Did not meet our expectations

  • 2 of 5

Good location with lots of Privacy as described. The house is spacious and clean. Lots of Parking. But for the price we paid for one week, it was not worth it. The Amenities expected for this price were extremely lacking. The Plumbing needs work: faucet in downstairs bathroom runs constantly and if 2nd BR shower is turned on a bit too high, it sprays all over the bathroom ceiling, walls. We had one (1) wash cloth for both bathrooms upstairs. Two face towels for both baths upstairs. We contacted Mgmt about this without satisfaction. We had to purchase additional wash cloths, towels, bar soap, toilet paper (not anticipated in a Luxurious Rental home). No top sheet in Master bedroom. No convenient electrical outlets near Master bath sink/mirror for shaving, curling irons, hair dryer - we used downstairs bathroom for this.

The 'Futons' are of extraordinarily hard leather which are uncomfortable and unusable.

The metal Spiral Staircase was a problem for us. Lugging heavy suitcases up this narrow winding thing is a chore.

We rented a Condo for half the price for our second week that had all the expected amenities including an extra "Welcome basket" in each bathroom with all needed toiletries and more. It felt like we were welcomed and appreciated. What a difference.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I don't think we could have asked for anything more from a vacation home. A very nice, secured and quiet neighbourhood, within close proximity to whatever you need, as well as whatever you think you may need. The rooms are quite comfortable and the view is priceless! With two kids, having a pool there was just icing on the cake. Maura was a pleasure to deal with, and always responding on time and with a solution to whatever question you may have. This was definitely an amazing house and would consider it again in a heartbeat!

Ideal Retreat for Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked Casa Maria for the long MLK Holiday weekend. We were a multi-generational party of 8 - ages 5 to 60. Casa Maria provided us with ideal, well appointed and clean accommodations for our stay. The open floor plan bringing together the kitchen and living space was great for spending time family time. The property is located in a quiet neighborhood and the gated community provides an extra sense of security and no-nonsense. The house is great for a family. I have 3 active boys, so the pool, yard and washing machine were put to good use. We found it extremely convenient to get to all points in Miami and Miami Beach. Booking was easy and the management staff is very responsive. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

We go to Miami each year and get a Townhome on the Ocean. This year we were looking for a bigger place to rent. I came accross this home on VRBO. I was a little worried not being on the ocean, but I will tell you, I LOVED this home, I loved the location, and I loved having our own privacy! The home is close enough to the beach, we walked there one day, rented bikes another, and drove the others. But we enjoyed the most just relaxin by our own pool and jacuzzi. The inside of the home was beutiful as well! The Views are gorgeous! We loved waking up to the sun rise over the bay. I will be back EVERY year! If I could move into this home year around I would, but for now I will just have to enjoy it as a yearly vacation home.

Perfect stay at our 25th mariage anniversery

  • 5 of 5

Our stay for 11 days at Casa Maria was perfect. For trips and to the beach, you are fast at your spot. The house was clean, the pool was good, the view was perfect.

It's a pleasure staying there!
