About Silvia

Braulio & Silvia live in Coconut Grove Florida and love to travel and enjoy life to the fullest with their three children. Braulio is a principal at BioTeknica. A consulting firm specializing in engineering, quality, and regulatory projects for the Medical Device, Biologics, and Pharmaceutical industries. Silvia is a stay at home mom who manages their three vacation properties - two in Miami Beach at the Alexander Hotel, and their favorite - Villa 7027 in the Florida Keys.

Silvia purchased this villa in 2010

Why Silvia chose Duck Key

We fell in love with Hawks Cay the minute we stepped foot in the small island of Duck Key. A secluded island, yet central to Miami and Key West, and easy to reach by car, boat or plane. What is not to love about Aquamarine water all around, amazing sunrises and sunsets.

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa in Hawks Cay, is our retreat away from the busy life in Coconut Grove. We get in the car, and in just one and half hours we are in Duck Key. Relaxing in our private jacuzzi or fishing of the dock right behind our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We hope to be reaching out to you soon again!

Thank you!

Not worth the trouble

  • 1 of 5

Misleading write up indicates you can keep boat on property. We weren’t even allowed to drive or park boat on trailer in the Hawks Cay development-and there was plenty of room for boat/trailer parking. Marina on property told us we could use facilities when we called the week ahead of time. When we arrived they treated us like outcasts when we tried to keep our boat there since we rented through VRBO. Very rude!! We had to scramble to find another marina to keep our boat. The ordeal took up the better part of a day of our vacation. When I emailed owner was told to find another marina. Again, I rented this unit based on their description that said we could keep boat on property. Also, was charged a $500 deposit in February. After my stay in July, I was advised they usually don’t collect a deposit. Had to debate with property manager whether I could get my deposit back. Then had to wait several weeks for return of my deposit as owners were out of the country. Wish they told me deposit was optional before keeping my money for five months. Only 4 forks in unit for six people. Made for some creative dining. Unit was nice enough but not worth the multiple hassles.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen, I’m truly sorry that you experienced these issues as that is never intention. Unfortunately after Hurricane Irma the Marina suffered a lot of damage and it remains closed. However, the very first thing on my webpage is this statement: 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom Two Story Villa, Sleeps 6 !!!PLEASE NOTE - The Hawks Cay Marina remains closed as a result of Hurricane Irma. They have opened a few slips but are very careful to rent it to guest who are renting from a private owner. The marina does belong to the Hawks Cay resort and they have the right to refuse service. We have also experienced the same situation and it’s very unfortunate. I will say that you are absolutely correct about the flatware. My property manager never advised me that they had gone missing and the person I left in charge when we went out of the country dropped the ball and did not assist you, and for that I’m very sorry. I have since then replaced it with 3 times the amount needed to avoid this ever happening again. What occurred with the deposit was very strange. I DON’T charge the $500 security deposit. It is simply a hold on the card and it is automatically released once you checkout. However, you did not notice and paid for it. Therefore, it took longer than usual as I had to write you a check and I was in Europe. That is not the norm. Again I’m sorry for your experience while staying in our villa. Sincerely, Silvia

Misleading ad says “with boat dock” but doesn’t tell you that you’re not allowed to dock your boat there. Hawks Cay won’t rent you a slip unless you rented a villa through them. Emailed property owner about this, no response. Had to rent a slip 12 miles away at Marlin Bay Yacht Club and drive back and forth everyday. Well worth it, the place is beauty land the people are awesome! This villa however, not so awesome. Downstairs gets hotter than upstairs, AC is spotty, warm air at times then ice cold, tiny living and kitchen, couch uncomfortable, beds about to fall apart, toilet seats are so small you’d think they were children’s seats, bought a frozen pizza to make, no pizza pan or pizza cutter, can only take hot showers not even warm, hot like 110degree minimum, cannot use tub to take a bath cause there’s a note on the wall that says if you do, water will leak down to the first floor, etc, etc...

Owner's Response: im very surprised and sadden that you did not have a good stay. This is the very first negative review I get on this property. To address your issues: The very first bullet point on my response to guest who inquire about my villa is the dock situation. I explain how you CAN’T dock your boat behind the villa due to regulations. Up until Hurricane Irma you could rent a slip a few feet away from the Hawks Cay Marina. Unfortunately, that was destroyed by the hurricane. I explain that in my email. We do however, have access to the waterways. You could have always parked the boat behind our villa to load and offload. You just can’t kept it overnight. The issue with the toilets it’s a new one. I’ve never heard of toilets being too small. They are actually standard size toilets. The heat during the summer is incredible and therefore, the AC during the day will be warmer than at night once the temperature cools a bit. The AC is not the problem but the Florida hot weather. I always apologize about not have a “pizza cutter”. However, there are plenty of knives. Again, I apologize that you didn’t read the section about the dock on my website or email. The Florida Keys are such a relaxing place, I’m sadden that it sounds like you were not able to relax. Sincerely, Silvia
