About Julio Alvarez

I am married and live in this house with my kids. This is our home! I was born in Cuba (been in Miami since I was two) and my wife Kate is from Bolivia. I have three kids - one in in Boston University and the other two are 10 and 12 and live in our home.

I work in Telecommunications traveling throughout the Caribbean and Central America. My wife is an entrepreneur managing a couple of business and the kids.

We are spending the summer - June, July and August in Bolivia and would like to rent our home to a family that would enjoy its beauty as much as we do.

We will provide many local tips to make your visit memorable.

Julio Alvarez purchased this house in 2005

Why Julio Alvarez chose Miami

The beauty of this property is the lake. We love to entertain and when friends go to the backyard they almost always have the same comments:

- This is gorgeous back here.

- It's so peaceful that you forget that you are in the heart of Miami.

- I've lived in this area for years and did not know this lake was out here.

- Do you swim here? Do you have alligators :).

The lake is a closed of lake surrounded by homes - no GATORS!! It is spring fed, full of bass, and great for swimming - especially in the summer.

What makes this house unique

Awesome home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go south for a week's early summer vacation and saw this property listed. We booked it and glad we did so. The house is a mini-resort: beautiful and clean inside, well kept landscaping, a cool lake in the back, and the covered terrace invite you to stay there and not need go anywhere else. The house has a great a/c to keep you comfortable should you decide not to enjoy Miami's warmth. It did not rain the whole week, so it was perfect. Grocery stores, restaurants (all types of restaurants because of proximity to this city called Coral Gables and also South Miami) and mall are all within a ten-minute drive. The beaches are very close too. Highly recommended, you will be happy to stay in this location.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this centrally located home. It had everything we needed and then some. The house is tucked away on a beautiful lake with tropical foliage and a very relaxing shaded deck in the back. We spent many nights enjoying drinks, grilling, and the peacefulness of the natural setting in the back yard. The interior was very well appointed and had all the modern conveniences. We will definitely be back next year!!

This home is located in the heart of Miami. You are close to downtown Coral Gables, South Miami, Coconut Grove, and minutes away from Key Biscayne, and Miami Beach.

While in the heart of the city, Coral Lake provides a great setting for paddle boating, fishing, swimming, or just enjoying the sunset.

Many UM students rent nearby because of the proximity to the school. 5 minutes on bike!

Also, if you love to bicycle, you are in a great location to cycle through Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami. Beautiful neighborhoods, great restaurants, lots of shaded streets.

We are foodies, so let us know and we will point you in the right direction.
