Wonderful house, great outdoor space, awesome owners!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about our experience. First of all, Ketty was great to work with from the start. From my questions before we even rented the home, she was always very prompt in getting back to me. During the rental, she was always a quick call or text away. Both she and her husband were a pleasure to work with.

The home was perfect for our stay - it was my wife and I, our three girls (10, 8, 5) and my in-laws. The younger girls loved the room with bunk beds, my wife and I took the master, the in-laws really appreciated there was another king bed in the home, and my oldest daughter liked having her own room with a queen. The girls liked playing the piano in the home, and between the dining room and 2 living areas, there was plenty of space to spread out and play. The kitchen was definitely large enough for all of our needs. But really we spent most of our time outside. The backyard is really quite private with all of the vegetation. There is plenty of seating and poolside lounge chairs available, in addition to the hammock which my girls loved. We usually had coffee, breakfast and dinner outside. We generally cooked dinner on the grill and visited around the "tiki bar" area - nice touch that there was a full propane tank and backup available. Weather was perfect during our stay so for a family visiting from the cold Midwest, we pretty much lived out back! My girls were in the pool for hours every day and the adults appreciated the hot tub in the evening.

Overall, the house is a great size, nicely laid out, and well kept in a nice neighborhood. The outdoor space is amazing and I think the owners are justified in calling it a "retreat" as it was very relaxing and enjoyable for us. The thing that puts this house over the top is the owners - Ketty is so awesome to work with and you will have no regrets if you choose to rent here. Happy travels!

Beautiful Property...Bad Customer Service

  • 1 of 5

NO PRIVACY, BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Charged for property damage on something we didn't do!

Owner's Response: Mr. Guzman, It is unfortunate that you felt the need to engage in libel. I can assure you, we did not provide bad customer service (Please reference our other 38 five star reviews). We had numerous complaints from neighbors, stating they saw many people coming in and out of the house (sorry if you felt there is no privacy, because there are neighbors who live around this property, so yes you're correct, there is no reasonable expectation of privacy when you are outside in public, in the front yard of any property), not to mention you and your guests were making excessive noise, you invited more people than the amount of guests you opted to pay for to stay overnight (this is unacceptable by the way) along with showing a total disregard for our property by damaging an expensive suede seat cushion because you or your friends decided it was okay to smoke in our house (the rules clearly state you may not smoke inside the house, ashtrays are provided outside). We had to hire a steam cleaning company to get the stench out of the furniture and rugs, along with extra cleaning crew members to clean up the property, you left excessive trash around the property, I will not mention the rest because in all honesty it's repulsive. So to be clear, this is what your deposit was used for, which did not even cover the whole amount. We also initiated a case with Homeaway, which they closed because we were able to provide proper documented evidence (photographs of the property as soon as you left).We do appreciate your feedback and I am sorry you felt that we provided bad customer service and no sense of privacy. Thank you, Property Manager

We really enjoyed this place; especially the pool and backyard space. Would definitely rent again.

  • 4 of 5

We were there with small children and while the pool isn't fenced, the locks on the doors from the house to the pool were a little too complicated for little fingers. The indoor and outdoor kitchens were well appointed making it easy to cook for ourselves when we chose to. The owner was great to work with and very responsive. We would definitely go there again if in the area.

Phenomenal House

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house and people to deal with. Ketty is incredible to deal with, this is roughly the 6th residence we booked through VRBO and no one has shown us the attention Ketty did from the time we got to the house. The house was perfect for the 9 of us to celebrate our daughters graduation from the University of Miami. The house is close to Coral Gables, roughly 20 minutes from downtown Miami. 5 minutes from either the Florida Turnpike and US1. The house has all the amenities you need for hosting a small or large group of people. The house is well maintained and the backyard and pool are fantastic.

Thank you Ketty for making our celebration great. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is situated in a very quiet, upmarket neighbourhood - all of the surrounding houses and gardens are equally impressive. The house is very smart and well maintained. The mature garden is well tended and completely private. Pool was spotlessly clean. Large covered outside veranda is great for socialising. Ketty and her husband were very friendly and helpful. Our deposit was returned within 3 days. Can't fault anything - highly recommended!!!

Wonderful!

Ketty was great to work with. She made sure everything was ready for us and that we were comfortable. The house has plenty of space and the pool and hot tub entertained the kids for hours! Thank you for a stress free vacation!
