About John Popovski
Hi I'm John and thank you for visiting our our property site. My wife and I are very pleased to offer our new Miami Beach home as a vacation destination. We purchased the home in the summer of 2010 and took possession in 2011. We looked at many potential Miami homes but fell in love with this property at first sight as we couldn't resist it's charm, beauty, landscape and perfect location. We purchased the home directly from the builder who briefly lived in the house. She put in a lot of personal touches and upgrades such as warm Brazilian Teak flooring, Custom Kitchen, Industrial grade Hurricane Windows, Steel Roof, Heated Salt Water Pool, Brand new Dock, High End Security System and lots more. My wife and I are natives to Toronto, Canada and like our potential guests, we too look forward to enjoying our home as our Miami vacation destination. We plan on visiting Miami frequently but the property is too beautiful to sit idle when we're not there so we decided to offer it to a few lucky guests. The response to our home since we started offering it to others has been overwhelming and we're grateful to be able to let our guests enjoy the home as much as we do. We take great pride in maintaining our home as 'hotel style' with fridges completely cleaned after each use, cupboards emptied, washrooms sanitized and linens fresh and ready for you to move in. We also maintain 2 full time staff members attending to our home so that our guests enjoy maximum comfort and safety. We personally make ourselves available at any time and our managers are also available so that get the best experience possible during your Miami Vacation.
John Popovski purchased this Estate in 2010
Why John Popovski chose Upper East Side
We entertain a lot of friends and family in our daily lives so we chose a home that is as convenient, comfortable and accommodating as possible. We've spent a lot of time picking out just the right furniture, bedding, appliances and amenities. We've also added in so many personal touches to the home such as quality bedding, large, plush colour-coded towels per each room. Warm, generously appointed, themed bedroom sets, imported furniture, high end entertainment system and lots more. We pride on making our home as clean and well equipped as possible so that all you need to do is bring your toothbrush and some sun screen and you're ready to go. We will do everything possible to help with your stay and we will be personally available as well as have local presence during your visit in the event you have questions or concerns. We also love this property because most all of Miami is comprised of man made canals, which when water stands for long periods of time, can attract mosquitoes and other undesirable insects. Because this home is situated on a fresh water fed River, the water always flows outwards towards the ocean all day and night regardless of which way the tide is flowing and therefore there is no standing water, which means the bugs are minimized. In fact, many locals to the Miami area who visit our home are amazed at how we can enjoy the outdoor atmosphere unprotected by screens because there are very few insects as a result of the property's advantageous location. The back of the home also faces south so we get maximum sunshine from sunrise to sunset. This is a very unique feature compared to other homes facing in various directions where you lose the sun early in the day. Most people come to the Sunshine State to get some sun but we've also create plenty of shaded areas when you need a break from the sun. You will find our home perfectly situated in the middle of everything with just a short drive to all of the major attractions.
What makes this Estate unique
We've been told on numerous occasions that our pictures do not do our house justice. The atmosphere you encounter from the moment you enter the front door is indescribable. From the extremely high ceilings, to the ultra comfortable sitting area under the backyard porch to the well equipped gourmet kitchens both indoors and outdoors, you will have all the luxuries you desire within this offering. We also just renovated the backyard in March 2012 to include a covered pergola , outdoor kitchen and bar, seating area around the bar and teak outdoor dining room. We also completely re-designed the landscape for the enjoyment and convenience of our guests. We also have new loungers poolside and comfortable deck chairs along with a small firepit for those rare cool nights. We also have an amazing and comfortable set up along the dock where you can relax and enjoy sunsets. All in all, we've been told you will not want to leave. Even with all the hustle and bustle of South Beach, our home will provide you a the comfort and tranquility you will find irresistible. If you like entertainment, we have a brand new large screen LED TV, with Google integrated Blue Ray and a Bose Stereo System offering high quality surround sound. The ultra High Definition makes you feel like you are on the set with the actors and in fact brings a whole new experience to watching tv or your favourite movies. And, for the ultimate movie star treatment, some of our lucky guests have been fortunate enough to charter our 60 foot Sunseeker Predator, the same boat featured on many James Bond movies. This boat will travel at almost 40MPH on the water and is quiet and smooth enough to have a casual chat while sipping on a glass of wine without spilling your drink. For the nature lovers, the backyard is an actual fresh water river that runs into brackish salt water into the inter-coastal waterway. The river is home to lots of wild life including manatee, dolphins, numerous fish and crab.

Our Christmas House
We have spent the last 5 Christmas in this beautiful house.
It fits the family perfectly. Lots of space, comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms.
The children are in the heated pool from dawn to dusk. Adults can lounge by the pool or sit on the shaded porch.
We have breakfast inside at the large dining table and lunch and dinner outside under a lovely covered loggia by the canal. There are so many places to gather in the sun and the shade.
The owner and the caretaker are wonderful, so helpful and attentive to every need.
We plan to return next year.
Thank you Deb.
As always, it's a pleasure having you and your family join us for the holidays and we will look forward to having you back next year.
All our best wishes for a wonderful 2018.
We stayed at John's property for a long weekend in May to celebrate my bachelorette! We loved the house, fit the group perfectly and the beds were comfortable! We had plenty of bath and pool towels for the group, and the washer dryer was available in case we needed to clean anything.
One issue we had was the grill not working on Saturday night, but the property manager was very accommodating and let us use the neighbors grill for the night.
Overall great experience! Would rent again!
Perfect Bachelorette Weekend!
South Beach Villas made for the perfect bachelorette weekend, even before it started. The owner was incredibly fast with his email responses, he was friendly and always offered answers to any Qs our group had. Upon arrival, the property manager met us at the house, made sure we knew how to use all electronics and appliances in the home. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals (we had 16 and there was plenty of plates and silverware). The house was perfectly clean and bathrooms had extra linens and towels. Bonus, the beds were incredibly comfortable! MUST DO: the boat day. My friends and I agreed that it was the highlight of our trip, we got to swim and enjoy time on floats, we brought lunch and drinks and had the most relaxing day out on the water ending with a cruise tour around Miami. All weekend the owner and property manager we available with any Qs we had, which made us even more comfortable. We would highly recommend South Beach Villas for any large groups looking to have a fun weekend on the water!
John and Randy were very attentive to our needs. Beautiful family. Beautiful property. My family really enjoyed the stay, property and we all really enjoyed the yacht for my 40th birthday celebration. We will definitely book again. Thank you so much John and Randy for your awesome hospitality!
Bachelorette Party April 2018
I stayed here along with 9 other girls for my sisters bachelorette party. We had an AMAZING time. The house is absolutely beautiful. It is the PERFECT house for a bachelorette with a larger group. We were also fortunate enough to go on the yacht. If you stay at the house the yacht is a MUST. Randy, the property, manager is wonderful and was extremely helpful. John, the owner, is fantastic also VERY helpful. I couldn't have picked a better location/ house. All the girls had a wonderful time. We are hoping to get back here sometime this year. I HIGHLY recommend booking this house for any occasion. Thanks again for everything John, YOU ARE A GEM!
Excellent Spring/Easter Vacation with Family
We rented this house for 6 days and it was amazing! We also chartered the boat for one day and had our Easter Dinner catered at the house. John and his staff were great! They were very helpful giving us recommendations on what to do and even recommended a church so that we could attend Easter Mass. The day boat trip was outstanding! John is a great captain and gave us a great tour and took us to a nice location where the kids could lounge on the raft or use the paddle boards. Lunch on the boat was superb! I highly recommend the house and the services offered; they did not disappoint! Pascuale made us a great Easter dinner! Yummy!
The Miami Beach Upper East side is growing and evolving as a trendy tropical neighbourhood. We're 5 minutes away from a Publix for all your grocery needs, 10 minutes from Costco in case you want to indulge in some 'family' sized shopping. 5 Minutes away from Miami Shores Golf and Country club that has a fun and challenging 18 hole course at very reasonable rates and just 7 minutes from the trendy Wynwood Art district of Miami. We're also just minutes away from downtown Miami and the Cruise ship docks.
You will find our home very central to everything. Anything that you'd want to do in Miami is no more than 15 minutes away including the airport ride from MIA. We would certainly recommend renting a car for your stay as it will undoubtedly save you money as opposed to taking a taxi, but if you choose to cab it, you will not spend a fortune getting around. A good local choice is Uber. Just download the app and pick your cab.
As we are on the inter coastal waterway, the premiere attraction here is water and water activities. Ask about the various water sports you can indulge in within the neighbourhood including chartering our 60' Sunseeker Predator or renting a Sea Doo for the day. You can even enjoy some stand up paddle boarding.
The property is located on a live spring fed river and home to lots of aquatic life. See Manatee, dolphins and a variety of fish swimming and jumping from the private dock in the back yard.
If you like sunshine, our backyard faces south so you get plenty of sunshine from sunrise to sunset. After all, Florida is the Sunshine State.
