Gorgeous house, quiet neighborhood, paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place! I am a very light sleeper and was looking for a nice place in a quiet neighborhood. This place exceeded all expectations. The house is so beautiful and modern with some cute Californian and Hawaiian touches. It's on a quiet street, no traffic, but less than 30 min from South Beach (factoring in the usual Rt 95 traffic) The back yard is so beautiful with a huge pool, plenty of open space for sunbathing and surrounded by gorgeous trees and vegetation and best of all, totally private and secluded from neighbors. The back covered patio is so gorgeous and relaxing as is the smaller front porch. There are lots of small colored lights around the property and pool that give the house a magic glow at night, kids will love it. The owners Kathrine and Serge were very gracious and accommodating. I can't wait to come back here on my next trip.

Great Hippie Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Christmas and had plenty of room and great access to friends and family all over Miami. If you want to see old Miami, and love tropical vegetation, this house is a great choice. Comfortable and fun -- and whacky. We will come again.

Fabulous place - both in itself, and as a place to enjoy South Florida

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The house itself is beautiful aesthetically, comfortable, well-appointed, fun for kids and adults, and in a really interesting part of the greater Miami area. It is close to beautiful state parks & beaches, art galleries, etc. It is spacious and fun to be in and and at. The owners are very warm and helpful. Highly recommended.

Tropical Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The location and property was gorgeous and very comfortable. We had all the essentials we needed and shopped nearby for any necessities we needed. The owner was very sweet but did unusually appear at the house a couple of times during our stay which was a bit odd. We enjoyed our stay overall and would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you your review. We are glad you enjoyed the house and your vacation. We apologize that we had to come into the house while you were there, it is very unusual that we do this but we had an emergency and had to pick up a few things. We appreciate your visit and hope to have you stay with us again.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour familial plein de bons souvenirs dans cette maison confortable et spacieuse. Les enfants ont bien profité de la piscine. La maison est très bien équipée. L'environnement et le quartier sont très sécurisés. La maison est située près de tous les grands axes pour rejoindre facilement tous les centres d intérêts. Kathrin a toujours été présente pour répondre à nos questions. Définitivement une bonne adresse.

Yes It is a Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I was nervous planning my 50th birthday vacation from the West coast, and having to pay the owner instead of the normal VRBO site, But that nerves was short lived, I got back my security deposit the day we left. The owners Katherine and Serge were supper nice and accommodating of all my needs, they put my fears to ease. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this lush, green, tropical Oasis in deed. The home is bright, airy clean and just so very relaxing. all you really need is your clothes. I rented a second home 7 miles from here and and it was not even close to the caliber of this home. Sleeps 8 comfortable, the pool is just refreshing. You are truly transported to another world vacationing in this home. It was a fabulous vacation and birthday and staying in this home just made it even better, believe me for the price it was worth it, I cant wait rent it again.

Regarding the payment at the time of your inquiry we were not ready to receive payment via VRBO. We have now taken all the necessary steps for that and accept payment via the website to make everyone's life easier. Hope to have you again as a guest soon.
