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. 

 

MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY FOR DESIRED DATES, Especially in Season, for Holidays & Special Events. 

 

Initial Payment required in 2-3 days of confirmation.  Payment plan for advance rentals.   All payments due prior to arrival. Last minute rentals require immediate payment via OVERNIGHT MAIL, PAYPAL or Zelle.  Payment fees are your responsibility.

 

ARRIVAL: 4pm     DEPARTURE: 11am

Early Arrival-Late Departure NOT Available on back to back rentals and must be requested in advance.  Additional Fee for more than 1 hour total extension.  Inquire.

Carol's Condo is comfortable, clean and filled with lots of little necessities.
Helpful votes: 1/0 The grounds are well kept and the lagoon and its fish are spectacular. The location couldn't be better for Key Largo and Carol was such a pleasure to work with. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this condo to friends and family. Carol's condo is adequately spacious, well kept, and generously stocked for a vacation away from home. There are several restuarants within walking distance as well as a fantastic dophin training place! Thanks for everything Carol!

Carol's condo was absolutely beautiful, clean, and spacious.
One could find plenty to entertain themselves just on the grounds alone. Carol has anticipated so many needs from extra linens to toys for the kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again.

Great way to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
Very comfortable and homey. It was so nice just to get away and relax. Key Largo is a great place to visit.

The condo itself is very spacious and well furnished. There are many extras that add a nice touch. The grounds are beautiful and the jetty allowed an unobstructed view of a full moon over the ocean. Unforgettable. Thanks Carol

Carol's Condo makes a perfect "home-away-from-home".
It is comfortable, clean and filled with lots of little necessities. The grounds are charming and picturesque. Our children really enjoyed the playground and looking for fish, salamanders, and crabs in the lagoon. The location couldn't be better and Carol was such a pleasure to work with. We all had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this condo. Thanks for everything Carol!

Carol's condo is extremely spacious, well kept, and generously stocked
for adults and children to enjoy their vacation. It was awesome not to have to haul so much "STUFF" with us. We were vacationing with another family in another condo unit and the Yacht Club was perfect for our family from ages 2 to 78! A fabulous vacation was had by all. The children loved the beach, sandy playground, and lagoon. The group of condos is extremely quiet, well kept and peaceful for a great get away. It is conveniently located to alot of activities when you do want to go out and enjoy water sports, restaurants, and other attractions in the area. Susan Tesch

Carol's condo at Kawama is conveniently located
near many great restaurants and outside entertainment. It is tucked away for quiet relaxation. The condo spaciously accommodated our guest size of 8. It's neat, clean and very reasonably priced. The private lagoon is beautiful and the playground is very nice as well. Kawama has a lot of nice, unique plants throughout the property. The online pictures are true to what they appear. We really had a great time!

The condo was spotlessly clean which was very nice.
Carol made every effort to be accommodating to guests needs even to having extra pillows, etc. It was very nice to have condiments and spices already stocked. We always have to buy and dispose of so many extras that it felt great to leave things for the next renters and we felt fine using what was there. Its a "family" place.

Carol, Thanks for sharin...
Carol, Thanks for sharing your lovely condo with us. The pool and playground on the grounds were enjoyed by us and our children. Plus the beach adjacent to the tower at the marina was great for sunning during the day and relaxing at sunset. Your CD collection was enjoyed while relaxing on the patio.We enjoyed our stay and when we visit Key Largo again, we would definitely like to stay at your place again. Warmest regards, Kate and Dan Budnik

Sep 18, 2002 Kawama was an unexpected delight during our recent stay on Key Largo. The grounds invite us to wander and enjoy the many bayside scenic vistas and park-like facilities. The location was unforgettable, tucked away in a discrete corner of Key Largo which most visitors never know exists. A special treat was the architecture of the tower itself. The inner courtyard, surrounded by the convenient parking areas, is a dramatic, airy refuge from the sudden storms that sweep through the Keys. It was obviously inspired by some of the best of modern Miami. Carol Stuhmer has designed an ideal hideaway for the discriminating sport diver and adventurer, her unit is superb!
