The area is just wonderful and everything is close by: beaches, excellent restaurants, public golf and tennis courses, grocery stores, a secluded intracoastal park with fitness trail, tennis courts, movie theatres and stores. Also Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach and Palm Beach are great spots to visit within a short time.

Very poor property and unprofessional owner

  • 1 of 5

Warning! It has now been 7 weeks since we vacated the property and have not received our deposit back or had any response from the owner despite numerous emails. We left the property how we found it. Claude please contact us.

When booking the property all communication was swift. Questions dealt with very quickly (shame this is not the case since we left). We were very excited to stay at the property after reading all of the reviews.

When we arrived at the property we couldn't believe that these 5 star reviewers had stayed in the same property. It's worlds away from being 'immaculate' and is in desperate need of a good freshen up. The whole property smelled stale (we ended up buying our own air fresheners just to mask the smell), the furniture in the back porch was filthy, the floors were filthy, wardrobes broken, wires laying around outside (be careful if you have kids), stained sheets (which I was told is 'not policy' to replace - disgusting), signs EVERYWHERE telling you the rules, it's like being back at school. We had to clean the place ourselves and wash the bedding just to make it liveable. Pool was filthy, full of dirt, leaves and debris, had to wait 4 days for this to be cleaned.

We were trying to be positive, we're in sunny Florida! Went to have a shower and the pipes were blocked which caused both bathrooms to flood along with an even worse smell that covered up the musky smell from before. I emailed Claude and was told there is a plunger in the garage - this didn't work (he also implied we had blocked this ourselves which we certainly hadn't as there was a giant sign above the toilet reminding everyone not to flush anything but toilet paper!). Claude sent someone over to fix it who then spent most of the day removing sand from the pipes from previous guests and apologised (no apology from the owner though, he doesn't like negative feedback).

As per previous reviews, the wifi was poor, I had to constantly turn off the wifi on my phone as it kept disconnecting (and before they reply that I might have been far away from the property, I wasn't).

Only positive is the location, close to beach, shops and golf club which is good as you won't want to spend much time at the property.

The whole group of us were pretty miserable which is a shame as we had travelled from the UK for this holiday. It seems that the owners refuse to take any constructive feedback onboard. Hopefully they listen to this feedback rather than telling me I'm wrong.

I only need one word ....OUTSTANDING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, beautiful spot, great location, everything the pictures show and more. The villa is more like a private resort than a rental.

I have vacationed in many parts of the world but if you are looking for a relaxing warm weather spot in a magnificent home close to the beach this is it. Restaurants, shopping, beach, oceanwalk, playground, golf course, everything you need is nearby.

The management and staff are very friendly and responsive. The villa is updated, all furniture, bedsheets, appliances etc. are new and it was very clean at our arrival. The backyard is unique and the landscaping is very nice, especially the Banyan tree providing natural shade. And since the property is so large, my daughters had plenty of spots to enjoy their sunbathing sessions as well.

On a scale from one to 10 this is a 10.

Great house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as presented online, and the garden was even bigger and better than what you see in the images.

The owner Claude gave prompt answers to all our questions and had everything in order even if it all was remotely arranged by him from Europe. We stayed in the house with two kids (3 and 6 yrs) who really enjoyed the heated pool, the little play house and the big garden, and even indoor toys. Even though this house is located right at the canal, your kids are safe behind the fence down by the water.

The location is great, with just a few minutes drive to a grocery store and restaurant, and 10 minutes to the beach. The Intracostal Waterway is just a couple of hundred meters away, and we even had a family member visiting us with his sail boat in the canal just by the house.

The interior was clean and nice with all kitchen supplies you might need, wifi (although a bit slow and unstable), and cable tv.

All in all this was a great place to stay and I would really recommend it - especially to families traveling with children!

Owner's Response: Dear Anders and family! Thank you so much for your lovely comments, we truly appreciate! As for the Wifi/WLAN, it is however neither slow nor unstable. Claude is an IT- and network engineer who works a lot remotely over the Internet. Claude is also the person who spends more time than anyone else at this property and an unstable Internet connection wouldn't be an option for us since we need it for work. The WiFi/WLAN works flawlessly inside the house and in a 60 feet (about 20 meters) perimeter around it. This is the normal range for a single access point. Since the backyard is so large, currently not all outdoor areas are covered yet by the WiFi/WLAN. We are planning to add additional WLAN access points just for the outdoor areas in August 2016 to optimally cover all remaining areas. We look forward to having you back again another time at our place. Thanks again for your kindness! Warm regards, Nicole & Claude

Wonderful house for relaxing and enjoying south Florida

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described and pictured. Easy access to everything you would want, either by walking or driving - groceries, restaurants, movie theater, etc are all within a 5-10 minute drive. There's a large enclosed room and lots of shade outback that are wonderful places to relax. The house was very clean and well maintained. The owner is very responsive in answering questions before your arrival. Love the digital door lock making looking for a misplaced or 'lost' key unnecessary. You'll not be disappointed if you choose this house.

Perfect holiday location!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. A three minutes - drive to the beach, with a great reef for snorkeling or diving. The house and the backyard are huge, the pictures don't do it justice.

Everything is new, everything works, and it has everything you could possibly need.

The constant ocean breeze makes it pleasant on any of the outdoor decks/patios, and the private dock or the lounge by the canal are perfect to watch as the sun sinks into the horizon. We stayed with another couple and there is plenty of room for a crowd of guests, or to be alone if you prefer. There are a lot of good restaurants in various price categories in the vicinity, but if you want to cook for yourself the kitchen is modern and well designed, or you can use the gas grill.

Although we didn't need anything, the owner was very friendly and gave us some great tips for restaurants. The house book has suggestions and they are all excellent. The pool is great and crystal clear and the patio furniture is comfortable.

The neighborhood is quiet and seems to be very safe.

We loved the house and will be back next year.

Magnificent views, beautifully decorated and luxurious house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation, we received great service from the owner and his staff.

The villa is very attractive and comfortable, the view is amazing and the pool is crystal clear and very relaxing as is the entire backyard. There are many toys for kids and our kids were so happy playing with them for days.

There are many good restaurants in the area, but the kitchen is also very well equipped and the outdoor barbeque made us very happy!

We hope we will be able to come back, it was an excellent stay at Claude's place!
