Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a perfect time. Everything was perfect during our stay, even during the day when 12 inches of rain fell in 7 hours! The layout is perfect for a weekend with friends and also allows for privacy. Thanks, again! Back to the ice for us.

Férias no Santuário

  • 5 of 5

Minha familia e eu, desfrutamos de cinco maravilhosos dias nesta casa. O clima em Miami estava ótimo, convidativo a um dia de praia ou desfrute à piscina. A casa é relamente muito boa. Foi recém reformada e é bem espaçosa. Seu interior estava limpo e organizado. Já a parte extrerna, em função do grande jardim, precisou de recolhimento de folhas das arvores, que estavam na piscina e em seu entorno. As orientações da Jeniffer quanto ao alarme e segurança da casa são bastante efetivas. Aliás, a Jeniffer é muito simpatica e atenciosa. Apesar da casa estar situada em uma área mais antiga, North Miami Beach, tem fácil acesso à regiões mais movimentadas, como Aventura. Recomendo a hospedagem bem como certamente voltarei a procurá-la.

Excellent host and perfect home!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my group of 8 came to celebrate my bachelor's party. Jennifer was excellent host. She was very thorough with all her emails about the house amd what was expected. She has a checklist to complete to get your deposit back. The house is comfy and you feel right at home. The location is nice and you have everything you need within a few miles. Jennifer was very nice and help me with anything i needed. We cleaned up fter our selves and got the deposit back in full. I will absolutely come back and recommend this house for anyone planning to stay in Miami for a vacation. Thank you homeaway for a smooth transaction and Jennifer for being a great host.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing The Sanctuary House. Your group was wonderful and we look forward to seeing you in the future. Wishing you the best of everything for your upcoming wedding!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the house. Inside the rooms everything seems to be new. It was very clean and equipped with all things you will need.

Also it was very nice to be in the garden. We enjoyed to swim in the pool, to sit next to it on the couches for eating and relaxing. Another positiv piont was the communication between the landlord and us. We get all important information a long time before our holidays started. When we arrived, we found a folder with a lot of information about freetime activities, how to use every home appliances and some other helpfull tips for our stay.

All in all we enjoyed our stay.

Perfect house in a silent save neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

A great house with a lot of space. We had a great time with our family in Miami. When we arrive the house was very clean. We specially want to give a big compliment to the manager Jennifer Dertouzos. If you have any questions of problems she solves it directly.

We recommend this house to everybody who wants to have a nice stay in Miami to visit Miami Beach, The Everglades, Malls etc.

A true sanctuary vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My colleagues and I came to Miami for an international conference at the Adrienne Arsht Center and wanted a place we could relax and turn it into a vacation as well. We found the Sanctuary home on homeaway and decided to stay here.

Once we arrived, the Property Manager, Jennifer, was there to greet us and made us feel very welcome and gave us a quick run through of the house. She was also able to accommodate many requests that we had. The house was absolutely clean, with comfortable beds, and plenty of towels. The house was a mile drive to grocery stores and restaurants.

Our favorite spot in the house was enjoying coffee and breakfast on the tiki and a perfect place to watch the sunrise. Overall, we had a great time and highly recommend staying at the Sanctuary home! Wish we could have stayed longer. Through our photos, friends were already asking us about how they could rent the same house as well.

Car: recommended

SUNNY ISLES - GOLDEN BEACH 6 Miles /15 min - Located in North Miami Beach, this two miles of public beach has few amenities, but it seems only locals know about this little utopia. William Lane's exuberant, Deco-styled pavilion at 163rd St. harks back to Sunny Isles Beach's 1950s futurism, even if the kitschy motels are now disappearing under the giant footprints of the high rises. Don't despair though, you will find plenty of souvenir shops (loaded with flamingo T-shirts and snow globes) and hotels reminiscent of the resort Florida people from all over the world have come to know and love.Parking can be hard to find though there are metered lots near the Ramada Inn just north of the William Lehman Causeway. Just be sure to keep those meters fed because—let's just say the meter maids do their job very well. Be sure and check out the pier where you can gaze over the ocean and perhaps see a sea turtle or dolphins playing below. You can fish from the pier and there is also a snack bar offered on site.

AVENTURA MALL - 3.35 Miles / 7 min - Major Stores: Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Nordström, Apple, Abercrombie & Fitch, Armani Exchange, Hollister, GAP etc. AMC Movie Theater.

SAWGRASS MILLS OUTLET MALL - 23.1 Miles / 19 min - Major Stores: Bloomingdales, Armani Exchange, Juicy Couture, Michael Kors,Prada, Neiman Marcus

BAL HARBOUR MALL (very exclusive) - 9.2 Miles /18 min Major Stores: Louis Vitton, Georgio Armani, Diane von Fürstenberg, Gucci, Hermes, Fendi, Escada etc.

HOLLYWOOD BEACH BOARDWALK - 9.39 Miles / 15 min - features a one-of-a-kind oceanfront promenade, that stretches nearly two and a half miles along the Atlantic. Named one of America's Best Beach Boardwalks by Travel + Leisure magazine, this brick-paved thoroughfare is a haven for joggers, bicyclists, roller-bladers and all who'd prefer to take in the action from the comfort of one of the countless eateries and cafés along the way. Here the beach is wide and water gets deeper slowly, which makes it safer for children.


Ginza Japanese Buffet - (All you can eat) 4.5 Miles / 10 min -Biggest & freshest Sushi/Sashimi BuffetHot dishes buffet, Grillgood quality, reasonably priced.

Gamaroff’s Bar & GrillSimply - 5.7 Miles / 12 min. - Delicious features like: Burgers, Baby Back Ribs, Ahi Tuna, Pacific Salmon, Rotisserie or Southern Fried Chicken or Fresh Salads. Try their Prime Rib! Quality good - reasonably priced. Best price for Prime Rib in town!!!

Trattoria Rosalia (inside Aventura Mall) - 3.35 Miles / 7 min Casual Italian Restaurant - Good Quality - medium priced

Bella Luna (inside Aventura Mall) - 3.35 Miles / 7 min - More upscale than Trattoria Rosalia (same owner) - Good Quality - high priced.

Cheesecake Factory (inside Aventura Mall) - 3.35 Miles / 7 min Family style Restaurant, which means portions are big and you can share.Good Quality - medium priced. We recommend their hugh selection of salads.

You find a lot of good restaurants in South Beach. They are generally high priced.

South Beach Restaurants - 17.51 Miles / 27 min

Juvia - Rooftop Restaurant on Lincoln Road. Good Food - spectacular view day & night. High priced but worth it. Good Hangout for drinks!

DiLido Restaurant (Inside Ritz Carlton Hotel) - Only true beach side restaurant. High priced but wonderful place to have lunch or coffee. Enjoy the ocean view and watch the people on the beach. Closed in the evening.
