This beautiful 3,000+ square foot Florida home features lots of room, four full bedrooms and four full baths, in a quiet and wonderfully convenient neighborhood. The common rooms are filled with light through enormous hurricane-proof windows, with beautiful Saltillo tile floors. The original art and antiques throughout the house range from wonderful to whimsical. The four bedrooms feature fine bedding, and collectively sleep eight in quiet comfort. The pool is large and lovely, while the pool table in the game room is a championship nine-foot Olhausen, newly re-covered and perfectly installed.
Gather around the outdoor fireplace of an evening or lounge by the pool, or in the shade of the fruit trees on the back lawn (avocado, mango, lychee and mamey, so pick your season!) or on the covered patio as you watch the sunset over the water.
The house is less than a mile from the University of Miami, a few blocks from the south side of Coral Gables and less than ten minute’s drive from the Miracle Mile, Coconut Grove, the Village of Merrick Park and some of the best dining and shopping that Miami has to offer. Twenty minutes’ drive takes you to Miami International Airport, Vizcaya, Key Biscayne, and Brickell Key, and five minutes more across the causeway takes you to the beach.

The home is beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen is perfect for cooking large meals. Will book this property again and again :)
Very nice property. Pool was wonderful and so were the bedrooms. Everyone had their own bedroom and privacy. We especially enjoyed the patio, and the iguanas, and parrots in the neighborhood. The owners were very helpful with places to eat, what to see, etc. If I'm ever back in the Miami area I would stay here again.
This is a lovely home and the pictures shown are completely accurate. We rented this home for out of town relatives coming in for my Father's memorial service. The home was large, comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen for handling a large group of family members. I definitely would recommend this home and would also stay there again.
This was our first VRBO experience, and we were very satisfied from start to finish. The house was beautifully decorated and very welcoming. We had miscellaneous family from three states gathering to celebrate a med-school graduation. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms made that combination of families and age groups work smoothly. After graduation, several additional families and friends joined us for a casual lunch. There were lots of places inside the house to spread out. For those who wanted to be outside, there were several places by the pool and under the trees to sit, socialize, ...and gawk at the huge iguanas. This was the perfect place to celebrate a big accomplishment.
To vrbo.....you're being difficult....be specific. What exactly is personal or business in this review.? Other reviews included personal names of owners. My email is on here due to your vrbo form. Delete it if you don't want it included.
We would like to thank Wayne & Gloria for letting us experience their beautiful property for one week. We had a family wedding in Coral Gables and staying at their house was a very nice experience. The house is beautiful and is accurately pictured on the website. Wayne is very thoughtful to include "FYI" on the local restaurants, places to visit, directions on how to use most of the electronics that are provided for our enjoyment and suggestions on places to shop. Their house is equipped with everything necessary to have a wonderful time without needing to go anywhere else if you choose to stay right there. We would without a doubt rebook with them should we need to visit Miami again. The location was very close to Coral Gables, the house was beautifully decorated, and it easily accommodated visiting friends and relatives. It was the best choice for us. Thank you so much! We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Terri & Family
We stayed at this property for a golf getaway weekend in April 2016. It exceeded our expectations! First of all, it is in a great location, close to Coral Gables and tons of nice restaurants. The house itself is quite nice with four bedrooms and four bathrooms--plenty of space!
The outside area is terrific. There is a pool and a nice grill and is the perfect spot to end the day. There is plenty of room to sit down with a cold beer, relax after a round of golf, and watch the sun go down. Very pleasant!
The owners were very responsive and helpful throughout the process. If we are ever back in South Miami, this is where we will stay!
Quiet, historic neighborhood, just a mile from Coral Gables and the University of Miami; great for walking, jogging and biking; tennis in the park a block away. It's a short drive to great restaurants, the Miracle Mile, the Biltmore Hotel, Coconut Grove, Brickel Key, the beaches at Key Biscayne and Matheson Park, and shopping at the village of Merrick Park.
