Perfectly Situated, Perfectly Quiet

  • 5 of 5

I came with my teenage son and daughter to drop off my daughter at UM, so this was set to be a pretty stressful trip for me! However, I immediately began to relax the minute we arrived and were greeted by the owner. Ada, thank you! Your guest house is so lovely. It was perfectly situated for the college and every store we needed in order to get my daughter settled in! And yet I could start the day with my coffee and end it with my glass of wine in such a peaceful, private setting, by your pool. We found a variety of restaurants and mostly relaxed in our home from home! The basketball court and pool were immaculate. And the house - spotlessly clean, with some unexpected finishing touches that made our arrival a little extra special. Thank you again Ada and hope to stay with you on our next visit!

We were 5 people including my son and his family with 9 and 13 year old children.

The place was perfect, spacious, clean and a large pool in front and tennis, basketball in back. So there was plenty to do when not being out and about. Actually the kids wanted to just "hang out" instead of going places at times. So it was very relaxing. Close to lots of places, we especially liked going to Mattheson Hammock. Pretty neighborhood and felt very safe. The owners are very respectful of your privacy.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 21 month old son and I just returned from a week at this property and we are all dying to go back already! The inside of this guest house is well appointed, spacious and SO clean. I can't say enough about how clean it was, and the attention to detail was obvious in every space. From coffee and fixings, freezer packs, ample clean quality linen, all kitchen utensils, info on attractions, books, toiletries, BBQ and pool floaters, new high chair and playpen, this place had it all. Located in a gorgeous high end community, the gated and fenced property felt completely safe and was well lit at night. The pool was immaculate and refreshing and the basketball/tennis court had balls and rackets for use. Great location, great house and a very friendly and helpful owner - for once I have no complaints 😊. We will be back!

Down for a quick Miami trip

  • 5 of 5

Situated in Pinecrest close to US 1, so if you know South Miami you know that is the place to be. Very easy to get onto 826 or the Turnpike and with very easy reach to shopping and restaurants, I walked a couple to times to local stores, who does that in Miami?

The guest house is bright and spacious in areas that matter, namely the living and kitchen area and master bedroom. Everything was clean and fresh with plenty of spare towels for our use. Even shampoo and conditioner available!

Too bad it was not swimming pool weather as the patio area is huge and the pool very inviting. Not to mention the tennis court area, which gives a luxurious hotel type atmosphere but within our own private home.

We will definitely keep this home in mind when returning to Miami. Thanks Ada !

We Love this place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting Ada's guesthouse, and definitely not our last! It felt so great walking back into this Awesome, clean, spacious place! It is easy to feel at home in this inviting, amazingly private guesthouse! Alicia really appreciates the coffee creamers you had when we arrived! We have 3 children, and they really enjoy visiting this place! Entertaining the children is easy with the pool and basketball/tennis court! We are amazed at how well and fast Ada takes care of everything! She pushed for parts and service to repair the adjustability feature of the basketball hoop while we were there for just a few days. We would recommend this place with 100% confidence to anyone that they would enjoy their stay! Thank you very much for making your place available!!!

Pinecrest Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time I stayed at Ada's beautiful Key West style cottage in the heart of Pinecrest. I was in temporary housing at the Residence Inn and quickly looked for something roomier during my corporate relocation and landed upon this beautiful cottage on VRBO. The landlord was very professional and welcoming and made us feel like we were at home and not just tenants. The cottage is extremely well located in this southern suburb of Miami. The unit is welll laid out with three bedrooms, bath, kitchen, and living room. All the finishes are first rate and the pool, tennis court and basketball make you feel like you're on vacation instead in temporary housing. The unit is perfect for corporate relos and vacation renters. I highly recommend this location for anyone looking for a luxury rental in the Miami suburbs as it's close to the mall, beach, churches, and major highways. In fact, I've told the landlord when she's ready to sell, I'd be interested in buying.
