Guestbook comments from the owner

Bringing my family to the States during our school brake in Central America (we use calender year) decide to use this property as our Home Base, being so close to I75 we were able to dine at Joes Stone Crabs in South Beach, and get there in 35 minutes,(yes my kids have good taste, my fault)and be down at the Dolphin Mall in Miami as well as the Saw grass Mall, Sunrise 15 minutes, Dine in Fort Lauderdale even made it to Boca Raton, even made it to Disney Universal and Lego Land for a short period of time about 3.5 hours away, and got back to the enjoyment of the pool and Bar B Q and new playground, the staff was very nice, thanks Roxane for peeking up all that mess of Lego's the kids left behind and send it to us and Jose for all the little special touches, will be back soon, Thanks Guillermo Santana

What a fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable and inviting home. The property surrounding this stately colonial is very peaceful. The pond brought in the birds and the songs of the frogs would put you to sleep at night. The home itself is made for fun with the beautiful pool and the entertaining areas including the bar and pool table. The property manager, Manny, was very helpful and on- the-spot whenever needed. The only downside is that the bedrooms are upstairs, which is typical in a colonial; but can be difficult for people with bad knees. The good news is that the master suite is just that, SWEET! The upstairs laundry was also a plus as well as the balcony with a hot tub. You won't be disappointed with this rental, the owner or the property management of this beautiful spot.

Beautiful, relaxing vacation home near Miami

  • 5 of 5

We planned a very spur of the moment vacation to FL. Willie and his team were very accommodating to set us up with such short notice. The home was very clean and spacious. It had all the needed amenities. Our children, ages 19, 16, 13 and 9 enjoyed the heated outdoor pool and the billiard room! We would recommend this home to our friends!

What a great house to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this incredible estate for five months while our home nearby was being remodeled. The spaciousness, ambience and amenities were second to none. Lots of elbow room and comfort. Our two dogs loved to run around the fenced in yard giving us a great sense of security and hominess! I highly recommend it whether a short or long stay. Willie and his team made us feel right at home and took care of all our needs.

Second time even better than the first time!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we rented the house and everything went great again. The house was perfect for our two families (4 adults and 4 small children) to get together and enjoy some nice weather. We even hosted several extended family gatherings as it if was our own house. The layout and facilities made this very easy. As with any rental, things will always pop up that you cannot plan for but when they did, Manny (local property manager) was quick to respond and solve our problems. All in all, we had a great time and I would highly recommend renting this house to anyone!

We found our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had been putting off a trip down to Florida to visit family for a while. With 6 of us, we knew the expense would be great....then we found this rental listing. It was great! Thank you for helping to make our family stay so memorable and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool, while the adults enjoyed the pool table and ping-pong. We traveled with our two little dogs who loved running the open yard spaces. It was definitely a special time and we'll be back again soon!
