About Carol Stuhmer
I reside nearby in Miami and am frequently in the Keys for a get away myself! I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1997 with a private practice CranioSacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage & Visceral Manipulation as well as other Modalities through the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens. I also Teach Pilates privately and have taught Yoga and Seniors Exercise. My practice and condo rentals keep me out of trouble! I highly recommend Pilates in Paradise for excellent instruction. Christi is amazing. Although I am not probably will not be available for massage during your stay, I can make a recommendation from my local friends. Inquire if interested. I welcome questions, and will answer as thoroughly as I possibly can. It's a challenge to make a decision on where to stay, especially if you don't know the area. From Key Largo you can take day trips throughout the Florida Keys or visit some areas in Miami-Dade during your stay. So ask away. Be sure to view comments from previous renters - see what made them happy with their choice to stay at my condo.
Carol Stuhmer purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Carol Stuhmer chose Key Largo
I chose the Tower at Kawama for its spacious layout, Oceanside location and easy access from Miami. Kawama Yacht Club hugs the Ocean - set back from Overseas Highway (US1) you do not have the constant buzz from traffic along US1. In Key Largo you're just a short drive to Miami and can enjoy all of the other Keys during your stay. When you're ready to head home....you don't face a long drive through the Keys to Florida City just to begin your journey. Living in Miami, Key Largo is an easy quick get away for myself & friends. My Condo has the Short Term Rental Permit allowing Short term and Weekly Rentals (Monroe County has recently limited short term rentals through enforcement. Not all properties are permitted less than 28 Night rentals).
What makes this Condo unique
Kawama Tower has a pool for Tower residents only. It is located next to the marina. Other renters at Kawama are not permitted, so DO NOT disclose the gate code to anyone! Kawama Yacht Club has a Saltwater Lagoon with a sandy beach at one end and small deck at the other; there are floating decks along the length. The community is on the Ocean with a Beach which leads to the Jetty; Tennis Courts, Marina & Boat Ramp, Slip rentals Available through the Marina Management. I can put you in touch with them after you have confirmed your rental. ALL Boats brought on to the property require $300,000 Liability Insurance) Even though Kawama is an ocean side, from the jetty you can enjoy the colorful light show as the sun begins to set. Many enjoy casting a fishing line off the jetty - however if you want dinner, I suggest the deep sea fishing charters - anything you can't eat while you're here, you are welcome to leave in the freezer for me, it won't go to waste ;-) ! The Jetty is actually State Park Land; access is limited to Kawama Yacht Club. This was a helicopter landing pad during WWII. Now it's a lovely place to congregate, watch the sunset, meditate or, my personal favorite, early morning Yoga. A frequent comment is how well furnished & stocked my condo is, especially by people who are used to sparsely furnished rentals & timeshares. I make every effort to provide as much as possible for your comfort and convenience during your stay. Occasionally things are removed/broken by previous guests. Let me know if there's something you expected & didn't find, so at least I'll know it needs to be replaced. The new Kitchen has additional cabinet space with plenty of room for your food. If there's something you'd like to suggest - I welcome your suggestions. I also appreciate knowing if something is not as it should be so I can remind the cleaner...mistakes happen. Key Largo is perfect for peaceful stay & convenient for day trips to explore all of the Keys.

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!
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.
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!!'
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
