Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott .... we want to thank all your hospitality and kindness, our family enjoyed a very good holiday

Your house is wonderful, very comfortable, spacious and totally enjoyable, plus your work and your concern for cleanliness and order are a very important extra value as well as the water sport items.

The scenery is beautiful, with sunlight all the day, the house is very spacious, ideal for sharing a family friendly vacation, given the layout of the rooms coexistence is completely independent, yet united in the common areas, frankly, much better than a hotel.

We had a great time, Thanks Ricardo

Not a “Lifesaver” but definitely a “Vacationsaver"

  • 5 of 5

Fifteen Omega men from the Iota Phi Chapter arrived in South Beach Miami excited about renting a mansion from Friday until Monday; however, the house we rented was not ready (I’m intentionally sparing details). As you can imagine, the anxiety level was high and everyone wanted to know where we were staying so we can switch our attention to having a great time.

After staying at a hotel on Friday night, we were scrambling to find another house that sleeps 15. As our hope was fading and almost booking hotel rooms for the remaining nights, Natalie Cohen called and stated that she had a place that we would love. She connected us to Scott and within 2 hours we were checking into a fantastic, wonderful, Bay house in Miami Shores that was 10 times better than the mansion we rented in South Beach (and less costly).

Scott, the owner, is a great host that goes out of his way to make everyone feel welcome. During the first day, two things stood out: (1) Scott spotted a Manatee that swam right up to the dock – what a rare sight (we all ran over to get a close up view); and (2) Scott found out that some of our guys loved to fish so he brought down 3 fishing rods. Knowing where we were sleeping allowed us to focus our time on fellowshipping with the Bruhs and enjoying Miami.

Scott continued to find ways to make sure we enjoyed our stay without hovering over us. One example was him offering to take some of us to a party on his boat. [I have used VRBO and HomeAway before but never did I have a host to go above-and-beyond like Scott did during the weekend.] Many of us discussed whether we should rent the home during family vacations.

Scott & Natalie – thank you for saving our vacation and making the trip an enjoyable and memorable time.

Scott, want to thank you again for hospitality and use of your vacation home. As you know we travel nationwide to work on high end commertial accounts. Hotels can become a drag, so having to stay at Villa La-Vue was a very nice change that the whole crew appreciated.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robert! I really appreciate the positive comment and having been choosen by Paragon for you and your crews accomodations during your Bal Harbour Shops build out. Looking forward for your next trip down. It's always great having another large corporate client acknowledge the bennifit of a Vacation Rental over a hotel for sure. Scott

Perfect for a family reunion gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families staying in this home and it was perfect. The kids (and the adults) enjoyed the pool table as well as the spacious area for handing out both indoors and outdoors. We especially appreciated using the kayaks to explore the bay- such a cool, beautiful adventure. The home is cozy, clean and has all the amenities one needs for a comfortable stay. Scott is a helpful, friendly manager who was readily available when we had questions. This home is also in an incredible location. I jogged to the beach every day and even found an outdoor workout park a few blocks away on the island. There are parks for the kids as well. The evening sunsets over the bay were stunning from the outdoor lounge chairs. I would highly recommend this home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review Lori and you decision to book our Villa! Thank you also for mentioning not only some of the great amenities of our property but what a wonderfully family oriented area the property is in. It's difficult to cover all the great qualities the property has to offer in the listing alone and your review hit the spot! You and your family were wonderful guests and we sincerely hope you will be back soon. Thank you again. Scott

Great Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

11 of us stayed at this Villa with plenty of room to sleep. We had a great time, the house was stocked with everything we needed. We really appreciated all the cooking and grilling stuff and it was even enough for a few more people. We also had a great time with the kayaks, paddle boards and noodles to swim in the bay. The beach and grocery store were only 10 minutes away and the location is great. Scott was always available when we needed him. I definitely recommend this place to any large group and would definitely stay here again! Thanks Scott!

Owner's Response: Tom thank you so much for the nice review. I would also like to add that considering you are college students that were on your spring break, your group really surprised me just how well behaved and respectful of the property you were which I really appreciated and you gave me reason to consider other spring breakers for next year. Thank you very much! Scott/ Owner Villa la Vue - Miami

Great Property for Multi-Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent multi-family vacation to Miami for my mother's 60th birthday. Villa La Vue was the perfect place for our trip. We had 10 people including 3 small children and we all had very comfortable accommodations. We loved being able to fix our meals and eat at the house, we grilled outside while enjoying the incredible Bay view. It was great to be able to use the kayaks right off the back yard into the bay. We walked to the beach and to the shops. It was a perfect mix of quiet, comfortable home but close enough to walk to almost anything you need. There was also plenty of parking and an easy drive to many other Miami attractions. Overall, great place to stay for a large group.
