when she allowed us to extend our stay to participate in the dolphin program with our daughter. At every step of the way she was available to make our stay comfortable, convenient, and “right at home". Every time we walked into this condo we breathed a sigh of relief as if we were walking into our own home. It’s a testimony to Carol’s commitment to serve the needs of her guests that you can feel “at home” in her condo. It’s a mark of someone with the gift of hospitality to feel that spirit of “welcome home” even when the owner is not present! We will be back to our Key Largo home ASAP!

Our stay at Kawama Towers was amazing.
To start, Carols condo was very clean, decorated nicely and the kitchen was very well stocked with appliances to make all your meals. The pool and grounds were very nice and there is great fishing from the pier(my wife caught a record size mangro snapper and her first shark) If you do decide to go out for meals be sure to take a look at Carol's recommendations. We tried a few and they were all great.

Great place!!!
The condo and property were great. There was not much of a beach when we were there but the lagoon made up for it we loved swimming in it. The condo was lovely perfect for our family, well stocked Owner's Response: For now there is beach access, by nature of the keys and the coral reef system....waters near the shore are shallow. There is a portion of the beach are which is fenced (but there are seats on both sides of the fence and I have additional chairs in the condo laundry room). The beaches of the keys are typically packed sand, there is a coral rock barrier which protects the beach (or it wouldn't be there for long). My favorite is the lagoon....great for swimming long laps or just hanging out. The floats are convenient to get up on to soak up some sun. Did you find this review helpful?

Great Stay!
This is a great condo! Despite the construction, which is almost finished for this condo (though not for other areas of the building), the condo is very nice and convenient in Key Largo. Well-equipped, and Carol is super to work with. Much better than a hotel, and we would recommend it highly! Would stay there next time! Owner's Response: So pleased that my condo met your needs, especially since when you originally reserved the condo I had no idea the construction was going to take so long. I do appreciate your understanding and I hope you'll be back next year and take advantage of the discount I offered you in addition to the additional deduction this year for the inconvenience. The baths are both being worked on this week and next, walls are being finished this week and window sills were installed today. By next year should be even better than it was before the work. Again thank you for being so understanding. Look forward to your family's return.

Perfect setting for relaxing vacation!!!
Carol's condo is the perfect setting for a relaxing Key Largo vacation. The spacious unit has absolutely everything you need and more. All of the amenities of home!! The condo tower is centrally located and within easy walking distance of two pools, salt water lagoon, fishing jetty and marina. My family and I were blown away by all of the nature we experienced in the Keys. Carol is an absolute joy to work with! I would definitely stay here again! Owner's Response: Thank you, I'm always pleased to know that the extras I've provided are appreciated. The occasional suggestion is helpful so I can pick up what guests tell me would be helpful in the future. Especially helpful is when a guest lets me know in advance that something needs replacement or repair, before I get to check the condo...this way I'm ready with whatever is needed...and if I am down during your stay I'm able to provide it for your use. Thanks again, and come back any time for another great Keys vacation! Did you find this review helpful?

Very Nice. Carol makes it ez. Quick accurate bookings.
The photos are all spot on. Anyone with kids you can feel secure here. The lagoon was larger then expected. Read the other reviews I don't want repeat what other said. I cant disagree with any of them. The place is nice is an understatement. Things that I would think would help some one choose this area. You cant get lost. One main road north to south thru the keys lots of turning lanes for ez access to shops. There is groceries close by. A publix is just a few miles north and a winn Dixie north and south aprox 5-8 miles,. There is a kmart beside publix ( aprox 2 miles north if that). For basic snorkel gear go there avoid the dive shops etc unless you want higher quality gear. kmart also has fishing licenses. There is a FRESH seafood within 1 mile. For those wishing to charter a fishing boat the marina just .5 mile from the resort is very limited for private charters but there is a head boat there reasonably priced. Head south to Whale Harbor or Bud n Marys ( aprox 15-18 mile) Huge selections of private charters. There are lots of shops and things to see or do near the resort. Don't want to cook in the fully stocked kitchen . No problem tons of food places. For those beach goers that love to lay in the sand that tapers gradually in to the ocean FORGET it. This is the keys. I have been to 4 keys and yet to discover the beaches that Fort Lauderdale or Miami have. There is sandy areas to layout.

Very comfortable and well stocked!
This was an ideal family condo with a nice pool and lagoon.  The beds were comfortable. The owners supplies plenty of linens, towels, pillows and blankets.  We would recommend this unit.

We were just at Kawama Tower and had a wonderful time.
We had our three boys with us. We explored the keys, took scuba lessons, snorkelled in the salt water lagoon, and the ocean, ate everything in sight, held baby gators... It was a great week, action packed and we also spent some quiet moments lazing by the pool. The condo was immaculate, very pretty and well stocked with lots of little items. (very rare, usually the cupboards are BARE in a rental) The grounds were well maintained, and people everywhere were friendly and helpful. I felt comfortable letting the kids "roam" within the community with the gated entrance and the keyed entry to Tower and Pool. It was occasionally a pain to juggle towel, sunscreen, cold drink etc into pool, but a worthwhile security feature in my opinion. We read Carol's restaurant recommendations and visited many of her favourites, all with good results.. We especially enjoyed Hobo's, Key Largo Conch House (do brunch, great array of Eggs Benedict -with lobster, avocodo, crab cakes-yum!, Braza Lena (don't eat all day before you go!) and Jimmy Johnson's (watch the sun go down with a beverage, listen to the guitar player) Also enjoyed visit to Key West and tour of Hemingway's home.

This was such a beautiful condo.
Helpful votes: 2/0 We really enjoyed coming 'home' to it every night while we were there. The guard at the entrance made us feel very safe. The kids could ride bikes around without us being nervous, if they'd wanted to. Lots of colorful fish in the marina and off of the shore. Truly paradise. Loved the wagon. It came in very handy! The beds were the best. SO comfy. Thanks so much!

Helpful votes: 2/0 We stayed for a 5 day retreat here in the beginning of August. The condo is clean and has all the conveniences of home, just bring groceries and you are all set. The size of the condo is large and roomy which was my main concern. We have 2 young babies and had plenty of space. The highchair, crib, and playpen provided were in great condition and made the trip easier on us. The beds are super comfortable, grounds are quiet. Nice playground for kids and lagoon was fun. Great restaurants in the area, esp Snooks--good food and gorgeous sunset views and kid friendly. Will definately use this condo again in the future. Owner is available for questions and very helpful in assuring your stay is pleasant. Recommended for: Families with Young Children. My Response Thank you Heather. You and your family are always welcome back....Pleased you liked those comfortable beds and that the condo met your vacation needs.

Perfect!
Helpful votes: 1/0 Just like the previous reviews this condo was very clean and had everything you could need.  My 6year old son had a good time at the pool and the salt water lagoon Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Tourists without a Car, Adventure Seekers, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers. My Response Thank you. You and your family are welcome back any time. I'm always pleased to know that guests have found the condo meets not only their expectations, but also their needs.

What can I say? This was the first time I had ever vacationed, condo style.
Helpful votes: 2/0 With three teenage girls, it is the only way to go. Carol's place is impeccable; she has every amenity and then some- from beach chairs and umbrellas to miscellaneous toiletries. My younger one said it best when my pierced ear became infected: "Check in the pantry, Carol has everything!" And there sat a bottle of peroxide! The complex is perfectly nestled in a quite area of Largo between Miami and Islamorada- we took day trips to both as well as to Key West. My husband and two girls went deep sea fishing out of Largo and caught four dolphin fish-Lazy Days in Islamorada cooked them up for us! We rented jet skis out of largo and went fishing off the jetty right on the complex. Kids are going to college in sept- this is most likely our last family vacation. It was simply perfect! Thank you Carol for providing such detailed, accurate information about your place and for sharing your piece of paradise ! Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers. My Response Thanks - what an observant young lady. I do my best to keep things well stocked. I can't take all the praise, as much of the small extras have been left by someone else. Since I hate to see waste, I keep items that my be useful. Pleased to see that it helped you out! Come again for a visit any time.

I can't say enough about how well Carol sets her place up.
Helpful votes: 1/0 Just about anything you'd want. My 5-year-old loved the tennis courts and the pool. If you have kids that young, there's a pretty quiet beach that's great for that age that's free on weekdays about ten minutes away in Tavernier, plus Pennekamp is just to the north. Even though you're set back a bit from Route 1, you're certainly not far from civilization - groceries, CVS/Walgreens, all kinds of restaurants in under ten minutes. We had perfect weather, but even if we didn't, we were in a great place. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Age 55+. My Response Thanks, happy to know you enjoyed your stay....Come back again!

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect home base.
Helpful votes: 1/0 Just getting home from a week at Carol's condo, and I just wanted to drop a note.. Other than a few groceries, we needed nothing. If you didn't bring it, chances are likely that it's already supplied. Everyone we met, from the grounds keeper and security guards to the residents and other vacationer's were super friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend Carol's condo, and hope to visit Key Largo again.

I’d like to take a moment to give some feedback on our stay at Carol’s condo. However, as I look through the numerous 5-star responses, I truly wonder what I can add?
Helpful votes: 2/0 When we travel, I spend a lot of time seeking out excellent locations to ensure we have a family experience to be cherished. My family was very pleased with this selection and I can confirm that all the positives comments reported by the other travelers are true and our experience was the same. Nice condo, nice location, nice owner, excellent experience. The condominium is very nice, is very well cared for, has plentiful cookware, glasses, silverware… and even condiments that are rarely or scarcely available in any other condo or multi-room hotel with kitchenettes. (We’ve heard similar claims of being well stocked from other condos and hotels – but even the best experience elsewhere was greatly improved upon here.) It is conveniently located on one of the nicest areas in Key Largo. It was a wonderful experience. When making the reservation, which was for a last minute rental, I felt a little apprehensive when I learned that Carol does not use charge cards for her billing and required full payment and deposit. (I don’t blame her because charge companies take a commission and are not always the friendliest to the individual business owner.) My apprehension was a waste of energy. Be assured that working with Carol will be more than just a good business experience. She over-delivered on my best expectations and my deposit was promptly returned. Working with Carol is how business relationships should be. Carol has a wonderful property in which her pride in ownership is clear. She takes good care of it and strives to make your visit resonate with her pride in the keys. Enjoy.

Great Getaway Spot * Wonderful Amenities * Comfortable
Helpful votes: 1/0 Thank you for providing such an excellent vacation experience while creating a space that feels like home. My large format photograph of the Florida Bay(http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-photo-14774512-everglades-water-canoe-on-horizon.php?st=d5473d4) adds an extra bit of local character. So much care and attention was put into this condo that made the stay there exceptional! Hope to get back down there again soon. Recommended for: People with Disabilities, Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers. My Response Thanks again Lorraine for the wonderful photo...it came out better than I imagined printed on canvas....I can't wait to get other photos from your portfolio...I hope everyone appreciates your talent. This "Florida Bay" print resonates with me and is a great focal point at the condo....not to be-little your talent by any means, but what an improvement over the stock photos which came with the condo.....To return and future guests...look for new photos they'll be coming....when Lorraine has time.

Fantastic Family Spring Break. We had a blast!!
Helpful votes: 1/0 My husband & I stayed here with our three boys ages 7, 12, & 15.  Carol was very helpful with a list of places to visit & see. My favorite was Calypsos Restaurant. We dove with Conch Republic in Islamorada. The condo was perfect! It was very clean, well maintained, & spacious. My favorite was having a full size washer & dryer. We came home with clean clothes. Normally I dread coming home because of the mountain of laundry. None after this vacation! We played in the pool, snorkeled in the cove, & played tennis every evening. The condo is very close to everything-- grocery, restaurants, diving, & Kmart. Carol was very helpful in leaving a list of places to visit. I recommend this rental for anyone! Carol has gone above & beyond for her clients! The listing was very accurate. We will be back! Thank you Carol for sharing your well equipped home & keeping it reasonably priced!

The apartment was well equipped - in fact it had everything imaginable.
Helpful votes: 2/0 We stayed her for 10 nights in April 2011. The beds were were huge and so comfortable. The rooms were very spacious and easily to get around with my son in his wheelchair. Carol is so accommodating and will do anything she can to help. We would definitely stay here again when we go back to the Keys for my son to have dolphin therapy. The apartment is withing walking distance of Island Dolphin Care. Recommended for: People with Disabilities, Families with Young Children, Families with Teenagers.

The owner, Carol Stuhmer, provided all the pertinent and accurate information necessary for rental of this very, very nice condo.
Helpful votes: 1/0 In general, I find it unusual to receive prompt and factual information from individuals and/or associations whose main goal is simply to rent their properties. In this case, Carol was very forthcoming with the information to make my decision an easy one. The property description, including the posted photos, was "right on" in every respect. From the location of the keys for access to the condo, to the general appearance and cleanliness of the unit everything was "as advertised". We enjoyed our stay very much and HIGHLY recommend Carol and her unit should your travel plans take you to Key Largo. You can expect everything as advertised, and a most enjoyable stay in a very peaceful environment, with never ending adventures of your choosing. I have never had a more enjoyable and serene vacation than we had during this week in late September and early October.......thanks Carol!!

We enjoyed the atmoshpere and feel of the place an look forward to visiting here again.
Helpful votes: 1/0 This was a last minute booking bc our other living arrangements on the mainland were canceled 48hrs before our trip. The owner was very professional, flexible, understanding, and accommodating to our needs. The condo was very clean and charming. We snorkeled at the rock jetti at the property and saw lobsters, rays, blowfish, and urchins. Kawama is 100% enjoyable. We were actually happy to stay here instead of our previous booking. My only complaint is not being able to stay longer! Carol, we will see you again soon. Thank you.

Fully stocked kitchen with EVERYTHING, linens, towels, and super soft beds. Location is great for access to diving, snorkeling , eco-tours in the Glades, a nice day trip to Key West, fishing, or just relaxing. I completely enjoyed my time in Key Largo and Carol's condo at KAWAMA tower!!
