Nice stay and perfect for us
We had a very nice stay lately at this unit. I should state right off we are not beach people and we just wanted a place to sit out and relax in the sun. This one fit the bill perfectly. The pictures (accurate) showed a deck and a large backyard and we spent most of our time there. We even ate our meals (even breakfasts) on the deck but not supper as the bugs tended to appear around suppertime. The unit is in very good condition and it appeared to have been painted or recently renovated. The unit was very quiet and we never had trouble sleeping. During daytime while outside, we sometimes heard dogs barking but most of the time we heard birds chirping. I should mention the unit is on 88th street which is a very busy street but the unit is at the very back of the development and is about 1000 ft (300 m) from the road so we never heard traffic noise.
We did make it to Miami Beach twice but the trip took the best part of an hour. While getting ready for the beach, we discovered some beach chairs and beach umbrellas in the unit so we were well set up. I already mentioned the unit is on 88th street which is a busy street but it also has a lot to offer. About 0.6 mi (1 km) from the unit, there is a small shopping center with a Publix, a CVS, a bank, post office, few places to eat, etc. About 4 miles going East, sits the Dadeland mail which is fairly big. In the other direction (West) we have Target, Toys R US, Dick’s, Kohl’s, Pier One and a few others. The unit sits between the 874 and the Florida Turnpike so getting around is not an issue.
During half of our stay, we had my daughter, son-in-law and a 7-month old baby staying with us. We found the unit large enough for us. The living room and the bedrooms are a comfortable size. We knew beforehand there were no oven or dishwasher but that was not an issue with for us. On the other hand there was a BBQ which we used a few times. Yvonne provided a Pack and Play with sheets for the baby and he was happy. Yvonne also provided a few small things promptly when we needed them so we had everything required. The WiFi worked well and we used it a lot. The baby had his first dip in the pool which was quiet while we were there. So we were completely happy with the unit.
