Water is an Issue
It is a beautiful room but with A Big Problem of Poor Quality Water. We were really surprised to see that the owner had not installed the equipment to clean the water. As a result, water in kitchen, bath, toilet was Yellow & NOT Fit for Daily Consumption.
I wish they had mentioned this Water Issue in the advertisement, We would have looked elsewhere.
The owner was pleasant when we brought up the issue, she alleged that it was a problem all over s. Miami.
I wish the vacationer would have brought this up directly instead of making the review about this.
Our water system is a well. We get water from the aquifer, and all water is processed. Our water color changes due to higher or lower levels of various minerals in the water, however water is monitored and checked for safety. Our water meets and exceeds the quality of city water, and is 100% potable. I also provide bottles of water for our guests in case they wish to drink those.
Perfect for two
My husband and I absolutely loved this property. Beautifully styled with all the amenities. The owner was a gracious host. While you are out in a unique
and quiet neighborhood (except the roosters 😁), you are close to streets and freeways to get you where you want to go in Miami. We will definitely be back.
You’re the exclusive guest at a private resort
This is a pool cabana at a beautiful private home. The setting is really pretty and your ‘home away from home’ has all the amenities you need to be entirely self sufficient.
Other than soap, shampoo and dish soap, you’ll need to bring your personal items (though there was a hair dryer, cotton swabs and cotton balls), plus Martha (our hostess) graciously supplied us with some water and soda, and ever so sweetly, mangoes from her trees. We went in the last two weeks of June and it was mango season.
Thanks for that Martha! :)
There are cookware and dishes, plus a full stove, oven, fridge and washer/dryer, towels, pool towels, tv, and clock. The closet is set for you to fully unpack if you choose to.
The pool is a nice size, 6-feet deep, for swimming and cooling off. Though it rained when we were there so I couldn’t use it often enough.
The unit has a spa feel to it and was nice to come back to after a day of sightseeing.
For the record,we also stayed at a pricier resort on the keys but it by no means had the privacy nor personal touches that this place does.
The bed was comfortable, the shower was spa-like, and the kitchen is there if you choose to cook.
The entrance is gated so you’re also very safe.
You do see the family but hardly much.
There are animals on and near property, which you’ll hear (roosters, dogs, cats) but they weren’t ever a bother. The dogs greeted you vocally but then quieted. As animal owners, we liked that.
We’d stay again. Thanks Martha!
P.s. this was our first use of homeaway and the first time we’ve stayed at a private home. Happy with both!
The property was very nice and quiet even with the animals around the area, the family there were very friendly and hospitable I will be returning to Miami again and if available I will be coming here.Thank you for having us!
The room and the accommodations were beautiful the bed was comfortable everything was clean. The chickens are a delight and not a bother.
Easy access to all the things you want to do in Miami.
The owner did not greet us or see us while we were there. We had some questions so it would have been nice if we could have talked to them.
Would definitely stay there again.
Thank you for your wonderful review! I am sorry I wasn’t home during your stay. I was out of the country. I hope you found everything enjoyable.
I look forward to meeting you in any future stays!
