                                    Thank you, Michaela, again for a perfect vacation. We had the time of our lives. For me it was already the third visit at Michaela's cosy, superbly equipped and so nicely decorated house in Boca. My friend, a first-time visitor both to Boca and the US, was just as enthusiastic about the place as I am every time I come back here. The house makes you feel at home right away, the pool area is fantastic and Michaela took so nicely care of us - we just love her. I recommend this home to everyone looking for a vacation home in a perfect neighbourhood, only minutes from the beach, shopping and dining facilities. It offers all you will need during your stay and is so well maintained you can feel that the owner loves the place and wants her guests to do so as well. We will definitely be back as soon as we can :-).

                                    I had the pleasure of spending Thanksgiving week at the house and it was great. Every detail is well thought out and it truly feels like a home. The screened in pool is a wonderful addition and feels like an extension of the house, an outdoor room. Everything is very well stocked from the kitchen to floats for the pool. I would stay here again.

                                    We had only seen pictures of this home online and were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived and were greeted by our wonderful hostess, Michaela. The house is so nicely decorated and furnished with every possible household item you might need for your stay as well as beach chairs, beach umbrellas and beach towels. In addition, Michaela thoughtfully left a bottle of wine, snacks and breakfast items so we did not have to run out to shop as soon as we got there! We have rented other homes in Florida and this was, by far, the best. The Old Floresta development in which it is located is charming and extremely safe. We felt very comfortable taking long walks during the day or at night. The heated pool is just great and we often ate outside in the screened in area. We stayed in this home for two months this year and will be returning for two and one-half months next year. Thank you, Michaela, for providing us with a great time in Boca Raton. Pat & Fred

                                    If you are looking for a perfect, all around hassle free rental then you are at the right place. My family has been staying at this wonderful home (because it DOES feel home right the moment you step into this house) from end of September to mid-December 2012. From the first day of being in contact via email with Michaela the owner, I had a very good feeling about this place. Friendly, patient and accommodating, Michaela proved to be the perfect host even from a distance. I cannot begin to describe how warm and professional Michaela is - accommodating and helping with whatever is in her power. The home is immaculate, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There is absolutely nothing missing. And if you 'would' find something's missing I am sure Michaela would mend this in a heartbeat. Having seen other rentals in the area I can only say that this one is the best. A nice home, practical, easy to maintain, great to entertain and in a beautiful, safe neighbourhood. Since we now moved to Boca I will probably not have the pleasure again to stay at Michaela's place, but I sure will recommend it to everyone who will visit :) Thank you for everything Michaela, our stay couldn't have been any better than this. Chantal & the boys

                                    After having stayed in this beautiful home in June 2011 I was back this year for the Christmas holidays. No need to say that from what I remembered from my last stay, I looked so much forward to return to this beautiful place. But my amazing host Michaela exceeded all expectations and just did a perfect job: After she personally welcomed me at the house, I found everything the way I had it remembered from last time. The house is so well maintained, extremely clean and equipped with all appliances and household items you will need. Also a nice bottle of wine, fresh fruit and breakfast items for my first morning waited for me - which is so nice after a long haul flight from Germany and made me feel at home right away. On top a pool heating has now been installed, which is a definite asset especially in the not so hot winter months. Long walks on the endless beaches, which are only minutes away, and great shopping experiences were only two of my highlights this time. As always I also enjoyed all dinner places recommended by Michaela. She knows where to go! I hope to be back soon. Michaela, the way you care about your guests is just great! Thanks a bunch for everything!

                                    Arrived late at night after a long haul flight to be greeted by our wonderful home,immaculately clean and well presented, in other words perfect, a welcome of tea, coffe, sugar, milk, soft drinks, a packed fruit bowl, and a scrumptious cherry pie, met up with Michaela the following morning and as expected a nice and pleasent host, allways corresponds to all e-mail sent, we have family living in Boca so the location was ideal to meet up with the family, the beach is approximately 3 miles away a nice short distance to jog there and back first thing in the morning due to the heat later on in the day, ideal location for all ammeneties, had a fantastic holiday with our kids and their partners, the house has everything you need from crockery down to beach towels etc, and a beautiful private pool, will be returning to this little paradise one day, perfect, faultless, ideal!!!!!!

Michaela met us at the house and she had it stocked with a big bowl of fruit,and apple pie, juice, milk, coffee, tead, nuts, chips and best of all a large box of Godiva chocolate. How thoughtful! We went sightseeing during the day and was so happy to return to our little bit of paradise and for a great swim in the lovely pool. The area is very upscale. We loved the shopping, beaches and restaurants. Michaela thought of everything to make our stay so pleasant. If we ever return to the area, we would not hesitate to stay at this warm and welcoming home. Rosalie and Brendan

                                    From our first e-mail exchanges with Michaela, an exceptional hostess, we realized that we were going to have a great welcome and a super month's vacation. We had not anticipated the provisions left for us in the fridge and pantry, much appreciated after a 3.000 km road trip from Canada. The home is immaculate,elegant, comfortable and is set in an established neighbourhood filled with beautiful homes, lovely gardens and friendly people.The back garden is very private and protected by a screened lanai around the glistening heated pool. Most evenings we had candleght dinners on the sheltered patio looking out onto the illuminated pool with water features, plants and palm trees. We like to cook and the kitchen was very well equipped with china, utensils and a wide variety of pots, platters and bowls. Magazines, books and artistic flower arrangements and interesting art surrounded us. In the spotless garage, we found beach chairs,sun umbrellas and piles of beach towels plus a variety of laundry and cleaning supplies. There were ample linens, closets, candles and toiletries provided as well as a land phone and WI Fi connection. DVD's, CD's and televisions were available. Michaela's restaurant recommendations were excellent.Lovely beaches, fabulous golf courses and a huge selection of major stores were a short drive away and trips to the Japanese Garden and the Everglades were highlights. Boca Raton is very well laid out, the long white beach is pristine and the fashionable Mizner Park is beautiful. Our challenge was to tear ourselves away from our "oasis". We would certainly highly recommend this home as one of the most enjoyable of the many in which we have stayed in the US and Europe and look forward to a future visit with pleasure;.

                                    This was our second stay at this home in the Old Floresta neighborhood in Boca Raton. The decor is very comfortable. There is nothing that you can think of that you might need or want that she has not provided. When we arrived a bottle of fine wine awaited. Along side, imported candy, fine crackers, coffee, fresh fruit and pastries. In the refrigerator, milk, orange juice and soda. In the bedrooms, plush bathrobes and slippers. Forgot the hair dryer? Look under the bathroom sink. The bathrooms were supplied with lotions and creams and shower gel. Want to go to the beach instead of swimming in the heated pool? Beach chairs and towels are plentiful and were to be found in the garage. Rather have tea? A fine collection of teas are located in the kitchen. WI-Fi (dont worry about forgetting a password; there is none), flat screen TV in the bedrooms and living room and DVD as well as CD's and appropriate equipment to enjoy the nice selection. The house is located very close to world class shopping and many fine restaurants.

                                    Vier Wochen Urlaub in Boca lagen vor uns. Schon die ersten Eindrücke von der Umgebung und Lage des Hauses überzeugten uns. Ein Rundgang durch das Haus bestätigte unsere Vorstellungen, die richtige Wahl getroffen zu haben. Das Haus zeigte sich in einem äußerst gepflegten Zustand und mit viel Liebe zum Detail. Wir konnten im Laufe unseres Aufenhaltes feststellen, dass es an nichts fehlte. Vorallem das außergewöhnliche Engagement der Vermieterin (schon im Vorfeld bevor der Urlaub begann), die sich jederzeit ansprechbar und hilfsbereit zeigte. Für uns steht fest, wir kommen wieder !!!
