Why Carolyn chose Miami
Our guests love this house because it is a great place for groups or families to enjoy time together. It's clean, comfortable, and well stocked with the basic conveniences. The central location is set in a safe neighborhood, and it's convenient to get around. We've lived here our whole lives, and even though property taxes have skyrocketed in the area, there's no place in Miami we'd rather live.

Great place for a family vacation
Our group of 9 had a great time at this home. The volleyball and basketball courts were a huge hit. The hosts, The Ramsey’s, were super responsive and had taken care to leave us a printed sheet with instructions as we were checking in late. I would definitely stay here again.
Extended family and friends stayed when we were in Miami for a wedding.
We had a great time. Place and yard were perfect for young kids. Lots of space and a nice neighborhood. I highly recommend it.
PERFECT FOR BIG FAMILIES ABD PARTIES!
I work with international students. I'm a local rep with international student exchange in the Pinellas County area. I had a group of students that wanted to see Miami before returning home sdo I rented this home as we were a larger group. 10 students and 2 chaperones.... the bedrooms had plenty of sleeping arrangements. One room was able to sleep up to 4 in other rooms 2 and 3 people. Plus there was a couch in livingroom and there was a 2 couches in sunroom/Florida room which is air conditioned so you could sleep more than 13 in this home easy. The drive to and from Miami beach was normally 25-35 min all interstate driving but it was mostly the beach traffic once you got down into south beach area. There was a lot of nice shopping around the house all well.(Dadeland mall) Target less than 5 min away by car. The community/neighborhood around the house is BEAUTIFUL. We felt very very safe in this home. The basketball goal was a hit with the male students. Big giant back yard with tree fort, swing, volleyball court. Tons to keep kids entertained in the back yard. Kitchen was fully stocked and it saved us a TON being able to cook meals at home. We ate out once on the beach for 2 people it was $95 for just salad and one chicken pasta dish. This house has everything you need from toaster over, washer, dryer, haur blow dryer, to last minute itens we forgot to pack. We were set all weekend.
We had one issue with the master room AC not working but the main house was working perfect. Called the owners and they were over within minutes to see how to fix it and it was just a breaker that needed to be switched. Very fast with helping us. Before we even arrived through email to get some ideas on more activities to do the owners were so helpful. The home is dated but I loved that. It has so much character and charm. There's so much closet spaces as well. Need to store bags your fine. You won't be stepping over anyone or feeling cramped here. The house is huge. The game room/sun room wa s nice and relaxing with foosball, poker table, and they have a cabinet full of board and card games.
I would stay here again with a big party for sure. Truly enjoyed our stay!
Great vacation home!
We loved our stay at this tropical cottage home. Very clean and well maintained house. Carolyn and her husband are great host! The yard is very beautiful, and super fun with many activities for kids and even adults to enjoy. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. I would definitely stay here next time im in town.
The experience we have was excellent with the service and the property,
Carolyn is an great person very helpful, the location of the house is great is close to restaurants, parks tourist places and air port is just about 15 minutes. me and family have a great time. thank you for accommodate us! if we come back to Miami will choose this property again.
We are in a very safe, quiet neighborhood...lush with trees, but still very centrally located. Less than 15 minutes to the airport, 20 minutes to downtown, 5 min to Publix, 5 minutes to big indoor malls, sidewalk shopping, restaurants, and movie theater. Coconut Grove and Coral Gables are 15 minutes away, and about 25-30 minutes to Miami Beach.
