Our cute ranch home is located in the Bonanza area of Homestead, Florida. It has been fully remodeled and decorated to enjoy both the comfort and rustic charms of a country property. It has a master bedroom with walking closet and bathroom, a double twin bed room and a third bedroom with a queen size bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and beautifully decorated, adjacent you can find the laundry with more custom cabinets and a full size sink. The living room is an open concept area with a large dining room table and chairs. The home has a quaint outdoor dining area with a gazebo surrounded by fruit trees and an amazing Argentinian style barbecue for your parrillada, it has a large solid dining table for your outdoor meals.

You can enjoy the country life while being only thirty minutes away from Miami or Key Largo. Disconnect and relax in an authentic ranch home where you can have breakfast and enjoy looking at our horses or eating fruit from our trees when in season.

The property has a little house totally separated from the main house, it is located at the end next to the barn. We have a married couple who live there and take care of our horses. We also have two black and white friendly dogs living on the property, but they are outside dogs.

Must love animals ❤️🐴🐶

About Montse

We are Montse and Ivan. I have been an educator for more than twenty years and my husband owns a business. We are very family oriented, and we love the outdoor activities. We are a very traditional family that enjoys the country and likes barbecuing and horseback riding.

Montse purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Montse chose World

We are a family who enjoys the outdoor activities and we are animal lovers. Buying this property was like a dream come true, we have always wanted to have our own place to keep our horses and enjoy the country life. People in the Redlands area of Homestead are very friendly and family oriented and throughout the years we have made great friends in the area. We go horseback riding along the canals, we host barbecues, visit the nearby winery, eat some pan con bistec at the local market places in Krome Ave. We are very close to the Keys, Everglades National Park, Homestead Raceway, Homestead Rodeo grounds, Robert is Here... and at the same time we are only thirty minutes away from Miami. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of the country life, away from the city traffic.

Geweldig huis van alle gemakken voorzien

  • 5 of 5

We hebben een week verbleven op deze schitterende ranche. Paarden en honden maken dit tot een echte range. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en de eigenaren zijn super vriendelijk en staan open voor alle vragen en geven goede aanbevelingen.

Voor ons was het enige nadeel dat alles minimaal 10 kilometer van de ranche lag en je dus voor een klein boodschapje 20 minuten moest rijden.

Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

Great for a family

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay in Homestead, and we are delighted to give this rental our highest recommendation. The house had everything we look for in a place to stay and more. The "everything we look for" means that the home was clean, well maintained and conveyed a home-like atmosphere in every way. The air conditioner was delightfully efficient (a plus for those of us who are not acclimated to the Florida climate.) Plus the single floor and spacious living/dining room were perfect for our family, which includes two elderly parents with mobility restrictions.

The "more" descriptor refers to the amenities, such as the outdoor seating area. There is a horse and some dogs on the adjoining property, which our daughter became fast friends with. In addition, we found the property owners to be easy to access and hospitable. In sum, we were very satisfied with our stay, and would certainly recommend it to those seeking lodging in the area.

Relaxing house close to National Parks

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great yard, super friendly owners and neighbors! Friendly pets (dogs, horses, chicken). Great for kids to play and explore outdoors. Great location for going to Biscayne NP, the Everglades, the keys and Miami! Also try to keep one day free to explore local wineries, farmers markets etc (on great advice of the owner). We loved our stay here with our extended family including little kids and babies. Thanks a lot!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Location is in rural area so not a place to stay if you want to be near everything. (GPS doesnt take you to the correct address).We felt as we were at home. Beautiful country area. Enjoyed listening to all the wildlife early in the morning. Owners very tentative and detailed oriented. We really appreciated all the extra amenities such as toiletries, salt, pepper, coffee, trash bags etc. Its a hassel when you have to purchase these items. We will definitely be back!

Family Spring Break vacation April 2-5 2018

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented homes through VRBO for vacation in the past, and we have always been happy with our choices, but this home by far has been the best house we have stayed at. The house was extremely comfortable, fully stocked, well-maintained, plenty of space, comfortable beds and couch, excellent Direct TV availability in the living room and master bedroom, kitchen was excellent and the house and grounds were very well-maintained and clean. We personally were looking to stay in the country-side and really enjoyed the gardens and the dogs and horse that were friendly and available to be petted, yet also calm and fine on their own as well. The caretakers in the back house were very quiet - we never felt them yet they were friendly and available to help and answer questions as needed. The Redland area is loaded with nurseries, fruit orchards, and many farm houses - getting around was easy since the area is mapped in a grid. Grocery stores were within driving distance and you can always find the basics at the local gas stations as well. My sons and I one day spent an afternoon at Biscayne Park which was about half hour from the house while my husband worked from the house - we swam and also rented a canoe and had a great time - we stopped and had cold coconut water and bought avocados home, we also had a great Cuban panini on the way home. Second day we drove to the Florida Keys - it was a long day and a lot of driving - but well-worth it - we took our time stopping for Cuban lunch, then a swim at the Bahia Honda public beach, and went all the way to Key West which is a lovely town with quaint shops and restaurants and chickens roaming the streets - we had key lime pie at Kermit's which was excellent. Next day we took a trip to Safari Park for a boat ride through the Everglades and a crocodile show which our sons loved. Last day after checking out of the house - we drove into Miami Little Havana for our last Cuban lunch and then took a walk along South Beach. The weather during our stay in early April was awesome - low 80's - warm enough for swimming and shorts yet not melting away. The afternoons at the Deseada house were lovely with comfortable breezes - my husband and I loved sitting out in the porch with the dogs to enjoy a glass of wine. Lovely home - well decorated, a home away from home! Thank you Montse!
