Stunning and Perfect--Better Than Hotel Quality

  • 5 of 5
Everything you need and more is available at Villa Viscaya. For years our extended family of 16 has rented large homes throughout the state and this is by far the most fully- and well-equiped property we have encountered. The kitchen had every conceivable accoutrement we could desire, so we could cook and bake to our heart's content. Toys? yes! games galore, croquet, badminton, football, ping pong, pool, poker, cards, darts, keyboards, pianos and a lovely large lawn to tackle and throw and run and play. Private access to a lovely, quiet beach often covered with shells made activities for both children, teens and long walk and talks for the adults. The ensuite bedrooms, many with private sitting areas meant that each member of the family had space--sometimes we lost people when they were quietly sitting on their personal balconies contemplating the stunning views or quietly reading or journaling. I cannot say enough about how wonderfully perfect this house is--including the service. There were ultra comfortable beds in each room, luxury linens with down comforters and pillows, thick cotton towels with more spares than we could use. Back up supplies for everything were provided including wood for the fireplaces. The two sets of washer/dryers kept us all in clean clothes and the two dishwashers kept us in clean dishes! Our family is full of strong opinions--this is the first time that we ALL agreed that every possible need was met and we can hardly wait to return to knit and catch up again. Thank you for making your home available.

OUTSTANDING VILLA EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Villa Viscaya is a special place. My family spent an incredible weekend celebrating my wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary there. From the time you enter the Villa property you are overwelmed with the grounds, the setting, the beautiful interior, the outdoor activities, the sleeping arrangements, the excellent cooking facility, the organization, and the helpfulness of the people who assist in the management of the facility. The property is immaculately clean and well maintained and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a luxurious and relaxing weekend go to Villa Viscaya.

Villa viscaya is the most amazing place! You feel that you have traveled to a far away place when you are only an hour away from home! We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary there and had a marvelous time. There was plenty of room for everyone to stay comfortably. The view and the home itself are sensational. I am looking forward to planning another weekend with family very soon. The owners have out done themselves and are very generous to share this beautiful home with the rest of us! I will reserve the home soon. Thank you very much.

FAMILY REUNION IN STYLE

  • 5 of 5
WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR A FAMILY REUNION. OUR FAMILY HAD A FANTASTIC 3 DAY WEEKEND IN LUXURY. IT IS ONE MONTH LATER AND WE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT HOW MUCH FUN WE HAD. WE HAD ENOUGH BEDS FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT A COUPLE OF TEENAGERS AND THEY SLEPT ON TWO OF THE MANY COMFORTABLE SOFAS. THERE ARE PLENTY OF TABLES AND CHAIRS FOR DINING AND BETWEEN THE KITCHEN AND THE BUTLERS PANTRY THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM TO PREPARE AND SERVE FOOD.

ON SATURDAY SEVERAL OF THE LOCAL FAMILY MEMBERS CAME OVER AND SPENT THE DAY AND THERE WAS STILL ENOUGH ROOM FOR EVERYONE. OUR AGE GROUP RANGED FROM 3 YEARS TO 78 YEARS OF AGE.

YOUNGER CHILDREN HAD A LARGE LAWN AREA TO RUN AROUND ON. SEVERAL FAMILIES WALKED DOWN TO THE BEACH. THE TEENAGERS PLAYED POOL AND PING PONG. SOME OF THE MEN HAD A GREAT GAME OF POKER AT THE POKER TABLE. THERE ARE MANY COMFORTABLE PLACES TO SIT AND VISIT WITH A GLASS OF WINE OR A CUP OF TEA. JUST ABOUT EVERY ROOM IN THE VILLA HAS A VIEW OF THE OCEAN.

WE HAVE STAYED AT THE VILLA A COUPLE OF TIMES AND THE THING THAT IS ALWAYS SO REMARKABLE, THAT AS LARGE AS IT IS, IT IS STILL VERY COZY. THERE ARE A LOT OF AREAS TO SLIP OFF TO AND READ A BOOK OR TAKE A NAP OR VISIT IN FRONT OF ONE OF THE SEVERAL FIREPLACES. WE WERE FORTUNATE TO SEE SOME WHALES AND DOLPHINS FROM THE VILLA.

A STAY AT THE VILLA IS AN UNFORGETABLE EXPERIENCE.

Outstanding Experience in Luxury

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home is located on an incredible ocean front property, and as soon as we arrived we knew we were someplace special. The landscaping was exquisite, and included a magnificent show of hydrangeas in full bloom as well as a tranquil fountain to set the stage for our outstanding experience in luxury. The website for Villa Viscaya has a great slide show; what the pictures don’t show is the incredible attention to detail that makes this home so wonderful. It manages to be both luxurious and cozy. The furniture is not only gorgeous; every seat and bed is extremely comfy. The sheets are very fine quality so you feel pampered even while sleeping. The towels are thick and plentiful, and all the soaps and lotions in the kitchen and bathrooms smell wonderful. The attention to detail does not stop there. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. All we had to bring were groceries. The dishes, glassware and silverware were beautiful and abundant. Every cupboard is clearly labeled so finding things was easy. At one point there were 13 of us in the kitchen and we all had plenty of room. There’s a deluxe gas grill on the veranda that we used several times. In addition to the formal dining room there are multiple dining tables. We had a picnic for 50 people and everyone had a spot. There were times that we all gathered in the same room for socializing and the rooms are so large that it didn’t feel crowded. But there are many places to nestle in for a quiet chat with just a few people, too. If one wants to have a bit of time alone, it is possible to tuck yourself away with a book and cozy fireplace and have a quiet space all to yourself. Downstairs there is a recreation room that is loaded with fun things to do. The pool and poker tables got a lot of use, as did the big screen TV. There are board games and puzzles for all ages. Just outside the recreation room there is a huge lawn and lots of outside games too. The lawn was also a great place for the kids to run around in safety and privacy. Surrounding the lawn are topiaries and a beautiful rose garden, and a really neat table with a gas fire pit in the center. The caretaker of the property was very knowledgeable about the estate. There was such clear documentation on everything it was all easy to navigate. The entire house and grounds are immaculately clean and well maintained. I would give this property my highest recommendation to anyone who is looking for a luxurious, relaxing vacation.

Wonderful place for multiple family gathering

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful weekend getaway for a group of friends and family! The rooms are beautiful and luxurious with awesome views of the ocean and separate wings ensure privacy for mulitple families. The kitchen was huge and great for cooking communal meals. Fun game room on the lower level with pool table and lots of board games. It is a short walk to the private beach but we enjoyed watching the sunset from the patio as well. We didn't want to leave!
