WOW is the word everyone said on seeing this house. As you drive up the road full of anxious expectancy after the wait of many months, you just say WOW the house is imposing, large, attractive and yes -- the photos and all the previous reviews lived up to expectations. Our special family vacation of three generations including three young grandchildren was wonderful.
The house is vast with spaces for everyone to chill. We hadj time doing all the things the house made available to us, a large kitchen, large living areas, pool table and the bedrooms were well laid out with two cribs for the babies.
The fish tanks were a real feature, absorbing and entertaining especially at feeding time.
The pool area was a serious delight as it was especially fenced and safe for the kids, large enough to enjoy a good swim and also enjoy the sun. A family favourite spot was the Tiki Hut for BBQ’s, breakfast, late drinks, and just sitting watching Dolphins, Manatees and the wonderful view of the bay and downtown Miami.
The setting both during the day and night is outstanding overlooking the bay and probably offering the best view of Miami. Just 2 miles from Bal Harbour the beach, shops and a few minutes to walk to excellent local restaurants, it is hard to beat.
All this did not happen by itself. David, the owner, was outstanding just as the previous reports had said – totally discreet but available for any assistance and help with information and certainly very responsive to any problems and requests. After staying in many major hotels throughout the world I can say that David is a gem at customer care. He even arranged at short notice topersonally babysit for our three grandchildren when we all wanted a night out together.
We researched over 30 houses before settling on this home and we were rewarded by a wonderful three weeks of vacation. We look forward to returning next year.
