Beautiful property, but has mold problem and poor management.

  • 1 of 5

Our stay was a 3 weeks, while working in the Miami area. The house is beautiful, but had a major fault. The pool house room, which can be considered a 3rd of the property had extensive mold damage in the AC ventilation. I was waking up every morning with sinus headaches. One of the mornings we had a lot of rain in the area, I woke up to water leaking onto my pillow and bedding. I had to move the bed and clean the sheets as it was a constant drip. I informed the property manager about this and she indicated that some one would address the problem. This was not done. A couple weeks later it was leaking into the room again. Finally, someone came out and put a tarp on the roof.

When I addressed the issues of mold and the un-livability of the pool room, the owners were completely unresponsive. (no response to emails or text) As you can imagine, this was extremely frustrating. I was too busy with work while in the area, or I would have put the time into finding another place and cutting our stay short.

I would not recommend staying at this property. Luckily, I did not get any serious sickness from the mold, but if a someone prone to illness, child or elderly person were staying here it could have been really bad.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were here to visit my daughter at the "U". This home was close to the school but also close to Coconut Grove and all that area has to offer. The house had plenty of room for our party and the pool was used often. The main living area was great for entertaining when we all got together and the pool table was in constant use. Bea was a great host and responded to our inquiries quickly. I will definitely look to rent this property again next time we visit. Thanks Bea

Our overall impression of the place was fantastical.

  • 4 of 5

It was a gorgeous, busy area with traffic, and quiet at the same time. Fun and spacious would definitely go back. Home needs some minor repairs, however for the most part fabulous home love the character tooo.

Nice house in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay in this "Old Florida" styled house. Lots of room in the living and dining areas! 2 bedrooms in the main house and 1 bedroom in the "pool house"- Nicely appointed bathrooms. Family favorites were the pool table, swimming pool and the Pool House. Only downside were the steep steps down into the living/playroom- difficult for elderly and toddlers.. Otherwise a great house!

Really nice property

  • 4 of 5

We shared this home with family on our vacation. We had 6 adults and 3 children.

Pros:

1. There was plenty of room for all of us and we were all very happy.

2. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious.

3. Central location making it easier to get to any of the attractions we wanted to go visit.

4. There were a couple of issues right after we arrived but they were taken care of very quickly by the owner.

5. There is a park within walking distance if you want to get the kids out of the pool.

6. Doors require a code to get into the house so you don't have to worry about taking a key with you when you leave.

7. The pool had a fence around it.

Cons:

1. Even though it is in a residential neighborhood, the house was on a busy street and we could hear the cars in the back yard while sitting out on the patio.

Not cons but me just being picky:

1. Vacuum did not work very well. Having younger kids with us there were lots of times when we needed to vacuum up spills and the vacuum didn't help very much.

2. Some of the kitchen tools (e.g. knives, skillets) could be replaced.

3. Not all the bathrooms have a tub.

4. Not sure if this was required by the owner or by VRBO but I had to download the app in order to get the "check-in" information. Since this is not an app I would use much, I found it annoying that I had to download it in order to get any information.

Overall, we loved this place and would stay here again.
