“Great place for a family of 5”
Loved the condo, it was family friendly and very spacious. We had a great view from our deck. The owner was very friendly and very helpful. The facility had a great tennis court and we loved the lagoon. This unit was a great value and the owner makes it affordable for the average family to be able to spend time there.
“Two thumbs up!”
I would recommend this place to everyone. I have been in many condos for vacations and this one had it all -- amenities, cleanliness, location, and security! There were no bugs ever. The scenery is beautiful. Everyone you meet is friendly, and the marina was an additional fun thing to be around. The parking is plentiful and I every day had a new thing to do and see. The owners are friendly and beyond helpful. Will return in a heartbeat!
“Fantastic serene stay Jan 13-18”
My friend and I stayed at the Penabad's condo #503 from January 13-18, 2014. From day one, I have nothing but good things to say. Communication was expedient and clear with Jose getting back to me regarding my inquiry about his condo's vacancy on the day that I emailed him. Got to Key Largo and found the condo to be exactly as described: very clean and nicely decorated. The condo's furniture was in pristine condition with all the amenities/utensils that you might have at home: dishware, flatware, linens, towels, hair blow dryer, etc. Nice cold centralized air conditioning and washer/dryer in the unit is a plus. Nice view off of the living room balcony of the boat dock/marina -- amazing sunrise and sunset view!! The Kawama Yacht Club complex is also beautiful and serene with a lovely lagoon and pools. It is convenient to the main highway in the keys (A1a?) and is close to many restaurants nearby (Pilot House, Mrs. Mac's, Denny's, etc.). Friend and I had a lovely stay here and I have no qualms about reserving this condo again in the future. Jose and his wife Estela were fantastic and were easy to communicate with and reach when there were any questions. I, like another reviewer here, received my damage deposit back via mail 1 day after arriving back home. Without a doubt, I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a peaceful, quiet, clean retreat in Key Largo. Thanks again Jose & Estela! From: Mary Y.
“Great Place for a Family Get-away”
What a wonderful stay we had this past week (December 30, 2012 -January 6, 2013) at Jose and Estella's Condo at Kawama Yacht Club in Key Largo! The condo was so spacious, and extremely clean, which we very much appreciated! Jose and Estella were so very kind and helpful in getting us organized on the front end with all my questions, and then giving us suggestions for what to do when we arrived. I really have to say how very nice these folks are: I truly felt they hoped our stay at their place would be a wonderful experience, and they did all kinds of things to help make that happen. I highly recommend this property as an excellent place for families. We enjoyed the tennis courts, the ocean, the pool, and all the other local activities. So much to do - and then the wonderful home to come back to to unwind and enjoy. Thank you Jose and Estella!
“Lovely condo and nice owners”
What a lovely condo to stay in and such nice owners(Jose & Estella)! Estella met us to show us around and was just so friendly, going out of her way to help us by buying seafood shell crackers. My husband and I stayed in the condo to see the beautiful sunsets every night and then went out to dinner - what perfect evenings! The easy access to so much to do - John Pennecamp State Park, shopping, Harry Harris Park, Snook's Restaurant, Bayside Grill, etc.- makes the condo a great location. Everything was just lovely, the bed, pillows, and couch very comfortable and the kitchen had so many amenities. My husband and I would recommend this place to everyone :)
“Tower #503: Great Experience From Beginning to End!”
This was our second trip to Key Largo and the first family reunion there. Since we were planning a week-long stay, we wanted to be a little more self-contained with all the amenities and so we decided to find a condo. Our search lead us to Kawama and more particularly to Jose and Estela's Tower #503 condo. The reservation process was very easy. Jose was very friendly and he was quick in responding to any and all questions we had. As our vacation week approached, Jose provided us with all the directions we needed to find Kawama, including a hand-drawn map and instructions where to find the keys. Upon arrival at the guard station, we were struck by the beautiful palm trees and the general cleanliness of the area. We were greeted by a friendly security guard who was expecting us and we moved into the beautiful condo. Without going into much detail, the condo was very clean, beautifully decorated and the kitchen and wash room provided everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The view looking over the marina and the sunsets (for 2 days, at least...more on this later)were wonderful. Now, about the weather. We arrived to a storm that dumped constant rain on us for nearly 5 days straight...a total of 15 inches of rain. So our plans to rent a boat and dive/snorkel for the week had to be altered. However, the salt water lagoon at Kawama saved the day. We spent at least 3 days in the lagoon snorkeling (and scuba one day)amongst the creatures including lobster, tarpon, angel fish,parrot fish, grunts and porgies. In fact, swimming in the lagoon allowed us to get all our equipment ready for our last two days which we spent out on the reef! We hated to leave, but even that was pleasant, as Estela came by to send us off with well wishes and check with our deposit. I was really impressed with that! Stay at Kawama and more particularly, stay here at Tower #503. Jose and Estela are wonderful people and they have great neighbors (Ralphie) who are there to help you.
Response from the owner Joel; Glad all our back home safely. We look forward to hosting you at Kawama Again. Next time lets try the Month of May. We usually do not get much rain that month and the water has warmed up for all the snorkeling and scuba diving. Best regards, Jose & Estela
“Come for the Location, Return for the Owners’ Hospitality!”
We chose Kawama Yacht Club (KYC) because of all the features available in the complex but we want to return because in addition to the great location, Jose & Estela, the owners, genuinely care that their guests have a good time during their stay. You can't find a better value for the price either. The unit had everything we needed so we could pack lighter. Because each bedroom had a bathroom attached, it was like having two separate mini-suites for privacy purposes. My mother was able to use her walker in the unit & there were 2 elevators available. Each morning we spent on the balcony with coffee enjoying the view overlooking the marina, ocean and wildlife preserve. It felt like we had the entire complex to ourselves. The complex has nearly every imaginable amenity - ocean, beach, pools, marina, tennis courts, fishing pier, snorkeling in the lagoon, playscape for kids. The shady lagoon was an especially beautiful place to stroll around. Gorgeous, big parrot fish came up to the dock to feed and we even found a tarpon while snorkeling. There are no restaurants or bars on the property but there were plenty within a short driving distance. If you enjoy cooking your own seafood without having to catch it, Key Largo Fisheries is a fresh seafood market three blocks from the entrance to KYC. All the local restaurants get their fish from the fishermen's catches that come in here each morning. Pennekamp State Park, Dolphins Plus, Theatre of the Sea, dive boat operators and other attractions are all within close driving distance. Key West made an excellent day trip. Whether you use KYC as a home base for seeing the rest of The Keys or decide to stay on the property your entire stay, you will be pleased you chose to stay with the Penabads!
Response from the owner Kirsten: Thank you, look forward to seeing you and family again in Key Largo. Jose
We had a wonderful trip. Estella made us very comfortable with colorful stories of her experiences and recommendations. We could have been herded into expensive trips, but enjoyed the grounds so much we barely left. Jose made us feel at home, and we are grateful to both of them for sharing their home with us. Thank you!
The owners are most cordial and responsive. We had a minor problem with the dishwasher. Owner tired to fix it the next morning and put in a new one the same afternoon before we returned from a dive trip! The second best thing is the value, we get a spacious 2-bedroom/2-bath condo with water view for the price of a hotel room.
“Quiet Peaceful Paradise - a true Heaven”
We stayed at Unit 503 in Kawama Tower from 19 april to 2nd May 2011. Jose unfortunately, was on vacation too but had left us in the capable hands of Sabrina who met us at the condo. Communication before the holiday had been excellent and the condo did not fail to exceed expectations. It is spacious, clean, fully equipped and in a truly wonderful location. Quiet and relaxing but close enough to shops and restaurants ,some restaurants in walking distance.Everything you need for a holiday abroad in a home from home was provided. Lots of information at the condo with regards to local attractions and places of beauty and interest. We snorkelled twice and went fishing which was the first time for us. We also visited the Coopertown airboat ride in the Everglades to see hundreds of alligators..Mrs Macs Kitchen was our favourite restaurant with the Pilot House restaurant within easy walking distance We holidayed with our two boys aged 13 and 9 and we all had a fabulous, memorable holiday. We rarely visit the same destination twice but would definately consider it on this occasion. Thank you Jose for sharing your beautiful home with us. Next time we hope to meet you in person!!
Response from the owner We look forward to serve as your host again and hopefully I will be in town to meet all of you. Regards, Jose
