SOME VERY IMPORTANT FACTORS TO CONSIDER:
Many of the most popular vacation rental websites have been infiltrated by more and more con artist that advertise properties and take payments/reservations for properties that do not exist. Also, many private owners throughout the keys are operating illegal vacation rentals in areas not zoned to allow for rentals of less than 28 days. This is an activity that the county is aggressively cracking down on for a variety of reasons. Owners that are caught by Code Enforcement face steep fines and are required to immediately stop advertising and cancel all of their reservations.
So to insure you have the peace of mind in knowing that you are dealing with a legitimate vacation rental manager and will not become the next victim of internet fraud, finding yourself stranded in the keys without a place to stay or reserve from an owner that is running an illegal rental. It is imperative that you make sure the owner/manager you ultimately rent from is licensed by both Monroe County as well as The State of Florida Division of Hotels and Restaurants.
Pest Control is one of my top priorities since all properties located in this tropical environment are vulnerable to becoming infested with roaches, ants, and spiders. Nothing will ruin a family vacation faster than having to share your unit with these unwelcome guests. That is why all my units are treated and inspected on a regular basis by a Professional Extermination Company.
Some of the best known restaurants, dive shops, and snorkeling/deep sea fishing charters in all of the Keys can be found only minutes away from the resort. If you love adventure, natural beauty, or just relaxing on the beach while sipping a Piña Colada and gazing at a picturesque sunset, our townhouse in Key Largo is the ideal vacation destination for you!
Typical Day At Kawama Yacht Club: Enjoy a relaxing swim off of our private white sandy beach, BBQ with family at one of our ocean front Tiki Huts, fish for tarpon, snapper or grouper off of the 400' jetty, sunbathe at one of our swimming pools, burn off some calories on our tennis courts, take the kids over to our brand new playground or maybe snorkel in our private saltwater lagoon and swim along side the dozens of exotic fish. These are just some of the activities you and your family can enjoy.
100% Guarantee that the unit you see advertised is the actual vacation rental you will get. Since ALL vacation rentals in Key Largo are privately owned they are decorated and maintained based on the owners taste and budget. The range varies from new and modern to outdated and worn down. So don't take a gamble on your vacation and INSIST on seeing photos of the actual rental before you book! Especially if you ever deal with a management company that represents multiple owners but only advertises their best model unit.
Pest Control is one of my top priorities since all the properties located in this tropical environment are vulnerable to becoming infested with roaches, ants, and spiders especially during the Summer months. Nothing will ruin a family vacation faster than having to share your unit with these unwelcome guest. That is why all my properties are treated and inspected on a regular basis by a Professional Extermination Company. The random treatments offered by the homeowner associations were never enough.
These accommodations have been Inspected by an Agent of the State of Florida Division of Hotels & Restaurants and Approved to operate in Key Largo Florida as Vacation Rentals. Whichever individual you decide to to business with, make sure to ask if they have the required "Transient License" issued by the state. This will insure that the unit meets the minimum standards for vacation rentals and is in compliance with the states Health & Safety Requirements.
This is the ONLY way to insure that you are renting a Legal Vacation Rental and Do Not become a victim of internet fraud as many bogus ads are placed on many of the most popular vacation rental sites. Also many owners advertise their properties in areas not zoned to allow for short term rentals, so you risk having those reservations being canceled at anytime as code enforcement is cracking down on that illegal activity.

About the owner: As a Miami resident for over 40 years, I have always enjoyed getting away to Key Largo for the fishing, boating, and relaxation that is unique to the area. Being able to share the Key Largo laid back life style with other families from all over the world has truly been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life. Over the years I have been able to meet so many people and share stories with them. They all seem to have the same things in common, they all love experiencing nature and the outdoors in a way that brings them closer together as a family.
I am married to a very supportive wife Charlene and have two great kids, Sofia and Fernando Jr. They all love the outdoors just as much as dad. I am a Civil Engineer by trade, having worked for 11 years at a firm in Miami primarily in the areas of Land Development and Highway Design. In the mid 90's I began renting out my second home in Key Largo to generate extra income and as the saying goes "The rest is history". I still keep my Engineering License active (worked to hard to get it) and have since obtained my Real-estate License. I'm currently a member of the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce and I'm presently serving as President of the Kawama Yacht Club Board of Directors, Vice President of Townhouses of Kawama, Treasurer for Kawama Tower and Secretary for The Mariners Club Board of Directors.
