Plantation House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8

A tranquil waterfront home, beautifully decorated with antiques, is the perfect location for your South Florida get-away.

Located in Jacaranda Country Club, this vacation home provides its guests the very best in accommodations. With beautiful views, top rated amenities, and home away from home comfort, this home offers its guests the best on their vacation.

You are greeted by a stunning waterfront view, an open floor-plan and tropical lush landscaping. All rooms face the water except for 2 bedrooms.

One of the best features of this home is its backyard - with pool, gas BBQ and an incredible array of indigenous wildlife including egrets, coots and turtles. There is a swimming pool, a dock with fire pit, and a jonboat with trolling motor. The canal system is extensive and people have even caught bass here.

This peaceful setting is also a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, lunch or dinner.

You can swim in the pool or just lounge outdoors with a good book.

In the evenings, spend time relaxing and watching the spectacular sunsets over the water from the patio or dock, and then start a fire in the pit to roast marshmallows.

This is a vacation rental that is ideal for your holiday rental, golfing trips, vacations, family reunion, etc. This gorgeous home is also perfect for extended stay business trips and relocation related temporary housing.

It is 20 minutes to Las Olas with its 5 star restaurants, 40 minutes to South Beach, 30 minutes to the Hollywood Broadwalk with its kitschy shops and cafes and 70 minutes to the Miccosukee Indian Village known for their airboat rides and alligator encounters.

Just perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We are golfers and the house is perfectly located a few minutes drive from the Jacaranda Golf Club ( 2 18 hole courses). We stayed at the house for 5 weeks. Our daughter and her 2 children joined us for the last week.

I cannot say enough about Carol and Mike - the owners - who went to huge trouble to make sure our stay was perfect. They have to be the most responsive and nicest owners of any VRBO house there is! No request was ignored and no request was too much trouble.

Since we were there so long we had the housekeeper, Anna, come in weekly to clean. She is a delightful person and it was nice to get to know her.

My only suggestion is that there be a listing in the house of all TV channels - the system was hard for us to negotiate and sadly the Golf Channel was not included in the package. We had Sky Go on our iPad but would have loved to watch the Golf Channel.

We would rent this house again in a flash were we ever to come back to the USA.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your valuable feedback. We truly loved having you as our guests. I wish I had known about the Golf Channel! It is in part a golf house (!), so I have updated the satellite package so that the Golf Channel is included. We will also make sure there is a listing of channels from Dish made available so it's not as confusing for future guests. Thanks again!

Perfect house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this great house. We come to golf so four guys fit well and the house is one minute from Jacaranda. Perfect.

Fantastic. I highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with my family for 3 weeks. The property is amazing. Even though the pictures are beautiful they do not do justice to the property. It is much better than anything promised. The house has everything you can imagine. It is beautifully appointed, extremely clean and it has everything you can imagine. I love cooking and the kitchen had absolutely every single accessory you can imagine. I can sit here and sing the praises for this property for hours but you all get the idea. Not to mention that Carol & Mike are absolutely wonderful people who promptly take care of anything you need. Do not miss the opportunity to stay at this place when in Miami. It is close to everything. It deserves not only 5 stars but 7. Thanks Carol & Mike.

Beautiful Home...Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

This home was, by far, the most well-kept, best appointed vacation home that I have had the pleasure of renting. The property owner is extremely responsive and an absolute joy to work with. I rented this home for a business trip (in addition to staying at the house, we actually used it as a set for an educational video my company was taping), and I was pleasantly surprised to find a fully-equipped office space, including printer, monitor, keyboard, and all supplies. The rest of the house was equally well-stocked, and was very comfortable...I felt right at home.

I would highly recommend this house. It is a beautiful waterfront property with all the amenities of home. Most vacation homes I have rented provided minimal supplies, particularly in the kitchen. Here, there was everything I could imagine I might possibly need. (There were even books, magazines, and board games -- none of which I had the opportunity to use, since I was there for business, but a very nice touch.) I only wish I had reason to return to the area with my family for leisure purposes.
