Miami-Dade County Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This lovely 3 BR unit is perfect for a couple that doesn’t want to feel crowded into a hotel room, two couples on vacation together, or families. It's only 11 miles from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport, and 20 miles from Miami International Airport. An easy five minute drive to the beach, two minutes to shopping, and a short 20 minutes to Miami Beach's night life. This lovely unit features a full kitchen, large fridge, dishwasher, microwave, full oven, toaster oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, BBQ utensils, and a full size clothes washer and dryer. You can use AC or rev up our three ceiling fans and open the screened windows. It has two updated baths - one has a shower with seat, one has a shower/bathtub. The master BR has a king bed, while the two twin beds in BR #2 can merge into another king. We have a convertible full-size bed in study/BR #3, and we offer use of a folding playpen and high chair for youngsters. There are three large flat screen TVs, a DVD/Blu-ray player, a stereo radio/MP3 player for your I-pod, and wireless internet. The balcony has two comfortable chairs where you can breathe the tropical air, enjoy the treetops and listen to the cicadas as the sun sets. You can take our two beach chairs and umbrella to the white sand beach less than two miles away, or stroll 10-15 minutes to the exclusive Aventura Mall. You can amble through the tranquil, green surroundings of the Yacht Club's grounds, or jog on the pathway alongside the Turnberry Isles Golf Club. After a long day of shopping or beach time, you can soak in the heated pool or the jacuzzi, or unwind on the dock as the boats cruise by. There is an indoor racquetball court and fitness center, two tennis courts, a half basketball court, as well as a business center. One of the best features of the Yacht Club is the barbecue area by the pool, where two large gas grills are available to cook up your burgers or some good steaks or chorizos from the nearby butcher shop. It has a large counter/bar where you can people-watch or meet new friends. The Yacht Club has plenty of parking, a friendly atmosphere, and an attentive management team.

About Ricky Diaz

Our family has lived in or visited the Hollywood/Hallandale area for more than 20 years and has a real affinity for South Florida. We are a bi-cultural family that has traveled and lived around the world and enjoy meeting different and interesting people. We speak Spanish.

Ricky Diaz purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ricky Diaz chose Miami-Dade County

We chose The Yacht Club at Aventura because we have friends living here and we always enjoyed visiting them. The atmosphere is friendly, and the complex has excellent security so we always feel safe. The air is fresh and clean, it's beautiful, and it is very near to a wide range of shopping, good restaurants, entertainment, and nearby Aventura Hospital and Medical Center. We often drive to the promenade and bandshell in Hollywood for sunbathing and a seaside stroll, or cruise up to Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale or down to Miami Beach for the nightlife. Bal Harbor's famous Neiman Marcus and other luxury stores are only 10 minutes away, and we like to spend a night at the horse track at Gulfstream Park, only three miles away.

We were so pleased with the apartment we rented through Ricky Diiaz. The apartment was clean and spacious. If we plan next year to go to Florida for Passover. We definitely want to take the same apartment.The broker was so accommodating.

Great Place, exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently spent a week visiting family in Aventura and this condo provided a perfect home base. Condo was spotless, filled with thoughtful and useful amenities and in a great location. It is spacious and great for families or 2 couples. The pool area is a short walk away and very enjoyable. Ricky and Clara were both responsive and hospitable. We hope to be back and would highly recommend.

Happy to be Back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this unit; it is our third time renting the condo and we were very pleased with the welcome we received. The condo was spotless and the welcoming note and candy from Clara were a nice touch! As usual, all requests and emails to Ricky Diaz, the manager, prior to our arrival, were answered promptly and everything went smoothly as usual. We were pleased to meet Clara who helped us out with a few small issues once we arrived. She responded almost immediately and was very sweet! It was a pleasure to meet her. The condo looks just like the pictures and is very comfortable. Hopefully we will be back next year! Thanks again Ricky! Lezlie

Avoid this condo!!!

  • 1 of 5

We spent two weeks in this lovely gated community but we were not impressed with this condo in particular. This is our second year staying in one of these buildings and I have to admit that this will be my last time. The view from the balcony was terrible, we faced the parking lot even though you will be told that you can clearly see the marina, you can't. The walls were so thin that you could hear all the other neighbors in their condos during the day and night. If you have kids I definitely wouldn't recommend this unit because it is not child friendly. The play pen is broken and we had to use that as a crib for my toddler. Pest control knocked on our door to ask us if we had any pests to kill because apparently it is common in that building. The hallways were always dirty because of daily vandalism. The beds were so uncomfortable because the mattresses were so old. In addition, the owner takes a large deposit in case of damage and if you clearly read the contract it states that anything that gets broken, the owner is entitled to take an additional sum of money on top of anything that breaks even if the value is $5. There was also damage on the side of the fridge that was already there when we arrived and the owner was planning on taking the entire amount from us but because we insisted that the damage was already there they decided to take a smaller amount . I believe that the owners intentions are to find anything wrong with the unit in order to take your deposit. I would not recommend this unit to anyone.

I don't waste time with review unless... they deserve recognitions

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect.

Everything was clean. No Bugs to be found. Comfortable and roomy. This condo was pleasant, quiet and in a secure community. Nice Pool area with chef BBQ.

Very good attention to service by Ricky over e-mail. Everything was in line with description and he was available to answer questions. The master Bed mattress was a little soft but OK. The dishes were all new or in good shape. Everything worked. Towels of very good quality and clean. Soap and shampoo was even there.

Overall, well worth the value.

The best vacation of the year.

  • 5 of 5

Although the year has just begun, I can say with certainty that it was the best vacation of the whole 2016th. We really enjoyed every day of our stay. The place looked great and gorgeous.There was enough sun, heat, greenery and freshness in our apartment. We found everything what we were looking for. The personnel was always friendly and respectful. The manager showed a high level of professional attitude with the date of the reservation until our return home.

Fully satisfied!!! I want back my vacation.
