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!Sharmon S.

Terrific stay- has everything you need
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!!'Karen M.

Thoughtful Details - At Home Feel
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!Ted B.

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.Ron

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!Diver girl

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!Kendra B.

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.Don

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. The only minor drawback is the view. We would recommend this unit.Kathleen G.

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.Sunseeker

This was such a beautiful condo. 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!Anonymous

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.Anonymous

Carol's place is impeccable; she has every amenity
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 !Anonymous

Great Home Base
I can't say enough about how well Carol sets her place up. 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.Marc

Just getting home from a week at Carol's condo, and I just wanted to drop a note. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect home base. 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.Anonymous

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? 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.TLW

Excellent location and apartment
We stayed her for 10 nights in April 2011. The apartment was well equipped - in fact it had everything imaginable. 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.Maureen kew

Fantastic Family Spring Break
My husband & I stayed here with our three boys ages 7, 12, & 15. We had a blast!! 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!Kristi M.

Very enjoyable week at Condo
The owner, Carol Stulman, provided all the pertinent and accurate information necessary for rental of this very, very nice condo. 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!!Arnie

Best Owner in the Keys
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 enjoyed the atmoshpere and feel of the place an look forward to visiting here again. 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.Anonymous

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

Kawama was an unexpected
Kawama was an unexpected delight during our recent stay on Key Largo. The grounds invites 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!Tim Birthisel
